‘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.’
