When I was first approached…Better Help Financial Aid…. to potentially collaborate with them on a youtube series one of the important things that was really crucial to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I discussed what what topics I chose to provide and likewise you understand my own views when when essential or appropriate to share them and I was given that by a they basically said you know we trust you as a scientific professional and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and talk about what you understand and one of the things that I actually wanted to address is the reality that I’m not just here to say that online treatment is the answer for everything you understand I think it can be exceptionally valuable for many people I’ve seen it myself dealing with individuals from a couple of months approximately over a year and I seen how being able to message and also have video sessions with somebody is really a it

practically 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 delight in that and there are people that I see there that I wouldn’t consider seeing online either they wouldn’t be appropriate we would not have the ability to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it simply wouldn’t feel comfortable and and that’s alright those 2 things can both be true and I think one of the things that I wish to start to have individuals think about is there’s a location for both offline and online therapy it is actually a matter of you know deciding what’s right for you however likewise what’s most proper for you with the help of an expert when I talk about specific counseling designs or techniques as being appropriate for you what I suggest 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 people have is that online counseling is trying to replace offline therapy and I can inform you 100% that that’s not real I’ve had lots of conversations with the creator of where he has discussed that his audience isn’t to take on physical practices or put psychologists or licensed experts out of business his mission is to supply psychological health access to the people who aren’t going to enter the therapy office and I 100% support that objective and I believe it is very important and we have a problem with gain access to

to mental healthcare in this nation and is one solution as our other online companies I was mentioning previously that there are things that I personally think that online therapy is better for or offline treatment is better suited for and I’ve in fact I’ve in fact spoken about this in other settings since it is something I feel quite enthusiastic about and I need to say that my opinion has actually been well-received by companies like in terms of hopefully how they how they deal with individuals that provide for care so I just wished to spend a couple of minutes talking about my own is my own individual opinion about the things that are most suitable for online versus offline treatment so in my view I see online treatment as a terrific place for people who are having problem with challenging life transitions for scenarios where they’re experiencing more tension than normal for scenarios where you understand they have a very specific issue with anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is really structured can can benefit them and that treatment since it’s not as social as others is perfect for online counseling due to the fact that it includes a great deal of homework it includes worksheets it involves learning particular abilities and strategies so moderate milder disorders like moderate stress and anxiety mild depression adjustment conditions even PTSD as long as like the individual has actually gotten care at first in other places these are all things that can be addressed through online counseling you know consider someone who has a agoraphobia and possibly they reach out to a therapist from their home due to the fact that they can’t leave their house and just just to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where individuals are truly terrified of being caught and caught in a place where they might have a panic attack therefore basically they begin to restrict their activities and restrict their activities until many of them can’t leave their house without actually feeling considerable distress so if somebody like that is at house and they can connect through their computer and connect to a counselor that’s a fantastic primary step is that going to cure them absolutely not because agoraphobia to be effectively dealt with requirements that individual 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 undoubtedly online therapists are going to have the ability to do that however might they be the bridge that got that individual who’s afraid to leave their home from that initial supportive method to counseling where they can actually have a much better life 100% and this is what the space that intends to fill with their services my indicate this to this specific video and bringing these

things up is that I I wish to plainly communicate that anything that I show you is going to be completely from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more notably what I believe is as simply a human being on this earth attempting to do the best that I can and so I I will not inform you that something is appropriate that I don’t think is appropriate I will not show you that online therapy is the cure-all for everything due to the fact that I don’t think that and so you can always expect 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 valuable and intriguing if you did please like it listed below and feel free to sign up for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing more and more videos on a variety of different mental health topics and please connect if there’s something particular you would like us to attend to or cover in an upcoming video
