During these sessions I will teach you how to use mindfulness for recovering from all forms of anxiety disorders, including Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Social Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, persistent depression, and for help with and other forms of emotional suffering, by applying the very successful techniques of Mindfulness Meditation Therapy.
This approach is particularly effective and most of my clients/students see noticeable improvements after the first few online sessions with me.
Online Mindfulness-based Skype Psychotherapy is very effective for controlling anxiety and depression without relying on medications. It is always better to treat the cause of your psychological suffering instead of just managing symptoms.
The principle healing factors cultivated during Mindfulness Meditation Therapy are Conscious Awareness, which is necessary for breaking free from the reactive habits that cause psychological suffering, and Inner Compassion, which is what facilitates healing and resolution of psychological suffering.

Online Therapist for Anxiety Disorders
Welcome. My name is Peter Strong and I’m a professional mindfulness-based psychotherapist, and I offer online therapy for the treatment of anxiety disorders.
It’s very convenient for you to work with an online therapist to get the treatment that you need to help you overcome your anxiety disorder. Many people with anxiety disorders really don’t like going to see a therapist in person. They find it rather intimidating.
And also many people don’t like taking medications. Anti-anxiety medications like Xanax may provide some temporary relief from symptoms but medications do nothing at all to correct the underlying psychological process that causes your anxiety.
So there are many different types of anxiety disorder that we can treat using Mindfulness Therapy. The most common type is called Generalized Anxiety Disorder, which really describes a condition of habitual reactive thinking and rumination, catastrophizing, excessive worrying. It’s often described as being lost in negative thoughts.
Another type of anxiety disorder that I work with quite a lot is Social Anxiety Disorder, and also it’s more severe form as agoraphobia. Social Anxiety Disorder is characterized by excessive fear of what people might be thinking about you. It’s difficulty and hyper self-consciousness in social situations. It also describes difficulty in going into crowded areas and so on. Agoraphobia, of course, describes a condition where a person is really really scared of leaving what we might call a secure area, like home. It’s very difficult to go beyond certain comfort boundaries. And that’s usually characterized by severe panic attacks.
So Panic disorder is another kind of anxiety disorder that I work with. This describes a very severe emotional contraction, a very intense form of anxiety that is often triggered by specific events or thoughts or situations.
Another type of anxiety disorder is Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. And that is characterized, yet again, by habitual reactive thoughts or intrusive thoughts that have a very high emotional charge. And because of the high emotional charge, they keep repeating themselves and it’s very difficult to let go of those kind of intrusive thoughts.
So whatever kind of anxiety disorder you have, Mindfulness Therapy is one of the best approaches available for working with these habitual reactive thoughts.
During our sessions I will teach you how to apply mindfulness to work with your particular anxiety disorder, which means learning how to work with these thoughts.
Now thoughts do not create anxiety. That is a common misconception, but they do fuel anxiety that is preexisting. So anxiety creates reactive thoughts, where the reactive thoughts then feed the anxiety and so you get this positive feedback loop that maintains that anxiety and prevents it from resolving and healing.
During Mindfulness Therapy we learn how to change the way we react to the anxiety. We change the way we relate to the anxiety thoughts. We learn to hold them in our conscious awareness without becoming identified with thoughts, without becoming lost in the stream of reactive thinking that feeds the anxiety. And this is one of the most important first parts of the training that I will teach you: how to sit with your thoughts without becoming overwhelmed by them.
And the second part of Mindfulness Therapy is learning how to resolve the underlying anxiety itself. The anxiety is what feeds those thoughts and gives them that emotional charge that causes them to persist and proliferate. And this we do by a variety of methods. But mostly we can describe this as establishing a non-reactive and compassionate relationship with that underlying anxiety. This is what promotes resolution of the anxiety. And once you heal the underlying emotion then the reactive thinking subsides quite naturally.

So during this chat therapy service I will be teaching you mindfulness-based methods for working with your anxiety. The challenge is to prevent the habit of becoming overwhelmed and automatically identified with anxiety reactions and thought reactions that get triggered in the mind. This is by far the central problem that we address during mindfulness training.
We tend to become overwhelmed. We tend to become caught up in anxiety based thinking, and it happens automatically in a conditioned way without our choice or without any sense of control. During mindfulness training we gain control by actually focusing conscious awareness on those emotional and thought habits themselves.
The more you see them, the freer you become from their grip the less they become habitual and when they break that compulsive blind quality of habitual reactivity then the emotions and thought patterns begin to dissolve by themselves. This is a very effective and well-tested method of working with anxiety. You focus your conscious attention on the anxiety but learning not to react to the anxiety.
It is like learning to maintain balance. Say on the edge of the river, in order to maintain and strengthen your balance so you don’t fall into the river, you have to actually practice walking on the bank of the river.
And this is the way it is for any form of learning, you have to actually engage with the challenges that cause you to go off balance. Same applies to developing strength through going into a gym, where you need to strengthen the muscle groups in order to be able to run the marathon or whatever you might want to do. You have to work specifically on strengthening those muscles that are habitually weak.
It’s the same with anxiety. Anxiety is simply a learned habits and the habit can be overcome by purposefully facing your anxiety. Not arguing with it, not trying to suppress the anxiety, not trying to convince yourself that you don’t need to feel anxiety. Those approaches are very, very limited in their effectiveness.
The real effective way to overcome anxiety, as I say, is to learn to stand your ground in the face of anxiety, to learn to maintain your independence in the face of your anxiety, to learn how to maintain freedom in relationship to your anxiety and the reactive thoughts that feed that anxiety.
So during mindfulness teaching we actually purposefully find the thoughts that create the anxiety, we purposefully find the anxiety itself and we focus mindful attention on those mental objects until you have complete freedom and balance.
So if you’re interested in scheduling a chat therapy session with me for help with your anxiety or depression of help with panic attacks as well, then please simply email me.
Mindfulness Therapy for Anxiety
Most of my clients come to me for the above reasons and because they have an interest in mindfulness and similar more modern compassionate approaches to personal transformation. Mindfulness Therapy is a combination of cognitive therapy (CBT) and the highly respected mindfulness awareness techniques described in Buddhist Psychology. This new combination, often called Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is gaining a great deal of interest and is changing the whole face of psychotherapy.
The approach that I have developed is called Mindfulness Therapy, and it works very well online since the whole focus is on teaching you more effective ways of working within your emotions. Good therapy should not depend on what the therapist “does” to you, but rather what he or she teaches you. Only you can produce real change, and the role of a good therapist should be to give you the understanding and practical methods for making these changes.
