Insurance for Spiritual Directors

Protect your peace of mind with spiritual director insurance

Your work as a spiritual director, listening and questioning to help your clients explore their faith, guiding them through a process of reflection and spiritual growth, can be extremely rewarding. However building fruitful relationships with your clients demands their absolute trust in your expertise and professionalism, so it is important you are able to defend your reputation, as well as your finances, if something were to go wrong.

However unlikely it might seem, conflict with clients – whether related to the services you provide or an accident on your premises – can result in legal action being taken against you, which could  put your reputation and livelihood at risk. Specialist insurance for spiritual healers can play a crucial role in defending you against these kinds of unforeseen issues, stepping in to help with everything from legal fees and compensation, to crisis containment and more.

  • Protection
    We will help you find professional liability insurance that’s designed to meet your individual needs, covering your work in spiritual direction (non-directive), including where appropriate work as an educator, trainer or supervisor. Underwritten by Hiscox, our cover can be extended to include other work such as counselling or pastoral care work.
  • Care 
    We recognise that spiritual direction is a varied profession that demands a tailored approach to insurance – you need cover that is  tailored specifically for you. That’s why the Oxygen team take the time to understand the work you do and the risks you face - then use that insight to build the tailored spiritual direction insurance you need. It’s a proven approach - we regularly receive excellent client feedback and word of mouth recommendations from happy customers.
  • Claims
