Skype Counseling Therapy - Counseling via Skype

With the advent of Skype it's now possible to talk to a psychotherapist online and see him or her at the same time. It's really just the same as if you were in the office together. I've been providing therapy online for several 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 person-to-person in the office.

The things that I most often work with are various anxiety disorders, including social phobia, panic attacks, agoraphobia, depression, stress and PTSD, and many other emotional problems that you would like help with.

The form of therapy that I provide via Skype 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 Therapy 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 within a second or two you react with an emotional reaction. It 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 as soon as they arise 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 visit my website,, and send me an email through the contact form.

Skype Counseling for Overcoming Anxiety

My name is Peter Strong, and I am an online therapist. I provide online anxiety therapy via Skype.

During these sessions, and most sessions are between 60 and 90 minutes, I will teach you very specific techniques for working with anxiety and depression.

It's very important that you learn how to essentially meditate on your anxiety. You have to from a stable relationship with the anxiety that's non-reactive. Most of us simply react to our anxiety or other unpleasant emotions with avoidance or some form of aversion. We don't like these emotions and we try to get rid of them. This is actually the worst thing you could possibly do. resistance simply makes the anxiety grow stronger; any form of reactivity simply strengthens the anxiety.

What I have found, and many others in the field of Mindfulness Therapy, is that what really facilitates change and transformation is when we can hold the emotion in our conscious awareness without reacting to it with avoidance or aversion. When you do that you are learning how to effectively be with that  feeling without becoming reactive and without becoming overcome by it. This teaches the mind a totally different way of processing the emotion, and this  way of being with the emotion without reacting allows the emotion to heal.

So, if you are interested in anxiety treatment online, do please visit my therapy website and contact me and then we can determine whether this approach of online mindfulness therapy is the best choice for you. So, visit my website and contact me.

Online Counseling via Skype

Online Counseling via Skype is a very effective and also very convenient option for many people. Convenience is one of the main factors - people are often too busy to take the time to drive to and from a therapist's office. It is much more time-efficient to simply turn to your computer and make that Skype video call at the scheduled time. Also, many people, such as mothers with young children and the disabled or elderly, find it hard to make the special arrangements necessary to leave home to travel to their therapist's office. There is also the issue of availability. People living in the country or isolated communities, those living abroad in non-English speaking countries, and even those living in cities such as New York or LA where the cost of counseling therapy is unaffordable for many people.
Online Counseling Therapy is also very convenient for those who are suffering from agoraphobia and social anxiety and thus find it extremely challenging to leave the security of their home.
Is Online Counseling Effective? There have been several studies that show that online counseling can be as effective as in-person counseling, especially for non-clinical neuroses such as anxiety, panic attacks and depression. The Online Therapy option is becoming more accepted by the established mental health communities and recently was recommended to be made available on the NHS. Of course, effectiveness depends very much on the kind of psychotherapy being offered. The online format works best for cognitive-based forms of psychotherapy such as CBT and Mindfulness Therapy. Actually, it has been my experience that the online format using Skype video actually enhances the therapeutic process. People enjoy the process and definitely feel less intimidated and more at ease, especially since they can organize their sessions from the comfort of their own home.
However, as a therapist, I am very excited at anything that gives the client more options and choices in getting the help that they need for managing their anxiety, depression or stress. The Online Counseling arena certainly offers a huge range of choices - especially as it is not geographically limited. Living in New York I can seek help from a therapist in Colorado, California or even abroad. Many of my clients live in foreign countries and find it difficult to find a therapist who speaks English or who shares the same culture.

Many clients are also very particular in the kind of psychotherapy counseling that they want and that may not be available locally. For example, many people know that Boulder is a world-class center for Buddhist Psychotherapy, which may not be available in Wisconsin!
All you need to start counseling through Skype is a laptop with Skype and PayPal and you are ready to start! But, be sure to get a free email consultation first and ask all your questions.
