Online Internet Psychotherapy and Advising is becoming more popular than ever in the present hectic life. As a professional psychotherapist, I have observed a dramatic increase in the number of clients who prefer to conduct their remedy sessions in the safety of their own homes.
All say that they find online sessions using Skype or other videocam formats to be less intimidating and strangely counselling NSW, more relaxed and more personal. This is important therapeutically because this relaxed area helps clients make contact with their feelings and explore them at a subtle stage, which, of course, is definitely a delicate process requiring incredible sensitivity, stillness and presence. Sometimes the physical occurrence of the therapist can interrupt this process and this can be a muddiness for the consumer.
There is also a sense of self-empowerment associated with the online format, and the client tends to feel more in control of the process and is less inclined to take on the role of the helpless, broken person needing to be repaired by an authority figure.
Mindfulness Therapy, a form of Cognitive Therapy that focuses on the feelings behind thoughts and beliefs appears to be particularly well suited to the online format, partly because clients spend much of the time using their eyes closed, as they explore the subtle inner structure of their anxiety or depression, anger or traumatic memories.
Mindfulness Treatment is an extremely focused strategy and is quite different from traditional talking therapies, because the focus is on the process and the inner sensory structure of anxiety and other towns of emotional imbalance, rather than on the content of thoughts or the personal story. What is of primary interest is the emotional feeling energy that permeates mental poison and thinking, because it is this compulsive force that gives meaning and power to dysfunctional thinking.
Without this emotional charge, negative ideas, beliefs and memories have a tendency to lose their power and dissipate. We say that they lose their functional power and residency time, which means that they have less compulsive influence, less ability to dominate our minds, and we tend to spend less time proliferating and ruminating unable to start thinking.
All Mindfulness Treatment commences with learning and practicing the art of self-reflection during the day, learning to recognize our regular cognitive reactivity and mental reactivity. We begin to wake up as to what is heading on rather than being carried along by habit; we begin to become “conscious” and “awake” rather than working on auto-pilot.
