Online Psychotherapy via Skype
Online Psychotherapy via Skype for Anxiety and Depression
Online Psychotherapy and Counseling through Skype is becoming more popular than ever for busy people. As a professional online psychotherapist, I have noticed a dramatic increase in the number of clients who prefer to have therapy sessions in the comfort of their own homes rather than driving to a therapist’s office. All say that they find online sessions using Skype or other videocam formats to be less intimidating than face-to-face sessions and that they feel generally more relaxed and in charge of the process. This is good, because the purpose of any form of therapy, teaching or coaching is to give you the tools you need to better manage emotional suffering so that you can live a happier life.
It is surprising how effective Skype therapy sessions are. Although client and therapist may be thousands of miles apart, it feels like you are in the same room. This format is becoming very popular for people in remote areas or people who are unable to leave home for one reason or another. It is a lifeline for those with agoraphobia, who are trying to learn how to cope with venturing out. In Australia, for example, internet therapy is very common, because so many people live in isolated communities where there are few, if any, counselors. Interestingly, many of my clients live in New York and LA. In their case, there are plenty of therapists available, but the competition is so high that they cannot afford their rates.
I have compiled a checklist and guide to help you if you are considering Online Therapy using Skype. As always, if you are experiencing any kind of medical emergency, you should contact your doctor first. Online Therapy is not a substitute for the medical treatment of mental disorders.
- Make sure the online therapist offers free email consultation so that you can ask questions about the process. You should be given the opportunity to describe the emotional issues you are struggling with and feel satisfied with the reply from the prospective therapist. This will allow you to get a feel for his or her approach and whether it resonates with what you feel you need.
- Read any books or articles written by the therapist. This is a good way to determine the credibility and therapeutic approach of the therapist. Having a list of credentials is one thing, but does not necessarily mean that their approach will be appropriate for you, personally. You should get a good feeling sense about the prospective online therapist before you start. Of course the same applies to selecting a traditional therapist.
- I think it is a good sign if the therapist requests payment AFTER a session, rather than before. That way you only pay if you are satisfied with the session and feel that you gained something.
- Ensure that online payment is made through a secure site, such as PayPal. This can be set up very easily. Just go to PayPal.com.
- Approach Online Therapy as a teaching medium from which you hope to gain certain tools and insights to help you better manage your emotional problems. You should feel that you come away with something of value from every session.
You can download the software that allows you to make Skype video calls from Skype.com. It is easy to set up and most importantly the service from Skype is free. Most laptops have a built in videocam and mic, which makes it very easy. If your computer does not have this, you can buy a very inexpensive videocam that connects via the USB port. Your prospective online therapist should be able to help you with setup.
Skype Therapy sessions can be conducted from anywhere in the world. All you need is access to the internet. This is a wonderful feature, because it allows you to talk with quality professionals and teachers that may not be available in your region or country. For example, someone from Germany or Australia can have a session with a quality therapist from California or Boulder, Colorado – the “hot bed” of progressive schools of psychotherapy, alternative therapists and spiritual teachers. The world has become much more connected through this wonderful technology and the possibilities are limitless for promoting well-being and happiness.

Online Psychotherapy Service
Welcome! I offer psychotherapy via Skype. Therapy over Skype is a very effective way of getting the help that you might need for working with difficult emotional problems.
Generally, during these Skype therapy sessions I will help you work with anxiety and depression and also addictions and other difficult patterns of emotional reactivity.
The process of Skype therapy that I teach involves using the advanced techniques of Mindfulness Therapy, which help you actually change the way you relate to your emotions. The most important thing that we teach in the beginning of mindfulness therapy over Skype is how to form a stable and non-reactive relationship with your emotions and your thoughts.
The biggest problem that I come across in the clients that I work with online is that people do not have a relationship with their mind, at all. They simply become overwhelmed by the thoughts and the emotional reactions that get triggered out of habit. This is the biggest problem, because when you become identified with thoughts or emotions then you basically feed those thoughts and emotions, you feed the fire of anxiety or depression.
So, the most important first step in mindfulness-based therapy, that I teach online through Skype is to basically break this habit of identification. When you can do that, then everything begins to change and heal because you are no longer feeding the underlying anxiety or depression or other emotion.

From my experience with working with clients, particularly people who are suffering from anxiety or depression, I find that Skype therapy is just as effective as office-based sessions. In fact, many of my clients say that they actually prefer online psychotherapy because it is, obviously, more convenient, but it is also more private for you and less intimidating. It means you can stay at home and have your therapy sessions in the comfort of familiar surroundings. Also, it means that you don’t have to take on the challenge of leaving home if you are suffering from agoraphobia or social anxiety or other form of anxiety that makes it very difficult for you to leave the house.
