What a bipolar disorder therapist can do for you?

Bipolar disorder therapists regularly apply a combination of medication with three types of therapy: Cognitive-behavioral therapy, interpersonal and social rhythm therapy, and family-focused therapy. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), encourages clients to examine how their thoughts affect their emotions. Furthermore, therapists also provide these individuals with the skills necessary to change negative thinking patterns and behaviors into more positive ways of responding to stressful situations. Interpersonal therapy, on the other hand, focuses on the clients current relationship issues in order to help them improve the way they relate to those around them. Similarly, family-focused therapy also addresses these struggles and aims to repair a healthy and supportive home environment.

Why hire a bipolar disorder therapist?

Therapy teaches clients how to deal with the problems that bipolar disorder symptoms cause, including work, relationship, and self-esteem issues. One-on-one sessions also address any other challenges they may be facing, including substance abuse or anxiety. Furthermore, a therapist can help to prescribe medications that regulate and ease some of the more severe signs of the disorder. However, it is important to keep in mind that while medication is important to help control the symptoms of bipolar disorder, those suffering from the condition are more likely to get better faster and stay well longer if they also receive professional therapy.
