Case study
Samantha is a natural health practitioner working in her own private practice.  Recently her neighbour and friend Margaret approached her and told her she was suffering from a terminal illness, and asked Samantha to help her with treatment.  Samantha had always liked Margaret and was very keen to help her, and so she agreed.  Samantha would regularly go to Margaret’s house after-hours and provide treatment, as well as help her with cooking and cleaning.  As the weeks progressed, Margaret’s health deteriorated and her son Jack moved in to help with Margaret’s end-of-life care.  Samantha and Jack established a good rapport, and Jack showed
an interest in Samantha’s treatment practices – soon becoming a client himself.  Quite often Samantha would join Jack for a glass of wine and dinner after treating Margaret, and they would stay up late discussing their personal lives.
