The Goal is Emotional Freedom; The Path is Mindfulness Therapy
Treat the underlying cause of your anxiety and depression – Mindfulness Therapy gives you the tools to resolve emotional suffering much faster than “talk therapy” and without the side-effects of medications. Most people who work with me see significant improvements within 3-4 sessions.
During the Skype Therapy Sessions I will teach you practical mindfulness-based methods for working with your emotions to promote healing, transformation and emotional freedom. The methods are well-tested, effective and supported by research.
“When we learn how to embrace our emotions with awareness and love they change. Mindfulness heals, transforms and liberates the mind, allowing us to live fully with true happiness and wisdom.” – The Path of Mindfulness Meditation, by Peter Strong
Mindfulness Therapy cultivates the combination of full conscious awareness combined with genuine positive loving-kindness. When you bring this quality of consciousness to anxiety, depression and emotional suffering it greatly promotes healing and transformation in a very real and lasting way.
Here is a communication from one of my previous clients that describes the power of this combination of conscious awareness and compassion that is the essence of mindfulness:
“I just wanted to share with you something that happened this morning. I was lying in bed, full of sadness and anxiety and my body full of tiredness and pain and I was trying to gear myself up for another day wondering how I was going to do anything with this heaviness and tightness and I was thinking I am trying everything why do I still feel so suffocated?
And then I thought, what would happen if I just totally and fully had compassion and acceptance and love for this tightness and heaviness? Not the fake “ill be nice and pretend to like you so you go away” kindness that I had been using but really truly loved this pain and had compassion for this experience.
Well it was really hard at first but I sat there and started saying loving things to myself, like “I care about this pain and suffering” and “I wish you peace and love” and “you free to arise here, this is a safe place for any feelings and experiences and you have all the time and support and love you need to rest and stay and change” and I just sat with all that pain and anxiety and tension and just kept sending it compassion and space and it was like there was this very slow forming lightness, I didn’t really notice it at first, but almost like my body and soul were softening a little bit, and I started to feel more free and light.” – Eloise, Australia

About Mindfulness-based Online Therapy
I developed an approach called Mindfulness Therapy, which is one of the most effective evidence-based therapies available – especially for treating Anxiety Disorders, which is my specialty. During these Online Therapy Sessions, you will learn proven mindfulness-based methods to overcome anxiety, depression and emotional stress. This approach is REALLY EFFECTIVE – It has worked for so many people; it can also work for you.
Whatever the style of therapy that you are attracted to, you need to change the underlying structure of the anxiety itself. Standard Talk Therapy can be useful, but often it does not transform the underlying structure, the underlying process that creates your anxiety every day. The same can be said for medications as well – the medication may relieve symptoms for awhile, but medications is not going to change the underlying cause of anxiety or depression. So, it’s very important to seek what we might call a process-centered therapy to try and change the underlying process that creates the anxiety or depression. CBT, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, is an example of a process-oriented therapy. Mindfulness Therapy, which is a form of psychotherapy that I developed in the 1980’s incorporates CBT and cognitive therapy along with mindfulness, and this is another extremely popular process-oriented therapy.
So, what is the underlying structure of your anxiety? What keeps that anxiety alive? Well, there are two levels that we must address. The first is to do with what is called Automatic Reactive Thinking: the racing mind, intrusive thoughts, thoughts that occur over and over again, thoughts that catastrophize, the ‘what if?’ thoughts, that tend to feed the anxiety. So, that’s one very important part of anxiety therapy that we look at during the online sessions of Mindfulness Therapy. We learn how to change our relationship to these negative thoughts. It’s not the thoughts themselves that causes the problem, it’s our relationship to these compulsive thoughts. The way that we tend to identify with those thoughts and simply become lost in the thoughts – we actually lose conscious awareness, in effect, and become prisoners of these recurring negative thoughts. Mindfulness Therapy is one of the best methods available for learning how to change this habit, how to break free from that prison of reactive thinking that creates anxiety. That’s one level of Mindfulness Therapy – working with compulsive thinking.
The second part of Online Mindfulness Therapy is working with the core emotions underneath that fuel that habitual thinking. So, you can think of anxiety as having a core, rather like a volcano has a magma chamber, and that magma is always seeking an outlet to the surface, and so it is with core emotions – they are always seeking an outlet, seeking to take on form, in the form of thoughts.
During Skype therapy sessions we also work hard on developing a very positive and accepting relationship with the core emotions themselves. We create the ideal internal conditions that allow that core reservoir of anxiety energy to change, to transform, to heal and to eventually go away. So, this is a very important part of Mindfulness Therapy – learning how to make friends with your emotions. Our habit, of course, is the opposite: it is to run away from our emotions, it is to avoid them, it is to resist them, it is to create negative aversion toward our emotions, but this only makes them stronger! Avoidance and aversion simply reinforces the core emotion and stops it from healing. So, during Mindfulness Therapy sessions we learn how to establish a very friendly, compassionate relationship with the core emotions because this is what will allow them to heal.
The other part of the healing process for our core emotions is to look into its structure. What is the structure of an emotion? This is interesting because the structure of emotion is not thought, it is imagery. Imagery is the natural language of emotion. This is why we might say, “I am feeling overwhelmed” or “I’m feeling in a very dark place right now” or “I’m feeling trapped.” These are all visual terms. This points to how we see the emotion internally in the mind, and it is this emotional imagery that creates an emotion and keeps it in place. So, behind every emotion there is imagery – how we see the emotion in the mind. During Mindfulness Therapy we investigate this imagery, we look at it in great detail and we look to see the primary characteristics of that imagery that keeps the emotion alive.
For example, if the imagery is too close and too big, that is a primary component that creates the anxiety, or the panic. So, a simple step that you can try yourself is to simply take the emotion and to move it further away. Often, a simple method like that can produce immense differences in the intensity of the emotion that you experience, simply learning to move it further away.
Other things to investigate are things like the color of the emotion that you see internally. Often, intense emotions have intense colors. So, when we deliberately change the color to black and white or to a muted color, that can directly affect the strength of the emotion.
So, it’s by looking closely at the structure of an emotion that you can find out how it works and with this information you can make important changes to the structure of the emotion. When you change the imagery you change the emotion. The more you change the imagery, the more the emotion changes. We use mindfulness to investigate what changes bring about the resolution of the emotion. We practice, refine and reinforce these changes until they become completely second nature. When we have done this thoroughly, we will notice a major shift internally, a felt-shift occurs as the emotion, the anxiety, resolves itself. Eventually the anxiety no longer arises.
So, this is a short introduction to the Mindfulness Therapy that I provide via Skype, and if you would like to learn more about online psychotherapy for anxiety through Mindfulness Therapy, then please email me so that we can book an online therapy session over Skype to help you resolve your anxiety.
Why choose Online Mindfulness Therapy?
Because this approach focuses on transforming the underlying cause of anxiety and depression rather than just treating the symptoms. Please contact me now and let’s explore how Mindfulness Therapy can help you.
“Mindfulness Therapy is as good as antidepressant drugs.” Read this CNN Health article by Elizabeth Landau.

Besides seeing clients in-person, I also provide online counseling through Skype. Skype Therapy, as it is commonly called, is becoming very popular. It is so much more convenient for clients. It means that you’re able to schedule your sessions during your work day without having to leave your home or leave the office. Skype Therapy is certainly very much more convenient. With Skype, you are able to see the other person as well as talk to
them. It’s really no different than being in an office with the therapist, or seeing the therapist in person. It is the same quality of the one-on-one psychotherapy that you could receive in an office, but with the added convenience, as I say.
People also like online therapy because it allows you to find the right kind of therapist to work with, someone that you feel comfortable with. This is extremely important. Good psychotherapy depends on having the right kind of relationship with your therapist. It has to feel right for you as the client. Also, I find that the online format of Skype Therapy works extremely well with the form of therapy that I teach, which is called Mindfulness Therapy; and which I talk about in my book, ‘The Path of Mindfulness Meditation’.
Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy has grown tremendously in popularity in the last 5 to 10 years now. Our understanding of what mindfulness is and how to use it to work effectively with emotions like anxiety, panic attacks, depression, PTSD and stress has grown tremendously.
It is really very, very well worth while exploring mindfulness therapy in detail. What is mindfulness? Basically, mindfulness is a form of awareness that we can define as non-reactive in nature. That means that you’re able to literally sit with your emotions. but without becoming overwhelmed by them, without becoming reactive. This is absolutely essential for healing to occur. The only way that your anxiety or panic attacks or depression will eventually subside is if you can sit with those emotions without feeding them with your reactivity, particularly of course, reactive thinking, avoidance behaviors, or any of these other forms of reactivity that tend to become habits. Mindfulness Therapy is an excellent choice for doing just this.
Peter Strong, PhD is a scientist, author of ‘The Path of Mindfulness Meditation’, meditation teacher and Buddhist Psychotherapist, living in Boulder, Colorado, USA. He specializes in the study of mindfulness and its application in Mindfulness Psychotherapy for healing the underlying causes of anxiety, depression and traumatic stress as well as for the effective treatment for addictions and OCD.
Besides face-to-face counseling sessions, Dr. Strong also provides Online Mindfulness Meditation Therapy through Skype for people who prefer the convenience of online psychotherapy.
Is Online Therapy effective?
There are many studies showing that Online Therapy via the Internet is as good as and sometimes better than conventional office-based psychotherapy sessions.Talking to an online therapist is usually much more comfortable for you. To learn more about the effectiveness of online therapy and online counseling see http://psychology.about.com/od/psychotherapy/a/onlinepsych.htm and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Online_counseling.
“These Skype sessions have really helped me feel so much better. I used to be very reactive, but now I don’t get so easily upset. Mindfulness Therapy has made all the difference. It’s quite remarkable how effective it is.”
I specialize in Mindfulness Therapy, which I offer online over Skype. This approach is extremely effective for managing anxiety disorders and for the resolution of non-clinical depression and also provides an good alternative for addiction counseling.
During these online therapy sessions, I will work with you as an online therapist, teaching you better strategies for healing emotional suffering.
The main cause of emotional suffering involves conditioned thinking, patterns of habitual reactive thinking that get activated either through inner thoughts or through external stimuli and these reactive patterns of thinking tend to proliferate and reinforce the underlying emotion. This is what we work on changing during therapy sessions using the principles of Mindfulness Therapy as our primary method. You will learn very quickly how to better manage your habitual thinking and how to stop the habitual process that fuels those underlying painful emotions.
Most on my clients see quite substantial changes after 3 to 6 therapy sessions. Each session is usually 60-90 minutes long, and we can find a time that fits your schedule, if I have spaces available. All you need is a quiet place for your therapy sessions, Skype, and PayPal to make online payments after each session.
So, if you want to learn more about the advantages of online therapy, please email me. Email me to learn more about this online counseling therapy service and find out more about how it can help you better manage your difficult emotions.

“After 8 years, two therapists, many self-help books…..my hypochondria and OCD was worse than ever. I figured I would just have to live like this and deal with it. I put on a good show in front of people and cried alone. Then, I stumbled upon Peter’s website. I figured this was my last attempt. Peter is kind, understanding, and patient. He helped guide me out of the dark and see the light. He is truly there to help. He never looks at his time during sessions. I would have to remind him that time is up. His rates are reasonable so everyone cam get proper therapy. He gave me practical tools to use to overcome my anxiety. He is always available via email for advice.

ONLINE THERAPY WITH AN ONLINE THERAPIST Welcome. My name is Peter Strong, and I am a professional registered psychotherapist. I offer online therapy, try to help people work with anxiety, depression, stress, and other difficult emotions. Online Therapy via Skype, allows you to have a one-on-one session with me, where we can talk and see each other at the same time. This is a very convenient way for people who can’t see a local therapist or who would prefer to see someone different than their local therapists. It’s also very convenient for people who are traveling or living abroad. In fact, many of my clients are expats living abroad. The online option is a great one to consider if it’s difficult for you to travel away from home to a therapist’s office, for example, if you are living abroad and can’t find a local therapist, or if you don’t like the local choices available in your area.
The style of therapy that I offer is called Mindfulness Therapy, which is a very exciting, very unique, alternative approach to the more traditional talk therapies that you’re probably familiar with. The whole focus of Mindfulness Therapy is to help you establish the right kind of relationship with your emotions so that you don’t become overwhelmed by them.
Once you establish a Mindfulness relationship with your emotions, then it’s possible to start to look at the structure of those emotions and find out how they work. This often involves imagery. For example, when a person feels overwhelmed by an emotion, right there, we have a clue in that language as to how they see that emotion internally. If they say, “I feel overwhelmed. It’s getting on top of me,” chances are they literally see that emotion inside as being above them, at a higher position to them. They see themselves as a small person with this looming emotion above them.
Seeing this kind of structure really is very, very helpful because when you see it, then you can begin to change it. Once you change the structure of the emotion, the emotion itself changes.
This is one of the many of the unique principles behind Mindfulness Therapy. If you’re interested in exploring this further, please send me an email. Visit my website and send me your questions and describe the issues that you are working with, and we can begin an email correspondence to see if this is right for you, then go ahead and schedule a Skype session. Remember, my policy is that if you schedule a Skype session and you find, “No, this isn’t right for me,” there’s no charge. You only pay after a session and if you want to continue with online therapy with me. There’s nothing to lose for you. Please, send me that email, and let’s discuss if online therapy is right for you. Thank you.

Online therapy which is also known as internet therapy, long-distance therapy, web-based therapy or e-therapy is becoming more widely accepted for providing treatment for anxiety, depression and other non-clinical emotional problems. An online psychotherapist or online therapist may easily communicate with you via the internet, usually via Skype. Online therapy may provide psychological support, mental and emotional well-being instructions or even the same kind of professional services received by clients in traditional face-to-face therapy.
Therapy online can take many forms, ranging from short consultations to answer a psychological question, or a continuous and long conversation aimed at helping you resolve an emotional issue like anxiety, depression or an addiction. It may also take the form of electronic mail (otherwise known as e-mail therapy), chat, video or even cyberspace phone call (known as voice-over-IP counseling).
There are now many clinical research studies showing that online therapy and particularly CBT-based online psychotherapy is very effective and equally effective to conventional in-person therapy. Therapy online is now becoming well established as an alternative to the older styles of psychotherapy.
Having therapy online, or psychotherapy online is undoubtedly more convenient and also offers greater privacy for the client, who may not want to be seen attending a therapist’s office. Online therapy offers new opportunities even though there have been arguments made about ethical issues such as general performance of therapy across the nation, how to handle cases of urgent attention, and ways to keep and protect the client’s medical records. Clearly, there are many online therapists and online psychotherapists who are well trained and well experienced in providing quality care. Online therapy may not be appropriate for medical conditions requiring medical treatment and medications, but it is certainly beneficial for the more typical client who is simply seeking help in managing difficult emotions, relationship problems and for treating non-clinical and non-psychotic forms of anxiety and depression.
Benefits of having online therapy and online psychotherapy
- Having therapy online, or psychotherapy online is relatively affordable and often significantly less expensive than in-office visits, where there are often high overheads and high rent for the clinician’s office. But therapy online is much more affordable because you are not paying expensive rent for an office block, secretary and so on.
- Online psychotherapy with the best online therapist will focus on helping you deal with any emotional issues you are having difficulty with. Typically, the online therapy format is very much more focused than the older style “talk therapies” and often much more creative in nature using more holistic approaches, such as the Mindfulness Therapy that I offer online.
- Your therapist would work with you to find the cause of emotional and psychological imbalances. Once we have identified the underlying patterns of emotional reactivity then we can begin to change these in a very focused way using mindfulness-based techniques.
- Comfort is also another benefit of having therapy and psychotherapy online. When you want to have therapy sessions, you don’t need to go anywhere except to your PC, or laptop – you can have therapy sessions in the comfort of your home. You have more freedom to express yourself during online sessions because it is definitely much less intimidating for most people.
- Convenience, and time management are what you will enjoy from online therapy and online psychotherapy.
- Quality of Service is another major benefit of having online sessions with a online therapist because you are able to pick and choose which therapist is best suited for your needs. It is much easier to determine this if the therapist has a website and an online presence that you can research before contacting him.
When might online therapy be a good choice for you
- You live in an isolated community or rural area.
- You are very busy; out of town because of work, or have a tight schedule.
- If you have physical disability or mobility difficulties, such as fear of driving
- If you prefer the greater privacy afforded by online therapy via Skype.
- If you struggle with Social Anxiety Disorder or agoraphobia and find it difficult to talk to a therapist in-person.
When might online therapy NOT be a good choice for you
- If you are suffering from a medical condition that is causing your anxiety or depression. For this you should always seek help from a medical doctor.
- You are at risk of self-harm or of possibly causing harm to a partner or child
