Our Philosophy

Here at Tranceform Psychology we take a different approach to helping people deal with mental health problems or life limiting beliefs.

Our model for change does not depend on, or subscribe to, the ‘medicalised’ model of ‘mental illness‘ in which common barriers to living a full life are labelled as ‘illnesses’ or ‘disorders’ but rather we start from the point of view that there is nothing physically (biologically) ‘wrong’ with a person apart from ‘unhelpful thinking’ or ‘unhelpful behaviours‘.

This alternative approach to mental health challenges may seem quite controversial but in fact is widely understood and accepted within the general ‘psychological’ modelling and academic fields whilst the more generalised, and highly pathologised, bio-medical model is coming under much more scrutiny and has many critics (see our models of mental health page here).

People may be surprised to learn that ‘psychiatric disorders’, as they have been ‘labelled’, are actually ‘opinions’ that are based on (1) what a person says they are feeling and (2) the opinion of the ‘psychiatrist’.

There are in fact NO medical tests that prove the “brain chemistry imbalance” theory proposed in psychiatry.

A diagnosis of ‘clinical depression’ only requires a person to say that they ‘feel’ or ‘behave’ in a certain way and they can (and most likely will) be ‘labelled’ as having a ‘disease’ of the brain and prescribed the relevant psychiatric drug.

Dr. Thomas Szasz – Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry

Dr. Szasz was a highly eminent psychiatrist who argued the case against ‘pathologisation’ of normal human behaviours for many years.

Our Approach

Because of our standpoint that most human behaviours that have traditionally been classified as ‘mental illnesses’ are really just ‘unhelpful’ thought (unhelpful thinking) or behavioural patterns our ‘therapeutic’ services tend to consider these behaviours as inherently a part of YOU and the way you perceive and react to life due to your core beliefs and the ‘rules for living’ that you adopt as a result of those core beliefs.

By taking this approach we aim to help you to ‘help yourself’ by providing a ‘psycho-educational’ process in which you learn how to recognise and then change these core underlying beliefs and then as a result, experience life differently.

We believe that, for whatever reason, you ‘created’ these unhelpful thought patterns and associated behaviours and so you can ‘un-create’ them as well.

This is no more true than in our delivery of the Tranceformental CBT programme which tackles these ‘mental health problems’ from a fundamentally new direction with the problem situated firmly within yourself.

Free Initial Consultations

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

The consultation is free and lasts around 50 minutes.

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.
