Balancing Rocks


Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (RO-DBT)


Are you the sort of person who is dutiful, avoids risk and novelty, always plans, struggles to connect with others, follows the rules, feels unappreciated, has a hard time receiving feedback, or struggles to relax and be playful? Sign up for RO-DBT class and let us help you meet your goals!

RO-DBT is a new evidence-based treatment created by Dr. Thomas Lynch for patients with emotional/behavioural over-control, often leading to loneliness. ‘Self-control’ is usually seen as a good thing. However, too much self-control can cause difficulties. Excessive self-control is associated with social isolation and poor interpersonal relations and contributes to conditions like anorexia nervosa, obsessive-compulsive personality disorder, chronic depression and autistic spectrum disorders. This treatment has also proved beneficial for the treatment of refractory anxiety (meaning you have tried treatments and they haven’t worked), and maladaptive perfectionism.
