When I was first approached…Betterhelp Affiliate…. to perhaps team up with them on a youtube series among the important things that was truly crucial to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I discussed what what topics I selected to present and likewise you know my own views when when essential or appropriate to share them and I was granted that by a they generally stated you know we trust you as a clinical professional and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and talk about what you understand and one of the important things that I really wanted to address is the truth that I’m not just here to state that online treatment is the answer for whatever you understand I think it can be exceptionally useful for lots of people I have actually seen it myself working with individuals from a few months approximately over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and also have video sessions with someone is actually a it

nearly enhances the the restorative experience in such a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see people in person and I thoroughly delight in that and there are individuals that I see there that I wouldn’t think about seeing online either they wouldn’t be appropriate we would not have the ability to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it simply would not feel comfy and and that’s all right those 2 things can both be true and I think among the important things that I wish to begin to have people think about exists’s a location for both online and offline therapy it is actually a matter of you understand choosing what’s right for you but also what’s most appropriate for you with the help of a professional when I discuss specific counseling designs or methods as being appropriate for you what I indicate by that is that it would be the very best method for

the particular problem that you’re handling and I think that a person of the concerns that a great deal of individuals have is that online therapy is attempting to change offline counseling and I can inform you 100% that that’s not real I have actually had many conversations with the founder of where he has pointed out that his audience isn’t to take on traditional practices or put psychologists or licensed professionals out of business his objective is to offer psychological health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter the treatment workplace and I 100% assistance that objective and I believe it’s important and we have a problem with gain access to

to mental health care in this country and is one option as our other online business I was discussing earlier that there are things that I personally think that online treatment is better suited for or offline therapy is better for and I’ve actually I’ve actually discussed this in other settings because it is something I feel pretty enthusiastic about and I need to state that my opinion has actually been well-received by companies like in regards to hopefully how they how they deal with individuals that present for care so I just wanted to invest a number of minutes discussing my own is my own individual opinion about the important things that are most appropriate for offline versus online treatment so in my view I see online treatment as a fantastic location for individuals who are struggling with difficult life shifts for scenarios where they’re experiencing more stress than typical for situations where you understand they have an extremely specific concern with anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is really structured can can benefit them which therapy because it’s not as social as others is best for online therapy since it includes a lot of research it involves worksheets it includes learning specific abilities and techniques so moderate milder disorders like mild anxiety mild depression modification conditions even PTSD as long as like the person has received care at first elsewhere these are all things that can be addressed through online therapy you know think of someone who has a agoraphobia and perhaps they connect to a therapist from their house because they can’t leave their home and simply just to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where people are actually horrified of being trapped and trapped in a place where they might have a panic attack and so basically they begin to limit their activities and limit their activities up until a number of them can’t leave their house without really feeling considerable distress so if someone like that is at house and they can reach out through their computer and connect to a counselor that’s a great first step is that going to treat them absolutely not because agoraphobia to be effectively treated requirements that individual to be able to go outdoors and to resume normal activities and often that involves a therapist going to their house to help them with that process clearly online therapists are going to be able to do that but could they be the bridge that got that individual who’s afraid to leave their home from that initial supportive 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 indicate this to this particular video and bringing these

things up is that I I wish to plainly communicate that anything that I share with 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 tell you that something is appropriate that I do not believe is appropriate I won’t show you that online therapy is the cure-all for everything since I don’t think that and so you can always expect to hear my honest opinion on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a licensed psychologist I hope you found this video valuable and interesting if you did please like it listed 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 different mental health subjects and please connect if there’s something particular you would like us to cover or deal with in an upcoming video
