Transactional analysis (TA) is a theory of personality and communication that was founded as a psychotherapeutic method by Eric Berne in the 1950s. It is based on the fact that every human being is OK, that every human being has their own capacities and potentials by which they have the abilities to think, decide and change their life and themselves in it.
Transactional analysis (TA) in the field of psychotherapy is my choice and one of the ways to provide people with professional, honest, and genuine help and support, offering them space to develop and grow through overcoming their developmental deficits, but it is also a powerful tool that serves them outside the psychotherapy environment. TA helps people to discover how they live their unconscious life scenarios (scripts), which leads to raised awareness, as well as easier and more constructive functioning in everyday life. By using the past as a field for gathering information, a person can change their decisions and take actions in their present, thus contributing to the development of their roots in the future. Psychotherapy aims at creating one's roots in the future, which is accomplished by working on the development of one's own personality, which is a process through which a person can grow and develop throughout their life, either in a therapeutic process or outside it.
