Better Help Stock – Get your answer

When I was first approached…Better Help Stock…. to potentially collaborate with them on a youtube series among the things that was truly important to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I talked about what what subjects I selected to provide and likewise you understand my own views when when needed or appropriate to share them and I was approved that by a they essentially said you know we trust you as a scientific expert and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and speak about what you know and one of the important things that I truly wanted to address is the fact that I’m not simply here to say that online treatment is the answer for whatever you know I believe it can be extremely practical for lots of people I have actually seen it myself working with people from a few months up to over a year and I seen how being able to message and also have video sessions with someone is really a it

practically improves the the restorative experience in a manner at the same time I have a private practice where I see people face-to-face and I thoroughly enjoy that and there are people that I see there that I would not consider 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 simply would not feel comfy and which’s fine those 2 things can both hold true and I believe one of the important things that I want to begin to have individuals think of exists’s a place for both offline and online therapy it is really a matter of you understand choosing what’s right for you but likewise what’s most proper for you with the help of an expert when I talk about certain counseling designs or techniques as being appropriate for you what I imply 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 people have is that online counseling is attempting to replace offline counseling and I can tell you 100% that that’s not true I have actually had numerous conversations with the creator of where he has actually mentioned that his audience isn’t to compete with physical practices or put psychologists or licensed specialists out of business his mission is to supply psychological health access to the people who aren’t going to enter the treatment workplace and I 100% support that objective and I believe it is necessary and we have a problem with access

to psychological health care in this nation and is one solution as our other online business I was mentioning previously that there are things that I personally think that online therapy is better for or offline treatment is more appropriate for and I’ve really I’ve in fact spoken about this in other settings because it is something I feel pretty enthusiastic about and I have to say that my viewpoint has been well-received by business like in terms of ideally how they how they work 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 proper for online versus offline therapy so in my view I see online treatment as a fantastic place for people who are dealing with tough life transitions for situations where they’re experiencing more tension than typical for circumstances where you know they have a really specific issue with stress and anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is extremely structured can can benefit them which therapy since it’s not as social as others is best for online therapy since it includes a lot of research it involves worksheets it involves discovering particular skills and techniques so moderate milder conditions like mild stress and anxiety mild depression adjustment disorders even PTSD as long as like the person has actually gotten care at first elsewhere these are all things that can be attended to through online therapy you know think about someone who has a agoraphobia and perhaps they reach out to a counselor from their house due to the fact that they can’t leave their house and simply simply to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where individuals are truly frightened of being caught and caught in a place where they may have a panic attack therefore essentially they begin to restrict their activities and limit their activities until a lot of them can’t leave their house without truly feeling considerable distress so if somebody like that is at home and they can connect through their computer and link to a counselor that’s a great primary step is that going to cure them never since agoraphobia to be effectively dealt with needs that person to be able to go outdoors and to resume regular activities and often that includes a therapist going to their home to help them with that process undoubtedly online counselors 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 supportive technique to therapy 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 plainly interact that anything that I show you is going to be completely from where I stand as an expert psychologist and more significantly what I believe is as just a human being on this earth attempting to do the best that I can and so I I won’t tell you that something is appropriate that I don’t think is appropriate I won’t share with you that online counseling is the cure-all for whatever because I do not believe that therefore you can constantly expect to hear my sincere opinion 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 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 mental health subjects and please reach out if there’s something specific you would like us to deal with or cover in an upcoming video
