Let’s look at the life you want to live.

What behaviours are getting in the way of creating that life? What skills are missing to get you to where you need to go?

These Life Skills Groups will help you learn how to change your behaviours, emotions and thoughts that are linked to challenges in your life. They will focus on how to be more skillful in managing distress, improve interpersonal relationships, and emotional regulation through mindfulness and a DBT skilled lens.

Register for any and all modules that fit your needs. Although themes in each module may include similar content, group discussions will be unique to the module’s focus.
