Online (DBT) Dialectical Behaviour Therapy
Who Is Dialectical Behaviour Therapy For?
Our online Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) is an effective treatment for the following conditions:
- Anxiety Disorders
- Eating Disorders
- Self Harm
- Problems associated with Borderline Personality Disorder
DBT is also effective in a range of other mental health conditions that put your personal safety, work prospects, emotional wellbeing, and personal relationships under threat.
What is DBT?
DBT is based on the same theoretical basis as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). It’s a talking therapy but more suited to those of us who experience their emotions with overwhelming intensity.
DBT teaches you a range of skills that help you to draw your thoughts and feelings into the present moment. This helps you to cope with stress and regulate your emotional responses; in turn, helping you improve your personal relationships.
For those of us who experience a prolonged period of instability in mood, thinking, self-image, relationships, and behaviour, our online dialectical behavioural therapy could be right for you.
What's involved in a DBT session?
DBT is an intensive treatment process which lasts between six months and two years; meeting your therapist once or twice a week. If you have two sessions a week, one will be based on individual therapies while the other will focus on skills training.
Sessions focus on helping you face overwhelming crises, using the skills training to help you deal with your responses. You’ll also explore past situations that went wrong; helping you identify how things went wrong and developing a range of strategies that can help in future, similar situations.
Does DBT work?
DBT has been proven significantly effective in minimising suicidal behaviours, self-harm, anger, depression, and substance abuse.
For people experiencing Borderline Personality Disorder, DBT has become recognised as the Gold Standard treatment.
