1. De Haagse Herborist as a practicionner

Practitioners have a duty to treat clients in line with current evidence and research in order to best serve the client and the profession as a whole:

  • We ensure that we have obtained the necessary insurance and agreed to your own countries’ laws regarding alternative and health care.

  • We act in the best interests of our clients and treat them with respect. We do not mislead our clients or make any false claims of our skills and abilities.


In caring for clients we:

  • Respect the client as an individual and honor their integrity as well as respecting their customs, creed, ability, sexuality, economic status, lifestyle, political beliefs and religion.

  • Obtain written consent before you give any treatment or care and work according to holistic principles.

  • Protect confidential information.

  • Recognize the value of other therapies and health care professionals, both within complementary and conventional medicine and work with other practitioners and refer when it is in the client’s best interests.


As a practitioner, we do not treat a client in any case which exceeds our capacity, training, and competence. To practice competently, a practitioner must possess the knowledge, skills and abilities required for lawful, safe and effective practice without direct supervision. We must acknowledge the limits of our professional competence and only undertake practice and accept responsibilities for those activities in which they are fully trained and competent

  • We maintain the highest morals and behave with courtesy, respect, dignity, discretion, and tact.

  • We act to identify and minimize risk to clients.

  • We only act with express consent of the client

  • We take responsibility for our actions and respect other practitioners and health professionals. We practice only within the limits of their competence. We make sure their behavior does not damage the profession’s reputation. We observe confidentiality, practice within the law.

  • We maintain high standards of hygiene and we take care of our own personal energy balance and well-being by having regular energy balances.

  • We maintain and develop our knowledge and skills.



2. De Haagse Herborist as a teacher

Teachers help students learn, but they also teach valuable life lessons by setting a positive example. As role models, teachers must follow a professional code of ethics. This ensures that students receive a fair, honest and uncompromising education. A professional code of ethics outlines teachers' main responsibilities to their students and defines their role in students' lives.

· Above all, teachers must demonstrate integrity, impartiality and ethical behavior in the (virtual) classroom. Students Matter. Most Teachers must model strong character traits, such as perseverance, honesty, respect, lawfulness, patience, fairness, responsibility, and unity. As a teacher, we treat every student with kindness, equality and respect, without showing favoritism, prejudice or partiality. You must maintain confidentiality and never use relationships with students for personal gain. Teachers must commit to the teaching profession.


Our classroom should promote safety, security and acceptance, always avoiding any form of bullying, hostility, dishonesty, neglect or offensive conduct.


As a teacher we shall only teach that which has proven effective and not conduct or encourage students to conduct any research or go beyond what they learned. The teacher does not dispense medical advice or prescribe the use of any technique as a form of treatment for physical or medical problems without the advice of a physician, either directly or indirectly.


The intent of the teacher is only to offer information of a general nature to help you and others in your/their quest for better energy balance and well-being. In the event you use any of the information in the courses offered for yourself, which is your constitutional right, the Teacher assumes no responsibility for your actions.



This Code of Conduct and Ethics is not exhaustive and may be subject to change without notice by De Haagse Herborist at any time.
