TA Training with YTCi in Timisoara - 2017

Dave Spenceley Course Director - an internationally recognised TA psychotherapist trainer and supervisor.

Dave Spenceley TSTA is the course Director and in 2017 Dave will be running all the workshops in Timisoara. The group will have a mix of foundation and advanced members meaning that each participant can develop their competence and practice as well as developing their knowledge, understanding and application of TA theory and practice.  

TA training can lead to TA psychotherapy qualification - as a certified transactional Analyst - with external examinations run by the European Association for Transactional Analysis.


Using TA philosophy and practice YTCi trainers will create a supportive atmosphere in which you can safely develop both professionally and personally.


TA training is focused on professional and personal growth. The workshops include theoretical input, discussions, supervision and self experience. You will learn TA concepts and methodology and apply the theory to your professional practice. You will have opportunity for using the TA approaches within the group and for receiving supervision of your professional practice.


Preparing for qualification as a TA psychotherapist is process orientated and competency-based offering you the opportunity for personal and professional reflection. This is reflected in the course design, the course requirements and the final external examination process for qualification.


Many attend TA training without intending to take the external examinations, or without having decided to complete the training - if you are in this position you will be welcome to join the training group and to explore how the group can best meet your requirements.


The training is process orientated offering you the opportunity for personal reflection on areas which have an impact on your professional work. - Description of the aims and methodology of TA training at YTCi - pdf file
