The following portfolio seeks to view counselling psychology and people with learning disabilities from a pluralistic standpoint. The focus of the research is to understand the attitudes of support workers towards counselling psychology and this particular client group. It attempts to investigate through mixed methods the likelihood of support workers considering a referral for counselling and the factors that affect this while understanding the views and opinions of support staff. In addition, the portfolio includes a publishable paper based on this research which focuses on the role of counselling psychology in improving access to counselling for people with learning disabilities. Finally, a case study presents therapeutic work with someone who has a learning disability underpinned by a pluralistic framework.
