Carole Stilwell

I am a qualified, professional practitioner with many years of experience. I have worked with adults and children in both private practice and voluntary settings including the NHS, Schools and with charities.

I have completed a four year training in Transactional Analysis and have received a Diploma in Counselling and have qualified as a Certified Transactional Analyst (CTA(P)), leading to UKCP Registration as a qualified psychotherapist. I am also an accredited member of BACP and have a second Diploma in Integrative Psychosexual Therapy. As a PTSTA (Provisional Teaching and Supervising Transactional Analyst) I am endorsed to supervise and teach Transactional Analysis, and have completed a Diploma in Supervision to supplement my supervision qualifications.

I am a professional member of UKATA, EATA, BACP, COSRT and UKCP and abide by their code of ethics. I am professionally supervised by a qualified supervisor as part of my commitment to ethical practice.

My theoretical approach is Transactional Analysis, which I have studied for four years. I use person-centred skills in my work and believe that developing a solid therapeutic relationship presents you with very solid foundations for personal change. I also incorporate some CBT techniques into my work when appropriate.

What is TA? Transactional Analysis, or TA as it is often shortened to, was founded by Dr. Eric Berne in the 1950s and has evolved since. He trained as a psychoanalyst but wanted to develop a theoretical approach that used simple language and was accessible to all. It is now a well-established approach used widely in psychotherapy and counselling.

At the heart of Transactional Analysis is the basic philosophy that :

People are OK – every individual has value and worth

Everyone has the capacity to think

People decide their own destiny and these decisions can be changed.
“I believe that everyone deserves and can achieve happiness in their lives”

Counselling and psychotherapy helps people with a wide variety of problems, including:

Depression
Anxiety and stress
Phobias
Bereavement and Loss
Low Self Esteem
Childhood Issues
