Talk isn't cheap

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.

What’s covered:

Life coaching
Speech and language therapy
Psychology
Family mediation
Music therapy
Animal assisted therapy
... and more

Why should I buy my insurance from you?

Glad you asked.

The simple answer is: we know what we’re doing. Small business insurance is all we do so we know what you need, even if you don’t.

We also know that buying insurance can be, well, a bit of a pain. So we make sure getting yours is quick and hassle-free.

We do all that while treating you like a human being, too. You won’t find a call centre here. Or a phone menu. And we’ve banned nonsense insurance jargon.

Anything else? Well, there’s the great stuff you get, such as 20% off everything at MOO. We have an ‘I’m insured!’ badge for your website too – perfect for the professional professional.

Also, we’ll give you money each time you recommend us.

If you’re after a second opinion, have a look at our customers’ feedback. They’re the ones you should really listen to.

What our customers say...
The site was very easy to use. Also I phoned an advisor for further guidance and they were very helpful. Had my policy arranged within 30 minutes. No hassle :)
