Our expert says:
Psychotherapy could indeed help, but best step first would be to see your psychiatrist who diagnosed you as Bipolar, and discuss this new symptom, for re-assessment and reconsideration off whatever other treatment you may be receiving. The intrusive thoughts, and now these partly involuntary movements don't sound typical of Bipolar Disorder, and may need a revision of diagnosis and treatment. Fortunately, while you may feel awfully embarrassed if you catch yourself doing this in public, other people probably either don't notice it at all, or only notice your distress.
