Betterhelp Talk Therapy – Get your answer

When I was first approached…Betterhelp Talk Therapy…. to potentially work together with them on a youtube series among the things that was actually crucial to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I discussed 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 approved that by a they essentially said you know we trust you as a scientific professional and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and speak about what you know and one of the things that I really wished to address is the reality that I’m not just here to state that online therapy is the answer for everything you understand I think it can be incredibly practical for many people I’ve seen it myself dealing with individuals from a couple of months as much as over a year and I seen how being able to message and also have video sessions with someone is actually a it

nearly enriches the the healing experience in a manner at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals face-to-face and I completely enjoy that and there are individuals that I see there that I wouldn’t 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 just would not feel comfy and which’s fine those two things can both be true and I think among the important things that I want to start to have people think about is there’s a location for both offline and online therapy it is really a matter of you know choosing what’s right for you however likewise 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 issue that you’re dealing with and I believe that a person of the concerns that a lot 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 many conversations with the creator of where he has mentioned that his audience isn’t to take on physical practices or put psychologists or certified experts out of business his objective is to provide psychological health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter into the therapy office and I 100% assistance that mission and I think it is essential and we have an issue with access

to psychological health care 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 therapy is more appropriate for and I’ve in fact I’ve actually discussed this in other settings because it is something I feel pretty passionate about and I need to state that my viewpoint has actually been popular by companies like in regards to ideally how they how they work with individuals that present for care so I just wanted to invest 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 treatment as a terrific place for individuals who are dealing with hard life shifts for situations where they’re experiencing more tension than normal for situations where you know they have a really precise problem with stress and anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is really structured can can benefit them and that therapy since it’s not as social as others is ideal for online counseling since it involves a great deal of research it involves worksheets it includes learning particular skills and methods so mild milder conditions like mild anxiety mild depression change conditions even PTSD as long as like the person has received care initially elsewhere these are all things that can be dealt with through online counseling you know think of someone who has a agoraphobia and perhaps they connect to a counselor from their house since they can’t leave their home and simply simply to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where individuals are truly horrified of being caught and caught in a location where they might have a panic attack and so essentially they start to restrict their activities and restrict their activities up until much of them can’t leave their home without truly feeling considerable distress so if someone like that is at home and they can connect through their computer system and link to a therapist that’s a terrific first step is that going to treat them never because agoraphobia to be successfully dealt with needs that individual to be able to go outdoors and to resume typical activities and in some cases that involves a therapist going to their house to help them with that process clearly 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 home from that preliminary supportive approach to therapy where they can really have a better life 100% and this is what the gap 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 plainly communicate that anything that I show you is going to be totally from where I stand as an expert psychologist and more importantly what I think is as simply a human being on this earth trying to do the best that I can therefore I I won’t tell you that something is appropriate that I don’t believe is appropriate I will not show you that online counseling is the cure-all for everything because I do not believe that and so you can constantly expect to hear my sincere viewpoint on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you discovered this video helpful and fascinating 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 psychological health topics and please reach out if there’s something specific you would like us to cover or deal with in an approaching video
