I, Elaine Yonge, uphold the following Code of Ethics in all my Professional, Client--Practitioner and Facilitator-Participant relations.

  • I will be honest with myself and others.

  • I will be empathetic and in attunement with clients/participant & team members.

  • I will practice patience, tolerance and flexibility.

  • I will remain teachable and open-minded.

  • I will treat everyone with consideration, dignity and respect, for we are all related.

  • I will intend the highest good for those I support.

  • I will create a loving, caring space for those whom I support.

  • I will seek support from others (peers, teachers, colleagues, counsellors) when appropriate for the good of myself and those I support.

  • I will not advise or provide services that are beyond my competency and training.

  • I will have only platonic (no romantic or sexual -) relations with clients during the period of having a professional relationship and for a period of 12 months after.

  • I will have only platonic (no romantic or sexual -) relations with participants during the time of a retreat/workshop and for a period of six months after - unless there is a preexisting connection, in which instance appropriate discussions would be shared and agreements/boundaries put in place if required.

  • I will practice and require Informed Consent in all client & group spaces.

  • I will share and reflect information about my trainings, retreats and skills accurately and honestly.

  • Share my feelings and experience where appropriate. 

  • Not approach conflicts with an attitude of blame, even if transference or projection are present.
