                 For qualified and trainee counsellors and psychotherapists:     This course is a requirement for anyone wishing to embark on
                 full Transactional Analyst training and qualification. The syllabus is regulated by the European Association for Transactional Analysis
                in order to ensure consistency of training.

All participants will receive an internationally-recognised T.A. 101 Certificate. No prior training or experience is necessary, and the course is appropriate for anyone aged 16 - 116. All participants who attend the full course will receive the Certificate.

The training includes real-life examples and simple group exercises, but participants do not need to disclose any private information, i.e. it is not a therapy group.

The cost is £110 per person. For anyone who would find the full fee difficult, I offer a reduced rate of £85 per person. Also, for multiple bookings (groups of two or more people) the cost is £85 per person.

For organizations providing their own training room, the cost is £1,100 for up to 15 participants.

   Participants will learn about:

               Communication and why it sometimes breaks down

               Personality and why we sometimes 'click' (or don't) with certain other people

               Why we sometimes experience emotions that are inappropriate or overwhelming

               Causes of low self-esteem and methods for improving self-esteem

               Recognising and addressing patterns of destructive behaviour

The course is usually run over two 6-hour days, and may be delivered in-house to organisations, or at an independent location convenient to the majority of participants.

The next T.A.101 date to be confirmed.
