Transactional Analysis (TA) is a model for understanding human personality, relationships and communication. It was first developed by the late Eric Berne, MD, in the late 1950s. Since then, TA has continued to grow and gained outstanding in the depth of its theory and the wide variety of its applications, among psychological approaches.
TA is a talking therapy that promote personal growth and change, helping the individuals to reach their full potential in all aspects of life. Sessions are designed to explore an individual's personality and how this has been shaped by exprerience, particularly those stemmimg from childhood.
Many people find TA therapy appealing as promotes an equal relationship between client and therapist, in which the client is encouraged to focuse on their commitment to change. Berne believed eveyone has the capacity to decide what they want for their lives, and the therapy helps clients to recognise their worth and value in order to go about achieving these goals.
