Therapy by Skype
Online Therapy through Skype for Anxiety and Depression
Welcome! My name is Peter Strong, and I am a professional registered online therapist living in Boulder, Colorado. Besides meeting with clients in my office, I also provide online counseling through Skype. Skype Therapy, as it is commonly called, is becoming increasingly popular. It's so convenient for clients. It means that you are able to schedule your therapy sessions during your work day without having to leave your home or leave your office. It is certainly more convenient. With Skype, you're able to see the other person as well as talk to
them. It is really no different than being in the office with the therapist, or seeing the therapist in person. It's the same quality of the one-on-one psychotherapy that you could receive in-person, but with the added convenience, as I say.
Many people like therapy by Skype because it allows you to find the best 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 psychotherapist. 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 talk about in my book, 'The Path of Mindfulness Meditation'.
Mindfulness-based Cognitive 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 emotional suffering has grown tremendously.
It is 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. This 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.
