Online Therapy for Depression – Online Therapist for Depression via Skype


Welcome to the fascinating world of Mindfulness
Therapy. Mindfulness Therapy is one of the more modern forms of Cognitive Therapy, or
CBT. The main focus in Cognitive Therapy and Mindfulness Therapy is to change the underlying
patterns of habitual reactive thinking and reactive emotions that create our anxiety,
depression and stress. A very large part of mindfulness work is learning to recognize
these patterns, to seeing how they work, and in becoming aware of them, we begin to break
free of them quite naturally through that awareness. This is called the Recognition
Function of Mindfulness. But, mindfulness offers much more than this. It is also about
cultivating a positive relationship with our emotional suffering, with our anxiety, with
those places inside which hurt. Research has shown over and over again that if you resist
or avoid your emotional suffering it will simply feed and get stronger. But, if you
create an environment around that emotion based on acceptance, friendliness and compassion,
then that provides the right conditions in which those emotions will begin to change
and heal. This is a very large focus in Mindfulness Therapy, establishing the right kind of relationship
with your emotions that allows them to heal. So, that’s a little bit about Mindfulness
Therapy. Now, what about the online component of the service that I offer? Well, Cognitive
Therapy and Mindfulness Therapy are very much based on teaching and on practical work that
you do as a client, because this is your process of learning to work with your emotions. The
function of the therapist is simply to guide you in that objective, and this works very
well through the online format of Skype, and actually there are studies that show that
it actually enhances the process because it’s much less intimidating than seeing the therapist
in his or her office. So, if you are interested in scheduling a session of Online Mindfulness
Therapy, or, indeed, visiting me in my office in Louisville, Colorado, then please send
me an email and we will discuss how Mindfulness Therapy can help you with your specific anxiety,
depression or stress. Thank you! I look forward to hearing from you.
