When faced with an ethical dilemma, members should consider their options for resolution in the light of these principles.

It is our intention, in time, to provide more detailed guidance in relation to the specific issues that we consider are raised by integrative coach-therapy practice.

Client autonomy should be promoted in integrative coach-therapy practice, but any vulnerability needs to be taken into account in determining appropriate courses of action.
