Better Is Best – Get your answer

When I was first approached…Better Is Best…. to possibly team up with them on a youtube series one of the things that was truly crucial to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I talked about what what topics I selected to provide and also you understand my own views when when necessary or appropriate to share them and I was given that by a they basically said you understand we trust you as a clinical professional and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and discuss what you understand and one of the things that I really wanted to address is the truth that I’m not just here to say that online treatment is the answer for whatever you know I think it can be incredibly valuable for lots of people I’ve seen it myself working with people from a couple of months approximately over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and likewise have video sessions with somebody is truly a it

nearly enhances the the restorative experience in a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see people in person and I completely take pleasure in that and there are individuals 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 just would not feel comfy and which’s all right those 2 things can both be true and I believe one of the important things that I want to begin to have individuals think about exists’s a location for both online and offline 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 certain counseling styles or methods as being appropriate for you what I imply by that is that it would be the best method for

the particular problem that you’re dealing with and I believe that a person of the issues that a lot of people have is that online counseling is attempting to replace offline therapy and I can inform you 100% that that’s not true I’ve had many discussions with the founder of where he has discussed that his audience isn’t to take on physical practices or put psychologists or licensed experts out of business his objective is to offer mental health access to the people who aren’t going to come into the treatment workplace and I 100% assistance that mission and I believe it is essential and we have a problem with access

to psychological health care in this nation and is one option as our other online companies I was mentioning earlier that there are things that I personally believe that online therapy is better for or offline treatment is better suited for and I’ve in fact I’ve really discussed this in other settings because it is something I feel pretty passionate about and I need to state that my opinion has actually been popular by business like in terms of ideally how they how they work with the people that provide for care so I just wanted to invest a couple of minutes talking about my own is my own personal opinion about the important things that are most proper for offline versus online therapy so in my view I see online therapy as a fantastic location for people who are battling with tough life shifts for circumstances where they’re experiencing more stress than normal for scenarios where you understand they have a really well-defined concern with stress and anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is very structured can can benefit them which therapy due to the fact that it’s not as social as others is best for online therapy because it includes a great deal of homework it includes worksheets it involves finding out particular abilities and techniques so moderate milder conditions like moderate anxiety mild depression change conditions even PTSD as long as like the individual has gotten care at first elsewhere these are all things that can be attended to through online therapy you know consider someone who has a agoraphobia and perhaps they reach out to a therapist from their home due to the fact that they can’t leave their house and simply simply to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where people are actually horrified of being trapped and trapped in a place where they may have an anxiety attack and so essentially they begin to restrict their activities and restrict their activities until many of them can’t leave their house without actually feeling significant distress so if somebody like that is at home and they can connect through their computer system and connect to a therapist that’s a terrific initial 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 regular activities and in some cases 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 could they be the bridge that got that individual who’s afraid to leave their home from that initial helpful technique to counseling 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 point to this to this specific video and bringing these

things up is that I I wish to plainly communicate that anything that I show you is going to be completely from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more notably 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 don’t think is appropriate I will not show you that online counseling is the cure-all for whatever since I don’t believe that and so you can constantly expect to hear my honest opinion on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you found this video interesting and useful if you did please like it below and do not hesitate to register for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing more and more videos on a variety of various psychological health topics and please connect if there’s something specific you would like us to attend to or cover in an approaching video
