I began pre-DBT treatment as completely hopeless, with no imaginable future. I had been in and out of mental health services continuously for my adult life and nothing had improved. 18 months later after starting DBT (Dialectical Behaviour Therapy), I'm living a happy life, I have a future, and I'm in the best position and mental health of my life. I can't say enough for the DBT team, who made what could have been a gruelling 12 month course so engaging and enjoyable, not to mention incredibly effective. Aine, my one to one therapist and Liz, who started me on the DBT path, were so encouraging and genuinely care about their clients, as do the entire team. It's a treatment I encourage anyone who meets the requirements to participate in, and I believe more funding needs to be given as the results speak for themselves (a comfortable new location for the group classes would make a world of difference!)
Thank you so much for the support you've given me over the past few months. I truly believe you have saved my life.
