When you have bipolar disorder, your moods may seem like they are never stable. You either feel up or down (or sometimes both at once), but you rarely feel as if you fall into an "in-between" mood or have any sense of stability. This mental health disorder can be difficult to manage even in the best of circumstances. However, if you live in a rural area, it can feel even more difficult.
While group therapy and couples counseling have their beneficial uses, when you want focused attention, then individual counseling may suit your needs better. The focus stays on you and your problems the entire counseling session so you make progress toward the goals you have set for your recovery from depression, anxiety, or other life problem.
