As a Shamanic Practitioner, I seek to be honest, open, and truthful, behaving in a trustworthy manner where my practice is transparent. I am committed to and maintain my personal and communal spiritual practices, seeing my commitment to my own spiritual development as a life-long process.
I am open, honest, and accurate in representing affiliations and methods of working, and do not make unjustifiable claims about competence.
I work ethically and with careful consideration of how I fulfil my legal obligations.
I maintain professional and personal boundaries between my work with clients and what lies outside that work.
I avoid any conflict of interests.
I address differences with my client such as issues of complaint and take appropriate action where we cannot resolve them.
I nurture self-knowledge.
I strive to be trustworthy, honouring the trust placed in the practitioner.
I am also open and honest with all relevant organisations.
I distinguish between spiritual direction and other forms of 1:1 helping relationships such as counselling, and ensure clients understand the type of support I am offering.


I am providing my services to a proficient standard. I value continuing development and the maintenance of competence, recognising the limits of my knowledge, skill, training, education, and experience. I know the limits of my competence and when to suggest the need of additional or refer to alternative support from others e.g., shamanic colleagues, counsellors, or doctors…
I take responsibility for and am committed to the on-going personal and professional
development of my skills through attending workshops, training days and courses.
I am committed to on-going growth of my knowledge and awareness through studying sacred texts, theology, spirituality, psychology, and other disciplines related to spiritual direction. I continually monitor my own practice and take action to serve the best interests of my clients and students.


I am committed to developing and maintaining my knowledge, skills, and capabilities to practice safely, ethically, and legally.
I agree with clients how we will work together: stating clearly terms and conditions, fees (if any) and methods of practice.
I keep up to date with the law, regulations, and any other requirements to my work.
I keep accurate and appropriate records.
