Don't let BPD hold you back

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) skills training is a game-changer for individuals struggling with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). By participating in this evidence-based group counselling program, you will gain practical and transformative tools to navigate intense emotions, impulsivity, and unstable relationships. 

Emotional Regulation

Learn to recognize and cope with intense emotional experiences, manage the thoughts their minds generate, and resolve challenging situations.

Interpersonal Skills

Learn to enhance communication skills and to express your desires, articulate, needs, and politely refuse undesired requests in a manner that empowers you while respecting others.

Mindful Awareness

Mindfulness allows individuals to better observe themselves and their surroundings, providing the space needed to make informed decisions about their lives rather than merely reacting.

Distress Tolerance

Learn to manage intense emotions that could lead to harmful behaviours such as self-harm, substance abuse, violence, or suicidal thoughts.

These skills empower participants to develop emotional resilience, foster healthier connections, and improve overall quality of life. Don’t let BPD hold you back — embrace the life-changing benefits of DBT skills training and embark on a journey towards lasting personal growth and emotional well-being.

We're not telling you it is going to be easy. We are telling you it is going to be worth it.

Jane's Story

Read about Jane’s experiences – an individual with Borderline Personality Disorder – who has undergone comprehensive DBT skills training, and how it has positively impacted her life.

I first learned about DBT from my psychiatrist after being diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. She recommended it as a well-established treatment for BPD, and I was desperate for something that could help me regain control over my emotions and relationships.

DBT skills training has been a life-changing experience for me. It's a group-based program, where we learn and practice various skills in four main modules: mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness. The sessions are structured, and we're encouraged to practice the skills outside of the group as well.

Mindfulness and emotion regulation have been the most transformative skills for me. Mindfulness helps me become more aware of my thoughts and feelings, and this awareness allows me to better manage my emotions. Emotion regulation skills, like opposite action and checking the facts, have given me tools to challenge my intense emotions and act in healthier ways.

DBT has significantly improved my relationships. The interpersonal effectiveness module helped me learn how to communicate more effectively, set boundaries, and assert my needs without damaging relationships. I've become more understanding and empathetic towards others, and my relationships have become more stable and fulfilling as a result.

Sure! I was in a situation where I felt rejected by a close friend, which would have previously led me to react impulsively and potentially harm the relationship. Instead, I used mindfulness to observe my thoughts and emotions without judgment. I then applied emotion regulation skills to challenge my initial interpretation and found that I had misunderstood the situation. This helped me respond in a more balanced way and maintain the friendship.

I would highly recommend DBT skills training to anyone struggling with BPD. It requires commitment and practice, but the benefits are worth it. Don't expect immediate results; be patient with yourself and trust the process. The skills you learn will become invaluable tools in managing your emotions and improving your relationships.

Jane’s real name was changed to prevent accidental identification.
