Interpersonal Psychotherapy


IPT is used to treat depression and Bulimia Nervosa, where it has been shown to be an effective treatment. It focusses on depression in the context of relationship issues is especially useful when depression has occurred in response to bereavement, loss, life transitions, relationship problems/disputes and more fundamental problems in relating. When depression has occurs in response any of these situations the person in therapy is encouraged to see their depression in illness terms and also engage with support available from their network of friends and family


Due to the easing of lockdown restrictions I plan to return to seeing clients face to face from the start of June 2021. I plan to offer face to face sessions on certain days of the week at my office at 16 Forth Street. I will also continue to offer teletherapy for those who prefer this on other days of the week.


Best Wishes
