Bipolar Disorder: Learn the Warning Signs and Where to Find Counsellors in the Sydney CBD

Bipolar is a brain disorder that is characterised by swift and sudden changes in mood: soaring high or “manic” periods of heightened energy and crushing “hypomanic” lows in which a task as simple as getting out of bed can seem entirely overwhelming. The direct factors that cause these episodes are as of yet undetermined, though they are a reality for millions worldwide and can create major disturbances in one’s day to day life.

Symptoms of a manic episode include increased energy, difficulty sleeping, rapid, disorganised speech, and risk-taking that is out of character. A hypomanic episode can look a lot like depression, with the individual exhibiting low levels of energy and no enjoyment of activities they usually love as well as over-eating, over-sleeping, and suicidal thoughts.

If you or a loved one are experiencing these symptoms, Sydney Emotional Fitness is here to help. Located in the heart of the bustling Sydney CBD, our counsellors seek to provide clients with results-based treatment using a wide variety of current scientifically researched methods.
