DBT Client

It feels like a very short period of time has gone through, but when I think about it it was a very long period of time. When I started writing this testimonial, the first thing that came to my mind was my second visit to the Tree Group.

Though things aren’t clear anymore, what I know for sure is that I was confused with everything back then. I was unstable, doubtful, and insular.


In the classes, the clinicians suggest us various experiences for us to try out and share our experiences with other classmates, but I felt a great amount of pressure with the sharing. I had to speak publicly in front of many people, and I would be self-conscious, hesitant, and blushed as I had no such experience like that. I stopped numerous times as I kept telling myself I would make mistakes.


Now I know it for sure. Things I used to consider odd is now reasonable for me, it seems odd that I even label it ‘reasonable’. When I can’t understand a person and his/her emotions, isn’t it only reasonable to accept before commenting on it? Now that I reach this thought, I think I am a very accepting person!


I have now acquired many skills that I can use to keep myself under control.


I would like to articulate the emotions that I learned by heart at the Tree Group but I can’t, probably because it feels like decades have passed. I have changed to a great extent so am not able to recall myself from back then.

* We appreciate our clients for their honest and sincere testimonials.
