Psychotherapy is a branch of alternative medicine under the general umbrella of therapy. They differ from other methods of treating mental conditions by approaching them in a psychological way rather than a medical standpoint.
These psychological ways may be educational, or behavioural, using different mediums like music or art to help the client alleviate their issues.
It is important to note that the term “psychotherapist” is an unregulated term / title in Canada. Meaning there are no requirements for becoming a psychotherapist, anyone can call themselves a psychotherapist. This adds a certain element of risk as anyone can claim to be psychotherapist, someone with no qualifications or experience could be practicing psychotherapy.
Insurance is a great way to insulate yourself and your business from risks. We recommend professionalliability insurance and general liability insurance for this field. Professional liability insurance will cover occupational negligent errors and claims that are more abstract. So if a client wanted to sue after not seeing any improvement, professional liability would cover it. General liability insurance covers physical damages. For example, a client tripped on a cable in the office, it would be covered. Insurance is a must have for any business owner, acting as a safety net should the unforeseen happen.
