Caroline Plumer MBACP (Accred), MA
Hi, I'm Caroline - an experienced integrative therapist working with individuals, couples and organisations. My style is supportive yet challenging, allowing you to explore and grow at your own pace. I look forward to meeting you.
How I can help
I offer supportive, impactful solutions to help you meet your personal and professional goals. Depending on what best suits your needs we may work together long-term or decide on a short course of sessions, exploring both practical solutions such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and the deeper reasons behind your current thoughts and feelings.
Who is therapy for?
Whilst there is still an unnecessary stigma attached to therapy, there is nothing wiser or braver than investing in your mental health, just as you would your physical health. Whether you’re an individual with something on your mind, a couple looking to improve your relationship or simply burnt out with the pressure of modern living, therapy is a useful tool for meeting your goals as well as gaining perspective and clarity of mind.
Issues I work with include but are not limited to:
- Identity Issues
- Self-esteem issues
- Suicidal thoughts
- Issues with sex & sexuality
- Relationship issues
What to expect in your first session
The first session is a chance for us to get to know one another a little, explore what is happening for you and talk about how we might be able to work together to support you. My aim is always to ensure you get the best solution available, so if we decide we need to point you in another direction that is certainly something I can assist you with. If we choose to move forward together, we will discuss what this might look like as well as logistics such as frequency and timings.
Training, qualifications & experience
Before undertaking therapy training, I worked in a number of corporate roles in Central London and Hertfordshire, and so I work with a first-hand understanding of the stresses and strains of modern working life. As well as one to one and couples therapy, I also offer workshops for businesses to help employees cope with work-related stress and anxiety.
I hold the following qualifications and memberships:
- Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
- MA & PGDip in Psychotherapy and Counselling from Regent's University
- MSc in Criminology and Criminal Justice
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
