TRANSACTIONAL ANALYSIS

WHAT IS TA?

Transactional Analysis

I am a qualified therapist and counsellor and have a Postgraduate Diploma in Transactional Analysis Practice.

Developed in the late 1950s and 1960s by Eric Berne, who was a medical doctor and psychiatrist, Transactional Analysis (TA) is a theory of personality for personal growth and change. It provides a way of looking at how people are structured psychologically and helps us understand how we function, in other words how we express our personality in terms of our behaviour.

 

I believe the strength of TA lies in the depth of its theory and ease of accessibility, offering a framework for resolving everyday problems, life crises and psychological disorders.

It can also help us look at the way we communicate and our relationships, both at home and at work.

TA is humanistic in its philosophy, with a belief that we all have worth and value - you may have heard the philosophy expressed as 'I'm OK, You're OK'. The guiding principals of the theory believe that we are all responsible for ourselves and that we can make changes and resolve emotional problems given knowledge, resources and understanding.

I sometimes use TA concepts in my work where appropriate. Clients have found these tools easy to understand and they can help provide insight into repeated patterns of behaviour that may be affecting their lives. 

I am a registered member of;  UKATA (United Kingdom Association for Transactional Analysis) and EATA (European Association of Transaction Analysis) and work within the code of ethics and professional practice of these bodies.
