What are the benefits of Counselling?
Many people ask themselves the question: do I need counselling? It’s not always easy to answer this question. On the one hand, you feel stuck. You’ve been struggling and despite your best efforts, you can’t find a way past it. On the other hand, it might not be that serious and you think you need to be more patient and life will improve. Hope for the best and keep doing what you are doing. Right?
Well, maybe. In truth, what do you have to lose? You may be anxious that counselling won’t help and then you’ll be worse off. However, many people do benefit from therapy. It can give you a better understanding of what you are struggling with and why. It can make you feel calmer.
Therapy can reduce feelings of shame and embarrassment. Nearly all of us will or have struggled with our emotions. That is what it means to be human. When you can offer this kindness and self-compassion, your feelings of loneliness and isolation get transformed into feelings of connection and belonging.
Good therapy teaches you how to deal with these issues more effectively. It needs more than just talking. A good counsellor will teach you the relevant coping strategies and techniques to tackle your particular difficulty.
What is the difference between CBT, Counselling & Psychotherapy?
It can be a bit tricky getting your head around the differences between counselling, CBT and psychotherapy.
Here is a quick and simple run down of the main points.
- CBT stands for Cognitive Behavioural Therapies. Cognition is just a fancy word for thought. And behavioural is in the term, because its all about how your thinking impacts your behaviours. This is important, because whilst your thoughts can be a source of laughter, creativity and connection, they can also take you to dark places. The way one thinks is instrumental to the process of suffering or its opposite; well-being.
- Counselling does pay attention to what you are thinking and feeling as well. The big difference is that CBT teaches you specific strategies and techniques that are chosen depending on the nature of your difficulty. When a CBT therapists meets you for a consultation, they complete an assessment and start to develop something called a formulation. This formulation describes what you are struggling with, why it started and what is keeping it going. This is different to a diagnosis, more commonly used in physical health. The ‘big-benefit’ of CBT is that it you can learn techniques that are going to be more effective, because they come from a very individual account of your difficulties. They are chosen to suit you rather than you and your problem being made to fit a general and broad category that doesn’t recognise how you and Mr Banks down the road are different.
- Psychotherapy is a broad term used to cover a number of different approaches. Counselling is based on specific relationship and conversational skills, but doesn’t has what is called a ‘model’. A model is made up of a theory of human beings, their minds and their behaviour. This theory then contains various methods to help people make changes in their lives. All psychotherapy models use ‘formulations’ to help a person, which is one of their strengths. However, some therapies have been shown to be effective than others for certain types of problem.
