What is DBT?
Dialectical Behaviour Therapy is a weekly programme of individual therapy and skills classes for people who experience difficulties in regulating emotions, including those diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD) or traits.
There is no specific diagnostic requirement for participation in the programme. But if intense emotions, unmanageable distress or problematic behaviours interfere with your ability to be an effective human being, perhaps in your personal or professional relationships, DBT might be just what’s needed.
It will assist you in coping effectively with self-harm, extreme emotional sensitivity, mood swings, ADHD, eating difficulties, anger, depression, anxiety, intense relationships, impulsivity, and ultimately in building a fruitful, satisfying life.
