Hi Alex, I answered the initial complaint myself and therefore made my insurance null and void. I accounted for myself at the hearing in December and the final outcome found some of the ethical complaints to be upheld (I admitted to them) and some not, those I disputed. I received no sanctions from my governing body the UKCP. It wasn't really a claim, it was an ethics hearing and no it was not even represented by the Insurers.
OK - so who has written to you?
The claim was settled by you privately?
Well I went to the hearing on my own and as I said it wasn't a claim, it was just a hearing and the outcome was a decision on my fitness to practice. A solicitor has written to me, Victoria Thackstone from hlw Keeble hawson. She is representing the person who brought the ethical complaint against me, she is vindictive. She is now saying that she is suffering from loss of earnings and psychological damage as a result of clinical negligence. My problem is the Insurers cancelling my policy when I needed it the most. I guess the underwriter say this claim coming.
It was a professional hearing organised by the UKCP
As I've said 33 times now, it wasn't a claim, it was an ethical hearing, it is now a claim
sorry, 3 times
In short you had a hearing with the regulator, it turns out you were not insured and that insurance is being cancelled?
The reason is the claim?
In short, I had a hearing with the UK council for psychotherapy, I was insured but because I answered the complaint myself, insurance was voided. They wouldn't renew my insurance and now I have a claim against me.
I don't know, they said it was the broker who wouldn't renew
not the broker, the underwriter
