Stage Two Accelerated Learning: Clinical Training in Transactional Analysis


The Connexus Institute has developed an accelerated pathway to qualification as a psychotherapist for those who are already qualified counsellors or therapists (or nearing qualification), regardless of the modality or approach you trained in.  

Training options:

Depending on your current qualifications, clinical experience and level of TA knowledge, if any, you will be eligible to follow either a two-year or a three-year route which will build on your existing knowledge and skills. This will enable you to complete the formal training elements required to qualify as a UKCP registered Transactional Psychotherapist and become a Certified Transactional Analyst (CTA) accredited by EATA.

Connexus Institute has been accredited as a Registered Training Establishment by the United Kingdom Association for Transactional Analysis (UKATA), and through UKATA, you can get UKCP accreditation if the relevant criteria are met.

Route One – For those with no existing TA knowledge

For those who have not studied Transactional Analysis before, our three-year route comprises a two-day TA101 course followed by attendance on our highly enjoyable Stage One Foundation year. Upon successful completion of this year, you will be eligible to take our clinical fast-track training, comprising of 22 days over one academic year, followed by our Stage Three advanced clinical year.

Route Two – For those with existing TA knowledge such as a Foundation Year (or equivalent)

For those who have studied some Transactional Analysis before our two-year route comprises completion of our  Part 2 clinical fast-track year, followed by our Stage Three, advanced clinical year.             

Why attend?

This is an excellent opportunity for qualified counsellors to gain the additional elements required to qualify as a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist, via UKATA, and as a Certified Transactional Analyst, regardless of the modality or approach of their existing training and qualification.  Learning in small groups where your existing knowledge will be respected and valued, this is an enjoyable and stimulating route to qualification in which you will be fully supported by our team of highly experienced Tutors.
