Transactional Analysis;

In Transactional Analysis or TA, the counsellor works with 3 fundamental beliefs;

  1. Everyone is okay, meaning all humans are equals

  2. Everyone has the capacity to think

  3. Everyone has the right and responsibility to make their own choices

And a person mind operates in a mixture of ‘ego states’ that we function and relate in.

  1. Parent – either nurturing or critical

  2. Adult

  3. Child – either adaptive or free

TA works by allowing the client the space to examine and explore how they respond to those around them, what ego state the frequent and when and what happens to the resulting relationships.
