Welcome. My name is Peter Strong and I'm a professional psychotherapist specializing in Mindfulness Therapy which I offer online over Skype.

So if you would like to learn how to start Skype Therapy to help you overcome your anxiety or depression or other emotional problems then please reach out to me by e-mail. Tell me more about yourself and how I can help you and I'll be happy to answer any questions you have about Skype Therapy.

People like online therapy in general because it's so much more convenient. It means you can organize your sessions from home. You don't have to leave home to go to a therapist's office, and this can be very beneficial.

So I see lots of people who suffer from agoraphobia, and I also see quite a few people who suffer from driving phobia and difficulty with driving in general. But I also have quite a few clients such as stay at home mums or the elderly or people who generally find it difficult to leave home for whatever reason.

So online therapy has a lot of great advantages. And as long as you use Skype or similar video format then the Skype Therapy sessions are really no different than talking with a therapist in person. It's really important that you can see each other. That makes the communication more effective and equivalent to meeting in person.

Another reason why people like Skype Therapy is because it feels more comfortable in general. It is far less intimidating than going to a clinic or a therapist's office.

It's also more private too and that's another feature that many people like. When you're dealing with difficult emotional problems, orr maybe an addiction, it's often difficult to talk about this in public. It's easier for you to talk in private, and of course talking to to me through Skype offers you that degree of privacy.

So if you would like to learn more about Skype Therapy and the Mindfulness Therapy approach that I specialize in, do please email me.

All you need to start Skype Therapy is a laptop, tablet or even an iPhone, which has her Skype installed on it, and you need a reasonably good internet connection, which is usually not a problem these days. And you need a quiet place in which to conduct your therapy sessions.

So during the Skype Therapy sessions I will teach you how to work with your emotions using mindfulness. Now you may have heard about mindfulness. It's a very very interesting area. It's been around many hundreds of years, of course, and traces back to the teachings of the Buddha. But now we are discovering how to apply mindfulness in overcoming emotional suffering. And it works extremely well when working with anxiety or depression or for managing the painful and compulsive emotions that are associated with an addiction.

I have also developed a number of mindfulness-based techniques for working with PTSD that are proving very successful indeed. These include techniques like mindfulness-based imagery reprocessing, where you can effectively decrease the intensity of a flashback memory by changing the way that you see that scene in the mind.

So working with imagery is actually a very important part of working with emotions in general. Even anxiety and depression has associated internal imagery and this is why we often feel overwhelmed when we are struggling with chronic anxiety or depression. Literally, that's because the emotion is very large and we see it above us in our internal imagery. That's why we use that term, "feeling overwhelmed.".

Another part of Mindfulness Therapy has to do with trying to change your relationship to your emotions and thoughts as well. This is very important because our habit is to become completely lost in our emotions or thoughts. We become identified with them and when you become identified with them then this leads to emotional suffering.


So if you'd like to learn more please email me and let's schedule is Skype Therapy session. Thank you.
