A Bipolar Journey: Navigating Choppy Waters

A Bipolar Journey: Navigating Choppy Waters

NB: During the welcome to this episode of The Different Stories Podcast and during the conversation itself, you will hear it referred to as The Other Stories Podcast.

That was the original name of the podcast until we were requested to change it in November 2023, due to the presence of another podcast of the same name, of a completely different genre.

The podcast is now known as The Different Stories Podcast across all platforms.


Because Catherine Stratta was ‘doing alright’ at school and then at medical school, her periods of depression were thought to be nothing more than normal hormonal issues. In this episode she shares her story of how her eventual diagnosis gradually allowed her to feel able to open up about her disorder. That opening up has bought into her strengths and helped her find her sense of purpose. With that comes a sense of peace and stability and it now gives her joy to be able to give her clients some of that too.
