One of my online clients, a woman in her late 30s seldom moved out of the safety zone of her home because she was convinced that something terrible would happen and there would be no one there to help her. This sense of intense isolation and fear of being alone is an ironical side to a behavioral disorder that produces just that – isolation and loneliness. Many sufferers from social anxiety have very low self-confidence and even lower self-esteem. They are imprisoned by negative beliefs about themselves in which they are unable to cope with change. Not only change of location, but change of routine or anything, which can be described as the familiar rhythm to their lives.

In terms of the emotional reactivity, those with social anxiety disorders experience what can best be described as an inner contraction of emotional energy. The anxiety contracts and concentrates into a tight focal point, usually centered on a thought or a belief. This of course is the driving emotional energy that can lead to a panic attack, which can be described as an explosion of anxiety, leading to very erratic behavior. This is what many sufferers are most afraid of – this runaway and uncontrollable behavior.

Over the years, I have been studying this contraction process and have found that mindfulness to be extremely effective as an antidote. Mindfulness, by its very nature is an expansion of consciousness and so admirably counteracts the contraction of consciousness associated with emotional reactivity. There are many ways that mindfulness can help with anxiety disorders. The first and most basic skill is simply learning to awaken to the inner reactive thinking as it arises. This simple process of recognition can and does make all the difference. In my book, The Path of Mindfulness Meditation, I describe this as one of the 3 R’s of mindfulness practice: Recognition, Relationship, Resolution. If a person can learn to recognize his habitual reactive thoughts as they arise, then a moment of choice opens up. If he remains blind, then nothing can change.

When the lady mentioned above took on mindfulness training with me, she soon learned to catch these reactive thoughts. Actually, after awhile, it became a game for her and for once in a very long time she felt that she had some control. This is one of the immediate benefits of mindfulness therapy – clients quickly shift out of being the victim to being empowered. For an agoraphobic, this is a revolution.

Instead if being dominated by negative thoughts, she began to see them as nothing more than “objects,” and in fact she imagined them as pebbles on a beach. She could see them as discreet entities and could simply walk around them, pick them up and look at them, but she no longer was compelled to become them. She began to find her true Self again – a Self that was not defined by rock hard thoughts, but was that inquisitive child that could look at these “things” and not be afraid. This is the beginning of the Resolution phase of mindfulness – a release of that contracted energy, a flowering of her true essence as the “knowing” of the contents of her mind – the “known” and the habitual reactivity and resistance to her emotions – “the knower.” Mindfulness allows us to let go of the known and the knower and awaken as the knowing – the pure consciousness of the free mind and heart.

Agoraphobia Therapy Online via Skype

Please feel free to contact me if you are considering agoraphobia therapy online. During the Skype therapy sessions I will teach you how to overcome your fear and anxiety attacks through the well-tested methods of Mindfulness Therapy that I have developed and refined over the last 10 years. The mindfulness therapy approach is extremely effective for most people and you should expect to see significant improvements after 3-6 sessions with me.

The style of therapy that I provide for anxiety is called Mindfulness Therapy, which teaches you specific ways of working with your emotions so that you do not become overwhelmed by them. You can learn much more about this approach by visiting my website. One of the techniques I have developed is called Mindfulness-based Exposure Therapy. This involves designing a series of progressive exposure challenges that you train with on a daily basis. However, exposure therapy by itself is seldom sufficient. What really make the difference is the mindfulness training that you do before during and after each challenge.

Basically, in MBET you play through each challenge in your mind and watch for any anxiety reactions. You then develop a conscious and compassionate relationship with the anxiety and help it resolve until the anxiety is no longer triggered. Instead of just becoming anxious, we work on seeing the anxiety as an object, even better, as being like a child that needs our compassion. We become a “parent” to our emotions. This is the training that makes all the difference, and I will teach you exactly how to do this during our sessions. The major problem that we are trying to overcome is our tendency to blindly identify with the fear and then react to the fear with more fear and aversion. When you stop this and become a parent to your emotions, then they are able to heal and you grow in confidence (become a better parent). This approach is immensely effective and most people see big changes in a few weeks of practice with me.

Agoraphobia Therapy Online

Welcome. My name is Peter Strong and I’m a professional psychotherapist specializing in online therapy. I offer online therapy for agoraphobia.

So, agoraphobia online therapy is very effective for people who really can’t get out of the house to work with a therapist in their local area.

So, during these sessions that I offer via Skype, I focus on teaching you very effective mindfulness-based methods of working with your anxiety and panic attacks.

The really important thing to understand here is that Agoraphobia is really a psychological habit. I prefer to call it a habit rather than a disorder because when you start labeling these psychological states as disorders that tends to reinforce your sense of helplessness as a victim, and we don’t want to do that.

The actual mechanism that generates the anxiety and panic attacks of agoraphobia is a habit and habits can be changed. So during online agoraphobia therapy sessions I will guide you in how to work with the underlying emotions and thought patterns that supports that anxiety.

We do this in a surprising way. We actually learn to make friends with our fear. This is very, very important. You can’t change the belief when it has a very strong emotional charge based on fear. No amount of rational arguments or persuasion that you don’t need to feel this way is going to change that anxiety.

You have to learn to work with the anxiety directly. And that’s what you do during mindfulness therapy. We actually learn to meditate on your own fear as you imagine walking or traveling out of your safe zone.

So, we set up a series of challenges, exposures, if you like, where you choose to do a particularly difficult exercise but one that you can manage. But then we prepare for this by playing it through in the mind it might be walking around the block or just simply leaving the house for a few minutes, whatever it might be.

We design a challenge and then we prepare for it by meditating on it. We play it through in the mind and then we look for the fear reactions and we look for the thought reactions that feed that fear and then we develop a mindfulness-based relationship with these emotions and thoughts, and that relationship is based on friendliness.

You learn, essentially, to sit with your emotions and thoughts without becoming overwhelmed by them, without losing your balance. This is central. This is a central part of mindfulness training, that you can be with your thoughts and emotions but not be overwhelmed by them. When you can do dance, then you start to break the habits that get reinforced by re-traumatizing, essentially, that fear.

So, we learn to sit with our emotions without becoming reactive and without identifying with those emotions. We learn to develop this other side of our identity, which we call the True Self, the Observer Mind, that which can be conscious of thoughts and emotions but is not identified with thoughts or emotions.

We then work with those emotions and begin to treat them very much as you might treat a child that’s afraid. we learn to comfort the emotion itself, the fear. you build a strong relationship with it, rather like a parent to a child. And in this way the fear reaction, that we might call the Little Self is able to let go of its fear by proximity to your True Self which is fearless nature.

So, in this way we begin to build resolution pathways in the brain. You learn, basically, how to help the emotions resolve themselves, so that if they get triggered they simply resolve instantly, on the spot, through the training that you’ve done before you do the challenge And then you go out and walk around the block or whatever and put this training into action.

So, we repeat this process over and over again. Meditation before challenge and we do the challenge and we may come back and meditate some more and then we repeat the challenge until we no longer feel any fear in doing that challenge. Then we move on to a harder challenge. And in this way we gain more and more confidence in the process.

So, when you are able to neutralize these emotional reactions then the beliefs begin to change quite automatically. We don’t need to try and change our beliefs. We simply need to change the emotional content that fuels those beliefs and makes them so powerful.

Online Treatment for Agoraphobia without using drugs

Welcome. My name is Peter Strong and I’m a professional psychotherapist and I offer mindfulness based online therapy for agoraphobic anxiety and panic attacks.

The mindfulness approach is extremely effective and during online therapy sessions I will teach you how to work with your agoraphobic anxiety using the techniques of mindfulness to help you prevent your becoming overwhelmed by the anxiety reactions.

We do this by actually meditating on our anxiety before we do any challenges. Meditating helps to change the relationship that you have with your anxiety and this is absolutely essential, because the biggest problem that I encounter is that people suffering from anxiety tend to become identified with their emotions.

They tend to become consumed by their emotions. They effectively lose their identity and become the emotions and this creates a very reactive place that is very difficult to escape from.

So with mindfulness training you can change this pattern and learn to develop a relationship with your anxiety whereby you do not become identified with it where you can see the anxiety as an observer. This is essential for change. Once you begin to do this the rate of recovery from agoraphobic anxiety and panic attacks increases dramatically, and most people will see quite substantial changes after only four or five sessions with me once they start applying the mindfulness-based techniques.

So the basic idea is that you will schedule sessions with me and we will work on setting up a series of challenges that you can manage and then you prepare for these challenges using mindfulness meditation. You do that challenge and you meditate on any anxiety that arose during that challenge.

And each time we learn a little more about how to change our relationship to our anxiety so that we basically break free from the habit of identification and becoming overwhelmed by it. And this approach is, from my experience, the most effective there is for overcoming agoraphobic anxiety.

So if you’d like to get started with me simply go to my website and then email me to schedule a Skype therapy session with me.
