If you retain the services of Cambrian Counselling and Wellness, such as through the purchase of a digital product or requesting psychotherapy, counselling, therapy, workshops, lectures, or other mental health and psychoeducation services, we will consider you have given implied informed consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information necessary to carrying out the work that we have agreed to complete for you.

At times, such as if there is particularly sensitive information involved or we would like to use previously collected information for a new purpose, we will ask you for express consent as to its collection, use, or disclosure, and will give you reasons for the request. We will ask for your consent either verbally (in person, videoconference, voice note, or over the phone), or in writing (through mail or electronic communications).
