"Ros Sharples offers and integrative approach to Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy in Pembrokeshire, West Wales"
Transactional Analysis helps people understand their relationship to others and themselves, clarifying how this may stem from past experiences.
“Do you not see how
necessary a world of pains and troubles is to school an intelligence and make it
Letters of John Keats
Transactional Analysis is a psychotherapeutic approach developed by Eric Berne. It is a wonderful technique for understanding how human beings work and why they relate to each other in certain ways. It is a process that looks at how the past may still be impacting the present. We will look at what you learned from your early relationships and clarify how you use this in the present in relationships to others. We also look at how how unconscious negative beliefs about yourself developed in childhood are played out in your life in general. By separating out what works from what doesn't work, what belongs to the past and what belongs to the present it is possible for you to change your future.
I share effective therapeutic tools with the client to clarify thoughts, empower the self, explore feelings, support change and create a space for healing to occur.
Do you ever feel that you are repeating patterns and wondering:
"What's going Wrong in my Life?"
.......And sometimes you feel really overwhelmed and young.
Well once upon a time you were a very small being in a very big world....
.......And at times that little part of you probably still feels overwhelmed.
As children we have to learn behaviours in order to cope with things that we may only partly understand. These ways of behaving helped us get by, but may be less useful now.
In practicing Transactional Analysis I believe it is important to 'get to know' that part of your self and give all those confusing feelings some time to express themselves in a safe and contained environment. I believe that all of who you are is important.
Part of therapy is developing a new internalised adult voice that is more nurturing and thoughtful about your wellbeing.
Have you ever thought;
"Why do I keep feeling/doing/ these same old things?”
“Why do similar difficulties keep happening to me?”
In therapy we investigate these patterns of behaviour and experiences; find ways to make the desired changes and to step out of the loops.
A Therapy of Relationship
Because TA looks at how we relate to each other and how this relates to the past it is has proved to be an extremely effective way of working with couples and groups.
