Do You Have a Mental Health Problem?
How do you know if you’ve even got a mental health problem in the first place?
Most people have a pretty good sense of how they feel and if there is something wrong, but there are also five reasonably good indicators that you are experiencing some sort of mental issue.
- Feeling anxious and worrying a lot
- Prolonged sadness & irritability
- Signifcant changes in your mood
- Withdrawing from social activity
- Changes in eating or sleeping patterns
If you’re experiencing any or all of these then why not get in touch to arrange a free initial consultation at out clinic or online.
You can also take one of the standard Anxiety or Depression quizzes used throughout the NHS.

Types of Mental Health Counselling We Offer
What actually is Mental Health Counselling
Mental Health Counselling is a relational act created by two (or more) people engaged in a conversation that leads to change.
Scientific research suggests that one of the most important aspects of a ‘successful therapy’ is determined by the Therapy Relationship rather than the ‘type’ of therapy itself.
Furthermore a full 30% of the outcome of mental health counselling is determined by the client themselves, making it the most significant factor within the whole process.
Here at Tranceform we focus much of our attention on building a therapeutic relationship and helping our clients to develop and utilise their own skills and resources.
But of course, no two people respond in the same way during the mental health counselling process so we offer a range of different approaches each designed to work with clients in slightly different ways.
Free Initial Assessments
Before opting for mental health counselling all prospective clients should arrange an initial assessment to discuss your issues.
The initial assessment is FREE and lasts approximately 50 minutes. Be aware that this is an informal meeting and does not constitute a diagnosis.
The therapists at Tranceform do not offer psychiatric diagnoses and so anybody seeking to be formally diagnosed should seek the help of their own medical practitioner.
During this initial assessment we will consider which approach may be most suitable for you and make a considered recommendation based on your individual personal circumstances.
At Tranceform we recognise that psychology & counselling is a collaboration between therapist and client so it’s very important to be able to meet (either face-to-face or online) PRIOR to agreeing any kind of help.
Our policy is to help people make a fully balanced & considered decision about undertaking therapy with us, including both the financial and personal implications.
