Mentalisation based treatment (MBT) is an evidence-based psychological programme that was initially developed for people living with borderline personality disorder (BPD) by clinicians and researchers at the Anna Freud Centre.

Since then it’s been proven to be helpful in supporting people whose interpersonal sensitivity is the core feature of their struggles. MBT programme consists of both group and individual components and its recommended length is a minimum of 12 months. Individual sessions can be attended in-person or online and the group online via Zoom. 

Who should join?

There is no specific diagnostic requirement for participation in the MBT programme. If any of the following challenges interfere with the quality of your life, either in personal or professional contexts, MBT is highly recommended.

  • Difficulties regulating intense emotions that lead you to behave in ways you don’t understand.
  • Chaotic relationships where you either frantically pursue or impulsively cut the other person off.
  • Enormous fear of abandonment and trying to avoid it at all costs.
  • Impulsive urges and risky behaviours that make your life unbearable or lead to feelings of self-hate or shame.
  • Episodes of extreme emotional pain and attempts to stop it with self-harm, alcohol, drugs or sex.
  • Rapidly changing moods for no apparent reason.
  • Anger, emotional sensitivity and recurrent depression often related to relationship dynamics. 
  • It is possible to join the group alone if you have an external MBT therapist.
