To break free from OCD and obsessive-intrusive thoughts you MUST learn how to neutralize the underlying emotion, usually fear, that fuels intrusive thoughts and compulsive behaviors.

Treating OCD through Online Mindfulness Therapy

OCD treatment without medication

If you are looking for an online therapist for help with OCD, then I invite you to contact me and tell me more about your particular struggles with obsessive compulsive disorder.

I offer online therapy through Skype for the treatment of OCD and also for help in reducing intrusive thoughts, intrusive memories and intrusive imagery, which can be very distressing for many people.

The approach that I use is called Mindfulness Therapy, which is extremely effective for working with reactive thoughts and memories and for reducing the frequency of obsessive, intrusive thoughts as well as reducing their intensity, until they no longer are a problem.

Normal thoughts go through a simple cycle of arising and passing and do so in a relatively short period of time, but OCD thoughts do not resolve but persist and often lead to the proliferation of even more thoughts. This stage of reactive proliferation feeds the underlying emotion, usually fear-based, that fuels OCD.

The key to breaking the cycle of reactive thinking, obsessive compulsive thinking, is to develop a different relationship to those intrusive thoughts or memories or images. We have to develop a mindfulness-based relationship, which means that it’s a relationship based on opening to the experience and staying present with the experience of the thought or the image as an observer, we have to learn to be able to observe the thoughts or image without becoming lost in that intrusive thought. We have to learn to stay present with the obsessive thought, without becoming reactive and converting into some compulsive behavior or action.

The mindfulness approach is one of the most effective approaches available for working with OCD and intrusive thoughts. I will teach you during our Skype therapy sessions together, very precise methods of working with your thoughts using mindfulness that will allow you to develop this objective consciousness that is so essential for breaking the habit of reactive-obsessive thinking.

With the mindfulness approach, most people see dramatic improvements within a very short time, often within three or four sessions.

The mindfulness approach is about teaching you new methods to work practically with your intrusive thoughts, to neutralize them and heal the underlying emotional energy that’s feeding those thoughts.

This cannot be done by just talking about your thoughts or emotions. And it cannot be done through willpower. It has to be done by changing your relationship to your thoughts. And when that relationship is right, then the healing process begins. But you must develop an open, mindful relationship with your thoughts and emotions.

Mindfulness is the combination of openness, non reactivity, friendliness and compassion. These are the qualities that promote healing. Just trying to understand why you are feeling the way you are reacting is not sufficient.

Most people with OCD fall into the habit of avoidance and aversion. They try to block out intrusive thoughts and feelings. This is not effective and will actually reinforce the underlying fear because avoidance and aversion are based on fear, themselves, which will simply feed the underlying emotional suffering that is feeding the intrusive, obsessive thoughts or memories.

So we need to learn to develop a different relationship with our emotions if they are to heal. And that’s the central focus of Mindfulness Therapy.

And if you’re interested in working with an online therapist to overcome your OCD, then I invite you to contact me.

Online therapy is an excellent choice and works just as well as in-person therapy, providing you use Skype or Zoom or FaceTime, because you need to see each other for effective communication.

Online Mindfulness-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for OCD

If you wish to talk with a psychotherapist online, then visit my website to learn about Online Psychotherapy through Skype for the treatment of anxiety and depression, addictions, OCD, PTSD, Emotional Trauma and other forms of emotional suffering not requiring medical treatment.

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

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

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

Welcome. My name is Peter Strong and I’m a professional mindfulness therapist using a system of mindfulness therapy that I developed many years ago now, that’s extremely effective for treating obsessive-compulsive disorder or OCD.

So, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy for OCD basically teaches you how to break free from the habit of reactive thinking, that is falling into the stream of reactive thinking, of rumination or worrying that might get triggered in the minds.

This is a very important step in cutting off the fuel that that fuels anxiety or depression. So, OCD is simply the result of a process where we become habitually identified with thoughts, and when we become trapped in our thinking. The result is that the thoughts tend to propagate more thoughts and this amplifies the reactive thinking, which in turn amplifies the underlying emotional obsession or anxiety or depression that feeds the OCD.

So, learning to break this habit of reactive identification is extremely important and is the principal focus of the mindfulness therapy that I teach online via Skype.

If you’d like to learn more about online mindfulness-based cognitive therapy for OCD, simply go to my websites and then email me. You can ask any questions you might have about mindfulness therapy for OCD and I’d be happy to explain to you how the mindfulness therapy approach can work for you.

When you feel ready you can schedule a Skype therapy session with me at a time that works for you, and then begin to teach you how to apply mindfulness for overcoming obsessive thinking and for overcoming the anxiety and depression that’s associated with obsessive-compulsive thinking.


Best Online Therapy Service for OCD

OCD Therapy Online over Skype

Welcome. My name is Peter Strong and I’m a professional psychotherapist based in Boulder Colorado. And I offer online mindfulness therapy for the treatment of anxiety and depression and also obsessive-compulsive disorder.

If you’re looking for online therapy for OCD, then I invite you to go to my website and learn more about this therapy service and about mindfulness therapy and then please contact me to schedule an online therapy session to help you manage your OCD.

OCD therapy online is very effective and most of my clients see quite substantial changes after the first three to four sessions of online Mindfulness Therapy. The key to working with us OCD is to learn how to change your relationship to your thoughts, to your beliefs, to your memories and to your emotions.

The biggest problem is that we simply become controlled by thoughts, we lose perspective. We become a prisoner of our thoughts and also our beliefs. So mindfulness training is the process of learning to break this imprisonment by thoughts. We do this by learning to meditate on the mind. This is called mindfulness meditation.

Mindfulness meditation is the process of learning to sit with your thoughts, emotions, memories and beliefs without becoming reactive, without becoming identified, without becoming controlled by the content of your own mind.

This is absolutely essential because if you cannot establish a degree of freedom in relationship to your intrusive thoughts then you will be a slave to those thoughts and they will not change, because your reactivity will have the effect of reinforcing those thoughts and the emotion behind the thoughts.

So, that’s the first step of mindfulness therapy, is learning to establish a balanced relationship with our intrusive thoughts. We do this by meditating on our intrusive thoughts, but consciously instead of in a blind unconscious manner.

And the second stage is one of working with those thoughts, and more importantly, working with the emotional energy underneath the thoughts that is making those thoughts intrusive thoughts, making them powerful, giving them the power to cause problems and cause you to be overcome by them.

Working with the underlying fear is an essential part of breaking free from OCD. So the underlying emotion is the fuel that feeds those intrusive thoughts and the intrusive thoughts and beliefs are what get converted into compulsive behaviors.

So really the root is to learn how to change our relationship to thoughts and then to resolve the underlying fear that fuels those thoughts. And this is what I will teach you during online OCD therapy.

So, if you would like to learn more, please go to my website. Please e-mail me with any questions you may have and let’s schedule a therapy session over Skype at a time that works for you. Thank you.


Online Therapist for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder – OCD Treatment Online via Skype

Online Mindfulness Therapist for OCD – Treatment of OCD without medication

Welcome! My name is Peter Strong. I’m a professional mindfulness-based therapist, based in Colorado, USA and I offer online therapy for anxiety disorders, depression, addictions, and particularly for the treatment of OCD.

I get a lot of requests for help with obsessive-compulsive disorder and particularly with intrusive thoughts. Many people suffer quite severely from intrusive repetitive thoughts that just basically obsess the mind and cause a lot of suffering and lead to a lot of unwanted behaviors to try and avoid and get away from these intrusive thoughts.

So if you’re looking for an online therapist for OCD and you would like help in working with intrusive thoughts then please go to my website and learn more about the online therapy service that I offer for treating OCD and anxiety disorders in general. And please send me an email if you have any questions.

Most people really enjoy the mindfulness approach because it’s very practical. It teaches you how to neutralize those intrusive obsessive thoughts.

Trying to approach the problem of obsessive and intrusive thoughts by some sort of rational thinking approach is just not going to work. In fact you already know that these intrusive thoughts are not rational and not likely to occur, but it doesn’t stop them.

This is because the intrusive thoughts have a very strong emotional charge and it’s that emotional charge that causes them to stay in the mind and to repeat over and over again. It is the emotional charge that we have to work with and that’s the primary focus in Mindfulness Therapy.

It doesn’t matter whether the thought is rational or irrational. That’s not the point. The point is that you have to neutralize that emotional charge to allow that thought to subside and heal.

If you really want to stop intrusive thoughts you must neutralize the emotional charge of those thoughts. So the way we do this in Mindfulness Therapy is by actually meditating on those intrusive thoughts.

We don’t try to run away from them, we don’t try to avoid them. We actually meditate on them, which means we hold them as a primary object in our meditation. We look at the thoughts and we start to change our relationship to them. That’s the first and most important thing.

So typically, what happens with a highly charged emotional intrusive thoughts is that when ever they arise in the mind we become completely consumed by them, we become overwhelmed by the thoughts, we become identified with them.

So the first step in mindfulness training is learning to literally sit with those thoughts without becoming reactive, without reacting with fear, which is the primary energy in intrusive thoughts, or aversion, some form of hatred or resistance. We have to learn to sit with it and not react.

That is the first training and the only way to do that is to consciously and actively focus on that thought; on training in that way, to sit with the thought. You can’t do it by some other indirect method. You must work directly with those intrusive thoughts.

The second part of our mindfulness work is becomes possible once you stop reacting or identifying with those obsessive thoughts. Then we work on neutralizing the emotional charge, and that really is mostly about working with the imagery of the thought, because emotions work through imagery and very highly emotional thoughts or images, for that matter, or memories or other intrusive type imagery.

The thing that makes it emotionally powerful is the properties of that imagery itself, how you see it and the mind is what creates the emotion itself. So we look at this imagery and then we start to change it, because when you have a non-reactive conscious, mindful relationship with the intrusive or obsessive thought, then you can begin to explore changing it, changing its properties. For example making it a lot smaller.

So an obsessive or compulsive thought, by its nature will be very large. The imagery is probably also going to be very close. And that is what creates the intense emotional charge of the thought: it’s position, its size, and color. All of these details of the imagery are what actually cause the emotion.

So if you’d like to learn practical ways of working with your OCD and intrusive thoughts, then please reach out to me and schedule a Skype Therapy session.
