When I was first approached…Betterhelp Data Mining…. to potentially work together with them on a youtube series one of the important things that was really crucial to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I talked about what what subjects I selected to provide and likewise you know my own views when when needed or appropriate to share them and I was granted that by a they essentially stated you know we trust you as a clinical professional and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and discuss what you know and one of the important things that I actually wished to address is the reality that I’m not just here to state that online therapy is the answer for everything you know I believe it can be exceptionally helpful for many people I’ve seen it myself dealing 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 truly a it

almost enhances the the healing experience in such a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals face-to-face and I thoroughly delight in that and there are people that I see there that I wouldn’t think about seeing online either they would not be appropriate we would not be able to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it just would not feel comfortable and and that’s alright those 2 things can both hold true and I believe one of the important things that I want to start to have individuals consider is there’s a place for both offline and online therapy it is truly a matter of you understand deciding what’s right for you but likewise what’s most appropriate for you with the help of an expert when I discuss certain counseling styles or approaches as being appropriate for you what I imply by that is that it would be the very best method for

the particular issue that you’re handling and I think that one of the concerns that a great deal of people have is that online counseling is trying to replace offline therapy and I can inform you 100% that that’s not real I have actually had many discussions with the creator of where he has mentioned that his audience isn’t to take on traditional practices or put psychologists or certified experts out of business his objective is to offer mental health access to the people who aren’t going to enter the treatment office and I 100% assistance that mission and I think it is very important and we have a problem with access

to psychological healthcare in this nation and is one service as our other online companies I was pointing out earlier that there are things that I personally believe that online treatment is better for or offline therapy is better suited for and I’ve in fact I’ve really discussed this in other settings due to the fact that it is something I feel quite passionate about and I need to say that my opinion has actually been favored by business like in terms of hopefully how they how they deal with individuals that present for care so I just wanted to spend a number of minutes discussing my own is my own individual opinion about the things that are most appropriate for offline versus online therapy so in my view I see online treatment as a wonderful location for people who are battling with difficult life transitions for circumstances where they’re experiencing more stress than normal for circumstances where you understand they have an extremely specific concern with anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is extremely structured can can benefit them and that therapy due to the fact that it’s not as interpersonal as others is perfect for online counseling due to the fact that it involves a great deal of research it involves worksheets it involves finding out specific abilities and techniques so moderate milder conditions like moderate stress and anxiety mild depression modification conditions even PTSD as long as like the individual has gotten care at first in other places these are all things that can be dealt with through online counseling you understand consider someone who has a agoraphobia and possibly they connect to a counselor from their house due to the fact that they can’t leave their home and just just to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where people are truly horrified of being trapped and caught in a location where they might have a panic attack and so essentially they start to restrict their activities and limit their activities until a lot of them can’t leave their home without really feeling substantial distress so if somebody like that is at house and they can connect through their computer and link to a counselor that’s a terrific first step is that going to treat them absolutely not since agoraphobia to be successfully treated requirements that person to be able to go outside and to resume regular activities and in some cases that includes a therapist going to their house to help them with that procedure clearly online therapists are going to be able to do that however might they be the bridge that got that person who hesitates to leave their house from that preliminary supportive technique to counseling where they can actually have a much better life 100% and this is what the gap that intends to fill with their services my indicate this to this specific video and bringing these

things up is that I I want to clearly communicate that anything that I show you is going to be totally from where I stand as an expert psychologist and more notably what I think is as simply 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 do not think is appropriate I will not share with you that online counseling is the cure-all for whatever because I do not believe that and so you can always expect to hear my sincere opinion on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you discovered this video handy and intriguing if you did please like it below and feel free to register for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing more and more videos on a range of different mental health topics and please reach out if there’s something particular you would like us to deal with or cover in an upcoming video
