My name is Peter Strong, PhD; I am a Professional ONLINE THERAPIST and I offer online therapy via Skype for the treatment of anxiety, depression, addictions, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Anger Management Online, Stress Management and treatment for PTSD and any other emotional problems that you may be struggling with. During these online therapy sessions I will teach you effective methods for working with your emotions and patterns of reactive-compulsive thinking using the well-established techniques of Mindfulness Therapy and Online Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I specialize in Mindfulness Therapy, which is particularly effective for anxiety and depression and you can learn more about this style of psychotherapy by reading the many articles on this site ONLINE THERAPY and by watching the videos on my main online therapy site and on my YouTube Online Therapy Video channel.

ONLINE MINDFULNESS THERAPY FOR ANXIETY - Dr Peter Strong


A brief introduction to the 3 R's  of Mindfulness Therapy: RECOGNITIONRELATIONSHIPRESOLUTION. First mindfulness teaches us to wake up to our habitual reactivity and negative thinking; secondly mindfulness teaches us how to turn towards our suffering and form a non-reactive relationship with our anxiety; third, mindfulness creates a "therapeutic space" in which emotions begin to  soften, unfold, transform and finally resolve.
