Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar, also known as manic depression, is a mood disorder that is characterised by severe shifts in an individual mood. In the most severe cases of bipolar, the changes between depression and euphoria can occur every few days. Like psychosis, bipolar can result in delusional behavioural patterns. Other symptoms of bipolar include anxiety, self-harm, and substance use to cope with the effects.

Causes of bipolar range from genetic and environmental factors. The most popular methods of treatment for bipolar include proscribed medication. Mood stabilizers and anticonvulsants are used to maintain a patient’s well-being and reduce the chances of relapse. Psychotherapy has been shown to help the regulation of bipolar. For a patient to have success in treatment, a combination of these two methods is often used.

Bipolar Disorder Counselling Glasgow

If you suffer from bipolar or show symptoms related to the mood disorder, it can be difficult to communicate this to people. When you are fearful of the changes in your mood, it can make conversation life’s tasks even more challenging. At Psychology Scotland, we acknowledge how much of an issue this may be, and we have prioritised creating a safe and friendly environment that is accepting of all people. Whether you are new to therapy or have experience with psychological counselling, you can be assured of a support network with your interests in mind. Our centre will welcome you no matter how small, or uncommunicable your problem may seem.

Our team of professional psychologists will initially assess you to understand what treatment plan best fits your interests. All programmes offered have been proven to work and are supported by strong empirical evidence. Once you have enrolled on a course, you will begin to develop the skills to help you manage any present mood disorders. The knowledge you learn at Psychology Scotland will allow you to adapt to the challenges you face in your life. We aim to provide all our patients with the essential tools to sustain better relationships with themselves and loved ones long after they have left therapy.

Treating bipolar takes time, but we are at hand to make the journey rewarding. Therapies such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) can help you take an action-oriented approach to the changes in your emotions. Other interventions like mindfulness can build resilience toward mood swings, meaning you can be more observant of the changes occurring. Whichever treatment programme is chosen for you, Psychology Scotland will guide you through the weeks and months of therapy. If you have come to the point where you understand that a mental condition is becoming difficult to control, then we encourage you to inquire about our services. Taking the first step toward therapy is often the most challenging, and we are here to collaborate with you so that you can aim toward a better future.
