Better Help Vs Therapy – Get your answer

When I was first approached…Better Help Vs Therapy…. to possibly collaborate with them on a youtube series among the things that was really essential to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I discussed what what subjects I chose to present and also you understand my own views when when required or appropriate to share them and I was approved that by a they basically said you understand we trust you as a medical professional and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and speak about what you know and among the important things that I truly wished to address is the fact that I’m not simply here to say that online treatment is the answer for whatever you understand I believe it can be exceptionally practical for lots of people I’ve seen it myself dealing with people from a few months approximately over a year and I seen how being able to message and likewise have video sessions with someone is really a it

nearly enriches 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 completely take pleasure in that and there are individuals that I see there that I would not think about 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 and that’s all right those 2 things can both be true and I think among the things that I wish to begin to have people think about exists’s a place for both offline and online treatment it is truly 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 counseling styles or approaches as being appropriate for you what I imply by that is that it would be the very best technique for

the particular problem that you’re dealing with and I believe that one of the issues that a lot of people have is that online therapy is trying to change offline counseling and I can tell you 100% that that’s not real I’ve had lots of discussions with the founder of where he has pointed out that his audience isn’t to take on traditional practices or put psychologists or licensed specialists out of business his objective is to provide mental health access to the people who aren’t going to enter the treatment office and I 100% assistance that mission and I think it is very important and we have an issue with access

to psychological healthcare in this nation and is one option as our other online business I was mentioning previously that there are things that I personally think that online treatment is better for or offline treatment is better for and I’ve in fact I’ve actually discussed this in other settings due to the fact that it is something I feel pretty enthusiastic about and I have to say that my opinion has actually been favored by business like in regards to hopefully how they how they work with the people that present for care so I simply wanted to spend a couple of minutes talking about my own is my own personal opinion about the important things that are most suitable for offline versus online therapy so in my view I see online therapy as a wonderful place for individuals who are struggling with challenging life transitions for situations where they’re experiencing more stress than regular for situations where you know they have an extremely clear-cut concern with stress and anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is very structured can can benefit them which treatment due to the fact that it’s not as social as others is perfect for online counseling due to the fact that it involves a lot of research it includes worksheets it includes finding out particular skills and methods so moderate milder disorders like moderate stress and anxiety mild depression adjustment disorders even PTSD as long as like the individual has received care at first elsewhere these are all things that can be addressed through online therapy you understand consider someone who has a agoraphobia and perhaps they reach out to a therapist from their house because they can’t leave their home and simply just to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where individuals are really terrified of being trapped and trapped in a place where they may have an anxiety attack and so basically they begin to restrict their activities and restrict their activities till many of them can’t leave their home without actually feeling considerable distress so if somebody like that is at house and they can connect through their computer system and link to a counselor that’s a great initial step is that going to treat them never since agoraphobia to be successfully treated requirements that individual to be able to go outdoors and to resume normal activities and often that involves a therapist going to their home to help them with that process undoubtedly online counselors are going to have the ability to do that however might they be the bridge that got that person who hesitates to leave their home from that initial helpful method to counseling where they can actually have a better life 100% and this is what the space that intends to fill with their services my point to this to this particular video and bringing these

things up is that I I want to clearly communicate that anything that I show you is going to be totally from where I stand as a professional 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 will not tell you that something is appropriate that I do not think 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 anticipate to hear my truthful opinion on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you discovered this video useful and intriguing if you did please like it below and feel free to register for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing increasingly more videos on a variety of different psychological health topics and please connect if there’s something particular you would like us to cover or deal with in an approaching video
