What does Life Coaching Insurance cover?

Your role as a life coach is to encourage people to make the most of their lives. However, helping someone to achieve what they want in life does carry some risks and these could quite easily turn into a claim against you. Therefore, having Life Coaching Insurance is important. 

Our policy will help protect you against claims of negligence arising from not only what you do but also the advice you give, plus other benefits. It does this by offering Professional Indemnity, which is included in your cover as standard.

Other benefits include Public Liability and optional equipment cover. The former will help protect you from a claim should someone you are offering advice to, or a member of the public get injured whilst you are carrying out your profession. 

Our tailored insurance packages come with various features and benefits, so you can have the peace of mind that you are covered and simply focus on your coaching. To get a quote you need to complete the short quote form on this page.

What's included in your Life Coaching Insurance?

Our policy provides the following benefits, some of which are optional: 

Public Liability

You can choose £1 million, £2 million or £5 million worth of Public Liability to cover your legal expenses or compensation claims if a client suffers an injury or property damage due to your actions.

Professional Indemnity

Professional Indemnity includes protection against claims arising from not only what you do but also the advice you give. This protection means legal costs are covered if someone decided to sue you due to your negligence.

Equipment Cover

In the event that you break or lose your trading equipment, up to £3,000 of cover can be incorporated into your policy to subsidise the cost of replacing the unusable items. Simply select the level of protection and it will be added to your policy.

Employers' Liability

If you employ any member of staff, Employers’ Liability is a legal requirement. With this in place you are covered if any employee suffered physical injury or death as a result of the employer’s negligence. If that staff member sought compensation, the insurer would handle the cost of the claim.
