A Better Way of Coping with Depression

coping with depression at tranceform psychology wolverhampton

Depression or depressive thoughts and feelings can happen to anybody at any time. The psychiatric model of depression suggests that people experiencing these types of thoughts and feelings are suffering a ‘medical illness’ that is totally beyond their control and that the solution to the ‘problem’ is obtained through the application of pharmaceutical drugs that ‘correct’ the chemical imbalances in the persons brain.

You may be surprised to know that although widely disseminated within our society as ‘fact’ that this is neither ‘true’ or particularly useful. The psychiatric diagnosis of depression is actually based on an opinion rather than on biological science. There is no actual biological test for depression, just an opinion based on the behaviours the sufferer describes to the doctor/psychiatrist.

The latest research into the efficacy of anti-depressants (not carried out by the drug companies) suggest that they are only ‘marginally’ more effective than placebos and even this ‘marginal’ difference is a statistical difference with clinical significance falling below the criteria (3 points on the depression scale) allowing the conclusion to be reached that they really work (Scientific American).

A New Approach to Coping with Depression

We believe that the best and most sustainable way of coping with depression is to learn how to manage the unhelpful thinking associated with feeling this way. Evidence clearly demonstrates that depression responds very well to ‘talking’ interventions and we offer a highly developed programme that tackles mental health issues from a completely new paradigm – that we can learn how to make fundamental changes to our core beliefs which reduces the production of depressive thinking at the deepest level.

This is what is focused on whilst following our CBT programme.

Transform Your Thinking & Start Coping with Depression

If you’re committed to coping with depression then we highly recommend following either our Advanced Cognitive Behavioural Therapy course with Paul, or the Changing Limiting Beliefs (CLB) Programme with Joan.

Both the CBT course and Changing Limiting Beliefs approach are highly successful & pragmatic psychological training programmes, run over 10 sessions, that will teach you everything you need to know to understand your problem, identify how unhelpful thinking and limiting beliefs might be reinforcing the issue, and then show you how to make any changes to your unhelpful thinking styles or maladaptive safety behaviours that you may have developed as part of your coping strategies.

Our CBT programme is an evidence-based, research supported approach used by mental health practitioners around the World.

FREE Initial Consultations

We offer all prospective clients a FREE initial assessment to chat about coping with depression. During this 50 minute consultation we will discuss the various options that are available to you and make a considered recommendation based on your individual personal circumstances.

At TranceForm we believe that therapy & counselling should be a collaboration between therapist and client so it’s very important to be able to meet PRIOR to agreeing any kind of help. 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 issues we recommend following our 10 session Tranceformental CBT Programme (an advanced version of conventional Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) to overcome a wide range of mental health and behavioural problems.

CBT is a proven form of therapy for developing a fundamental level of understanding into 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 - don't forget we offer a FREE initial consultation to all prospective clients.

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