Bipolar counseling

//Bipolar counseling

Need to talk? Trust that feeling. Bipolar counseling is an essential part of treatment.

Study after study shows that the most effective treatment for bipolar disorder is a COMBINATION of bipolar medications AND talk therapy.

One really interesting innovation is bipolar online counseling.

Why online counseling?

No matter where you are or what the time is, with online therapy / counseling there are ALWAYS dozens of recognized professionals right at your fingertips:

Reputable online counseling services such as LivePerson, Breakthrough.com and Just Answer are used by thousands of consumers daily and I can recommend them all.

My favorite is LivePerson because they have so many therapists with specific expertise in manic depressive illness and will work with you online, by telephone or via email and offer the best value for money and affordable and transparent pricing 🙂

(Although Breakthrough is also good because they train their counselors specifically in online therapy and many accept insurance).

These experts have up-to-date and reliable information on bipolar
disorder – and any other conceivable issue you need to talk about.

The best part?

Reminder

Online counseling for bipolar or depression gives you access to live professional counselors worldwide.

Online counseling provides you with this access to therapists from the privacy, comfort, security and convenience of your own home.

Regardless of whether you need an urgent, one time consultation on an issue of immediate concern, or would like to establish an on-going relationship of counseling, support is right at your fingertips.

Imagine total flexibility from a service which is all about YOU.

YOU get to choose between telephone, email, or live chat!

YOU control the level of anonymity and disclosure!

Access a world-wide resource for the very best fit and value for money. No travel and no fitting in with someone else’s schedule.

So, instead of limiting yourself to the counselors in your immediate area, you can connect to top counselors
all over the world. Traveling to your local counselor’s clinic can be both time-consuming and expensive.

Tips for online counseling for bipolar disorder:

Live Chat:
Most reputable services will provide the first few minutes of Live Chats 100% FREE. Payment will only begin if you you choose this particular expert for your bipolar counseling. Make the most of Live Chat by using the beginning of the conversation to air all your concerns, ask your questions, negotiate a fee that is in line with your budget and make sure this is truly the right expert for you.

Email:
Use this option if you find that writing helps you with organization and focus. You will get max value for money if you don’t waste time getting to the point! Sometimes our illness makes it hard to organize our thoughts and can result in a rambling or discursive speaking style which chews up therapy time. Having to write makes it easier to structure and prioritize and there is no charge for the time spent composing your email to your therapist. You can go at your own pace and get counseling from someone who has also had time to reflect on your content.

Privacy and security are paramount and you can be confident of being protected. ALWAYS ask about what privacy protection and security mechanisms are in place.

How exactly does it all work?

With a professional provider, you are completely protected. No charges are incurred until you clarify initial questions and reach a clear and mutual agreement over fees. If
you opt for an email session, payment occurs when the session completes.

Talk therapy is a critical element of managing bipolar disorder. Here is a safe, private and savvy way of obtaining this essential service on your terms.

Every day I get requests from individuals – the problem is that I am NOT a medical expert and am not
professionally qualified.

Please do not take chances with your health by attempting to obtain therapy from a stranger – use an established bipolar counseling provider for a properly trained and accredited expert
therapist.

    II am emotionally involved with a male friend who is bipolar and takes Adderal for Add. He was incarcerated for 20 years of a 50 year sentence for writing checks from his company while in a manic episode and not on medication. He bought items such as a vacuum cleaner and new clothes. It was 5 checks in all valuing very little money. He was an attorney at the time, and lost the right to practice. After three years as a model prisoner, the DA in Houston blocked his parole.He went through colon cancer, with a colostomy bag, while incarcerated, and just finished forty rounds of radiation treatment for prostate cancer. He admits that he was very arrogant at the time of his conviction, but also feels that the judge “threw the book at him” with the length of the sentence. He has not been able to rent a decent place to live or find a job that pays well. He drives for Uber. I believe, as does he, that his bipolar diagnosis, which was evaluated as he was getting his sentence, was not taken into consideration. Is there any action he can take at his time? He earned a PHD in philosophy while in prison. I have known him since college forty years ago, and see no violent tendencies in this man. I have been around him for over three months almost every day now, and feel that I have seen him in the worst of circumstances. The only place of residence he could find in which to reside, is a pit of delinquent people. He was just served with a warrant for his arrest for allegedly ruining the paint job on the car of a visitor to the residence. He has had to hire an attorney, and I have watched him go through torture as he looks at the possibility of life in prison. He has not been able to sleep or eat. He had extremely cruel treatment in prison, and is terrified of returning, especially for the remainder of his life. I am supporting him one hundred per cent. My sister is bipolar, and I understand the disease. Where can he get some help? He is unaware that I have written you. I don’t know all the circumstances involved in such a long prison sentence, but what I observe in him now does not show me a person who should have spent that amount of time in the prison system Stories of the things done to him not only by inmates, but by the prison staff and parole officers, give me cold chills. He is attending my church with me, and is very open about his mistakes. He feels that he has an “X” on his back that will stigmatize him for life. Please advise me where I can get him some help. .Has the status of a person who is bipolar changed as far as a conviction would be concerned in court in the past 25 years?

    The world is very cruel for even the most mentally stable of us so for us who have emotional illness life can be so difficult. It sounds like your friend got a very bad deal and continues to suffer injustice because of his mental illnesses. My heart goes out to such ones. Certainly he is in need of treatment. Maybe you can assist him to get some quality care. Sounds like he lives in an unstable environment. Maybe there are better places he could stay.

    Libby,
    Have you tried contacting NAMI
    (National Alliance of Mentally Ill)?
    I would find the telephone number
    (Speak to somebody directly)
    Of the president or highest up officer that you can find the telephone number for-don’t email-talk directly to someone-and talk to a higher up-
    Because the lay people will not be able to help you.
    The president is there for a reason.
    He/she believes in the cause.
    Good luck.
    I am sorry that you and your friend are having to go through this ordeal.
    I agree-I think the DA used your friend as an example.
