The GPBA was founded with the purpose of setting high standards of ethical behavior and professional training and conduct. Thus, the GPBA takes all matters of alleged misconduct seriously. The GPBA reminds all Breathwork practitioners of our vital responsibilities towards those we serve in this healing practice.
When allegations of ethical misconduct concerning any certified practitioner or school of the GPBA are brought to the Global Professional Breathwork Alliance and its Ethics Committee, there will be a Board review which will determine the practitioner or school’s membership status in the GPBA moving forward.
Procedure for Registering Concerns of Ethical Violations to the Global Professional Breathwork Alliance
You may register a concern about an ethical violation against a practitioner or training program with the form attached on this page below. The procedure for handling your inquiry is as follows:
Once a signed inquiry form has been received by the GPBA, you will be notified of its receipt and, if any further information regarding the complaint is needed for clarity or substantiation, you will be asked to supply this.
The completed form will be reviewed by the Ethics Committee of the GPBA and the party about which the complaint has been registered will be notified that a concern has been registered about them and by whom (unless there is warranted justification for temporarily withholding the name of the complainant).
Recommendations for further action will be made to all parties by the GPBA Ethics Committee.
Please note: If the Practitioner or School involved is not a Certified Professional GPBA member, or Ethically Compliant Facilitator or Program, the GPBA does not have the jurisdiction to regulate. However, we will provide guidance, support and expertise about how this situation could be addressed, personally and by the Breathwork community.
