Professional Liability Insurance

The professional responsibilities of a practicing Coaching Psychologist include ensuring that they have appropriate third party liability insurance cover for the work in which they are engaged.  This may be cover provided through their employer, or insurance cover which they have themselves taken out, or both.  The International Society for Coaching Psychology expects that its Members, and recommends that other practicing Coaching Psychologists, ensure that they have such insurance cover. Professional Liability insurance can be obtained from:

Howden Professionals                                         

Howden Professionals are a specialist division of Howden Insurance Brokers Ltd. They specialise in providing professional liability insurance and their team have spent many years dealing with Professional Associations and their members in the fields of psychology, psychological therapies, complementary therapies and human resources.

For members of ISCP who practice as Coaching Psychologists and satisfy the following criteria, cover is available at the premiums shown in the table.

  • You are an Individual (or a sole trader Limited Company with a turnover of less than £100,000)
  • You have not had previous insurance declined nor has an insurer refused to renew or terminated any liability insurance.
  • There have been no liability claims made against you.
  • You are not aware of any circumstances which may give rise to a claim against you.
  • You are practising from a UK base (cover also available if based in ROI - please call for premiums)
