Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) is a proven treatment option that works very well for many people with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD).
Comprehensive DBT Therapy in Oxford
Studies have revealed that more than three-quarters of patients who undergo DBT in Oxford and elsewhere are no longer classified as suffering from BPD after completing their treatment programme. Whilst you may still experience some symptoms, they should be less severe and you will be better equipped to deal with them in a controlled manner. If you would like to find out more about DBT and how it could help, please call or email us now.
Taking an Assessment for DBT in Oxford
Before you can start a new treatment programme, you need to be assessed by one of our experienced therapists. You can book an online assessment at any time: once we receive your booking request we should be able to arrange for your assessment within 24 hours, assuming it is convenient for you. If we feel that DBT is a suitable choice for your condition, you can have your assessment fee credited against any future treatment invoices.
What a Course of DBT in Oxford Comprises
We offer courses for adults as well as courses for adolescents. These courses are delivered separately as the mode of treatment differs slightly for younger patients. Whether you are an adolescent or an adult with BPD, the course you take will cover all 4 core DBT modules. You will also have access to various other support options whilst attending weekly group treatment sessions:
- Crisis Coaching – In between your weekly Zoom sessions, you will be able to contact a qualified therapist in the event you encounter a crisis in your life. You can talk the matter through with your therapist, who will guide you on how to use the skills you have learned to stay in control.
- Peer-Led WhatsApp Group – It can be very helpful to talk about your treatment and the skills you are learning with others who are receiving DBT in Oxford or elsewhere in the UK. You will have the opportunity to do this in our WhatsApp DBT Group.
- Family Support Group – We also have an online family support group, in which family members can discover how best to help you while you are completing your therapy course.
Book Your Initial Assessment
Once you have completed your course, you can also join an aftercare group, which offers 10 weeks of further support in weekly Zoom meetings.
