What is DBT?

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy is a treatment developed by a psychologist named Marsha Linehan. This is a treatment that focuses on your goals, skills, and the future that you want to build. This treatment was developed to help clients who struggle with regulating intense emotions, anger, impulsivity, addiction, eating disordered behaviours, self-destructive and suicidal behaviour, trauma, and/or borderline personality disorder.

“I really enjoyed the DBT course. I believe that it helped me to cope not only with things going on my life at the present but also helped prepare for future things. My life feels a lot more manageable and meaningful after doing DBT. It also helped that I was able to email my coaches anytime and get very fast responses so I did not feel alone in tackling such intimidating things in my life.”

"DBT changed my life. I know it sounds cliche, but it's true. I'm a giant skeptic and even when I signed up, I was still almost refusing to believe it would help. I thought I had a handle on myself and my symptoms. I was dead wrong. Meeting people like me, hearing their stories, feeling validated in my struggles...it changed how I view myself. Learning these skills taught by these incredible women changed how I view the world. I am forever changed from all that I have learned over these past six months. DBT changed my life."

"Thanks to the program I feel peace and joy for the first time in years. It's not to say I don't struggle occasionally, but because of hard work and commitment to leveraging the skills I learned in this course, my personal and professional relationships have improved significantly. For anyone considering this program: prepare to be challenged, but the payoff can be life-changing."
