What is unique about coaching?  A view from Contemporary Transactional Analysis.

Do you think transactional analysis TA is all about Parent, Adult and Child?

Are you wanting to pinpoint what is key to coaching & differentiates it from other interventions?

Are you in need of stimulating professional development with really practical applications?

If the answer to any of the above is yes then this is for you!  Rosemary will be using experiential learning co-creatively and there will be a demonstration along with short opportunities to practice some of the ideas.


By the end of the day participants we will have:

  1. Reconsidered the positioning and processES of contracting in coaching.
  2. Used the concept of 'role worlds' (Bernd Schmid 2007) to identify significant aspects for a client.
  3. Practised lively coaching to explore how presenting issues are a result of how a role is inhabited.
  4. Wondered about the value of questions in coaching.
  5. A fresh appreciation of transactional analysis for 21st Century coaching.

Rosemary has been coaching since the late 1980s - both internally and independently to organisations and to individuals.

In the 1990s whilst looking for professional development which could underpin her practice she discovered the ’topographical’ and ‘geological’ maps of transactional analysis - and went on to qualify in Organisational applications of consultancy and coaching; and then Educational applications to learning and development - resulting in writing the book TACTICS (with Trudi Newton - they also wrote the TA chapter in the Sage Coaching compendium).

Later Rosemary added to her BACP qualification with TA Counselling. She also qualified as a supervisor and trainer in each of these areas, which include coaching, and provide in depth learning at TAworks in Oxford. She provides TA-based coach training in Brazil annually, and from time to time in India, Japan, and various European countries.
