The best recognised treatments for BPD is Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). This treatment offers a combination of group and one to one therapy. The group therapy is once a week for 2 1/2 hours. Alongside this you will have an individual session with your therapist once a week. Both will take place in comfortable surroundings at one of our locations in Buckinghamshire.
The DBT group work is focused on skills training. There are four modules comprising of Core Mindfulness Skills, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Emotion Regulation and Distress Tolerance. The DBT full programme is 25 weeks long and is often completed twice.
The individual session will be one-hour therapy per week with your individual therapist. This time is utilised to manage life more effectively using the skills that you are learning in the DBT Group.
