Relational Transactional Analysis Transactional analysis offers a theory and practice of human personality and personality of organizations. It will develop your of understanding human and organizational origins, dynamics and interactions. Transactional Analysis has its roots in psychodynamic and humanistic practice, and was developed by founder Dr. Eric Berne, a psychiatrist by profession. Since his death it has been further developed by renowned theorists, authors and practitioners.
Relational transactional analysis is one of the many approaches within transactional analysis, including the unconscious dynamics of transference and countertransference, proactively. Beyond Eric Berne, this approach is based on the works of Dr Stephen Mitchell, Dr Lew Aron, Charlotte Sills and Helena Hargaden and further developed by others.

“Training in psychotherapy is a big commitment and challenging because it is very much about personal growth, self awareness and learning about who you are and who you will be as a psychotherapist. I chose ACIS Psychotherapy Training because the training is personalised, professional and ethical. Also, the school is part of an international network which continues to grow and evolve and the qualification is internationally recognised.”
“After having done careful research into Psychotherapy training programs, I chose ACIS for many reasons:
The Humanistic philosophy and values of both Transactional Analysis and ACIS: we are all unique individuals striving towards growth and health.
The format of training - long-term, experiential learning in both small and larger groups - offers a rich environment for learning and application of theory and skills. The support I required to begin working as a trainee Psychotherapist, while integrating the theory with practice. ACIS Psychotherapy training has been the most valuable training for me and I am a more autonomous and integrated person and psychotherapist thanks to my experience at ACIS."

“ACIS Psychotherapy training has helped me integrate into an effective psychotherapist but most importantly the training process had helped me understand my strengths and my weaknesses. The training has helped me integrate this into being a clinician “who thinks clinically in the service of her clients/patients”. This environment created a space where I could look at the shadow side which we all have, and use it to be a more effective psychotherapist."
