Adult Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Skills Group


If you are someone experiencing depression, anxiety, borderline personality disorder, PTSD, self harm, substance abuse, or eating disorders such as binge eating or bulimia, our DBT Skills group is an amazing opportunity to gain practical skills that will help you live a life you really want to live!

DBT is also effective for anyone who is easily overwhelmed with emotions and wants to improve their ability to self regulate. Anyone can benefit from the support, community and skills offered in this group.

How our DBT Skills group Can Help

The reason this group is effective is because DBT skills can be applied in ‘real time’, right when a situation is occurring that is stressful or creates a lot of emotion. As a result, you will experience:

  • Better relationships and improved communication
  • The ability to handle stress and intense emotions
  • Improved mental focus
  • Fewer racing thoughts
  • Less anxiety
  • The ability to regulate your emotions rather than trying to resist or avoid them

This group is a great way to start the New Year with tools and skills that you can apply in every area of your life – at home, work and socially with friends.
