Frequently Asked Questions about Therapy

We are often asked about mental health counselling and therapies and how and why they ‘work’, so this page provides some answers to the most common questions we encounter.

If you cand find the answer to a question that you have, then why not drop me an e-mail at paul@tranceformpsychology.com and I’ll try to answer it for you.

How Much Does Therapy Cost?

TranceForm Psychology is a private psychology clinic offering high quality psychological therapies to the private sector throughout the West Midlands.

Tranceform is also an approved NHS supplier providing stress management training programmes to NHS management within the West Midlands Clinical Commissioning Groups.

The Tranceformental CBT course costs £795 and normally involves around ten sessions lasting around an hour.

Counselling sessions are £90 each and are also available at a discounted rate for pre-paid courses.

Because psychological therapy / training is designed to provide a progressive development of knowledge and skills, it is normally spaced over ten weeks.

We offer single session plans for Psychoanalysis as well as extended Analysis courses as well.

Please visit the FEES page for more information.

How Effective is Therapy at TranceForm?

Based on what our clients tell us, and have told us over the last twelve years or so, our work is extremely effective!

Our therapists are highly trained as well as experienced with our clinical director, Dr. Justina Somal holding a PhD in counselling psychology whilst Paul holds both a BSc and MSc in Psychology whilst Joan is a highly qualified Hypnotherapist and BPS approved BSc undergraduate.

We get excellent feedback from our private clients who are very happy with our service.

Is Therapy A Complicated Process To Follow?

Absolutely not.

We specifically avoid the use of complex concepts and language as part of the normal process.

Of course, some people may find some of the ideas contained within the ‘treatment’ ‘difficult’ or ‘challenging’, but the most important thing you need is not ‘intellectual power’, but a strong desire to change and a preparedness to put in 100% effort to achieve your aim.

We can help you to get to grips with your ‘unhelpful’ thinking and cognition that may be creating or supporting your symptoms. By doing so you can progressively beat whatever it is that is problematic.

How Does 'It' Work?
One of the fundamental points they we help you to get to grips with when following a course of therapy or training with us is that there really is no ‘it’; ‘therapy’ doesn’t actually ‘do’ anything to a person at all!

In fact, no form of training or psychological therapy ‘does’ anything to a person, it is ALWAYS ‘what’ a person does that makes a difference to their lives.

This breaks with tradition as a great many therapists out in the community try to ‘sell’ the idea that their particular ‘therapy’ or ‘technique’ in some way ‘changes’ people without them having to make any kind of ‘effort’ at all, and just by ‘experiencing’ their particular technique you will somehow ‘get better’.

So, the answer to the question is that YOU are the person who makes changes by using the tools and techniques that we ‘teach’ you that are embodied in our therapies.

How Much Time Will I Have To Put In?

Psychological change involves your time in two different ways.

If you are following the ranceformental CBT Programme with Paul or Joan, you will spend at least 10 hours at the ‘clinic’ in Wombourne, normally spaced over 10 weekly sessions.

Secondly, you can expect to spend somewhere in the region of 3 – 4 hours reading our workbook each week as well as sometime during each and every day applying the principles you learn within the course.

Therefore you can expect something like 50 hours of session and reading time, plus the time you spend each day carrying out specific ‘mental’ activities.

If this, for example, added up to two hours a day, that might mean over the course of the whole programme that you spend:

Sessions – 10 hours

Reading – 40 hours (4 hours x 10 weeks)

Applying – 140 hours (2 hours x 70 days)

Approximately 190 hours.

If you could almost completely transform your life for the better would this be time YOU would be willing to spend?

What is your waiting list like?
Here at TranceForm we have three therapists available to help you.

In general terms, we can normally fit you in within a week of your initial consultation with us.

This is in stark contrast to the provision of therapy services offered by the NHS which can frequently involve waiting times of many months which is not particularly helpful if your need is rather more immediate!

Are the therapists qualified?

Absolutely yes.

Justina, our clinical services director, is a chartered counselling psychologist with a doctorate.

Paul is a Licensed Thrive Consultant and holds a professional diploma in CBT as well as a Bachelor of Science Honours (BSc) degree and a Masters degree (MSc) in Psychology.

Joan is a qualified Hypnotherapist and Paediatric Hypnotherapist as well as a founder member of the British Brain Working Society. She is also currently an undergraduate studying a BPS approved BSc in Psychology and Counselling.

All therapists are DBS cleared (old CRB).

All therapists are also fully insured with full public liability insurance which can be viewed at the clinic.

Initial Consultations

free initial consultations image - choose your own path

We offer all prospective clients an initial consultation to discuss your problems prior to commencing any treatment plans.

The consultation is free and last around 50 minutes

Why not drop us an e-mail to find out if we can help before arranging your initial assessment or, if you prefer, leave us a message on our Facebook page: facebook.com/tranceformational/ and we’ll get back to you to arrange a mutual date and time.




During this consultation we will discuss the various options that are available to you and make a considered recommendation based on your individual personal circumstances.

Initial consultations are also available as part of our online therapy service.

At TranceForm Psychology we recognise the importance of the therapeutic relationship in helping people to bring about effective change, so its important to be able to ‘meet’ to discuss our change programmes BEFORE proceeding.

Our policy is to help people make a fully balanced & considered decision about undertaking work with us, including both the financial and personal implications.

For most mental health problems we recommend following our 10 session Tranceformental CBT Programme (an advanced version of empirically established cognitive behavioural therapy) to overcome a wide range of mental health and behavioural problems.

CBT is a proven, evidence-based form of mental health counselling for developing a fundamental understanding of the dynamics of your problem, but also for learning new coping skills and strategies for sustainable change over your life.

The full course costs £795 which you can pay for on our fees page.

Tranceformental CBT is available On-line as well as a one-to-one format in the clinic.
