If you or someone you love is living with bipolar disorder, you will be familiar with the manic highs and extreme lows that people with bipolar experience regularly. This roller-coaster of emotions can be confusing, frustrating, and even dangerous at times. Still, with hypnotherapy for bipolar disorder, in conjunction with traditional treatment, the maintenance of moods can finally be a reality.
Balance Your Mind with Hypnosis for Bipolar
Bipolar is characterized by two main phases through which a person cycles unpredictably. They can be thought of as the peak and trough of a wave cycle:
- The Manic Phase: During the “peak” phase, the person feels wildly optimistic and can come up with overly ambitious plans.
- They can spend large amounts of money on things they wouldn’t usually buy and be too “high” to eat, sleep, or be patient with others.
- Abnormally upbeat and unusually talkative
- Easily distracted
- The Depressed Phase: This is the “trough” of the wave cycle, in which the person can feel depressed, worthless, and potentially suicidal.
- They may isolate themselves for long periods, and lose interest in normal daily activities
- Fatigue and loss of energy
- Indecisive and lack of concentration
Hypnotherapy for bipolar disorder takes a perceptual approach. This treatment works from the perspective and “reality” of the client rather than that of the professional. The goal with hypnosis for bipolar disorder is to reduce the client’s stress levels and help them to focus on the positive aspects.
Additional Therapies for Bipolar Disorder
- Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) addresses conscious and unconscious patterns to transform negative thoughts and behaviors.
- Learn the root cause of the negative thought or behavior came from
- Find out how behavior modification techniques can alter a more productive outcome
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is based on our thoughts, feelings, and actions, all being connected.
- If you change your thoughts, then you ultimately change the behavior that follows
- Learn how to respond calmly and rationally
Both of these powerful forms of therapy are used to help the client “tame” or manage their thoughts better during the highs and lows so that the mood cycle can be brought within more functional limits.
When NLP and CBT are combined with the unparalleled benefits of hypnosis, bipolar disorder will become easier to maintain, and you will achieve faster results, so you can finally live a calmer and more joyful life.
