Code of Ethics

Inner Light Engineering and Susie Buck is committed to maintaining and promoting excellence, and thereby provides these standards of practice.

Confidentiality/Privacy

As a healing practitioner, I:

  • Maintain excellence by providing the strictest levels of confidentiality with all client and sponsor information unless release is required by law.
  • Have a clear agreement about how service information will be exchanged among healing practitioner, client and sponsor.
  • Have a clear agreement when acting as a healing practitioner, mentor, supervisor or trainer, with both client and sponsor, student, mentee, or supervisee about the conditions under which confidentiality may not be maintained (e.g., illegal activity, pursuant to valid court order or subpoena; imminent or likely risk of danger to self or to others; etc) and make sure both client and sponsor, student, mentee, or supervisee voluntarily and knowingly agree in writing to that limit of confidentiality. Where I reasonably believe that because one of the above circumstances is applicable, I may need to inform appropriate authorities.
  • Require all those who work with me in support of my clients to adhere to the Code of Ethics and Confidentiality and Privacy Standards, and any other sections of the Code of Ethics that might be applicable.

Professional Conduct at Large

As a healing practitioner, I:

  • Refrain from unlawful discrimination in occupational activities, including age, race, gender orientation, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, national origin or disability.
  • Make verbal and written statements that are true and accurate about what I offer as a healing practitioner
  • Accurately identify my qualifications, expertise, experience, training, certifications and credentials.
  • Recognize and honor the efforts and contributions of others and only claim ownership of my own material. I understand that violating this standard may leave me subject to legal remedy by a third party.
  • Strive at all times to recognize my personal issues that may impair, conflict with or interfere with my performance or my professional relationships. I will promptly seek the relevant professional assistance and determine the action to be taken, including whether it is appropriate to suspend or terminate my support relationship(s) whenever the facts and circumstances necessitate.
  • Recognize that the Code of Ethics applies to my relationship with clients, other healing practitioners, students, mentees and supervisees.
  • Conduct and report research with competence, honesty and within recognized scientific standards and applicable subject guidelines. My research will be carried out with the necessary consent and approval of those involved, and with an approach that will protect participants from any potential harm. All research efforts will be performed in a manner that complies with all the applicable laws of the country in which the research is conducted.
  • Maintain, store and dispose of any records, including electronic files and communications, created during my service engagements in a manner that promotes confidentiality, security and privacy and complies with any applicable laws and agreements.
  • 12) Use contact information (email addresses, telephone numbers, and so on) only in the manner and to the extent authorized.

Conflicts of Interest

As a healing practitioner, I:

  • Seek to be conscious of any conflict or potential conflict of interest, openly disclose any such conflict and offer to remove myself when a conflict arises.
  • Clarify roles for internal healing practitioner, set boundaries and review with stakeholders conflicts of interest that may emerge between services provided and other role functions.
  • Disclose to my client and the sponsor(s) all anticipated compensation from third parties that I may receive for referrals of clients or pay to receive clients.
  • Honor an equitable healing practitioner/client relationship, regardless of the form of compensation.

Professional Conduct with Clients

As a healing practitioner, I:

  • Ethically speak what I know to be true to clients, prospective clients or sponsors about the potential value of the healing process or of me as a healing practitioner.
  • Carefully explain and strive to ensure that, prior to or at the initial meeting, my client and sponsor(s) understand the nature of the service provided, the nature and limits of confidentiality, financial arrangements, and any other terms of the service agreement.
  • Have a clear service agreement with my clients and sponsor(s) before beginning the professional support relationship and honor this agreement. The agreement shall include the roles, responsibilities and rights of all parties involved.
  • Hold responsibility for being aware of and setting clear, appropriate and culturally sensitive boundaries that govern interactions, physical or otherwise, I may have with my clients or sponsor(s).
  • Avoid any sexual or romantic relationship with current clients or sponsor(s) or students, mentees or supervisees. Further, I will be alert to the possibility of any potential sexual intimacy among the parties including my support staff and/or assistants and will take the appropriate action to address the issue or cancel the engagement in order to provide a safe environment overall.
  • Respect the client’s right to terminate our professional relationship at any point during the process, subject to the provisions of the agreement. I shall remain alert to indications that there is a shift in the value received from the professional relationship.
  • Encourage the client or sponsor to make a change if I believe the client or sponsor would be better served by another healing practitioner or by another resource and suggest my client seek the services of other professionals when deemed necessary or appropriate.

Continuing Development

As a healing practitioner, I:

  • Commit to the need for continued and ongoing development of my professional skills.
