Skype Counseling for Anxiety and Depression

Skype Counseling Online for Anxiety and Depression

I offer counseling via Skype to help you learn better ways of managing your emotions using the well-tested methods of Mindfulness Therapy, which works extremely well for anxiety and depression and also works well online. The main consideration for online counseling is that you can see each other as well as speak to each other. When this is the case then counseling over Skype is no different than counseling in-person for the vast majority of people seeking help.

The goal of mindfulness-based Skype counseling is to teach you practical tools that you can use and develop at home for managing your emotions, and mindfulness training and therapy is one of the best approaches for doing this.

I am not in favor of treatment-based approaches or medications because these only treat symptoms but leave the underlying mechanism that creates your anxiety or depression untouched. The mindfulness therapy approach focuses on changing the underlying reactive psychological habits that create emotional suffering.

We do this by cultivating a conscious mindful relationship with our emotions, with our anxiety or fear in we gradually replace habitual fear-based reactivity with mindfulness-based compassion for the anxiety emotion itself, seeing it very much like a child in pain that is in need of our help. Just as with a child, our emotions respond well to conscious and non-reactive attention. This literally creates a space around the emotion in which it can heal. The interesting thing is that anxiety and fear already are trying to heal themselves. The problem is our habitual reactivity. It inhibits natural healing. Learning not to react to our emotions but respond with compassion instead is central to mindfulness training, and it is VERY EFFECTIVE.

Skype Counseling for Anxiety and Depression – therapy sessions by Skype

Welcome! My name is Peter Strong and I am a professional internet counselor and I use Skype for therapy sessions. I specialize in Online Mindfulness Psychotherapy for the treatment of depression and anxiety.

Now, Skype counseling online is becoming highly popular for many reasons. Convenience is certainly one of those reasons, but another reason is, of course, because of the condition itself – anxiety or depression. People experiencing anxiety often find it extremely difficult to go to a therapist in his or her office, in-person. So the Skype counseling option is a very attractive alternative for the treatment of anxiety disorders and also for other anxiety disorders such as agoraphobia and fear of public places.

Whatever the style of therapy that you are attracted to, you need to change the underlying structure of the anxiety or depression itself. Doest Skype counseling work? Absolutely! This is one of the best forms of distance therapy available. Skype therapy is not usually covered by insurance, but it is very much more cost effective that traditional counseling.

Standard Talk Therapy can be useful, but often it does not change the underlying structure, the underlying process that creates your anxiety and depression.

The same can be said for medications – the antidepressant may relieve symptoms for awhile, but medications will not change the underlying process that generates the anxiety or depression.

So, it’s very important to seek what we might call a process-centered therapy that focuses on changing the underlying process that creates the anxiety or depression. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an example of a process-oriented therapy. Mindfulness Therapy, which is a system of work that I developed in the 1980’s incorporates CBT along with mindfulness, and this is another quite popular process-oriented therapy that is remarkably effective for anxiety disorders and this is what I teach during Skype counseling sessions.

Mindfulness therapy is immensely effective and it works very well online. It is all about learning how to change the way you relate to the mind, to thoughts and emotions and memories, whatever appears in the mind as mental objects.

The problem that most people have is that they do not have a conscious relationship with these mental objects. When the thoughts or emotions or memories get triggered we simply collapse into those mental objects. We lose our perspective, we lose our identity and we become overwhelmed.

This process, which we call Reactive identification, is really the primary cause of our suffering. It is not thoughts, it is not even the emotional reactions themselves that are the problem. It is the way we become identified with them. We lose our identity, we lose our perspective and we lose our ability to skillfully change and heal these parts of ourselves. We lose consciousness, in effect as we become identified with our thoughts and emotions.
