Frequently asked questions
Counsellors require insurance to protect them against the risks they face whilst delivering their services. Insurance can cover the cost of defending claims of poor advice, malpractice, negligence, injury or property damage in relation to service provided to clients during their sessions. Counsellors may require certain insurances to meet the membership requirements of their professional body or other contractual agreements with businesses they work with.
