DBT

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy

DBT is the Gold Standard for people with Borderline Personality Disorder. There are a few places available in the UK that offer this treatment.

Here at Home Counties Therapeutic Consultancy, we offer the package advocated by the author and lead in the field of DBT – Marsha Linehan. (USA). This is a combination of Skills Training Group, One to One Therapy and Phone Support.

We have been inspired as a team to offer the full DBT package to clients with complex drug addiction and adolescent with emotional and behavioural traits in line with BPD symptoms.

Who Is It For

  1. Adults with Borderline Personality Disorder.
  2. Adults with Complex Addiction.
  3. Adolescents with Behavioural and Emotional Dysregulation.

Timescale

DBT is a 26-week module course during which time the client works on all five skill-based areas in a group setting and works on individual issues with their designated therapist. Both components are necessary as clients become able to apply new skills in real life. It is highly recommended that clients complete the module twice. This is due to the fact that learning to apply the skills during the first six months takes considerable effort and the second six month period is where learning is compounded and becomes more integrated with the clients’ life and thinking style.

Each client takes part in a 2½ hour small group session each week and has a one-hour session with a DBT therapist each week.

Price

There are three price options:

  1. Group Skills Training and One to One Combined – £470 per month
  2. One Hour Forty-Five Minutes One to One – £470 per month
  3. Group Skills Training Only (if you have appropriate external therapy) – £200 per month
