My name is Peter Strong, and I am a professional online therapist. I live in Boulder, Colorado, and I offer Online Counseling using Skype. Skype Counseling is becoming increasingly popular, mostly because of the convenience of online therapy. It means that you can get help from a therapist from the comfort of your own home. This can be very important if you are suffering from social anxiety disorder or agoraphobia, where it is really difficult to leave home. Online psychotherapy 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 may be difficult for you to travel from home to see a therapist who may live many miles away.
So, the Skype Counseling option is a very good alternative for many people. Also, if you are living abroad, Skype Counseling will be an excellent choice, and indeed, many of my clients are living 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. therapy over skype
The style of psychotherapy that I offer in these Skype sessions is called Mindfulness Therapy, and this is growing tremendously in popularity in the last 10 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 change 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 recovery and resolution of anxiety or depression. Healing and resolution occur after you fully embrace your emotional pain with this compassionate awareness that we call mindfulness. It may be difficult to do at first, but it is the most fastest way to overcome anxiety and depression.
