All About Stress & How To Overcome it with CBT, Therapy & Counselling in Wolverhampton & West Midlands
What is Stress?
Stress is how we describe the feeling that we experience when we are actively coping with challenging situations, either in our personal or business lives.
Stress is NOT an illness, it’s an emotional response although, as with many human emotional experiences, it has become socially defined as a problem.
Technically, it is our reaction to a threat where the threat can be existential, social, personal or financial.
Tranceform also offer help for work related stress and are an official supplier to the West Midlands Black Country NHS Clinical Commissioning Group who contract us for our Thriving at Work course.
We all experience stress in our daily lives and in fact many people believe that they perform more effectively when they are under stress.
However, some people find stress intolerable and when this is the case, our health can start to be affected in a negative way.
Different people are able to tolerate very different levels of Stress and this is probably due to the types of personality that we have, and to the general experiences that we have gone through in our lives, however, anybody CAN learn to manage how we react to any given stressful situation in more productive ways.
The counselling services we offer at Tranceform are specifically aimed at those people who are experiencing significant negative symptoms due to either highly stressful situations, or because of negative thinking patterns.
Signs & Symptoms of Stress

Therapy & Counselling for Stress
We offer a number of different types of therapy and counselling for Stress and stress-related problems.
Choosing the most suitable therapy depends on a number of different considerations including factors such as:
- How long you have had the problem.
- Your personal preferences.
- How your problem is affecting you today.
You can read more about the different types of therapy for Stress on the following links:
Although all therapies use slightly different approaches, the one thing they all have in common is the relationship that is formed between the client and therapist.
Furthermore, research also suggests that therapy relationship may be the most important factor in achieving a good therapy outcome.
Free Initial Consultations for Stress
We offer all prospective clients a FREE initial consultation to discuss your stress prior to commencing any treatment plans.
The consultation is free and lasts around 50 minutes.
During this consultation we will discuss the various therapy 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 any therapy treatments 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.
