When I was first approached…Betterhelp Careers…. to perhaps work together with them on a youtube series among the things that was truly important to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I talked about what what topics I selected to present and likewise you know my own views when when required or appropriate to share them and I was approved that by a they basically stated you know we trust you as a scientific professional and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and discuss what you understand and among the things that I actually wanted to address is the truth that I’m not simply here to state that online therapy is the answer for everything you know I believe it can be exceptionally useful for lots of people I’ve seen it myself working with individuals 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 truly a it

almost enhances the the therapeutic experience in such a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals in person and I thoroughly delight in that and there are people that I see there that I would not think about seeing online either they would not be appropriate we would not have the ability to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it just wouldn’t feel comfortable and which’s fine those 2 things can both hold true and I believe among the things that I wish to start to have people consider exists’s a place for both online and offline treatment it is actually a matter of you understand choosing what’s right for you however likewise what’s most appropriate for you with the help of a professional when I speak about specific counseling styles or methods as being appropriate for you what I suggest by that is that it would be the very best approach for

the particular issue that you’re dealing with and I believe that one of the concerns that a lot of individuals have is that online counseling is attempting to replace offline counseling and I can inform you 100% that that’s not real I have actually had numerous conversations with the founder of where he has actually mentioned that his audience isn’t to take on traditional practices or put psychologists or certified professionals out of business his mission is to supply psychological health access to the people who aren’t going to enter into the therapy workplace and I 100% assistance that objective and I think it is necessary and we have an issue with access

to psychological health care in this country 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 suited for or offline therapy is better suited for and I’ve in fact I’ve in fact spoken about this in other settings since it is something I feel quite passionate about and I have to say that my viewpoint has actually been favored by companies like in terms of hopefully how they how they work with individuals that present for care so I just wanted to invest a couple of minutes speaking about my own is my own personal viewpoint about the important things that are most appropriate for offline versus online treatment so in my view I see online therapy as a wonderful location for individuals who are battling with difficult life shifts for situations where they’re experiencing more stress than regular for circumstances where you know they have a really specific issue 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 treatment since it’s not as social as others is best for online therapy since it includes a great deal of homework it involves worksheets it involves discovering specific skills and strategies so moderate milder disorders like moderate stress and anxiety mild depression change conditions even PTSD as long as like the individual has actually received care initially in other places these are all things that can be addressed through online counseling you know think of somebody who has a agoraphobia and perhaps they connect to a counselor from their home because they can’t leave their home and simply just to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where individuals are really horrified of being trapped and trapped in a place where they may have an anxiety attack and so basically they start to restrict their activities and restrict their activities up until much of them can’t leave their home without actually feeling significant distress so if someone like that is at house and they can reach out through their computer and connect to a therapist that’s a terrific primary step is that going to cure them never because agoraphobia to be successfully dealt with requirements that individual to be able to go outside and to resume regular activities and in some cases that involves a therapist going to their house to help them with that procedure clearly online therapists are going to have the ability to do that however could they be the bridge that got that individual who hesitates to leave their house from that preliminary encouraging technique to therapy where they can really 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 plainly interact that anything that I share with you is going to be completely from where I stand as an expert psychologist and more significantly what I think is as just 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 believe is appropriate I will not share with you that online therapy is the cure-all for whatever because I do not believe that therefore you can constantly 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 fascinating and handy 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 psychological health topics and please connect if there’s something specific you would like us to attend to or cover in an upcoming video
