Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) is now on offer to our young people at Huntercombe Hospital Edinburgh.
DBT is a structured therapy that includes a focus on a person’s thoughts, emotions, beliefs and behaviours.
At Huntercombe Hospital Edinburgh individual therapy sessions take place alongside a skills training group supported by access to DBT coaches between sessions if needed.
Leading our DBT programme we have a core team comprising eight clinical staff members headed by our Lead Clinical Psychologist and all our staff have been trained to have a good understanding of DBT language, better insight into how changes to a physical environment can promote helpful behaviours and most importantly knowledge of the skills our patients are actually learning in the skills group.
