This programme is a work-based, very practical programme for those wishing to develop their competence in and professional application of transactional analysis.
It will be relevant to you if you are a coach, counsellor,
teacher, trainer, facilitator, psychotherapist, consultant, mediator, social worker, human resource professional, psychotherapist or any other role where you have a professional responsibility for the development or
cure of others.
It will be equally useful to anyone who wants to develop their own interpersonal skills and increase their understanding and awareness of the dynamics of childhood development, relationships,
teams, families, organisations, institutions, communities, without necessarily wanting to obtain a formal qualification.
If you have previous TA training from internationally-accredited TA trainers, you may be
able to join our programme at the Diploma level – otherwise this level is intended to follow on from the
Certificate level studies. Please click
on the link for the Certificate level if you are interested in the optional qualifications that are available for coaches and managers.
The International Centre for Transactional Analysis Qualifications (ICTAQ) Diploma
can represent the second year of studies towards the international accreditation as a Certified Transactional Analyst (CTA) and/or towards an MSc Professional Development.
TA is widely used internationally,
has a robust background based on many years’ application in psychotherapy in addition to organisational consulting and training, educational, counselling and coaching specialisms. DTA and TAP use the same theories
- TAP focus is on cure and pathology and DTA is on development and healthy functioning.
The program is led by internationally-accredited trainers, who also provide professional supervision/mentoring:
this means that credits can also be applied towards accreditation by the international TA associations.
We also accept hours spent learning from our international TA colleagues, subject to some restrictions relating
to the differences in approach for TA psychotherapy versus developmental TA.
We're always happy to talk through options with you and discuss your training needs

Note: These 'modules' are options against which students submit evidence of their professional activity - and which the programme of monthly themes addresses each year, updated as new material is published. Apart from modules marked '#',
students may choose optional modules that fit with the work they are doing – there is no requirement to undertake projects simply to obtain the qualification. There are no 'essays' as such, students submit reflective commentaries about
their professional activities. Those marked # are core elements that are relevant in all TA application.
We run mixed-level training - beginners see the role models of more advanced students, who then are reminded not
to be too 'technical' when they apply TA with people. More significantly this stimulates different levels of learning - the first learning of TA generates self awareness; the second prompts you to think about others, including clients;
the third allows you to consider how to approach theory even more effectively with clients; and if you're reviewing the theories for the fourth time, you're hopefully concentrating on presenting what you know and how you apply it
with clients, to a group of professional colleagues as you take your final exams!
