What is Transactional Analysis?


Founded by Eric Berne in the late 50s, Transactional Analysis (TA) is now a widely recognised psychological theory and methodology. It provides us with ways to understand personality development and relationship patterns.

TA integrates humanistic, psychoanalytic and behavioural approaches and can be applied in many professional areas. Although it is commonly recognised as a brief, solution- focused approach it is also effective in long-term treatment.
