Transactional analysis is a modern form of psychotherapy where interpersonal behaviors are studied. The therapeutic process serves as a powerful tool for positive change and growth with the goal of helping you develop and strengthen your adult state. In TA, it is understood that each of our personalities is made up of three ego states–the parent, the child, and the adult.
A focus on social interactions and relationships
Do your relationships cause anxiety and/or a low mood? Have you been surprised to find others’ ideas of you do not match how you see yourself?
Together we will troubleshoot your social interactions and help improve your self-awareness. The goal of transactional analysis is to help you create changes in your relationships and your life.
In transactional analysis, we focus on the present and do not spend hours discussing your past. Therapy is conducted with the aim of understanding why you think, feel and act the ways that you do. Throughout the therapeutic process, you will learn to manage and change your social interactions as well as how you feel about yourself.
More than just a therapeutic approach
Transactional analysis is also used in professional organizations. The principles and philosophies have been applied to help professionals reach their maximum potential in the realms of connecting and relating. Transactional analysis is adaptable and relevant to all children, adolescents, and adults regardless of their environment or social circumstances.
What can I expect in a therapy session?
The atmosphere of transactional analysis is one of comfort, safety, and respect. A positive relationship between the therapist and client is created and maintained. For many clients, the therapeutic relationship serves as a model for future relationships outside the therapeutic environment.
The therapeutic process follows a structured and practical model designed to create changes that will improve your relationships and your life. At the beginning of our therapeutic relationship, we will establish an agreement that outlines the desired, measurable outcome of therapy.
