Mindfulness Therapy Over Skype
Online Mindfulness-based Psychotherapy via Skype
Contact me if you would like to arrange for online mindfulness therapy over Skype - This is a really good choice for working with anxiety or depression. Most of my clients much prefer online therapy because it is more private than conventional in-person psychotherapy. The Mindfulness Therapy approach that I use is very effective and most of my clients typically see results after far fewer sessions than is usually needed for conventional symptom-based talk therapy or counseling. The focus is on transforming and healing the underlying cause rather than just treating symptoms.
Welcome!. My name is Peter Strong and I am a professional mindfulness-based online therapist. I provide therapy through Skype for the treatment of anxiety, depression and for help with recovery from addictions, as well.
Therapy through Skype is particularly convenient, of course. It means you don't have to leave home and that is very important if you are suffering from anxiety or agoraphobia or if you have driving example, for example, then it is really difficult to leave home.
So, this therapy through Skype service that I offer is designed to help you get the help that you need from the comfort of your own home. It is also very effective if you are living abroad as well. Then you may prefer some form of therapy over Skype because the local choices are just not suitable. I do have many clients who I work with, living abroad as far away as Singapore, or the Philippines, many in Western Europe of course and in the UK.
People like the online therapy approach. It is just more empowering for you, it is about helping you learn very specific and practical methods to manage anxiety or depression or to recover from an addiction. This is what you really need, much more than just talking about your emotions or trying to mask the symptoms through medications.
The Mindfulness Therapy service that I provide over Skype is really designed to help you change the underlying process of reactive thinking that creates your anxiety or depression. Once you change that, then the symptoms of anxiety and depression diminish, including the physical symptoms in the body, as well.

Mindfulness Therapy over Skype for Anxiety & Depression
Welcome! My name is Peter Strong and I provide online mindfulness therapy over Skype.
Mindfulness Therapy is a very, very effective way of dealing with anxiety and also depression. The reason why it is so effective is because it is the most direct method there is for actually changing the pathways that create anxiety and depression in the mind.
The primary cause of anxiety and depression is habitual reactive pathways of avoidance and resistance to anxiety or depression or any other emotions, for that matter, that become chronic.
When we inadvertently establish these patterns of avoidance and aversion, it effectively prevents the anxiety or depression from healing. It simply feeds those emotional habits.
With Mindfulness Therapy, we start to actually bring the opposite of avoidance and the opposite of resistance to those emotions that need our help. We cultivate conscious awareness of our anxiety or depression and we also develop compassion and friendliness towards those emotions.
We start to see that those emotions are simply parts of our self that is in pain and that requires our compassion and our conscious awareness in order to heal themselves.
If we set up pathways of avoidance and resistance then we set up pathways that prevent those emotions from ever healing.
During Mindfulness Therapy sessions, we learn very practical and very direct methods for developing this extremely important relationship based on consciousness and friendliness, or compassion. This combination of consciousness and friendliness, or compassion, is the definition of mindfulness.
When you bring this quality of mind to emotional suffering, it heals. Then the emotions actually learn how to heal themselves through connection with this consciousness and friendliness that you establish. That is what they need to heal.
The best analogy here would be: think of a child. If a child is in pain, what doe it most need to heal that pain, that emotional suffering? The answer is that it most needs is connection with its parents, with its mother or father. That connection allows it to access the consciousness and compassion and friendliness of the parent, which allows that emotion to resolve itself within the child.
So, this quality of connection between your True Self, which is like the parent, and your emotional suffering, anxiety, depression, whatever it may be, which is like the child. This quality of connection is what really creates the proper psychological conditions that lead to healing, and this is what is required for anxiety and depression to resolve themselves. You are teaching the emotions how to resolve themselves through access to your True Self.
This is what I have found, over and over again, to be the most important thing there is that you can do.

The online therapy approach is both very effective as well as very convenient. Most of my clients live abroad or in areas of the US where the local options are limited for psychotherapy. Also, most of my clients have heard about mindfulness and mindfulness meditation and are particularly interested in this approach as an alternative to conventional Western-style talk therapy, with its emphasis on treatments and medications. Most people don't need treatments, they need to learn better skills for working with their mind, which is exactly what I focus on during online therapy.
Therapy over Skype is a very convenient way to get the help that you may be looking for, but I think it has a lot of other advantages too. First of all, if you are suffering from anxiety then it is very difficult and challenging to leave home and go and see a therapist. For people with anxiety, that is just too much for much of the time and they will not seek help because of that barrier. So Skype therapy has a much lower barrier for you the client. It is just a lot more relaxed and friendly and practically oriented. It is not clinical.
Skype therapy is a way of really learning very practical and well-tested mindfulness-based strategies for overcoming long-standing patterns of anxiety or chronic depression or even for recovery from addiction.
The Mindfulness Therapy approach is all about helping you look at the process itself that creates those emotional states; the internal imagery, for example, that is at the heart of all emotions.
We investigate the structure of your emotions, the structure of your emotional imagery using mindfulness.
The more conscious you become, the more that you see the structure of how you actually create that anxiety or depression in the mind the more you can change those habitual processes.
Anxiety and depression are habits; they are simply learned habits, and like any habit, it thrives on unawareness, not being seen. But once you start to investigate that habit and shine conscious awareness on it, or mindfulness, then the habit begins to change itself. You can help it change its structure and break free from those patterns of emotional reactivity.
It is actually much easier than you might think. The defining factor is really looking at your emotions and seeing how they work. This is quite different than talk therapy or standard counseling. We are not here to talk about our emotions so much as we want to change the process that creates the emotions.
Talk therapy has its place, but it only really provides a temporary relief from the symptoms of anxiety or depression; it doesn't really change that underlying process that creates the anxiety.
So, that is what we do during the mindfulness therapy sessions that I offer online through Skype. So, if you are interested in therapy over Skype with me, please go to my website and simply email me. Ask any questions you have and then we can schedule a Skype therapy session at your convenience to help you break free from patterns of emotional suffering. Thank you!
