Behavioural couples therapy (BCT)

Behavioural Couples Therapy (BCT) is an evidence based treatment for depression. It is suitable for couples where low mood or depression is affecting one or both partners and leading to distress within the relationship.

A couple is defined as two people who are in a stable, committed relationship and living together for at least six months.

In order to engage with Behavioural Couples Therapy both partners need to be keen to be involved in the treatment.
