Online Mindfulness Therapist over Skype for Overcoming Anxiety and Depression without drugs

Welcome! If you’re looking for an online therapist
to help you overcome anxiety or depression or addiction or any other common psychological
problem that responds well to online therapy then please consider the service that I offer. Visit my website, learn more about online
therapy via Skype. So online therapy is a great option if you
find it difficult to find a therapist in your neighborhoods or if you’re living abroad or
if you are traveling. It’s also a good way of getting good quality
psychotherapy without the stigma, without having to go and present yourself in a public
setting. Many people prefer the greater privacy offered
by online therapy. Being able to speak to a therapist in the
privacy of your own home is a significant factor for many people. Maybe you’re suffering from depression or
addiction. It’s difficult to bring those into a public
group setting or even to talk to a therapist in person. It’s much easier to do it over the Internet
through Skype. So I’ve been offering mindfulness-based therapy
over Skype for many years now and I’ve found it very effective. My clients really enjoy Mindfulness Therapy
and the online therapy format, and you can read many testimonies on my website. It’s a very good way of getting the help that
you need without going the medical route. So I don’t really advocate medications for
treating anxiety or depression because medication simply mask symptoms. They may provide a temporary relief, which
can have some benefits in certain situations, but it is really important that you understand
that medications are not going to treat the underlying cause of your anxiety or depression. That cause is emotional, it’s psychological
in nature. You have to heal those underlying emotions
if you really want to break free from chronic anxiety or depression, and the same goes for
addictions as well. So besides the chemical aspect of addiction
which often needs medical intervention, you have to ask yourself what is the underlying
emotional cause that caused me to indulge in an unskillful way with alcohol or drugs. There’s usually, if not always, an underlying
emotional cause that’s driving that addiction. It could be depression; it could be very low
self-esteem could be trauma. That’s very common. It’s a way of escaping painful emotions for
many people. That’s one of the major driving forces behind
addiction: trying to escape suffering. And it provides a temporary relief, Yes, but
as a long-term solution, No. It does not relieve the underlying emotional
pain. You have to address that emotional pain and
you have to help it heal. From my experience, there is nothing better
than mindfulness training and Mindfulness Therapy for healing emotional suffering. It’s a very focused approach, very practical. It is quite different than conventional counseling. It’s about looking at how you produce anxiety
or depression, right now. How does that work in the present moment? What is the nature of that habitual process? So we focus on two real main areas. One of which is looking at the patterns of
reactive thinking that feed anxiety and depression and other intense emotions. It could be guilt, it could be shame, it could
be a feeling of helplessness. Whatever it might be, there is always an associated
pattern of reactive thinking. Now in Mindfulness Therapy we teach it is
not the thoughts that create the emotion, the emotion precedes those thoughts, but the
thoughts have the effect of feeding the underlying emotions, rather like fuel feeds a fire. But the fuel cannot create more fire if there’s
no fire to begin with. Its just wood. So we need to work with reactive thoughts
because they are a very important fuel source for emotional suffering. And mindfulness is about really waking up
and seeing those reactive thoughts clearly, consciously in the present. It’s this aspect of waking up that is so important,
rather than being dragged along by habit, which is what happens so often, and that is
the real underlying problem with anxiety and depression. We just fall into that river of thoughts without
any choice or any real consciousness. So changing this unconscious aspect of emotional
suffering is a primary focus in Mindfulness Therapy, and I will teach you how to do this
in great detail. I will give you the tools for doing this so
that you can break free from these patterns of habitual reactive thinking. Another part of mindfulness therapy is developing
compassion. Compassion towards yourself. Now in mindfulness therapy that has a very
specific meaning. It means developing compassion towards those
emotions, themselves, seeing them almost as separate beings or objects within the mind. We often refer to them as being like children
and we are like a parent, we need to learn how to help those children heal because they
are suffering. So that’s a very important process of compassion
that we develop in mindfulness training and Mindfulness Therapy. Mindfulness is the combination of consciousness
and compassion. It must have both components to be called
mindfulness. It’s not just the same as awareness. Mindfulness is a very special kind of conscious
awareness and it has this compassionate quality. We approach our emotional pain with the intention
of trying to help the pain heal. So we do this in various ways. But one of which is establishing this very
compassionate and loving relationship between your True Self, which is the consciousness
itself, and the Little Self, which are the emotions and thoughts and memories and traumas
and beliefs and all of the content that makes up our mind. But it’s important to understand, and this
is a primary teaching in mindfulness psychology, we are not the content. You are not your thoughts. You are not your beliefs. You are not your emotions. You are not your perceptions. You are not your memories. These are objects. What you are in essence is the conscious awareness
itself, that state of being that can see thoughts, memories, emotions, and other objects. That part that can see those things and not
become identified with those content of mind, those mental objects, that is what we call
your True Self, and the whole movement of Mindfulness Therapy is to really help you
reestablish your identity as your True Self and to overcome the habit of becoming identified
with the content of mind, the Little Self. This is vital. You learn to become bigger than your thoughts
and emotions. Only then can you help the thoughts and emotions
heal. So you learn to become a parent to your thoughts
and emotions. You learn to take care of them and help them
heal. And this we call the True Self-Little Self
alliance. It is vital and that’s what we really focus
on developing during Mindfulness Therapy. So if you like the idea of working with an
online therapist, you like the convenience and a greater privacy offered by online therapy
and you like the idea of working with a Mindfulness Therapist like myself. I have been teaching Mindfulness Therapy for
many years now and I have written a book on the subject called “The Path of Mindfulness
Meditation” and I find it to be extremely effective, and people really enjoy this approach. It really gives you the tools to find a better
way of living, of overcoming anxiety and depression or addiction, of breaking free from these
very constraining and imprisoning aspects of the Little Self. It allows you to find who you really are and
to find the happiness and well being that is your true nature. So if you’d like to learn more about all this
then please contact me. Send me an email from my website. Let’s schedule a Skype Therapy session. Let’s find out how this can help you with
your particular needs. I’ve helped hundreds of people now and everyone
seems to benefit. Almost everyone has already tried conventional
talking therapy. They’ve tried medications and found them to
be completely ineffective most of the time. It can help you in the short term but it doesn’t
really get to the underlying problems. That’s the point here. Mindfulness Therapy does. It helps you really change things at the core
level. So if this interests you and you’d like to
do online therapy with me over Skype then please contact me. Thank you.
