Many people do not like the 12-Step approach to addiction recovery and would prefer a different approach that focuses on changing the underlying emotions that fuel the addiction. Also, many people are not comfortable with a group therapy approach. There is often shame around addiction and people prefer an individualized approach where they can work one-on-one with a therapist. The choice of Online Therapy for Addictions can be far less intimidating and will likely be a very good addition to your progress with addiction recovery.

If you want to recover from an addiction you must heal the underlying psychological causes such as depression and low self-esteem

There is also a lot of interest in mindfulness-based therapies, which really are good at helping you work in a positive way with your emotions so that you can gain more control and balance in your life. Mindfulness teaches you how to work with the compulsive impulses of an addiction so that they don’t get the upper hand. This is a central focus in Online Addiction Counseling.

However, to fully recover from an addiction, you must also treat the underlying depression, guilt, stress or low self-esteem that lies at the core of your addiction. Many people feel a great sense of emptiness at the core of their being that they are trying to fill through the addictive high. But, of course, this temporary fix does nothing to heal the underlying pain. During Online Treatment for Addictions, we use mindfulness to transform and heal the core emotions that fuel your depression.

Mindfulness therapy is very effective because it works directly on helping you change the underlying habitual emotions that fuel addiction, whether it’s depression or stress or anxiety or or any other emotion. The primary problem is that that emotional energy feeds the compulsive impulses of the addiction. You have to change those underlying emotions in order to overcome addiction effectively.

Mindfulness is extremely good at doing this because it teaches you how to build a conscious relationship with your emotions. The real problem is that we fall into patterns of avoidance and aversion. We don’t like painful emotions, we try to get away from them. But in so doing you inadvertently feed those emotions and you prevent them from healing. It’s essential to develop a conscious and also a friendly relationship with your emotions if they are to heal.

You must transform the relationship that you have towards your painful emotions from one of avoidance and aversion to one of conscious engagement and friendliness.

I will teach you how to essentially meditate on your emotions: on the anxiety, the depression, the stress, whatever it might be. I will teach you how to develop and cultivate the right mindfulness relationship with your emotions that will promote healing.

You can practice this between sessions yourself. This is a life skill that I teach and it is, as I have said, very effective and probably the most direct approach there is for healing emotional suffering and for recovering from the various forms of behavioral reactivity such as addictions. So, please contact me to learn more about mindfulness therapy for help with recovery from your addiction.

In order to fully recover from alcohol addiction or any other addiction you will need to heal the emotions that drive the addiction. During these online therapy sessions we will focus on the two classes of emotions that need to change: the addictive compulsions and the underlying core emotions such as anxiety, depression or low self-esteem, that fuel the addictive cravings.

We need to transform and neutralize both the compulsive impulses of an addiction and the underlying unresolved core emotions that feed those impulses

Welcome! My name is Peter Strong and I am a professional online therapist. I offer online counseling via Skype for help with a range of emotional problems, anxiety, depression and emotional stress, and also for addictions.

The method that I use is called Mindfulness therapy, which is particularly effective for working with the difficult and powerful emotions that underlie most addictions. During these online therapy sessions, we focus on the two kinds of emotions that dominate most addictions, and especially alcohol addiction, and that is the compulsive-craving emotions themselves, and the underlying core emotions that fuel those addictive cravings. We must address both of these kind of classes of emotions if you are to fully recover and to prevent relapse.

So, mindfulness is very good for this purpose. It allows you to essentially form a stable relationship with your emotions in which you can learn how to experience the compulsion or the underlying core emotions without becoming overwhelmed.

The biggest problem we find is this habitual tendency to identify with our emotions. When we identify with them we become entrap by those emotions and then we become reactive and more or less lose control. So, mindfulness teaches us how to maintain balance in the face of these very emotions. When you learn how to do that then you begin to gain greater freedom from the emotions themselves, and if you can prevent yourself from becoming reactive towards these emotions or becoming identified with them, then that allows the emotions to begin to begin to change, to begin to transform and heal, and this is of course necessary for the recovery from addiction.

If you would like to learn more about Mindfulness Therapy for your addiction, or for your recovery from your alcohol addiction, please contact me and we can schedule a Skype therapy session.
