Betterhelp Customer Service – Get your answer

When I was first approached…Betterhelp Customer Service…. to possibly work together with them on a youtube series among the important things that was truly 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 given that by a they essentially said you understand we trust you as a clinical professional and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and speak about what you understand and among the important things that I actually wanted to address is the fact that I’m not simply here to say that online treatment is the answer for everything you understand I believe it can be extremely valuable for many people I have actually seen it myself working with people from a few months approximately over a year and I seen how being able to message and also have video sessions with somebody is really a it

practically enriches the the healing experience in a manner at the same time I have a private practice where I see people face-to-face and I completely delight in that and there are people that I see there that I would not 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 wouldn’t feel comfortable and and that’s all right those 2 things can both hold true and I believe among the important things that I wish to start to have people think about is there’s a place for both offline and online therapy it is really 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 speak about particular counseling designs or methods as being appropriate for you what I mean by that is that it would be the very best technique for

the particular problem that you’re handling and I believe that one of the concerns that a great deal of people have is that online therapy 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 pointed out that his audience isn’t to take on physical practices or put psychologists or licensed professionals out of business his objective is to provide psychological health access to individuals who aren’t going to come into the therapy workplace and I 100% support that mission and I think it is very important and we have a problem with access

to psychological health care in this nation and is one solution as our other online business I was mentioning previously that there are things that I personally believe that online therapy is more appropriate for or offline therapy is more appropriate for and I’ve really I’ve actually spoken about this in other settings since it is something I feel quite 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 the people that present for care so I just wanted to spend a number of minutes discussing my own is my own individual viewpoint about the things that are most suitable for offline versus online treatment so in my view I see online treatment as a terrific place for individuals who are dealing with challenging life shifts for situations where they’re experiencing more tension than normal for scenarios where you understand they have a really precise problem with anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is really structured can can benefit them which treatment because it’s not as interpersonal as others is perfect for online therapy since it involves a great deal of research it involves worksheets it involves discovering particular skills and methods so mild milder disorders like moderate anxiety mild depression modification disorders even PTSD as long as like the person has received care initially somewhere else these are all things that can be dealt with through online counseling you understand think about someone who has a agoraphobia and perhaps they reach out to a counselor from their house due to the fact that they can’t leave their house and just simply to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where people are truly frightened of being caught and trapped in a place where they may have a panic attack and so essentially they start to restrict their activities and limit their activities up until much of them can’t leave their house without actually feeling substantial distress so if somebody like that is at house and they can reach out through their computer and link to a therapist that’s an excellent primary step is that going to cure them never since agoraphobia to be effectively treated needs that individual to be able to go outside and to resume typical activities and in some cases that includes a therapist going to their home to help them with that procedure obviously online counselors are going to have the ability to do that however might they be the bridge that got that individual who hesitates to leave their house from that preliminary helpful approach to counseling where they can in fact have a 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 want to plainly interact that anything that I show you is going to be totally from where I stand as an expert psychologist and more importantly what I think is as just a human being on this earth trying to do the best that I can therefore I I won’t tell you that something is appropriate that I don’t think is appropriate I won’t show you that online counseling is the cure-all for everything since I do not believe that and so you can constantly expect to hear my honest viewpoint on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you found this video valuable and fascinating if you did please like it listed below and do not hesitate to subscribe to our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing more and more videos on a variety of different psychological health subjects and please connect if there’s something particular you would like us to cover or attend to in an approaching video
