EMTAG Committee 2018

EMTAG 2018 Committee Members

Chair of EMTAG

Hello my name is Janine Piccirella. It is with great pleasure to be developing the third year of EMTAG.

I am passionate about the theory and practice of Transactional Analysis because personally and professionally I have experienced deep levels of understanding and healing through the use of TA.

I believe that EMTAG will encourage people to come together in the ethos of learning alongside one another.

Our theme for 2018 is ‘Trust’ which is an integral part of relationships, both with self an others.  We hope the ten workshops, research hub, mindfulness class and networking will offer a rich resource to help develop trust in each other.

I am proud to be Chair of EMTAG 2018 and am excited to be holding the gathering at Thrumpton Hall in Nottinghamshire.  We are confident that this year will bring even more people to experience the energy, creativity and valuable learning from one another.

I look forward to being with you on the 6th October 2018.


Vice Chair of EMTAG

Hello, my name is Rowena Lucas.

I have a TA Diploma from Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy and have been in private practice since 2009.

I am really proud that we are making this into a well respected and sought after conference, we are determined to offer fun, stimulation and learning along with thoughtfulness and caring.

I love TA, it is thoughtful, logical, effective and has great depth. My experience has shown me it’s tremendous facility to enable us to understand how human beings work, and therefore to offer them choices. This conference is one way to get this message out to the world.

Thrumpton Hall was the perfect venue last year so I am delighted we are able to experience it again. It is warm, friendly and interesting, with a wonderful sense of history and Englishness!

I will be focused on making this third gathering go with a swing.

Welcome to one and all!
