Therapy (DIT)

What is DIT?

Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT) is a structured psychodynamic therapy that is focused on the link between mood and relationships.

How does DIT work?

DIT aims to help you understand the connection between your current difficulties and what is happening in your relationships by identifying a core repetitive pattern of relating that can be traced back to childhood. Once this pattern is identified, it will be used to make sense of difficulties in relationships in the here-and-now that could be contributing to psychological stress. A DIT therapist will also help you to reflect on your thoughts, feelings and experience, with the goal of helping you to establish more helpful ways of being in and managing important relationships in your life.

Who is it for?

There is a growing body of scientific evidence demonstrating the benefit of this approach for depression and anxiety. It can be a useful approach if you are interested in reflecting on your past and current relationships with others and want to work on improving how you relate to both other people and yourself.
