Better Help Address – Get your answer

When I was first approached…Better Help Address…. to perhaps team up with them on a youtube series one of the things that was truly essential to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I spoke about what what subjects I chose to provide and also you understand my own views when when required or appropriate to share them and I was granted that by a they generally said you know we trust you as a medical professional and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and talk about what you know and one of the things that I really wished to address is the reality that I’m not simply here to say that online treatment is the answer for whatever you know I think it can be extremely handy for many individuals I’ve seen it myself working with individuals from a few months approximately over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and likewise have video sessions with someone is really a it

nearly enriches the the therapeutic experience in a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals in person and I thoroughly delight in that and there are people that I see there that I would not think about seeing online either they would not be appropriate we wouldn’t be able to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it simply would not feel comfortable and and that’s okay those 2 things can both hold true and I think one of the important things that I want to begin to have individuals consider exists’s a location for both offline and online treatment it is truly a matter of you understand deciding what’s right for you but likewise what’s most suitable for you with the help of an expert when I speak about particular counseling designs or techniques as being appropriate for you what I indicate by that is that it would be the best approach for

the particular problem that you’re handling and I believe that one of the concerns that a great deal of individuals have is that online counseling is attempting to replace offline counseling and I can inform you 100% that that’s not real I have actually had lots of discussions with the founder of where he has mentioned that his audience isn’t to compete with physical practices or put psychologists or licensed specialists out of business his mission is to offer psychological health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter the treatment workplace and I 100% assistance that objective and I believe it is essential and we have a problem with gain access to

to mental healthcare in this nation and is one solution as our other online business I was discussing earlier that there are things that I personally believe that online therapy is better suited for or offline therapy is more appropriate for and I’ve in fact I’ve really spoken about this in other settings because it is something I feel pretty passionate about and I have to say that my viewpoint has actually been popular by companies like in terms of hopefully how they how they work with the people that present for care so I just wished to spend a couple of minutes discussing my own is my own individual opinion about the important things that are most appropriate for online versus offline treatment so in my view I see online treatment as a fantastic place for individuals who are having problem with difficult life shifts for circumstances where they’re experiencing more stress than normal for circumstances where you know they have a very specific concern with stress and anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is really structured can can benefit them which treatment since it’s not as social as others is ideal for online therapy due to the fact that it includes a lot of research it involves worksheets it involves finding out particular skills and strategies so moderate milder conditions like mild anxiety mild depression adjustment disorders even PTSD as long as like the person has actually received care at first in other places these are all things that can be dealt with through online therapy you know think about somebody who has a agoraphobia and maybe they reach out to a counselor from their house since they can’t leave their home and just simply to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where individuals are truly horrified of being trapped and trapped in a place where they may have a panic attack and so essentially they start to limit their activities and restrict their activities up until much of them can’t leave their house without actually feeling significant distress so if somebody like that is at house and they can connect through their computer and link to a counselor that’s a fantastic first step is that going to cure them never since agoraphobia to be successfully dealt with requirements that person to be able to go outside and to resume regular activities and sometimes that involves a therapist going to their house to help them with that procedure undoubtedly online counselors are going to have the ability to do that however could they be the bridge that got that individual who’s afraid to leave their home from that initial helpful method to therapy where they can actually have a much better life 100% and this is what the space that aims to fill with their services my indicate this to this particular video and bringing these

things up is that I I want to clearly interact that anything that I show you is going to be completely from where I stand as an expert psychologist and more importantly what I believe is as just a human being on this earth trying to do the best that I can and so I I will not inform you that something is appropriate that I do not believe is appropriate I won’t share with you that online therapy is the cure-all for whatever because I don’t think that and so you can constantly expect to hear my sincere opinion on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a licensed psychologist I hope you discovered this video intriguing and practical if you did please like it below and do not hesitate to register for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing a growing number of videos on a variety of various psychological health topics and please reach out if there’s something particular you would like us to attend to or cover in an approaching video
