Policy Details - Psychologists insurance

This section includes full details of the cover provided. Our policy protects you against claims for compensation from clients or from any other party as a result of your psychology work. You would even be protected against a complaint or disciplinary action from a professional body, as our policy covers the costs of defending these proceedings.

You can find out more about our policy and the different options available to you below.

The policy is designed to cover any civil liability arising from your business - but there are a few specific exclusions:

  • Business risks such as contracts with suppliers or trading losses
  • Any intentional act, unless this is part of the services you provide
