Dialectical Behavioural Therapy
Dialectical Behavioural Therapy is a form of a CBT adapted for people who experience emotions very intensely.
During the sessions I will be able to help you recognise your strengths and develop and use them. You will learn to analyse your problems or destructive behaviour patterns and replace them with healthy and effective ones. You will learn strategies to accept and tolerate your life, emotions, and yourself. You will also learn to communicate effectively and work with others around you.
A full course of DBT takes approximately 6 months to complete.
There are four main modules in DBT, mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. There is an additional module for children and young people: walking the middle path. This module is completed with parent/guardian.
Sessions are usually held in weekly intervals and you might expect to spend roughly 6 sessions on each module. Sessions usually take 50- 55 mins.
DBT might be an effective treatment for:
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
