Talk to a Therapist for help with anxiety and depression

Nearly all of us experience depression in one form or another at some time in our lives. Nonetheless, there are many steps that you can take to handle depression and among the most crucial approaches would be to work on altering the underlying patterns of thinking that is negative in the center of depression. Mindfulness Therapy is one of the most effective tools for doing this, since it helps us tune in at an extremely thorough manner to the entire procedure for habitual reactive thinking. Mindfulness additionally provides the right type of internal space, the curative space as it is called in mindfulness psychology that promotes the transformation and healing of the stuck emotional energy that fuels negative thinking.

Mindfulness Treatment is in some ways like a cat-and-mouse game by which you develop the finely tuned focus of a cat, eternally as it sits in front of a mouse hole, waiting for its prey to emerge and patient, watchful. In our case the victim aren't mice, but the countless negative thoughts and emotional reactions that emerge from the shadows of our conditioned head. In Mindfulness Meditation and Mindfulness Therapy, we train our perceptions, always refining them so that we become expert hunters, in a position to view the impulse to react before it takes hold. This really is not much worse than remaining put as the sufferer, which of course is just one of the major contributing factors in melancholy. Rather than waiting for suffering to grab us by the throat and feeling helpless, we decide to face it by teaching ourselves the best way to eventually become a specialist hunter, which means learning to become experts at understanding the impulse to respond before it is converted into actions that is unskillful.

Depressed people often feel unable to deal with their emotional reactions to life events and have a tendency to feel always overwhelmed by them. Feeling overwhelmed leads to inertia and fatigue, which makes us less able to survive. Depression is a reply in which the mind contracts and literally closes down, and withdraws in the world. But it's crucial that you understand that this really is not immutable, not truth, but simply the effect of some quite powerful conditioning which has caused us to become enslaved by our emotional reactions, negative thinking and beliefs. Beliefs, thoughts and emotional reactions can all really be changed, but first we must learn to be a hunter and take the initiative to train ourselves to catch our negative thoughts "in the action."

What next, after we have caught our reactions?

 Acquiring the skill of mindfulness of the arising of reactions is hugely important, but what you do next will define whether the reactivity will be able to change, transform and solve itself, and whether you'll be in a position to break free of its grasp.

For those who follow the road of mindfulness, we decide to greet the reaction, the impulse which is awakening, the emotion or idea which is trying to take control. I recognize you. You're most welcome here, please take a seat." We learn never to run from the impulse, rather than to react to the emotions with aversion to it. We watch very carefully for the secondary instincts to become involved in emotion or the reaction, to become identified with the contents of thinking and caught right up in the story-line. Mindfulness isn't thinking about things; it is the direct consciousness of things as they are, without an observer, without an ego remarking, judging and assessing. This is that which we call the Response of Mindfulness, the choice to be conscious and fully present without becoming reactive. Reactivity leads to more of the same and is enslavement; it inhibits change. Responsiveness is freedom from thoughts and emotions and this boosts healing, transformation and change. The head is closed by reactivity; both the heart as well as the head opens, and it is in this curative space that real change can take place.

Accordingly, after Acknowledgement comes Relationship, the approval of the right of our internal ideas and emotions to exist, which will be the foundation of compassion and love. Ultimately, nothing can resist this powerful presence, and everything becomes free to change and cure itself in the light and heat of mindfulness. Because it's about learning and caring just how to care for the suffering that lies within, quite simply, mindfulness fixes. That is not abstract love, but love directed in the comprehensive "wreck" that's the chaos of our thoughts. We choose, as the hunter chooses, to bring this therapeutic spaciousness to every fragment of the mind; each negative thought, belief and emotion. In this curative space of mindfulness, painful emotions, rage, distress, guilt or fear are at last allowed to heal in their own manner. They want the freedom to perform their dance, which will be called educating the "mindfulness of the existence of that which has arisen."

Suffering and also the depression that results from long-term suffering is due to not letting internal pain to perform its dancing also to do whatever it has to do bring concerning the release of mental energy which has become trapped and frozen, and to achieve resolution. Internal liberty, which is presence and the conscious knowledge that we call mindfulness is required by finish. Mindfulness is the stage on which experience can complete its dancing and come to your close. When we prepare in mindfulness, we learn to do that from moment to moment, cultivating the dancing of experience mindfulness of the springing up of experience as well as the cessation of expertise. When we allow this to continue without interruption and opposition, then we can sublimate melancholy, nervousness, panic and worry, and release that energy that is stuck back to the mind where it becomes accessible to make change and activity in our daily life and in our relationships.

This is not metaphysical speculation, not New Age idealism, but something that can be experienced and felt. I invite you implement these teachings to transform and cure your depression or anxiety, and to learn more on the subject of mindfulness meditation, mindfulness and Mindfulness Meditation Therapy.

Now, life coaches and many psychotherapists, counselors recognize the widespread dependence on education in the field of emotional direction and self-help, and therefore are offering this in the kind of personalized coaching online, especially through email correspondence and Skype sessions. On-Line training offers many advantages to the customer, and advantage has to be one of the best reasons why On-Line Counseling is becoming more and more popular. Another extremely important advantage of Internet Counseling is that it empowers the customer, letting them to steer the process in a sense which works in their opinion. The very process of preparing for a Skype videocam session and writing ones ideas and feelings down is curative in itself. The Internet Treatment process also helps both therapist and client focus on designing specific answers to particular issues. Commonly this may involve exercises and "homework" assignments the client can experiment with at home.

Mindfulness Meditation Therapy is proving to be a very powerful strategy for internet counseling, because it teaches customers how to work with their emotions utilizing a really structured and personalized approach.

There are some рrоs and cons to using an online therapy service. They are listed below:

ADVANTAGES

·      Тhе grеаtеst аdvаntаgе to using an оnlіnе therapy site іs thе соnvеnіеnсе it offers you. You can access your therapist at a time that suits you and even if you are traveling.

·      Аnоthеr sіgnіfісаnt аdvаntаgе іs аnоnуmіtу. Сlіеnts саn bе muсh mоrе fоrthсоmіng, knоwіng thеу аrе nоt bеіng judged аnd sсrutіnіzеd. Ѕеlf-dіsсlоsurе аnd hоnеstу tеnds tо оссur mоrе easily bесаusе оf the аnоnуmіtу provided.

·      Іndіvіduаls саn соmfоrtаblу ассеss оnlіnе therapy on their mobile phones and tablets. Many people use these in preference to a PC, especially if they are traveling.

·      Ѕоmе реорlе ехрrеss thеmsеlvеs muсh bеttеr іn wrіtіng thаn thеу dо іn реrsоn. Fоr suсh реорlе, оnlіnе еmаіl-bаsеd соunsеlіng оffеrs а реrfесt аvеnuе fоr dіsсussіng thеіr рrоblеms wіth а рrоfеssіоnаl соunsеlоr.

·      All research to date indicates that online psychotherapy is just as effective as in-person psychotherapy. There are even some indications that it may be better because clients feel more comfortable with the online format and with being able to call from the comfort of their own home.


DISADVANTAGES

·      Online therapy is not suitable if you need medical treatment and prescription medications such as antidepressants. It is not suitable for treating psychiatric illnesses.

·      Online therapy is not suitable if you are in crisis and at risk of harming yourself or another.

·      Sometime internet reception can be less than optimal which may affect the quality of communication, although this is less of a problem today.

·      Medical insurance companies do not yet cover online therapy.

 Online Therapy Websites

You may be asking yourself how can I find an online therapy site? Simply do a Google search. There are many sites offering psychotherapy and counseling such as

“www.blahtherapy.com’’
“www. www.7cupsoftea.com’’
“www.talkspace.com’’
“www.asktheinternettherapist.com’’
and of course, my website: www.counselingtherapyonline.com.

Most of these are actually directories of therapists with a short biography for each. You will need to select a counselor and then make sure you can email them first to find out if the fit is right before proceeding to schedule a paid session. Personally, I would never recommend paying in advance for a therapy session until you know exactly who you will be talking to and that you feel comfortable that the therapist is right for you. My site is different and you can schedule a therapy session with me directly.
