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.

"Online Therapy has really helped me to study myself and get to the root of my problems and problematic thinking. It now feels more natural to question myself, investigate where a certain compulsion is coming from, and react differently to it! I'm appreciating the freedom it's given me to begin to make healthier choices."

"Even my wife has noticed an improvement in the way I react to potential conflicts. I have become more aware of how I react and try more to control my first impulses."

"This online therapy has been excellent help for me. I only pay the basic amount and it still has been great. The therapist I have is really helpful and helps me day to day with any of my issues. The only thing about it being online is sometimes it’s finding that inner strength to make yourself do the work. But on a positive, it means that your activity working on yourself further. Rather then relying on a face to face therapist."

"I am new at this style of therapy and especially online is different. At first it seemed confusing but a few weeks into it I am getting the hang of it. Its making more sense and is helping me, but you have to do the work, for it to work for you."
