Manage Your Bipolar with Online Therapy

Category: Bipolar Online Therapy | Last updated: February 1st, 2022 | 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 program is very well designed with a great mix of worksheets and webinars to get you started. The therapist has short bits of helpful feedback for nearly everything that is submitted and the 1-on-1 sessions really bring all the therapy together."

"I was always reluctant to seek any kind of help with my depression and anxiety but I am so thankful to God that I did this. It has truly led to an incredible transformation. Every day that I have applied these lessons and new ways of thinking I feel more and more like myself. Things are not 100% better but they are certainly looking better and that’s a wonderful place to be."

"I have been with Vanessa for a while now. Vanessa helped me through a very difficult time. She not only listened to what I was saying she also helped with practical tips which were really useful at that time. I have since kept theses tips up in everyday life.

Since now the difficult time as passed I have remained with Vanessa for therapy once a week which has helped me out so much and added so much to my everyday life. I have also found the website very helpful . I would not hesitate recommending Vanessa to other people she has all the right skills and more to offer.
