The DBT Psychology Clinic is a private outpatient clinic located in Potts Point, Sydney. We offer a 48-week comprehensive Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) treatment program. This involves weekly individual therapy, a weekly skills-training group and phone coaching. To ensure the best outcomes for our clients, all therapists in our team meet weekly for consultation. This structure is compliant with DBT research.
Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) is a program developed for clients who feel out-of-control in managing their emotions, in particular, clients diagnosed with borderline personality disorder/traits. Research has shown DBT to be effective in reducing suicidal behaviour, non-suicidal self-injury, psychiatric hospitalisation, treatment dropout, substance use, anger and depression and improving social and global functioning. DBT is not a suicide prevention program, it is a program designed to help individuals build a life worth living.
DBT is a psychotherapeutic method originally developed by Dr Marsha Linehan for the treatment of borderline personality disorder (1993). DBT is based on a combination of cognitive behaviour therapy and Zen Buddhist practices. Careful balance of acceptance and change techniques is the foundation of this approach. It has since been successfully adapted for use with other mental health disorders that stem from problems with emotional regulation, such as eating disorders and drug and alcohol abuse. To date there are more than 1,000 published and peer reviewed DBT research papers.
I'm doing the best that I can with what I have at this moment. That is all I can expect from anyone, including myself.
