Welcome! My name is Peter Strong, and I am a professional online psychotherapist. I live in Boulder, Colorado, and I offer online therapy via skype. Skype Counseling is becoming increasingly popular, mostly because of the convenience of online therapy. It means that you can talk to a therapist from the comfort of your own home. This is very important if you are suffering from social anxiety disorder or agoraphobia, where it has become really difficult to leave home. Online therapy is also a good choice for people who can’t leave home for other reasons such as having driving anxiety, or if you live in a remote area where it is difficult to drive to see a therapist who may be many miles away.
So, the Skype Counseling option is an excellent choice for many people. Also, if you are living in a foreign country, Skype Counseling will 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 therapist to work with. So, the Online Counseling option becomes a very convenient choice.
The style of psychotherapy that I offer online 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 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 anxiety and depression 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.
