Transactional analysis psychotherapy focuses on the changes you want to make in your life.
I practice Transactional Analysis psychotherapy and counselling. There are many different types of counselling and therapy, Transactional Analysis (TA) is a humanistic psychotherapy which means that it recognises the worth and value of each individual and their striving towards health and fulfilment.
Some of the ideas in TA that I think are important are that firstly that everyone has the ability to learn and change and that individuals are ultimately responsible for their own behaviour, thoughts and feelings. This idea is incredibly powerful as it offers great potential for us to make new decisions about our lives and carry out personal change.
Another central idea in TA is the concept of contractual working. This means I work with each person to help them identify their “wants” from counselling and therapy and these are our aims and goals. Therapy and counselling is not viewed as something that is “done to” someone but as a mutual process of engagement where we are both fully involved.
