Yesterday was my first personal/individual session with a new therapist. It was just me, and I found him by asking our MC (who includes BPD as her specialties) who she recommended. (This was a 1:1 call between me and the MC)

I have to say, and couldn't recommend more to all of you here on this board: Find a T that is trained in/experienced with BPD. Wow oh wow does it make a difference. In 20 minutes, he understand my needs and situation and next steps better than 6 sessions with my last non-BPD trained T.

May seem obvious, but if it wasn't to me, maybe it's not to others.

Letting go of what was or what you thought was, and accepting what is, is all part of the piece to the puzzle  we need to move forward.

Hi all,

Does anyone happen to know of a good psychologist/therapist around Amsterdam (Netherlands) who can work with me in diagnosing my wife's possible BPD?

Kind regards

Hi all -

I'm currently living in Beijing, and my partner has a number of symptoms of BPD if not a formal diagnosis.  The options for english-speaking therapists here are pretty limited, so I'm wondering if anyone knows a good therapist who is willing to work over skype?  I know it's far short of ideal, but we desperately need help and I want to find someone who gets the BPD behavior pattern and ideally practices DBT.  My partner has already been through a number of therapists with little success.

Any leads welcome, thank you!
