About us

Posts Rosemary-3.png

Rosemary Napper is a TSTA and CTA in the fields of Organisations, Education and Counselling.

“I was born a ‘third-culture kid’ and this sparked my passion for social
anthropology and social psychology, and for developing TA as a resource for intercultural
understanding. It has also led me to travel the world: TA has been a wonderful way to make
lifelong friends and colleagues on all the continents. I’ve authored several books and chapters
on TA (including the long-selling TACTICS with Trudi Newton TSTA-E), and my enthusiasm is
for adult learning and developing the TAworks Learning Centre in Oxford. Here we focus on
integrating experiential learning and a co-creative approach in an emergent curriculum with a
systemic perspective in each of the TA strands. We offer this for coaches, consultants,
facilitators, trainers, counsellors, leaders, managers, and professionals working with people –
as well as in the specialist development of TA trainers and supervisors, both online and in live workshops.”

Thorsten Geck

Thorsten Geck is an Organisational TSTA and CTA and leads the Organisational strand at TAworks.


“Our boutique training centre represents what is important and is proven to

be effective TA, emphasising a systemic perspective, highlighting emergent

design, with a stance towards others based on open communication and Ok-ness.

This approach empowers my experience in working with a variety of

organisations in the 21st century.”

Sian Ponting

Sian Ponting is a CTA-E who trained in TA Counselling at TAworks. She is considering another
CTA whilst waiting to become a PTSTA.


“I treasure the systemic perspective used at TAworks,
where full considerations of the different fields of TA provides both depth and breadth of
knowledge in practice. TAworks has a global community of trainees and trainers which makes
for a unique learning experience. I spent most of my working life as an educator in one way or
another – at first in youth and community work and now teaching Higher Education in the UK.
I am looking forward to contributing to the People Practitioner and Education strands,
learning alongside participants, supporting their own development and learning. I
passionately believe that TA training should be inspiring, enjoyable and challenging, and plan
to develop a social justice curriculum.”

James Longwell

James Longwell is a CTA-O who recently joined the TAworks staff team to assist in the
Foundation and Organisational programmes.


“I studied Systemic Transactional Analysis at
TAworks and experienced multiple benefits both professionally and personally – many of
them transformational. I am delighted, now that I have obtained my CTA in Organisational TA,
to join the training team and support others in their learning journeys.”
