Better Help Therapy – Get your answer

When I was first approached…Better Help Therapy…. to possibly team up with them on a youtube series among the things that was truly essential to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I spoke about what what subjects I selected to provide and likewise you understand my own views when when required or appropriate to share them and I was approved that by a they essentially said you know we trust you as a scientific professional and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and speak about what you know and among the things that I really wanted to address is the fact that I’m not simply here to say that online therapy is the answer for everything you understand I believe it can be exceptionally handy for lots of 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 likewise have video sessions with somebody is really a it

almost improves the the healing experience in a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see people face-to-face and I thoroughly take pleasure in that and there are people that I see there that I wouldn’t consider seeing online either they would not be appropriate we wouldn’t be able to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it just wouldn’t feel comfy and which’s all right those two things can both be true and I think among the important things that I wish to begin to have individuals think about exists’s a place for both offline and online treatment it is really a matter of you know choosing what’s right for you but also what’s most suitable for you with the help of a professional when I talk about 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 individuals have is that online counseling is attempting to replace offline therapy and I can inform you 100% that that’s not real I have actually had lots of conversations with the creator of where he has actually discussed that his audience isn’t to take on physical practices or put psychologists or licensed professionals out of business his objective is to provide psychological health access to the people who aren’t going to enter into the therapy office and I 100% assistance that objective and I believe it is necessary and we have an issue with gain access to

to mental healthcare in this country and is one solution as our other online business I was mentioning earlier that there are things that I personally believe that online therapy is better for or offline therapy is more appropriate for and I’ve actually I’ve in fact spoken about this in other settings because it is something I feel quite enthusiastic about and I need to state that my opinion has actually been favored by business like in terms of hopefully how they how they deal with the people that present for care so I just wanted to invest a couple of minutes talking about my own is my own individual viewpoint about the things that are most proper for offline versus online therapy so in my view I see online treatment as a wonderful place for individuals who are having problem with tough life shifts for scenarios where they’re experiencing more stress than regular for situations where you know they have a very clear-cut problem with anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is really structured can can benefit them and that therapy since it’s not as interpersonal as others is ideal for online therapy due to the fact that it includes a lot of homework it includes worksheets it involves discovering specific abilities and methods so mild milder conditions like mild stress and anxiety mild depression change conditions even PTSD as long as like the individual has received care initially elsewhere these are all things that can be attended to through online counseling you know think of someone who has a agoraphobia and possibly they connect to a therapist from their house because they can’t leave their home and just simply to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where individuals are really frightened of being trapped and caught in a place where they might have a panic attack and so basically they start to limit their activities and limit their activities till a lot of them can’t leave their house without really feeling substantial distress so if somebody like that is at house and they can reach out through their computer and connect to a therapist that’s a fantastic primary step is that going to cure them absolutely not since agoraphobia to be successfully treated needs that person to be able to go outdoors and to resume typical activities and often that involves a therapist going to their home to help them with that process obviously online therapists are going to have the ability to do that however might they be the bridge that got that person who’s afraid to leave their home from that preliminary encouraging approach to counseling where they can in fact have a better life 100% and this is what the space that intends to fill with their services my point to this to this specific 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 fully from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more notably what I think 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 don’t believe is appropriate I won’t show you that online counseling is the cure-all for everything due to the fact that I do not believe that therefore you can constantly expect to hear my truthful opinion on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a licensed psychologist I hope you found this video interesting and helpful if you did please like it below and feel free to register for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing more and more videos on a range of various psychological health subjects and please connect if there’s something particular you would like us to cover or deal with in an approaching video
