Let’s Talk About It

Sometimes, when life all seems too much, we just need to talk about it. As a therapist specialising in counselling, you know the healing power that talking to a professional can have. Your business was born of a wish to help people, and what you do can dramatically improve your clients’ lives.

But sometimes, your help won’t always be perceived by your client as “helpful”. In fact, despite your best efforts, a client may allege that you actually made their condition worse and make a claim against you for malpractice. And where do you go from there? Does this mean the end of your business?

Because we understand how important your counselling is to the community it serves, we want you to stay protected. We’ve included malpractice cover in our Counsellor’s insurance policy, so that you can focus on helping your patients through their problems.


Let’s change the world, one conversation at a time. Protect your business with our insurance today.

Insurance FAQs

What insurance do Counsellors need?

As a professional counsellor, the most important insurance requirement will be to protect against any injury caused to a patient as a result of incorrect or poor advice. This insurance is known as malpractice insurance and will protect you in the event that a client sues for damage. Compensation claims can be very costly and insurance is a valuable safety net. Public liability insurance is also essential in case a visitor to your premises were to be injured, they may have tripped over your kit bag for example.
