No Bullshit Therapy
No Bullshit Therapy (NBT), was developed to engage people who are cynical, suspicious or unsure of what to expect from counselling and therefore reluctant to seek counselling.
It is a model for engaging people who are reluctant to seek counselling. It is partly derived from the ‘cutting to the chase’ aspect of Single Session Therapy and was chosen primarily for its potential relevance for engaging people who are cynical, suspicious or unsure of what to expect from counselling.
NBT aims to create constructive contexts for mutual honesty and directness in working relationships and has four basic clinical guidelines:
- creating contexts for mutual honesty and directness
- marrying honesty and directness with warmth and care
- being upfront about difficulties and constraints to the work
- avoiding jargon.
We also offer a self-paced online course in NBT. Explore what the course has to offer.
