I am a professional online therapist. Many people prefer online counseling because it is so much more convenient, because you can make your online therapy call from home rather than having to visit a counselor in his or her office. The other advantage of online therapy is that it's generally very much less intimidating for you as the client. It feels much more comfortable for you, and that's very important because the more comfortable you feel the better will be the outcome from your therapy sessions.
The variety of psychotherapy that I provide via Skype is called Mindfulness Therapy, and this style of psychotherapy works extremely well over the internet. This is mainly because Mindfulness Therapy is concerned with teaching you very specific practical methods for working with your emotions, anxiety or depression or OCD or an addiction. What I find most people really need are practical methods for working with their emotions by themselves, between sessions, and that's what I focus on teaching during these online counseling sessions.
Another reason why people like to see a therapist online is because they may prefer more anonymity than they can find in their local community. People don't necessarily want to talk to a local counselor. So, greater privacy is also one of the benefits of online therapy.
So, if you would like to talk to a therapist online, please visit my website, CounselingTherapyOnline.com and send me an email so we can discuss whether online therapy is appropriate for you, and then we can schedule a Skype session. All you need is Skype and PayPal and a good internet connection and you are ready to start. It's very easy to get started with online psychotherapy. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you!

In essence persistent anxiety is a kind of extreme worrying about well-being, work, fear of the future or a wide selection of situations which could happen in the near future that creates an enormous amount of anguish that is emotional. What exactly can we do to control our anxiety levels?
It is important to understand that anxiety, like most emotional reactions, has a construction. The mixture of two components: Thought structures is not a random process but produces it, and associated Mental Feeling Energy.
We're all acquainted with the routines of recurring negative thinking: the consideration loops that preserve and amplify anxiety and worry. This inner conversation sometimes strikes us in the wee hours of the morning, if we are able to sleep whatsoever and may be persistent! This negative thinking will solidify into generalized beliefs about ourselves and others that takes on a life of their own, regarding the future. We become consumed by worry about things that may never occur. But, above all, the worry thinking doesn't in any way help us deal with the objective reality of things that need our attention. In reality the reactive thinking makes us less able to manage, leaves us feeling confused and drained.
Undoubtedly, the path to controlling anxiety must call for shifting beliefs and these internal negative thought loops. However, most people find this extremely difficult to do. They understand at a conceptual level the worry is irrational and never helpful and is causing them to become sick, but no quantity of self -talk appears to shift the anxiety. This is only because there is an alternative part that's really far more significant than the content of the negative ideas and beliefs: Psychological Feeling Energy. This really is what gives meaning and power to our thoughts, as well as in stress formations, large concentrations of energy that is emotional become attached to beliefs or the words. Without the emotional investment, it has nowhere to go and in time it's going to fade away, although the negative thought may arise out of habit.
On releasing the stuck, frozen emotional energy which has become attached to habitual thinking, focusing is one of the primary focuses of Mindfulness Therapy. We train ourselves to identify these negative thought reactions. Because we cannot alter what we cannot see this is quite important. Therefore, we have to make our responses by paying really close attention to get them, visible as and when they arise. But after mastering this, we shift our attention away from the content or narrative that forms the cognitive construction of the anxiety reaction to the emotional feeling quality that gives it power. That is called "sitting with all the emotion." We learn to sit with our anxiety, without thinking and getting caught up in reactivity that is additional, or in attempting to assault the negative notions. We are, in fact, understanding how to turn our focus towards this changes everything, and the reaction.
Jeff, an effective software engineer, suffered from crippling social anxiety and suffered from panic responses; worrying that he would freeze up when asked to talk about his work at seminars as well as in group meetings on the job. He would detect his heart racing and he was obsessed that he would pass out right there in the midst of the event or demonstration. He was very scared of any new situation and hated leaving house, despised traveling.
As he did this, he started to see details in regards to the inner construction of the feeling energy. This surprises most people when they start mindfulness treatment. They've never really looked into their feelings before. Thoughts about them for hours; suffered at their hands; but never really sat down and looked at what this "feeling" really is.
What Jeff detected is the restless feeling was definitely associated with intense red and orange, with bright colors, and these colors felt hot. He also seen how the color seemed to take the form of a fuzzy cloud, a fog that surrounded his entire body.
This type of detail that is experiential and sensory is very important because they're concrete, and Jeff undoubtedly felt these shades resonated along with his anxiety feeling. The power that contributes to transformation is always in the details, not the subjective notions or notions about an emotion. When a person says, "I am worried" they're only experiencing a trivial amount of the emotion and this can be very difficult to alter as it's so abstract. We can experiment with making subtle alterations to the color and type of the emotion and monitor how things are changed by this. In the case of Jeff, he discovered that when he envisioned surrounding the hot colored feelings that were reddish together with the vastness of the night skies the amount of his tension fell from an 8 to a 4 on a scale of 10.
This simple change in his inner imagery allowed the level of anxiety to change radically, and this was followed with a significant shift in his perception of the situation and in his beliefs and self-confidence. This fundamental change was followed by the mental transformations at the feeling level, since the beliefs rely on feeling energy to give them significance and power and this is quite typical. You shift the feeling as the imagery changes, so when the feeling energy is discharged the beliefs and cognition change in direct proportion.
The other exciting part of Mindfulness-based Online Therapy is the fact that it not only facilitates the resolution and transformation of enduring, including anxiety or depression or anger, but nonetheless, it also brings about a fundamental shift in our identity as we start to break free from our habitual patterns of reactivity. Jeff started to experience himself as the nighttime sky rather than as the hot spot of stress: He starts to see himself as the vast wide presence of the consciousness instead of the contracted state of mental reactions. This changes everything.
Mindfulness Therapy is just one of the very most promising approaches for assisting you to learn the way to focus on making changes in the core level; rather different that simply talking about your problems, which is not so efficient for resolving emotional responses that are constant. If you're feeling stuck, Mindfulness Therapy helps you get unstuck; should you are feeling too concerned and anxious, Mindfulness Therapy helps you locate inner balance; if you are feeling over-stressed, Mindfulness Therapy can help you neutralize your habitual anxiety reactions; in the event you are afflicted with depression, Mindfulness Therapy can help you neutralize the negative self-talk and thinking. Above all, Mindfulness Therapy creates an internal healing space, the space of mindful consciousness that allows emotions unwind, to unfold and be malleable again. Mindfulness lets emotional anguish transform, to alter and conclude.
There are lots of novels written including my own, personal book on the issue called The Path of Mindfulness Meditation, which relies on years of investigation and working with clients. The power of mindfulness as an instrument for easing mental healing is gaining a great deal of respect and popularity. This could undoubtedly make the Buddha to grin, as he more than another man in history taught about the application of mindfulness for cultivating wholesome activity as well as for freeing your brain in the anguish that we create through our patterns of reactivity that is habitual that is blind.
The specific type of mindfulness therapy that I write about in The Path of Mindfulness Meditation and developed many years back focuses aware consciousness directly on the emotions that are debatable and efficiently creates a curative space around the emotion that has an immensely transformative effect. This is why it is known as Mindfulness Meditation Therapy (MMT).
We all understand how reactivity just makes things worse and merely serves to bolster our anguish, along with those around us. Well mindfulness is the antidote: the proliferation of reactivity stops and after that creates this internal healing space in which the emotional energy which is now adhered can become fluid again, resulting in healing and favorable change. Some customers have described this healing process as being like shining rays of sunshine on a block of ice. The ice (frozen emotional energy) simply melts as well as the water becomes fluid again and becomes accessible to nourish the world (your psyche). It describes the healing effect of creating internal freedom through mindfulness, and is a wonderful image.
Mindfulness Therapy is a way of learning to work with reactive ideas and emotions that are reactive. It helps you change your relationship to the information of your mind in order that you really do not become overwhelmed by wounding emotions, and by reactive thinking, excessive worrying, too. In my opinion, Mindfulness Therapy is among the most reliable methods available right now for working with anxiety and depression and for resolving those compulsive emotions behind obsessive compulsive thinking, or OCD, as well as for working with dependence.
