Advanced Therapy for Depersonalization/Derealization: Help from an English-speaking, Certified Psychotherapist


Online Therapy for Depersonalization | Derealization (DDD—DP/DR)


Depersonalization and Derealization take many forms in many people. No two clients with DDD (formerly DP/DR) are exactly the same. Therapy for DDD must be tailored to the specific client. In this specialized therapy—delivered by me, Tidal Grace (MA, RCC, BDP, Depersonalization Specialist)—you will learn:

  • what your Depersonalization/Derealization actually is (it’s biological and psychological characteristics)
  • what your Depersonalization/Derealization signifies for you (it’s underlying meaning)
  • a specific path towards dealing with your Depersonalization/Derealization

Don’t believe the blogs, books, and endless YouTube videos on how DP and DP cannot be beaten: Depersonalization and Derealization can be beaten. Depending on where your Depersonalization comes from, and if you are experiencing other symptoms, this therapy uses a combination of DBT (Dialectical Behavioural Therapy), Exposure therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Gestalt therapy.

Ways I work with DP/DR:

Schema Therapy for Depersonalization

Schema Therapy does not have any studies done on its effectiveness with DP/DR but I have found that it to be one of the best modalities for dealing with DP/DR. Schema therapy is an integrative psychotherapy combining theory and techniques from previously existing therapies, including cognitive behavioral therapy, psychoanalytic object relations theory, attachment theory, and Gestalt therapy.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) for Depersonalization

CBT has been found to be effective in reducing symptoms of depersonalization; behavioral activation & Behavioral activation relates to increasing involvement in reinforcing activities. Exposure exercises aimed at experiencing the discomfort of DPD or the discomfort that preceded its onset may be useful.”

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for Depersonalization

“(ACT; Hayes, Strosahl & Wilson, 2003) ACT techniques overlap nicely with behavioral techniques. Essentially ACT implies acceptance of discomfort and commitment to pursue a life that is valued. This involves overriding impulses to act in ways that are counterproductive to your values, while being deliberate about your behaviors. The aim is not to change or adjust your thoughts (we are not striving for rational thinking, but rather, functional behaving). Rather, ACT encourages accepting discomfort and unpleasant thoughts and not allowing them to control your behavior.
