Psychotherapy and counselling training

Are you looking to make a change so you feel fulfilled with your work? Perhaps you are dissatisfied with your current career. Do people interest you? Perhaps you want to help others or are looking to retrain in a new career? If so, then retraining to work as a psychotherapist or counsellor can offer you a rewarding and fascinating profession. Furthermore, if you are thinking of training in psychotherapy, you may want to explore training in transactional analysis.

With work and home commitments, changing careers can sometimes be difficult. At TA Training Organisation we offer a course that can fit around your current situation, whether that is work or family-life. Our part-time Foundation Certificate and Diploma training courses are an ideal starting point to understanding if this is the new career for you.

The course:

  • UKATA Diploma in Transactional Analysis (Dip TA) Post graduate equivalent counselling qualification in transactional analysis
  • UKCP Registered Training Establishment
  • Apprenticeship model that is based on meeting requirements offering flexibility of learning
  • Students usually achieve the requirements within 3-4 years
  • Option to extend the programme to Certified Transactional Analyst psychotherapist status and UKCP registration as a psychotherapist

Your journey starts with the foundation year

Our students get a clear understanding of what Transactional Analysis psychotherapy is all about through our Foundation Year. This puts them in the best possible position to progress through the next stages, which are the equivalent of post-graduate training.

“The Foundation Certificate has provided me with a thorough basis in TA, not only learning the theory but having my critical thinking encouraged and challenged.

The trainers attend to creating a warm and safe space where personal and group awareness, exploration and development can happen.” 

~ Leanne Riley, TA training student.
