My passion, after struggling with anxiety myself in the past, is to make available to you the mindfulness methods that I have developed and found to work so well. I want to give you the tools that will allow you to not just learn how to manage your anxiety, but to heal the underlying psychological processes that cause your anxiety.
Mindfulness Therapy is immensely effective for healing anxiety, largely due to the focus on practical mindfulness-based methods that enable and empower you.

If you would like to speak with an online therapist, then visit my website to discover more about online therapy over Skype for eliminating chronic anxiety and excessive worrying, panic attacks, and chronic depression, help for recovery from an addiction, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Emotional Trauma and other varieties of emotional suffering not requiring medical treatment.
Standard counseling can be beneficial, but often common talk therapy does not alter the underlying psychological process that is the real cause of your depression or anxiety.
This also applies to the use of medications – the antidepressant may provide a temporary relief from symptoms for a while, but medications are not going to change the underlying process that produces the emotional pain.
The type of psychotherapy that I teach online is known as Mindfulness Therapy, which can be quite powerful for overcoming anxiety as well as for treating chronic depression or other emotional problems resulting from conditioned negative thinking. Most people see significant reduction in the level of anxiety and depression after the first couple of sessions of Mindfulness Therapy.

Online Therapist for Anxiety Disorders
Welcome. My name is Peter Strong and I provide online therapy for the treatment of anxiety and depression, OCD and many other common emotional psychological problems. As an online therapist for anxiety I specialize in teaching mindfulness skills for managing the anxiety and the reactive thinking that supports the anxiety.
Mindfulness therapy is extremely effective for helping you break free from those automatic habitual patterns of reactive thinking that fuel anxiety and panic attacks and other anxiety disorders. When we learn how to apply mindfulness we actually learn to sit with our emotions, we learn to meditate on our emotions. So, I will teach you exactly how to do this, how to sit with your anxiety, how to meditate on your anxiety, without becoming overwhelmed by it and without becoming reactive. This is the essential training that’s needed to change the habits of reactive anxiety.
The real problem is that we simply are not conscious of this habit of becoming caught up in reactive thinking we get lost in patterns of worrying, of rumination and excessive thinking, which simply feeds the anxiety. But with mindfulness training you learn how to become an observer. You learn how to sit with the emotions and with the thoughts without becoming lost in them, without becoming overwhelmed by them, without becoming essentially controlled by your emotions or your thoughts. This process it isn’t quite easy to learn if you get good guidance. You have to learn how to meditate on your emotions. Common mindfulness meditation practices usually involve meditating on the breath and this is a good relaxation exercise, but it will not really help you with your anxiety.
You have to meditate on the cause of your anxiety, which is your relationship to your emotions and your thoughts. If that relationship is unconscious then your emotions and thoughts will govern you, you will be controlled by them. They’ll be little choice.
But once you start to develop more consciousness around the anxiety and the thoughts then you begin to break free from them. You begin to neutralize the effects of emotions and thoughts on you.
If you’d like to learn more about mindfulness therapy and you’d like to schedule a session with me as an Online Therapist for anxiety to help you, then please go to my website and send me an email, and we can schedule Skype therapy session at a time that works for you.
Online anxiety therapy is extremely effective. Most people can expect to see significant improvements after the first three to four sessions. I will teach you mindfulness techniques that you can use at home between sessions, and in this way you will gain more and more experience and confidence in the mindfulness approach for healing anxiety. Please e-mail me now to schedule an online therapy session. Thank you.
What You Need to Know About Benzodiazepines & Other Anxiety Drugs
Take a moment to read this article about ant-anxiety medications: https://www.helpguide.org/articles/anxiety/anxiety-medication.htm
Anxiety medications can ease symptoms, but they’re not right for everyone and they’re not the only answer. It’s up to you to evaluate your options and decide what’s best for you.
Benzodiazepines (also known as tranquilizers) are the most widely prescribed type of medication for anxiety. Because they work quickly—typically bringing relief within 30 minutes to an hour—they’re very effective when taken during a panic attack or another overwhelming anxiety episode. However, they are physically addictive and not recommended for long-term treatment.
SSRI antidepressants for anxiety
Although physical dependence is not as quick to develop with antidepressants, withdrawal can still be an issue. If discontinued too quickly, antidepressant withdrawal can trigger symptoms such as extreme depression and fatigue, irritability, anxiety, flu-like symptoms, and insomnia.

Mindfulness Therapy Online for Anxiety & Depression
My specialty is Mindfulness Therapy, which works extremely well online via Skype. The focus of Mindfulness Therapy is to help you change the way you relate to your emotions so that you stop becoming a victim of the reactivity that creates so much suffering. We have to learn how to “sit” with our emotions without becoming reactive or consumed by them. It is only then, when you have a non-reactive relationship with the emotion that it can begin to change. This powerful mindfulness practice is one of the best approaches available for overcoming anxiety and depression. It is all about stopping the cycle of reactivity that feeds anxiety, depression and other forms of emotional stress.

Do you feel stuck and unable to get beyond anxiety, depression and traumatic memories? Do you feel a victim of your emotions?
Intense emotions resulting from childhood trauma, personal loss or a recent traumatic experience have a tendency to become stuck in the deep recesses of the mind where they continue to ferment and generate recurring anxiety and patterns of negative thinking. These core emotions can have a severe impact on the quality of our lives and our relationships. Core complexes contain emotional energy that has become trapped and frozen in place, unable to change and resolve, internal generators of suffering. We may be plagued by guilt or regret or a feeling of great hurt and inner wounding that just won’t go away. We become victims of our inner emotions and prisoners of our conditioned habitual reactivity. These patterns of inner suffering become established as habitual patterns of reactivity that affect our thinking, our inner beliefs and perceptions of the world. The world is seen as a hostile place and we feel overwhelmed, fatigued, negative and empty.
So, how do we go about changing this less than satisfactory state of existence? How do we break free from being a victim of our patterns of habitual emotional reactivity? How can we restore balance and heal the wounds that cut so deep?
The Power of Mindfulness
I believe, as a practitioner of mindfulness-based psychotherapy, that all successful forms psychotherapy and spiritual practice are based on one fundamental principle, and this is the principle of engaged-presence. We must begin our journey of inner transformation by establishing a profound level of relationship with the inner suffering, hurt and wounded parts of our psyche, and this relationship should be based on genuine care, openness, and non-reactivity. All our activities must be channelled into this one end, to be able to sit down with our pain and care for it with the same level of attention and love that a mother gives to her baby. This is what we mean by engaged-presence, or mindfulness.
Mindfulness is an ancient practice, and central to all the teachings of the Buddha, in which we let go of doing and reacting, thinking and trying to fix things, and simply sit with each of our emotions with a mind that is open, caring and genuinely interested in the subtleties of an emotional complex. It is a central tenet in Mindfulness Psychotherapy that what keeps emotional suffering and anxiety alive is our inattention or un-mindfulness, also simply called ignorance. We suffer from our pain day in day out, but never really take the time to simply be with our pain, observing it, gently massaging it with the love of pure undivided attention.
There is a growing awareness of the prime importance of this quality of mindful-attention. Its not about analyzing the problem, not about trying to change negative beliefs, not about fixing things, but about creating a safe space around the suffering that gives it a chance to move, unfold and change in its own unique way, free from the interference of the ego-directed thinking mind. Trying to fix things externally can only be partially successful if done in isolation. We need to heal at the core, and this means allowing changes to arise from the intuitive level, a much more sensitive level than provided by the ego and thinking mind. After all, the problems of inner conflict and disharmony are largely a product of the ego trying to control emotional suffering through the ego-reactions of repression, diversion and avoidance. It is a far better practice to first establish a foundation of stillness and inner listening at a deeper and intuitive level, a foundation in the fertile ground of mindfulness and allow action, new beliefs and insights to arise from this solid foundation.
Everyone knows the importance of facing our emotions directly and getting in touch with our feelings. But what does this mean in practice, and how do we do it?
Every emotion can be seen as a mental object, something that arises in the mind and has a certain life of its own. We get a sense of the anxiety or depression or fear as being a part of our mind: an inner child, a judgemental parent, or simply as an object with a certain shape and color. Frequently these inner mental objects can be felt to reside in a particular part of the body – the heart, neck or stomach. Most seem to occur in a specific position in your inner visual screen, perhaps to the left or right, or in front of you.
Take the time to focus your mindfulness inwardly and see if you can get a sense of your emotional objects, whether anxiety, anger or guilt. Every inner part, every emotion has a certain aura, a felt-sense that surrounds it. Mindfulness helps us detect this, as well as detecting our habitual tendencies to react to the emotion or traumatic memory.
Another essential tenet of Mindfulness Meditation, and this is what you are doing when you focus mindfulness on an emotion, is to learn how to respond to these reactions, the fear of the emotion, the tendency to get lost in thinking, in self-judgement and inner dialogue. The critical point to understand is that these reactions can also be seen as mental objects, to be related to in exactly the same way – with mindfulness. One of the things that makes mindfulness quite special, and different from general attention or awareness, is that nothing is excluded when we are cultivating a relationship based on mindfulness. We make room for our emotional object as well as our reactions to that emotion; there’s plenty of space for all.
The consequence of establishing a mindfulness-based relationship with your inner emotional suffering is that it stops the cycle of reactivity and opens up a space, a therapeutic space, and it is in this space that emotional suffering begins to unfold and change. It’s rather like massaging the sore parts of the mind with mindfulness. Every time you touch suffering with mindfulness, it responds by healing. The more you massage it with mindfulness, the more it will heal.
Practice focusing on your pain and saying, “I see you. Welcome. I promise you that I am going to be with you and give you 100% of my attention.” Each moment of mindful-contact heals. It breathes warmth into those parts that are frozen. It softens those parts that have become contracted and contorted into tortured forms. It envelops suffering in the healing space of inner freedom and care that is the expression of genuine love.
Practice this way of relating to your anxiety, depression, grief or trauma a hundred times a day and see for yourself if this doesn’t have a beneficial healing effect. Quite different to our usual mechanical reactivity in which we run away from our pain, or the pain of others. Quite different to becoming lost in thinking. The purpose of mindfulness meditation on emotions is not to re-experience the emotion or traumatic memory, but learn how to experience them differently, as parts of yourself that require your attention and love. Love that you give through being there for your emotions, being present, being engaged with your suffering. That quality of being present is a movement in stillness, not words and thinking, but listening fully with a mind that cares and is open to every tiny movement. You learn to hold your emotion in the cradle of mindfulness.
If you tune in to your emotions in this way and listen, they will respond by releasing their iron-grip on you. If you learn to love your pain in this way, your pain will reward you by releasing trapped emotional energy, and make it free to re-assimilate back into the psyche where it can do good and breath life and vitality back into your being. It may seem strange, but in essence, if you give your emotional suffering space, it will respond by transforming and resolving in direct proportion. If you allow it to heal, it will heal. The only thing that stops our suffering from healing is our reactivity, our un-mindfulness and ignorance. This habit can be undone right now by learning to greet each emotion, each reaction, each thought and memory as an object to which we can relate with mindfulness, with full engaged-presence. Give it a try. Give your emotions a massage – the massage of mindfulness

The Structure of Anxiety
Anxiety and depression affect most of us at some time in our lives. For many, and estimates vary from 10-50%, these powerful emotions can take hold and reduce our happiness and vitality, leaving us feeling fatigued and fearful. We become the victims of these emotions.
All emotions are created around a complex network of negative beliefs and negative patterns of thinking that we acquire over the years that become the prison bars that keep us penned up and suffering. The first part of making a change for the better is learning to recognize these negative patterns of habitual reactivity. Most of the time we aren’t aware of these reactions when they arise – we just react out of habit. We tend to blindly accept the reactions as inevitable, the way things are. This provides our first challenge, right here. We have to break out of this delusion and understand that we are not the thoughts and emotions that arise in the mind; they are simply mind objects that arise due to conditions. Therefore, the first step in developing the art of recognizing our reactivity is to look at the reactions, emotions, worries and other negative thoughts as objects. We need to learn to look at these internal mental objects the same way that we might look at a table, a chair, a picture, or any other external object around us.
In fact, this is the first step in cultivating mindfulness meditation that we can practice right now. Settle into your chair, take a moment to relax your body and mind and start observing the objects around you. Pick an object and examine its details. Note how you can observe the object as it is: it exists in its space, and you exist as the observer, observing that object. You don’t have to react to the object, and the object has no power over you. In other words you have a very spacious and open relationship with the object, without any overlay of reactivity. This is the nature of mindfulness and with careful practice you can develop this same kind of mindful relationship with your thoughts and emotions.
This is where mindfulness becomes an invaluable tool for both the client and the therapist. Mindfulness is defined as the non-reactive present-centered awareness of an experience. It is the art of sensitive listening, being fully present and receptive to whatever is being experienced. In Mindfulness Meditation Therapy, mindfulness is applied directly to the felt-sense of the emotion to cultivate this quality of presence. We choose to make the emotion the primary object of our meditation and our task is to develop a relationship with the emotion, with the anger or fear in which we can observe the emotion and allow the emotion to unfold. The purpose of cultivating the mindfulness-based relationship is so that we can move from the superficial surface structure of the emotion to the deep internal structure and reveal the subtle internal structure.
As we all know, it is what we don’t see that has the greatest power over us, and this is exactly what happens with anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress and anxiety. Through the mindfulness-based relationship that we cultivate with our inner emotional pain, we effectively allow it to change and witnessing this change is the essential part of the transformational process.
Online Therapy for Anxiety via Skype – A Better Choice for Treating Anxiety
Online Counseling Therapy via Skype is becoming very popular for treating anxiety, depression and stress. Dr Strong is a professional psychotherapist who provides an Online Counseling Service through Skype to help you work on the specific emotional problems that you may be struggling with.
The convenience of the online therapy option is certainly one of the main reasons why people choose this counseling service, but the other reason is that many people are also looking for an alternative to the older style “talking therapies” and want a form of therapy that focuses on changing the underlying process that creates your anxiety, rather than just treating and talking about the symptoms.
Mindfulness Therapy is certainly a more holistic and positive alternative for many, with its focus on teaching you practical mindfulness-based skills for working with anxiety.
As an online therapist, I teach you how to change your relationship to your anxiety so that it ceases to overwhelm you. This is the first step – learning how to become less reactive; because it is that reactivity that feeds your anxiety more than anything. Stop reacting to the anxiety and you stop feeding it and then it has to change.
Healing anxiety is a process of changing your relationship to the anxiety from aversion and avoidance to friendliness and awareness. The more you cultivate true presence with your anxiety or other emotions, the more they will heal.
Online Counseling Therapy for Anxiety via Skype
Welcome! My name is Doctor Peter Strong and I am a psychotherapist and I provide Online Counseling for anxiety. This is becoming a very popular option these days and more and more people are turning to Online Counseling as a way of working with anxiety, depression and stress. Of course, it is not always suitable for people who have an underlying medical condition – they should always consult their MD. But, for many of the general emotional difficulties that we experience, as part of life, as part of the difficulties and stresses of living, Online Counseling can provide a very good service.
The ways that Online Counseling has been used in the past includes phone counseling, which has been around for many, many years, email counseling more recently, and now we can have face-to-face counseling through Skype. This is a very popular service, and I am finding that more and more of my clients are choosing this service because of its convenience.
How to start online counseling and therapy
It is very easy to get started. All you need to do is download Skype, of course Skype is a free service at present, and you need also, PayPal to make secure online payments.
So, if you are struggling with anxiety and don’t want to add to the struggle by trying to find a local therapist, or perhaps there isn’t a local therapist that you want to work with, the try Online Counseling. It’s definitely worth trying.
When you are selecting an Online Counselor, make sure you feel comfortable with them, that they answer your questions, and generally try to avoid those that ask for upfront payments. You want to experience a session first and then if you like it, then have the option to pay.
When we are working with anxiety, the system that I teach is called Mindfulness Therapy, which works extremely well. This is a form, a modern form, of Cognitive Therapy. And, what I like to focus on is changing the underlying patterns of negative thinking and beliefs and emotional reactions that continue our patterns of anxiety, depression and stress.

How to Overcome Anxiety and Panic Attacks – Online Mindfulness Therapy
Let me answer your questions about psychotherapy via Skype, and when you feel ready, you can schedule an online therapy session with me.
If you would like to talk with a therapist online, then please contact me to learn about Online Psychological counseling via Skype for eliminating chronic anxiety and excessive worrying and depression, help for recovery from an addiction, OCD, PTSD, Emotional Trauma and other varieties of psychological suffering not requiring medical treatment.
Traditional counseling can be beneficial, but often it does not change the habitual psychological process that creates your emotional suffering.
The same can be said for medications – the anti-anxiety medication may relieve symptoms for a while, but medications are not going to transform the underlying psychological process that produces your anxiety or depression.
The style of psychotherapy that I offer is called Mindfulness Therapy, which is extremely powerful for eliminating chronic anxiety and for treating chronic depression and other common psychological problems caused by conditioned reactive thinking. Most of my clients experience quite dramatic changes after the first couple of sessions of Skype Therapy.
Welcome. My name is Peter Strong, and I am a professional mindfulness-based therapist. If you would like to learn how to overcome anxiety and panic attacks, simply go to my website and learn more about Mindfulness Therapy and how it can help you control anxiety and reduce panic attacks.
The most important thing that you will be learning during the online sessions with me is how to break the habit of reacting to the anxiety or to the physical sensations, the tightness in the chest, the shallow breathing and so on that accompanies anxiety and panic.
The real problem is this reactivity: the reactivity to the emotions and to the physical sensations that accompany those emotions. This reactivity has the effect of feeding the anxiety; it makes it stronger. It prevents the anxiety from healing or changing or resolving itself.
I would say one of the most important things to learn is how to break this habit of reacting to your anxiety or the physical sensations that accompany the anxiety. And, that is what I will be teaching you. During the first two or three sessions you will learn very effective ways of doing this.
We call this, learning to sit with your anxiety without reacting. When you do this, it is rather like sitting by a fire without feeding the fire with wood. If you don’t feed a fire with fuel then the fire will burn itself out, it will essentially extinguish itself. It is exactly the same with our emotions. If we stop feeding them through reactive thinking and reactive behaviors then the emotions will begin to resolve themselves. They begin to settle down and change quite significantly.
So, this is the most important thing. We have to learn how to stop feeding the fire of our anxiety.
If you would like to learn more about this approach, do please go to my website and then email me and we can schedule a Skype therapy session, and you will see for yourself just how effective this mindfulness approach can be for overcoming anxiety and panic attacks. Thank you.

Online Anxiety Therapy – Online Therapy for Anxiety
How to Control Anxiety through Online Mindfulness Therapy via Skype
Mindfulness-based Anxiety Therapy Online via Skype teaches us how to change the way we relate to our emotions, thoughts, beliefs and memories. We learn how to become less reactive and more responsive.
The first step is in simply learning to recognize when a painful thought or emotion has arisen and then learn how to greet that thought with a simple acknowledgement. What we are trying to do is counteract our habitual tendency to identify with the objects of mind. When you identify with an emotion you essentially become the emotion, the anxiety, and then it begins to proliferate and generate suffering. The spark turns into a forest fire, the suffering associated with excessive and prolonged worry and catastrophic thinking. This can be prevented through this simple practice of mindful recognition.
The second step in Mindfulness-based Online Therapy for Anxiety is to build a relationship with your emotions, with the anxiety, that is based on awareness and friendship. If you fight your anxiety, or even try to convince yourself that you shouldn’t be feeling anxious, then the anxiety simply gets stronger. Aversion is not the way; Avoidance is not the way.
Mindfulness teaches us HOW to be present with our anxiety in a way that facilitates healing and transformation, and this is through the quality of friendship that you establish with your painful emotions.

How to Overcome Anxiety – Online Mindfulness Therapy for Anxiety
ONLINE THERAPY FOR ANXIETY
This video introduces you to this anxiety counseling online service that provides personal Skype session with Dr. Peter Strong, expert therapist, teacher and author. Mindfulness Therapy is one of the most effective treatments for anxiety disorders, including Panic Anxiety Disorder and Generalized Anxiety Disorder.
Welcome! my name is Peter Strong, and I am a professional psychotherapist. I live in Boulder, Colorado, and I offer Online Therapy via Skype. This is a very convenient way of getting help for overcoming anxiety, or depression or any other emotional problems that you may be experiencing.
Now, how to overcome anxiety? This is a challenge for many people. The number of people suffering from anxiety is very large indeed, so you are not alone if you are experiencing anxiety and if you are seeking help to overcome your anxiety. You can learn a great deal about how to work with anxiety and how to overcome anxiety and panic attacks by visiting my website – the link is below.
The thing that I would like to explain to you today is how we can use mindfulness, Mindfulness Therapy, for overcoming anxiety. Mindfulness Therapy is my specialty, and is what I write about in my book, The Path of Mindfulness Meditation, and it is a very, very effective way of working with anxiety disorders of all kinds.
The major issue that people experience when they are suffering from anxiety is this habitual tendency to become identified with thoughts and emotions. Thoughts and emotions arise due to conditions, it’s just part of our conditioning, and anxiety thoughts and anxiety emotions are no different. We learn these particular patterns of responding, reacting, to situations whether externally or to stimuli coming internally in the form of thoughts and memories.
Now, just because a thought or memory arise in the mind does not mean that we have to become anxious. that is the result of this process of identification, where we literally become the thought or emotion or memory that arises. Now, a large part of Mindfulness Therapy is learning how to break this habit of becoming, this habit of reactive identification with thoughts and emotions. Because, if you can stop the process of becoming identified with the contents of your mind, then you stop feeding the anxiety reactivity itself. And, if you don’t feed the anxiety, it will begin to change, also by itself.
The main problem is reactivity, and mindfulness is perhaps the most skillful therapeutic method there is for learning how to break this cycle of reactivity, by developing awareness and by developing compassion. Compassion, of course, is the greatest healing force for mental suffering.
So, if you would like to learn more about Mindfulness Therapy, which I offer Online via Skype, please visit my website and CONTACT ME! Thank you!
How to Overcome Anxiety & Depression without medications
The most effective way to overcome anxiety and depression is to break free from the underlying habitual reactive thinking that fuels your anxiety or depression. This is precisely what we focus on during online therapy sessions. It is very effective and most people see significant improvements after 2-3 sessions. Medications only provide temporary relief from the symptoms, but do not change the underlying cause; Mindfulness Therapy does change the underlying process that causes anxiety and depression and that is why it is so effective for producing lasting changes.
Welcome! My name is Peter Strong and I am a professional therapist. I provide online therapy via Skype for the treatment of anxiety disorders, panic attacks, depression and other emotional problems. If you would like to learn more about how to overcome your anxiety without the use of medications, please visit my website and email me and then we can schedule a session.
The treatment of anxiety typically involves the prescription of medications, but that only treats the symptoms of anxiety or panic attacks, it does not treat the underlying cause, and that’s what I try to address in these online therapy sessions that I provide via Skype.
You need to change the pattern of reactive thinking that fuels the anxiety process, and this is what we work on during mindfulness therapy online. You have to learn how to actually embrace your thoughts and emotions using mindfulness. If you react to your thoughts or emotions with some form of aversion or avoidance, that will simply make the anxiety stronger. What really works is when you learn to embrace your anxiety with conscious awareness and a quality of friendship that comes along with that conscious awareness. This really starts the process of change.
So, please, if you would like to learn more about how to overcome anxiety without the use of medications, or without endless sessions of counseling and talk therapy, please contact me and let’s discuss this in more detail. Thank you!

This means looking at the underlying structure of your emotions. What do I mean by the structure of emotions? Well, every emotion is associated with some form of underlying imagery. An emotion is created by the way that we see the emotion or thought in the mind.
If, for example that imagery is very large then that will produce very intense feelings. If the imagery is positioned above us in our inner psychological space then we will feel overwhelmed. That’s why we use terms like feeling overwhelmed or feeling that your emotions are getting on top of you, feeling weighed down by your anxiety or depression, etc. These are visual phrases referring to a visual psychological process.
So, this is a very important area that we explore during Mindfulness Therapy sessions. We want to see this imagery, because when you can find out more about the structure of that imagery then you have choices, then you can begin to change that imagery in a direction that leads to change in the emotion.
When you change the imagery you change the emotion.
Then you can literally feel that you are getting on top of the situation, you are getting on top of your emotions, because we see our self on top of the emotion. That is exactly what is happening psychologically. Now we can take charge of that process by bringing mindful concentration and conscious awareness to examine the structure of our emotions.
So, this is one part of the mindfulness-based online therapy that I offer for the treatment of anxiety disorders.
Another part of the mindfulness therapy process is learning how to change your relationship to your emotions, entirely, so that you are not compelled to identify with those emotions and become a prisoner of the emotions that get triggered. It is learning to break free from those emotional habits and this is made possible more consciousness of those habits. the more you illuminate emotional habits, the less power they have, the more the imagery will change, and the more you will feel the sense of choice, of freedom in relationship to those emotions.
So, those are two of the processes that we explore during mindfulness therapy, and each of these sessions can be very powerful, indeed, in helping you fundamentally change the inner landscape of your emotions.

How to stop anxiety thoughts through Online Mindfulness Therapy
Welcome. My name is Peter Strong and I’m a professional mindfulness based psychotherapist and I offer online therapy for anxiety via Skype. I’m often asked how to overcome anxiety thoughts, how to stop anxiety thoughts from controlling your life. This is a very interesting area because for most people their first reaction is to simply try to remove the thoughts by a process of resistance and aversion. Just do not think about those thoughts and they will go away. This this kind of reaction of aversion to thoughts is very common. And another approach that’s also equally common is one of distraction. Simply distract yourself from the unpleasant anxiety producing thoughts so you don’t think those thoughts and focus on positive thoughts and that will make them stop. But, in my experience these approaches of avoidance and aversion just don’t work. You cannot stop anxiety thoughts by trying to fight against them or trying to distract yourself away from them by positive thinking or other means.
A much, much more successful approach is one of learning how to change your relationship to these thoughts. The best way to stop anxiety thoughts is to actually make friends with them, to bring them into the mind as welcome guests and change your relationship to them, from one of aversion to one friendliness. When you develop friendliness in the mind it essentially makes you bigger and the thoughts. It helps change the balance of power. If you fight thoughts it makes you smaller than the thoughts so that they tend to have more power. So that’s why aversion doesn’t really work very well and avoidance is just simply another form of aversion.
If you really want to change anxiety thoughts the best thing is to invite them in but then sit with those thoughts with mindfulness, with a quality of mind that is non-reactive, that is conscious and friendlily. Non-reactivity is the solution here. If you stop reacting to those anxiety thoughts they will lose that power and burn themselves out and eventually they will stop arising at all. So this is what we learn during the mindfulness training that I offer online. It is how exactly to do this: how to change your relationship to your thoughts so that you’re not fighting them and that you’re not avoiding them, but you’re actually putting your efforts into changing your relationship to your thoughts so that you have the power, and the thoughts to not have the power to control you.
This approach of mindfulness is extremely effective. It’s quite easy to do. It just takes a little bit of guidance and I will show you how to do this during the online therapy sessions. So if you’d like to learn how to stop anxiety thoughts and how to free yourself from anxiety panic attacks, as well, then please go to my web site. Learn more about mindfulness therapy for anxiety. And then e-mail me and we can schedule a therapy session over Skype at a time that works for you. And even after the first session of learning how to work with anxiety thoughts. I think you’ll see some tremendous improvements. Most clients see quite dramatic improvements after the first three or four sessions of practicing the mindfulness techniques that I teach. So, please email me if you’re interested and I would like to schedule a Skype therapy session with me. Thank you.
Overcoming Anxiety with Mindfulness
Welcome. My name is Peter Strong and I’m a professional online therapist and I specialize in mindfulness therapy for anxiety and depression.
Overcoming anxiety through mindfulness is a very effective approach and it is often quite easy to get established in a practice where you learn how to apply mindfulness to overcome your anxiety or panic attacks and this is what I teach during online therapy sessions, which I offer via Skype.
If you’re interested in learning how to overcome anxiety or depression using mindfulness then please go to my website and send me an email and I’ll be happy to answer any questions you have and to get started with mindfulness-based therapy.
The most important thing we learn when we’re applying mindfulness to overcome anxiety is to change our relationship to our anxiety and also to the thoughts that feed that anxiety. Typically people have a very unconscious relationship, a very habitual relationship with their anxiety. They tend to identify with it. They tend to react to it with avoidance or some form of aversion, self-criticism, self-hatred for having anxiety. These kind of reactions, these habitual forms of reactivity, have the undesired effect of strengthening the anxiety. So to overcome anxiety you need to change your relationship to these emotions and to the thoughts that support these emotions, and we learn how to do that during mindfulness training. We learn how to sit with our emotions and with our thoughts without reacting. That is the key first principle of mindfulness therapy and training.
We actually learn how to meditate on our anxiety and this is what makes the difference. When you learn to develop a non-reactive relationship with your emotions, that effectively creates the right conditions whereby they start to heal.
But we take it further than that because mindfulness is not just about becoming more aware and less reactive. It’s also about developing a level of friendliness or love towards your own emotions and thoughts. Love is a very powerful healing force and when you can actually make friends with your emotions then you will increase the rate of healing by a huge factor.
So if you’re interested in learning more about how to apply mindfulness and mindfulness meditation for healing anxiety or depression, for overcoming painful emotions, then please go to my website and send me an email and we can schedule a therapy session via Skype, in which I will teach you how to work with your emotions using mindfulness. Thank you.
How to overcome anxiety using mindfulness – Mindfulness Meditation Therapy
Welcome. My name is Peter Strong and I specialize in online mindfulness therapy for anxiety and depression. If you’d like to learn how to use mindfulness to overcome anxiety or depression do please go to my website and learn more about the mindfulness therapy for anxiety and depression approach that I teach.
Please email me if you’d like to schedule a Skype therapy session.
I will teach you how to apply mindfulness to overcome anxiety. This approach is very very effective. It’s designed to teach you mindfulness-based methods for working with reactive thoughts and with your emotions themselves. We have to learn how to control habitual reactive thinking because that’s one of the main factors that fuels anxiety.
So that’s very important, but we also use mindfulness to work on the emotions themselves. You learn to meditate on your anxiety. This is the most effective way to heal the anxiety. We don’t want to just put up with it. We don’t want to indulge it. We want to heal it and there’s no better method than learning how to meditate on your anxiety. So I’ll teach you how to do that during these online therapy sessions.
How can I overcome anxiety without medication?
Welcome. My name is Peter Strong and I’m a professional mindfulness therapist offering mindfulness therapy online for the treatment of anxiety and depression and other emotional problems. If you’d like to learn how to overcome anxiety without medication then I can definitely help you through these online sessions.
Mindfulness therapy teaches us that the prime cause of anxiety is the way that we identify with our emotions and with our thoughts. So what happens is that an emotional reaction gets triggered by triggers, which could be thoughts, they could be external events as a driving anxiety. It could be all range of factors: it could be physical sensations experienced in the body. These are triggers and what the trigger is an eventual emotional reaction. That is psychological and that habitual psychological reaction then triggers reactive thinking and behavioral reactivity, such as avoidance strategies. It also triggers bodily reactions, such as increased heart rate, increased perspiration, reddening of the face, and other common physical sensations associated with anxiety.
These reactions in turn trigger and feed the underlying emotional reaction and so it becomes a vicious circle. The secret is to really learn how to break this this reactive habit, this cycle in which one part triggers another part creating that anxiety. You need to learn for example to be able to isolate the triggers and see triggers without blindly reacting emotionally. We need to be able to see the emotional reactions and hold them in conscious awareness without allowing them to trigger thought reactions, and so on.
And we need to be able to also develop conscious awareness of body sensations that are produced by the anxiety without reacting to those physical sensations in the body with catastrophic thinking and other forms of emotional reaction.
So once we can start to separate these different elements and start to dis-identify from them then we can break the habit that creates the anxiety and feeds it. And once you start feeding the anxiety then the anxiety reaction itself, the emotional reaction, will begin to subside and eventually it will be eliminated or reduced to a normal level.
So this is the subject of mindfulness therapy, we learn how to identify the triggers, the emotional reactions, the thought reactions, the behavioral reactions, and the bodily reactions. We learn to separate each one from the others so that we can break this reactive cycle.
It’s quite easy actually to do. The real problem is that we have never done this before. Most people have never really thought to look at the elements of their emotional reactivity, they just blindly identify with them. But there is, as we say in mindfulness therapy, there is no law that says you have to react in a certain way. The reactions are habits and habits are a product of blindness, of not being seen, as much as anything else.
So if you’d like to learn more about how to overcome anxiety without using medication, then please e-mail me and we can schedule a Skype therapy session at a time that works for you, and I’ll begin teaching you the practical ways of managing your emotional reactivity. So I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.
How to overcome anxiety disorder without medication
My name is Peter Strong and I provide online therapy for anxiety and other emotional problems that don’t require medical treatments. So if you’d like to learn how to overcome anxiety disorder without medication then please go to my website and learn more about this online therapy service.
I teach mindfulness therapy as a way of working with the underlying psychological process that causes anxiety disorders. Essentially we have to change the underlying emotional habits, the blind reactive hobbits by which we become identified with the emotional reaction to triggers. Triggers could be events, it could be social interactions, it could be driving a car, it could be thoughts. Whatever the trigger, the effect is that it triggers this internal psychological reaction, and it’s a conditioned process, that is, it happens unconsciously without us being aware of of what’s happening.
So the first part of mindfulness therapy is about uncovering these unconscious habits by which we, if you like, fall into the trap of becoming reactive and suffering with anxiety or depression. So this is the most important thing, we have to uncover these habits and mindfulness provides a very, very effective way of doing this. Mindfulness is really a form of consciousness that we apply to the emotional habits that are causing problems for us.
We learn to, essentially, meditate on our anxiety and on the triggers that promote that anxiety. We focused conscious awareness on them, and then when we make them conscious then we can bring in the element of choice. We can begin to counter that habitual reaction to those triggers, and through time we we can desensitize ourselves, we can neutralize that habitual reaction, altogether, so that you can be in the anxiety producing situation without being overwhelmed by anxiety. So, this is what we explore during mindfulness therapy sessions and I will teach you practical mindfulness-based methods for working with your emotional reactions so that you can break free from them.
It’s quite effective, and most people see dramatic changes to three to four sessions of mindfulness therapy once they start to really become more conscious of these emotional habits.
If you’d to learn more about how to overcome anxiety disorder without using medication, then please do go to my website. Learn more about this service, and then simply reach out to me, e-mail me and tell me about yourself and I’ll be happy to explain to you how mindfulness therapy works, and we can schedule the trial therapy session using Skype.

How to Overcome Anxiety and Panic Attacks Without using Medication
Medications may provide temporary relief from the intense emotional and physical symptoms of anxiety and panic attacks but medications do very little to change the underlying psychological cause of your anxiety. That underlying cause is mostly a product of unresolved emotional trauma and habitual reactive thinking that feeds the anxiety. We must change these causes to successfully recover from anxiety and panic attacks as well as depression and other forms of emotional suffering.
Welcome. My name is Peter Strong and I am a professional psychotherapist based in Colorado and I specialize in mindfulness therapy which I offer online for the treatment of anxiety disorders, depression, addictions, and PTSD (that’s one of my particular interests) and many other psychological emotional-problems that are caused by reactive habitual thinking or unresolved emotional trauma.
If you would like to learn how to overcome anxiety and panic attacks through online therapy and you would like to learn how to overcome anxiety disorders without using medications, then please go to my website and learn more about online mindfulness therapy. In my opinion this is one of the most effective ways of treating anxiety without using medication.
It works on changing the underlying cause of your anxiety and panic attacks, as well as depression or other emotional conditions. That underlying cause is what needs to be transformed and healed if you want to really recover from anxiety or panic attacks.
Medications don’t treat anxiety and panic attacks. They only relieve symptoms and that symptom relief is short term. It’s just a bandaid. It’s not really changing the underlying psychological cause of your anxiety or panic attacks.
So, in mindfulness therapy we recognize that the key to overcoming any emotional suffering is to actually develop a conscious and friendly relationship with your emotional pain. Your biggest enemies are avoidance and aversion. When there is avoidance, that basically causes the anxiety to get bigger. When there is aversion, that causes you to get smaller in relationship to your anxiety.
So this is why we understand in mindfulness teachings the importance of friendliness or love, because when you relate to emotional suffering with love you get bigger and the emotion gets smaller, it actually starts to heal itself, when that relationship is well established.
So, the path to healing anxiety and panic attacks, also depression and other forms of emotional trauma, is to build a very strong friendly and non-reactive relationship with those underlying emotions. When you do that you create the right internal conditions that promote healing, and that healing is a natural process that is built in to the anxiety or the depression. It is already trying to heal itself to come back to equilibrium. Unfortunately we tend to get in the way of the natural healing through reactivity such as avoidance and aversion.
So if you would like to learn how to use mindfulness to overcome anxiety and you’d like to learn about mindfulness meditation for anxiety, please email me to schedule a session.
