Comprehensive DBT Therapy in Edinburgh, Personalised to Meet Your Specific Needs
As Dialectical Behaviour Therapy specialists, we have enjoyed helping thousands of people across the UK to overcome the challenges of Borderline Personality Disorder and lead more balanced, happy lives. If you suffer from this condition or you have been told that it is a possibility, we would like to invite you to book an assessment with a member of our team. Once your assessment has been completed and a diagnosis made, we will be in a position to recommend an appropriate treatment programme for you. All assessments and subsequent treatment sessions are conducted via Zoom, making it easy for you to get the help you need.
DBT therapy in Edinburgh for Adults and Adolescents
We offer two full DBT programmes in Edinburgh, one for adults and a separate programme designed specifically for adolescents. The adult programme is delivered over 30 weeks while the adolescent programme is delivered in 3 cycles, of 16 weeks each. However, not all adolescents will need to complete all 3 cycles. At the end of each one, we review the progress that has been made and, together with the patient, decide on a future treatment plan. Many adolescents are able to achieve excellent results after just 2 cycles.
All of our DBT treatment programmes cover the 4 core modules of dialectical behaviour therapy: Emotional Regulation, Distress Tolerance, Interpersonal Effectiveness and Mindfulness. If you only want to complete a single module, this is possible. However, to obtain the maximum benefit from your treatment, we recommend completing all 4 modules. By doing so, you will learn all the techniques you need to lead a more balanced and stable life.
