Tailored Insurance For Cognitive Behavioural Therapists

Our specialist Cognitive Behavioural Therapists Insurance provides comprehensive business cover which can be tailored to meet your individual needs. Our policy comes with Public Liability to protect you if you accidently injure a client or damage their property.

It also includes Professional Indemnity which means that you’ll be covered for the treatments and advice you give. Arranging adequate insurance is crucially important, as any claims against you could have financial implications. 

You can also upgrade your policy to include Equipment cover up to £3,000. Should you wish to insure your business equipment against potential damage, theft or loss, you can upgrade your policy to include this cover.  

Whilst the risks associated with Cognitive Behaviour Therapy may be relatively low, having specialist insurance in place will provide you with that peace of mind if anything were to go wrong. Get an instant quote and buy online in minutes.
