Code of Ethics/Professional Standards:
I dedicate myself to providing compassionate and competent services, to the best of my ability, within the scope of my knowledge, training and experience.
- When a client or customer’s needs are outside of my scope of practice, or ability, I will inform him or her. If possible, I will recommend another practitioner or product provider that can better meet that person’s needs.
- If I believe that a client or customer is in need of a mental health evaluation or services, or medical examination or treatment, or legal advice or services, and I am not personally qualified in such areas, I will refer him or her to a qualified professional in the area of need. If necessary, I will delay or cancel my services with this client until I am assured that he or she is receiving competent care or services from a qualified professional.
- I never take advantage, in any way, of any client or customer, especially if I perceive them to have psychological, medical or legal problems. I never attempt to convince a client to renounce or refuse appropriate medical, legal or social services.
- I always respect the personal rights of my clients, customers, colleagues and other professionals. My clients and customers have the right to assume I will respect their privacy, and treat them with respect. I will not slander, misrepresent or make comparisons in a negative way towards my competitors, colleagues, fellow lightworkers, or other members of Onederous Tribe, or the greater community.
I represent myself to the public with a standard of professionalism and integrity. I am honest and forthright in my dealings with the public, clients, customers and colleagues and I encourage and help others to maintain this standard.
- I do not make guarantees or false claims that my services or products will produce a specific result. When I encounter difficulties or obstacles in my ability to help a client or customer, I am upfront and honest about it with them.
- My advertising and public image conveys a respect for my clients and customers, as well as a professional image of myself, my services and products, my affiliations, and of the metaphysical/spiritual community at large.
- I never harass, abuse or otherwise take advantage of clients, customers or colleagues. No matter what differences of opinion may arise, I never treat others in a disrespectful, aggressive, mean-spirited, malevolent way and never in an unwanted sexual way.
- I never charge more than agreed upon with a client or customer. I have no “hidden-fees” or “add-ons” after the stated price is agreed upon.
I am aware of the laws of the county, state, province or nation in which I provide services or products. I strive to always conform to those laws in my field of practice and/or in the providing of products to the public.
- I follow all regulations and laws that are specific to my area of service.
- I do not engage in fraud, scams, deception, or unscrupulous business practices.
- I never provide legal, financial or medical advice to my clients, unless I am specifically qualified and/or licensed to do so.
- I never knowingly put my clients or customers at risk or in danger in any way.
I am committed to excellence in my field. I will continue to study, learn and advance my knowledge and understanding of the field of service or product I supply, and in related fields, to better serve my clients and customers. I am committed to continually improving myself, personally and professionally.
