Counselling and Psychotherapeutic Approach

Transactional Analysis (TA) is a school of psychotherapy founded by Eric Berne in the USA. TA is underpinned by a basic philosophy enshrined in the following three statements:-

  • Everyone is OK - A Humanitarian or Person Centred approach and
  • Everyone has the capacity to think and influence their life by the decisions they make – the cognitive component to TA renders it operationally similar to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) working in the here and now problem solving, and
  • Any decision can be changed – at a deeper level some decisions may have been made in the past and out of conscious memory. TA utilises the psychodynamic method to work with difficulties arising through life’s vicissitudes both large and small.
