CBT is not the only way
'The fact that counselling is included in the NICE depression guideline means that it is supported by evidence of its effectiveness, certainly in the treatment of moderate, as opposed to severe depression. There is also a good deal of other evidence supporting the effectiveness of counselling which isn’t included in NICE guidelines. Additionally, there is evidence that not everyone with depression is helped by CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy). In IAPT services approximately 60% of clients (according to the Glover Report) have not benefited from having CBT, hence the argument for a range of therapies (including counselling) to be made available to clients'. http://www.bacphealthcare.org.uk/faq.php
