Perceptual Constructivism

We all create a unique view of the world

As humans we tend to make the assumption that the ‘way the World works’ is the same for everybody – that our model of the world is experienced in the same way for all people living on the planet.

This is not actually true but is, in fact, JUST the way that we think it works!

During our early developmental years our brains are bombarded with millions of bits of sensory information, light, sound, smells, physical sensations from touch and so on. There is so much information available that we need to develop filters in order to pick-out the useful information from the ‘not-so important’ information otherwise we would be overwhelmed with far too much processing.

In fact our senses have evolved biologically to pay more attention to those sensory signals that represent a ‘change’ of stimulus rather than stimuli that remain ‘constant’ – this is called sensory or neural adaptation and explains why you spend very little processing time considering the pressure on your backside (caused by the pressure sensors in your skin registering the pressure exerted on them in the act of sitting down) as you sit on a seat reading this page.

Our brains then start to attribute ‘meaning’ to this sensory information and it is these meanings that we then use to construct the rules about the ‘world we inhabit’. In most cases the meanings that we use to construct our model of the World are socially constructed rather than merely interpreted by us developing our own ‘theories’.

At Tranceform we tend to refer to these socially constructed theories as ‘learned behaviours’ as they will frequently resemble the beliefs our parents had, and encouraged us to believe as well – for example ‘you must respect your elders’.

Free Initial Consultations

free initial consultations image - choose your own path

We offer all prospective clients an initial consultation to discuss your mental health problems prior to commencing any counselling.

The consultation is free and last 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.

For most mental health problems we recommend following our 10 session Tranceformental CBT Programme to overcome a wide range of mental health and behavioural problems.

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.

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.
