What is Transactional Analysis?

Transactional Analysis (TA) is a type of counselling and psychotherapy that can be used in any area where there is a need for understanding individuals, relationships and communication. It is founded on essentially three philosophical views about people. These are that:

1 – People are OK.

2 – Everyone has the capacity to think, feel and be active.

3 – People determine their own life-course, and that that course can be changed.

Underpinned by the philosophy that people can change and that we all have a right to be in the world and be accepted, TA’s main theory outlines how we have developed and treat ourselves – and how we relate and communicate with others.

It also offers suggestions and interventions which will enable us to change and grow.

It has wide applications in clinical, therapeutic, organisational and personal development encompassing communications, management, personality, relationships and behaviour.

All counsellors in The Cumbria Counselling Group specialise in using Transactional Analysis as a therapy to facilitate personal growth and change.
