When using a Directory, whether it is online, or in the form of a Telephone Directory or Local Business Directory, it is essential to understand the difference between a Directory and a Referral Service.
A Directory is simply a list of professionals or businesses, and no recommendations or guarantees are made regarding the quality of service you might expect from any of the professionals or businesses listed. The Telephone Yellow Pages is a common and well known example of a Directory. Every business is listed for free, and some businesses pay an advertising fee for a larger listing or display ad. Whether the listing is free or paid, no recommendations are expressed or implied, regarding the quality of services provided.
A Referral Service is a screening service, and a recommendation is being made, with at least some endorsement of the professionals or businesses listed in the service. Usually, a Referral Service will require a professional or a business to meet some quality criteria before they are accepted into the Referral Service. This might include a specific number of years of experience, passing a special test or training program not required by everyone in the profession or business, or an absence of consumer complaints about the professional or business.
Wellness Coach Connect is a directory, not a referral service. We do not verify the credentials, license or experience of anyone listed, and we know nothing of their professional background, other than what they have included in their listing Therefore, we request that you please use the directories as you would a telephone directory, to locate a coach in your community.
