Online therapy sessions: Skype therapy

My name is Peter Strong, and I am a professional psychotherapist. I live in Boulder, Colorado, and I offer counseling online via Skype. Skype Counseling is becoming increasingly popular, mostly because of the convenience of online therapy. It means that you can talk to a psychotherapist without having to leave home. This is very important if you are suffering from social anxiety or agoraphobia, where it is really difficult to leave home. Skype Counseling is also a good choice if you can’t leave home for other reasons such as having driving anxiety, or if you live in a rural area where it is difficult for you to travel from home to see a therapist who may be many miles away. Skype therapy

So, the Skype Counseling option is an excellent alternative for many people. Also, if you live in a foreign country, Skype Counseling can be an ideal choice, and indeed, many of my clients live abroad as expatriates, working abroad, some in the Middle East, others in Europe, in non-English speaking countries, and many in Asia, where it is very difficult to find a local counselor to work with. So, the Online Counseling option becomes a very convenient choice.

The style of therapy that I offer via Skype is called Mindfulness Therapy, and this is growing tremendously in popularity in the last few years. Mindfulness Therapy provides a way of working with your unresolved emotions in a very direct way, cultivating awareness and cultivating friendship toward your emotions, developing a relationship with them that allows them to transform and heal. Most people react to painful emotions like anxiety or depression with aversion and resistance. But, aversion only makes things worse and actually prevents the healing and resolution of anxiety or depression. Healing and resolution occur only when you can fully embrace your painful emotions with this compassionate awareness that we call mindfulness. It may be hard at first, but it is the most fastest way to overcome anxiety and depression.
