TAworks

Combines the talents of many qualified transactional analysts with a rich breadth of TA perspectives and applications from across the world, plus the specialist applications of skilled TA learners.

We are passionate about transactional analysis and how we can use its concepts and philosophy to realise our creative potential in the way we live our lives and to enjoy fulfilling relationships. We find TA useful professionally in ways:

We aim to ‘walk our talk’ — to transparently live the values and processes which underpin TA, to continuously be learning throughout all our experiences of others and of the wider world. All who work with TAworks subscribe to the ethical codes of the transactional analysis associations and are committed to their work being supervised.

who we are

Rosemary Napper is a TSTA and CTA in the fields of Organisations, Education and Counselling. “I was born a ‘third-culture kid’ and this sparked my passion for social anthropology and social psychology, and for developing TA as a resource for intercultural understanding. It has also led me to travel the world: TA has been a wonderful way to make lifelong friends and colleagues on all the continents. I’ve authored several books and chapters on TA (including the long-selling TACTICS with Trudi Newton TSTA-E), and my enthusiasm is for adult learning and developing the TAworks Learning Centre in Oxford. Here we focus on integrating experiential learning and a co-creative approach in an emergent curriculum with a systemic perspective in each of the TA strands. We offer this for coaches, consultants, facilitators, trainers, counsellors, leaders, managers, and professionals working with people – as well as in the specialist development of TA trainers and supervisors, both online and in live workshops.”

Thorsten Geck is an Organisational TSTA and CTA and leads the Organisational strand at TAworks. “Our boutique training centre represents what is important and is proven to be effective TA, emphasising a systemic perspective, highlighting emergent design, with a stance towards others based on open communication and Ok-ness. This approach empowers my experience in working with a variety of organisations in the 21st century.”

Sian Ponting is a CTA-E who trained in TA Counselling at TAworks. She is considering another CTA whilst waiting to become a PTSTA. “I treasure the systemic perspective used at TAworks, where full considerations of the different fields of TA provides both depth and breadth of knowledge in practice. TAworks has a global community of trainees and trainers which makes for a unique learning experience. I spent most of my working life as an educator in one way or another – at first in youth and community work and now teaching Higher Education in the UK. I am looking forward to contributing to the People Practitioner and Education strands, learning alongside participants, supporting their own development and learning. I passionately believe that TA training should be inspiring, enjoyable and challenging, and plan to develop a social justice curriculum.”

James Longwell is a CTA-O who recently joined the TAworks staff team to assist in the Foundation and Organisational programmes. “I studied Systemic Transactional Analysis at TAworks and experienced multiple benefits both professionally and personally – many of them transformational. I am delighted, now that I have obtained my CTA in Organisational TA, to join the training team and support others in their learning journeys.”
