Speak to a therapist online over Skype

People really enjoy online therapy because it is so convenient. It is so much easier to get access to professional help and learn how to better manage your emotional and psychological well-being. You can conduct your psychotherapy sessions from the comfort of your home, which is important because the more comfortable you feel the more receptive you will be.

Online therapy is also much less clinical in nature and more focused on teaching you practical skills for managing your emotion more effectively. Most people don’t need or want to take medications but are motivated to better understand what causes their anxiety or depression and how to work with their emotions themselves, rather than depending on someone else to “treat” their anxiety or depression.

I specialize in Mindfulness Therapy, a system that I developed in the 1980s and which is particularly effective for overcoming anxiety and depression. Most people see marked improvements after the first few sessions as they start applying the mindfulness methods (including meditation) that I teach.

The main theme in Mindfulness Therapy is to uncover and change the underlying subjective blind habitual reactivity that feeds emotional suffering and that inhibits healing. The key point here is that these subjective emotional and cognitive reactions are “blind”, meaning that they operate at a subconscious level and they remain as automatic conditioned reactions because of the absence of consciousness.

The focus of Mindfulness Therapy is to develop objective consciousness where we can see the emotional reactions and thought reactions and memories as objects. The problem is that we do not se them as objects, that we become identified with these reactive emotions, thoughts, memories and perceptions. This blind conditioned attachment is what I refer to as Reactive Identification, which is seen as the main cause of suffering and the main process that we focus on transforming during Mindfulness Therapy (also known as Mindfulness Meditation Therapy).

The advantages of seeing a Therapist Online

There are many reasons why people prefer talking to a therapist online either through email or telephone, instant massaging or Skype. Here are a few of the most cited reasons:

  • Convenience. People like the convenience of talking to a therapist online. There is no wasted time in driving to and from the therapist’s office. This can be a major consideration for people living in busy urban areas such as New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco in the USA, or other cities such as London and Tokyo, abroad.
  • The Comfort Factor. Being able to talk to an Online Therapist is more comfortable for you. My clients tell me how much more comfortable they feel during therapy sessions when they can stay in the comfortable and familiar surroundings of their choice, whether that is their home or office. This is an important consideration because the more comfortable and relaxed you feel, the more efficient the therapy process.
  • Less Intimidating. Working with painful emotions is difficult enough, and doing this in front of another person adds another level of anxiety that can affect the therapeutic outcome. It can often take many sessions before a client feels comfortable talking to a therapist in person. The Skype video screen gives just enough separation that can really help you in your process of working with painful emotions. Combined with the comfort factor, working with an online therapist can in many cases be significantly more effective that seeing a therapist in person.
  • The Empowerment Factor. Good therapy is all about helping you change from being a victim of your emotions to being able to embrace your emotions with conscious presence and compassion. The more comfortable you feel, the less intimidated you feel and the less distracted you feel by unfamiliar surroundings, the more likely you are to make this all important shift in perception from victim to healer. In the end, it is always you who heal your emotional suffering and this is a function of how empowered you feel. I have seen how the online Skype Therapy format enables this process.
  • Avoiding Dependency. The client-therapist relationship is very important, but it is also extremely important that you do not become dependent on the therapist to tell you how to live your life. Therapy should develop autonomy and self-confidence in the client and not a sense of being inadequate and looking to the therapist to make it all right. Again, the slight distancing effect of the internet format helps stop dependency.
  • Living Abroad. Many of my clients live abroad, in Canada, Mexico and South America, overseas in Europe and the UK, the Middle East, and as far away as Japan and Singapore. In foreign countries language and cultural differences make it hard to find local therapists to work with. The opportunity to work with an online therapist who speaks the same language and comes from the same cultural background is a major factor.
  • Anonymity. People living in rural tight-knit communities where everyone knows each other may not want to work with a local counselor or therapist. The option of seeing a therapist online is very attractive because you can keep this private.
  • More and Better Choices. Many people are looking for a better alternative to the traditional forms of talking therapy, or the more common form of seeing a psychiatrist to get prescription medications. In fact, most of my clients have already tried these routes and have not gotten the results they wanted and so have been motivated to search for better alternatives. One of the great advantages of internet-based therapy is that you have so much more choices available to you. You can search for the style of therapy that best matches your beliefs and philosophy. These choices may not be available locally. Many of my clients have heard about Mindfulness Therapy and Buddhist Psychology and the remarkable impact these mindfulness-based approaches are making today on the whole field of psychotherapy.

“Online Counseling via Skype works very well for me. I can have my sessions at home, which is very convenient and comfortable for me. Peter teaches very practical mindfulness methods for working with my panic anxiety, and these have been remarkable effective.”

How to Choose an Online Therapist

Welcome! My name is Peter Strong and I am a professional psychotherapist living in Boulder, Colorado, and I offer Online Psychotherapy via Skype. This is a convenient service for many people who may be living in rural areas or living abroad, or really prefer the convenience of being able to talk to a psychotherapist online via Skype.

So, the style of psychotherapy that I provide and is called Mindfulness Therapy. Now, this is a very exciting and very unique way of working with difficult emotions, including anxiety, depression and trauma. I often see clients with some form of traumatic experience that they are trying to process from childhood or from life-changing events.

The Mindfulness approach is one of learning how to sit with your emotions, how to be present with your emotions without becoming reactive. It’s the reactivity that stops emotions from healing, from changing and transforming. The process of Mindfulness teaches us how to be with our emotions without becoming reactive, without becoming overwhelmed by the emotion, without becoming consumed by it.

Mindfulness Therapy is very good for working with anxiety and depression, or emotional stress or trauma, as I said. It is also very good for working with addictions. Addictions, as you know, are driven by very strong compulsive emotions, and to break free of these emotions requires that you learn how to sit with those same compulsive emotions without becoming overwhelmed by them. This is a skill that I teach during the Online Psychotherapy sessions.

If you would like to learn more about Online Psychotherapy via Skype, please  read the pages on this site, watch the other videos that I have posted and learn about this style of working with emotions. Then if it is something you would like to pursue, please CONTACT ME through the Contact Form on the website, and I look forward to meeting you and helping you through Online Psychotherapy via Skype. Thank you!

If you are indeed committed to your own personal well-being, and don’t want to be labeled or judged, look no further. Sign up for Skype sessions with Dr. Strong, and have the support you need anytime and anywhere. Dr. Strong will work with you, not for you. You will find that your sessions with Dr. Strong will not seem like therapy or counseling at all, but rather a real, open, and honest conversations and powerful moments of realization and self-acceptance.

All you have to do for a FREE consultation with Dr. Strong is the following:

  • Have a Skype username
  • Be committed to yourself
  • Be ready for deep, lasting understanding and peace

Talk with an Online Therapist to Overcome Anxiety & Depression

Welcome! My name is Peter Strong and I’m a professional online therapist specializing in Mindfulness Therapy for the treatment of anxiety and depression, OCD, panic attacks and other emotional problems that don’t require medication. If you’d like to talk to an online therapist to help you overcome anxiety or depression I encourage you to contact me. Go to my website and learn more about this online therapy service and then reach out to me by email and we can discuss in more detail how Mindfulness Therapy can help you.

So, talking to an online therapist is becoming very popular as an alternative to traditional in-person psychotherapy. One of his greatest advantages is, of course, it’s convenience. It means that you can conduct your therapy sessions from home, and that convenience also brings a great deal of comfort for you. It means that you feel more at ease and are better able to learn the principles that I will teach you during our therapy sessions together.

So, during therapy sessions I will teach you very practical and very effective mindfulness-based methods of working with emotions, of working with anxiety and depression or addiction or any other emotion that is causing suffering.

The first principle that we will explore together is how to apply mindfulness for working with difficult emotions, how to actually meditate on your emotions, how to establish a conscious relationship with your emotions without becoming overwhelmed by them and without becoming caught up in those patterns of habitual reactive thinking and rumination that feeds anxiety and depression. This is a very powerful skill to learn.

It takes some training but with good guidance you can learn how to change the way that you relate to your emotions and this is quite central to change. If you keep reacting to your anxiety or depression or impulses, n the case of an addiction, then you simply feed that emotional suffering. But if you can sit with an emotion without reacting to it then you stop feeding that emotion. You take the fuel away and then the emotion is able to change and heal according to its own nature.

All emotional suffering is already trying to heal itself. This is a property of emotional suffering. You can think of it as being an energetic state that is unstable, that is out of balance, and anything that is out of balance in Nature always tries to come back to a state of energetic balance. This is a fundamental principle and it’s very strong in living beings, including ourselves. We run on that principle of what we call “homeostasis.” The mind and the body responds to states of instability, states of imbalance and always tries to bring it back to balance, to stability, to restore that sense of well-being in the body and mind.

So, this principle of homeostasis works in the mind as well as the body. And this is why we say that emotions are already trying to heal themselves, to come into a state of balance. But they cannot heal if you feed them with reactivity.

So the first principle of mindfulness training is learning to sit with your emotions without reacting. And then we can actually begin the process of healing that emotion, whatever it is. The healing happens when we create a non-reactive and safe space around that emotion, if you like.

So this is one of the most fundamental principles in Mindfulness Therapy, the system of psychotherapy that I developed some years ago. And you’ll see many different versions of mindfulness-based therapy out there, including mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, and they are all slightly different. But Mindfulness Therapy or Mindfulness Meditation Therapy, as I originally called it and talk about in my book, is learning to be with your emotions without reacting and then interacting with your emotions in a way that facilitates their healing.

So if you’d like to learn more about Mindfulness Therapy and you’d like to talk to an online therapist, if you would like to use that medium for getting the help that you need for overcoming your anxiety or depression, please email me. Ask any questions you might have. And let’s schedule a trial therapy session so you can see for yourself just how effective Mindfulness Therapy can be and also how effective talking to an online therapist can be for healing emotional suffering, and without using prescription medications. Thank you.

You can talk to a therapist online through Skype

Welcome. My name is Peter Strong. I’m a professional psychotherapist based in Boulder, Colorado and I offer online therapy via Skype for treating anxiety and depression So, can you talk to a therapist online? Yes you can. You can talk to a therapist online for non-medical conditions such as anxiety and depression and other common emotional problems.

The whole purpose of online therapy is really to help you develop skills for working with your anxiety or depression to learn how to overcome your anxiety or depression without using medications or medical treatment.

And it’s very easy to get started all you need is Skype. If you want to talk to a therapist online you really should use some form of video interface like Skype so that you can see each other as well as talk to each other. The visual component makes communication very much more effective and that will improve the effectiveness of your therapy sessions. And if you’re using Skype then really the online therapy becomes just as good as meeting a therapist in person. Especially when the focus is on teaching new methods and practical ways of working with your emotions.

I specialize in mindfulness therapy which is becoming very popular indeed because it’s so effective for treating anxiety and depression and it also helps a great deal with other conditions like addiction recovery, and PTSD is another area that I offer online therapy for through Skype. The main the main focus in Mindfulness Therapy is teaching you how to fundamentally change the way that you relate to your mind, to your thoughts and emotions, to trauma, to beliefs, whatever it might be, but particularly to thoughts and emotions.

Many people are plagued by intrusive thoughts and excessive worry thoughts, catastrophizing, rumination etc., and this sort of reactive thinking fuels anxiety and depression.

So learning to change your relationship to thoughts so that you don’t become overwhelmed by the thinking mind, that you can observe thoughts but not become lost in the river of thoughts that might get triggered. That’s very important indeed and that’s one of the skills that I will be teaching you during the online therapy sessions.

And the second set of skills are based on helping the emotion underneath the thoughts, the emotion of anxiety or depression or fear that is fueling those thoughts. Helping it heal. Helping it resolve itself, which is largely a result of forming a very conscious friendly and non-reactive relationship with your emotions and thoughts.

When you get that relationship right then you stop feeding the emotion underneath the thoughts and that basically starts to take the energy away from reactive thinking and the thoughts begin to diminish in intensity and frequency by themselves.

There are other aspects of mindfulness therapy that we use to help heal the emotions underneath our thoughts.

If you’d like to learn more and you’d like to get started with me and schedule an online therapy session using Skype then do please go to my website and then email me and we can arrange for a time that works for you wherever you live in the USA Canada or Western Europe or worldwide. As long as you have an internet connection you can schedule Skype Therapy sessions with me. So please contact me now. Thank you.

Talk to a Therapist Online using Skype

Welcome. My name is Peter Strong and I provides online psychotherapy for the treatment of anxiety and depression. If you’d like to talk to a therapist online for anxiety or if you’d like to speak to a therapist online for help with depression or if you’d like to talk with a therapist online for help with recovery from an addiction, then I invite you to go to my website and read more about online therapy and how it can help you overcome your anxiety or depression or addiction or other emotional problems.

My clients really enjoy talking to a therapist online because it’s more convenient. It’s easier to fit into a busy work schedule, and it’s also very much more comfortable for you because you can have your session from home.

You don’t have to travel to a clinic or a therapist’s office. So it’s also generally less intimidating talking via Skype than it is talking in person. And this is quite important especially if you’re working with anxiety, depression or addiction. People are often very uncomfortable about their emotional states and they don’t like talking to a person directly. It’s therefore a lot easier to talk about your emotional well-being online.

Also the style of therapy that I provide is not readily available, is called mindfulness therapy, and many people specifically choose this approach for working with anxiety or depression or addiction.

So mindfulness therapy is really quite different than traditional talk therapy or counseling. It’s very different than psychoanalysis. It’s not a process of trying to explain why you feel anxiety or depression, it is not trying to uncover the past or analyze your upbringing. Instead mindfulness therapy focuses on what you can do right now to change the psychological habits that are creating your anxiety or depression or the psychological habits that are fueling your addiction.

So during mindfulness therapy sessions I will teach you very practical ways of working with your emotions using mindfulness. The results are quite spectacular. Most people see very fast progress and generally I expect you to see significant changes in the intensity of your anxiety or depression within three to four sessions. I think that’s quite important. You should see results after the first few sessions.

Psychotherapy should not be a process that takes countless sessions over the years to achieve results. To me that simply indicates an inefficient process. Learning how to work with your emotions and overcoming anxiety or depression or addiction is simply a function of learning practical and effective strategic methods. And that’s what we teach during online therapy sessions.

The most important step in mindfulness training is learning how to see your experiences, including thoughts and emotional reactions clearly and without becoming identified with them. When we identify with the content of mind we tend to lose perspective and become imprisoned by thoughts and emotions which leads to suffering. Developing equanimity as the OBSERVER of mental objects is the first essential step in overcoming any form of emotional suffering, including anxiety and depression.

Rumination and chronic worrying are examples of habitual reactive thinking and occurs when there is an absence of conscious awareness, or mindfulness. We fall right into the river of reactive thoughts and get swept away. This leads to suffering as well as making us less able to enjoy life as it unfolds. Mindfulness is definitely learning to be more present, but that includes being more present with thoughts and emotions as well.

Talk to a psychotherapist online by Skype for treating anxiety and depression

Learn how to break free from anxiety or depression. See a Psychotherapist Online via Skype for highly effective online therapy for Depression and Anxiety, Social Anxiety Disorder and Agoraphobia, Addictions, Post Traumatic Disorder (PTSD) or any other forms of emotional stress that do not require medical treatment. Contact me to find out more about this online therapy service and to schedule a Skype therapy session with me.

I am a Professional Online Therapist and I specialize in Mindfulness Therapy, as described in my book, “The Path of Mindfulness Meditation.” Mindfulness Therapy is an amazingly effective way of helping you break free from habitual patterns of emotional and cognitive reactivity.

It is based on the observation that change and transformation only become possible when you can establish a positive relationship with your anxiety, depression, stress or other emotions based on awareness and compassionate friendliness (this is mindfulness). This creates the right internal conditions that promotes transformation and healing.

The principle is simple, but it takes training to overcome our conditioned habits of avoidance and aversion towards painful emotions. However, once you establish the MIndfulness-based relationship with a painful emotion, it begins to heal quite quickly, and this is why people generally see faster results with Mindfulness Therapy than with traditional talk therapies.

When you are looking for an online therapist do make sure that he or she answers all your questions about the type of psychotherapy that they offer and what you can expect. You need to find the right therapist for you and one that you feel comfortable with.

Welcome! My name is Peter Strong and I am a professional Online Therapist. My specialty is Mindfulness Therapy and I offer Mindfulness Therapy online via Skype.

This approach is gaining tremendous popularity, and it’s an extraordinary way of working with emotional problems such as anxiety, depression and stress.

The great strength of the mindfulness approach is that it help you develop what we call a non-reactive relationship with your emotions and negative thoughts or patterns of cognitive reactivity that generate anxiety, depression or stress.

It is so important to be able to literally “sit” with your emotions instead of avoiding them or fighting them or running away from them. You need to establish a relationship with your emotions if they are to change.

With mindfulness we learn how to establish this relationship with our emotions. We learn how to bring a quality of awareness and friendliness, or compassion, to our emotions. This create the ideal inner conditions that leads to healing and transformation.

We all know that reactivity, avoidance and aversion will not help an emotional condition like anxiety heal. It can only heal when you bring this quality of mindfulness to the emotion. We learn to become friends with the emotion, and this is what promotes healing.

So, there’s a lot of detail to Mindfulness Therapy. If you would like to learn more, please visit my website and please contact me. We can schedule a Skype Therapy session and see if this is an appropriate choice for you to help you overcome your anxiety, depression or stress. So, please go to my website and send me an email. Thank you!

Talk to a therapist online now for effective help with anxiety and depression

So, now it’s possible for you to talk to a therapist online to get help with anxiety or depression or addiction or any other emotional problem that’s causing problems in your life.

It’s very easy to get started, all you need is Skype and a good internet connection and then you can schedule a Skype therapy session with me. I see people throughout North America and Western Europe and as far away as Australia.

People contact me because they are particularly interested in the Mindfulness approach that I teach. Mindfulness therapy is immensely effects for anxiety and depression, particularly.

During these sessions which, I usually hold once a week, I will teach you very practical and very effective mindfulness-based methods for working with your emotions. The most important thing that we have to change is the way that we relate to our emotions. Typically, we become identified with our emotions, they consume us, they overwhelm us, they basically cause us to become very reactive and this is a habit. This is a habit called reactive identification. It’s the first thing we work on during mindfulness therapy sessions.

We need to, basically, break this habit so that you do not become overwhelmed by your emotions, that you can establish a stable and non-reactive relationship with your emotions. We call this learning to sit with your emotions. This is crucial when you have learnt how to do this, then you create the right conditions for the emotion to change and heal itself. But, also when you have a stable and non-reactive relationship with your emotions then you can help them heal. We do this through a variety of techniques.

One of the most effective and powerful aspects of mindfulness therapy is learning to develop a friendly and compassionate relationship with your emotions. This is absolutely essential for their healing. We must get over the habit of reacting with hatred or avoidance towards our emotional pain. We must instead learn to embrace it, because only then can you help it heal.

Much of the healing happens through this relationship, which we call the relationship between the True Self, your true self, and the emotion the Little Self. This alliance is very much like the alliance between a parent and a child in a healthy family. When the child feels secure it grows in a healthy way and learns how to manage its well-being by itself, it develops its own true self in that environment.

This is how we must treat our emotions, rather like we would treat the child with discipline, that’s not becoming reactive, but also with love, which helps the emotion change and heal.

If you would like to learn more about the mindfulness therapy approach to healing anxiety or depression and you like the idea of talking to a therapist online now, do please go to my website, learn more and then send me an email so we can work on scheduling a Skype therapy session at a time that was you.

Online Therapy – The New Field of Alternative Psychotherapy

The Internet has made it easy to find solutions to almost any problem or need, whether researching a subject for high quality information, or looking for a service such as online therapy.

Online therapy providers are becoming increasingly common these days and seem beneficial in the hectic schedule of today’s lifestyle. You can now get quality help from an online therapist to help you overcome your anxiety and depression. If you are struggling with difficult emotions or you want to learn better ways to manage them, or you want to counter your fear, you can get the help you need by talking to an experienced online therapist via Skype.

Reasons for visiting an online therapist

There are many advantages to working with an online therapist either through telephone or email or via Skype, which is the best choice because it allows you to see the therapist in real-time. Here are few of the advantages provided by online therapy:

  • Accessibility

People want an effortless and easy way to reach their therapist and online therapy is definitely easier. You don’t need to visit the therapist’s office and deal with traffic while driving there. This is major consideration of people living in big cities having a busy schedule.

  • More comfortable for you

It is more comfortable for you talking to a therapist from your home or other familiar environment. It has been observed by most online therapists that their clients feel much more comfortable and relaxed when they are calling from their home or office. The therapeutic process becomes more effective if the client is relaxed and this means that it generally requires far fewer sessions of therapy to achieve results. In my experience, most clients see significant improvements in the level of anxiety or depression after 3-6 one-hour sessions.

  • Less threatening

It is difficult to work with painful emotions, and doing this in front of your therapist can increase the level of anxiety, which can affect the outcome. The Skype video screen gives a sense of separation that can really help in the process of working with a person’s emotions.

  • Eliminate dependency

It is necessary for both client and therapist to maintain a good relationship; at the same time the client should not become dependent on the therapist to tell him how to live his or her life. The main purpose of psychotherapy is to create self-confidence and autonomy in the client and not a sense of being incomplete or relying on the therapist to make it all right.

  • Living abroad

It could be possible that you are living abroad. In foreign countries, it becomes difficult to find a local therapist due to difference in culture and language. The therapist of the same cultural background and who speaks your language is obviously going to be a major factor for a successful therapy.

  • Anonymity

Many people in rural areas are not willing to work with local counselor or therapist. When talking about online therapy it is also attractive and appealing due to privacy factor.

  • More option and better choices

Many people are fed up of the typical style of therapy and the traditional approach of talking therapy; they want a fresh approach; perhaps one that is less analytical and more holistic. Many are also looking for an alternative to visiting a psychiatrist to get medications. Certainly, most of my clients have tried antidepressants and anxiety medications or old style talk therapy and have not found the results they wanted and are therefore motivated to search for a better choice. One of the biggest advantages of online therapy is that you have numerous choices. You can search the style of therapy that best suits you and that agrees with your outlook and beliefs. These choices or options may not be available locally or from an institutional psychotherapist.

How to choose the best online therapist

The most important factor for choosing a therapist for you to help you overcome your anxiety or depression, addiction or relationship problems, is to establish good communication with the therapist before you start therapy. Make sure he explains what to expect from therapy sessions.

Common services offered by a therapist

Most of us may have never considered working with online therapists, but this option can be a very good and effective way of receiving counseling these days. Indeed, many prefer to meet the therapist online rather than going to his office. It saves time as well as money.

With the revolution in video communication brought in by Skype it’s now possible to meet your therapist anywhere and at any time, and it feels the same as if you are meeting him face to face. Believe me there is no real difference between online or in person therapy, and this is supported by lots of research, especially in cognitive-based CBT therapy delivered online.

As far as cognitive CBT or mindfulness therapy are concerned it makes no difference whether you meet on Skype or in the therapist’s office, because the emphasis is on teaching skills that you can apply by yourself as homework for managing emotions.

The most common issues treated with online therapy are chronic anxiety, including social anxiety, non-clinical depression, stress and PTSD, addictions and compulsive disorders (OCD) and many other common emotional problems that are non-clinical and do not have an underlying medical cause.

Many people are attracted to mindfulness therapy partly because of the immense amount of research showing its effectiveness, but also because it is a more positive and holistic approach that treats the whole person. It provides a more natural way of treating anxiety, depression and stress.

If you think you need an online therapist just go to your laptop and send me an email to learn more about this convenient and highly effective option.

Would you like to talk to an Online Therapist? It is very easy to get started. Simply email me. Let me answer all your questions about how this process works and how to get started, and when you are ready, you can schedule a Skype Session of Online Therapy. All you need is Skype and PayPal and you are ready to begin!

What style of psychotherapy is best online?

So, the style of psychotherapy that I provide and is described throughout this website is called Mindfulness Therapy. Now, this is a very exciting and very unique way of working with difficult emotions, including anxiety, depression and trauma. I often see clients with some form of traumatic experience that they are trying to process from childhood or from life-changing events.

The Mindfulness approach is one of learning how to sit with your emotions, how to be present with your emotions without becoming reactive. It’s the reactivity that stops emotions from healing, from changing and transforming. The process of Mindfulness teaches us how to be with our emotions without becoming reactive, without becoming overwhelmed by the emotion, without becoming consumed by it.

Mindfulness Therapy is very good for working with anxiety and depression, or emotional stress or trauma, as I said. It is also very good for working with addictions. Addictions, as you know, are driven by very strong compulsive emotions, and to break free of these emotions requires that you learn how to sit with those same compulsive emotions without becoming overwhelmed by them. This is a skill that I teach during the Online Psychotherapy sessions.

If you would like to learn more about Online Psychotherapy via Skype, please read the pages on this site, watch the other videos that I have posted there and learn about this style of working with emotions. Then if it is something you would like to pursue, please CONTACT ME, and I look forward to meeting you and helping you through Online Psychotherapy via Skype. Thank you!

Talk to a Mindfulness Therapist Online via Skype

Welcome. My name is Peter Strong. I’m a professional psychotherapist specializing in Buddhist psychotherapy and specifically Mindfulness Therapy, which I offer via Skype for the treatment of anxiety and depression and for addictions and for help with many other psychological problems using the very well respected and well tested methods of Mindfulness Therapy.

So if you’d like to talk to a therapist online, I invite you to look at my website and then contact me if you have any questions and if you would like to schedule a therapy session with me.

Talk to a therapist via Skype

So I offer therapy via Skype, and it’s really important that you use some video platform like Skype or Face Time or Zoom so that you can see each other. If you can see each other, then online therapy or teletherapy becomes just as effective as meeting with a therapist in person.

It’s not necessary to be in the same room, but it is necessary that you can see each other because that is required for good communication and good communication is central for good psychotherapy. So as long as you can see each other, then being able to work with an online therapist is a very good option for you to consider.

Advantages of Skype Therapy

Many people like the convenience offered by online therapy. It’s just a lot easier to schedule your sessions. You don’t have to travel to a therapist’s office. You don’t have to leave home so it is much easier to integrate your therapy sessions within your busy schedule.

Another advantage is for people who can’t leave home for one reason or another. For example, if you are suffering from agoraphobia, then seeking help from an online therapist becomes really essential. If you’re suffering from a driving anxiety disorder or phobia around driving, then also being able to talk to a therapist online is an excellent option to help you work with your anxiety and depression and also to work with your driving anxiety specifically.

I actually get a lot of requests from people suffering from driving anxiety, and the Mindfulness Therapy approach that I specialize in has proven to be very effective indeed for treating anxiety disorders, including driving anxiety and agoraphobia.

So the more important factor is the quality and the style of psychotherapy offered by an online therapist or other therapist, in person. That’s much more important than whether you are seeing a therapist online or in person. You have to find the right fit for your needs.

So it’s really important when you’re selecting a psychotherapist to work with that you use your own intuition, your instincts. You find someone that you trust, that says things that resonate with you. Make sure that you get all your questions answered from your perspective therapist. Again, it doesn’t matter whether it’s online or in person, they need to be able to make you feel comfortable and confident that what they are offering is right for you.

Mindfulness Therapy via Skype

So Mindfulness Therapy is a way of working very directly with your emotions. It’s about promoting inner healing of the inner process that causes anxiety or depression or other forms of emotional suffering. And the primary thing we are looking for in Mindfulness Therapy is to develop more conscious awareness. That’s what mindfulness is. It’s her way of seeing things clearly without becoming lost in habitual patterns of reactivity.

So the primary issue is not the emotional pain, the core emotion itself, it’s the reactivity to it that causes the emotional suffering and that prevents the core emotion from healing.

This is really important if you’re working with PTSD, for example. Technically, it is not the memory, the experience that is the cause of your emotional suffering, it is all of that subjective habitual reactivity to that painful traumatic experience that causes your PTSD symptoms.

So Mindfulness Therapy is about developing a very direct, conscious, mindful relationship with the underlying emotions that are affecting your experience, that are determining the quality of your life, that are affecting your well-being.

So we don’t spend so much time talking about emotions. We spend a lot more time developing that direct conscious relationship with your emotions. This has been found to be the main factor that leads to healing.

It is not actually learning why you are anxious or depressed. It is not trying to understand your emotions. That has a limited effect, but that’s all very indirect and it doesn’t usually get to the root of the problem. So understanding is not enough. So conventional talk therapy is not very effective because it’s very indirect. It doesn’t really allow you to develop this conscious relationship with your emotions and with the reactive thoughts that feed your emotions.

So in Mindfulness Therapy, we don’t talk a lot about family history and trying to uncover the reasons why we are the way we are. Instead, we find the emotions, we find the reactive thoughts that feed those emotions, and we develop mindful presence with those emotions and thoughts.

Because the the primary issue is that all of those emotional reactions and thought reactions are operating unconsciously. They are subjective habitual reactions, they are conditioned reactions and they operate without our full conscious awareness. That is the real problem.

But the moment you start to bring conscious awareness to see these reactions, whether their emotional reactions or thought reactions when you see them clearly, that has the effect of neutralizing those reactions. It begins to isolate them.

Now, there may be a whole tangled web of interconnected reactions, but the message is that the more you see, the more you bring those reactions into conscious awareness, the more mindful you become, the more you’re able to neutralize those reactions, the less power they have.

In effect, you’re isolating the reactions from the underlying emotion. You are cutting off the fuel source that feeds the underlying anxiety or depression or traumatic suffering.

So you have to develop this consciousness to see all of the different unseen reactions that are the real cause of your suffering. The more you see, the freer you become. The more you see them, the faster emotional suffering heals.

And emotional suffering will typically heal itself. It doesn’t need you to understand it. What it needs you to do is stop feeding it with that reactivity. And if you stopped feeding it, it will resume a natural path of healing.

It’s rather like your relationship to a physical wound. If you are unconscious and continue to react unskillful, that inhibits the healing of the wound. But if you develop a conscious and compassionate relationship, a caring relationship, with the physical wound, then that accelerates this natural process of healing. The wound knows how to heal itself. The body knows how to heal. And you are creating the right conditions that allow it to heal.

So our emotional wounds are very, very similar to a physical wound. The only reason that the anxiety or depression persists is because of these blind habitual reactions that keep feeding it and prevent it from healing naturally. So, our primary job is to learn how to develop more mindful awareness, to be more present with your emotional pain.

The method for doing this is mindfulness meditation, which is what I specialize in and talk about in my book, “The Path of Mindfulness Meditation.” So we learn how to meditate on our emotions and on our thoughts, on our beliefs, on our memories, on our perceptions, on all of those blind, habitual conditioned reactions that are the foundation of our suffering.

The more that you see them clearly during your meditation, the more you promote healing. So mindfulness meditation is one of the best approaches for healing anxiety and depression and other forms of emotional suffering. But you must use it in a very direct way.

Meditating on the breath is not an effective approach to mindfulness meditation. The effective approach, as taught by the Buddha is about learning how to develop mindfulness of your emotional suffering. That is what is trying to heal and it can only heal when you bring mindful attention to that emotional suffering.

That was the primary teaching of the Buddha. So we learn to meditate on our mind. That is the primary teaching as I teach this for the application of mindfulness meditation. It is to meditate on the mind to facilitate healing the resolution of emotional suffering.

So if you’d like to learn more about how to apply mindfulness for healing, do please contact me. And if you like the idea of being able to talk to a therapist online using Skype, then please reach out to me and schedule a Skype therapy session.

This approach is very effective and most, if not all of my clients benefit immensely from learning how to meditate on their emotions to promote healing. And that can be very specific emotions like agoraphobia and driving anxiety and working with emotional trauma.

I also work with intrusive thoughts and intrusive memories. These are also psychological processes based on blind, habitual reactivity that really benefit tremendously from the application of mindfulness meditation and Mindfulness Therapy.

So please contact me if this interests you and schedule a Skype Therapy session. Thank you.

Online Therapist via Skype

Welcome! My name is Peter Strong and I am a professional psychotherapist and I offer online therapy over Skype.

Many people like to talk to a therapist over Skype rather than in-person because it is more comfortable as well as more convenient.

If you are suffering from anxiety, for example, then you will probably find it much more effective to talk to a therapist over Skype than in person because you will be more comfortable and open to incorporating the changes and advice that the psychotherapist offers you.

So, this is one of the main reasons why I have chosen to specialize in online therapy over Skype, because it is more effective for most people, especially if you are suffering from anxiety. But I also offer therapy over Skype for depression, and Skype therapy for addictions as well.

The same kind of principles apply here – People suffering from depression are often uncomfortable talking about their depression to a psychotherapist in-person. So, being able to talk to a therapist over Skype is going to be much, much easier for you.

Also, people suffering from an addiction are often uncomfortable talking about their addiction in a group format. So, having private sessions with an online therapist can be much more effective there as well.

If you would like to learn more about talking to a therapist online over Skype, simply go to my website and learn more about online therapy. When you feel ready, contact me. Simply email me and I will be happy to answer any questions you have about the online psychotherapy process.

If you would like to schedule a Skype therapy session with me, simply email me and we can arrange for a trial Skype therapy session. A trial session is a very good way of assessing if this is the right approach for you. There is no charge if you don’t feel that this is the right fit for you, but almost everyone I have worked with over the past ten years have found these mindfulness training sessions to be invaluable, often saying that they have seen more change from this approach than anything else they have tried, including medication and conventional talk therapy.

So, please email me and let’s schedule a Skype therapy trial session now and I will be happy to help you overcome anxiety, depression, addictions or any other emotional problems that you may be struggling with. So, I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you!

Online Mindfulness Therapy for Anxiety and Depression

The style of therapy that I provide is called Mindfulness Therapy, which is extremely effective for anxiety. It’s a way changing the underlying process that causes anxiety or depression. It’s a way of breaking free from those patterns of reactive thinking that sustain anxiety, depression and, of course, addiction, also.

We have to change the way we relate to our thoughts and emotions. The greatest obstacle to change is aversion and avoidance. During Mindfulness Therapy we pay particular attention to developing much more conscious awareness of our reactive thoughts to overcome the avoidance habit, and then we actually develop a friendly relationship with our emotional pain, our anxiety, our depression or even our negative thoughts. It’s extremely important because it’s the quality of this conscious friendly relationship to your emotions that allows them to change and allows you to change your reactive habits so that you are no longer overcome by reactive thinking.

It is not our usual habit to embrace painful emotions like anxiety, fear, depression, shame, guilt or anger with a friendly attitude; we are much more likely to run away from them or judge ourself very harshly for having such emotions or thoughts them. But it is a well-tested fact that the only way to free yourself from emotional suffering is to embrace those emotions with friendliness and compassion. During our sessions I will teach you how to do this through mindfulness training. The results are well worth the effort.

If you would like to learn more about Mindfulness Therapy and are interested in talking to an online therapist, please go to my website and email me, and I look forward to talking with you and helping you overcome your specific emotional problems through Online Mindfulness Therapy. Thank you!

Welcome! My name is Peter Strong and I am a professional online therapist. I offer online therapy over Skype for helping you overcome anxiety and depression and also for working with addictions, too.

So, as an online therapist, I specialize in providing very practical methods and techniques that you can apply yourself between therapy sessions. This is the most important thing that you should be learning from a therapist, any case. It should not be considered as a treatment option, because that doesn’t give you any skills that you can apply yourself. Good psychotherapy should not be regarded as a treatment, but rather as a way of teaching you more effective methods for working with anxiety and depression.

I specialize in Mindfulness Therapy, which is extremely practical and very effective for anxiety and depression. It teaches you how to change those underlying habitual patterns of reactive thinking that produce anxiety and depression.

Most of these habits are subconscious and not something that we are aware of most of the time. We are aware of the anxiety and depression, but not of the actual habits that create the anxiety and depression.

Mindfulness Therapy is very much about uncovering these habits and then changing them. It’s actually much easier than you may think to change anxiety and depression. The key is to look directly at the underlying process that is producing that emotional suffering. If you do that, then the changes you make will be very direct and very effective.

All habits rely fundamentally on unawareness; habits are unconscious by nature and rely on us blindly identifying with them when they get triggered and then acting on them with further reactivity, such as the proliferation of more reactive thinking, or behaviors.

By definition, mindfulness involves developing more and more conscious awareness of these blind habits, the habits that create anxiety or depression or the impulses of an addiction or OCD. This conscious awareness alone will have profound effects on decreasing the power of those habits.

Once we start interacting with our emotions with compassion and once we start uncovering the internal structure of the emotions and changing that structure, the habits become significantly weakened and eventually resolve themselves allowing them to be replaced by more functional and positive habits that lead to well-being.

Mindfulness Therapy gives you the tools to change the way you feel and to help you establish a much stronger sense of well-being in your life.

If you would like to learn more about Mindfulness Therapy and you would like to work with an online therapist such as myself, then please simply go to my website, learn more about online therapy over Skype and then email me and we can schedule a Skype therapy session.

Talk to a therapist online for psychological help through Skype

So mindfulness therapy, which is what I offer online via Skype is a very effective way of changing those emotional habits that create anxiety and depression. We do this by breaking free from the blind reactive habit of becoming identified and reactive. This is the central problem that most people face.

Thoughts, for example, are common triggers that trigger anxiety and what happens is that the instant that the thought arises it instantly triggers the underlying anxiety. So we work on breaking this compulsive reactive habit so that even if the thought arises you don’t have to react with anxiety or depression or any other emotional reaction. We learn to essentially isolate the triggers from the emotional reactions.

This is very, very important indeed for changing anxiety and depression. You have to stop feeding the underlying emotion through reactivity. When you stop feeding it then the emotion will begin a process of what is called “auto-resolution.” It will start to change itself if you don’t feed it. The analogy here is like a fire. If you stop feeding a fire with fuel then that fire will automatically begin to burn itself out and eventually it will completely burn itself out so there is no fire left at all.

The same principle applies to our emotions. If we stop feeding them through reactivity, through identification, through aversion and through avoidance, if we stop feeding them through these forms of reactivity, then those emotions will also burn themselves out. They will learn to change and resolve themselves. This is a very well demonstrated fact.

So Skype therapy is an exciting option. It’s very effective and it is just as effective as talking in-person if you’re interested in changing emotional habits like anxiety or depression or OCD or addiction or social anxiety disorder. Any of these kind of emotional habits can be changed very effectively by mindfulness-based Skype therapy. So if you’re interested in learning more to go to my website and email me.

I see Skype therapy clients throughout the USA. I’m based in Colorado but I also see many clients in the UK and Europe and as far away as Singapore and Japan and Australia. All you need for Skype therapy is a good internet connection and of course you need a copy of Skype to download it on your laptop or on your iPhone or iPad or whatever device you use. You also will needs to use PayPal account to make secure online payments for your Skype therapy sessions.

If you want to go ahead and schedule a Skype therapy session with me, simply go to my website and email me and we will exchange emails to find a time that works for you and for me, and it usually was quite quite well. If you are east of Colorado then it’s going to be later in the day so that often works very well, especially for clients in Europe and the UK because it will be evening time for them there.

So please feel free to email me to learn more about Skype therapy and how it can help you overcome anxiety, or how it can help you manage depression, or how it can help you with an addiction, or any other emotional problem.

Talk to a Therapist Online to Overcome Anxiety and Depression

If you are experiencing anxiety or panic attacks or depression you may consider talking to a therapist online. Seeing a therapist online is a very good choice and a very convenient way of getting help, and it’s generally a lot less intimidating than going to see a therapist in person.

So if you’d like to talk to a therapist online do please go to my website and then learn more about this process of Skype counseling that I offer and then e-mail me and we can schedule a time when we can have an online therapy session.

So the advantages of talking to a therapist online, as I said are ones of convenience and comfort. It is generally much more comfortable for you and far less anxiety-producing than seeing a psychotherapist in person.

So during the online therapy sessions I teach you very effective mindfulness-based methods for working with anxiety and depression. Most of my clients suffer from either anxiety or depression and they benefit tremendously when they start practicing the mindfulness techniques that I teach during the Skype sessions.

The central most important thing is to learn how to develop a conscious and friendly relationship with your emotions. The biggest mistake that I see over and over again is that people develop an aversion to their anxiety or depression, they run away from their emotions or they find them or they react to their anxiety with anger or hostility or resistance or self-criticism, etc.

The process of reactivity feeds the anxiety or depression. It only begins to change when you change your relationship to your emotions, so that’s why it’s so important to develop conscious and frankly relationship with your emotions. Then you create the right conditions in which they can change. And this is the whole basis of mindfulness therapy we learned to actually meditate on our anxiety and on how depression and any other emotions or thoughts that create suffering in the mind.

We learned to develop balance in relationship to our emotions and our thoughts. Learn how to break free from this process of habitual reactivity that feeds the anxiety or depression. When you do that then you stop feeding the fire of the anxiety or depression or any other emotion. When you stop feeding it, it begins to change and it begins to heal. So the second part of mindfulness therapy is learning how to help it heal, how to help your anxiety or depression heal itself.

And I will teach you exactly how to do this during these online therapy sessions. So, if you’d like to talk to a therapist online and you’d like to learn more about online psychotherapy in general, then please go to my website, and when you are ready to start you can email me and we can schedule a Skype therapy session. Thank you.

Talk to a psychotherapist online by Skype for help with anxiety and depression

So if you would like to talk with a therapist online for help with anxiety depression, addictions or any other psychological emotional problem that can benefit from psychotherapy then please do contact me through my website. So I provide online therapy over Skype for anxiety and depression, or OCD, for addictions and many other emotional psychological problems.

Mindfulness Therapy is very effective indeed for helping you break free from those habits that feed anxiety and depression. This is the main focus of training, how to break free from that reactive identification with our emotions, with our thoughts and with our beliefs and also with our memories too.

It’s just a habit. The thought or emotion gets triggered out of conditioning, out of habit. And then what tends to happen is that we just fall right into it, right into the grip of the emotion or the reactive thoughts or the memory, if it is traumatic, and then we proliferate that suffering.

So the key, the first step to breaking this habit of reactive identification is to develop mindful consciousness of these habits. Because when you bring consciousness to the habits that takes away their power, because habits only work when there’s no consciousness around; they are unconscious by their nature.

So how do you do this? Well we learn how to meditate on our mind. That means meditating on our emotions or thoughts, our traumatic memories, or emotionally charged beliefs, whatever they may be, that are limiting us and creating suffering.

We do not accept these habits. Instead we learn to meditate on them. So that means replaying the emotion, the memory or the thoughts in the mind, deliberately bringing it into the mind, then sitting with that mental object with mindfulness, with consciousness observing it.

And this is the important thing to understand here. The more that you become the Observer, the freer you become from the observed. When you are observing anxiety you become the Observer not the anxiety. So the action of observing consciously actually frees you from the anxiety.

And this is extremely important, to get this separation from the emotion or the thoughts or the memory or any other content of mind. If there’s no separation then you simply become a victim of those mental objects. You become consumed by them, overwhelmed by them, a slave to your emotions and your reactive thoughts.

But through deliberately training with them using mindfulness meditation we develop more and more freedom from those habitual thoughts and emotions. So that’s really important.

When you have established sufficient freedom, then you can begin to respond skillfully to help any unresolved emotion heal, and that’s the second, primary component if you like of Mindfulness Therapy or mindfulness meditation therapy.

We learn how to respond with compassion to any emotional suffering that we experience in the mind. We help it heal. We help it heal by establishing a conscious compassionate relationship with that part of ourself that’s in pain.

And this is very much like a parent-child relationship. You can think of the emotional pain, whether it’s anxiety or depression or guilt or shame or anger or poor self-esteem, whatever it might be, you can think of it as being like a child. The child is in pain. Your job is to develop your consciousness as a parent to that child to help it heal.

So that’s part of mindfulness meditation training, and I will teach you how to do this in great detail. It’s not just a question of reading a book about this; it’s not just feeling inspired and then struggling with it. No. You need very specific guidance and training on how to do this. But this approach works.

So please, if you’re interested in learning more about online therapy via Skype, then simply email me. If you would like to get started and start learning how to use mindfulness to work with your emotional suffering then e-mail me. I look forward to meeting you and helping you. Thank you.

Can I talk to a therapist online?

Greetings! Would you like to talk to a therapist online and get some effective help for overcoming your depression or anxiety? If so, do please CONTACT ME through my Contact Page and ask any questions you have about online therapy and I will be happy to answer them, and then when you feel ready, we can schedule an online therapy session.

Many people are choosing to talk to a therapist online over Skype because it’s very convenient and it’s also a very effective way for getting professional help and learning new strategies for managing difficult emotions.

We don’t always have to resort to using medications to treat anxiety or depression; there are alternatives, and talking to a therapist online provides one of these alternatives. At the end of the day, medications can only go so far in helping relieve symptoms of anxiety or depression. But medications will not change the underlying process that causes anxiety and depression.

That process is primarily psychological in nature. It is due to the way that you see emotions internally; it’s due to the internal imagery of the emotions that causes them to have power over you.

Change the imagery to promote healing

If you want to change anxiety and depression you MUST look at this underlying process and examine the underlying imagery that creates the anxiety or depression.

One example of this imagery that I am referring to is very common with people who are suffering from a phobia, for example. If you have a phobia of a spider then very clearly it’s not the external image of the spider that you see through your eyes that causes the panic anxiety, but the internal image that the mind creates when it sees that spider.

The nature of this imagery is almost certainly going to be very large, very vivid in color and probably very close, and it’s those features of the internal imagery that actually create the anxiety.

During online therapy sessions we will explore the internal imagery of your emotions and we will change that imagery through creative imagination.

The imagery simply arises out of habit, but habits can be changed. When you bring conscious awareness to examine that imagery, that brings with it some choice, and that allows you to change the imagery of your emotions. When you change that imagery the emotions change. It’s really as simple as that.

So, if you are interested in learning more about online therapy and you would like to talk to an online therapist for help in overcoming anxiety or depression or any other emotional problem that you may be struggling with, please go to my website and CONTACT ME and then we can schedule a Skype therapy session. Thank you.

I specialize in online Mindfulness Therapy which I deliver over Skype for the treatment of anxiety and depression, for help with addictions and many other common psychological and emotional difficulties that don’t require medical treatment.

Many people like the greater privacy offered by online therapy. It feels more comfortable in general if you don’t have to meet with a psychotherapist in person. So that’s one of the great advantages of online therapy. This greater privacy and greater comfort for you the client.

Another reason why people like online therapy is because it makes them feel more in charge of their recovery process and this can be very important especially if you are dealing with anxiety or depression or addiction. People want to feel empowered. They want to feel that they’re learning how to cope with their emotions and not just going to someone for treatment by some methodology or with medications.

Treatments don’t really help you change the underlying cause of your suffering. You have to work with your mind your self and work with the underlying habits that create your anxiety or depression or that fuel your addiction which is often simply a way of coping with depression or other extreme form of emotional suffering or stress.

So people often come to me for help with addictions. And again they like the anonymity and the privacy offered through online therapy for addiction. It means you can have your sessions without having to leave home. You don’t have to go to a facility to receive counseling.

You can basically work from home with me and I will teach you the necessary skills to manage your emotions so that you don’t become overwhelmed by your emotional reactions, whether that’s depression or anxiety or difficulty with intrusive thoughts or PTSD, trying to deal with emotional trauma.

It’s the same process. You have to learn how to work with those memories and emotions and thought patterns yourself. And I will teach you how to do this through with a methods of Mindfulness Therapy which are amazingly effective for working with the mind.

Talk to a therapist online over Skype

Welcome. My name is Peter Strong, and I am a professional online mindfulness therapist. I specialize in Mindfulness Therapy because I find that to be the most effective way of working with anxiety, depression, and also addictions.

If you would like to speak to a therapist online, please go to my website, the link is below, and email me and then I can answer your questions and explain to you in more detail how online therapy works.

All you need to talk to a therapist online is an internet connection, Skype, and PayPal to make your secure online payments after each session.

The first session is called a Trial Session, which means there is no upfront payment and in fact payment is made on your satisfaction, on your total satisfaction with the outcome of that session.

So, this a way for you to get a sense of how online therapy works, how I work as an online therapist, and to see if this is the right approach for you and if you wish to continue online therapy with me. So, if you would like to talk to a therapist online, do please go to my website and email me.

So, what do we do during these online therapy sessions? Well, what I focus on is teaching you how to overcome those underlying patterns of reactive thinking and emotional reactivity that cause your anxiety or depression.

This really quite different than conventional talk therapy, which is more about having an avenue to release your emotional stress to someone who is sympathetic and willing to listen and encouraging you to express yourself.

That is, of course, very important; and important part of good psychotherapy. But, in my experience, talk therapy is not enough. We have to look at changing that underlying process. We have to learn how to break free from the habitual patterns of negative reactive thinking.

And, this is where mindfulness is so effective, because it is a very powerful awareness skill that allows you to explore that underlying structure of your emotions. It allows you to see those patterns and it allows you to change those patterns.

More than this, Mindfulness Therapy also allows you to explore how emotional reactions work, themselves. Now, emotions are really quite different than thoughts, their primary language is not words but it is imagery. Imagery is the natural language of emotions.

When we say, for example, “I feel overwhelmed,'” that give us a clue to the internal imagery of the emotion. We literally see the emotion above us, at a higher position, weighing down on us. We feel OVER-whelmed by the emotion. That is a part of the imagery that makes the emotion work.

So, when we explore this imagery with Mindfulness Therapy, we see all the details of how that emotional imagery works and we can change that emotional imagery through mindfulness. We can explore making all kinds of modifications in that internal imagery that allows the emotions to neutralize itself, to discharge itself, to change. We teach the emotion how to change itself, essentially.

Emotional imagery, just like reactive thinking is primarily habit, and habit thrives on not being seen. Mindfulness is all about exploring in great detail what is actually happening; it’s about exploring that structure. It is about learning how to become a scientist, basically, exploring how things work in your mind.

So, this is one reason why Mindfulness Therapy is so powerful. Another reason why Mindfulness Therapy works is because it teaches you how to change your whole relationship to your thoughts and emotions. It teaches you how to observe your emotions without becoming overwhelmed by them, without becoming identified with them, without becoming reactive.

So, if you would like to speak to a therapist online, do please go to my website and email me and I will explain this in more detail, and then we can schedule a trial session.

So, I look forward to hearing from you and I look froward to working with you to overcome your anxiety, depression, addiction, or other emotional problems. Thank you.

Skype Therapy – Talk with a therapist online now!

Welcome! My name is Peter Strong and I am a professional psychotherapist and I specialize in Mindfulness Therapy, which works extremely well online through Skype.

Skype Therapy is an excellent way of learning the strategies that you need to work with difficult emotions such as anxiety and depression or even addictions.

Because you can talk to each other and see each other, the quality of Skype therapy is really no different than being in an office with a psychotherapist. I offer both in-person psychotherapy and also online Skype therapy and quite frankly I prefer Skype therapy.

Clients seem to do better with this format because they tend to feel more empowered, more in control of the process; they are less intimidated and feel more at ease. It is particularly useful if you are seeking more anonymity, more privacy in your work with a therapist.

Being able to talk to a therapist online from your own home is also, of course, very much more comfortable for you and this will improve the quality of psychotherapy.

The Mindfulness Therapy that I offer is extremely effective for anxiety and also depression. It’s a way of helping you break free from those patterns of habitual reactivity that feed anxiety and depression. That’s the biggest problem that most people deal with and breaking free from those habitual patterns is what really makes the difference, and there is nothing better than Mindfulness Therapy for doing that.

CBT is also a good choice; you should look at that as well. CBT is excellent for working with reactive thoughts, but Mindfulness Therapy is best if you want to work with the emotions themselves.

If you would like to learn more about Skype Therapy, simply email me when you would like to schedule a Skype Therapy session.

So, I look forward to hearing from you and I look forward to working with you and helping you overcome those patterns of habitual reactivity that may cause your anxiety or depression. Thank you!

Chat to an Online Therapist

Welcome! My name is Peter Strong and I am a professional psychotherapist living in Boulder Colorado and I offer Online Therapy via Skype. This allows you to chat to a therapist online to get help in managing difficult emotions such as anxiety, depression, stress, PTSD, addictions, or relationship problems.

Whatever the emotional problem that you are struggling with, it’s often very sensible to get help, and being able to chat to an online therapist is a very good and convenient option.

It means that you can do it from the comfort of your own home or your office or wherever you are, and if you are traveling or living abroad, this can be a tremendously beneficial service, just to be able to talk to a therapist online to help you manage difficult emotions that you may be going through.

So, how do we get started? Well it’s very simple. The first thing is, please visit my website, counselingtherapyonline.com, read the many pages on that website to learn about the style of therapy that I provide, and try to get a sense of whether this is the right kind of therapy for you. I mean, by “therapy” we are talking about a process of helping you learn strategies to manage emotions.

It’s not about labeling yourself as ill or labeling yourself as having a mental problem as such, it’s about learning techniques to manage emotions. That’s really the goal of online therapy, or the goal of working with an online psychotherapist.

Of course, if you are suffering from a clinical medical condition then you must consult with your doctor and follow a medical route, which may involve prescribed medications. But for most people, certainly the people that I meet in my practice, they are not clinically ill, they are simply struggling with emotions.

We all struggle with emotions. We are not taught how to deal with anxiety and depression or stress or disappointment or guilt, or any one of an infinite number of emotional challenges that we face as part of our everyday life and relationships. So, the purpose of this Online Therapy Service is to give you skills to manage these challenges.

And, the form of psychotherapy that I offer in these online chat sessions via Skype is called Mindfulness Therapy. And, this is a very exciting, very interesting, very gentle form of modern psychotherapy based on Buddhist Psychology, and an Eastern approach, which is rather more positive in outlook and treats you as a whole person rather than someone who has to be fixed.

So, in Mindfulness Therapy, the whole approach is to learn how to, essentially, sit with your emotions without becoming overwhelmed by them. How, to sit with anxiety, stress or anger and make friends with them rather than push them away or avoid them, which is, of course, our habit.

Most emotional reactions are just habits, and what makes a habit strong, what make it persist, is, primarily, unawareness. If you don’t see the habit, the emotional reactive habit, then it just continues to operate subconsciously and it just ruins our life, it runs our life for us.

So, the first part of the Mindfulness Therapy that I teach during these online sessions is about awakening to your emotional habits. The more you see them, the less power they have, the more choice you have. This is a very important and central principle of Mindfulness Therapy.

But, the next part of Mindfulness Therapy goes well beyond that. And that is that it teaches you how to work with those emotions in a positive way that leads to their healing and their transformation, and this can only happen when you establish a conscious, aware relationship with your emotions, painful as they may be.

You have to learn to make friends with them if they are to change. If you resist them, they will not change; if you avoid them, they will not change.

But, if you actually make friends with them, and I’m talking about making friends with anger, with negative thoughts, with pain, with guilt, with traumatic memories…When you can learn to do that, then they truly start to change. So, this is a little bit about Mindfulness Therapy.

If you would like to learn more about Mindfulness Therapy and the online chat sessions that I provide, please visit my website and send me an email and let’s find out if this approach is right for you. So, I look forward to your correspondence and to meeting you in an online therapy chat session. Thank you!

The Mindfulness Therapy Approach

Welcome. My name is Peter Strong. I’m a professional psychotherapist specializing in the treatment of anxiety and depression and also addictions using mindfulness therapy. So if you’d like to talk to a therapist online and you like the Mindfulness Therapy approach then please contact me and we can schedule a Skype Therapy session.

All my therapy sessions are via Skype. It’s very important that you use Skype or face time so that you can see each other. If you can see each other then the communication will be much better and is really just as good as meeting a therapist in person, especially if you are interested in an approach like Mindfulness Therapy that’s focused on teaching you practical ways of working with your anxiety and depression or other emotional conditions yourself.

This is the focus of Mindfulness Therapy. It Is about empowering you, giving you the tools to work with difficult emotions that need healing, and I will teach you during our online therapy sessions how to use mindfulness to promote healing of anxiety, depression and other forms of emotional suffering.

So the mindfulness approach is really one of building conscious attention around the emotions that are bothering you. It’s about turning towards your anxiety or depression rather than trying to run away from them. The avoidance reactions are quite natural and common, but unfortunately if you avoid the emotional pain it cannot heal. So since our mission is to heal anxiety or depression we must generate more conscious awareness around the emotions that are in pain.

We effectively see those emotions as being what they really are, which are mental objects. They are habits that get triggered and appear in the mind when they are triggered as mental objects. We learn to relate to them in that way as mental objects instead of becoming identified with them.

So we do this by meditating on our emotions. We place them as the primary objects of meditation so they become an object of meditation. And this reinforces our freedom from reactive identification with those emotions. If you are able to observe them then that position of being the observer is free from the emotion, is not conditioned by it. It’s like being able to observe a fire.

It means that you are free from being burned by that fire. Or if you can observe a poisonous snake or other poisonous animal. If you observe it, you’re conscious of it, then it cannot hurt you. Really its power to hurt you is a product of not seeing, the absence of consciousness, where it becomes habitual, and that’s the main mechanism behind emotional suffering.

Whether that’s anxiety or depression or anything else it’s habitual in nature. It becomes established as a conditioned habit. So our first job is to see that habit clearly and restore consciousness to it because habits cannot thrive when they are illuminated by conscious awareness. They begin to lose strength.

So that’s the first step in Mindfulness Therapy and the Mindfulness Therapy approach. It’s learning to build this conscious relationship with your emotions where you are the observer and the emotion becomes the object.

The second approach that we cultivate when we meditate on our emotions is the response of compassion. So this is taught in a very specific way in the Mindfulness Therapy system that I have developed over the years. This is a process whereby we develop compassion towards that specific emotion itself as an object.

It’s rather like the relationship between a parent and a child. You can think of the emotional object as being like a child. It’s conditioned. It has a limited consciousness and it’s not very good at healing its own pain. It requires its parent to help in that healing.

So we establish this same kind of relationship with our emotions, with our anxiety, with our depression, with the inner critic if that’s operating, with grief, with sadness, with anger, with negative thoughts, whatever form that emotional suffering takes. We need to establish consciousness around it. That’s mindfulness. And we respond with compassion to that emotion helping the emotion heal itself.

One of the primary methods that we employ for healing emotion, besides establishing this relationship as parent and child, which is of course very healing in itself, is by developing awareness of the imagery that is behind the emotion.

So all emotions are based around imagery. How large is the anxiety? What color is it? What position does it have in your visual field? Do you see it above you? Many people describe their anxiety or depression as being overwhelming or weighing heavily on them. So this is visual language and it reflects the inner imagery of the emotion.

So seeing that imagery is very important because once you see it consciously then you can help it change. When the imagery changes the emotion changes and this actually is the primary mechanism through which emotions heal naturally. In our mindfulness work we are simply speeding up this natural healing process.

When an emotion heals it will become smaller. It will move to a lower level in your visual field. It will become less intense in color. It becomes faded, it becomes more distant, and so on.

So we explore in our response of compassion how to help that emotion heal itself. In this way we train the emotion to heal and resolve itself, and these resolution pathways, as they are called, become established as new habits, but habits that are a positive and lead to wellbeing, rather than reactive habits that simply feed the fire of anxiety or depression.

So if you’re interested in mindfulness and the mindfulness approach for healing emotional suffering and you’d like to schedule online therapy with me, then please contact me and we can schedule an online therapy session at a time that works for you.

I see people throughout the world. All you need is a good Internet connection and a quiet place for your sessions and then we can begin. So please contact me.

Talk to a therapist online via Skype for effective help

Welcome! My name is Peter Strong and I am a professional online therapist. If you would like to talk to a therapist online, the best way to do that is to find a therapist who offers Skype therapy sessions.

Skype allows you to talk in real time and it’s really equivalent to meeting face-to-face in the therapist’s office, but of course, it’s much more convenient for you because you don’t have to leave your home or office, or if you are traveling it’s much easier to talk to a therapist via Skype and continue your sessions wherever you live.

So, talking to a therapist through Skype is one of the most effective ways to get ongoing help for managing difficult emotional problems such as chronic anxiety, depression, and also for help with addictions as well.

Many of my clients live abroad or they live in the rural areas of the US and find it difficult to find a local therapist to help them work with anxiety, depression, addictions or other emotional problems.

So, if you are interested in learning more about talking to a therapist online via Skype, do please visit my website and learn more about the Mindfulness Therapy approach that I offer via Skype.

People seek this form of mindfulness-based therapy as an alternative to the older style of talk therapy, which may help with relieving symptoms but it does very little to change the underlying cause of your anxiety, depression or addiction.

The system of Mindfulness Therapy that I developed many years ago now and talk about in my book, ‘The Path of Mindfulness Meditation’, is very much focused on helping you change your underlying relationship to the very process that creates anxiety or depression.

The central theme of Mindfulness Therapy is learning how to break the habit of becoming identified and overwhelmed by habitual reactive thinking and reactive emotions. We tend to get lost in our thoughts and our emotional habits and this simply feeds the emotional problem whether it is anxiety, depression or addiction.

Learn how to meditate on your emotions

The best approach for overcoming habitual reactivity is to deliberately train with each reactive thought and the underlying emotions. We do this by making them the object of meditation. I will teach you how to meditate on your emotions and it is actually much easier than you may think.

With a little practice you will be able to completely transform your relationship with your anxiety or depression so that you can stay present with them but without becoming overwhelmed by them. This is the first step in meditation that we call establishing equanimity. You become the observer and the emotion becomes an object that you can observe without reacting to it.

Look at the habitual reactive thought that feed emotional suffering

The second step is investigation. When you have stopped reacting you will be able to see the emotion much clearer. The first thing that you will see are the patterns of reactive thoughts that get triggered by the emotion. You train with these in the same way, converting them into objects that you can see as the observer and establishing equanimity towards those thoughts too.

As you train yourself in mindfulness practice, you become less and less reactive and less caught up in the emotion and its reactive thoughts.

Establish inner compassion towards the emotions themselves

The third step is to develop inner compassion for those emotions that are in pain. It really helps if you can see them not as the enemy, but as being like a child in pain. When you can bring this natural compassion to bare on your emotions, which are almost always based around fear, then those emotions begin to heal.

The more the compassion, the faster they heal. The real problem is that we tend to do the exact opposite: we react with hatred and more fear which inhibits healing.

Contact me to get started with online mindfulness therapy

So, that’s what I focus on in the online therapy sessions that I offer via Skype. Please feel free to contact me through email and we can discuss further how Mindfulness Therapy and online therapy can help you manage your emotions more effectively.

Talk to a psychotherapist online via Skype for Psychological Help

Welcome! My name is Peter Strong. I’m a professional psychotherapist and I specialize in online therapy that I offer via Skype.

So if you like the idea of talking to a therapist online rather than in person, if you like the greater convenience and also the greater privacy offered by online therapy, then do please reach out to me by email.

If you’re looking for psychological help with anxiety or depression or addiction or other emotional problems that benefit from psychotherapy and you like the idea of learning how to work with your emotions more effectively without resorting to medications, then please contact me and let’s schedule a trial Skype therapy session.

It is more comfortable for you

Most of my clients really prefer online therapy to meeting a therapist in person. It is just so much more convenient and it’s more comfortable too for you. You can conduct your therapy sessions from the comfort of your home, or place of work if you can find a quiet place at work to conduct your sessions. I often work with people in their cars. They will have the therapy session in their car! It is a great space that is comfortable and private.

It’s convenient, something you can easily schedule into your busy schedule. The other advantage is that it’s generally much more effective when working with anxiety conditions, and for people suffering from agoraphobia, online therapy is quite essential.

I teach Mindfulness Therapy

So the style of psychotherapy that I teach online is called Mindfulness Therapy. And this is a system of psychotherapy that I developed some years ago now and it uses a lot of mindfulness and Buddhist teachings as a way of learning how to better manage our emotions and our thoughts, and so on.

So the biggest problem that I come across when working with people suffering from anxiety or depression or addiction or OCD is this problem whereby you become identified with the emotions or thoughts or beliefs or memories in the mind. This process of reactive identification, as I call it, is really at the center of emotional suffering, whether it’s anxiety or depression.

So all emotions are basically habits that get started in the mind, often in childhood. So an emotion like anxiety or depression or shame or low self-esteem, these get started in childhood. This is well known. The child is not able to process these emotions so they tend to get stuck and they grow and then we develop layers and layers of identification around these emotions, these core emotions as we call them.

So in Mindfulness Therapy we spend a lot of time really developing a different kind of relationship with these emotions so that instead of just identifying with your anxiety or fear or guilt or shame or depression we learn to see those emotions as objects in the mind. We developed what is called objective consciousness. And this is quite different than this subject of consciousness that occurs when you become identified with your emotions.

Develop Objective Consciousness – Mindfulness

It is quite different being able to see the emotions and thoughts that support those emotions as objects. The analogy we often use here is it’s like learning how to keep your balance on the bank of a river. If you can maintain balance looking at the river then the river has no power at all to hurt you. The problem comes about when we lose balance and when we fall into the river, then we suffer, and it’s the same with our emotions our thoughts our memories even traumatic memories.

The problem is not so much in the mind itself, it is in our identification with these mental objects. The way that we just fall in to our emotions and we become prisoners of those emotions. We become controlled by our anxiety or depression or addiction.

So breaking free from this reactive identification is a vital process in any form of psychotherapy, and it’s the very first thing that we focus on in Mindfulness Therapy.

So we learn to develop balance in relationship to our emotions. We then learn how to respond to our emotions in a way that helps them heal.

So we are focused very much on healing those core emotions and that happens when we establish a non-reactive, objective relationship with those emotions. If we keep reacting to the emotions they simply grow and proliferate and create more reactivity. And that stops the core emotions from healing.

So reactivity, in general, is a problem. With mindfulness therapy we look very carefully to see any kind of reactivity that’s going on in the mind and especially the reactions to those core emotions. So the way that your anxiety takes form in the mind, the way it takes form in thoughts for example.

So in mindfulness therapy we understand that emotion precedes thoughts, it is not the other way round. If you are depressed you will start generating depressed thoughts.

If you are suffering from anxiety you will start generating anxiety-based thoughts. If you’re suffering from chronic anger you will start generating angry thoughts.

So these reactions, these thoughts reactions, are products of the emotion, they’re not a cause of the emotion, they are products. But they do have a very powerful feedback mechanism whereby they reinforce the underlying emotion and they stop it from healing.

So when we bring objective consciousness or mindfulness to bear on thoughts then we are able to essentially break free from the habit of reacting.

So we can break the habit of reactive thinking that feeds the anxiety or depression. So that’s the second step, if you like, of mindfulness therapy. It is looking for all of these reactive thoughts that have become so habitual and breaking free from their influence by developing more objective consciousness, more mindfulness.

So that’s an important part of the healing process, is cutting off the fuel source for the emotion, if you like.

Working with Emotional Imagery

There are lots of other things we do in mindfulness therapy. I won’t describe them all now, but one other thing to consider, and something that I will teach during these sessions, is working with the imagery of the emotions, particularly, but also thoughts as well.

How you see the emotion in the mind, where you see it in the body for example, is very, very important. This constitutes the structure of the emotion and that is what actually causes that emotion to take form.

So emotional imagery is critical and we look very carefully at the emotional imagery of your emotions, how they actually work. When you are able to see this imagery you can change it. In the same way, you can break the habit that produces that emotional imagery. You can look at the imagery and begin to change it into a form that neutralizes that emotion, that helps it heal. And remember, healing is the primary objective in mindfulness therapy.

So we work a lot with imagery and this is very, very effective indeed, especially with traumatic memories. When you change the imagery of a traumatic memory you change the emotional intensity of that memory. When you change the imagery sufficiently, the memory is no longer traumatic, it is no longer able to generate trauma.

Would you like to get started with online mindfulness therapy?

So if you would like to learn more about how to work with your emotions, how to work with emotions using mindfulness-based methods and techniques, then do please contact me and we can schedule a session.

This approach is very, very effective. It’s very direct. It’s very focused. It’s quite different than conventional counseling. It is really looking at the mechanism that generates your emotional suffering and then changing it.

If you’d like to learn more about the mindfulness approach to healing anxiety and depression without depending on drugs, then please contact me. Thank you.

Talk to a therapist online – The Mindfulness Therapy Approach for Treating Anxiety & Depression

Learn how to overcome anxiety or depression. Talk with a Therapist Online through Skype for highly effective online treatment for Depression and Anxiety, Social Anxiety Disorder and Agoraphobia, Addictions, PTSD and Traumatic Stress or any other emotional problems not requiring medical treatment. Email me to learn more about this online counseling service and to arrange for a online therapy session with me.

Most of my clients have tried medications and conventional talk therapy / counseling but have not received the relief they want. This is understandable, because mediations and indirect talking about your emotions is not sufficient to change the underlying habitual process that creates and feeds anxiety and depression. You need to address these directly, and this is the focus of Mindfulness Therapy, the approach that I favor and find to be most effective for producing lasting change.

Many people come to me after trying many different approaches: counseling, psychotherapy in-person and also medications, and they tell me that while these approaches sometimes help them overcome temporary symptoms of anxiety or panic attacks or or depression they don’t seem to provide any kind of lasting improvements in their condition. And for me this is not at all surprising because medications and general talk type therapy does not really change the underlying patterns of habitual thinking and emotional reactivity that feed anxiety and depression. They only treat symptoms and that’s not enough.

In my opinion we need to be able to change those underlying habits that creates your emotional suffering and that’s what I offer during the online therapy sessions that I provide.

I specialize in mindfulness therapy. Mindfulness is an extremely effective way of changing habits. It allows you to develop a conscious and compassionate relationship with your emotions and with your thoughts. And this is essential. You have to learn how to sit with your emotions and thoughts without becoming identified with them and without becoming reactive.

If you can do that then you stop feeding those habits, basically. And this creates the ideal conditions whereby the habit of anxiety or depression or any other emotional psychological form of suffering will begin to resolve itself. If you don’t feed it it will resolve itself. Also if you stop feeding it and you establish a good relationship with your emotions then you’re in a much better position to be able to help your emotions resolve themselves.

You learn how to interact with them with more consciousness and more compassion the same way that you might relate to a child or another person who is in pain. If you are reactive you are not going to be able to help them overcome their emotional suffering. You have to be non-reactive in your relationship to them and it’s exactly the same with our emotions.

We have to learn to be non-reactive in relationship to our anxiety of fear of panic or depression or obsessions with the ever emotional suffering that you are experiencing. You have to establish a good relationship with them then you can actually help those emotions change themselves and heal. This is one of the central themes in Mindfulness Therapy is building this relationship.

And the second important concept for you to understand is that your anxiety, your depression, your suffering is already trying to heal itself. It’s only because of the problem of reactivity that gets in the way of it healing itself. So that’s a very important thing to understand. It’s not so much us trying to fix or change her anxiety or depression, it’s allowing them to change and heal in a natural way by themselves, and the less reactive you become the the more this happens.

So, if you’d like to talk to a therapist online do please go to my website and learn more about this online therapy service and then contact me and we can schedule a session and you can see for yourself the power of developing mindfulness in relationship to your emotions. Thank you.

So, being able to see a therapist online is a very convenient option for you to consider, especially if you are living in an area that does not have an adequate supply of local therapists, and particularly if you are looking for mindfulness therapy, which is becoming a very popular choice these days for the treatment of anxiety and depression. If you are living abroad, then also, being able to see a therapist online maybe an excellent thing for you to consider. I see people online all over the world, mostly in North America, where I am based, but also in the UK and Western Europe, the Middle East, and as far away as Australia.

In my experience it’s equally as effective as meeting in person as long as you can see each other, and Skype allows you to do that and that’s why I offer all my online therapy sessions using Skype, because of the great advantage of being able to see each other as well as speak to each other. This makes it infinitely more effective than email counseling or chat therapy or other forms of therapy that don’t use a video format.

So, if you are interested in seeing a therapist online for effective mindfulness therapy to help you overcome your anxiety or depression, do please contact me.

The style of psychotherapy that I specialize in and have been teaching over the last ten years or so is called Mindfulness Therapy, and mindfulness-based psychotherapy is, in my opinion, the best available method for working with anxiety and depression. It teaches you how to change the relationship that you have with your mind, with your emotions, with your thoughts, with your memories, including traumatic memories.

It’s very important to learn how to essentially sit with these emotions and thoughts without becoming overwhelmed by them. That’s the most central part of mindfulness training: to be able to form a non-reactive relationship with your mind so that you don’t become overwhelmed by your emotional reactions.

When you can establish a relationship with your emotions and thoughts and traumatic memories, then you’re in a position to be able to help those emotional reactions heal and change substantially, and that’s the second part of Mindfulness Therapy, learning how to heal anxiety and depression so that they are no longer triggered by thoughts or experiences.

See an Online Psychotherapist for Anxiety and Depression

So if you would like to see an online psychotherapist via Skype for help with anxiety or depression, addiction or other common psychological problems, I invite you to go to my website to learn more about the benefits of online psychotherapy.

It’s very convenient and it’s also very effective, and there are a number of studies that show that online therapy is just as effective as in person therapy as long as you can see each other. I would say that’s the most important thing and that’s why I offer my Online Therapy Service over Skype.

So Skype allows you to see each other in real time and this improves the communication considerably and this is why I consider it to be just as effective as meeting in person.

There are many advantages of online therapy, of course. You might find it difficult to find a psychotherapist in your area if you’re living in a rural area or if you’re living abroad in a non English speaking country. Then it may be difficult to find someone to talk to.

Also many people like the greater sense of autonomy that online therapy offers. So being able to talk to a therapist online gives us a greater sense of control. It is more empowering and in general online therapy is directed towards helping you resolve your underlying anxiety or depression.

It helps you manage the underlying cause of your psychological suffering and gives you the tools to overcome those underlying processes that create anxiety or depression.

Conventional talk therapy can be beneficial, but often it does not alter the the underlying process that creates your anxiety and depression.

This also applies to the use of medications – taking anti-anxiety medications or antidepressants may reduce symptoms for a while, but medications are not effective for healing the underlying process that generates your anxiety or depression.

The school of psychotherapy that I teach online is called Mindfulness Therapy, which can be very powerful for overcoming chronic anxiety as well as for treating chronic depression or other common psychological issues resulting from conditioned negative thinking. Most of my students see quite significant changes after the first couple of sessions of Mindfulness Therapy.

Welcome! My name is Peter Strong and I am a professional online psychotherapist. If you would like to talk to a psychotherapist online do please go to my website and send me an email and then we can schedule a Skype therapy session.

I have been offering online psychotherapy for many years now and have seen tremendous benefits for my clients. There is no doubt that the online therapy format using Skype is just as effective as in-person psychotherapy, especially for the style of therapy that I offer, which is called Mindfulness Therapy.

This is dependent less on developing a relationship with your therapist and more on teaching you practical skills that you can use to overcome difficult emotions such as chronic anxiety or depression. And that, I feel is the most important thing – to give you the tools that will help you overcome your specific emotional problems, and that can be taught very well online.

So, Mindfulness Therapy is a way of working with emotions like anxiety and depression, or addiction or compulsion or phobias or panic attacks. It’s a way of working with difficult emotions by essentially changing the habit of the way that we react to these emotions.

So, emotions get triggered by thoughts or by external events and then we get lost in the conditioned reactions that ensue.

As Victor Frankl said in his famous quote, there is a space between stimulus and reaction and in that space there is choice. That space is what we develop during mindfulness training. It is the space of consciousness. It is the space that opens up when we become mindful of the triggers that trigger our anxiety or depression or compulsion, and the subjective emotional reactions that are conditioned to those triggers.

We can become mindful of both, both the triggers and our habitual reactions. When you become mindful you break that chain of reactivity that feeds and reinforces anxiety or depression, and that is a very important step. The most important step of all, really, is to break that habit that feeds and proliferates emotional suffering.

When you develop a conscious and mindful relationship with your anxiety or depression then that brings in the other factor associated with consciousness, which is choice – Choice to respond to your anxiety, or to the triggers, or to negative thought patterns, or negative behaviors – the choice to respond in ways that are not reactive but are imbued with natural innate intelligence.

You can begin to change those patterns into more positive patterns if you have choice, and that is the second factor of Mindfulness Therapy. It is a way of developing more choice in how you relate to your mind and to the triggers that triggered those emotional reactions.
