DBT pre-commitment program

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) is an effective form of cognitive behavioural therapy that helps you reduce the frequency of self-harm, assist in emotional regulation and reinforce healthy behaviours.

This group is for people who struggle with their emotions, experience impulsivity, significant distress, or who have difficulty in maintaining relationships or employment.

Some of the specific psychological problems that can be helped with DBT include clinical depression and anxiety, binge eating, post-traumatic stress disorder and substance use problems.
