Register of Accredited Therapists

Welcome to the Register of Accredited DBT Therapists.

Accreditation of a therapist by the Society for Dialectical Behaviour Therapy indicates that a therapist has fulfilled the standards set out by the Society, agreed to by abide the Code of Conduct for DBT therapists and to maintain membership in the Society. Any accredited therapist is eligible to appear on the register. Not all therapists who are accredited by the SfDBT appear on the on-line register as some have not consented to the publication of their details on the website. Please contact if you wish to check on the accreditation status of a therapist who does not appear on the register.

Please note that the SfDBT does not endorse therapists; it sets out standards for practice and reviews the practice of those who apply for accreditation. If you are looking for a therapist please contact your GP and ask about DBT services in your local area.

If you have any concerns about the conduct of an accredited DBT therapist please contact

There are currently 40 accredited DBT therapists in the UK and Ireland.  Below is the list of therapist who have agreed that their details can appear on the website.

All accredited therapists can be approached for the expert supervision required for accreditation as a DBT Therapist.
