Better Help You – Get your answer

When I was first approached…Better Help You…. to potentially team up with them on a youtube series one of the important things that was truly crucial to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I spoke about what what topics I selected to present and also you know my own views when when essential or appropriate to share them and I was granted that by a they basically said you understand we trust you as a clinical professional and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and talk about what you know and one of the important things that I actually wanted to address is the truth that I’m not just here to state that online treatment is the answer for everything you understand I think it can be extremely useful for many individuals I have actually seen it myself dealing with individuals from a few months up to over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and also have video sessions with someone is truly a it

almost improves the the restorative experience in a manner at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals face-to-face and I thoroughly take pleasure in that and there are individuals that I see there that I wouldn’t 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 just would not feel comfy and which’s fine those two things can both hold true and I believe among the important things that I want to start to have people think of exists’s a location for both offline and online treatment it is really a matter of you understand choosing what’s right for you however also what’s most proper for you with the help of an expert when I speak about particular therapy styles or techniques as being appropriate for you what I indicate by that is that it would be the very best approach for

the particular problem that you’re dealing with and I believe that a person of the issues that a great deal of individuals have is that online therapy is trying to replace offline therapy and I can tell you 100% that that’s not true I have actually had numerous conversations with the creator of where he has pointed out that his audience isn’t to take on physical practices or put psychologists or licensed specialists out of business his objective is to offer mental health access to individuals who aren’t going to come into the treatment office and I 100% support that objective and I think it is necessary and we have an issue with gain access to

to psychological healthcare in this nation and is one option as our other online business I was pointing out previously that there are things that I personally think that online treatment is better suited for or offline therapy is more appropriate for and I’ve really I’ve really spoken about this in other settings since it is something I feel pretty passionate about and I need to say that my opinion has been favored by companies like in regards to hopefully how they how they work with individuals that present for care so I simply wished to invest a number of minutes talking about my own is my own individual opinion about the things that are most suitable for online versus offline therapy so in my view I see online therapy as a fantastic location for people who are dealing with tough life shifts for situations where they’re experiencing more tension than typical for circumstances where you understand they have an extremely clear-cut problem 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 ideal for online counseling due to the fact that it involves a lot of research it involves worksheets it involves learning specific abilities and techniques so mild milder conditions like moderate anxiety mild depression change disorders even PTSD as long as like the person has received care at first elsewhere these are all things that can be dealt with through online counseling you understand think of someone who has a agoraphobia and maybe they reach out to a counselor from their home because they can’t leave their house and just simply to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where people are truly terrified of being caught and trapped in a place where they may have an anxiety attack therefore essentially they start to limit their activities and limit their activities up until much of them can’t leave their house without really feeling substantial distress so if someone like that is at home and they can reach out through their computer and link to a therapist that’s an excellent first step is that going to cure them never due to the fact that agoraphobia to be effectively dealt with requirements that person to be able to go outdoors and to resume normal activities and sometimes that involves a therapist going to their home to help them with that procedure obviously online therapists are going to have the ability to do that but could they be the bridge that got that person who hesitates to leave their home from that initial helpful method to therapy where they can in fact have a much better life 100% and this is what the space that aims to fill with their services my indicate this to this specific video and bringing these

things up is that I I wish to clearly interact that anything that I share with you is going to be completely from where I stand as an expert psychologist and more importantly what I believe is as simply a human being on this earth trying 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 show you that online therapy is the cure-all for everything because I don’t think that and so you can always anticipate to hear my truthful opinion on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a licensed psychologist I hope you discovered this video valuable and interesting if you did please like it below and do not hesitate 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 subjects and please connect if there’s something specific you would like us to resolve or cover in an approaching video
