What is Borderline Personality Disorder?
Borderline personality disorder is a mental illness that is characterized by an ongoing pattern of alternating moods, self-image, and behavior. BPD symptoms may include impulsive behavior, self harm, unstable moods, extreme emotions, stormy relationships, and other self harming behavior. BPD online therapy provides people with the opportunity to talk about their problems in detail without having to leave the comfort of their own home or interact with anyone they don’t want to.
According to the National Education Alliance for Borderline Personality Disorder, one in ten Americans suffers from BPD. The exact cause of BPD remains unknown at this time, but treatments include BPD therapy online via live chat sessions, individual psychotherapy, and group therapy sessions where you talk about your problems anonymously and receive peer support without feeling judged.
Mood and Anxiety Symptoms
Those living with BPD may experience intense episodes or chronic feelings of anger, anxiety, eating disorders, depression, self harm, unsafe sex, intense emotions, or self destructive behaviors that can last anywhere from a few hours to a few days. Borderline personality disorder can be hard to diagnose because the symptoms of BPD often mimic those of other mental health disorders, such as bipolar disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, anxiety disorders, depression, or other mental health issues and self harming behaviors. BPD is treatable through psychotherapy, medications, or a combination of both.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
There are various treatment options for BPD but Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is one of the most commonly used forms to treat BPD, and online therapy services make it easy to meet with mental health professionals from the comfort of your home and receive the proper treatment.
People with BPD are often very sensitive to what others think about them; therefore it’s important that online therapists only use evidence-based therapies, like CBT, in order for treatment to be effective. People who live with borderline personality disorder can lead healthy and productive lives if they seek out the right kind of help such as BDP (Borderline Personality Disorder) Therapy Online from a licensed therapist.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy
Research shows that Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is another effective treatment for BPD. A DBT therapist teaches you four skills to make your life better:
Mindfulness helps you focus on the present moment and accept yourself and your life circumstances with compassion.
Distress tolerance helps you get through challenging situations.
Emotion regulation, or Interpersonal Effectiveness,to help you better handle emotions such as anger, sadness, or feelings of abandonment.
Relationship skills help you set boundaries, communicate your needs, and build more supportive connections with others.
By using these skills you are able to develop your own self help strategies and build better relationships with family members, friends, and other people.
Because there is no best treatment for everyone, therapists may mix techniques from different therapies, or use a combination therapy.
