Talk to an Online Mindfulness Psychotherapist for Managing Anxiety and Depression via Skype.
So if you're interested in Mindfulness Therapy and you would like to talk to a psychotherapist like myself who specializes in Mindfulness Therapy for treating anxiety and depression then do please go to my website, learn more about this service and contact me if you would like to schedule some online therapy sessions with me.

So I offer online Mindfulness Therapy using Skype. Skype is important. It makes online therapy much more effective when you can see each other. When you can see each other then there's really no difference between Skype Therapy when compared to meeting a therapist in person.

So Mindfulness Therapy is quite different than conventional talking therapy or counseling that you may have already tried. The whole focus in Mindfulness Therapy is changing the underlying process that causes your anxiety or depression or addiction or whatever form of emotional suffering that you may have.

There's always an underlying process, a psychological process going on that produces that emotional state, and most of the time we are not really very aware of how we create anxiety or depression. It becomes an automatic habit and like all habits it operates out of consciousness, so we're not really aware of how it works.

The whole purpose Mindfulness Therapy is to look very carefully inside to see how it works, to see how the mind creates anxiety or depression or any other form with emotional suffering. And the primary way to do this is through learning how to meditate on our emotions. So this is quite a novel concept for many people. They don't normally think about meditating on their emotions. People are more likely to want to escape from their emotions. But it is very clear from the work that I have done over the years, that the primary problem for healing is avoidance and also aversion, hating the internal emotional pain.

When me react to painful emotions with avoidance or with aversion then that has the definite effect of reinforcing that emotional suffering and the habit that produces it. So in mindfulness we learn how to change our relationship to any emotions that are creating pain. You learn how to form a conscious and non-reactive relationship with them. That's the most important first step in helping them heal. So we do this by meditating on our emotions.

We bring the emotion into the mind. Imagining it, but on purpose and on our terms, which is quite different than the normal habitual reaction. We look at it and the first thing we look for is the constellation of reactive thoughts, habitual reactive thoughts, that feeds the anxiety or depression.

So thoughts are essentially a form of fuel that feeds the emotional suffering. Thoughts to not cause anxiety or depression, they feed it. Now when we learn how to see these thoughts clearly then we can begin to change our relationship to them and overcome this habit of identifying with those thoughts and beliefs that tend to feed the underlying suffering.

So breaking the habit of reactive identification is a key feature of mindfulness training and therapy. We can hold the emotion in the mind. We can hold the constellation of thoughts in the mind and not become overwhelmed by them, not become a prisoner of those mental objects. So developing this objectivity is essential for healing and it's a central focus of Mindfulness Therapy. I will train you how to do this.It Is really quite surprising. It's not that difficult.

So if you would like to speak with a therapist online via Skype then please send me an email and let's schedule a session.
