"While traditional psychotherapy utilizes theories and skills that focus on eliciting change, Transformation Therapy uses theories and skills that elicit transformation. Whats the difference between change and transformation? Change is a difficult task to accomplish. What do I mean by this? Take for example that old saying "When life hands you lemons turn them into lemonade". We cannot change the fact that life has handed us a lemon specifically, as we cannot change the make-up of the actual lemon. However we can transform the lemon through creation- into sweet and delicious lemonade!"
