About me

Ioana PREDA, CTA-P, UKCP, MBACP

Between 2006 and 2013 I trained as a Transactional Analysis Psychotherapist and qualified in 2013 with the European Association for Transactional Analysis.

I have over 8 years of experience working as a psychotherapist, including the NHS and the private sector. I have specific experience of working with clients who have experienced early emotional trauma, and physical and sexual abuse.

My clients come from a wide range of racial and cultural backgrounds and I work affirmatively with people of various sexual and gender identities. I have particular interest in how culture and individual family history shape our mind and influence our perception of what it is possible for us, and our subsequent life-choices.

I am an active member of the Transactional Analysis community and I appreciate what other therapeutic modalities offer to our understanding and practice of psychotherapy, in the service of people who come to us as clients. I am a member of UKATA Ethics and Professional Practice Committee and founding member of the Diversity and Social Responsibility Committee.
