Opportunities to work with me

If you are interested in being involved with what I am doing you might be interested in the following partnerships and events this coming year. My work tends to fall across the three domains of soil, soul and society. Whether you have connected with me through transactional analysis, individual coaching or the educational context, I’m sure there is something here for you...

Working together here at the farm

For those that can make the journey to Suffolk I have been offering a range of opportunities to come and work with me here at my home and smallholding. After a quiet year due to the pandemic, 2021 will see a return to a new programme of events which I anticipate will become more comprehensive from 2022. The Mill House is situated near Framlingham in East Suffolk and we work in the cosy and magical yurt, the ancient wise space in the old mill roundhouse, or outside in the gardens and fields. We have some limited, basic arrangements for self-catering, sleeping over, or camping for those that welcome sleeping under the stars.

Currently I am taking bookings for the following 'live' events:

If you are already involved in TA training and want to join an informal group to discuss Educational TA, I am working in partnership with Leilani Mitchell at the Link Centre and we have set up The Watering Hole, a series of discussion sessions over the year. Each evening we will take a look at one of my Transactional Analysis Journal articles and have an open discussion about the ideas.

The Watering Hole

I am the programme lead trainer for the Educational TA course at the Berne Institute. Although this year has already begun, I encourage you to be in touch with the Berne if you are wanting to join next year’s programme.

The Berne Institute

For those interested in preparing for examinations in Transactional Analysis, I am running a group at the Berne Institute starting on-line in September later this year running through to July 2022.

I am also working in partnership with Sari v. Poelje TSTA (O) and Sue Eusden TSTA (P) at INTACT. There are two opportunities for exam preparation. The first is an annual April event in Utrecht and the second is a new on-line programme, Deepening the Conversation.

Utrecht CTA/PTSA Supervision Group Deepening the Conversation

Over this past year there has been a lot of interest in the development of Ecological Transactional Analysis which I have been in partnership with Hayley Marshall PTSTA (P). We still have places on the advanced course in Eco-TA which begins later in the spring. This involves attendance here in Suffolk at Mill House, and in Derbyshire.
