I've always kind of felt like therapies are a way to learn how to cope with anxiety. Or fear, or change.
It's teaching how to cope and how to learn from your sadness /anxiety etc.
It's to help you learn to think, and to try.
Not because you don't know how to think or try, but that you can't relay that effectively to someone who doesn't understand how you are thinking, or what you are trying.
So in therapies you learn to cross that bridge- but the therapies are as much for one understanding as the next.
