Betterhelp Employment – Get your answer

When I was first approached…Betterhelp Employment…. to perhaps work together with them on a youtube series one of the things that was really important to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I discussed what what subjects I selected to provide and also you know my own views when when necessary or appropriate to share them and I was granted that by a they basically stated you understand we trust you as a scientific professional and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and talk about what you know and one of the important things that I truly wanted to address is the reality that I’m not simply here to say that online treatment is the answer for everything you know I believe it can be exceptionally handy for lots of people I’ve seen it myself dealing with individuals from a few months approximately over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and likewise have video sessions with somebody is really a it

practically enhances the the restorative experience in a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see people in person and I thoroughly delight in that and there are people that I see there that I wouldn’t consider seeing online either they wouldn’t be appropriate we wouldn’t be able to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it just would not feel comfortable and which’s all right those two things can both hold true and I think one of the things that I want to begin to have individuals think of exists’s a location for both online and offline treatment it is actually a matter of you know deciding what’s right for you but also what’s most proper for you with the help of a professional when I speak about particular therapy designs or approaches as being appropriate for you what I imply by that is that it would be the best approach for

the particular issue that you’re dealing with and I think that one of the concerns that a great deal of individuals have is that online therapy is attempting to change offline therapy and I can inform you 100% that that’s not true I have actually had many discussions with the founder of where he has pointed out that his audience isn’t to compete with physical practices or put psychologists or licensed specialists out of business his objective is to offer mental health access to the people who aren’t going to enter into the therapy office and I 100% support that objective and I think it is essential and we have an issue with gain access to

to psychological healthcare in this nation and is one option 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 more appropriate for and I’ve really I’ve in fact spoken about 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 actually been favored by companies like in terms of hopefully how they how they work with the people that provide for care so I just wished to spend a couple of minutes discussing my own is my own personal opinion about the important things that are most appropriate for online versus offline treatment so in my view I see online therapy as a fantastic location for individuals who are fighting with difficult life shifts for circumstances where they’re experiencing more stress than regular for scenarios where you understand they have a very specific problem with stress and anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is really structured can can benefit them which treatment due to the fact that it’s not as social as others is perfect for online counseling since it includes a lot of homework it includes worksheets it involves learning particular abilities and strategies so mild milder disorders like moderate anxiety mild depression adjustment conditions even PTSD as long as like the person has actually gotten care at first elsewhere these are all things that can be dealt with through online counseling you understand think about somebody who has a agoraphobia and maybe they connect to a counselor from their house due to the fact that they can’t leave their home and just simply to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where individuals are truly terrified of being caught and trapped in a location where they may have an anxiety attack therefore essentially they start to restrict their activities and limit their activities till many of them can’t leave their house without really feeling considerable distress so if somebody like that is at home and they can reach out through their computer and link to a counselor that’s an excellent primary step is that going to treat them absolutely not because agoraphobia to be successfully treated requirements that person to be able to go outdoors and to resume regular activities and often that includes a therapist going to their home to help them with that procedure clearly online counselors are going to be able to do that however could they be the bridge that got that individual who hesitates to leave their home from that preliminary supportive technique to counseling where they can actually have a better life 100% and this is what the space that intends to fill with their services my indicate this to this specific video and bringing these

things up is that I I wish to clearly interact that anything that I show you is going to be completely from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more significantly what I believe is as simply a human being on this earth attempting to do the best that I can and so I I won’t inform you that something is appropriate that I don’t think is appropriate I won’t show you that online therapy is the cure-all for everything due to the fact that I don’t think that and so you can constantly anticipate to hear my sincere viewpoint on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you found this video handy and interesting if you did please like it below and feel free to sign up for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing a growing number of videos on a variety of various mental health topics and please connect if there’s something particular you would like us to cover or attend to in an upcoming video
