Fibromyalgia Counselling Wolverhampton
Psychological Therapy for Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia is frequently associated with depression, anxiety, and post traumatic stress disorder.
The cause of fibromyalgia is unknown; however, it is believed to involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors with half the risk attributed to each. Environmental factors may include psychological stress, trauma, and certain infections.
The pain appears to result from processes in the central nervous system and the condition is referred to as a “central sensitization syndrome”. Diagnosis involves first ruling out other potential causes and verifying that a set number of symptoms are present and so we always recommend that sufferers consult their GP before seeking any kind of psychological support.
Recommendations for the treatment of fibromyalgia often include getting enough sleep, exercising regularly, and eating a healthy diet. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy may also be helpful.
Fibromyalgia is estimated to affect 2–8% of the population. Females are affected about twice as often as males. There is controversy about the classification, diagnosis, and treatment of fibromyalgia. While some feel the diagnosis of fibromyalgia may negatively affect a person, other research finds it to be beneficial.
Transform Your Thinking & Overcome Fibromyalgia
If you’re committed to overcoming your fibromyalgia 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.

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 & coaching 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 therapy 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.
