Mindfulness-based Addiction Counseling via Skype

Welcome My name is Peter Strong and I specialize in online Mindfulness Therapy for the treatment of anxiety, depression and also addictions

If you're interested in mindfulness-based treatment for your addiction then I invite you to go to my website and learn more about the services that I offer online and then contact me and we can schedule a Skype Therapy session at a time that works for you So in the mindfulness approach to treating addictions we focus very much on working with the underlying emotions that feed the addiction, and we do this by working at two levels of emotional reactivity The first is working with the compulsive impulses themselves The addictive impulses that drive you to take that extra additional drink, or or any other form of addiction These impulses can be very strong and very difficult to resist by willpower

Mindfulness offers a way of working with them, of basically decreasing the intensity of those emotional impulses The second level that we must address in any form of treatment for addiction is working with the underlying core emotions such as depression or stress issues, problems with managing stress, or problems with managing anger, or very low self-esteem, or other emotional problems that are driving the impulse to to overindulge Whether that is in alcohol or other substance abuse or whether it's a food addiction or any other form of addiction It could be work addiction and so on These addictions are always being driven by an underlying emotional cause, and Mindfulness Therapy gives you a way of working with these underlying unresolved emotions that are fueling your addiction

The key to Mindfulness Therapy that I will teach you during these online counseling sessions, is to change the relationship that you have with your emotions, whether those are the compulsive impulses or whether those are the underlying core emotions you have, to change your relationship to them so that you can essentially sit with those emotions without becoming overwhelmed by them, without becoming controlled by those emotions So this is what we call developing equanimity or independence in relationship to your emotions, a very, very central part of mindfulness training The second part that helps greatly in resolving these emotions so that they lose their power over you is working on establishing a friendly and compassionate relationship to those very emotions themselves So most people become easily overwhelmed with reactivity to addictive emotions and the core emotions underneath They react with aversion, they react with avoidance, and other forms of reactivity that simply fuel the emotion, itself

We have to change our relationship to be able to sit with those emotions with a friendly compassionate relationship This creates the right conditions in which those emotions will begin to heal themselves There are other aspects of Mindfulness Therapy that I will teach you, such as working with the imagery of the emotions This is a very interesting area that has proven immensely effective, working with the actual mechanics of the motion itself So if you would like to learn more, please go to my website and if you'd like to schedule a trial online therapy session with me to help you work with your addiction, then please send me an email and let's schedule a Skype Therapy session at a time that works for you

Thank you
