Tailored professional liability insurance for psychologists
As a professional psychologist, you take on significant responsibility for your clients – you’re in a position of trust so your livelihood depends on your skills, experience, and your reputation for patience, discretion, and outstanding care. It’s important that you have the peace of mind to carry out your work with confidence knowing that you have the protection you need in place.
Oxygen professional liability insurance is specifically designed to cover your work as a psychologist. Underwritten by Hiscox, cover can be extended to include, where appropriate, work as an educator, trainer or supervisor of psychologists, medico legal, and expert witness work.
We recognise that every psychology practice is unique, so the Oxygen team will take the time to understand the work you do and the risks you face – before tailoring psychologist insurance to meet your needs.
We hope you never have to make a claim under your Oxygen indemnity insurance for psychologists, but if you do, we have a dedicated claims team on hand to help support you throughout the process.
