talk to a therapist online - online therapy via Skype

Many people prefer the convenience of talking to a therapist online rather than visiting a psychotherapist or counselor in the office. It is NOT necessary to see each other in-person, although it certainly helps if you can see each other in real-time, which is made possible with the use of Skype video conferencing.


GO TO MY MAIN ONLINE THERAPY SITE TO SCHEDULE A SKYPE THERAPY SESSION:

Welcome! My name is Peter Strong and I am a professional psychotherapist living in Boulder, Colorado, and I offer Online Psychotherapy via Skype. This is a convenient service for many people who may be living in rural areas or living abroad, or really prefer the convenience of being able to talk to a psychotherapist online via Skype.

So, the style of psychotherapy that I provide and is described on my website, counselingtherapyonline.com, is called Mindfulness Therapy. Now, this is a very exciting and very unique way of working with difficult emotions, including anxiety, depression and trauma. I often see clients with some form of traumatic experience that they are trying to process from childhood or from life-changing events.

The Mindfulness approach is one of learning how to sit with your emotions, how to be present with your emotions without becoming reactive. It's the reactivity that stops emotions from healing, from changing and transforming. The process of Mindfulness teaches us how to be with our emotions without becoming reactive, without becoming overwhelmed by the emotion, without becoming consumed by it.

Mindfulness Therapy is very good for working with anxiety and depression, or emotional stress or trauma, as I said. It is also very good for working with addictions. Addictions, as you know, are driven by very strong compulsive emotions, and to break free of these emotions requires that you learn how to sit with those same compulsive emotions without becoming overwhelmed by them. This is a skill that I teach during the Online Psychotherapy sessions.

If you would like to learn more about Online Psychotherapy via Skype, please go over to my website, counselingtherapyonline.com, and read the pages on that site, watch the other videos that I have posted there and learn about this style of working with emotions. Then if it is something you would like to pursue, please CONTACT ME through the Contact Form on the website, and I look forward to meeting you and helping you through Online Psychotherapy via Skype. Thank you!
Here is another video to watch in which I explain how an online therapist can help you better manage anxiety and depression:

Welcome! My name is Peter Strong, and I am a professional online therapist. If you would like to talk to a therapist online, please visit my website, CounselingTherapyOnline.com and email me. I will be happy to answer your questions, and when you feel ready, you can schedule an online therapy session with me via Skype (Skype Therapy).

So, many people prefer online therapy because of it's convenience, because you can, of course, make your therapy call from home rather than having to visit a therapist in their 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, and that's very important because it's very essential that you feel comfortable during your therapy sessions.

The style of therapy that I offer, which is called called Mindfulness Therapy, works extremely well online. That's because it's based on teaching you very specific practical skills for working with your emotions, whether that's anxiety or depression or OCD or even an addiction. What I find most clients really need are practical methods of working with their emotions by themselves, between sessions, and that's what I really teach during these online therapy sessions.

The other reason why people like to talk to a therapist online is because they may want more anonymity than they can find in their local community. They don't necessarily want to talk to a local counselor. So, greater privacy is also a component of online psychotherapy.

So, if you would like to talk to a therapist online, please visit my website, CounselingTherapyOnline.com and send me an email and then we can discuss whether the online counseling route is a good choice for you and then we can schedule a session. All you need is Skype and PayPal and an internet connection and you are ready to start. It's very easy to get started with online therapy. So, please, I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you!

Let a Mindfulness-based Online Therapist Help You

Today, more and more people are turning to the internet for help with their anxiety or depression. Many people have tried traditional in-the-office counseling with a counselor or therapist, but feel that the old style "talking therapies" do not give them the skills and specific tools they need to resolve the underlying cause of their anxiety or emotional suffering.

There is a limit to how much benefit can be achieved through just talking about our feelings and the history of when our anxiety or panic attacks began. Gaining insight is a factor, but often such analytical insights are not sufficient to change the underlying emotions or traumatic memories that continue to haunt us.

When you work with a therapist online the focus is on changing the underlying cause of your emotional suffering rather than just talking about it. This is especially the case for Online Mindfulness Therapy as developed by professional online therapist and author, Dr. peter Strong. This system works extremely well online via live one-to-one Skype video sessions. The focus in mindfulness therapy is to help you change your relationship to your inner core emotions.

You will discover that the problem is not in the anxiety or depression itself but in the way that we react to our emotions - usually a combination of avoidance and denial coupled with strong resistance and aversion. This is the wrong kind of relationship that simply makes the problem worse.

In Mindfulness Therapy Online, Dr. Strong teaches clients how to embrace their emotions - even the painful ones. "You have to learn how to make friends with your pain, not avoid it or fight it." says Dr Strong. "Only the can real healing take place."

It takes some practice, mostly because this is such a foreign concept to most of us. We want to get rid of our anxiety, not make friends with it! Yet, experience has shown time and time again that this approach works better than any amount of self-analysis.

People choose Online Therapy because they want something more convenient and less intimidating than office visits. In deed, this can be very difficult for someone suffering from agoraphobia or social anxiety. The internet solution allows people to have their session in the comfort of their own home.

Other people may not have access to a local therapist or counselor so working with a therapist online may be the only viable option for them. But, many of the clients who sign up with Dr. Strong are looking for something different than traditional talking therapies. They may have heard about mindfulness and the profound effects that are being reported in clinical studies. There is no doubt that mindfulness psychology, based on Buddhist teaching but translated into modern methods, is changing the whole face of modern psychotherapy.

Remember that licensing and even training does not guarantee that the psychotherapist will be effective for you, and there are many therapists who are extremely effective but not licensed. A pastor may be able to give you the counseling you need even though he is not licensed to provide psychotherapy. The most important advice I can give you is to interview the prospective therapist and determine for yourself if you agree with his or her approach and philosophy to psychotherapy and also to trust your intuition.

As an online psychotherapist specializing in Mindfulness Therapy, I will work with you in a very focused way and teach you specific strategies to transform any underlying habitual patterns of negative reactive thinking and I will help you resolve and heal any core emotions that are behind the reactive thinking. The mindfulness methodology is immensely effective for doing this and most people can expect to see major improvements after far fewer sessions than are typical for older style "talk therapy" or counseling. Do feel free to contact me to learn more about how I can help you.
