Talk with a therapist online for Help with Anxiety and Depression.
So if you would like to talk with a therapist online for help with anxiety depression, addictions or any other psychological emotional problem that can benefit from psychotherapy then please do contact me through my website. So I provide online therapy over Skype for anxiety and depression, or OCD, for addictions and many other emotional psychological problems.

Mindfulness Therapy is very effective indeed for helping you break free from those habits that feed anxiety and depression. This is the main focus of training, how to break free from that reactive identification with our emotions, with our thoughts and with our beliefs and also with our memories too. It's just a habit. The thought or emotion gets triggered out of conditioning, out of habit. And then what tends to happen is that we just fall right into it, right into the grip of the emotion or the reactive thoughts or the memory, if it is traumatic, and then we proliferate that suffering.

So the key, the first step to breaking this habit of reactive identification is to develop mindful consciousness of these habits. Because when you bring consciousness to the habits that takes away their power, because habits only work when there's no consciousness around; they are unconscious by their nature.

So how do you do this? Well we learn how to meditate on our mind. That means meditating on our emotions or thoughts, our traumatic memories, or emotionally charged beliefs, whatever they may be, that are limiting us and creating suffering.

We do not accept these habits. Instead we learn to meditate on them. So that means replaying the emotion, the memory or the thoughts in the mind, deliberately bringing it into the mind, then sitting with that mental object with mindfulness, with consciousness observing it. And this is the important thing to understand here. The more that you become the Observer, the freer you become from the observed. When you are observing anxiety you become the Observer not the anxiety. So the action of observing consciously actually frees you from the anxiety. And this is extremely important, to get this separation from the emotion or the thoughts or the memory or any other content of mind. If there's no separation then you simply become a victim of those mental objects. You become consumed by them, overwhelmed by them, a slave to your emotions and your reactive thoughts. So. But deliberately training with them using mindfulness meditation we develop more and more freedom from those habitual thoughts and emotions. So that's really important.

When you have established sufficient freedom, then you can begin to respond skillfully to help any unresolved emotion heal, and that's the second, primary component if you like of Mindfulness Therapy or mindfulness meditation therapy. We learn how to respond with compassion to any emotional suffering that we experience in the mind. We help it heal. We help it heal by establishing a conscious compassionate relationship with that part of ourself that's in pain.

And this is very much like a parent-child relationship. You can think of the emotional pain, whether it's anxiety or depression or guilt or shame or anger or poor self-esteem, whatever it might be, you can think of it as being like a child. The child is in pain. Your job is to develop your consciousness as a parent to that child to help it heal. So that's part of mindfulness meditation training, and I will teach you how to do this in great detail. It's not just a question of reading a book about this; it's not just feeling inspired and then struggling with it. No. You need very specific guidance and training on how to do this. But this approach works.

So please, if you're interested in learning more about online therapy via Skype, then simply email me. If you would like to get started and start learning how to use mindfulness to work with your emotional suffering then e-mail me. I look forward to meeting you and helping you. Thank you.
