IPT is a time limited structured psychotherapy for depression, usually between 12 and 16 sessions. IPT is based on the premise that there is a relationship between the way people interact with others and their psychological symptoms. So difficulties in our relationships can affect our mental health and our mental health can affect the quality of our relationships. The main focus is on relationship problems and on helping you to identify how you are feeling and behaving in your relationships. IPT is a National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommended guideline especially useful for those with depression.
