Professional Code Of Ethics
At Soul Being, we believe quality of care is extremely important.
Whether you are a client looking for preventative health services or a wellness professional that wants to connect with peers; the members of our community all value a holistic, empowered approach to well-being. That is why every Professional in our network abides by this Code of Ethics:
- Integrity: Be honest and direct in all activities and communications. Maintain transparency with clients about pricing and what takes place during treatments/sessions.
- Gratitude: Be grateful for your clients. Always treat them with the same respect and appreciation you wish to receive. It is a privilege to practice all forms of care.
- Confidentiality: Clients have their right to privacy. Never disclose personal information about a client without their written consent.
- Refer: You are an ambassador for all wellness professionals. Recognize when there may be a therapy or other practitioner that may be a better fit for your client. Acknowledge that different therapies work in conjunction with one another for the whole health of a client. If you’re not having success with someone, encourage them to explore alternatives. Get them the help they need, even if that is not with you.
- Accountability: It is your responsibility to provide clients with relevant information and quality care. Hold yourself to high ethical standards personally and professionally. Abstain from use of drugs or alcohol during all professional activities. Maintain all necessary licenses, certifications and insurance required to perform any services for a client.
- Trust: Be trustworthy. Deal fairly and equitably with your clients and other wellness professionals. Do not diagnose a client unless you are qualified to do so.
- Listen: Be present with your clients. Give them your undivided attention. Do not interrupt them, do not rush them, and do not assume. Admit what you do not know.
- Follow Up: Do what you say you are going to do. Check in with your clients periodically. Cultivate a continuous relationship.
- Compassion: Practice empathy. Be considerate and caring.
- Freedom: Accept that you are a facilitator. You can educate, encourage, and guide, but you cannot make decisions for your clients. What they choose to do is up to them. Their healing and health is ultimately their responsibility.
