When I was first approached…Betterhelp Group Therapy…. to potentially collaborate with them on a youtube series among the important things that was actually crucial to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I spoke about what what subjects I chose to provide and likewise you know my own views when when required or appropriate to share them and I was approved that by a they basically said you know we trust you as a scientific professional and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and discuss what you know and one of the things that I actually wanted to address is the truth that I’m not just here to state that online therapy is the answer for whatever you know I think it can be exceptionally practical for lots of people I’ve seen it myself dealing with individuals from a few months up to over a year and I seen how being able to message and also have video sessions with somebody is truly a it

almost enhances the the healing experience in such a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals in person and I completely take pleasure in that and there are people that I see there that I would not 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 simply wouldn’t feel comfy and which’s fine those two things can both hold true and I think one of the important things that I want to begin to have people think about exists’s a location for both online and offline therapy it is actually a matter of you understand choosing what’s right for you but also what’s most proper for you with the help of an expert when I speak about certain therapy designs or techniques 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 handling and I believe that one of the concerns that a great deal of individuals have is that online counseling is trying to change offline therapy and I can tell you 100% that that’s not real I’ve had numerous conversations with the creator of where he has actually mentioned that his audience isn’t to compete with brick and mortar practices or put psychologists or licensed specialists out of business his mission is to offer mental health access to the people who aren’t going to enter into the therapy office and I 100% assistance that objective and I believe it is very 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 discussing earlier that there are things that I personally believe that online therapy is better for or offline therapy is better for and I’ve in fact I’ve actually discussed this in other settings due to the fact that it is something I feel quite enthusiastic about and I have to state that my opinion has been popular by business like in terms of ideally how they how they deal with individuals that provide for care so I just wished to invest a couple of minutes speaking about my own is my own personal viewpoint about the important things that are most suitable for offline versus online therapy so in my view I see online treatment as a fantastic location for people who are struggling with difficult life shifts for circumstances where they’re experiencing more stress than normal for situations where you know they have an extremely clear-cut problem with stress and anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is very structured can can benefit them which therapy since it’s not as social as others is perfect for online counseling due to the fact that it includes a lot of homework it includes worksheets it includes finding out specific skills and techniques so mild milder conditions like moderate stress and anxiety mild depression adjustment conditions even PTSD as long as like the individual has actually gotten care at first somewhere else these are all things that can be attended to through online counseling you understand consider someone 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 disorder where people are truly horrified of being caught and caught in a location where they may have a panic attack and so essentially they start to restrict their activities and restrict their activities up until many of them can’t leave their home without actually feeling significant distress so if someone like that is at house and they can connect through their computer system and link to a counselor that’s an excellent primary step is that going to treat them absolutely not because agoraphobia to be successfully dealt with needs that individual to be able to go outside and to resume regular activities and in some cases that includes a therapist going to their home to help them with that process certainly online therapists are going to have the ability to do that but could they be the bridge that got that person who’s afraid to leave their house from that preliminary supportive technique to counseling where they can in fact 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 communicate that anything that I show you is going to be fully from where I stand as a professional 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 won’t tell you that something is appropriate that I don’t believe is appropriate I won’t share with you that online counseling is the cure-all for everything due to the fact that I don’t believe that and so you can always anticipate to hear my truthful opinion on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a licensed psychologist I hope you discovered this video intriguing and helpful if you did please like it listed 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 subjects and please connect if there’s something particular you would like us to cover or attend to in an upcoming video
