Supervision gives the practitioner just that - a superVision of his or her practice. TA practitioners develop increased self awareness and confidence through the process of analysing their practice with a supervisor.
What is superVision?
Whether you are a coach or a trainer, taking your work to supervision is a self-supporting practice. It is also an ethical requirement - if you are using the modality of TA, which is a psychological approach to human relationships - you are required to gain a super-vision of your work.
TA supervision (TA in action!) has a great richness because we apply the tools of TA to analyse what is going on in the relationship, or within the supervisee as well as what is happening in the supervision session itself.
How does it work?
The practitioner brings to supervision elements of his or her work. It may be something that happened between you and a client where you felt you were not connecting well, or you felt awkward or even upset. TA supervision gives you an insight into what was going on in the process.

Or as a trainer, maybe you had a challenging participant on a workshop and you want to understand what your options were to manage that situation. Understanding what happened, using the tools of TA, can help you make choices so that next time, you achieve a more positive outcome.
Lynda runs small supervision groups, based in Torquay, Devon.
The agenda is drawn up in collaboration with the group, at the beginning of the day. The day starts at 9.30 am and finishes at 4.30 pm. Lynda usually runs a process review at the end of each supervision if there is time. A process review gives opportunities for more learning, as the TA tools are used to analyse the process between supervisor and supervisee. They can be very rich in their depth and offer further insights for all in the group, as well as those involved in the supervision.
The next group starts as soon as there are 8 participants on the waiting list.
