Betterhelp Gender Therapy – Get your answer

When I was first approached…Betterhelp Gender Therapy…. to perhaps collaborate with them on a youtube series one of the important things that was really essential to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I discussed what what subjects I chose to present and also you understand my own views when when necessary or appropriate to share them and I was approved that by a they generally said you understand we trust you as a medical expert and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and speak about what you know and among the important things that I actually wished to address is the reality that I’m not just here to say that online therapy is the answer for everything you know I think it can be extremely helpful for lots of people I’ve seen it myself working with individuals from a couple of months up to over a year and I seen how being able to message and also have video sessions with someone is truly a it

practically enriches the the therapeutic experience in a manner at the same time I have a private practice where I see people face-to-face and I completely enjoy that and there are individuals that I see there that I would not think about seeing online either they wouldn’t be appropriate we wouldn’t have the ability to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it simply wouldn’t feel comfy and and that’s all right those two things can both hold true and I believe one of the things that I want to begin to have individuals think of exists’s a place for both offline and online treatment it is actually a matter of you understand choosing what’s right for you however also what’s most appropriate for you with the help of a professional when I discuss particular therapy styles or methods as being appropriate for you what I imply by that is that it would be the best method for

the particular issue that you’re handling and I think that a person of the concerns that a great deal of people have is that online counseling is attempting to replace offline counseling and I can tell you 100% that that’s not true I have actually had numerous discussions with the creator of where he has pointed out that his audience isn’t to compete with brick and mortar practices or put psychologists or licensed experts out of business his mission is to supply psychological health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter into the treatment workplace and I 100% support that mission and I think it is very important and we have a problem with access

to mental health care in this country and is one option as our other online business I was discussing previously that there are things that I personally think that online treatment is more appropriate for or offline treatment is more appropriate for and I’ve actually I’ve really discussed this in other settings since it is something I feel pretty enthusiastic about and I have to state that my opinion has actually been well-received by companies like in regards to ideally how they how they deal with individuals that present for care so I just wished to invest a number of minutes speaking about my own is my own personal viewpoint about the things that are most appropriate for online versus offline therapy so in my view I see online therapy as a terrific place for individuals who are having problem with tough life transitions for scenarios where they’re experiencing more stress than typical for circumstances where you understand they have an extremely specific concern with anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is really structured can can benefit them and that therapy due to the fact that it’s not as social as others is best for online counseling due to the fact that it involves a great deal of homework it involves worksheets it includes learning specific abilities and techniques so moderate milder conditions like moderate anxiety mild depression adjustment conditions even PTSD as long as like the individual has actually received care initially in other places these are all things that can be attended to through online therapy you know consider someone who has a agoraphobia and possibly they connect to a therapist from their home because they can’t leave their house and simply simply to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where individuals are really frightened of being trapped and caught in a place where they may have a panic attack therefore basically they start to limit their activities and limit their activities until many of them can’t leave their home without truly feeling considerable distress so if somebody like that is at house and they can reach out through their computer system and connect to a counselor that’s a terrific first step is that going to treat them never because agoraphobia to be effectively dealt with requirements that individual to be able to go outdoors and to resume typical activities and in some cases that involves a therapist going to their home to help them with that procedure obviously online counselors are going to be able to do that but could they be the bridge that got that individual who’s afraid to leave their house from that initial supportive technique to therapy where they can in fact have a much 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 clearly communicate that anything that I share with you is going to be completely from where I stand as an expert 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 and so I I won’t inform you that something is appropriate that I do not believe is appropriate I won’t show you that online therapy is the cure-all for whatever due to the fact that I don’t believe that therefore you can constantly anticipate to hear my sincere opinion on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a licensed psychologist I hope you discovered this video helpful 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 increasingly more videos on a variety of various psychological health topics and please connect if there’s something particular you would like us to cover or address in an approaching video
