I offer full programme Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) as part of Brighter Horizons Brighton. We are a specialist DBT team offering weekly individual therapy, group skills training and between session crisis telephone coaching. I offer full programme DBT for individuals with a Borderline Personality Disorder diagnosis. I also offer individual DBT-informed therapy for people struggling with managing emotions or stress. Finally, we have developed an 8 session group Wellbeing Programme for individuals wanting to learn strategies to better understand and manage their emotions. The Wellbeing Programme is based on 3rd wave cognitive behavioural therapy approaches including DBT, compassionate mind and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
