Manage Your Bipolar with Online Therapy

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 CBT guide at Online Therapy has been very helpful. I was able to have a few key revelations about my current situation while working on the content provided.
Self change does take a lot of work. You can't just watch the videos and have your life changed.
But if you're willing to put in the work this site can be an excellent resource.

"I have found Online Therapy.com to be extremely helpful and it has helped me work on so many different things about my personality that I never would have without their help. I am able to go online and work with my therapist Julie any time of the day and then she gets back with me the same day. I don't have to wait a week to see her (if she was an in person therapist) to talk about something that is really bothering me. I feel connected with my therapist and she is giving me tools to live a better life."

"I wasn't sure how comfortable I would be with online therapy, but I knew I needed help so decide to give it a try. I was matched with an incredible therapist and the format is working well so far. What I appreciate most is that I'm able to connect via the website/messages and worksheets throughout the week in addition to my weekly online-meeting sessions."
