Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) & Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, or DBT is a mindfulness based, coping skill  based practice developed by Dr. Marsha Linehan. DBT has famously helped many individuals struggling with Borderline Personality Disorder. However, we now understand this mindfulness-skill based practice can help us all. DBT utilizes a workbook that provides easy step by step instructions for struggles like; nightmares, knowing when to end destructive relationships, asking for your needs to be met and more. See the toolbox for more information.

Cognitive (thinking) Behavioural Therapy, or CBT, is a well researched method used for helping people change their feelings by changing their thoughts and behaviours. This is useful in all facets of our lives to help us deal with unwanted feelings.
