Living Effectively with Bipolar Disorder
Welcome to Bipolarity
Psychologist based treatment in Sydney for Bipolar Disorder (BD)
Jo Leidreiter is a registered psychologist in private practice offering focused psychological strategies and support for the treatment of Bipolar Disorder and related Mood Disorders:
- Do you have Bipolar Disorder?
- Do you suffer from recurrent Depression?
- Have you been recently diagnosed?
- Are you struggling to come to terms with your diagnosis?
- Does your life swing from one extreme to another? One crisis to another?
- Is your illness impacting your work and social life?
- Are you looking for effective strategies to deal with your disorder?
- Do you need more support other than just medication?
If you have Bipolar Disorder most people question their ability to create a life with fewer periods of depression and mania. Because it is a lifelong battle, it’s easy to lose motivation and think about giving up along the way. I can help show you there is a way to a more stable life and managing mood better.
As a psychologist with over 10 years of clinical practice specialising in Bipolar Disorder (BD) I can help you navigate the often confusing world of medications, psychiatrists, and the up-and-down mood cycles common to the disorder. I will help you to understand what Bipolar Disorder is and provide sound support and guidance for developing the necessary coping skills to manage and lessen its impact upon your life.
