Better Help Organization – Get your answer

When I was first approached…Better Help Organization…. to potentially work together with them on a youtube series among the important things that was truly 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 know my own views when when required or appropriate to share them and I was granted that by a they essentially 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 truly wished to address is the reality that I’m not just here to state that online therapy is the answer for whatever you understand I think it can be incredibly practical for lots of people I have actually seen it myself dealing with people from a couple of months approximately over a year and I seen how being able to message and also have video sessions with someone is actually a it

practically enhances the the restorative experience in a manner at the same time I have a private practice where I see people in person and I completely enjoy that and there are people that I see there that I wouldn’t consider seeing online either they wouldn’t be appropriate we wouldn’t have the ability to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it just wouldn’t feel comfy and which’s okay those 2 things can both hold true and I believe one of the things that I want to begin to have individuals consider 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 however likewise what’s most proper for you with the help of an expert when I discuss specific therapy designs or methods as being appropriate for you what I imply by that is that it would be the best approach for

the particular issue that you’re dealing with and I think that one of the concerns that a great deal of people have is that online therapy is trying to replace offline therapy and I can inform you 100% that that’s not real I have actually had many discussions with the founder of where he has actually pointed out that his audience isn’t to take on physical practices or put psychologists or licensed professionals out of business his mission is to provide mental health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter into the therapy office and I 100% assistance that objective and I think it’s important and we have an issue with gain access to

to psychological health care in this country and is one service as our other online business I was discussing earlier that there are things that I personally believe that online treatment is more appropriate for or offline treatment is better for and I’ve really I’ve really discussed this in other settings due to the fact that it is something I feel pretty enthusiastic about and I have to state that my opinion has actually been favored by business like in terms of ideally how they how they work with individuals that present for care so I simply wanted to invest a number of minutes speaking about my own is my own individual opinion about the important things that are most suitable for online versus offline therapy so in my view I see online treatment as a wonderful location for individuals who are dealing with hard life shifts for circumstances where they’re experiencing more tension than typical for situations where you understand they have an extremely precise issue with stress and anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is very structured can can benefit them which treatment because it’s not as interpersonal as others is perfect for online therapy due to the fact that it includes a lot of homework it involves worksheets it involves discovering specific skills and methods so moderate milder disorders like moderate anxiety mild depression adjustment conditions even PTSD as long as like the person has actually received care at first in other places these are all things that can be addressed through online therapy you know think of somebody who has a agoraphobia and maybe they connect to a counselor from their home because they can’t leave their home and just simply to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where people are truly frightened of being caught and caught in a place where they might have an anxiety attack and so essentially they start to limit their activities and limit their activities until a lot of them can’t leave their home without truly feeling significant distress so if someone like that is at house and they can connect through their computer system and connect to a therapist that’s a great primary step is that going to treat them absolutely not because agoraphobia to be effectively treated requirements that person to be able to go outside and to resume normal activities and sometimes that involves a therapist going to their house to help them with that process certainly online counselors are going to be able to do that but might they be the bridge that got that individual who hesitates to leave their home from that preliminary supportive technique to therapy where they can really have a better life 100% and this is what the gap that aims to fill with their services my indicate this to this particular video and bringing these

things up is that I I want to plainly communicate that anything that I show 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 trying to do the best that I can and so I I will not inform 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 everything due to the fact that I don’t believe that therefore you can always expect to hear my truthful viewpoint on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a licensed psychologist I hope you found this video practical and interesting if you did please like it listed below and feel free to register for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing a growing number of videos on a range of different psychological health topics and please reach out if there’s something particular you would like us to resolve or cover in an approaching video
