Training Programs in Psychotherapy


The Wellington Transactional Analysis Training Institute Inc is a group of Wellington-based psychotherapists who have joined together to ensure professional training is available in the capital.

We run a 3-year part-time training course as well as 2-day introductory courses.

Transactional Analysis

Transactional Analysis (TA) is a theory of human personality, a theory of social behaviour, and a comprehensive system of psychotherapy originated by Eric Berne, M.D. (1910-1970) in the late 1950's.

Significant features of TA are that it is applicable to situations as diverse as psychotherapy for mildly to severely disturbed individuals, couples and families; the education of children and adolescents; and consultation and management training in government and business organizations.

At it's heart Transactional Analysis is a humanistic system of understanding which assumes people are OK and capable of autonomy.
