Ecological Transactional Analysis

TA Embedded in the Natural World


Exciting New Developments in Transactional Analysis

On this page you will find two innovative new programmes - the first of their kind in the TA world - incorporating ecological thinking and approaches to practice. For more on the philosophy of Eco-TA, including commentary from the participants of the first ever Eco-TA course from earlier this year







Working in the Field

An Online Introduction to Eco-TA


This is an innovative introductory programme into ecotherapy and holistic education practice and theory for TA practitioners. Led by Hayley Marshall, PTSTA (P) and Giles Barrow TSTA (E), participants will be given opportunities to explore how nature, landscape and environment can provide powerful agency into clinical and educational practices.

Whilst ecotherapy and holistic education have been around for some years, they have, so far, remained outside of mainstream TA theory and practice. We see this programme being at the growing edge in terms of integrating these timely, earth-spirit based themes into the work of the TA practitioner. Whether it’s with a view to healing trauma with clients, building connection to natural agency, or promoting holistic development through learning, this programme will engage the practitioner with the outdoors, as classroom or therapy space, or perhaps something quite new entirely.


The programme is intended for an international audience and we encourage participants from across the global TA community, regardless of field of application, qualification or experience. We are drawing on our experience of already having led this programme online. Despite the apparent peculiarity of an online course focused on the outdoors, we can assure you that this really works! Participants will be spending an extended period of time outdoors and most of the on-line contact is interactive. We will not be using PowerPoint presentations

Topics will include working therapeutically with protocol, symbolic movement and experience, script, liminality, and clarifying vocational purpose, all in relation to an ecological perspective. Practical aspects of working outdoors with clients will also be covered, and it is intended that participants try out ideas in between workshops, feeding back and having supervision incorporated into the process.

Eco-TA. Round House

Finding our Common Ground

A Seasonal Course in Advanced Ecological TA

Based in the UK at two contrasting locations, this brand-new course offers participants an opportunity to explore working at ecological depth in both clinical and educational practice. Led by Hayley Marshall, PTSTA (P) and Giles Barrow TSTA (E), participants will work through four seasons to further develop their personal and professional ecological practice.

We will develop themes arising from the introductory Eco-TA course, with additional elements including indigeneity, ecological ethics & boundaries, working in the imaginal space, story-telling and psycho-spatial practice. Our aim is to deepen an ongoing exploration of what it means to practice TA ecologically.

The workshops form a unique programme of study and experience. It is expected that participants attend all four sessions. The programme spans a seasonal shift from autumn to early winter, in the northern hemisphere. The programme is intended for all those committed to developing the ecological dimension of TA and we actively encourage participants throughout the TA community, regardless of field of application, qualification or experience.
