Interpersonal Psychotherapy

 

 
 

What's possible in treating Depression with a talking therapy.

 
Deression is a treatable illness, and your chances of getting better are very good.
Depression is a common disorder. It affects 3-4% of adults at any one time.
Depression may feel like a hopeless condition.
Even though you are suffering now, depression does respond to treatment.
The outlook for your recovery with treatment is excellent.There are many
effective treatments available – many different medications and different psychotherapies – so
you do not need to feel pesimistic even if the first one does not work. Most people
with depression recover quickly with treaments, and some recover without treatment,
although this may take longer. The prognosis is good, even though some people may
need continuing treatment for extended periods in order to prevent reccurence. Once
you have received treatment you should return to normal functioning when the symptoms
dissappear.
 
 
 
 
Interpersonal Psychotherapy what happens during therapy?
 
 During the inital consultations your therapist will evaluate with you the information you
provide s/he will then put together a formulation. This will be shared with you and if you
are in agreement a contract for therapy and the focus for therapy will be determined and the
initial phase of treatment can begin.
 
The therapy and therapist will be;
  
*      Focussing on your life as it is now.
*      Focus on your relationships with important people in your life.
*      We will discuss these relationships and your feelings. If you feel that the
  direction of the sessions is not useful or that I am 
doing something that’s
   othering you please let me know, I won’t be offended. Your feelings are important.
 
 The therapy will require a committment from you for about 12-16 weeks on a weekly basis.
As a therapist I am interested in your feelings about situations that are important to you, that
are in some way connected to your depression. I will be interested in how you are between
sessions and how your feelings are affected by events during the week.
 
There are three stages to the therapy initial, intermediate and termination phase.
 
We will have the opportunity to work together for 12 – 16 sessions after which we will agree a
follow up appointment in 12 weeks. 
The sessions are strictly confidential unless you are a risk to yourself and or others are at risk in someway.
