How Can I Help Myself?
Compassion focused therapy (CFT) can help you to take a new approach to managing difficult emotions. It will help you understand why we experience emotions, how they can be helpful but also how and why we can get into struggles with them. Developing a compassionate mind and using this to build more helpful emotion regulation strategies will bring greater balance to your emotions.
Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) also offers clinically-proven techniques which can help you to understand the symptoms of a personality disorder, to find different ways of coping with those overwhelming emotions and to develop emotional resilience to manage better on a day-to-day basis.
