What you'll learn

Jill’s first webinar: Interpreting Counselling/Psychotherapy Sessions has been one of our most popular to date. Jill is a qualified sign language interpreter and Psychotherapist and returns to provide more insights into this field from both the professional and interpreter’s perspective.

Drawing upon the theory of Transactional Analysis*, this webinar is an opportunity to increase your capacity for self-reflection.  To help you reflect upon those moments when you leave an interpreting assignment and you just don’t know what went wrong.

Jill will explain what psychological Games are, highlight different ways of understanding how Games are played, when we play Games, who we play Games with and what feelings emerge when we play them.

The videos are available with subtitles. 

Learning outcomes:

  • Gain an understanding of Psychological Games and begin to relate this to interpreting assignments.
  • Begin to gain awareness of why Games are played.
  • Gain an awareness of your options if/when finding yourself in a Game.

*Transactional Analysis is a theory of personality, communication and life patterns (how we relate to others).


  • This qualifies for 2 structured points

"Great usable model that can be applied to work and everyday life. Really well presented with lots of clear examples." - Kate, Interpreter

"Jill's presentation style and her openness and honesty made the material very accessible. I liked the way she used examples and anecdotes to bring the theory to life."

"This has really helped me to consider what has been happening.  I often reflect on the dynamics of a session but this has given a 'model' to hinge it on to and will really help me reflect on some of my personal relationships too and the role I play in them. So much food for thought! A big thank you to Jill."
