Doing the right thing
at the right time
Over the last 6-7 years of TA training with Suriya, I have personally and professionally grown. The shifts that have happened in both my personal and professional life has a lot to do with my training and the supervision experience. His teaching, facilitation, coaching, supervision style has been the most subtle yet very powerful insights that helped me reflect and understand TA better. He has also made time for me whenever I have needed help, when I am stuck at work and created a space for me to reflect. What was the standout for me in the training is the ecosystem that he has created with the peer group, materials etc which helped me transition into becoming a more rounded professional today.

I’ve known Suriya for close to nine years now. What comes to mind when I think about him is his empathy. His ability to connect, interact, and relate to the person or people on the other side is praiseworthy. Anyone would wish that if they were learning a new subject, they should learn from the best. And I feel so lucky that I got the opportunity to learn about TA and its application from Suriya, who is both my coach and supervisor. While his knowledge of the subject is deep, his skills in processing supervision and coaching issues have often kept us in awe. The way he helps the supervisor process the problem at hand, cut the noise from the signal, catch the key issues, bring clarity, and make the supervisor own the actions is as engaging as reading through the detective novel. With Suriya, it is not just about TA; because of the energy that he brings in, I have always gotten much more than the expectations that I would have from a coach or a supervisor. I can only wish Suriya the best in all his endeavours.
Suriya is my guru, a teacher who removes the darkness and brings in light. I have been Suriya’s trainee for the last 6 years, and I owe a great part of my transformation from a ‘most feared manager’ to the ‘most accepted leader’ to him. He is very powerful and, at the same time, calm. Many times, I have just sat there and heard him, and I have realized that I could gather several pearls of practical and realistic wisdom. Suriya is very powerful at bringing about transformations. He has a wide-angle lens to help navigate through individuals, organizations, and systems from a systemic perspective. I would highly recommend Suriya for organizational interventions, 1-1 and group coaching and, needless to say, to learn and dive deep into transactional analysis.

When I’m in training, coaching, or supervision led by Suriya, I know I will make a significant movement towards a better version of myself. His vast and deep knowledge, humanistic approach, and seamless dancing between the big picture and the details create an enriching experience for learners. He understands me as a whole person and energizes me with exactly what I need in a way that helps me. I’m lucky to have the opportunity to journey with him.
Suriya is a great mentor and guide. The aura he brings in with his composure and calm presence is fascinating, and the space I always cherish His simulating questions during supervision have helped in exploring new possibilities and tapping blind spots. His training sessions are a beautiful blend of literature, practical application, and case studies. It is a great experience to be associated with him.
