This evidence based form of therapy was adapted from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and developed to treat Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). However, DBT has also proven effective in treating a large host of other mental health concerns — including Attention-Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), bipolar disorder, eating disorders, non-suicidal self harm as well as suicidal behaviours, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), etc. Through DBT you will learn how to effectively cope with stress, regulate your emotions, and improve both your communication and relationships with others.
While DBT is often offered through a blend of individual and group sessions, at this time our practice is focusing on individual session offerings as this has been the preferred method for our clients and also allows us to meet the changing requirements of the COVID-19 pandemic.
