How to Stop Anxiety Attacks through Mindfulness Therapy
Hello there! My name is Peter Strong of the Boulder Center for Mindfulness Therapy. Now, many of the people who seek my assistance here either in the office or online through Skype sessions come to me suffering from panic attacks and panic anxiety. This is by far the most common form of emotional suffering that people encounter in their lives.
How to Overcome Panic Attacks and Anxiety
Panic attack anxiety is a very intense emotional reaction to certain perceived threats. many of these threats, or triggers, are not rational; but that’s not the point, because they are VERY real for the victim. Trying to convince someone that they should simply “get it together” and stop thinking negative thoughts is an ineffective approach, because for that person, those thoughts and beliefs ARE real. During Online Therapy for Panic Attacks sessions, we focus on changing the underlying emotions themselves through applied mindfulness.
During Mindfulness Therapy sessions, we take a totally different approach. The focus is on changing our relationship to the anxiety emotion. Instead of denying it or resisting it, we learn how to be present with the emotion, but WITHOUT becoming reactive. This is the first step to making real positive changes.
The second step of effective online therapy for panic attacks and anxiety is to look at the structure of the emotion to see how it works. You will find that what holds the emotion together is some form of inner imagery. If the emotion is intense, as with panic anxiety, then that corresponding imagery will also be intense.
The more we learn about this inner imagery, the more we have to work with, and the rule is: Change the imagery and you change the emotion.
Mindfulness Therapy is a highly effective form of psychotherapy that is gaining more and more popularity for treating Panic Anxiety, Panic Attacks, and Social Anxiety. Dr Strong, Founder of the Boulder Center for Mindfulness Therapy has written extensively on the subject and published the groundbreaking book, ‘The Path of Mindfulness Meditation’ available through Amazon.
Conventional counseling can be helpful, but often just talking about your feelings does not change the the underlying process that is the real cause of your depression or anxiety.
The same can be said for medications – the anti-anxiety medication may provide a temporary relief from symptoms for a while, but medications will not transform the underlying psychological process that generates the anxiety or depression.
The kind of psychotherapy that I provide is known as Mindfulness Therapy, which is very powerful for overcoming all forms of anxiety as well as for treating depression or other common psychological problems resulting from conditioned negative thinking. Most people see real and lasting changes after the first few sessions of Mindfulness Therapy.

Managing Anxiety & Depression through Mindfulness Therapy
It is extremely important that you just learn how to, basically, meditate on your anxiety and depression. You have to from a friendly relationship with your emotions. Most of us, needless to say, react to our anxiety, depression or other disagreeable emotions with avoidance or some type of hatred to those disagreeable emotions. We do not want these unpleasant emotions and we try to eradicate them. This really is surprisingly the worst thing you could potentially do, because aversion and avoidance makes the anxiety or depression grow and become more powerful. Any kind of reactivity has the negative effect of reinforcing the anxiety or depression.
What I’ve found, and numerous others in the area of Mindfulness Therapy have discovered, is that what really creates emotional healing is when we can hold the emotion in our conscious awareness without responding with habitual reactivity to the emotions with avoidance and aversion. When you are doing that you’re learning how you can actually be with the emotion without becoming reactive and without becoming overwhelmed by it. This trains the mind an entirely different way of processing that emotion, and also this allows the emotion to change, to release the emotional energy frozen in the emotion and to transform itself.
