Valerie Gage MBACP (Reg.) Counsellor | Clinical Supervisor | Facilitator
Are you a Counselling or Psychotherapy trainee in your final year of study and currently seeing clients? Or, perhaps you are qualified and seeking private supervision?
I work from a person-centred perspective; which is facilitative, collaborative and supportive. This provides an opportunity for us to develop trust in our supervisory relationship so that you feel safe to explore your client work. You may want to explore your responses to clients' processes and experiencing as a way of identifying any familiar patterns or potentially harmful dynamics in your relationships with clients.
It is also a space to employ the use of self-inquiry as a way of exploring issues of race, difference and diversity; uncovering any 'blind spots', prejudices or unconscious bias, and their impact on you and your client work.
I offer an accepting and confidential space in which you can explore your fears and vulnerabilities about your practice whilst I support you to develop trust, competence and pride in your practice.
My experience enables me to support you within the context of your practice, whether this is in a placement as part of your course requirements (and in addition to your placement supervision), other private or organisational/settings or for your private practice.
Why not get in touch to explore your supervision needs? I welcome your enquiry!
