When I was first approached…Betterhelp Glassdoor…. to possibly collaborate with them on a youtube series one of the things that was really essential to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I spoke about what what topics I chose to present and also you know my own views when when required or appropriate to share them and I was granted that by a they essentially stated you know we trust you as a scientific expert and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and discuss what you understand and one of the 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 whatever you know I believe it can be exceptionally practical for many individuals I’ve seen it myself dealing with people from a couple of months approximately over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and also have video sessions with somebody is really a it

almost improves the the restorative experience in a manner at the same time I have a private practice where I see people face-to-face and I thoroughly delight in that and there are people 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 would not feel comfortable and and that’s all right those 2 things can both be true and I think among the things that I want to begin to have individuals consider exists’s a place for both offline and online treatment it is actually a matter of you know deciding what’s right for you but also what’s most appropriate for you with the help of an expert when I speak about particular therapy designs or methods as being appropriate for you what I indicate by that is that it would be the very best technique for

the particular problem that you’re handling and I think that a person of the issues that a great deal of individuals have is that online counseling is trying to change offline therapy and I can inform you 100% that that’s not real I have actually had numerous discussions with the founder of where he has actually discussed that his audience isn’t to take on brick and mortar practices or put psychologists or licensed specialists out of business his mission is to supply mental health access to the people who aren’t going to enter into the treatment workplace and I 100% assistance that mission and I think it is very important and we have a problem with gain access to

to mental healthcare in this country and is one solution as our other online companies 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 really I’ve in fact spoken about this in other settings since it is something I feel pretty enthusiastic about and I need to state that my opinion has actually been popular by business like in regards to ideally how they how they work with the people that present for care so I just wished to spend a couple of minutes speaking about my own is my own individual viewpoint about the important things that are most suitable for offline versus online therapy so in my view I see online treatment as a terrific location for people who are having problem with tough life shifts for scenarios where they’re experiencing more stress than regular for scenarios where you know they have a really clear-cut issue with anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is extremely structured can can benefit them which therapy since it’s not as social as others is best for online counseling since it involves a lot of homework it involves worksheets it includes learning specific abilities and strategies so moderate milder disorders like moderate stress and anxiety mild depression adjustment conditions even PTSD as long as like the person has gotten care initially in other places these are all things that can be dealt with through online counseling you know consider someone who has a agoraphobia and perhaps they reach out to a counselor from their house since they can’t leave their home and simply just to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where individuals are really frightened of being caught and caught in a location where they may have an anxiety attack and so basically they start to limit their activities and limit their activities till a lot of them can’t leave their house without truly feeling significant distress so if somebody like that is at home and they can reach out through their computer system and connect to a therapist that’s a fantastic initial step is that going to treat them absolutely not due to the fact that agoraphobia to be effectively dealt with needs that individual 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 procedure certainly online therapists are going to have the ability to do that however could they be the bridge that got that individual who hesitates to leave their home from that initial encouraging technique to counseling where they can really have a much 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 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 significantly what I believe is as just a human being on this earth trying to do the best that I can and so I I will not tell you that something is appropriate that I don’t think is appropriate I won’t share with you that online therapy is the cure-all for whatever because I don’t think that and so you can constantly expect to hear my sincere opinion on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you discovered this video fascinating and handy 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 various psychological health subjects and please connect if there’s something specific you would like us to attend to or cover in an approaching video
