I am a Certified Transactional Analyst Psychotherapist, CTA (P) and a Teaching and Supervising Transactional Analyst, TSTA (P). I have a Diploma in Counselling (Dip. Couns.), a Diploma in Supervision (Dip. Sup.) and in addition, I hold an undergraduate honours degree in the Humanities, a Masters's degree in the field of Communication, and a teaching Diploma.
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
