Online Therapy Service via Skype

My name is Peter Strong and I am a professional psychotherapist in Boulder, Colorado. I offer online help through Skype.
Have you ever wanted to talk to a therapist online? It's a very good and very popular option these days. Many people are choosing an online counseling service as an alternative to a meeting with a therapist in an office. One advantage is that it is much more convenient, of course, since you don't have to drive to the counselor's office. You don't have to waste all that time spent driving or waiting. You can call from home, or from your office, or wherever you are, even from your hotel room if you're traveling abroad. It's definitely a better choice for most people.

With the advent of Skype it's now possible to talk to a therapist online and see him or her in real-time. The experience is just the same as if you were meeting in person. I've been providing online counseling for over 5 years years now. As far as I'm concerned there is no real difference between online or in-person therapy, especially if you're teaching some form of cognitive therapy or mindfulness therapy, as I teach, where the emphasis is on teaching skills for working with difficult emotions. This can be transmitted online through Skype just as well as it can face-to-face in the office.

The emotional issues that I usually work with are chronic anxiety, including social anxiety, panic attacks, agoraphobia, non-clinical depression, emotional stress and PTSD, and many other emotional issues that you would like help with.

The form of therapy that I provide is called Mindfulness Therapy. This is a more comprehensive form of CBT, cognitive behavioral therapy, that incorporates mindfulness as well as CBT.

Really the whole focus of mindfulness-based CBT is to teach you how to form a different quality of relationship with your emotions, because this is the central problem right here. Most of us react to our emotions with aversion, resistance and avoidance. There's a stimulus in the environment, something happens, someone says something and then immediately you react with an emotional reaction. This reactivity becomes habitual. Then those habitual emotional reactions just run our life and we become a victim to these habits.

The whole focus of mindfulness therapy is to learn to see these habitual reactions and through becoming aware of them you begin to break free from their grip. Then you can begin to work on the underlying emotional energy that fuels that habitual emotional reaction. When you begin to neutralize the emotional energy that fuels the habit, then the habit cannot sustain itself and it begins to lose power and subside.

Mindfulness therapy is a very good choice for many people these days. It's becoming very popular, especially for treating anxiety and depression. If you would like to learn more about mindfulness therapy and how to schedule a Skype therapy session with an online therapist, please CONTACT ME. Talk to me about the problems that you're struggling with and ask your questions about the process of mindfulness therapy. I am happy to answer your questions, and then we can schedule a session. Wherever you live, in the USA or abroad, we can usually find a good time that will fit your schedule as well as mine. Please go over to my website and contact me today. Thank you.

The advantages of seeing a Therapist Online

There are many reasons why people prefer talking to a therapist online either through email or telephone, instant massaging or Skype. Here are a few of the most cited reasons:

  • Convenience. People like the convenience of talking to a therapist online. There is no wasted time in driving to and from the therapist's office. This can be a major consideration for people living in busy urban areas such as New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco in the USA, or other cities such as London and Tokyo, abroad.
  • The Comfort Factor. Being able to talk to an Online Therapist is more comfortable for you. My clients tell me how much more comfortable they feel during therapy sessions when they can stay in the comfortable and familiar surroundings of their choice, whether that is their home or office. This is an important consideration because the more comfortable and relaxed you feel, the more efficient the therapy process.
  • Less Intimidating. Working with painful emotions is difficult enough, and doing this in front of another person adds another level of anxiety that can affect the therapeutic outcome. It can often take many sessions before a client feels comfortable talking to a therapist in person. The Skype video screen gives just enough separation that can really help you in your process of working with painful emotions. Combined with the comfort factor, working with an online therapist can in many cases be significantly more effective that seeing a therapist in person.
  • The Empowerment Factor. Good therapy is all about helping you change from being a victim of your emotions to being able to embrace your emotions with conscious presence and compassion. The more comfortable you feel, the less intimidated you feel and the less distracted you feel by unfamiliar surroundings, the more likely you are to make this all important shift in perception from victim to healer. In the end, it is always you who heal your emotional suffering and this is a function of how empowered you feel. I have seen how the online Skype Therapy format enables this process.
  • Avoiding Dependency. The client-therapist relationship is very important, but it is also extremely important that you do not become dependent on the therapist to tell you how to live your life. Therapy should develop autonomy and self-confidence in the client and not a sense of being inadequate and looking to the therapist to make it all right. Again, the slight distancing effect of the internet format helps stop dependency.
  • Living Abroad. Many of my clients live abroad, in Canada, Mexico and South America, overseas in Europe and the UK, the Middle East, and as far away as Japan and Singapore. In foreign countries language and cultural differences make it hard to find local therapists to work with. The opportunity to work with an online therapist who speaks the same language and comes from the same cultural background is a major factor.
  • Anonymity. People living in rural tight-knit communities where everyone knows each other may not want to work with a local counselor or therapist. The option of seeing a therapist online is very attractive because you can keep this private.
  • More and Better Choices. Many people are looking for a better alternative to the traditional forms of talking therapy, or the more common form of seeing a psychiatrist to get prescription medications. In fact, most of my clients have already tried these routes and have not gotten the results they wanted and so have been motivated to search for better alternatives. One of the great advantages of internet-based therapy is that you have so much more choices available to you. You can search for the style of therapy that best matches your beliefs and philosophy. These choices may not be available locally. Many of my clients have heard about Mindfulness Therapy and Buddhist Psychology and the remarkable impact these mindfulness-based approaches are making today on the whole field of psychotherapy. 

"Online Counseling via Skype works very well for me. I can have my sessions at home, which is very convenient and comfortable for me. Peter teaches very practical mindfulness methods for working with my panic anxiety, and these have been remarkable effective."

  1. Skype therapy is great! It really widens the options of seeing a professional in an office or doing it via videoconferencing. Depending on your mental disposition you can keep appointments all the time.

    • Making psychotherapy more available and less "clinical" is one of my motivations here. Good psychotherapy should be about learning how to better manage your mind, emotional reactions and thoughts. We all need to do this.

  2. For those individuals who are ambivalent about therapy or who may be uncomfortable with traditional models of therapy, may find online counselling more suitable whereby it has been found that online therapy is preferred by those who are uncomfortable with talking face to face with someone about their problems or who are suffering from social phobias, agoraphobias or anxiety disorders.

  3. Choosing the right therapist is important. You need to feel comfortable with the person and with his or her approach. Trust your intuition above everything in this decision-making process.
