This is not Dialectical Behavioural Therapy but is a skills-based group. If your mental health worker thinks that you would benefit from DB Therapy, then they should be able to provide this through your Community Mental Health Team.

This is a peer led course that looks at how DBT skills can practically help people who have trouble understanding and managing overwhelming emotions. This course is suitable for people with recognized personality difficulties or those people who struggle with the following:

  • Intense negative emotions
  • Impulsive behaviours
  • Feelings of emptiness
  • Mood swings
  • Wanting to hurt yourself
  • Regularly finding yourself in unhealthy relationships

Shared experience, validation, mindfulness and distress tolerance exercises will form a basis for every session.
