Manage Your Bipolar with Online Therapy

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.

"This therapy program definitely helped me in my day to day interactions and greatly lessened my anxiety. As with any online program, the logging in and doing it can sometimes be difficult. I’m not sure if I had notifications turned off, but emails or text reminders would greatly help on the weeks where it would sometimes slip my mind. Definitely stick through the program. The end is the best part, takes more thought but it’s where you will start to feel change. I cried from relief as I completed the last worksheets and felt genuinely happy. I do very much hope that all my worksheets can be saved so I can go back and see my progress months from now. Special thanks to Lisa who was very patient and thorough in our interactions :)"

"I really enjoy working with my therapist. She always refers back to past conversations, so I don't feel like I'm one of a hundred online clients. The worksheets are manageable pieces which makes sticking to the program easier - it fits into my free time slots very easily, even if its only 20 minutes here and there."

"I used to wonder why I always felt so angry and resentful. This site taught me how to look at things differently and then alter how I reacted to things. A great therapy toolbox to teach you how to change your perspective on life."
