Here is my problem. Nobody seems able to give me even a rough idea of when I might begin receiving DBT. And the longer my absence from work continues, the more I worry about job security.
To avoid the waiting list, I've looked into getting DBT privately but I'm struggling to find any local, private DBT services. The MIND website says there is no formal association for DBT practitioners, making it even harder to find a practitioner with credentials. Also, I understand that part of the DBT approach is to have group therapy sessions. It seems to me that this would be practically impossible for a private practitioner to facilitate.
I know DBT isn't very common but if there is anyone here who has experienced it, whether through the NHS or privately, I'd be very grateful to hear any views about it. At the moment, I don't know whether I should (1) keep my employer waiting, or (2) put myself in the hands of a private practitioner with unknown credentials, or (3) forget the whole DBT thing and instead tell all parties concerned that I'm fit to return to work immediately.
