How I Work

office

 

I am a practitioner of Transactional analysis TA

“TA is a theory of personality and systematic psychotherapy for personal growth and personal change“ (UKATA)

The guiding philosophy of TA is shown below

People are OK – I accept myself as me and I accept you as you but there are certain things that can be changed.

Everybody has the capacity to think – Therefore we are all responsible for what we want to get out of our lives. People can change and make new decisions to increase their fulfilment of life.

Contractual method – Both the client and myself take joint responsibility for achieving change. There is no magic wand there is simply the ability to change.

Open communication – There is a two way dialogue between the client and myself which facilitates change. Both the client and I are free to express ourselves.

I also incorporate many elements from Cognitive behavioural therapy and from mindfulness.
