DBT Can Teach You Life-Long Skills To Improve Your Overall Well-Being
In safe, confidential and nonjudgmental sessions your expert Personal Growth Counseling therapist will offer you support and guidance as you start learning, developing and practicing these new DBT skills. No matter your history or current situation, your therapist will tailor these skills to help you build self-esteem and maintain healthy relationships.
Beyond teaching you the primary four skill sets, your DBT therapist can help you identify, explore and address the root causes and triggers to your issues. For instance, if you were abused or neglected as a child, you may have experienced trauma. These early life experiences, as well as others, can shape the way you form interpersonal relationships. By better understanding where your issues stem from, increasing self-awareness and developing healthy coping and living skills, you can begin developing healthier relationships and experience emotional relief.
In sessions, you can also develop greater feelings of self-worth and self-love. You can begin to value yourself and strive for equal relationships in your life. Perhaps you were raised in an environment where it was not accepted to express your anger, which caused you to remain quiet and submissive with your family and in other relationships. Our tailor-made DBT strategies can help you learn to be taken seriously, given respect, regulate your emotions and ask for help when you need it.
Using DBT skills, you can start communicating better with loved ones and colleagues. Together, you and your therapist will establish goals for healthy communication patterns within a defined relationship. Then, you will determine how you want to feel about yourself in this relationship. If you are unsatisfied with how you feel in certain relationships, your therapist will help you learn to value yourself and ask for what you need.
While you may feel overwhelmed by your emotions, you have hope. DBT sessions can help you find your confidence and improve your relationships with loved ones and colleagues.
