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.

"I've only been using this service for a few weeks, but I really like the format! I'm a busy university student, and having something that really works with my time and my energy levels is awesome. I also like being able to refer back to what I've written and what my therapist has said, as I find that sometimes the high emotional intensity of in-person therapy wipes my memory of what we talked about!"

"I love the convenience this website offers of doing therapy online. I have a busy schedule and it helps being able to do it online rather in person. My therapist is wonderful and I feel she does truly listen and is very genuine. I love the worksheets and modules and how it challenges you to think outside the box and really improve yourself."
