Professional indemnity insurance for art therapists

It is all too easy to think of art therapy as a relatively low risk profession, but using artistic techniques to encourage self-expression, explore feelings, and develop coping mechanisms clearly has its risks – and taking out the right art therapy professional indemnity insurance is important in protecting your livelihood. 

  • Protection
    We will help you find professional liability insurance that’s designed to meet your individual needs, covering your work in art therapy, psychotherapy or counselling – including work as an educator, trainer or supervisor. Underwritten by Hiscox, cover can be extended to include other work such as dramatherapy, music therapy, and life coaching.

  • Care 
    Art therapy is a varied profession – so managing your risks means finding art therapy insurance that’s tailored to you. The Oxygen team will work with you to understand your business and the risks you face – then build a tailored art therapy insurance policy just for you. It’s an approach that works – we often receive positive client feedback and word of mouth recommendations from satisfied customers.

  • Claims
    We hope you never have to make a claim under your Oxygen insurance for art therapists, but if you do, we have a dedicated claims team on hand to help support you throughout the process.
