Insurance for counsellors

Counselling insurance can protect you against compensation claims made against you by a client or a member of the public. With Simply Business you can build a tailored policy by choosing the insurance you need. Public liability insurance can cover legal and compensation costs if your counselling business is held responsible for injury to someone or damage to their property. You’re covered if clients visit your premises or if you visit them at their homes.

You can also add other covers, including legal expenses insurance, which includes access to a 24/7 legal advice helpline, and cover for your buildings and office equipment.

What insurance does my counselling business need?

The insurance you need will depend on the individual risks your business faces. Here’s a summary of some of the main types of business insurance:

  • Public liability insurance steps in if a client or member of the public is injured or if their property is damaged by your business. Simply Business offers between £1 million and £5 million in cover, as compensation costs can be extremely high
  • Business equipment insurance covers the cost of repairing or replacing your equipment if it’s damaged or stolen (whilst in the UK). For many businesses equipment insurance is essential and this cover can provide it as part of your single, tailored policy
