Transactional Analysis
and CBT

What is it?

TA is a form of therapy which is rooted in equality and accessibility. TA  gives me access to an array of techniques and models to support you, while adapting my approach to suit your individual needs.

Transactional Analysts view many of our everyday issues as having origins in our early lives. The patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving set in early life often play out again and again, limiting our ability to be in the here and now.

CBT or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

I am also able to offer CBT to clients.  CBT aims to improve mental health by challenging unhelpful thinking patterns, improving emotional regulation and developing personal coping strategies.

"I nursed my terminally ill partner of 32 years under unimaginable stress combining that with coping with the Covid pandemic and three teenage children. Mark faithfully spent the necessary time listening to me as my life turned upside down. He has also faithfully spent the necessary time listening to me as I’ve rebuilt myself and my life, slowly but very surely. Mark is highly professional yet empathetic, unassuming and supportive. He has an impressive attention to detail, is punctual, and is a superb communicator. He is a very good listener. Mark rarely gives solutions but always talks strategies."
