Conventional talk therapy can be useful, but often common talk therapy does not transform the the underlying process that is the real cause of your emotional suffering.

The same can be said for medications – the prescription medications may reduce symptoms for a while, but medications will not transform the underlying process that produces your anxiety or depression.

The type of psychotherapy that I offer is called Mindfulness Therapy, which can be quite powerful for managing chronic anxiety as well as for treating depression or other emotional issues caused by habitual reactive thinking. Most of my clients see dramatic reduction in the level of anxiety and depression after 3-4 sessions of Skype Therapy.

Online Mindfulness-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for OCD
Welcome. My name is Peter Strong and I’m a professional mindfulness therapist using a system of mindfulness therapy that I developed many years ago now, that’s extremely effective for treating obsessive-compulsive disorder or OCD. So, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy for OCD basically teaches you how to break free from the habit of reactive thinking, that is falling into the stream of reactive thinking, of rumination or worrying that might get triggered in the minds.

This is a very important step in cutting off the fuel that that fuels anxiety or depression. So, OCD is simply the result of a process where we become habitually identified with thoughts, and when we become trapped in our thinking. The result is that the thoughts tend to propagate more thoughts and this amplifies the reactive thinking, which in turn amplifies the underlying emotional obsession or anxiety or depression that feeds the OCD. So, learning to break this habit of reactive identification is extremely important and is the principal focus of the mindfulness therapy that I teach online via Skype.

If you’d like to learn more about online mindfulness-based cognitive therapy for OCD, simply go to my websites and then email me. You can ask any questions you might have about mindfulness therapy for OCD and I’d be happy to explain to you how the mindfulness therapy approach can work for you. When you feel ready you can schedule a Skype therapy session with me at a time that works for you, and then begin to teach you how to apply mindfulness for overcoming obsessive thinking and for overcoming the anxiety and depression that’s associated with obsessive-compulsive thinking.

Welcome! My name is Peter Strong, and I am a professional On line Therapist. I specialize in Mindfulness Therapy for treating a range of conditions, including anxiety, depression, stress, addictions and also for the online treatment of OCD, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.

So, how does Mindfulness Therapy work? Well, briefly, Mindfulness Therapy teaches you how to control the reactive thoughts that cause reactive-compulsive behaviors. We learn how to establish what is called a Mindfulness-based Relationship with our compulsive thoughts, so that we can hold those thoughts in our awareness without becoming overwhelmed by them. When we can do this, then we can start to examine the underlying emotion that duels the obsessive thoughts – and this is essential for the treatment of OCD.

Working with that underlying emotion using mindfulness allows us to change the structure of how that emotion operates in the mind. So, once you can change the underlying emotions, then you take the fuel away from the obsessive thinking and this then stops that obsessive thinking converting into compulsive behaviors.

Welcome. My name is Peter Strong, and I provide online therapy via Skype for the treatment of anxiety and depression and also I offer OCD therapy online via Skype.

If you’re suffering from obsessive-compulsive disorder, if you’re having problems with intrusive thoughts or compulsive behaviors, then you might like to try some mindfulness therapy. This training is very effective for helping you work with intrusive thoughts and behaviors by teaching you how to really change the relationship you have to your thoughts and the emotional impulses that feed those thoughts.

So the biggest problem that I see in OCD and also in addiction as well, is the tendency to become just blindly identified with our compulsive thoughts, with our intrusive thoughts. They get triggered and then we simply fall into those thoughts, we become identified with them. We become a prisoner of those thoughts. This is often described as emotional contraction. We contract into the thoughts we literally become our thoughts and that is the real problem with OCD, and during Online Therapy for OCD we learn how to fundamentally change this relationship by actually learning to meditate on our thoughts, those same intrusive thoughts that cause suffering. We hold those in the mind, but in a relationship of conscious awareness, or mindfulness, where we can hold the thought and not fall into it, not identify with it, but see the thought as an object in the mind.

So re-establishing this balance of seeing the thoughts as an object is quite central to breaking out of the trap of obsessive compulsive disorder. You really need to change the way that you relate to your thoughts. If you simply identify with them, that simply reinforces those thoughts and the underlying emotion that fuels the thoughts.

So if you like to learn more about OCD therapy online do please go to my website and email me with any questions you have and feel free to describe the particular form of OCD that you are struggling with and I’m happy to answer your questions, and we can schedule a Skype Therapy session at a time that works for you to help you manage your intrusive thoughts.

Most people see quite significant changes when they apply the mindfulness strategy that I teach themselves when they start applying it between sessions. Most people see quite dramatic improvements after the first three to four sessions. Once you get used to really seeing the thought has an object and not identifying with it then you will be begin to, essentially, neutralize that intrusive thought and the emotion underneath it. Once you stop feeding it, it will begin to lose strength, lose intensity, and eventually you will be able to break free from the effects of those intrusive thoughts and the compulsive behaviors that result from intrusive thoughts.

So if you’d like to get started with me, learning how to apply mindfulness for OCD, then please send me an email. Thank you.

Online Therapy for OCD

Online Therapy for OCD

Welcome. My name is Peter Strong and I’m a professional Mindfulness therapist and I offer online Mindfulness Therapy via Skype for the treatment of anxiety and depression and also for obsessive-compulsive disorder or OCD.

OCD is a very distressing anxiety disorder for most people because they know that these thoughts, these intrusive repetitive thoughts, are irrational and are not productive in any wa,y but they feel completely trapped by them. You find that you’re just not able to persuade yourself, to stop thinking these intrusive thoughts and the intrusive thoughts have a very strong emotional charge to them which is what makes them so intrusive in the first place.

The emotional charge is what we need to work on and that is basically formed around anxiety or fear. This emotional charge is what makes those thoughts intrusive. And also of course these intrusive thoughts lead to repetitive behaviors such as repetitive compulsive handwashing or compulsive cleaning or arranging things in an orderly way over and over again.

Whatever the compulsion it has an underlying intrusive thought. an obsession, and that obsessive thought has underlying it a very intense form of anxiety of fear.

So, the path forward for online therapy for OCD is one of learning to apply mindfulness to neutralize and resolve the underlying fear that infuses the obsessive thoughts and the compulsions that result.

We do this by actually, surprisingly perhaps, meditating on those OCD thoughts. We choose to meditate on them, to bring them into conscious awareness. But on our terms. We choose to do so rather than finding ourselves being a victim of them.

We choose to meditate on them and then we choose to change the way that we relate to these thoughts. First of all, we learn to sit with the thoughts rather like sitting on the bank of a river learning not to fall in, not to become consumed by those thoughts, not to become identified with those thoughts and then act on them.

So, this is the first stage of mindfulness training, is learning to sit with your intrusive thoughts. The second part of that process of sitting with intrusive thoughts is learning not to react to them. So just as we learn to not identify with them, we learn also to not react to them with the common forms of reactivity which are avoidance and aversion. If you try to escape and distract yourself away from intrusive thoughts you will simply feed them and they will come back stronger than ever. And if you try to fight them with some form of willpower or aversion or resistance that too will simply strengthen the underlying anxiety and fear that fuels the intrusive thoughts.

What we need to do instead is generates a friendly and open relationship with the thoughts where we can hold them in the mind in a space of consciousness and friendliness, that’s what we call mindfulness, without becoming obsessed, without becoming caught in the thoughts and without reacting to the thoughts, which simply feeds the underlying fear or anxiety.

That’s the first stage. The second stage is investigating more about what actually creates that underlying fear that makes the thought intrusive, and that is whre we look at the imagery of the fear, of the intrusive thought, because emotion always works through some form of imagery, how you see it in the mind.

So for an intrusive thought, the imagery of that fear and the thought itself is usually very big and very close and very high, and that’s what makes it powerful, it’s imagery, the size of the imagery, the size of the imagery makes it more powerful if it’s large. If it is very small then it’s less powerful. Also the position of the thought is very important. So typically intrusive thoughts are always at a head level. They literally are like bees hovering around the head. So that position at head level is part of the structure of the intrusive thoughts and particularly the fear part of the thought. Remember, it is the fear that’s important. That’s what keeps the thought alive, it keeps it recurring over and over again.

So when we investigate this imagery of how the fear actually works we can begin to explore changing the imagery of how we experience, how we see these thoughts. When you change the imagery you change the emotion that’s associated with the thought.

So typically, what we practice doing is taking the thought which is charged with this fear and making it smaller and then moving it and putting it at a lower level, putting it on the floor. It is not possible to be overwhelmed by a thoughts if it’s the size of an ant and is placed on the floor. If you see it on the floor it loses all its emotional power. And this is part of changing the fear component of the intrusive thoughts. So during mindfulness training we practice doing this, we practice changing the imagery and diffusing the emotional charge, neutralizing it.

When you’ve done this sufficiently then those thoughts cease to be intrusive, they start to fade away quite naturally and the behaviors, the compulsive behaviors that develop from those obsessive thoughts also begins to subside.

So that’s part of the training that we cover in mindfulness therapy. If you would like to learn more about how to apply mindfulness to overcome OCD, do please email me and we can set up an online therapy session for your OCD.

With this approach, which is very practical and very focused, it will give you tools that you can apply yourself and so build on the skills of reprocessing your thoughts, basically. And that’s what’s most important, that you have the tools to do this, and that’s what I teach during online therapy for OCD. So please email me to schedule an online therapy session. Thank you.
