Ethical Standards for Metaphysical Practitioners

Code of Practice

Practitioners are required to treat their clients with compassion and respect, creating a safe environment that encourages trust and open communication.


Practitioners are required to make available training certificates and diplomas to any client who wishes to inspect them.


Practitioners are required at all times to act in a professional manner with their clients and will not misuse their position of trust.


Practitioners are required at all times to respect the confidentiality of their clients as a sacred trust. In any supervisory capacity the client's name will not be used.


Metaphysical practitioners do not claim to be psychologists or psychotherapists. They work with spiritual principles that do sometimes include psychological techniques, which are an aspect of metaphysical teachings. Metaphysical practitioners encourage clients to utilise these principles so they may be led to a place of self-empowerment.


The practitioner will not claim to personally cure or heal anyone. Any beneficial effect that takes place is entirely due to the self-healing power within the individual.


Practitioners will not interfere with any medical treatment the client is undergoing and will work alongside any orthodox form of treatment the client is already receiving. Practitioners will never advise anyone to discontinue prescribed medication. Clients must always consult their medical doctor for advice in this matter.


Practitioners will only take cases that they feel are within their capacity to treat and which they genuinely believe can benefit from metaphysical practice.


Practitioners are required to make available insurance certificates to any client who wishes to inspect them.


To practice as a metaphysical practitioner, membership of the Metaphysical Society, the British Register of Complementary Practitioners (BRCP) and up to date insurance cover must accompany the MSEC Practitioner Diploma.
