Start Psychology's Groups

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy Skills Group (Adult)

Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) is a modified type of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Its main goals are to teach people how to live in the moment, develop healthy ways to cope with stress, regulate their emotions, and improve their relationships with others. DBT was originally intended to treat borderline personality disorder (BPD), but it has been adapted to treat other mental health conditions. It can help people who have difficulty with emotional regulation or are exhibiting self-destructive behaviours. 10 week modules open to anyone receiving individual therapy at Start Psychology and aged 18 or older.
