When I was first approached…Betterhelp Financial Aid…. to potentially collaborate with them on a youtube series one of the things that was truly important to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I talked about what what subjects I chose to provide and also you understand my own views when when essential or appropriate to share them and I was approved that by a they generally said you understand we trust you as a clinical professional and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and speak about what you understand and among the things that I actually wished to address is the truth that I’m not just here to state that online therapy is the answer for everything you understand I believe it can be extremely handy for many individuals I have actually seen it myself dealing with individuals from a few months as much as over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and also have video sessions with somebody is really a it

nearly improves the the restorative experience in a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals in person and I completely delight in that and there are individuals that I see there that I wouldn’t consider 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 comfy and and that’s fine those 2 things can both hold true and I think one of the things that I wish to begin to have individuals think of exists’s a location for both online and offline therapy it is really a matter of you know deciding what’s right for you however likewise what’s most appropriate for you with the help of a professional when I speak about certain therapy styles or approaches as being appropriate for you what I mean by that is that it would be the very best method for

the particular issue that you’re dealing with and I believe that one of the concerns that a great deal of individuals have is that online counseling is attempting to change offline therapy and I can inform you 100% that that’s not real I have actually had many conversations with the creator of where he has actually mentioned that his audience isn’t to take on physical practices or put psychologists or licensed experts out of business his mission is to offer psychological health access to the people who aren’t going to come into the therapy office and I 100% assistance that mission and I think it is necessary and we have a problem with gain access to

to mental health care in this nation and is one solution as our other online business I was discussing previously that there are things that I personally believe that online therapy is more appropriate for or offline therapy is better for and I’ve in fact I’ve in fact discussed this in other settings because it is something I feel quite passionate about and I need to say that my opinion has been popular by companies like in terms of hopefully how they how they deal with individuals that present for care so I simply wished to spend a number of minutes discussing my own is my own individual opinion about the things that are most appropriate for online versus offline therapy so in my view I see online therapy as a wonderful place for people who are dealing with tough life transitions for circumstances where they’re experiencing more tension than regular for circumstances where you understand they have a very clear-cut concern with stress and anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is extremely structured can can benefit them and that therapy since it’s not as social as others is ideal for online counseling because it includes a great deal of research it involves worksheets it includes discovering specific skills and techniques so mild milder conditions like moderate anxiety mild depression modification disorders even PTSD as long as like the individual has gotten care initially elsewhere these are all things that can be attended to through online counseling you understand think of somebody who has a agoraphobia and maybe they connect to a counselor from their house because they can’t leave their home and simply just to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where individuals are actually terrified of being trapped and caught in a place where they may have an anxiety attack therefore basically they begin to limit their activities and limit their activities until many of them can’t leave their home without actually feeling substantial distress so if someone like that is at home and they can reach out through their computer and connect to a counselor that’s a fantastic initial step is that going to cure them never since agoraphobia to be effectively treated needs that individual to be able to go outdoors and to resume regular activities and often that involves a therapist going to their house to help them with that procedure undoubtedly online counselors are going to be able to do that however could they be the bridge that got that person who’s afraid to leave their home from that preliminary helpful approach to therapy where they can in fact have a better life 100% and this is what the space that aims to fill with their services my point to this to this particular video and bringing these

things up is that I I want to plainly interact that anything that I show you is going to be completely from where I stand as an expert psychologist and more notably what I believe is as simply a human being on this earth trying to do the best that I can and so I I won’t inform you that something is appropriate that I don’t believe is appropriate I won’t show you that online counseling is the cure-all for everything since I do not think that and so you can always anticipate to hear my sincere viewpoint on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you discovered this video practical and intriguing if you did please like it listed below and feel free to register for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing a growing number of videos on a variety of different mental health topics and please reach out if there’s something particular you would like us to cover or deal with in an upcoming video
