Do you struggle with intense emotions feeling like you are in fight/flight/freeze mode ALL the time!  Do you feel overcome by emotion and then have difficult to control urges to behave in ways that make situations worse for your health, your wallet or your relationships?  Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) is the best treatment for those who have difficulties regulating their emotions. DBT helps with:

  • rumination
  • reducing fear
  • decreasing the impact of trauma
  • reducing emotional pain and suffering
  • increasing abilities to handle distress
  • accepting reality
  • becoming more mindful
  • eating disorder behaviour
  • addiction
  • self harm
  • acting out in anger
  • borderline personality disorder/emotion regulation disorder or other mental health disorder which primarily impacts on your ability to regulate emotions

You will learn specific techniques to help:

  • build, repair and maintain relationships
  • reduce reactivity
  • replace unhelpful behaviours with helpful strategies
  • reduce fearful living
  • mindfulness as a regular practice
  • build and use a distress tolerance box in a crisis
  • learn how to validate self and others
  • learn how to live in an invalidating environment and practice self validation
  • emotion regulation as a part of daily living 

Learning DBT can be fun! We pride ourselves in making learning FUN and interactive! We use powerpoint presentations, videos, role plays, break out groups, games, interactive activities, DBT charades, and group discussions.  This psychoed program is taught by healthcare practitioners who have lived experience; a powerful combination to help you make life saving changes..  Come and join us and create your life worth living.
