When I was first approached…Better Help Health Insurance…. to perhaps team up with them on a youtube series among 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 likewise you understand my own views when when essential or appropriate to share them and I was given that by a they generally stated you know we trust you as a clinical expert and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and speak about what you understand and among the things that I truly wished to address is the fact that I’m not just here to state that online therapy is the answer for whatever you know I believe it can be incredibly handy for many people I have actually seen it myself dealing with people from a couple of months as much as over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and likewise have video sessions with somebody is really a it

practically enhances the the healing experience in a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see people in person 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 simply would not feel comfortable and which’s fine those 2 things can both be true and I believe one of the things that I want to begin to have people consider is there’s a place for both online and offline treatment it is actually a matter of you know choosing what’s right for you however likewise what’s most suitable for you with the help of a professional when I speak about specific therapy designs or techniques as being appropriate for you what I mean by that is that it would be the very best technique 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 attempting to change offline counseling and I can tell you 100% that that’s not real I have actually had many conversations with the creator of where he has mentioned that his audience isn’t to compete with physical practices or put psychologists or certified 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 essential and we have an issue with access

to mental health care in this nation and is one service 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 treatment is better for and I’ve really I’ve in fact spoken about this in other settings due to the fact that it is something I feel quite enthusiastic about and I have to state that my viewpoint has been favored by business like in regards to ideally how they how they work with individuals that present for care so I just 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 treatment so in my view I see online treatment as a fantastic location for individuals who are dealing with difficult life transitions for scenarios where they’re experiencing more tension than normal for situations where you understand they have a really well-defined concern with stress and anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is very structured can can benefit them and that treatment because it’s not as social as others is ideal for online therapy because it includes a lot of research it involves worksheets it includes learning specific abilities and methods so moderate milder conditions like moderate anxiety mild depression modification disorders 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 someone who has a agoraphobia and perhaps they connect to a therapist from their house because they can’t leave their home and just simply to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where people are actually terrified of being trapped and trapped in a location where they may have a panic attack and so basically they begin to restrict their activities and restrict their activities up until many of them can’t leave their house without truly feeling considerable distress so if someone like that is at house and they can connect through their computer and connect to a therapist that’s an excellent initial step is that going to treat them absolutely not due to the fact that agoraphobia to be effectively treated requirements that individual to be able to go outside and to resume regular activities and in some cases that includes a therapist going to their house to help them with that process clearly online therapists are going to be able to do that however could they be the bridge that got that person who’s afraid to leave their house from that preliminary encouraging approach to counseling where they can really have a much better life 100% and this is what the space that intends 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 share with you is going to be completely from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more significantly what I believe 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 think is appropriate I won’t share with you that online therapy is the cure-all for everything because I do not believe that therefore you can always expect to hear my honest opinion on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a licensed psychologist I hope you found this video intriguing and handy if you did please like it below and do not hesitate to sign up for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing more and 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 resolve in an upcoming video
