Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) is a mindfulness based behavioural therapy that focuses on training people to develop better skills for managing life. It focuses on assisting clients with four key areas: distress tolerance, mindfulness skills, emotion regulation and interpersonal skills. Originally developed by Dr Marsha Linehan as a therapy to help people with intense emotional distress and high risk behaviours, it is now more widely used to help people with everything from anxiety to eating disorders. DBT skills are generally taught in a group environment and we do not offer these groups at this service. If you have attended a DBT program somewhere or you are planning to attend one and would like an individual DBT therapist, please call Virginia on 0476 674 094 or e-mail virginia.pulker@gmail.com.
