Dr Valerie Thomas
I am a highly experienced counselling and psychotherapy supervisor. I am an integrative psychotherapist and I have supervised therapists from a variety of a theoretical orientations. Alongside my own private practice, I have provided individual and group supervision in a range of statutory and voluntary organisational settings including specialised addiction services, bereavement, cancer and domestic violence support agencies. In addition, during a decade of working as a counselling educator, I have been responsible for managing and delivering supervision to students on professional counselling training programmes in FE colleges and Anglia Ruskin University. Please contact me if you would like any further information and/or to discuss your particular supervisory needs.
I have developed a specialism in the use of mental imagery in therapeutic practice - I have written about this work in my recent book, Using Mental Imagery in Counselling and Psychotherapy: A Guide to More Inclusive Theory and Practice (Routledge, 2016). I draw on some of these creative mental imagery practices in my supervisory practice. Please contact me if you would like further details.
