For you the Supporter
I help family members and loved ones of people living with bipolar who are experiencing anxiety and confusion. I assist in navigating the stormy nature of a relationship with someone who lives with bipolar.
The objective is reassurance that the person living with bipolar can live a full and productive life once they take responsibility for managing their bipolar with support in place.
I offer an understanding of the illness experience and explore how to support the person living with bipolar and allowing them to look after themselves.
Unlike therapists I have lived with bipolar for 30 years with direct experience of the impact that my illness has had on my family members and loved ones.
I know what the impact in family and loved ones is because sadly I have experienced it first hand. I know how frustrating it can be when service providers don’t give you crucial information and the support that you need. And when your loved one just doesn’t take control of their illness. I understand how frightening and isolating your experience can be.
