The Present Perfect Continuous often focuses on the continuing situation or action. The Present Perfect Simple usually focuses on the completion or the result of the action.

I’ve been teaching for ten years - focus on the action of teaching.

The Present Perfect Simple is the preferred tense when we talk about permanent situations or situations which last a long time.

I’ve been working for my company for nearly two months.

I’ve worked for the government all my life. 

We also use the Present Perfect Simple to say how often something has happened. 

I’ve been to Barcelona twice this year.

I’ve been going to the cinema a lot recently. - focus on the action of going.

be, know, have (when the meaning is ‘possess’), understand, want, need, prefer, hate, love, like, hear, see, believe, suppose, seem, forget, remember, mean, realise, belong, think (when the meaning is ‘believe’).
