Supervisor Lin Cheung
For me supervision is about learning and support. For us to be fully supported in our work as a professional I think we need to feel safe to take risks in supervision and to be vulnerable about our difficulties. Trust, learning, thinking together, development, challenge, creative engagement, warmth. These are some of the words I think about in describing the supervisory relationship.
For new practitioners I often think that what is most helpful is to focus on helping you feel confident and safe in your practice and your first experiences with clients. Offering lots of suggestions about specific interventions, ways to think about the client and specific ideas about how to work that you can apply in sessions.
For the more experienced practitioner my approach is relational and creative. I’ll be encouraging you as my supervisee to be exploring relational aspects of the work along with inviting experimentation and exploration of new approaches and ideas. I also think it is important that we have clarity of aims, objectives, goals and outcomes so that we both know what is being worked on and achieved. I think this is particularly important for supervisees who are working towards examinations.
I make an initial assessment which lasts an hour for which I charge. Once we begin working together supervision is on a three weekly basis.
I am an endorsed supervisor and UKCP registered psychotherapist. I am a co director of TA Training Organisation in Leeds which is a Registered Training Establishment offering training in transactional analysis psychotherapy to equivalent of Masters level. I have a private therapy practice in Wilmslow.
