The Official Introduction to Transactional Analysis (TA101)

What is the TA101 Course?

This two-day internationally recognised transactional analysis training course (online and in-person) is packed full of useful ideas that can be applied in a wide range of personal and professional settings. Transactional analysis (TA) is used widely throughout the world in organisations, education, counselling, psychotherapy, parenting, coaching and many other areas. It is well known for being accessible and practical in its application in our everyday lives whilst having theoretical depth for those who wish to continue in the study.

You will be invited to reflect upon yourself and others, to integrate the learning, and to bring real examples from your own life and identify alternative options for behaviour and communication that will serve you better.

Introduction to Transactional Analysis

The teaching in the introduction to transactional analysis training course is interactive, lively and stimulating and groups are kept small (usually max 20) to enhance your learning. We will use a combination of teaching, discussion, practical exercise and time for reflection.

TA101 Course Online

We are currently offering both in-person and online TA101 courses (see course date information). 

We will cover topics such as:

  • Life script and how we make decisions early in our life that become unconscious and affect us now both professionally and personally
  • Psychological Games and how we and others unconsciously set up repetitive patterns to keep our world predictable and familiar
  • Ego States and the different aspects of ourselves and others and how we can operate from each of these
  • Transactions and the ways with which we communicate with others
  • Rackets and how we and others can create our own reality and stay wedded to that
  • and much more

 “I really enjoyed the TA101 – it’s left me looking forward to getting it all in more detail from the Foundation Year course. Geoff was a fantastic course leader, clearly exhibiting compassion and knowledge from a long career in helping others. The group was friendly, open and engaged. Great experience!” – Dan – TA101 participant – September 2023

“I would recommend this course to anyone wishing to engage with others.” TA101 participant – March 2024

“The course was very full and informative and Leilani was very knowledgeable about TA, gave really easy to understand examples and was very relatable and down to earth.  I really enjoyed the interaction with the other participants.  I think it would have added another dimension to have been face to face, however, the fact that it was online allowed me to attend from abroad without having to fly over so that was a big plus and the two days were very well managed online.” – Alison – Online TA101 participant – March 2021

TA101s are offered all around the world, lets hear what some of our colleagues thought of their experience
