Why board-certified counselors and counseling students need personal coverage

While some employers provide coverage, many don’t protect you if you are faced with defending yourself against a claim. A single claim, justified or not, can take significant time away from your practice and cost thousands of dollars in court and legal fees. A personal Professional Liability insurance policy allows you to choose the amount of coverage you need and protects you against claims arising from previous employment.

Whether you work in an agency or in private practice, are full-time or part-time, or are a counseling student, Lockton Affinity Health’s Professional Liability insurance is designed just for board-certified counselors and counseling students and will give you the financial security you need to protect yourself against a claim.
