Betterhelp Therapy Ireland – Get your answer

When I was first approached…Betterhelp Therapy Ireland…. to perhaps collaborate with them on a youtube series one of the things that was really crucial to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I discussed what what subjects I picked to present and also you know my own views when when required or appropriate to share them and I was given that by a they essentially stated you know we trust you as a medical professional and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and speak about what you know and one of 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 everything you know I think it can be extremely valuable for many individuals I have actually seen it myself dealing with people from a few months as much as over a year and I seen how being able to message and also have video sessions with somebody is really a it

almost enhances the the therapeutic experience in a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see people in person and I thoroughly take pleasure in 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 simply wouldn’t feel comfortable and which’s alright those two things can both be true and I think among the important things that I wish to begin to have individuals think about exists’s a location for both online and offline treatment it is truly a matter of you know choosing what’s right for you but also what’s most appropriate for you with the help of a professional when I speak about certain therapy designs or approaches as being appropriate for you what I suggest by that is that it would be the best method for

the particular issue that you’re dealing with and I believe that one of the concerns that a lot of people have is that online therapy is attempting to change offline therapy and I can tell you 100% that that’s not true I have actually had many discussions with the founder of where he has pointed out that his audience isn’t to compete with brick and mortar practices or put psychologists or certified specialists out of business his objective is to offer mental health access to the people who aren’t going to enter the therapy office and I 100% assistance that objective and I believe it is essential and we have a problem with gain access to

to mental health care in this nation and is one solution as our other online companies I was mentioning previously that there are things that I personally think that online treatment is more appropriate for or offline therapy is more appropriate for and I’ve in fact I’ve in fact discussed this in other settings due to the fact that it is something I feel quite passionate about and I have to say that my viewpoint has been well-received by companies like in terms of ideally how they how they work with the people that present for care so I just wanted to spend a couple of minutes speaking about my own is my own personal opinion about the important things that are most suitable for online versus offline therapy so in my view I see online therapy as a terrific location for people who are fighting with difficult life shifts for circumstances where they’re experiencing more tension than typical for situations where you understand they have an extremely clear-cut concern with anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is very structured can can benefit them and that therapy because it’s not as social as others is perfect for online counseling due to the fact that it includes a great deal of research it involves worksheets it involves finding out particular abilities and strategies so mild milder disorders like mild anxiety mild depression adjustment conditions even PTSD as long as like the person has actually gotten care at first elsewhere these are all things that can be dealt with through online therapy you understand think about someone who has a agoraphobia and possibly they connect to a counselor from their house due to the fact that they can’t leave their home and just simply to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where people are truly horrified of being trapped and trapped in a location where they may have an anxiety attack and so essentially they begin to restrict their activities and limit their activities until 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 and link to a counselor that’s a terrific first step is that going to cure them absolutely not due to the fact that agoraphobia to be successfully treated needs that person to be able to go outside and to resume normal activities and sometimes that includes a therapist going to their home to help them with that process certainly online counselors are going to have the ability to do that however could they be the bridge that got that person who hesitates to leave their house from that initial encouraging technique to counseling where they can in fact have a better life 100% and this is what the gap that aims to fill with their services my point to this to this specific video and bringing these

things up is that I I wish to clearly communicate that anything that I share with you is going to be fully 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 very best that I can therefore I I won’t inform you that something is appropriate that I don’t think is appropriate I will not share with you that online therapy is the cure-all for whatever because I do not believe that therefore 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 found this video practical and interesting if you did please like it 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 topics and please reach out if there’s something particular you would like us to cover or address in an approaching video
