Foundation Certificate in Transactional Analysis Theory (online)

This live online course (using Zoom) is for those who would like to deepen their theoretical knowledge of TA and to apply it in a range of areas such as personal development, counselling, coaching, management, care work, parenting, education, and psychotherapy.  The September 2020 to July 2021 course was first introduced as a response to the Covid situation and was very popular.  We are currently looking at the possibility of running the course in a similar format for the academic year 2021/2022.

This is a stand- alone Certificate in TA Theory. If you are interested in progressing onto our face to face counselling (advanced TA) and psychotherapy training in October 2021, based in Plumpton, East Sussex, there will be an APL (accreditation of prior learning) route .  Teaching will be  online (via Zoom) led by a small group of Link Centre core tutors, and will be interactive, with taught elements, case examples and experiential exercises and breakout rooms will be frequently used.

Pre Course requirement: Attendance on TA101 , Completed application form and successful interview.  We are interviewing online now so please contact us to discuss the course and book an interview
