Anne also runs a selection of one day workshops including: 

Transactional Analysis for Counsellors -

Understand Transactional Analysis in a way that you can easily share with your clients to progress the work you do together. My clients love this approach and tell me it is very helpful to them.


In the workshop we will cover the basics of TA. We will begin with the ego states - how they function and how to recognise them, consider the effect of contamination, understand how our emotions get triggered and the constant battle between the Inner Critic and the Inner Child. We will look at how and why we relate to others in the way that we do, how we structure our time and invite stroking. When I teach TA, I usually find that with recognition of our ‘transactions’ comes lots of laughter!


Numbers in the workshop are limited to a maximum of 12 and the workshop will be interactive.


The Life Script 


In Transactional Analysis it is said that we begin to write our Life Script at birth and by the time we are four years old, the essentials of the plot are decided. By seven, all the main details are filled in. Have your heard the phrase ‘give me a boy until he’s seven, and I’ll show you the man’? The same applies to girls/women of course!


This workshop can be a follow-on from the TA workshop but it does stand alone. Participants will be supplied with a Life Script questionnaire prior to the workshop and we will spend the day identifying the main plot in our Life Script, the heroes and the villains and decide whether it is comical, tragic, boring or magical. We will become aware of family myths, the behaviours we unconsciously choose and the people we unconsciously attract that serve to edge us closer to our script outcome or payoff. We will analyse our Scripts with the understanding that becoming aware of our unconscious motives give us the power and the choice to make changes.


Numbers in the workshop are limited to a maximum of 12 and the workshop will be interactive.
