MEET DR VIKAS PATEL
Dr Vikas Patel provides a bespoke care plan for each client. His goal is to help clients target behaviours that no longer serve them and restore a foundational skill set so they can better manage everyday issues. He has a special interest in supporting people of colour and members of the LGBTQIA+ community.
Dr Patel specialises in Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) for individuals and group skills classes. He enjoys teaching these skills because they are evidenced-based interventions to manage emotions and interpersonal issues and because he views DBT as a lifestyle therapy. Dr Patel also offers Radically Open DBT (RO DBT) to empower individuals to address excessive self-control or over-control and find a better balance.
