Transactional Analysis (TA) is an amazingly powerful psychological theory that has the surprising quality of being easily accessible for the newcomer, yet with a depth and complexity that can fascinate and satisfy practitioners for a lifetime.
Fiona Cook is a Certified Transactional Analyst and Psychotherapist and has a small private practice in Edinburgh. She has a very credible background in the NHS as a Registered Nurse Teacher and Facilitator and also owns a successful freelance practice development consultancy business, smallchangeBIGDIFFERENCE. Using Transactional Analysis (TA), Fiona works with healthcare agencies across the UK and more recently in Australia in this capacity. Her blend of knowledge and experience is invaluable in her work with clients as a facilitator of culture change, personal change, transformation and enhanced autonomy. She is a skilled communicator and facilitator, comfortable working at all levels of organisations to enable, encourage, inspire and empower individuals to maximise their full potential.
Fiona Firman has a busy full time psychotherapy practice in central Edinburgh where she works with individuals & couples. In addition, she has a supervision practice and is a trainer at Physis. She is passionate about teaching TA and supporting people’s growth and development on a personal and professional basis through the use of TA.
