‘DBT has been a life changing experience for me. When I was in a crisis, I first met Darryl who invited me to join his group. I didn’t believe that any therapy would ever help me, but I was wrong. I have been participating for almost two years and I am now medication free, because I have the skills to help me with everyday life. I have more energy and I am so much happier than I ever thought I could be.
My advice to anyone thinking about joining would be stick at it, no matter what thoughts you have, work extremely hard – if you do these skills, they will become second nature.’

‘DBT has enabled me to live a life I never thought possible. I have the skills I need to regulate my emotions when in distress and day to day. I no longer engage in dangerous behaviours and have been able to maintain and grow new relationships.

Anyone who suffers with suicidal thoughts or self-harm would benefit from this therapy and I am so glad I am no longer a slave to my urges and inability to cope. I now work full time and look after my family something which I never saw happening. I have self esteem and confidence and am achieving things personally and professionally that once seemed impossible.’

‘He has made tremendous progress although it is still early days of course and I would like to thank you for the wonderful program you have established and for finding him a therapist as qualified as Jackie so quickly when we first reached out to you last December when he was doing so poorly and we were so worried about him.
Jackie’s guidance and extensive knowledge and expertise have been life changing for him as well as the tools and strategies your program has taught him which he has been and will continue hopefully to diligently practice to help him self regulate and navigate life and its many challenges.
We will of course continue to support him as best we can going forward. He is committed to his healing journey and very grateful for the excellent therapeutic support you have provided him.
I will highly recommend your programme to others.’
