Behavioural couple therapy (BCT) helps couples to understand how difficulties in their relationship can contribute to depression in one or both partners.
Maintaining a fulfilling and stable relationship is never easy. Pressures from work, money, children, family tensions, and health issues can all create problems that can lead to depression for one or both partners.
Couples can often find it hard to talk openly and honestly with each other, but meeting with a couple therapist can open the way to better communication. This can be a key part of improving your relationship.
BCT aims to help you and your partner to work together on the things that are causing unhappiness. This can lead to a happier, more fulfilling relationship and relieve depression (which also often helps to improve the relationship).
