EMTAG 2017 Committee Members

Chair of EMTAG

Hello my name is Janine Piccirella, Chair of the East Midlands Transactional Analysis (TA) Gathering for 2017.  A Provisional Teacher and Supervisor in TA (P) and EMDR Practitioner, I hold UKCP Registration and MBACP Accreditation. My private Psychotherapy practice is in Nottingham.

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

In 2015 with friends and colleagues who shared my passion for TA, EMTAG was created. November 2016 was EMTAG’s first event, held at The Berne Institute. We were proud that Dr Mark Widdowson, Adrienne Lee along with nine experienced TA colleagues supported our first event.  Here's the photographs from last years gathering: 2016 Gallery

I am proud to be Chair of EMTAG 2017 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 meeting you on the 30th September 2017.
