Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, is a mental health condition characterized by extreme shifts in mood, energy, and behavior. Individuals with bipolar disorder experience episodes of mania or hypomania, which are periods of elevated or irritable mood, increased energy and activity, and decreased need for sleep, along with episodes of depression, which are characterized by feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a loss of interest in activities.

In psychology, bipolar disorder is considered a significant issue because it can have a significant impact on an individual's daily life and well-being. Individuals with bipolar disorder may struggle with work, school, and personal relationships, and may experience feelings of hopelessness and thoughts of suicide.

The exact causes of bipolar disorder are not fully understood, but a combination of genetic, biological, and environmental factors is thought to play a role. There is no cure for bipolar disorder, but with the right treatment and support, individuals can learn how to manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life.

Treatment for bipolar disorder typically involves a combination of medication and therapy. Mood-stabilizing medication can help manage symptoms of mania and depression, while therapy can help individuals learn coping strategies, improve relationships, and manage stress.

It's important to seek help if you or someone you know is struggling with bipolar disorder, as this condition can have a significant impact on daily life and well-being. With the right support and treatment, individuals with bipolar disorder can lead fulfilling and productive lives.

Potential benefits of a free initial consultation

During this first session: potential clients have the chance to learn more about you and your approach before agreeing to work together.

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward. Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process. Many people starting therapy are apprehensive about the unknown, even if they've had sessions before. Our culture associates a "risk-free" mindset with free offers, helping people feel more comfortable during the initial conversation with a specialist.
