Code of Ethics

All Counsellors at Calm Academy follow the National Counselling Society’s Code of Ethics 

Scope of this code

The scope of this Code is to give ethical guidance on the counsellor-client relationship.

If you are a member of the public wishing to make a complaint regarding one of our members, a Society officer can speak with you and offer assistance in understanding this code and our complaints procedures.

The Society has a duty to ensure that any client of a Society member making a complaint is treated fairly and that all procedures are properly explained.  When a complaint against a member is upheld the Society will publish the details along with any sanctions (such as suspension, removal from the register) on the Society website and this will also be recorded on the Register.
