My journey in TA training started in 1994 while I was Deputy Head of a Polytechnic department. A significant conflict had erupted between two Heads of Departments and I was asked to work with them to find an effective outcome. Using my intuition and common sense we were able to resolve the conflict. One of the people involved identified that I had unwittenly used Transactional Analysis in the conflict resolution process. She explained the theory which made complete sense.
I had already started my new business of training and consulting and I realised I needed a robust theoretical framework to underpin it. After researching TA I realised this was a perfect fit for me and the business. So my journey in TA began. I was able to immediately apply the theory both in my personal and professional life, reinforcing how practical and valuable it is.
Now I am committed to teaching TA to others who want to expand their understanding, capabilities and skills so they can have successful, healthy relationships. I get a great deal of satisfaction from seeing people get those ‘ah ha’ moments, and move from worry and anxiety to a place of hope and excitement.
