WHAT IS TRANSACTIONAL ANALYSIS PSYCHOTHERAPY?
Transactional Analysis is based upon on 3 philosophical assumptions:
As you can see from this, I work from the premise that we are our own best resource.
Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy helps us to look at messages we received as a child. These may have helped us positively in our lives, but may also have limited us. We may constantly be repeating unhelpful patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving out of awareness in order to get our needs met. These messages can have an impact on our personality, the current situation in which we find ourselves and our relationships with others.

As a counsellor/therapist I will work with you to help you achieve these goals.
In TA psychotherapy the first step is to develop an awareness of the unhelpful patterns.The second step is to recognise when these patterns are happening in the moment. The final step is to change the pattern and use different strategies which have more positive results.
Once you have contacted me either by phone, text or e-mail, I will arrange a suitable time for the first session of counselling/psychotherapy.
HOURS OF WORK
I currently work one or two days per week
You may feel nervous at the first session, but I will work at your pace and will listen carefully to what you wish to discuss.

A session lasts one hour
