Everyone experiences emotions at different intensity levels, with some people experiencing both the highs and lows of emotion as much more intense experiences than others. If extremes of emotion or difficulty in emotional regulation are hindering your everyday life, Angus Munro Psychology offer expert Dialectic Behaviour Therapy in Sydney and the surrounding area.
Dialectic Behaviour Therapy (DBT) helps in managing the behaviours that result from feeling high and low emotional extremes. By teaching you techniques to regulate your emotions and build ways of managing distress, DBT can help you live a more balanced life and avoid the destructive behaviours that stem from extreme emotions.
DBT was originally developed to assist those experiencing Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) but has since been used to effectively treat various psychological issues. The main focus is helping the client develop coping mechanisms to regulate the intensity of their emotions. This in turn leads to more control over behaviour and more effective interpersonal skills.

If you struggle with experiencing extremely intense emotions and have difficulty pulling yourself out of strong negative emotions, or if you struggle to regulate your behaviour and interactions with others as a result of chaotic emotions, DBT psychotherapy from Sydney’s expert clinical psychologists could be the answer.
Angus Munro Psychology offers a safe and controlled space to develop healthy ways of regulating your emotions. DBT psychotherapy has been shown to be effective in helping people of all ages and backgrounds with their emotional regulation.
A number of specific skills are addressed in DBT: emotion regulation, distress tolerance, mindfulness and interpersonal effectiveness. These skills will help you identify and reign in excessive emotional reactions and manage stress in a more constructive way.
The goals of DBT are closely linked with cognitive behavioural therapy, as they both work towards changing the patient’s unhelpful and negative ways of thinking. DBT also emphasises self- acceptance. Accepting who you are while at the same time changing what you don’t like about yourself is a huge step towards healthy emotional experiences and can have positive consequences in all areas of your life. This state of increased acceptance and wellbeing is the end goal of Dialectic Behaviour Therapy.
