Transactional Analysis for professionals (1 Day - £99 per person)


Bold Moves delivers this course to professionals interested in learning TA for the first time or building on a basic level of knowledge. The course provides useful theories and concepts that can be applied in both personal and professional lives.

The course introduces some of the main concepts of TA including ideas such as:


  • 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

We identify strategies to help relate these concepts to ourselves and others while identifying alternative options for behaviour and communication. Participants will be invited to use the theory presented to reflect on their own practice through a combination of teaching, discussion, practical exercise and time for reflection.
