Personal relationships

I am committed to maintaining professional relationships with my current clients.

If I encounter a current client outside of our professional dynamic, I will not initiate an interaction. I will respond in kind if they greet me, and maintain the level of communication set by the client.

I will not develop any kind of personal relationship with a current client.

After I client and I end our professional relationship, I am open to friendship with them. We will communicate about the effect of our power dynamic and its possible impact.

After a period of 1 year from the end of our professional relationship, by default I will no longer maintain any unecessary supplementary conditions on how I relate to past clients. If either the past client or I desire to maintain restrictions based on our past professional relationship, we will do so.

Complaints

If for whatever reason you wish to raise a concern, you have the following options:

  • Talk to me directly about it face to face, over the phone or using whatever platform feels most comfortable. I am open to feedback, criticism and learning oportunities.
  • Send me an anonymous message here.
  • I am setting up supervision for my practice. I will list their contact information here once it is established.
