Honouring agreements with a handshake establishes trust, promotes open communication, and fosters transparency in business dealings, which can be more valuable than the short-term gains of a money-oriented approach.
What is a handshake deal? Are these too 'yesterday'?

Everyone has differing levels of internal conscience and values, is this an article which is subconsciously asking for regulation in unregulated industries? Do we need the intervention of the law? Is selecting a therapy similar to that of "traditionally" selecting a tradesman? Whilst I am content that I am professional and do my CPD and have a great supervisor I would urge all members of the public to seek therapists that hold professional accreditation, insurance and that come with recommends. For everyone else, I urge you to reflect on your own business and ask:
"Am I doing things right? Would I happily buy goods/services from me?"
