Bipolar Disorder Counselling In Caulfield

Helping You Overcome Bipolar Disorder To Live Life Better

Bipolar disorder is a common, yet frustrating condition for those who live with it. It can be triggered from high periods of stress over time, or can come on suddenly.

The beginnings of bipolar disorder may start to show signs of unexpected and dramatic mood swings, a loss of interest in what you used to do, and feelings of low self-esteem.

Bipolar disorder shouldn’t be mistaken for mood swings. Did you know that women are more inclined to experience this disorder than men in Australia?

You don’t have to live with the ups and downs of Bipolar disorder. With professional help you can have the power and knowledge to manage it more successfully.

Signs That You May Have a Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder generally shows a number of different signs. Symptoms do vary because of the highs and lows that are experienced. Symptoms include:

  • Unexpected, dramatic, and overwhelming mood swings.

How Does a Bipolar Disorder Start?

Bipolar disorder can occur from many reasons. However, the underlying reason isn’t completely known. Some reasons include, but isn’t limited to:

  • Genetics and a family history of the disorder that’s been carried down across generations.
  • Unbalanced brain chemicals that are showing signs of being underactive or overactive.
  • Different environmental changes that have exposed you to great stress.
  • An undiagnosed or diagnosed medical condition that may be compromising your health.
