When I was first approached…Better Help Eating Disorder…. to perhaps team up with them on a youtube series among the important things that was truly essential to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I talked about what what topics I chose to present and likewise you know my own views when when necessary or appropriate to share them and I was granted that by a they essentially stated you know we trust you as a medical professional and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and speak about what you understand and one of the important things that I actually wanted to address is the truth that I’m not simply here to say that online treatment is the answer for whatever you know I believe it can be exceptionally handy for lots of people I’ve seen it myself dealing with people from a few months approximately over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and also have video sessions with somebody is actually a it

nearly enhances the the therapeutic experience in a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals face-to-face and I thoroughly delight in that and there are individuals that I see there that I wouldn’t consider seeing online either they wouldn’t be appropriate we wouldn’t be able to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it just wouldn’t feel comfy and which’s okay those two things can both be true and I think one of the important things that I wish to start to have individuals think of is there’s a location for both offline and online treatment it is actually a matter of you understand choosing what’s right for you but likewise what’s most proper for you with the help of a professional when I discuss specific counseling styles or approaches as being appropriate for you what I suggest by that is that it would be the best approach for

the particular issue that you’re handling and I believe that a person of the issues that a great deal of individuals have is that online therapy is attempting to replace offline therapy and I can inform you 100% that that’s not real I have actually had many discussions with the creator of where he has mentioned that his audience isn’t to compete with brick and mortar practices or put psychologists or certified experts out of business his objective is to provide psychological health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter the therapy workplace and I 100% assistance that mission and I believe it is essential and we have an issue with access

to psychological healthcare in this nation and is one solution as our other online companies I was discussing previously that there are things that I personally think that online treatment is more appropriate for or offline therapy is better suited for and I’ve actually I’ve in fact discussed this in other settings due to the fact that it is something I feel quite passionate about and I have to say that my viewpoint has been well-received by companies like in regards to hopefully how they how they deal with the people that provide for care so I just wished to spend a number of minutes discussing my own is my own individual viewpoint about the things that are most appropriate for offline versus online therapy so in my view I see online treatment as a fantastic location for people who are battling with tough life transitions for scenarios where they’re experiencing more tension than normal for scenarios where you know they have a really clear-cut problem with anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is really structured can can benefit them which therapy due to the fact that it’s not as interpersonal as others is perfect for online therapy due to the fact that it involves a lot of homework it involves worksheets it involves finding out particular skills and strategies so moderate milder conditions like moderate anxiety mild depression modification conditions even PTSD as long as like the individual has actually received care initially in other places these are all things that can be resolved through online counseling you understand consider somebody who has a agoraphobia and possibly they connect to a counselor from their home since they can’t leave their home and just simply to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where individuals are really horrified of being trapped and trapped in a location where they might have a panic attack and so basically they begin to limit their activities and limit their activities until a number of them can’t leave their home without really feeling significant distress so if someone like that is at home and they can reach out through their computer system and connect to a therapist that’s a fantastic first step is that going to treat them never because agoraphobia to be successfully treated requirements that individual to be able to go outdoors and to resume regular activities and in some cases that includes a therapist going to their home to help them with that process obviously online counselors are going to have the ability to do that but might they be the bridge that got that individual who hesitates to leave their home from that preliminary encouraging approach to therapy where they can in fact have a much better life 100% and this is what the gap that intends to fill with their services my point to this to this specific video and bringing these

things up is that I I wish to plainly 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 think is as simply a human being on this earth trying to do the very best that I can and so I I will not tell you that something is appropriate that I do not believe is appropriate I won’t show you that online therapy is the cure-all for everything because I do not think that and so you can constantly anticipate to hear my honest opinion on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you discovered this video practical and fascinating if you did please like it below and feel free to sign up for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing increasingly more videos on a range of different mental health subjects and please reach out if there’s something specific you would like us to cover or resolve in an upcoming video
