CFD is an integrated, time limited approach comprising of Person Centred and Emotion Focused therapy.
Counselling tends to see depression as primarily as an emotional problem. Being overly critical of ourselves, feeling we are worthless and being left with unresolved feelings from difficult relationships can make us feel low and depressed.
Counselling aims to help people get in touch with the feelings underlying their depression, to express these, make sense of them and develop new ways of looking at themselves and the world around them. This is achieved by counsellors focusing on how you feel and understanding your situation from your point of view. The counsellor is not there to tell you what to do but to help you to explore what you wish to talk about in a thoughtful and understanding manner.
