Transactional Analysis (TA)

Overview:Transactional Analysis (TA)

Transactional Analysis assumes that an individual's personality can be expressed in three different modes or 'ego states'. These are the Parent, the Adult and the Child and each one may be expressed in different situations. The way we behave and the mode we choose in relationship with others is governed by our 'Life Script' which was set down by our early childhood experiences, and which we re-enact in our current relationships.

Interactions or 'transactions' are regarded as key to relationship functioning. An individual's interaction style is the focus for making specific behaviour changes, which are agreed between the therapist and client. These changes are brought about when both client and therapist relate to each other in Adult mode. This allows healthier ways of relating to emerge and helps improve functioning within the individual's other relationships. This means individuals can be more authentic in relationships, reacting to what is actually happening in the present moment, rather than something which happened to them in the past.

Who uses it?

Transactional Analysis is used by psychotherapists and TA-trained counsellors.

Clinical Partners trained in this approach include: Alan Bore, Tracy Goodman and Virginia Graham.

If you would like to arrange a consultation with a specialist Transactional Analysis therapist please call 0203 326 9160.

Why would someone use it?

Transactional Analysis is jointly led by both client and therapist, at different times during the therapeutic process. This may appeal to a wide range of individual personalities and preferences.

Transactional Analysis is used to explore a range of issues, including relationship issues, depression, low self-esteem, anxiety disorders and panic disorders.

Strengths of the approach:

TA is known as a 'contract-driven' therapy which means the client decides the changes they are seeking and both parties work together to fulfil this contract. This makes the purpose clear to both the client and the therapist.

Transactional Analysis is a short- to medium-term treatment, depending on the condition or issues that the client wishes to explore.

  • Many thanks for this and all your work in helping us get here far more swiftly than we have managed with the NHS. It is much appreciated, and you and Dr Chowdhury have helped greatly in relieving the stress we have been feeling by getting us to a place where we know what is going on, and what we need to do for our son.

  • Dr Alison was very caring and approachable. Your approach and response to my call will be remembered for a very long time.
