My oldT used eclectic approach.

When I first started with him, I was in crisis. Severe depression and unrelenting suicidal ideation.

He said we'll just take it easy for a while and then the real work can begin.

So, he let me talk and cry and whine, and sit in uncomfortable silence, and helped me figure out which thoughts were "the big D" and which thoughts were authentic.

We never did any of the strictly regimented CBT work with homework assignments and such. Mainly we tried to figure out the extent to which my distorted thoughts about the world and my psyche were causing me distress. Then we would discuss how to replace the distorted thoughts with more accurate thoughts. It was hard. I resisted, of course.

maybe you need more supportive counselling if you are still adjusting to med changes and in an uncomfortable situation right now.
