Anxiety Treatment Options at Tranceform Psychology Wolverhampton
The Anxiety treatment offered here at Tranceform Psychology in Wombourne will normally involve following a programme of one of our evidence-based interventions which are specifically designed to help you make fundamental changes to your unhelpful thinking styles, habitual responses or other behavioural traits associated with anxiety or anxiety-related issues.
Beliefs, Rules for Living & Behaviours
The anxiety ‘response’ is a perfectly normal (and logical) way of preparing the body to cope with danger or the threat of danger. In this sense, Anxiety in itself is rarely problematic. It becomes a problem when the trigger situation is a ‘distorted’ belief – for example; ‘being thought of negatively by other people’ is ‘really bad’ and therefore dangerous and therefore ’causes’ the feeling of anxiety.
In this case it should be clear that it is not anxiety that is the actual problem, but the ‘belief’ that negative judgement is somehow ‘bad’.
A more useful model for thinking about psychological problems such as ‘anxiety’ is shown below. Here we can see that ‘Actions’ (what we actually do – or how we behave, in our example ‘feel anxious’) are dictated by the underlying set of ‘strategies’ that are called ‘rules for living’. These rules for living, in turn, are determined by the more fundamental underlying ‘core beliefs & values’.
This model suggests that the most effective way of overcoming anxiety disorders is by changing the core underlying beliefs and values that create the rules and behaviours associated with the problem. In this way, the problem is dealt with using a cause & effect philosophy.
Anxiety Treatment Options
We are able to offer five main Anxiety treatment options, each using a slightly different approach, but all designed to work down to the core beliefs that often ‘prop-up’ the problem!
- CBT for Anxiety
- Counselling for Anxiety
- BWRT for Anxiety
- EMDR for Anxiety
- Analytical Therapy for Anxiety
Each different Anxiety treatment approach uses a distinct philosophical framework which is often tailored to the individual who is consulting with the problem rather than one approach being any ‘better’ than the other.

Free Initial Consultations for Anxiety Treatment
The consultation is free and lasts around 50 minutes.
During this consultation we will discuss the various types of psychological therapy 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 counselling service.
At Tranceform Psychology we emphasise the importance of the therapy 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 mental health work with us, including both the financial and personal implications.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy 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.
