Personality disorder/Pd/EUPD support
Our clients come to us because they have been diagnosed, or labelled, as having Personality Disorder, PD, or Emotionally Unstable PD.
Unfortunately this can often come as a huge upset because of what is written on the internet or becasue of social stigma and our clients may be scared about what all this means.
We very often support people who have a had a very difficult time in children and adolescent mental health services, or who have been struggling for years with the wrong diagnosis or the wrong "therapy". Often it can be a relief for people to finally find out "what's wrong with them" and to go on a different far more successful journey.
To be clear, and we emphasise this a lot, we don't think there's anything wrong with you. It's just that perhaps you don't work well in certain situations; often you can be your own worst enemy; you may have difficulty in relationships; your inner voice wear you down; you do things for control or grounding that you may later regret; you feel like your emotions are all over the place.
There's a whole list of things to talk about, and a lot might not apply to you, as every person is unique in their own world, so we work with you to navigate that.
We give you skills that are Dialectical Behaviour Therapy informed and applied using Occupational Therapy principles.
The way we see it is you're not a patient, you're just somebody ready for a new way of doing things; so we don't use the words "in therapy", we use "in training"!
We've had excellent success with our clients (please see our Testimonials), but it isn't easy. And the way we work with you is honest, frank and entirely in your best interest.
