Manage Your Bipolar with Online Therapy

Category: Bipolar | Last updated: October 18th, 2018 | Reviewed and approved by:

While it is common for people to experience mood swings from time to time, bipolar disorder is much more severe. When someone has bipolar disorder (also known as manic depression) their mood shifts from periods of over-excitement and feeling like you're "on fire" (manic episodes) to periods of feeling severely depressed (depressive episodes).

During manic episodes, it's common to have a generally elevated mood, be highly active, experience higher self-esteem and need less sleep. This often alternates with depressive periods where you feel little joy in life, have problems sleeping, gain or lose weight and experience a loss of energy.

While this can be stressful and even debilitating, there is hope. Our therapy for bipolar is based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which has been shown in research studies to help people with bipolar disorder, often used in conjunction with medication. You see, it is your thoughts that affect your perception of the world, and with bipolar disorder, your brain tends to process information in an inaccurate and distorted way. With the help of your therapist, you will be able to identify and challenge these distorted and negative thought patterns that cause your stress and even harmful behavior. By identifying the situations that trigger your manic and depressive episodes, you will be more aware of when a mood shift is about to happen. And, eventually, you will be able to control your emotions and stress. By discovering new coping and behavioral skills, you will be able to stick to a treatment plan and live a more stable lifestyle, which will reduce the risks of a relapse.

"The worksheets are very insightful! The feedback on your worksheets is a great resource. I found the layout easy to navigate and the calls with a therapist helpful. I think it is important to note that it is still up to you to use it. There are not many prompts and it can feel like a low pressure commitment - other than the payment. So you may want to set additional reminders to schedule appointments or set time to work on the worksheets. But the resources are clearly laid out and very well made."

"I have been working with Melissa for a few months now and she has been so helpful, not just during out sessions but between them as well. I am able to message her and receive thorough responses between sessions. She has provided so many great external resources for me to look into. I am so thankful for her calming presence as I work thru some big life changes."

"I am truly grateful for this program. The worksheets helped me to make so many discoveries about myself and my past behaviors, which in turn helped me to make tremendous progress.

I would also like to wholeheartedly thank Bernadette Eze for her guidance and support during this journey. I was going through something very difficult last year, and her words of encouragement and guidance helped me to complete a very difficult task. I could not have done this without her support. I am forever indebted. Thank you.
