Psychology in Wolverhampton
What is Psychology & How Does It Help?
Psychology is the science of the mind and associated behaviours and includes Social Psychology, the science of human social interaction.
Here at TranceForm Psychology we take a very humanistic approach and recognise that human beings are complex creatures with complex minds and, as such, are capable of both excelling in life as well as being more than capable of creating highly sophisticated thinking patterns that can sometimes lead to very real problems.
We do not subscribe to the psychiatric model that suggests that most ‘life problems’ are caused by some sort of ‘chemical imbalance’ in the brain that can only be ‘corrected’ by the use of pharmaceutical drugs. The problem with this model is that is explicitly suggests that these types of problems have nothing to do with either the way a person ‘thinks’ or the ‘social conditioning’ they have experienced and is somehow located ‘outside’ of the person. If this ‘brain disorder’ model is considered to be ‘accurate’ then no amount of changing a person’s thinking is ever likely going to bring about a reduction in that symptomology.
Of course, if a person does want to subscribe to the ‘psychiatric model’ then they are, of course, 100% entitled to do so, however, one only has to look at the exponential growth in mental health problems within our society in recent times to reasonably conclude that this approach appears to be less than wholly successful.
We believe, almost exclusively, that a person’s ‘limiting beliefs‘ are the most important factors in determining whether or not they are able to overcome psychologically based problems or not and so our therapeutic focus is grounded in this approach.
Transform Your Thinking with Applied Psychology Principles
If you’re committed to overcoming your psychological problems then we highly recommend following either our Advanced Cognitive Behavioural Therapy course with Paul, or the Changing Limiting Beliefs (CLB) Programme with Joan.
Both the CBT course and Changing Limiting Beliefs approach are highly successful & pragmatic psychological training programmes, run over 10 sessions, that will teach you everything you need to know to understand your problem, identify how unhelpful thinking and limiting beliefs might be reinforcing the issue, and then show you how to make any changes to your unhelpful thinking styles or maladaptive safety behaviours that you may have developed as part of your coping strategies.
Our CBT programme is an evidence-based, research supported approach used by mental health practitioners around the World.
FREE Initial Consultations
We offer all prospective clients a FREE initial assessment to chat about how applied psychology might benefit you in overcoming your problems.
During this 50 minute consultation we will discuss the various options that are available to you and make a considered recommendation based on your individual personal circumstances.
At TranceForm we believe that therapy & coaching should be a collaboration between therapist and client so it’s very important to be able to meet PRIOR to agreeing any kind of help. Our policy is to help people make a fully balanced & considered decision about undertaking therapy 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 conventional Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) to overcome a wide range of mental health and behavioural problems.
CBT is a proven 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.
