Helping Young People, One Conversation At A Time
As a student counsellor, helping young people isn’t just a job to you – it’s your calling. There’s nothing quite like helping your clients get through hard times, and giving them the tools they need to overcome the obstacles they face. Every breakthrough reminds you that you’re doing something truly special. However, clients may not always appreciate your help, and at times they could think your advice has actually made their situation worse. If this happens, perhaps they will even decide to make a claim against you, leaving you worrying over how you’ll cope with the substantial financial repercussions — not to mention the damage to your reputation.
Here at Salon Gold, we give student counsellors the insurance they need to protect their business from claims like these. Not only does this act as a financial safety net, but clients will also feel more confident using your services if you have a comprehensive insurance policy. Invest in your future by joining the Salon Gold community today.

What Do You Get With Our Student Counsellor Insurance?
Rather than offering a generic insurance package, we believe your policy should be as unique as your business. That’s why we provide dedicated student counsellor insurance, where all the coverage included is specifically tailored to your vocation.
You will automatically receive covers we have identified as priorities for student counsellors. One of these is public liability, which insures you against claims related to third party injuries or property damage resulting from your business activities. For example, accidentally spilling boiling coffee over a client and causing a serious burn, or destroying the expensive phone in their pocket. However, public liability doesn’t pay out for claims associated with your professional services, which is why we give you malpractice insurance as standard. This protects you if someone makes a claim regarding advice you provided.
The insurance you receive as standard depends on whether you work from your own premises, or operate on a mobile or freelance basis. On top of these covers, you may wish to bolster your student counsellor insurance with some optional add-ons. Again, these are determined by the nature of your business. For example, if you have a premises you may decide to take out a complete salon/clinic insurance package to cover your stock and contents but this isn’t necessary if you work as a mobile or freelance student counsellor.
Whatever you need, Salon Gold has you covered.

What insurance do student counsellors need?
Working as a student counsellor means putting all your efforts into helping young people, but it’s also important to help yourself. Having insurance can protect you from compensation claims and legal expenses, as well as other risks such as damage to your business property, and loss of income due to an unexpected injury or illness. The most important insurance student counsellors need is public liability and malpractice cover, which you receive as standard in your policy. However, you may also need additional covers such as employer’s liability or personal accident depending on your particular business set-up.
How much does student counsellor insurance cost?
Your student counsellor insurance policy is priced according to your individual circumstances and the cost of any optional covers you add. Typically, this starts at less than £53 per year, including public liability and malpractice insurance as standard. However, the best way to find out how much you’ll pay is to get a free quote. You can do this directly through the Salon Gold website, or call up and speak to a member of our team.
Why is Salon Gold’s student counsellor insurance so comprehensive?
Many business owners will pick and choose the cover they think they need. However, we prefer to employ an all-in-one approach to ensure you are comprehensively prepared for all possibilities — after all, a policy that may not sound very important could turn out to be the one you wished you had in hindsight. That’s why our student counsellor insurance automatically includes the most vital protection, with the added freedom to incorporate optional covers to your policy if you’d like to.
