Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)

 
Woman on Window Sill

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based treatment for people who struggle to manage their emotions. DBT combines aspects of mindfulness and cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT). It is skills-based, so you can expect to learn strategies that you practice. Homework is often a part of DBT!

DBT was developed by Marsha Linehan to treat people with chronic suicidal ideation and self-harm who often have a diagnosis of borderline personality disorder. Since then it has been shown to be effective with personality disorders, eating disorders, PTSD, anxiety disorders and mood disorders.

If you struggle with any of these issues, or if you have other reasons to think that DBT is right for you, get in touch and our Arnprior and Stittsville therapists will see how they can help. Our therapists have DBT training and love to help people learn how to cope and ultimately make life a little smoother.
