Here is a recent testimonial ( Nov 2015) from a lady from California:

"I had been stuck in another bout of intense generalized anxiety for several months when I found Peter. His website states that people experience significant results after 3-4 sessions. Well, after just 2 sessions I was 80% back to normal. I realize now that so much of my anxiety has been contraction against thoughts, feelings and sensations. So Peter's teaching me to welcome them and create a relationship with them was exactly the right "medicine" to bring me out of that contraction and back into the flow of my life. And a really wonderful thing is that I'm not afraid of the anxiety returning any more because now I know how to work with it.  Beyond healing the anxiety, my whole inner landscape is changing. I'm learning that the self-criticism, shame and doubt I have been stuck in for so long can all be met with compassionate awareness and brought to resolution. I'm starting to feel the joy Peter talks about and a real tenderness toward myself and others."

Online Therapy - Helping You Overcome Anxiety and Depression the right way

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 Skype Counseling 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 and informal and not clinical. 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.

“Online Therapy using Skype is so convenient and these sessions have really helped me feel so much better.”

  1. Excellent post. I was checking constantly this blog and I'm impressed!
    Extremely useful information specially the last part 🙂 I care for such info a lot.
    I was seeking this particular information for a very long time.

    Thank you and good luck.

    • Skype is encrypted and is much more secure than telephone or email, both of which have been used for psychotherapy for many decades. It may not be HIPPA compliant, which is why, of course I do not process Health Insurance. Psychotherapy is a broad term referring to the process of helping individuals overcome common emotional problems such as anxiety and depression and this is not restricted to medical or clinical treatment protocols.

  2. Yes! It is a GREAT Idea to have online therapy through Skype. That way people don't have to go out of their way to get the help they need if the are in a remote or rural area. Mindfulness is a very good word to describe this!

    • Thanks. I do indeed see many clients from rural areas of the US and Canada. But, interestingly, I also have many clients from New York and the East coast seek my services. They say online therapy is more convenient because it saves them the commute and often the waiting list is too long to see a local psychotherapist.

  3. It's great that we can use technology to help people with online therapy via Skype. Would you recommend it for people that have reservations or anxiety about in-person assistance or should they also try in-person?

    View Comment
    • I recommend online therapy for people who suffer from social anxiety. The quality of therapy is just the same as in-person sessions in a therapist's office, but with the added advantage that clients generally feel way more at ease online and this can lead to faster results.

  4. It's nice to see that there is people like you who support and help people and give some precious advice to anyone looking for an online therapy via the popular online sites such as Skype.

    • Thanks for your inquiry. Do email me so we can discuss Skype therapy for PTSD. I certainly do work with PTSD using Mindfulness Therapy. This provides an excellent way to work with painful and traumatic emotions. The first part of Mindfulness Therapy is to learn how to break free from the habit of becoming overwhelmed with your emotional reactions. This is called Mindfulness-based Affect Tolerance. After having established a non-reactive relationship with our emotions then we move to the second phase of Mindfulness Therapy which focuses on restructuring the emotional imagery (Image Reprocessing) that lies at the core of anxiety, depression and traumatic memories. Change this emotional imagery and you will change the emotion.

  5. How therapy via Skype can help the people suffering from depression? It surprise me because the person suffering through it they don't even want to communicate to their parents properly. They do want to stay alone. If their parents forcefully take them to hospital than they will go for treatment .

  6. I have been having a lot of trouble with and etopic pregnancy I had a few years back, and have been thinking about talking to a therapist about it but I hate going to there offices. I find being in a little office with someone staring at me and waiting for me to spill my guts out to them very uncomfortable. I think Skype therapy could help me with that, and I can get the help I need.

    • I am here to help you. I know how difficult it can be to deal with emotional trauma. I have a particular interest in helping people overcome PTSD and I think the online therapy approach has a lot to offer. It is more private for you; it's much easier to talk about difficult emotions from the privacy and comfort of your home.

    • I am sorry for your loss. The intention of this online therapy website is teach you practical and effective mindfulness-based tools for working with difficult emotions such as grief and loss, the pain resulting from marital conflict, a struggle with depression and addiction, and managing anxiety. Mindfulness Therapy is a very gentle, compassionate and positive approach that facilitates healing and transformation. It is also very much more focused that conventional talk therapy, in that we work on changing the underlying psychological process that causes chronic depression, anxiety or addiction. You learn how to develop compassion toward your own emotional pain through mindfulness and you will learn how to free the mind from habitual patterns of reactivity and aversion that simply fuel emotional suffering.

  7. Skype therapy is great for anyone dealing with social anxiety. Being in the comfort of your own home can really make a big difference and make for a more quality experience.

  8. Skype therapy with Dr. Strong was something new and he was very welcoming. I immediately felt comfortable. I especially liked that I could do it from home, I hate leaving my house for things like this. He helps you get better and stay better. Thanks Peter, I would definitely recommend you to friends and family.

    • There must be a good relationship between client and therapist of course, but good psychotherapy must go further than that. It must teach a person how to process emotions by themselves; it's about teaching psychological skills. In my experience it is completely possible to establish a very productive and personal relationship through Skype.

  9. Your approach to therapy sounds interesting. I never thought of anxiety in terms of specific images, but it makes sense. Does your approach work well with treating specific phobias?

    View Comment
    • Yes, the psychological language for emotions is imagery. This is a very important thing to understand and explore in detail. Most of us are not aware of this internal emotional imagery, but during online mindfulness therapy sessions we use mindfulness to uncover this imagery and then explore making subtle changes to the imagery. The key is when you change the imagery you change the emotion; the relationship between the two is very direct.
      A phobia is a classic example of image-based anxiety. In order to experience a phobia you MUST have the corresponding internal emotional imagery that can generate that fear. The external stimulus (e.g. spider) triggers this internal imagery which then creates the emotional reaction. Also, the body reacts to this imagery to produce the physical symptoms. When you uncover this phobic imagery you are then in a position to explore making positive changes that reduce the fear reaction.

  10. Great website! I've been looking through the links and I do think that Skype sessions would be helpful for my sister, who suffers from depression. However, I don't know if she uses Skype specifically; do you also have sessions available via Google Hangouts?

    • Thanks for your positive comment. People certainly prefer the privacy of one-on-one therapy sessions online over Skype. Dealing with anxiety or depression or an addiction is hard and many feel embarrassment talking to a therapist in person. The online therapy option is much more comfortable for most people and this can have a very positive effect on the outcome of therapy sessions. People seem to see benefits far sooner with online therapy in my experience.

  11. Having had a few sessions with Peter, I have found him to have an excellent understanding of the mindfulness (in the true Buddhist way it was intended) and in being able to explain it in a much clearer way than found elsewhere.
    I have found so many subtle differences in approach that it can be very easy to be misdirected on one's own but with Peter's help and clear understanding it was made much easier. I would very much recommend Mindfulness and a session with Peter

    • Thanks for your kind recommendations. I have enjoyed our online therapy sessions and teaching you the many practical ways of applying mindfulness and mindfulness meditation for overcoming anxiety and depression. I am glad you benefitted so quickly, and this is not uncommon - most of my clients see significant improvements after as few as 3-4 sessions.

      The reason why Mindfulness Therapy works so well is that it teaches you how to break free from habitual cycles of emotional reactivity. It teaches you how to stop being overcome by recurring patterns of negative thinking.

      Mindfulness Therapy also teaches you how to change the internal psychological imagery that causes anxiety and depression. This is a very important part of Mindfulness Therapy - when you change this imagery you also directly change the emotion.

  12. My sessions with Peter have been transformational, I suffered with depression for many years, when my father passed away and I was very low I found Peter's website, I had visited another therapist on one occasion, however I did not get a good empathetic feeling. I then contacted Peter and we started to have therapy sessions via Skype. Peter is kind, I have worked with my feelings and now have less Skype sessions than I initially needed, I am happily married and have a lovely dog and a beautiful home, none of this would have happened if I had not taken that big step and chosen to have therapy, it is a really hard step to take but it is the best thing I ever did, I would rather spend money on a session with Peter than buy a new top, although both if I can afford it! I see Peter less now, however if I do get a lull then Peter helps me to get back on my feet very quickly feeling alive and happy again, thank you Peter for all you have done for me.

    • It has been a pleasure and I have enjoyed our online therapy sessions together. Although I now live in Colorado, USA, I have many clients in the UK and Europe and it is always a pleasure to talk to a fellow Brit.

      People enjoy the convenience of online therapy through Skype and there is plenty of evidence showing the effectiveness of online therapy vs conventional in-person therapy sessions (see http://www.minddistrict.com/corporate/blog/evidence-effectiveness-online-therapy-important-2/).

      Most of my clients come to me because they are specifically interested in Mindfulness Therapy for overcoming anxiety and depression. This approach is quite different than conventional "talk therapy" as it addresses the underlying process that causes anxiety or depression rather than just providing temporary relief through catharsis. Mindfulness Therapy is also a better alternative for many to antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications which only treat symptoms but do little to change the underlying psychological process.

  13. Working with Peter was refreshing, as his therapy techniques are completely different from what you might expect from a traditional therapist. His techniques focus on long-term wellness, and they work! Meeting with him through Skype is nice, too, as you can get help from the comfort of your own home. I highly recommend Mindfulness Therapy!
