No Bullshit Therapy (NBT)

Home / Support for services / Areas of expertise / No Bullshit Therapy (NBT)

No Bullshit Therapy (NBT) has been developed by The Bouverie Centre over the past decade as a way of engaging people who are reluctant to seek counselling. It is partly derived from the ‘cutting to the chase’ aspect of SST 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
