We offer assessment and treatment for Bipolar Disorder (Manic Depression) in our clinics in Godalming (near Guildford), Surrey, Haywards Heath in West Sussex and Petersfield in Hampshire.
Bipolar disorder used to be known as manic depression. It is a condition that affects moods which can swing from one extreme to another. If you have bipolar disorder, you will have periods or episodes of:
Depression – where you feel very low and lethargic
Mania – where you feel very high and overactive (less severe mania is known as hypomania)
Therapy for bipolar disorder aims to reduce the number and severity of the episodes of depression and mania that characterise the condition and thus aims to cultivate a feeling of balance. During your initial consultation and assessment with one of our Psychologists, they will discuss the best form of therapy and other approaches that they would recommend for you and your unique situation.
