Hi everyone

I haven't been in therapy in years but after some tough experiences lately, I realise that i have to get help. Things might be fine when they're fine but it doesn't mean my life has to come crashing down when things aren't fine. This just proves I still need help.

Would love to hear some of your experiences / recommendations for BPD specific therapies. I've contacted a local BPD specialist and am thinking about being referred to the group therapy session as i want to hear other peoples experiences.

Thoughts? Feelings? Stories?

Thank you :thanks:

its usually suggested to get DBT as its BPD specific, I'm not on it yet, but from what I've heard its really helpful but difficult

Hi, I'm 7 months into DBT and it is a game-changer. It covers mindfulness, emotional regulation, distress tolerance and interpersonal effectiveness. Its all about learning skills to help manage and reduce the symptoms and its very cleverly thought out. The woman who created it suffered from DBT herself so knows her stuff.
Its very hard and takes a lot of effort and time but its worth it.
if you have any other questions please just ask

Just got a referral to see a psychiatrist to be assessed for DBT therapy. Wish me luck! :)

Good luck with the assessment. You'll probably be asked a variety of questions, think they're known as BPD indicators, and that will help them assess if its right for you.
Let us know how you get on
