Bipolar and Mood Disorder management in Glasgow

There are a range of different conditions often referred to as mood disorders or forms of Bi-Polar. These issues are a major specialty of the senior practitioner (Stuart), who has also authored a number of professional practitioner training courses in this and related subjects.
(Different people use the spellings Bipolar, Bi-Polar or Bi Polar. We deliberately use all of them on this webpage for the benefit of search engines.)

Depending on whether the USA or UK definitions are used, the type of mood disorder or Bi-Polar depression you are diagnosed with can vary, since the medical professions in each country tend to have differing ideas about exact diagnosis. In the USA for example most forms of mood disorder tend to be classified as forms of Bi-Polar, and you will either end up with a specific diagnosis of Bipolar I or II, or be classified as rapid cycling, Cyclothymic or "Non-Specific" Bi-Polar.  In the UK the terms Bi-Polar I and II are common, but other forms are often instead classified as non-specific "Mood disorders" rather than specifically a type of Bi-Polar. This distinction is important for sufferers to understand since much of the self-help information in books and on the Internet originates in the USA, and thus uses their terminology.

A range of therapy methods including CBT (the NICE recommended response) are available. Counselling, coaching and eastern and western psychologies can be combined.

CBT Cognitive Behavioural therapy as part of managing mental health with Bipolar, manic depression, BPS (Glasgow)


If you are suffering from any type of depression, or mood swings, Counselling, psychotherapy and CBT may be extremely useful in managing your condition. Please note however that these are only appropriate in addition to medical supervision, and you must stay in contact with your medical doctor. CBT is the main psychological therapy recommended by NICE guidelines.

We also use handouts and training materials from externally accredited practitioner professional training courses with our clients. These courses are authored by our senior practitioner (Stuart).

As well as being qualified and registered in a number of appropriate therapy styles usable in the management of Bipolar, Stuart has also completed the "Bipolar disorder: management in primary care - in association with NICE" and "Bipolar disorder: management in secondary care - in association with NICE"  Continuous Professional Development modules and "Using cognitive behavioural therapy techniques in general practice" module with BMJ Learning.


It is our view that CBT alone is not enough and can create a somewhat cold and unresponsive therapy model, not fully in touch with the individual. Therefore we use CBT within the context of other therapies in order to make the overall process deeper, more caring and more individual.




If you do not have a diagnosis of Bipolar, Manic Depression or Borderline Personality Disorder (Glasgow)


You are welcome to attend a case history and case assessment session. We however are not able to provide a diagnosis. We are often able to assist you in identifying issues that you may not have realised as important. These can then be listed and presented to your medical doctor. One of the first stages of identifying possible mood disorders is to create an "early warning system", which in simple terms means monitoring and recording mood changes. This can then be very helpful in gathering evidence for your medical doctor and any specialist you are referred to. We also use the CORE assessment forms that are pretty much standard in NHS use, and thus information can be quite useful for presentation to your GP. Most specialists are very happy for their clients to remain also seeing us for support since we work alongside them and never seek to replace or supplant them. Our job is based around the provision of life coaching, management, counselling and psychotherapy including CBT, and this should be added to appropriate medical care.

If you are suffering from severe depression or mania, or feel any urges to harm yourself or others, you should seek an urgent appointment with your GP without delay. We may still be able to assist you, but we will need you to seek medical advice first.
