Tailored insurance designed for Counsellors
Counsellors insurance includes both Professional Indemnity and Public Liability in one policy.
Why do Counsellors need Professional Indemnity insurance?
As a Counsellor, you play a vital role in helping people cope with a variety of issues, with the aim to help them lead happier and healthier lives. You’re dealing with people in crisis and this could lead to a patient misunderstanding your advice and a legal claim being made against you.
Counsellors Indemnity insurance is designed to protect you if something goes wrong while you’re with a client, it includes cover against a wide range of risks like claims of professional negligence.2
As a Counsellor, you need to be covered by a level of Professional Indemnity insurance that meets the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency standard.3
Why do Counsellors need Public Liability insurance?
You know there are things in life that are out of our control, like accidents. There could be a loose nail, and someone could snag themselves on it, setting into motion any number of events that could lead you to being sued. You could be held liable if someone is injured or their property is damaged on your premises or because of your business dealings.
Counsellors Liability insurance provides cover for legal liabilities if a member of the public makes a claim that they were injured, or damage was caused to their property because of your business dealings or on your premises.2
