The concept most characteristic of REBT, is the A-B-C framework. The emotional and behavioural consequences (C) of an activating event (A) is mediated by the beliefs (B) that the client has of the event. Hence, disputing (D) these irrational beliefs would cause an effect (E) leading to new feelings (F) and behaviours. Choice theory and “total behaviour” is at the heart of Reality therapy. “Total behaviour” is made up of an individual’s acting, thinking, feeling and physiology.
It means that behavior therapy involves control and social influence by the therapist.For example, some clients will meet the problem with a confrontational style. Indeed, a therapist can be verbal, soft-spoken and moderate and when using REBT concepts and methods. Ann (Vernon., 2007)encourages practitioners to recognize that they can adhere to the basic principles of REBT, which have been effectively used with both adults and children. Janet Wolfe, who has supervised hundreds of practitioners in her 30 years at the Albert Ellis Institute, makes the point that therapists do not need to replicate Ellis’s style to effectively incorporate REBT into their own repertoire of interventions.

But it is very hard to choose and to change a person’s emotions directly. It is easier to change his or her thinking and behavior. So Reality Therapists approach changing “what a person does” as a key to changing how a person feels and to get his or her wants. Further, while traditional psychoanalytic and counseling often focuses on past events, Reality Therapy solutions lie in the present and the future events. The therapist asks the client to make a value judgment about his or her current behavior which presumably is not
In the person centred approach the client is the expert about themselves. The client is also the decision maker and the client has the right not to change. The practitioner needs to demonstrate that they understand the clients view point by using reflective listening skills. The guidelines concluded that the evidence does not support any one particular model for behaviour change but that generic competencies and skills should be employed in any given intervention. The intervention needs to take into account the physical, psychological and social context which the client finds themselves in.
One of the weaknesses that could be identified is that it disregards the importance of feelings and emotions in the counseling process. For this aspect, we believed that if one’s feeling could not be identified and change to match with their new behaviors, that client will soon resume to the original behavior. Generally, behavior therapy lays their therapy based on the directly observable behavior. In another words, it implies that behavior therapy considered as action-based therapy, as most of the techniques used in this therapy are usually practical. For example, operant conditioning techniques stressed that in order to change or stop one’s behaviors, therapists should either give them reinforcement (positive/negative) or punishment (positive/negative).

They can teach their clients how to deal with the things they are always telling themselves so that they can be able to stop believing them, and they help them to acquire a philosophy that is based on reality. Rational emotive behaviour therapy relies a lot on the clients’ thoughts, disputes, debates, challenges, explanations, and
TMA 01 It is extremely difficult to isolate one's values and sense of self in counselling as it is a part of human nature, however, sterile counseling may occur if the counsellor lacks ample understanding in his role in the relationship and merely become technical experts for the client. Psychoanalytic therapy and Person Centered Therapy are two therapies that promote the self awareness of the client which results in empowering the client to improve their lives. For both therapies, the approach and method to desired outcome are distinctive as each of them are heavily influenced by different sets of values and perceptions. Psychoanalytic theory is founded by Freud who views human nature as deterministic, as he believes our behavior
The lastly, it is insurmountable to achieve the goals of group counseling, if the therapist is not able to address cultural diversity in the group. The role of the therapist is to understand the values and culture of the client. Further, developing the environment in the group where they can learn how to shape their behaviour according to the norms of the group and society.

With depression, the employees tend to think of the worst case scenario, leading to unhealthy ways reactions to situations. Plymouth State University notes that counselling helps the employees to make better decisions, as the counselling teaches the patient how to deal with problems in a healthy way. For example, if the employee hurts herself in response to a disappointment, such as a poor grade, the therapist will teach the employee a safer way of dealing with that situation, such as doing breathing exercise. This skill can help the employee increase their self-confidence and work through problems. 6.
