CBT - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
CBT is based on the principle that individuals learn unhelpful ways of thinking and behaving over a long period of time. However, identifying these thoughts and how they can be problematic to feelings and behaviours can enable individuals to challenge negative ways of thinking, leading to positive feelings and behavioural changes. It is possible for the therapy to take place on a one-to-one basis, with family members or even as a group depending on the issue and how the individual feels most comfortable.
CBT can be useful for dealing with issues such as:
  • anger
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • drug or alcohol problems
  • eating disorders
  • obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • phobias
  • post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Sexual and relationship problems
The emphasis on cognitive or behaviour aspects of therapy can vary depending on the issue. For example, the emphasis may be more towards cognitive therapy when treating depression, or the emphasis may be more towards behaviour therapy when treating obsessive compulsive disorder.
CBT is a practical  counselling therapy, which is likely to work best treating a specific issue as it focuses on particular problems and how to overcome them.
CBTcounselling  sessions may consist of a number of activities, including:
  • Coping skills
  • Assessments
  • Relaxation
  • Challenging certain thoughts
  • Thought stopping
  • Homework projects
  • Training in communication

Counselling takes place when a counsellor sees a client in a private and confidential setting to explore a difficulty the client is having, distress they may be experiencing or perhaps their dissatisfaction with life, or loss of a sense of direction and purpose. It is always at the request of the client as no one can properly be sent for counselling.
By listening attentively and patiently the counsellor can begin to perceive the difficulties from the clients point of view and can help them to see things more clearly, possibly from a different perspective. Counselling is a way of enabling choice or change or of reducing confusion.  It does not involve giving advice or directing a client to take a particular course of action. Counsellors do not judge or exploit their clients in any way.
