Alternatively, he could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.


He may need to request specific information from you to help confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. Dr Thomas Mundy may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

Who your information may be shared with


Dr Thomas Mundy does not share your personal information for marketing reasons and takes your privacy very seriously. He does not personally share your personal data unless individuals have a clear business need to view such data. He requires all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. At times it is necessary for Dr Thomas Mundy to share data relating to yourself. Occasions where your information may be shared are outlined below:


All Clinical Psychologists receive supervision (from another Clinical Psychologist) to monitor their effectiveness and ensure they are delivering appropriate care. Within supervision Dr Thomas Mundy may discuss aspects of aspects of your care and treatment confidentially with his supervisor to ensure he is performing his role appropriately. This is a professional requirement of being an HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist. Efforts are made not to share identifying details wherever possible with the supervisor.


In exceptional circumstances your personal information may be shared with your GP, healthcare professionals, government bodies or other relevant authorities (e.g. law enforcement agencies). Such circumstances may be where it is in the public interest, where another healthcare provider needs to know this information, or if there are serious concerns about your own safety or the safety of another individual (adult or child). Such disclosures are normally discussed in advance with yourself unless there is reason to believe that the disclosure to yourself may increase risks to yourself or other individuals.


Dr Thomas Mundy may have to share information for legal reasons with auditors (e.g. HMRC) or insurance providers (where relevant) for the purposes of billing and receiving payment. He may also have to disclose sensitive information in the form of treatment reports to the insurance provider or GP if these are requested by the insurance provider in order for Dr Thomas Mundy to undertake psychological work and receive payment for it.

Dr Thomas Mundy uses Microsoft Outlook to communicate via email. He uses Microsoft OneNote to write clinical notes in sessions and Microsoft OneDrive to store this information securely. Microsoft which is responsible for these products has its own privacy policy which can be read here: .


Every effort is made to ensure information is stored securely (see below). Email transmission cannot be guaranteed to be secure or protected from third-party access and therefore confidential information you wish to keep private should be discussed verbally in sessions or via phone. By agreeing to psychological sessions with Dr Thomas Mundy you are agreeing to Microsoft’s privacy policies with regard to his use of OneNote to write clinical notes in sessions and OneDrive to store such information.

Online therapy may involve the use of third party providers such as Zoom or Microsoft Teams. These providers have their own privacy policies and thus you should read them prior to making use of their products with Dr Thomas Mundy. Dr Thomas Mundy is not responsible for these the privacy statements of these providers, the technology they may use, any data they may gather or technological complications arising from use of these providers. Their privacy statements are available on   . Microsoft’s privacy statements may be subject to change at any time.

There is strong evidence to support the effectiveness of psychological therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. However, there are a multitude of factors that impact on therapy outcome. While Dr Thomas Mundy is committed to making these sessions supportive and successful, unfortunately he cannot guarantee results given the personal individual nature of mental health and psychological well-being. Dr Thomas Mundy cannot therefore be held liable for the outcome from therapy. If the client has concerns about any aspect of the therapy being delivered these should be discussed with Dr Thomas Mundy in the first instance in order to seek a resolution.

Any health records will be kept for a period of seven years and then securely destroyed in line with data protection law.  Clients have the right to access their data and should provide a written request to do so.  Equally, if a client is unhappy with any aspect of how their data is stored, they have a right to complain.  For further information relating to data protection please see the ‘for the public’ section of the Information Commission Office ( More information about this is also listed in my privacy policy.

Your legal rights

Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data held about you and to check that that it is being lawfully processed.

Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

Withdraw consent at any time where Dr Thomas Mundy is relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent.
