Transactional analysis is a model of personality and a theory for understanding communication and relationships. It is a really helpful tool to get to grips with who you are and how you relate to others. This TA101 course is the official introduction to transactional analysis and will explain to you, over a period of two days, what transactional analysis is about. It can be a wonderful insight and experience as a standalone course, or could lead to further TA training.

The course takes place over the 2 days, 9.30am - 4.30pm.

Come and join an early adventure in TA at The Horsforth Centre, Leeds - who knows where it might lead?

The Foundation Certificate in TA is a fascinating journey, exploring the core concepts of TA in more depth. I can be a stand-alone course or used as a basis for further study and training in TA.

The programme runs over 10 weekends - 1 per month. Each weekend is made up of a combination of theory and skills practice - giving the opportunity to learn about the theory and then look at how to apply it. 

The course is for therapists who wish to expand their skills base, for those who are looking at a career as a psychotherapist or those who would simply like to know more about TA.
