It is always wonderful to see when a local TA person achieves the next level within the Transactional Analysts’ community – we are so happy for our SATAA chairperson Karen Pratt who passed her TSTA (E)! Well done Karen – from doing your TA 101 in 2001 to our CTA in 2008, then doing a Training Endorsement workshop and another 7 year contract for TSTA. What a journey!

Karen, it is wonderful to have you here in South Africa as a TSTA, and we know there are many people benefiting from the range of workshops you are offering, from your coaching, and your supervision.
