I offer supervision to counsellors, psychotherapists, nurses and other health professionals, teaching and business professionals who are interested in developing healthy working relationships in their work roles and who wish to reflect on achievements and areas for growth.

My supervision with nurses and other health professionals counts towards annual professional development hours.

TA101: Transactional Analysis Introductory Course

The TA101 is suitable for trainees and practitioners in counselling, psychotherapy, and mental health, and persons in a supervisory or managing position, educators, and health professionals. It is a prerequisite for those who plan to train in transactional analysis.

Transactional analysis is both a theory of human development and a practical psychological approach for working with people in a variety of fields. It can be used as a simple model for personal development and easily applied in the workplace, in the classroom, and in counselling situations. At an advanced level it becomes a powerful modality of psychotherapy.

The TA101 introductory course conforms to the standards set by the International Transactional Analysis Association. It is an experiential workshop that looks at self-development, using the transactional analysis model, and it provides a series of tools for understanding and changing the way we think, feel, and behave. It includes lectures, exercises, and discussions that explore the various concepts.

Workshop leader:  Vicky Blake, Provisional Teaching and Supervising Transactional Analyst (PTSTA) and Registered Psychotherapist.
