Betterhelp Dbt – Get your answer

When I was first approached…Betterhelp Dbt…. to potentially collaborate with them on a youtube series one of the things that was actually important to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I spoke about what what subjects I selected to present and also you know my own views when when required or appropriate to share them and I was given that by a they generally said you know we trust you as a medical professional and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and talk about what you understand and among the important things that I really wanted to address is the reality that I’m not simply here to say that online therapy is the answer for everything you know I think it can be exceptionally helpful for lots of people I have actually seen it myself dealing with people from a couple of months up to over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and likewise have video sessions with somebody is really a it

almost improves the the therapeutic experience in a manner 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 would not think about seeing online either they would not be appropriate we wouldn’t be able to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it just would not feel comfy and and that’s okay those 2 things can both be true and I think one of the important things that I wish to start to have individuals consider exists’s a place for both offline and online treatment it is really a matter of you know choosing what’s right for you however also what’s most appropriate for you with the help of a professional when I talk about particular therapy styles or methods as being appropriate for you what I suggest by that is that it would be the best technique for

the particular issue that you’re dealing with and I think that a person of the issues that a lot of people have is that online counseling is attempting to change offline therapy and I can tell you 100% that that’s not true I have actually had lots of discussions with the founder of where he has mentioned that his audience isn’t to take on traditional practices or put psychologists or licensed experts out of business his objective is to provide mental health access to the people who aren’t going to enter the therapy office and I 100% assistance that objective and I think it is necessary and we have a problem with gain access to

to psychological healthcare in this nation and is one service as our other online companies I was mentioning previously that there are things that I personally believe that online therapy is more appropriate for or offline treatment is better for and I’ve in fact I’ve actually discussed this in other settings due to the fact that it is something I feel pretty enthusiastic about and I have 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 invest a number of minutes speaking about my own is my own personal viewpoint about the important things that are most suitable for online versus offline therapy so in my view I see online therapy as a fantastic location for people who are struggling with hard life shifts for circumstances where they’re experiencing more stress than typical for scenarios where you understand they have a very well-defined issue with anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is really structured can can benefit them which therapy since it’s not as interpersonal as others is ideal for online therapy due to the fact that it includes a lot of research it includes worksheets it includes finding out particular abilities and strategies so moderate milder conditions like moderate 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 know think about somebody who has a agoraphobia and maybe they connect to a counselor from their home since they can’t leave their home and simply simply to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where people are truly frightened of being trapped and caught in a place where they might have an anxiety attack therefore basically they start to limit their activities and restrict their activities up until much of them can’t leave their home without actually feeling substantial distress so if someone like that is at house and they can connect through their computer and connect to a counselor that’s a fantastic initial step is that going to cure them never because agoraphobia to be effectively dealt with needs that person to be able to go outdoors and to resume normal activities and in some cases that involves a therapist going to their house to help them with that process obviously online therapists are going to be able to do that but might they be the bridge that got that person who’s afraid to leave their house from that preliminary helpful method to counseling where they can actually have a better life 100% and this is what the gap 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 share with you is going to be completely from where I stand as an expert psychologist and more notably what I believe is as just a human being on this earth attempting to do the best that I can therefore I I won’t inform you that something is appropriate that I do not think is appropriate I won’t share with you that online counseling is the cure-all for whatever because I don’t think that therefore you can constantly anticipate to hear my truthful opinion on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a licensed psychologist I hope you found this video handy and intriguing 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 a growing number of videos on a variety of different psychological health topics and please reach out if there’s something specific you would like us to cover or attend to in an upcoming video
