Abstract

The author reviews the literature on supervision and the use of autoethnography as a research method. On this basis she then explores her own ideas for improving cultural reflexivity within models of supervision, with a particular focus on transactional analysis. She suggests that supervisory practice could be enhanced by being aware of the elliptical spaces between personal identity and the professional role, between supervisor and supervisee, and between both individuals and their cultural worlds. Transactional analysis, with its focus on cocreated interactions, offers an opportunity for mutual reflexivity and the application of this elliptical approach.
