BPD/Bipolar DBT

Talk therapy with Dialectical behavior therapy (Individual & Group Therapy) is usually the first choice of treatment for Borderline personality disorder / Mania* based on current NHS guidelines. Generally, treatment involves one to two sessions a week with our therapists. DBT helps you to change unhelpful behaviours,it differs from CBT in that it also focuses on accepting who you are at the same time. DBT places particular importance on the relationship between you and your therapist, and this relationship is used to actively motivate you to change. Current research shows that Dialectical Behavior Treatment (DBT) can decrease the symptoms and suffering of people with BPD. The model we use for DBT is based on individual therapy and when clients are ready Group therapy as it focuses on acceptance and support within small groups.

People whose symptoms improve may still have issues related to co-occurring disorders, such as depression, substance abuse, eating disorders, or post-traumatic stress disorder. However, research suggests that full-blown BPD symptoms rarely coming back after remission.
