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 loved this course! It’s fast paced and packed with incredibly useful ideas that were explained and illustrated with great examples and practice. We were supported as a group and individually by Leilani who is a brilliant trainer. She presented complex ideas and made them accessible. Engaging, informative and oh so useful!” TA101 participant – January 2020

May I take this opportunity to say just what a wonderful course that was and that I am so going to learn and develop from this.  Your course made me be the most honest that I have ever felt towards myself and that was an immeasurable gift” – TA101 participant – July 2016 

“I thoroughly enjoyed the course and I am not sure how it could be improved except by doing it in person. It was well- constructed, plenty of interactive material and appropriate break times. I felt the whole course passed in a flash. I am finding that I can remember things from the course and discuss them with others. I have already recommended the course to one friend!” – Gill – Online TA101 participant – January 2021

“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
