Distress tolerance is one of the four core DBT skills modules which are based on the work of Dr Marsha Linehan. The distress tolerance module lasts for eight weeks and is centred on accepting difficult situations and emotions, and finding ways to survive and tolerate the moment without engaging in problematic behaviours such as self-harm. You will be introduced to strategies of chance and acceptance, and their relevance to intense emotions, urges, and behaviours that you find problematic. 

How will I learn?

New skills are presented each week, and homework is assigned for participants to practice during the week. Homework is reviewed at the next class. People who commit to the full DBT programme (both individual therapy and skills groups) will have access to phone skills coaching which can be accessed at times of heightened distress, seven days a week. This helps to generalise the newly acquired knowledge and accelerate the effective use of skills. The goal of DBT classes is for people to gain new skills, get better at the skills they have, and be able to use the skills when they are really needed, such as during times of intense emotion, crisis or conflict.

Who should join the programme?

DBT skills can be of help to people who experience problems with:

  • regulating emotions
  • impulsivity
  • extreme emotional sensitivity
  • mood swings
  • anger
  • recurrent depression
  • anxiety
  • intense or chaotic relationships
  • impulsivity
  • stress.

What is the cost?

The fee for the 90-minute DBT classes is £75 per session. It is only possible to commit to the full module, and the fees are payable for each of the sessions. This includes sessions that are not attended, missed, or cancelled.
