Scientific Minds

We all have scientific minds

Whether you recognise it or not, your mind takes a scientific approach to generating and maintaining ‘hypotheses’ all of the time.

All of our beliefs, values and perceptual models that we ‘use’ to ‘make sense’ of the ‘world around us’ are constructed, over our lifetimes, on the basis of ‘evidence’ or ‘dis-confirmation’ (evidence that points to a contrary view).

These principles of devising models of reality are NOT created simply on a ‘whim’ but through this highly ‘scientific’ process.

If we experience pain, for example. when touching a hot object, we will classify that experience as ‘negative’ and to be ‘avoided’ if encountered again in the future. This is an example of using evidence to create a ‘pattern of behaviour’ (avoiding hot objects) that is clearly based on ‘logic’.

Beyond these sensory belief systems, we also generate hypotheses in relation to our social understanding of the world around us.

If, for example, everytime we make a mistake, we are lablled as ‘stupid’ by others (and particularly those others whose opinions we think are more valid than others such as our parents) then we might end up concluding that making mistakes is a really terrible thing to do, and on that basis, devise strategies to avoid making mistakes at all.

Whilst this might seem ‘logical’ to many readers, making mistakes is firstly a completely normal human trait and secondly the only way to actually learn anything more effective.

Ultimately, this avoidance strategy (based on the evidence you have) is probably going to end up being a significant problem at some point in the future.

In these cases, the science has gone ‘wrong’!

Exploring Distorted Hypotheses

As a therapeutic process, CBT encourages people to explore their belief systems along with the CBT practitioner so that any distorted beliegs can be uncovered and then changed.

This is most frequently achieved through collecting new evidence that allows the old hypothetical models to be modified.

Initial Consultations

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, leave us a message on our Facebook page: facebook.com/tranceformational/ 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 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.
