CODE OF ETHICAL PRACTICE
To have as first priority the well being of the client, to endeavour to enhance the client's self understanding, and to inspire hope and courage.
To use the Tarot for the empowerment of others, i.e., to work in ways which promote the client's control over his/her own life, and to respect the client's ability to make decisions in the light of his/her own beliefs and values.
To refrain from imposing personal judgements and prejudices during consultations
If appropriate, I will suggest that clients consult a qualified professional. (e.g. health or legal professional.)
Readings will not knowingly be given to clients aged under 18 years
To serve the best interests of my clients, conducting my professional activities without causing or intending to cause harm.
To treat all my clients with equal respect, regardless of their origin, race, religion, gender, age, or sexual preference.
To keep confidential the names of clients and all information shared or discussed during readings, unless otherwise requested by the client or required by a court of law.
To respect my clients’ right to refuse or terminate their reading at any time, regardless of prior consent.
To interpret the reading to be best of my ability, and admit freely when I am unable to do so. I will tell the truth of what I see, and will respect the wishes of a client who does not want to hear everything I have to say.
To remain open to the acquisition of new skill.
To take all reasonable steps to monitor and develop my own competence and to work within the limits of that competence. This includes having appropriate and ongoing supervision and/or consultative support for my work.
To pursue my own personal development.
To maintain my own effectiveness, resilience, and ability to help clients.
To monitor my own personal functioning and to seek help and/or withdraw from the practice of the Tarot, either temporarily or permanently, when my personal resources are sufficiently depleted to require this.
To uphold the integrity of the Tarot as an enduring source of wise counsel, spiritual guidance, and as a pathway to self knowledge.
