About the UK Association for Transactional Analysis

Welcome to the United Kingdom Association forTransactional Analysis. UKATA is the UK national organisation representing all fields of TA theory and practice.
Formerly the Institute of Transactional Analysis, it was founded in 1974 by a small group of people and since that time the TA community in the UK and worldwide has grown and developed.

TA can be used as an effective tool in a wide range of contexts such as: personal development, management, coaching, counselling, psychotherapy, teaching, education, parenting and more.

UKATA is a vibrant organisation of approximately 900 members with over 80 volunteers in a range of roles: organising events, ensuring training standards, upholding ethical practice, increasing member benefits, promoting TA, managing the business of UKATA, supporting research, organising and managing exams, representing UKATA in other relevant organisations, producing our magazine and other roles.

If you would like to be a part of this community, we would be happy to welcome you.
