ONLINE THERAPY SESSIONS FOR ANXIETY & DEPRESSION
Welcome! My name is Peter Strong, and I am a professional registered psychotherapist. I offer online therapy and I 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. There are a growing number of online therapy sites available today and many people are turning to internet therapy over conventional in-person psychotherapy because they prefer the greater anonymity and privacy offered by online counseling.
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 therapy 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 Mindfulness Therapy via Skype
With the rise of the internet, more and more people are seeking help for their emotional problems through online therapy sessions via Skype.
I have developed a system called Mindfulness Therapy, a system that I devised in the 1980s that is really effective for anxiety and other forms of emotional stress. This system of therapy is designed to teach you how to change the underlying emotions that create stress, anxiety and depression. Skype Therapy sessions are a combination of teaching and practical work – all designed to give you the skills you need to change your habitual patterns of emotional reactivity – all designed to stop you from being a victim of your painful emotions, so that you can heal and move on.
Welcome. My name is Peter Strong and I am a professional online therapist. I offer therapy over Skype for working with difficult emotions, whether that be anxiety, depression, addictions, or traumatic memories. I often work with people suffering from PTSD,
I use this technique called Mindfulness Therapy, which is a very good way of working with difficult emotions. It is really quite different than conventional talk therapy because it helps you change the underlying structure of the process itself that creates your emotional suffering, whether that is anxiety or depression or fear or compulsion.
All emotions have an underlying structure and during our online therapy sessions we will begin to investigate that structure using mindfulness.
Mindfulness is simply a very powerful form of consciousness, conscious awareness, that you apply to your emotions. We essentially learn how to meditate on our emotions.
Most people have never thought to do this, they spend all their time trying to avoid their emotions or to get away from them in some way, to suppress them or try and put them out of the mind and replace them with some positive thoughts, for example. But any form of avoidance or suppression will simply make the problem worse.
Those traumatic emotions or painful emotions are in a state of change. They are trying to heal themselves, but in order to heal they must have your conscious awareness. That is the medium through which they can heal themselves.
So, rather than running away from our difficult emotions, in Mindfulness Therapy we turn towards them and we embrace them, not only with conscious awareness, but with that second important factor of mindfulness which is called friendliness or self-compassion or loving-kindness. This is what makes mindfulness quite distinct from basic awareness. It is the combination of this friendly quality with awareness, and when we apply that to our emotional suffering, then the emotional suffering will begin to change itself. It will heal, it will continue it’s process of healing.
Without consciousness it cannot heal; with conscious it will heal.
Now, how do emotions heal? Well, they do this by changing the imagery that is basically the core structure of the emotion. All emotions have imagery associated with them. That imagery holds that emotional energy in place to create the fear or the anxiety, or the trauma if it’s a traumatic memory, for example, or depression. They all have imagery associated with them.
This imagery is mostly unconscious; we don’t know about it because we never look at it. But, during Mindfulness Therapy, during the online sessions I will teach you how to sit with your emotions and investigate the imagery of the emotions through mindfulness, through mindful awareness.
When you uncover the image structure of the emotions then you begin to explore how to change that imagery in a way that allows the emotion to continue it’s process of healing.
It may be as simple as moving the emotional imagery. Habit will probably cause that emotional imagery to appear very close to you. So, it’s very close, being very close it’s likely to be very large. It’s also likely to be in a higher position than you. That’s why we say things like, “I feel overwhelmed,” or “It’s getting on top of me,” or “I feel this weight on my shoulders,” or whatever it might be. That language is simply reflecting this internal imagery.
So, seeing the imagery is a very important part of the healing process. Basically, the more you uncover that imagery, the more it continues to change itself. The imagery will adapt and become malleable and will start to change in that light of consciousness that you provide.
So, working with imagery is a very important part of the Mindfulness Therapy that I teach online, and during the online Mindfulness Therapy sessions I will teach you in great detail how to meditate on your emotions to produce healing.
Because it is such a direct approach, unlike talk therapy or counseling, you can expect to see quite significant changes in your emotions after, usually, 3 or 4 sessions of Mindfulness Therapy. We are working on the actual mechanism that creates that anxiety or depression or trauma, and that’s why Mindfulness Therapy is so successful.
Talking about emotions is not the same thing as being conscious of the emotions. Consciousness is essentially looking directly at the emotion as it is, looking at it’s structure, uncovering that imagery, and it’s that process that allows it to change. Quite different than talk therapy.
Also, in this process you start to develop a very different sense of your Self, of what we call your true identity, your True Self. You begin to see that you are not your anxiety, you are not your depression, you are not your traumatic memories. What “You” are in essence is that consciousness itself.
Consciousness is like a space, like the sky, that contains those objects, the emotions, the thoughts, the memories. But You are not those thoughts or memories. So, you begin to sense this different and much more spacious sense of your own True Self that is NOT the contents of mind. This we call your True Self, and it’s interesting because it has no structure, it is not thought. It is like the sky. It is formless in nature but yet able to contain any object whatsoever, and your True Self is like that. It has tremendous resilience, compassion, love, creativity. All of these good factors that you, like everyone else, are trying to develop in yourself, they are already embedded in the structure of your True Self. That’s it’s nature.
So, through meditating on our emotions, on our emotional suffering particularly, you achieve two things. The first is that you facilitate the healing of those emotions, but the second is that you develop this sense of your True Self, the one that is the Observer of those emotions. So that becomes a very interesting part of Mindfulness Therapy.
It’s not just about trying to fix things, it’s about actually growing and developing your full capacity. So, that’s another extremely important part of online Mindfulness Therapy.

And, as I say, this is very different than conventional counseling; it;s very much faster’ its very much more empowering, and I really do expect my clients to see significant improvements after the first 2 or 3 sessions. Even the first session will produce some significant changes for you. So please go to my website and email me and let’s schedule an online therapy session.

Then you would pay for that trial session.
So, if this interests you, please contact me. Thank you.
How Does Online Therapy Work?
When you schedule an online therapy session you will be able to talk to a therapist via Skype and have a face-to-face online session just as if you were in the therapist’s office, but with the great advantage that you never have to leave home.
The online sessions that I offer are a combination of teaching and practical experiential exercises designed to help you work in a more positive way with your emotions. Sessions are typically 90min in length, which is much longer than traditional talking therapy sessions, and this allows us sufficient time for both teaching and practical work. Typically, you will want to schedule one session per week, which will give you enough time to practice what you learn in each session before the following session. In this way, each online session builds on the previous session and after 4-6 sessions you will have developed very effective skills for healing your anxiety or managing your stress.
Is Seeing a Therapist for Online Therapy Sessions as Effective as Office Sessions?
Although Online Therapy is relatively new, there is a growing number of research studies demonstrating the effectiveness of online therapy sessions as compared to traditional in-person therapy sessions. In fact, the results are so promising that many Mental Health Authorities are now recommending online therapy as an added resource for people seeking help for emotional problems. Online Therapy is likely to become the first choice for many people in the future.
In one much cited study published in the Lancet, a British medical journal, research psychologists found that online psychotherapy “more than doubled the chance of recovery.”
The researchers noted that “Clients feel less intimidated, less embarrassed and uninhibited while taking online therapy.”
The author concluded, ” the NHS, the UK’s publicly funded health service, should endorse an online approach to therapy as an extremely beneficial alternative for the treatment of depression.” Providing access to Online Therapists is also being developed in Australia and other countries with a large rural population who do not have easy access to local therapists.
CNN ran an article on Online Therapy in 2009 that you might enjoy reading:
If you simply Google search for ‘The Effectiveness of Online Therapy’ you will see for yourself just how effective and popular this new development in psychotherapy is becoming and why so many people are choosing Online Therapy as their first choice.
Online Therapy Sessions for Anxiety and Depression
Welcome! My name is Peter Strong and I am a professional mindfulness-based psychotherapist. I offer Online Therapy Sessions over Skype.
These online therapy sessions that I offer are particularly suitable for working with anxiety or depression. The mindfulness therapy approach is extremely effective for anxiety and for working with depression as well.
During the online therapy sessions we will focus on helping you learn more effective ways of consciously relating to your emotion without becoming overwhelmed by them. You need to establish a conscious relationship with your emotions and break that habit of becoming identified with your emotions. We need to learn how to sit with our emotions, essentially.
This is extremely important and the more you do this, the more you are able to sit with your emotions without becoming reactive, without becoming consumed by the emotion, the more that emotion will change. It will change by itself if you maintain consciousness with it. This is what I will teach you during our online therapy sessions together.
I will teach you how to sit with your emotions, remaining conscious, breaking the habit of reactivity, and then facilitating the healing, the natural healing, the natural transformation of those emotions.
From my experience with working with many hundreds of clients now, over the years, this simple process of learning to sit with your emotions consciously is the most important thing you can do.
The emotion will change itself, like I say, and you will also discover ways of helping that emotion change itself. Sometimes our emotions are really in a state of fear themselves. They are isolated, they are abandoned, they are rejected, we don’t like them, we resist them, we avoid them at all costs, and this leads to what is called EMOTIONAL DISSOCIATION. The emotion is essentially dissociated from the Psyche itself. It becomes suppressed and isolated and in that state it does not have the consciousness that is needed for it to change itself. It cannot heal under those conditions of reactive aversion, which is what we call it.
It’s actually only when you bring consciousness and even a quality of friendship to that emotion that the emotion will begin to change itself. It thrives on our reconnecting with it, essentially, bringing it in from the cold. This is essentially what we are doing; bringing it into consciousness. When you do that you are re-connecting in a way that is healthy instead of re-connecting in a way that is unhealthy. Unhealthy means that we become lost in the already established patterns of conditioned reactivity such as worrying, rumination and imaginary thinking.
What we are doing in Mindfulness Therapy is actually sitting with the emotion directly, experiencing it exactly as it is and this is what allows it to change and heal.
It’s a very direct and very focused strategy, and during the online therapy sessions I will teach you how to do this very effectively and then you will be able to practice this between sessions at home as well. When emotions arise you will know how to sit with them, how to essentially meditate on your emotions. Because that’s what we are teaching you; we are teaching you how to meditate on your emotions instead of just becoming overwhelmed by them.
So, if you are interested in an online therapy session with me, please go to my website, learn more about online therapy, and then when you feel ready to schedule a Skype therapy session, simply email me and we can find a time that works for you.

The Advantages of Online Therapy Sessions
There are many advantages to online therapy and working with a therapist online via Skype. Please contact me if you would like to schedule an online therapy session.
Welcome. My name is Peter Strong, and I am a professional online therapist offering online therapy via Skype for the treatment of anxiety, for depression, for working with obsession and compulsion and for also working with addictions.
There are many advantages to online therapy. The first, of course, is convenience. It’s just so much more convenient being able to have your therapy session from the comfort of your own home or office. So, convenience is important, because the more comfortable you feel, the better outcomes you will have from your therapy sessions. Another advantage of online therapy is that you can access a therapist when living abroad or if living in a rural area or other place where it’s difficult to find a local therapist to work with.
And yet a third advantage of online therapy is that it gives you access to different kinds of therapy. Some people have tried talk therapy, and are really looking for something that’s perhaps more focused on changing the underlying cause of their anxiety, depression or addiction, rather than just talking about it. Talking, of course, is important; it’s a way of discovering and uncovering hidden emotions, and as always, the more that you bring these emotions into awareness, the more that they are likely to change. But, never the less, talking about an emotion does not necessarily change the underlying habitual process that creates that emotion.
So, many people are looking for alternatives to conventional talk therapy. Some of the best alternatives now are things like Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, or CBT, or Mindfulness Therapy. I specialize in Mindfulness Therapy. I like this approach and my clients see very good results with Mindfulness Therapy online.
The focus is on changing the underlying cause of you emotional problems, and this mostly is around breaking free from those habits of reactive thinking that feed the anxiety or depression or other emotion. So, that’s certainly a very big part of Mindfulness Therapy, developing more awareness, conscious awareness of these patterns of reactive thinking. And, the more aware you become of them the easier it is to change them.
But Mindfulness Therapy does much more than that, it actually looks at the underlying structure of the emotion itself. This very often involves looking at the underlying imagery of the emotion. Imagery is the natural language of emotion, that’s why we dream in images, not words or thoughts, so much. When we see how the imagery takes shape in the mind, we can then begin to make changes in that imagery, and as you change the imagery, you will change the emotion.
So, a large part of Mindfulness Therapy involves this investigation into the structure of the emotion itself, into looking at that imagery and then exploring changes in that imagery that resolve that emotion and that help you change the emotion itself.
So, any case, if you would like to learn more about Mindfulness Therapy and the advantages of online therapy in general, please do visit my website, CounselingTherapyOnline.com, and send me an email and then we can schedule an online therapy session for you. So, please visit my website and email me. Thank you!

Online Therapy over Skype
Welcome! My name is Peter Strong, and I am a professional online therapist. I specialize in Distance Therapy via Skype. Distance Therapy, also known as Internet Therapy, e-therapy, or simply Online Therapy is a very good choice if you are living abroad or if you are in a rural area.
In fact, many of my clients live in rural American States where it’s difficult to find a local therapist to work with, or where they prefer something more private, to maintain anonymity, and so an online therapist is a good choice for getting the kind of help that you would like to manage your emotional problems, whatever they may be, but from the privacy of your own home.
There are lots of other advantages to Distance Therapy or Distance Counseling. Of course, it doesn’t involve ant commuting so it’s much easier to fit into a busy work schedule. Or if you are a stay-at-home mum, or if you have difficulty leaving your home, for whatever reason, then online therapy is certainly a very good option to consider.
So, online therapy, or Distance Therapy is a very good way of working with, what we might call, non-clinical anxiety and non-clinical depression. If you have serious problems then, of course, you must consult your doctor, but for most people, what we are really looking for, is practical solutions, ways of managing your anxiety or depression or addiction yourself.
There are definitely very good strategies that you can learn during these online therapy sessions that I offer. I specialize in Mindfulness Therapy, which is a particularly effective form of Cognitive Therapy, or CBT, that works extremely well for anxiety and depression, particularly. This style of therapy is something that I developed back in the 1980’s as a way of working with anxiety in a very direct way – working on changing the underlying process of reactive thinking that creates our anxiety and depression.
So, if you would like to learn more about Distance Therapy, or Online Therapy in general, please visit my website, CounselingTherapyOnline.com, and email me, and then we can talk further and schedule a therapy session via Skype. So, please go to my website and contact me. Thank you!
Contact me if you would like to learn more about anxiety counseling online or online therapy for depression. With the use of Skype, Distance Therapy is just as effective as in-person therapy as well as being a lot more convenient for you.

You should expect to see results within 3 to 6 sessions of the style of therapy that I offer, which is called Online Mindfulness Therapy. It’s quite a different approach than traditional talk therapy – not so much talking about your emotions but rather changing the underlying cause of your anxiety or depression or addiction.
So, Mindfulness Therapy basically helps you break free from those patterns of reactive thinking that keep you trapped, that keep you recreating anxiety, depression or a compulsion. Because it works on changing the underlying cause, Mindfulness Therapy is much more effective than general online counseling or talk therapy. And, it’s also a very good alternative to medications. Medications, of course, treat the symptoms but not the underlying cause.
