What is Dialectical Behaviour Therapy?
Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) is a cognitive-behavioural approach designed to help individuals manage overwhelming emotions, improve relationships, and cultivate a balanced life. Rooted in both cognitive-behavioural therapy and mindfulness practices, DBT emphasizes the balance between acceptance and change. It equips individuals with practical skills to regulate emotions, navigate interpersonal conflicts, and handle distressing situations.
Originally developed for individuals with borderline personality disorder, DBT has since proven effective for a range of mental health challenges, including anxiety, depression, and mood disorders. At Next Level Counselling, our DBT sessions are tailored to empower you with the tools and strategies needed to face life's challenges head-on, fostering growth, healing, and lasting change.
What to Expect from DBT
DBT is not just about talking; it's about learning actionable skills. Expect to acquire tools for mindfulness, emotional regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness, empowering you to handle life's challenges more effectively.
Individual and Group Sessions:
While individual therapy dives deep into personal challenges, group sessions offer a platform to practice skills with peers, providing diverse perspectives and mutual support.
To reinforce what you learn in therapy, expect regular assignments. This homework helps integrate DBT skills into daily life, ensuring lasting change.
A Strong Therapeutic Alliance:
At Next Level Counselling, we prioritize building a trusting relationship with our clients. This bond ensures open communication, fostering genuine understanding and growth.

Benefits of Dialectical Behaviour Therapy
DBT equips you with tools to understand and manage intense emotions. Instead of being overwhelmed, you'll learn to respond to emotions in a balanced and controlled manner, leading to improved mental well-being.
Enhanced Interpersonal Skills:
DBT fosters better communication and conflict resolution skills, helping you build and maintain healthier relationships with loved ones, colleagues, and friends.
Reduction in Self-Harming Behaviours:
Many individuals turn to DBT to address self-destructive behaviours. The therapy provides coping mechanisms that replace harmful habits, promoting safety and self-care.
Mindfulness and Presence:
DBT incorporates mindfulness practices, teaching you to live in the present moment. This focus on the 'here and now' reduces anxiety and fosters a deeper connection with oneself and the world.
