Guest Blog: Amanda Magill, BABCP accredited Cognitive Behaviour Psychotherapist.


I am delighted that Amanda is able to join the blog this month to share information about Bipolar Disorder.


Bipolar Disorder is a mental health problem that mainly affects your mood. If you have Bipolar Disorder, you’ll likely have times where you experience:- > manic or hypomanic episodes, which means feeling high > depressive episodes, which means feeling low > potentially some psychotic symptoms during manic or depressive episodes These different experiences are often called mood episodes or states. The two main types of treatment for Bipolar Disorder are medication and talking therapies, such as CBT. During stable phases, these can be used hand in hand to manage your condition. CBT looks at how your feelings, thoughts, and behaviour influence each other and how you can change these patterns. It can help you to identify your triggers for mood changes, to practise how to pace yourself, to recognise the importance of rest, sleep and a balanced diet, and how to implement these improvements. If you have, or someone you know has a diagnosis of bipolar disorder, then contact Amanda at https://blueskiescbt.co.uk/ for more information.
