Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) is a therapy which has been designed for people who experience emotions very intensely. It was designed to treaty Border Line Personality Disorder (BPD) which is now more commonly known as Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder (EUPD). At City Centre Therapy we recognise the labels of these diagnosis, but we do not see people as them. People who come to us with this diagnosis have often experienced trauma or poor relationships growing up. Because of this their emotions and thoughts can try to protect them, but both thoughts and emotions can sometimes be too strong and cause immense distress.


DBT is a series of techniques and interventions which teach you how to manage and regulate intense thoughts and emotions and live a life with equilibrium.


Cheryl Taylor is our DBT expert, she comes from a background of being able to identify and treat trauma which mean she can work with several approaches, or she can work with a standalone model of DBT if required.


DBT is recommended by NICE and part of the NHS pathways for EUPD and trauma. It is also used by CAMHS for children and young adults. Cheryl can treat both children and adults. If you would like to book an appointment to see her, click on book now and select Cheryl’s name to view her availability.

Bods compassion and kindness with his knowledge and skills helped me through one of the toughest periods of my life. Losing my partner shattered my life and I thought I could never be happy again. Bod helped me understand the ability to have conflicting emotion at the same time and through time I started to feel a touch of normality (well a new normal). That was a year ago and I visited Bod for a booster session. The difference in myself I cannot believe and it really is possible to find a new normality even after something so devastating.
