Are you a member yet? Membership is open to all and is the first step towards accreditation.
As a practising therapist, you must be covered by adequate insurance when you’re providing services directly or indirectly to the public. This is to ensure that you and your clients have appropriate protection.
We now ask all accredited members make a declaration that they have adequate, current, and ongoing professional indemnity insurance for their practice. You must make sure that your cover meets your needs.
Professional Indemnity insurance specifically for psychotherapy is offered by a number of companies. Balens Insurance Brokers offers special rates to BABCP members. You can find out more about their insurance here.
Please note that BABCP receive an ‘affinity’ fee from Balens Ltd of £6.00 for every member who takes out their policy and at renewal. We use this to cover costs in arranging and maintaining the discounted insurance scheme, advertising, and offering expertise to Balens if a risk management issue arises. Any surplus is added to our funds to provide services to members.
