Online Therapy and Counselling in Wolverhampton
Tranceform Psychology have been offering applied psychological counselling, therapy and coaching since 2009. Our online therapy was originally launched in 2011 using Skype although it is only recently that the technology has developed sufficiently to allow meaningful engagement to take place.
Since the Coronavirus outbreak in March 2020 online therapy has become much more popular as it allows clients to consult from any location where they can access a smartphone, laptop or PC.
What Kind of Therapy is Available?
Although in principle any of the wide range of therapy modalities could work using the online therapy method, our own preference is for CBT (evidence-based) type interventions that involve a client carrying out additional ‘work’ and activities in the time in-between sessions – in our case working systematically through a workbook over the course of the therapy programme.
We recommend following our Tranceformental CBT online therapy programme which comprises 10 one hour sessions using Zoom and a recommended workbook.
Tranceformental CBT is also available at our clinical offices in Wombourne near Wolverhampton.
How Much Does Online Therapy Cost?
Online therapy is exactly the same as face-to-face therapy with research suggesting that there is little difference between online therapy and therapy in a clinic, as long as an effective ‘therapy relationship‘ can be established – this is why we recommend the 10 session programme as this relationship is hard to build in just single short sessions.
The Tranceformental CBT online therapy programme costs £795 which we believe represents excellent value for money when comparing to the more recently launched ‘online therapy’ businesses which charge at least £99 for 50 minutes.
If you follow our online therapy version of the Tranceformental CBT programme you will need to purchase your own copy of the recommended workbook used for the course (see below).
How Do I Proceed?
Firstly, get in touch to arange an initial consultation over Zoom (or in person at the clinic) which all clients have prior to deciding to undertake a course of therapy.
This initial session costs £25 for approximately one hour.
Opting for the Tranceformental CBT Programme
If, after your initial consultation, you wish to proceed with our 10 session advanced CBT programme, we’ll e-mail you instructions on how to pay for the course and how to obtain your own copy of the recommended workbook used to support you through the process.
Technical Requirements for Online Therapy Sessions
- We recommend using either a PC, Laptop or Tablet for your online therapy sessions.
- Smartphones can be used but are not the best devices due to the very small screensizes.
- We use a 27″ monitor and HD 720p Camera.
- We also recommend using a headphone and microphone set-up although this is not essential.
- Zoom simply requires you to click our invitation that we send to you via e-mail. Once you click the link you will join the meeting room. You will receive a new invitation for each weekly session to maintain security.
Supporting the Therapeutic Alliance
Research clearly highlights the importance of the ‘therapeutic alliance’ in producing postive therapy outcomes. By using Zoom for online therapy sessions we are able to interact with clients in a meaningful way which positively supports this crucial factor.
Initial Consultations for Online Therapy
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, pre-purchase a course 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 issues 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 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.
Tranceformental CBT is available On-line as well as a one-to-one format in the clinic.
