Why Transactional Analysis?

Why Transactional Analysis?
I have explained in an earlier piece what exactly is Transactional Analysis. Now I would like to share with you why this specific direction of psychotherapy is so important to me personally and why I chose it for my work – why I found myself responding to it so readily. After all, there are no “better” or “worse” directions in therapy, but there is always something that appeals to us, charges us with energy, makes us tick, vibrates in the same rhythm as ou...

What is Supervision, and Why Would Anyone Need It?

What is Supervision, and Why Would Anyone Need It?
To be perfectly frank, the concept of supervision is a relatively new one for me. It may seem strange, but I never came across this term when I was studying psychology basics at university. Once I finally learned about the practice of supervision, I sighed with relief.
