Betterhelp Drama – Get your answer

When I was first approached…Betterhelp Drama…. to potentially work together with them on a youtube series among the things that was truly crucial to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I discussed what what topics I chose to present and also you know my own views when when needed or appropriate to share them and I was approved that by a they basically said you know we trust you as a scientific expert and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and discuss what you know and one of the things that I actually wished to address is the fact that I’m not simply here to state that online therapy is the answer for everything you know I believe it can be incredibly handy for lots of people I have actually seen it myself dealing with individuals from a few months as much as over a year and I seen how being able to message and likewise have video sessions with somebody is actually a it

nearly enriches 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 enjoy that and there are individuals that I see there that I wouldn’t consider seeing online either they would not be appropriate we wouldn’t have the ability to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it just wouldn’t feel comfortable and and that’s fine those two things can both be true and I believe among the things that I want to begin to have people think of is there’s a location for both offline and online therapy it is actually a matter of you know choosing what’s right for you however also what’s most proper for you with the help of an expert when I talk about specific therapy designs or approaches as being appropriate for you what I indicate by that is that it would be the best approach for

the particular problem that you’re dealing with and I think that one of the issues that a lot of people have is that online therapy is trying to change offline therapy and I can inform you 100% that that’s not true I have actually had lots of conversations with the creator of where he has actually discussed that his audience isn’t to take on traditional practices or put psychologists or certified professionals out of business his mission is to provide psychological health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter the treatment workplace and I 100% assistance that mission and I believe it’s important and we have a problem with gain access to

to mental healthcare in this nation and is one solution as our other online business I was mentioning earlier that there are things that I personally think that online therapy is better suited for or offline therapy is better suited for and I’ve really I’ve actually discussed this in other settings since it is something I feel pretty enthusiastic about and I have to say that my viewpoint has actually been popular by business like in regards to hopefully how they how they work with individuals that provide for care so I just wanted to spend a couple of minutes talking about my own is my own individual opinion about the important things that are most suitable for online versus offline therapy so in my view I see online therapy as a wonderful location for people who are struggling with hard life shifts for scenarios where they’re experiencing more tension than typical for circumstances where you know they have a very precise issue with anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is really structured can can benefit them which therapy since it’s not as interpersonal as others is best for online counseling since it includes a great deal of research it includes worksheets it involves finding out particular abilities and techniques so mild milder conditions like mild anxiety mild depression modification conditions even PTSD as long as like the individual has gotten care initially somewhere else these are all things that can be attended to through online therapy you know consider somebody who has a agoraphobia and maybe they reach out to a therapist from their house since they can’t leave their house and simply just to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where people are actually frightened of being trapped and trapped in a location where they may have an anxiety attack therefore basically they start to restrict their activities and limit their activities till a lot of them can’t leave their home without truly feeling substantial distress so if somebody like that is at home and they can connect through their computer system and connect to a therapist that’s a great first step is that going to cure them absolutely not since agoraphobia to be successfully dealt with needs that individual to be able to go outside and to resume regular activities and often that involves a therapist going to their house to help them with that process undoubtedly online counselors are going to be able to do that however might they be the bridge that got that person who hesitates to leave their home from that preliminary helpful method to therapy where they can in fact have a better life 100% and this is what the gap that aims to fill with their services my point to this to this particular video and bringing these

things up is that I I wish to clearly interact that anything that I share with you is going to be totally from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more importantly what I think is as just a human being on this earth trying to do the very best that I can therefore I I will not tell you that something is appropriate that I don’t believe is appropriate I will not show you that online counseling is the cure-all for everything because I don’t believe that therefore you can always anticipate to hear my honest viewpoint on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you discovered this video intriguing and handy if you did please like it below and do not hesitate to subscribe to our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing increasingly more videos on a range of various psychological health topics and please connect if there’s something particular you would like us to cover or resolve in an upcoming video
