Schema therapy is also aimed at more longer-term problems. It is based on the idea that some people seem to get caught up in cycles of self-defeating patterns. These patterns first develop as unhelpful ways of understanding and interacting with the world early on in life, and then persist into adulthood. Schema therapy teaches the person to use various techniques to break these patterns.

Schema therapy typically involves one-on-one therapy with a trained schema therapy. A number of our therapists are trained in this approach.

The choice between DBT and schema therapy often comes down to the specific types of problems you are dealing with, and whether one approach better suits your personal style.
