Transactional analysis training

TA (Transactional Analysis), developed in the 1950’s by the late Dr.Eric Berne, is an ever evolving useful and fascinating framework for understanding personality development, human behaviour, communication and relationships. TA often provides answers to why communication and relationships fail and how we repeat patterns of behaviour that are limiting or damaging.

TA was initially developed as an approach to psychotherapy. But over the past 50 years of its growth it’s found wider application in all fields concerning human growth and change, namely counselling, education, organisations and coaching. It’s universal value that ‘people are OK’, its emphasis on people’s power to choose and the immense hope it places on the possibility of change, makes it relevant to all cultures.

The genius of TA is its simplicity. It can be easily taught and learnt. As Eric Berne would say, “If it cannot be explained to an eight year old, it is not worth saying!”

The program consists of theory, demonstration, supervision, and experiential work. Individuals work with one another and receive direct supervision for their work.

Between The Lines – Sixth Sense for People Leaders This exceptional program is for leaders who want to be mindful of how the unconscious shapes individuals and groups. The vision of these leaders is to create a truly inclusive environment where the worth, value and dignity of every human being is important. They are interested in learning about their own motivations and drives, and owning their contribution to the cultures they create. They are interested in developing flexibility to respond effectively in a range of contexts – to say hold a boundary firmly in one situation and laugh till they cry in another.
