Why you can trust us and our providers

One of our founders is a therapist and both are avid users of health and wellness services. We understand better than most how important it is to know you’re booking someone you can trust.

Verified members

Unlike other platforms that rely only on self-certification, you can rest assured that any provider with our verified mark is properly trained, fully registered and appropriately insured. 

Certain providers will be registered with a professional body (for example, the Health Care Professions Council). Being registered with a professional body shows that the member meets that organisations training criteria (including on-going training to make sure they have kept up to date with advances in care) and that they will abide by their code of conduct. Before any provider is given our verified check mark, we manually review they have current:

  1. Professional indemnity insurance
  2. Public liability insurance
  3. Registration with their professional body
  4. Relevant qualifications

Providers are only shown as verified to the date which either their professional membership or insurance runs out. On this date, the verified mark is removed from the providers' profile until they provide us with new copies. This is manually reviewed each year to ensure they remain registered and insured. This is a lot of work, but we think it’s worth it to give you peace of mind.

Non-verified members

All providers that sign up with us have to confirm that they have appropriate training and insurance to practice before we list them. However, just because a provider isn’t verified doesn’t mean that they’re not insured or registered. There are many reasons why a provider may not be verified with us. This could be they’re currently in the process of verification or maybe they’ve just registered with us to help their google rating. If you’re concerned or want to check their registration yourself, we’ve given you all the links you should need below to check them out.

Can we improve?

We’re always looking to improve. If there’s anything we’re missing (links to professional bodies) or further checks you think would be helpful for us to complete on our providers, contact us here.

Questions or concerns for or about a provider?

All the information given on a providers profile is created and managed by that provider. If you have any questions for them, need any clarification or just want to have a chat with them about your personal needs before booking, you can message them directly through SimplyBreeze on their profile.

We want our platform to be the most trusted and used platform in the world, for finding, booking and providing health and wellness services. So, if you ever have any concerns, questions or issues about a provider, user or experience you have had, please contact us directly here so we can talk it through with you. If you’re also making a complaint directly to a providers professional body (contact details listed below), please also let us know. We will handle all complaints fairly, effectively and transparently.
