A Gift to Yourself!

The journey of dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) for borderline and bipolar disorders is like embarking on a transformative train ride. Initially, you may feel anxious and uncertain, as if stepping onto a train platform, unsure of what lies ahead. But as you settle into your seat on the “DBT Express”, the journey unfolds with its ups and downs, much like the fluctuations experienced in these mental health conditions. The various stops along the way symbolize the different modules of DBT, including mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation, and distress tolerance. As the journey progresses, you gain valuable skills to navigate the twists and turns of your emotions and relationships. Gradually, you find stability amid the chaos, much like a smoothly running locomotive on its tracks. And at the end of this therapeutic expedition, empowered with newfound tools and insights, you step off the train feeling stronger and better equipped to face life’s challenges head-on.

Look at how far you’ve come. You have made progress. Now, imagine how far you can go ...

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) skills training is a game-changer for individuals struggling with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) or Bipolar Disorder (BD). By participating in this evidence-based group counselling program, you will gain practical and transformative tools to navigate intense emotions, impulsivity, and unstable relationships.

Not sure Where to Start?

In most situations, we recommend starting with DBT for Emotional Relief. It includes skills from the four DBT Skill areas: Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotional Regulation, and Distress Tolerance. These 12 weeks are similar to the regular DBT Skills Basics Group but focus on immediate management of symptoms. After the 12 weeks, participants continue with the additional 12 weeks from the DBT Skills Basics Group. If you are not sure which program is best for you, contact an STG professional to help you make a choice during an orientation session.
