What is DBT?

Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) aims to help you regulate your emotions in an effective way. More specifically, it helps individuals who suffer from Borderline Personality Disorder. It was developed by Marsha Linehan (an American psychologist) in the 1990s.

How does therapy work?

In general, therapy lasts for one year. I meet with my client twice a week. One session is an individual one. We go over what happened during the past week. Additionally, we rehearse behaviors that are helpful should difficult situations reoccur in the future. The second meeting is a group session for skills training. Essential tools such as regulating emotions and managing crises are covered in the group skills training.

An important component of DBT is that you can call me should crises occur. This is referred to as phone consultation.

You can feel safe when you know that someone is always there for you.
