Who is the psychotherapy training programme for?


Transactional Analysis (TA) is a theory of personality and interpersonal behaviour, and a method of psychotherapy. It gives us a way of understanding ourselves and our relationships.

TA is the primary modality but several other modalities are also included in the 4 year syllabus. You might want to attend to change your own career over time, for your own learning, development, understanding of your self, understanding of your relationships or for your own enjoyment.

You only sign up for one year at a time and you do not commit to attending more than one year - although if you want to you can attend for the whole four years and anything in between.

If you are seeking professional membership with BACP and or UKATA or EATA you can achieve this by meeting all the criteria throughout the 3 or 4 year part-time training - meeting the criteria, for either award, can take longer if you want.

You may want to consider training if you are:

Interested in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy, Counselling, personal development, professional development, or improving your communication skills and relationships both professionally and personally.

OR - would like to enhance your understanding and skills in working with people

OR - are practising as a counsellor and want to develop your effectiveness with a wider range of clients and problems

OR - are somebody who would like to explore a new career as a psychotherapist or counsellor

OR - would like to personally develop your understanding of yourself with like minded people

What's on offer?

smcp offers:

Two day Introductory courses: Understanding Human Personality (sometimes called the official '101' course).

Part time, flexible, weekend, training in psychotherapy and counselling. The core model is Transactional Analysis.


Adult learners entering the main training programme at smcp do not do so with the same experience:

some have read a lot and some haven't
some have attended their own psychotherapy or counselling and some haven't
some have worked in professions that are related to the delivery of counselling or psychotherapy and some haven't
and some people have done none of these


smcp provides an approach and structure that recognises individual experience and each person's uniqueness. 98% of students, in their end of year feedback, rate the training structure as excellent and this has been the case for every training year since 2008.

BACP and UKATA and EATA membership and Time frame



All students train in the same group and remain in the same group for either three years of training for the Certificate award (in Therapeutic Counselling) or four years of training for the Diploma award (Psychotherapeutic Counselling) or four years for the Certified Transactional Analysis award (full details below). As well as attending the training days, students will have to achieve other criteria on route to all the awards (please see below). The time frame in achieving the other criteria is up to the student but there are some limits.
