Become a TIFF Provider

Become a TIFF Provider

Prospective TIFF Providers undertake a thorough and flexible training process to become licensed to use TIFF as part of their professional practice. The training is itself a valuable CPD process for participants; an opportunity for personal and professional reflection.

In addition to their respective qualifications as professionals in their own field, participants complete appropriate study of transactional analysis, demonstrate proficiency in counselling skills and meet the TIFF Licensing Criteria.

TIFF licensing criteria

To become a TIFF Provider, licensed to use TIFF professionally, practitioners need to be well prepared so that they understand fully how the TIFF instrument works, what its potential is and how to make best use of it on behalf of their clients or staff members.

The TIFF Licensing Process

Training takes place in open or in-house groups of between five and ten people over a period of two to four months. The personal contact of group support and challenge is a key part of the training. The process consists of a variety of activities including:

  • Completion of TIFF with individual feedback and ongoing use of the experience as part of the group work.
  • Input in the form of workshops, seminars and tutorials.
  • Using TIFF with “practice clients”.
  • Supervision to prepare for delivering TIFF and for debriefing.
  • Case studies, experiential exercises and discussion.

These activities form ten elements of study organised into five modules or 'stages'. There is some flexibility in the timing and organisation of the elements to suit particular groups or individuals. A TIFF Licence is granted at the discretion of the Course Leader(s), in consultation with The Director for Professional Practice of The Fluent Self CIC, when the Criteria have been suitably met by the individual.
