Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is engaged to better understand your current problems, provide useful strategies along the journey and help you achieve a higher quality of life.
What is the difference between Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)?
Counselling is recommended for adjusting to challenging life circumstances or when the problem is unknown. Many people use CBT when they know what the problem is, and the problem in their life is caused by something that cannot be changed (such as a job loss, or the loss of a loved one) or when they don’t know how they want something to change (such as relationship issues).
Anyone with a personal concern can access Counselling support, who can access a trained, objective professional with whom you can build a therapeutic and trusting relationship.
Counselling is a talk-based therapy, which involves working through your personal problems in a positive way by helping you to clarify the issues, explore options, develop strategies and increase self-awareness. Common issues that people seek counselling for include:
- Grief and loss
- Anger and aggression
- Relationship Issues
- Self esteem and confidence issues
- Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or trauma
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is one of many types of Therapeutic Counselling used to treat and manage problematic thoughts and behaviours.
Undertaken from the perspective that underlying thoughts and attitudes are the primary influences on behaviour, CBT attempts to challenge these feelings and change the way they might influence our actions and habits. Unlike many other therapies, CBT does not rely on medications but instead, examines our thoughts and how they may have developed through prior experiences.
Typically a short-term treatment, CBT can help tremendously where a specific issue causes grief and blocks the ability to perform tasks or live a healthy day-to-day life. These may include:
- Common phobias such as animals, social settings or air travel
- Issues with personal relationships
- Sleeping problems
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder
Cognitive behavioural therapy works by helping the client to identify which thoughts and feelings are causing distress, and developing plans to actively challenge these issues. The aim is to teach the client that while the environment cannot change for you, you can change your view of the environment. With this new perspective, the client shall have the tools and methods to now live a positive and healthy lifestyle.
