What’s the difference between CBT and counselling?
Both CBT and counselling are used to support people with similar issues like anxiety and depression. And they’re both forms of talking therapy and can be used for short term work.
CBT is a very proactive approach to therapy, focusing on making changes to thoughts and behaviours that are contributing to your distress. Your therapist will work with you to produce a visual diagram illustrating what is keeping you stuck within your difficulties. This might look at your past experiences to help make sense of your current patterns, but the focus remains on making changes in the here and now. This diagram will become your map for treatment. Therapy will likely incorporate a combination of ‘talking and doing’. We try to make our sessions as creative and interactive as possible.
Counselling is less directive and through listening, empathy, encouragement and challenge counselling hopes to help the client to better understand themselves and find their own solutions to cope with the issues that face them.
Arguably someone could equally benefit from being supported by both interventions at different times in their times. CBT has been shown to work for a variety of mental health problems. This doesn't mean it's better than other therapies, however the evidence base is more robust for CBT.
