Psychological Professions

Our Professional Liability Insurance is designed specifically for those who work in the Psychological Professions and those professions related to psychology. This generally means those who specialise in working with people. The professions we insure include:

Psychological Professions:

  • Psychologists (All disciplines)
  • Counsellors
  • Counselling Charities
  • CBT & REBT Practitioners
  • Psychotherapists
  • Hypnotherapists
  • Stress Management Professionals
  • Art Therapists
  • Music Therapists
  • Play Therapists
  • Dramatherapists
  • TA Therapists
  • Professional Associations and Membership Bodies

If your profession is not listed here, just get in touch. It’s likely that we will be able to help you find the cover you need.

Cover is available for those in private practice, employees, trainees, academics or limited companies and partnerships.

The policy provides, as standard, £10 million public liability cover and there is now a choice of five levels of cover for other civil liabilities (including the professional indemnity or malpractice risk) starting at £1.5 million with a new top level of £10 million.

What does it cost?
With Oxygen, more of what you pay goes towards a better insurance product because we recognise that building a proposition with fair and reasonable pricing results in a more sustainable business.

Our policy covers any civil liability arising from your professional activities and is a seamless combination of Public & Product Liability Insurance and Professional Indemnity (or Malpractice Insurance). Please go to our resources page to download an information sheet for your profession which outlines our cover and cost options.

Why Oxygen?
We are specialists in this field; we specialize in insuring People Based Professionals (or People-People). Our team is headed by Steve Johnson who has been working with Psychologists since 1988. His experience, contacts and knowledge of the profession is truly outstanding and unrivalled in the insurance market.

Because we understand the importance of providing a personal and attentive service that delivers results, we don't operate a call centre and our phones are answered by people (we are People-People too!)

New - from August 2013

Our policy for each specialist sector has just been completely revised and updated with several important enhancements to the cover including, Therapeutic/Professional Wills cover, full Directors and Officers Liability Cover (up to £100,000) and a 24 hour commercial advice and legal helpline. The policy is now underwritten by Hiscox and is available exclusively from Oxygen. Existing customers will move onto the new policy at renewal.
