Santou Carter T/A Grief Support Services, knows that you care how information about you is used and shared and we appreciate your trust in us to do that respectfully, carefully and sensibly. This notice describes our Privacy Policy and forms part of our website terms and conditions (“Website Terms”).  

By accepting our Website Terms or by visiting (“the Website”) you are accepting and consenting to the practices described in this Privacy Policy.  The Website is brought to you by Santou Carter T/A Grief Support Services 

Santou Carer T/A Grief Support Services believes it is important to protect your Personal Data (as defined in the Data Protection Act 1998) and we are committed to giving you a personalised service that meets your needs in a way that also protects your privacy.  

This policy explains how we may collect Personal Data about you. It also explains some of the security measures we take to protect your Personal Data, and tells you certain things we will do and not do. You should read this policy in conjunction with the Website Terms. 

When we first obtain Personal Data from you, or when you take a new service or product from us, we will give you the opportunity to tell us if you do or do not want to receive information from us about other services or products (as applicable). You can normally do this by ticking a box on an application form or contract. You may change your mind at any time by emailing us at the address on our contact page.   

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. We know it’s long, but it contains important information about how we protect, use and process any personal information you give to us. We aim to be clear when we collect your data and not do anything with the data you wouldn’t reasonably expect.

I am an experienced counsellor/ psychotherapist, trained in the importance of maintaining confidentiality. We go to great lengths to keep all your information safe. We invest in the appropriate online resources to protect your personal information from loss, misuse, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. We make sure we manage it in accordance with our legal responsibilities under applicable data protection laws. 

However, no internet-based platform, including email, is 100% secure, so we cannot be held responsible for unauthorised or unintended access that is beyond our control. When we communicate via email, there is always the possibility that email platforms can be hacked; or email transmission may not be encrypted when corresponding back and forth initially. We remain mindful of this and ensure that we do everything in our capability to protect your personal information.  To this end, I use an encrypted email service provider after initial contact and can tell you where to find a service for yourself for free, so that our subsequent correspondence is encrypted from both ends (yours and mine). 


After we have received your information, there are a few ways in which we might use it to ensure we give you the best possible service. They include: 

We will not disclose your information to any third party except in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
