Let an Online Skype Therapist Help You Resolve difficult Emotions
Working with a therapist via Skype provides a very convenient option for many people these days. Most people who seek help do not suffer from a mental health problem, they are not ill, but simply looking for practical help for managing difficult emotions. Life is extremely challenging for all of us, and we get little education on how to manage stress, anxiety, depression or anger. It is perfectly sensible and reasonable to seek help from a professional – but you do not need to consider yourself “ill” to seek help. There are, of course levels of mental illness where you should seek medical treatment from a local doctor or professional, but for most of us, we simply want to learn better ways of working with unresolved painful emotions and patterns of emotional reactivity.
Skype Therapists for Anxiety and Depression
Welcome! My name is Peter Strong, and I am a professional registered Skype therapist from Boulder, Colorado. Besides meeting with clients in my office, I also offer online psychotherapy via Skype. Skype Therapy, as it is frequently called, is becoming increasingly popular. It is so much more convenient for people. It means that you’re able to schedule your sessions during your work day without having to leave your home or leave your office. Skype Therapy is certainly 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 counseling that you could receive in-person, but with the added convenience, as I say.
Many people like this format 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 quality 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 describe in my book, ‘The Path of Mindfulness Meditation’.
Mindfulness-based Therapy has grown tremendously in popularity in the last 5 to 10 years now. Our understanding of what mindfulness is and how to apply it to effectively work with emotions like anxiety, panic attacks, depression, PTSD and stress has grown tremendously.
It’s really very, very well worth while exploring mindfulness in detail. What is mindfulness? Basically, it is a form of awareness that we can define as non-reactive awareness. That means that you’re able to literally sit with your emotions. but without becoming overwhelmed by them, without becoming reactive. This is extremely important 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 further 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’, teacher of mindfulness meditation and Buddhist Psychotherapist, based in Boulder, Colorado, USA. He specializes in the study of mindfulness and its application in Mindfulness-based Psychotherapy for healing the underlying causes of anxiety, depression and traumatic stress as well as for the effective treatment for addictions and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Besides face-to-face counseling sessions, Dr. Strong also provides Online Mindfulness Meditation Therapy via Skype for people who prefer the convenience of online counseling.
Let a Skype Therapist help you overcome your Anxiety and Depression
The form of therapy that I offer is called Mindfulness Therapy, which is very effective for anxiety, panic attacks, depression and most common emotional problems. The focus of this approach is to help you identify and break free from patterns of habitual emotional reactivity using the powerful awareness tool of mindfulness.
This approach is quite different from the standard forms of “Talk Therapy” in that mindfulness allows you to see into the very processes that generate anxiety, depression, panic attacks or other emotional reactions. Talking about an emotion can be helpful, but change become much more effective when you actually stop talking about the emotion and look directly at the structure of the emotion itself. For, example if you look at an emotion like depression, you may notice that it has a physical location in your body (pit of stomach, etc) and it may have a specific color – black and orange are frequently associated with depression. The point is that the more you learn about the structure of your emotions the more you can change. Change this inner imagery and you can make an amazing change in the intensity of the emotion.
How Online Therapy will Help You Overcome Anxiety and Depression
See a Skype Therapist Today!
The whole point of this online counseling service is to help you better manage whatever emotional problems you may be experiencing using mindfulness-based methods and psychology, which in my opinion is vastly superior to traditional psychoanalysis or other analytic approaches. This approach is completely different to the usual style of talk therapy in that we really focus on transforming the core process that generates your anxiety or other emotional suffering. You may experience temporary relief through talk therapy, but unless you heal the underlying cause of your anxiety, depression or addiction you will be vulnerable to falling back into those old habits. During Mindfulness Therapy Skype sessions you will learn in great detail how to break free from those habitual patterns of emotional reactivity.
Welcome! My name is Peter Strong, and I am a professional online therapist, specializing in Mindfulness Therapy for the treatment of anxiety, also for the treatment of depression, and for addictions as well. So, if you’re looking for an online therapist to help you with emotional problems that you maybe experiencing, do please visit my website and email me. I will be happy to talk to you more about the benefits of online therapy, about the process, and about how Mindfulness Therapy can help you overcome your emotional problems.
Basically, these sessions are usually about 60-90 minutes, longer than is typical for a psychotherapy session, and in these sessions we focus on looking at the process itself that creates your anxiety, depression or compulsion. We look at the internal thinking, the automatic patterns of reactive thinking that generates your emotions, and this is really very essential for changing any kind of emotional pattern. Most of it is created through automatic thinking, so a big part of Mindfulness Therapy is getting to see this automatic thinking and then beginning to change it through the process of awareness itself.
You don’t argue with the automatic thinking, you don’t try to get rid of it, you simply become aware of it. The more aware of it you become, the freer you become. In the same way that putting a car into neutral effectively stops that car from moving. It’s the same with reactive thoughts – when you become aware of them, then you put them in neutral and they are not able to create an emotional reaction or create suffering.
Then it becomes possible to learn new patterns of thinking that are more positive and that help create more helpful emotional responses in the situation.
So, Mindfulness Therapy is very focused on changing these patterns of reactive thinking, and it works extremely well. So, if you would like to learn more about Mindfulness Therapy for working with emotional problems, do please contact me through my website. Thank you!
Changing the Structure of Anxiety or Depression
Whatever the style of psychotherapy that you prefer, you need to change the underlying structure of the anxiety itself. Traditional Talk Therapy can be beneficial, but often it does not transform the underlying structure, the underlying process that creates your anxiety. The same can be said for medications as well – it may relieve symptoms for awhile, but medications will not change the underlying psychological process that causes the anxiety or depression. So, it’s very important to seek what we can call a process-centered therapy that focuses on changing 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 with the addition of mindfulness, and this is another very popular process-oriented therapy.
Use Mindfulness to Counteract Reactive Thinking
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 extremely important level of anxiety treatment that we look at during the online sessions of Mindfulness Therapy. We learn how to change our relationship to these intrusive thoughts. It’s not the thoughts themselves that causes the problem, it’s our relationship to those compulsive thoughts. The way that we tend to identify with those thoughts and simply become lost in those thoughts – we actually lose conscious awareness, in effect, and become prisoners of these recurring intrusive 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 causes anxiety. That’s one level of Mindfulness Therapy – working with negative thinking.
Use Mindfulness to Change Your Relationship to Your Emotions
The second level of Online Mindfulness Therapy is changing 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 looking for 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 work hard on developing a very positive and accepting relationship with these 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 resolve. 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 aversion toward our emotions, but this only makes them worse! Avoidance and aversion simply reinforces the core emotion and prevents it from healing. So, during Mindfulness Therapy we learn to form a very friendly, compassionate relationship with the core emotions because this is what will allow them to resolve.
Transform the Image Structure of Emotions
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 our emotions. This is why we might say, “I am feeling overwhelmed” or “I am in a very dark place right now” or “I am feeling trapped.” These are all visual terms. It’s actually how we see the emotion internally in the mind, and it is this emotional imagery that creates that emotion and keeps it in place. So, behind every emotion there is imagery – how we see the emotion inside. 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 by yourself is to simply take the emotion and to move it further away. Often, a simple method like that can produce immense changes in the intensity of the emotion that you experience, simply learning to move it further away.
Other things to investigate are the color of the emotion that you see internally. Often, intense emotions have intense colors. So, when we change the color to black and white or to a muted color, that can directly affect the intensity 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 profound changes imagery 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 natural. 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 brief introduction to the Mindfulness Therapy that I teach during online sessions, and if you would like to find out more about online treatment for anxiety using Mindfulness Therapy, then please CONTACT ME.

Welcome to my site, CounselingTherapyOnline.com. I am a professional psychotherapist, originally from the UK, now living in Boulder, Colorado, and I provide an online counseling service for people throughout America and abroad as well, where I offer mindfulness therapy. This is a particularly exciting form of modern cognitive therapy which is very suitable for treating anxiety, depression, and for help with stress management.
Now the online option, this is quite new, but now, with Skype we can have face-to-face sessions wherever you live, and it’s just as effective as seeing the therapist in person. In fact, there may be some indications that it’s even more effective than traditional talking therapies, mostly because you feel more comfortable, more at ease in your home or office or familiar place than you would in a therapist’s office. So that’s one advantage, but the other advantage is that often there are just not enough local therapists in your area who provide the kind of counseling that you are looking for. So the Internet gives us an opportunity to search outside of our local area to find, not only the right kind of therapy that we’re interested in, but also to find the right kind of therapist that we feel comfortable with, and who we’d like to work with.
The style of therapy that I teach is called mindfulness therapy. It’s based on some of the ancient teachings of the Buddha on mindfulness, but brought into a modern context. Basically, it’s a process of learning to work with your emotions directly and change the underlying process that keeps the anxiety or depression or stress repeating itself over and over again. The sessions are very friendly, informal. They’re a combination of teaching and lots and lots of practical work designed to give you the tools that you need to manage your emotions more effectively.
So, if this is of interest to you, please fill out the contact form or send me an email, and let’s start talking about online therapy for you. Thank you.

Mindfulness Psychotherapy for Overcoming Anxiety and Fear
Anxiety, fear and depression describe the condition in which emotional energy has become frozen in the mind. Mindfulness therapy provides an effective tool for releasing this trapped energy and restoring balance.
Anxiety and depression affect most of us at some time in our lives. For many, and estimates vary from 10-50%, these powerful emotions can take hold and reduce our happiness and vitality, leaving us feeling fatigued and fearful. We become the victims of these emotions.
All emotions are created around a complex network of negative beliefs and negative patterns of thinking that we acquire over the years that become the prison bars that keep us penned up and suffering. The first part of making a change for the better is learning to recognize these negative patterns of habitual reactivity. Most of the time we aren’t aware of these reactions when they arise – we just react out of habit. We tend to blindly accept the reactions as inevitable, the way things are. This provides our first challenge, right here. We have to break out of this delusion and understand that we are not the thoughts and emotions that arise in the mind; they are simply mind objects that arise due to conditions. Therefore, the first step in developing the art of recognizing our reactivity is to look at the reactions, emotions, worries and other negative thoughts as objects. We need to learn to look at these internal mental objects the same way that we might look at a table, a chair, a picture, or any other external object around us.
In fact, this is the first step in cultivating mindfulness meditation that we can practice right now. Settle into your chair, take a moment to relax your body and mind and start observing the objects around you. Pick an object and examine its details. Note how you can observe the object as it is: it exists in its space, and you exist as the observer, observing that object. You don’t have to react to the object, and the object has no power over you. In other words you have a very spacious and open relationship with the object, without any overlay of reactivity. This is the nature of mindfulness and with careful practice you can develop this same kind of mindful relationship with your thoughts and emotions.
This is where mindfulness becomes an invaluable tool for both the client and the therapist. Mindfulness is defined as the non-reactive present-centered awareness of an experience. It is the art of sensitive listening, being fully present and receptive to whatever is being experienced. In Mindfulness Meditation Therapy, mindfulness is applied directly to the felt-sense of the emotion to cultivate this quality of presence. We choose to make the emotion the primary object of our meditation and our task is to develop a relationship with the emotion, with the anger or fear in which we can observe the emotion and allow the emotion to unfold. The purpose of cultivating the mindfulness-based relationship is so that we can move from the superficial surface structure of the emotion to the deep internal structure and reveal the subtle internal structure.
As we all know, it is what we don’t see that has the greatest power over us, and this is exactly what happens with anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress. Through the mindfulness-based relationship that we cultivate with our inner emotional pain, we effectively allow it to change and witnessing this change is the essential part of the transformation process.

Skype Therapist – A Better Option for You
Welcome. My name is Peter Strong and I am a professional Skype Therapist. I offer online therapy over Skype as an alternative way of helping you overcome anxiety, depression or addictions.
Online therapy for anxiety is particularly effective, especially using the Mindfulness Therapy methods that I teach online.
So, if you are interested in working with a Skype therapist do please contact me, read more of the articles and watch more of the videos about online mindfulness therapy and then contact me when you are ready and we can schedule a Skype therapy session. The first session is always a trial session, which means there is no payment due unless you are completely satisfied with the session and see the results that you are looking for.
Most of my clients do see incredible good results with Mindfulness Therapy and this is because Mindfulness Therapy works by helping you change the underlying process that causes your anxiety or depression. It basically helps you break free from those long-established emotional habits.
And that’s what anxiety and depression is, primarily, emotional habits. These emotional habits get established quite early on in childhood and they tend to operate outside of our conscious awareness, so they gather momentum over the years and become more and more entrenched.
But, the important thing to understand with any kind of habits, including emotional habits is that they thrive on the absence of conscious awareness. The moment you bring conscious awareness to a habit then you take away the power of that habit and it will begin to change very quickly.
In Mindfulness Therapy we do just that, we focus a tremendous amount of conscious awareness directly on the emotional habits, and in this process you begin to reduce the intensity of the anxiety or depression and we begin to essentially break down its structure so that it ceases to have such power over you.
The power of mindful consciousness is quite remarkable and it’s quite different than the usual level of awareness that we are familiar with. Mindfulness-consciousness is really a form of being present with your experience without any form of reactivity, without identifying with your emotions, without becoming lost in your thoughts, without becoming a slave to the contents of your mind.
Through mindful-consciousness we are able to regain control of our minds, in effect.
Most people see tremendous improvements after as few as 2-3 sessions of Mindfulness Therapy. Even after the first trial session you are likely to experience quite significant improvements.
So, if you are interested in talking with me further about this, do please go to my website and contact me directly via email and then we can schedule a trial Skype therapy session to help you. So, I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you!
Skype Therapist offering Mindfulness Therapy Over Skype
Let a Skype therapist help you better manage any anxiety or depression or other emotional issues that may be troubling you.
Welcome. My name is Peter Strong and I am a professional online therapist. I offer Skype Therapy for the treatment of anxiety, for help with overcoming depression, and for recovery from addictions.
As a Skype therapist, I can work with you on a one-to-one basis at a time that’s convenient for you and also without you having to leave home. This is one of the great advantages of Skype therapy. It means that you can get the help you need without having to leave home.
If you would like to talk to a Skype therapist and learn more about this approach do please visit my website and contact me and ask any questions you may have about Skype therapy and how to start working with a Skype therapist and how this system can help you specifically.
Most of my clients are struggling with anxiety or depression; some are struggling with addiction too. Perhaps most of the individuals who choose online therapy are struggling with anxiety.
The system of psychotherapy that I offer online, which is called Mindfulness Therapy, is particularly good for helping you overcome anxiety.
Mindfulness Therapy is a way of really breaking those habitual patterns of emotional reactivity that lie at the core of our anxiety or depression. These underlying core emotions fuel our reactive thinking process and our behavioral reactivity, including addiction, and in general create tremendous problems in the quality of our life.
If you want to effectively break free from anxiety you have to learn how to change these underlying emotional habits. The emotional habits come first, not thoughts. Thoughts are the product of the emotion, just as the addictive behaviors are the product of an intense underlying emotion. The secret is to change that emotion. If you take the fuel away from the reactive thinking and reactive behaviors, then those behaviors and negative thought processes will themselves change and diminish and eventually be replaced by more positive thought and behavioral habits.
It all depends on changing the underlying emotion, and that’s where Mindfulness Therapy comes in. So, rather than trying to convince you that you no reason to be anxious as may be taught in some forms of CBT, we recognize that you have these beliefs because of the underlying emotion that gives those beliefs such power.
The only effective way to change those beliefs is to change that underlying emotion, and Mindfulness Therapy does this by recognizing that the primary structure of emotion is not thoughts, it’s not beliefs, it’s not behavior; it’s imagery. It’s how you see the emotion, the beliefs and thoughts in the mind. That imagery is what holds the emotional energy together and creates an emotional charge to the thought or or belief or behavior.
So, it’s imagery that really runs emotions. Discovering the structure of the imagery beneath your emotions is absolutely central, and that’s what we focus on when we apply mindfulness to our emotions. We look at the imagery underneath the emotion that creates that emotion. And, of course, the more you can uncover this imagery, the more that you can change the emotion.
It is very difficult to change an emotion directly because it has no particular form, it’s just an energy. But it is possible to change imagery because that does have form, it’s very concrete. And, remember, when you change the inner psychological imagery, you change the intensity of the emotion. Change that imagery enough and the anxiety or depression or addiction will go away.
So, that’s one part of Mindfulness Therapy. We call it Investigating the Image Structure of your Emotions.
