Hello, I am Jane Vickers and I offer DBT skills training to adults and teenagers in the county of Gloucestershire. I run a small clinic in Stroud on Thursdays between 9am-5pm at a local health centre.
Currently, due to Covid 19 I am doing sessions from home via phone or a video platform.
I am an accredited DBT Therapist, an Accredited DBT Supervisor and Registered Mental Health Nurse (RMN.) I have extensive experience in helping people overcome a wide variety of mental health difficulties using DBT since 2005. In particular, I specialise with individuals who have Borderline Personality Disorder. Most of my work has been with adults, however in the last few years I have also been working with teenagers.
I have worked in the NHS for 20 years and continue to work for the NHS as part of my working week as a Specialist Nurse Practitioner.
I had a research article published in May 2016 in the Mental Health Practice journal entitled “Assessing a Six-Month Dialectical Behaviour Therapy Skills-Only Group” which evaluated the effectiveness of the DBT Skills groups I have been running since 2010 in the NHS for individuals with serious mental illness (Vickers 2016.)
