Effective talking therapies are, most of the time, more about listening. A good ear and a sizeable chunk of empathy is usually all that’s needed.
The problems start with other, less predictable, elements. Animal assisted counselling? Drama therapy? Hypnotherapy? A lot can go wrong.
And if something does go wrong, your professional expertise is under scrutiny. Before you know it, the talk turns to malpractice, legal action and compensation.
For the sake of your reputation, you’ll need to deal with even spurious claims. That usually means seeking, and paying for, legal help. If the worst happens you could be liable for damages too.
Counsellors’ insurance can help. Regardless of whether you’ve actually made a mistake or not, it pays for a solicitor to defend you. If it turns out there is a case to answer, it pays for any compensation you owe your client too.
