In 2005, I worked at The Helios Centre at Lynfield Mount Hospital, co-facilitating groups of adults with a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder using DBT (Dialectic Behaviour Therapy). In my time at The Helios Centre, I taught relaxation techniques, distraction techniques as well as teaching anxiety management.
Attending a group with others who are experiencing similar symptoms and experiences to you can be eye opening and confirming as well as empowering.
~ While the diagnosis is unimportant to me (it may not be to you),
it’s what you’re struggling with, that matters to me~
