“a podcast about getting the best out of yourself and others”

“Transactional analysis is a social psychology developed by Eric Berne, MD (d.1970). Berne’s theory consists of certain key concepts that practitioners use to help clients and students, analyse systems and change patterns of interaction that interfere with achieving our life aspirations. Over the past 40 years, Berne’s theory has evolved to include applications in counseling, education, organizational development, and psychotherapy. Research studies have evaluated the effectiveness of transactional analysis in a wide variety of contexts. ” – ITAA. 

Transactional analysis (TA) is a widely recognised form of modern psychology, and one of the most accessible theories of psychology at that. In simple terms, TA is designed to promote personal growth and change. It is considered a fundamental therapy for well-being and for helping individuals to reach their full potential in all aspects of life.” www.counsellingdirectory.org.uk

John and Matt explore the rich seam of knowledge and understanding within TA by interviewing experts from a broad range of professional backgrounds.
