About Me

I am a Certified Transactional Analyst psychotherapist, supervisor and trainer from the UK, and a qualified mental health nurse, with 20 years experience working with individuals, couples and groups both in private practice and within the public health sector (NHS) and primary care service. Whilst I have worked extensively with clients experiencing a wide range of emotional difficulties, I have specialised in working with issues such as eating disorders, self harm and the effects of childhood sexual abuse.

Adena Franses

Since moving to Granada in 2001, I have established a psychotherapy and counselling practice, working with individuals, couples and groups. I also offer clinical supervision to qualified and trainee psychotherapists and counsellors.

I have been a visiting trainer at a number of UK psychotherapy training organisations and, in 2004, I established and taught a four year psychotherapy training programme in Granada.

I am an examiner for the Certified Transactional Analysis clinical examinations and have chaired and supervised exam boards in many European countries.

Certified Transactional Analyst (CTA) is a universally recognised professional psychotherapy qualification which entitles those qualified to be included in national and international psychotherapy registers in Europe and throughout the world.

I am a registered member of the following professional and International Organisations and adhere to their codes of ethics:

The European Association of Transactional Analysis (EATA)

The European Association of Psychotherapy (EAP)

The Asociación de Análisis Transaccional (ATA)

The International Association for Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy (IARPP)
