CPD Programme

Transactional Analysis and Coaching

Transactional Analysis, commonly known as TA, was developed by Eric Berne, as an explanation of why we think, feel, and behave in the ways we do. According to TA, at any one time each person is in the grip of one of 3 ego states Parent, Adult or Child; and is prone to living out a Life Script, decided upon early in childhood, and to playing Psychological Games; as an alternative to authentic living.   

This session will provide coaches with an overview of what Transactional Analysis is and will share practical insights and tools, including how to:

  • Identify which ego state (Parent, Adult or Child) they, their colleagues and their clients are operating from – and how to switch between ego states quickly to achieve the best possible outcomes.
  • Identify areas of their lives where they may have written Losing or Non-Winning Scripts and turn them into Winning Scripts.
  • Recognize and gain control of the 5 key Psychological Drivers: ‘Hurry Up’, ‘Be Perfect’, ‘Try Hard’, ‘Be Strong’ and ‘Please People’.
  • Incorporate key concepts from Transactional Analysis within their coaching practice, including OK-ness, Discounting, Transference and Counter Transference
  • Maximize your impact as a coach by becoming more flexible in how you relate to clients.
  • Make decisions in the ‘here-and-now, free of the influence of earlier decisions about your restrictions and capabilities.

This session is part of our Continual Professional Development (CPD) for Coaches Programme. This training is aimed towards those wishing to advance their coaching knowledge and therefore you will need to have previously engaged in foundational coach training.  About Your Trainer:
