My Approach

I draw upon a unique blend of Transactional Analysis (TA) with other psychotherapy approaches, such as Psychodynamic, Object Relations and Attachment theory, to tailor the treatment specifically to the individual.

I provide a secure and non-judgmental space, ensuring the development of a relationship between us that facilitates you to be able to speak your truth.

I work collaboratively and closely with you to identify what has negatively impacted your life and offer opportunities to help you transform repeated negative behavioural patterns limiting your potential.

TA enables you to understand and analyse your personality and your relationship with others around you. It helps you recognise your value and worth - and empowers you to accomplish your goals in life while improving your relationships.

What is Transactional Analysis?

Transactional Analysis explores your personality and how different experiences shape it, especially those that stem from your childhood. As a TA psychotherapist, I use intelligent and skillful questioning, utilising various methodologies, tools, and models.

In the late 1950s, psychotherapist Eric Berne developed the theory to understand how people interact with others, which he did by analysing their relationships and how they communicate. He believed that every person has three ego states.

The core basis of the theory is that these states can affect how a person reacts in different situations and life positions.

Benefits of Transactional Analysis and Integrative Psychotherapy

Develop Self Awareness

Through Transactional Analysis, you can develop insight into your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours, learning things about yourself that you didn’t know before. It unveils your unexplored potential and opportunities.

Easy To Understand

Eric Berne developed the theory to be easy to understand. It employs simple models and language and has straightforward concepts, so even if you have little knowledge of psychotherapy, you can comprehend Transactional Analysis and implement it to improve your mental health and emotional well-being.

Enhances Communication

A significant benefit of using Transactional Analysis psychotherapy is that improving communication is a way of becoming aware of how you communicate and how that might hinder your communications and relationships so as to effectively alleviate conflicts over time. Clients who undergo TA psychotherapy can analyse the situation and focus on solutions.

Applies To Different Social Contexts

Transactional Analysis as an integrative psychotherapy is helpful in various social contexts. This makes it applicable to multiple relationships, such as romantic partners, family members, work colleagues, and others, as well as social identity and belonging.

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic therapy helps you understand how your early life and past experiences shape your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours.

We all have our habitual ways of thinking, feeling, relating, and behaving, which we may have developed from early life, to deal with various challenging aspects at that time - and we may not be aware of these repetitive negative habitual patterns.

Psychodynamic psychotherapy provides a space to explore, understand and break such as the unhelpful patterns once they are raised in your awareness.

Object Relations Theory

Object Relations theory is about understanding how we internalise our early childhood attachments and how those beliefs affect our later relationships.

While the term might make you think of an inanimate object, it refers to the significant people in your life. The theory suggests that the interaction and dynamic between our internal self and the important people in our lives heavily influence our development.

Attachment Theory

Attachment theory focuses on relationships and bonds (particularly long-term) between people, including between a parent and child and between romantic partners. It is a psychological explanation for the emotional bonds and relationships between people.

This theory suggests that people are born with a need to forge bonds with caregivers as children. These early bonds may continue to influence attachments throughout life.

Who can I Work With?

Couples Therapy

Couples psychotherapy can help you and your partner to communicate and understand each other better. We identify your issues and find solutions. I explore the hidden dynamics within your relationship by helping you understand the subconscious and conscious behaviours to develop a more useful way of communicating and relating that leads to permanent change.

Individual Therapy

Psychotherapy works in various ways. It is a very personal and subjective experience for each individual. During psychotherapy, it is a space to be heard and to express your concerns. Together, we work on removing, modifying, or reducing the issues and difficulties you face while gaining greater self-awareness to achieve personal growth and self-fulfillment, vastly positively improving your relationships with impacting your family, friends, and colleagues.
