Welcome! My name is Peter Strong, and I am a professional online psychotherapist. I live in Boulder, Colorado, and I offer therapy online via 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 is very important if you are suffering from social anxiety or agoraphobia, where it has become really difficult to leave home. Online psychotherapy is also very convenient 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 to drive to see a therapist who may be many miles away. therapy via skype
So, the Skype Counseling option is a very good alternative for many people. Also, if you are living abroad, Skype Therapy 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 therapist to work with. So, the Online Counseling option becomes a very convenient choice.
The style of therapy 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 heal. Most people react to unpleasant emotions like anxiety or depression with aversion and resistance. But, aversion only makes things worse and actually inhibits the transformation of anxiety or depression. Healing and resolution occur only when you can fully embrace your emotions with this compassionate awareness that we call mindfulness. It may be difficult to do at first, but it is the most direct route to overcome anxiety and depression.
