Clinical compliments, complaints and feedback policy
At HelloSelf we pride ourselves on delivering evidenced based psychological therapy that is safe, effective, and enables every one of our members to be their best self. We work hard to ensure everyone has an excellent experience of working with us.
HelloSelf welcomes compliments, complaints, and feedback, as we see them as opportunities to learn and further enhance the experiences of our members, referrers, partners, and associates. Our clinicians work with our members collaboratively and therapy is tailored to a person’s goals and needs. Throughout treatment our therapists consistently ask their members for feedback on therapy. HelloSelf also contacts members individually after every session to gain feedback. We provide a feedback questionnaire at the end of treatment for our members to complete. This provides an opportunity to give quantitative and qualitative areas for improvement and compliments. Consent is gained to publish compliments on our website and any identifiable information is removed.
We ensure all complainants are carefully listened to and that we have investigated and managed their concerns appropriately. We always work within the Health & Care Professions Council standards of conduct, performance, and ethics, and the British Psychological Society’s Practice Guidelines. We will ensure that in managing concerns and complaints it complies with confidentiality and data protection policies.
