Pauline Latchem Registered Member MBACP
I am Deaf & bi-lingual in English and British Sign Language (BSL).
I am sensitive to the access needs of deaf people with a range of communication styles including lipreading, Sign Supported English, British Sign Language, Visual-Frame and Hands on signing.
An experienced Humanistic counsellor, I am committed to BACP's Code of Ethics. I am in regular supervision and undertake ongoing professional development.
I am also a general member of COSRT and abide by their Code of Ethics and Practice.
Counselling offers a space to explore personal issues in privacy, confidence and safety. My approach is Humanistic, person-centred and integrative, responding to your particular need. I offer unconditional support, time and space in which you can reflect and make sense of issues that are affecting your life, and explore options for change if this is your wish.
Please contact me if you would like to know more about counselling and what it involves. I am happy to discuss this with you in confidence and without obligation.
If you feel counselling might be for you, I can offer weekly sessions at an agreed time and day.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
