Better Help Employment – Get your answer

When I was first approached…Better Help Employment…. to possibly work together with them on a youtube series one of the things that was really crucial to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I talked about what what subjects I chose to provide and also you know my own views when when required or appropriate to share them and I was approved that by a they basically stated you understand we trust you as a scientific expert and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and discuss what you understand and one of the things that I actually wished to address is the truth that I’m not just here to state that online therapy is the answer for everything you understand I think it can be extremely useful for lots of people I’ve seen it myself working with people from a couple of months up to over a year and I seen how being able to message and likewise have video sessions with somebody is really a it

almost enhances the the restorative experience in a manner at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals in person and I completely take pleasure in that and there are people that I see there that I wouldn’t think about seeing online either they wouldn’t be appropriate we would not be able to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it just would not feel comfy and and that’s fine those two things can both be true and I believe one of the important things that I wish to start to have people think about is there’s a place for both online and offline therapy it is actually a matter of you understand deciding what’s right for you however also what’s most suitable for you with the help of a professional when I speak about certain counseling designs or approaches as being appropriate for you what I suggest by that is that it would be the best technique for

the particular issue that you’re handling and I believe that one of the issues that a lot of individuals have is that online therapy is trying to change offline therapy and I can tell you 100% that that’s not real I have actually had numerous conversations with the founder of where he has pointed out that his audience isn’t to compete with brick and mortar practices or put psychologists or certified specialists out of business his mission is to offer mental health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter the therapy workplace and I 100% assistance that mission and I believe it is very important and we have a problem with access

to mental health care in this nation and is one option as our other online companies I was pointing out previously that there are things that I personally believe that online treatment is more appropriate for or offline treatment is better for and I’ve in fact I’ve really spoken about this in other settings due to the fact that it is something I feel quite enthusiastic about and I need to say that my viewpoint has been popular by companies like in regards to ideally how they how they deal with individuals that provide for care so I simply wanted to invest a couple of minutes talking about my own is my own individual viewpoint about the important things that are most appropriate for offline versus online treatment so in my view I see online treatment as a terrific location for individuals who are struggling with challenging life shifts for scenarios where they’re experiencing more tension than typical for scenarios where you understand they have a very well-defined issue with stress and anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is very structured can can benefit them which treatment because it’s not as interpersonal as others is ideal for online counseling due to the fact that it involves a lot of homework it involves worksheets it involves learning particular abilities and methods so mild milder disorders like moderate anxiety mild depression change conditions even PTSD as long as like the individual has received care initially in other places these are all things that can be dealt with through online counseling you know think about somebody who has a agoraphobia and maybe they connect to a therapist from their house due to the fact that they can’t leave their home and just just to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where individuals are really horrified of being caught and trapped in a place where they may have an anxiety attack and so essentially they begin to restrict their activities and restrict their activities till a lot of them can’t leave their home without truly feeling considerable distress so if somebody like that is at house and they can reach out through their computer system and connect to a therapist that’s a fantastic first step is that going to cure them never due to the fact that agoraphobia to be effectively dealt with needs that person to be able to go outdoors and to resume regular activities and sometimes that involves a therapist going to their house to help them with that procedure clearly online counselors are going to have the ability to do that however might they be the bridge that got that person who hesitates to leave their home from that preliminary encouraging technique to counseling where they can actually have a much better life 100% and this is what the space that aims to fill with their services my point to this to this particular video and bringing these

things up is that I I want to clearly communicate that anything that I show you is going to be totally from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more significantly what I think is as simply a human being on this earth attempting to do the very best that I can therefore I I won’t tell you that something is appropriate that I do not believe is appropriate I will not show you that online counseling is the cure-all for whatever since I don’t think that therefore you can constantly expect to hear my honest viewpoint on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you found this video practical and intriguing if you did please like it listed below and do not hesitate to sign up for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing increasingly more videos on a range of various psychological health topics and please connect if there’s something specific you would like us to cover or address in an approaching video
