Better Help Faithful Counseling – Get your answer

When I was first approached…Better Help Faithful Counseling…. to perhaps team up with them on a youtube series among the important things that was actually important 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 understand my own views when when essential or appropriate to share them and I was granted that by a they essentially said you understand we trust you as a medical expert and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and talk about what you know and among the important 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 whatever you know I think it can be incredibly valuable for many people I have actually seen it myself dealing with people from a couple of months up to over a year and I seen how being able to message and also have video sessions with somebody is actually a it

practically enhances the the restorative experience in such a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals in person and I completely enjoy that and there are individuals that I see there that I would not think about seeing online either they would not be appropriate we wouldn’t have the ability to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it just would not feel comfy and which’s okay those 2 things can both hold true and I believe one of the things that I wish to start to have individuals think about is there’s a location for both online and offline therapy it is truly a matter of you know deciding what’s right for you however likewise what’s most proper for you with the help of a professional when I discuss particular therapy designs or techniques as being appropriate for you what I indicate by that is that it would be the very best approach for

the particular issue that you’re dealing with and I believe that one of the concerns that a great deal of individuals have is that online therapy is attempting to change offline therapy and I can inform you 100% that that’s not real I’ve had many discussions with the founder of where he has mentioned that his audience isn’t to take on traditional practices or put psychologists or licensed professionals out of business his mission is to offer mental health access to the people who aren’t going to enter the treatment office and I 100% support that mission and I believe it’s important and we have a problem with gain access to

to psychological healthcare in this nation and is one option as our other online business I was discussing previously that there are things that I personally believe that online treatment is better for or offline treatment is better for and I’ve really I’ve in fact spoken about this in other settings because it is something I feel quite passionate about and I need to say that my opinion has been popular by companies like in terms of hopefully how they how they work with individuals that provide for care so I simply wished to invest a number of minutes talking about my own is my own personal viewpoint about the things that are most suitable for offline versus online therapy so in my view I see online therapy as a wonderful location for people who are fighting with challenging life shifts for scenarios where they’re experiencing more stress than normal for situations where you know they have a very specific concern with anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is very structured can can benefit them and that treatment because it’s not as social as others is ideal for online therapy since it involves a lot of homework it involves worksheets it includes finding out specific abilities and methods so moderate milder conditions like moderate anxiety mild depression change conditions even PTSD as long as like the individual has gotten care at first in other places these are all things that can be resolved through online therapy you understand think about somebody who has a agoraphobia and possibly they connect to a counselor from their home due to the fact that they can’t leave their house and simply just to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where individuals are actually terrified of being caught and caught in a location where they might have a panic attack therefore essentially they start to restrict their activities and limit their activities till a lot of them can’t leave their home without truly feeling substantial distress so if somebody like that is at home and they can reach out through their computer and connect to a therapist that’s a great initial step is that going to treat them absolutely not due to the fact that agoraphobia to be successfully dealt with requirements that individual to be able to go outside and to resume normal activities and often that includes a therapist going to their home to help them with that procedure certainly online therapists are going to be able to do that however might they be the bridge that got that individual who’s afraid to leave their home from that preliminary encouraging technique to therapy where they can in fact 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 specific video and bringing these

things up is that I I wish to plainly communicate that anything that I share with you is going to be fully from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more importantly what I believe is as just 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 don’t believe is appropriate I will not show you that online therapy is the cure-all for whatever since I do not believe that and so you can always expect to hear my sincere opinion on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you found this video interesting and useful if you did please like it below and do not hesitate to subscribe to our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing a growing number of videos on a range of various mental health subjects and please connect if there’s something specific you would like us to cover or address in an upcoming video
