Dialectical Behavioural Therapy

What is Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)?

DBT is a form of cognitive behavioural therapy. It is designed to help change unhelpful or harmful behaviours and ways of thinking, with a focus on accepting who you are and adopting constructive behavioural changes.

DBT helps you learn how to manage your emotions by letting you recognise, experience and accept them. It can help you gain control over your actions or your responses to situations.

  • post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • repeated self-harming
