Insurance for psychotherapists

As a psychotherapist, you spend your working days helping people. But for any professional who comes into regular contact with clients, accidents and compensation claims are a possibility.

Psychotherapy insurance from Simply Business has public liability cover at its core. This can cover compensation claims made against you by a client or a member of the public for injury or property damage, for example if someone’s hurt when they slip on a wet floor as they’re entering your office. You’re covered if clients visit your premises or if you visit them at their homes.

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

What insurance do psychotherapists need?

The insurance you need always depends on the particular risks that your business faces. These are some of the covers you may want to consider:

  • Public liability insurance can cover you if a client or member of the public is injured or if their property is damaged by your psychotherapy business. Simply Business offers between £1 million and £10 million in cover, as compensation costs can be high
  • Buildings insurance can pay if your premises is damaged by something like fire, flood or vandalism. You can also choose to cover your office equipment in case it’s stolen or damaged
