DBT - Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT): Commencing 1 February, 2018

The DBT Skills Program is delivered by registered, qualified and DBT trained psychologist
Karen Woods with DBT trained facilitators to ensure participants are fully supported. 

DBT Skills are effective in improving a person’s ability to regulate distressing emotions, improve interpersonal relationships and manage times of crisis without engaging in self-damaging behaviours.

The full DBT Program is usually delivered over a year. However, we have consolidated the Program to be delivered over 11 week or 22 week blocks or attend for the full year!

The four DBT modules of Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Interpersonal Effectiveness and Emotion Regulation are covered in all our Program sessions.

The DBT Program consists of: The Group Workshop, Individual Coaching, Ten Minute Phone Coaching and a DBT Workbook. However you are most welcome to attend just Group or Individual coaching.

You must be over 18 to attend our Program.
