Since 26 May 2011, the law now states that cookies on websites can only be used with your specific consent. Psychotherapy Excellence uses cookies in the operation of the site in a number of areas. If you choose not to accept our cookies, some services on this site may not be available to you.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file of data, often incorporating a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or mobile phone browser from a website's computer. This data file stores the information you provide us with and in doing so enables us to 'remember' you on repeat visit, effectively letting you move around the site without having to keep reintroducing yourself. Most browsers accept cookies automatically, but you can set your browser to prevent this. If your browser's preferences allow it, each website or third party service provider is able to send a cookie to your browser. However, to protect your privacy, your browser only allows these websites or third party service providers to access cookies already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites or other third party service providers.
