When I was first approached…Betterhelp New Zealand…. to perhaps team up with them on a youtube series among the things that was truly crucial to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I spoke about what what subjects I chose to present and likewise you understand my own views when when required or appropriate to share them and I was given that by a they essentially said you understand we trust you as a medical professional and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and talk about what you know and among the things that I truly wished to address is the truth that I’m not just here to state that online treatment is the answer for whatever you understand I believe it can be exceptionally helpful for many people I have actually seen it myself working with people from a couple of months as much as over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and also have video sessions with someone is actually a it

practically improves the the restorative experience in such 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 people that I see there that I wouldn’t consider seeing online either they wouldn’t be appropriate we would not have the ability to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it simply wouldn’t feel comfortable and which’s alright those two things can both hold true and I believe among the things that I want to begin to have people consider is there’s a location for both online and offline therapy it is really a matter of you know choosing what’s right for you however also what’s most proper for you with the help of an expert when I discuss specific therapy designs or approaches as being appropriate for you what I indicate by that is that it would be the very best technique for

the particular issue that you’re handling and I believe that one of the issues that a lot of individuals have is that online therapy is attempting to replace offline therapy and I can inform you 100% that that’s not true I have actually had lots of discussions with the founder of where he has actually mentioned that his audience isn’t to take on brick and mortar practices or put psychologists or certified professionals out of business his mission is to supply mental health access to the people who aren’t going to enter the treatment workplace and I 100% assistance that objective and I believe it is essential and we have a problem with gain access to

to psychological healthcare in this country and is one solution as our other online business I was pointing out earlier that there are things that I personally think that online therapy is better for or offline treatment is better for and I’ve actually I’ve in fact discussed this in other settings due to the fact that it is something I feel quite enthusiastic about and I need to state that my viewpoint has been well-received by companies like in terms of ideally how they how they deal with the people that present for care so I simply wished to invest a couple of minutes speaking about my own is my own individual opinion about the important things that are most appropriate for offline versus online therapy so in my view I see online therapy as a wonderful place for individuals who are struggling with challenging life transitions for scenarios where they’re experiencing more stress than regular for situations where you understand they have a really well-defined issue with anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is very structured can can benefit them which treatment due to the fact that it’s not as interpersonal as others is best for online counseling because it includes a lot of research it involves worksheets it involves finding out particular abilities and techniques so moderate milder conditions like moderate anxiety mild depression modification conditions even PTSD as long as like the individual has gotten care at first somewhere else these are all things that can be resolved through online counseling you understand consider someone who has a agoraphobia and maybe they reach out to a therapist from their home since they can’t leave their home and just just to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where people are truly terrified of being caught and caught in a location where they might have an anxiety attack therefore basically they start to limit their activities and limit their activities up until many of them can’t leave their house without truly feeling significant distress so if someone like that is at home and they can connect through their computer and link to a counselor that’s a fantastic first step is that going to treat them absolutely not due to the fact that agoraphobia to be successfully dealt with needs that individual to be able to go outside and to resume regular activities and sometimes that involves a therapist going to their house to help them with that procedure certainly online counselors are going to have the ability to do that but could they be the bridge that got that individual who’s afraid to leave their home from that initial helpful method to counseling where they can actually have a much better life 100% and this is what the space that intends 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 interact that anything that I share with you is going to be totally from where I stand as an expert psychologist and more significantly what I think is as simply 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 do not believe is appropriate I won’t show you that online therapy is the cure-all for everything because I don’t believe that therefore you can constantly anticipate to hear my truthful viewpoint on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you found this video intriguing and practical if you did please like it below and do not hesitate to sign up for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing a growing number of videos on a range of various mental health subjects and please reach out if there’s something specific you would like us to address or cover in an upcoming video
