Interpersonal Therapy (IPT) helps people with depression identify and address problems in their relationships with family, partners and friends.
Sometimes, difficulties in relationships with partners, friends or family can lead to feeling depression or low in mood. This resulting depression can in turn lead to additional problems in our relationships.
You may be offered IPT if you have severe depression or depression that hasn’t responded to other talking therapies, such as CBT. IPT is usually offered over 16 to 20 sessions.
