Interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) was first developed for the treatment of depression but has also been shown to have a good effect in the treatment of bulimia nervosa, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and anxiety disorders. IPT can also provide good help when it comes to dealing with crises, getting through severe grief or ending constant quarrels in close relationships.
IPT is about understanding how your problems, such as depression, are related to your current relationships. A basic premise of IPT is that depression is a disease state but also a reaction to relationship problems. IPT is about identifying the factors in your current relationships that give rise to depressive symptoms. You will learn to pay attention to the emotional reactions that relationship problems give rise to. What makes you sad? What makes you angry? But above all: What makes you react with depression?
In addition to a licensed psychologist, our specialist psychologist is a licensed psychotherapist and a specialist in clinical psychology is also an authorized IPT therapist.
Do you want to feel better by learning to deal with relationship problems? Then IPT may be a suitable method for you. Different therapy methods work differently depending on the problem and personality. Our specialist psychologist has education and experience of various methods with strong scientific support. During the first conversations, you make an assessment together of which therapy method may work best for you and your specific needs.
