Neil Keenan (CTA, PTSTA, MUKCP)
I am a Provisional Training and Supervising Transactional Analyst and run UKCP-accredited psychotherapy training at a local training institute, as well as providing individual supervision to counsellors and psychotherapists across the UK and group supervision in my area. In my clinical work as a Certified Transactional Analyst, I work with adults and children in short- and long-term psychotherapy in private practice. Also, I have many years' experience working across primary and secondary schools across North Bristol as an external school therapist.
My specialist area of training and research is in working with people who have a diagnosis of high-functioning autism or who present with autistic psychology. I am a member of a research group in Bristol (https://www.thedifferentengine.net), which provides specialist training to schools, to mental health professionals and in businesses in this area. I am a trainer at Contact Point - a Registered Training Establishment of the United Kingdom Association for Transactional Analysis (https://contact-point.org.uk). I run a Bristol-based charity, Help! Counselling (https://www.help-counselling.org.uk), which provides low-cost sessions to children and young people in the West Country.
My theory and practice of psychotherapy are based on Transactional Analysis, which I have augmented with subsequent study in other psychotherapeutic and counselling modalities.
