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'm grateful for this concept. The combination of CBT worksheets and a real therapist has been helping me a lot... and it has only been nearly a month! I've been re-examining my thoughts and actively choosing the ones more beneficial for me. No, I'm not perfect. I still have a long way to go, but I'm very grateful for where I have gotten to now."

"David Aronson and the Online Therapy program has been a great help throughout my difficult mental journey. In just a months period, I have noticed a significant change in the way I think and act. Already excited to get into my second month of therapy. Only way to make a real difference in your life, is to take that first step forward. Thank you so much!"

"I am very pleased with the service Online-Therapy.com has provided me so far. The videos and worksheets help me to be organized with my thoughts and help me see where I am at, and my therapist, Elaina Gardner, is responding daily to my questions/comments which is nice. I am looking forward to my first video call with Elaina next week! I only wish I could have had a video call a little earlier.... but Elaina was already booked up all this week."

"The therapy sessions are great, so are the worksheets. I really like my therapist and we get on great. I have only given the service 3 stars because there is really very limited time available to book 1:1 sessions. Also the service offering is very ridged. I'd prefer only to have 1:1 video sessions, in order to get those I have to pay for other services I don't really use. Such a shame as I have a great relationship with my therapist."
