Every Holistic Pulsing Guild member, in gaining membership, agrees to the following Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.

Code of Ethics 2021

HP-Standards-Practice 2021-W




The Holistic Pulsing Guild has a Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice for the professional conduct required of its members. Copies of these may be obtained from the Guild, its members or on the web site (www.holisticpulsing.org.nz).

If you believe the Code of Ethics and/or the Standards of Practice have been breached, then a complaint may be made to the Holistic Pulsing Guild. A breach may be an incident or a general feeling that the practitioner has acted inappropriately. “Inappropriate” means
anything that is not relevant or necessary to the treatment or service. Complaints made must be relevant to the Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice only (not of a personal nature).

Please click on the document below "HP Complaints Document 2021" to read the full process.

HP Complaints Document 2021-W


What to do

In the first instance you are encouraged to contact the practitioner involved in an attempt to resolve the issue, or at least to notify them of the complaint.

Write down details of the incident with dates, times and names of the relevant people. A complaints form can be found on the Guild website, or from the Guild Secretary if required.

Send a letter (marked confidential) to the Guild Secretary, detailing the incident and what resolution you would like to see.

Address: Holistic Pulsing Guild, 78 Stagecoach Road, RD1, Upper Moutere 7173.
Or email us on complaints@holisticpulsing.org.nz.

Keep a record of the letter for yourself (the Complainant).


What happens next

The Guild Secretary will acknowledge receipt of your complaint in writing, give a projected time frame for the complaints process and inform the Complaints Team that a complaint has been received.

The complaints process will begin.

The Holistic Pulsing Guild supports full members with current registration through the complaints process. Where the practitioner is not registered, they will be notified of the complaint and encouraged to set up their own supports. The complainant will be notified.

If you are not satisfied with the result of the process, you have every right to take your complaint to the Health and Disability Commissioner (www.hdc.org.nz or 0800 11 22 33)

When a Complaint is Received

The Holistic Pulsing Guild assigns an experienced member to be the complaints person each year. That person, on receipt of a complaint, may assign another member that he/she
can work with that he/she feels has the expertise relevant to the particular complaint. He/she may also seek supervision (at the Guild’s expense) for support.

The Complaints Team and the Holistic Pulsing Guild Core Group must act fairly and impartially. If any member of the Complaints Team or Core Group feels compromised, they must withdraw from the process. Confidentiality must be maintained at all times.
