When I was first approached…Betterhelp Therapy…. to potentially collaborate with them on a youtube series among the things that was actually important to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I discussed what what subjects I chose to provide and likewise you understand my own views when when needed or appropriate to share them and I was given that by a they basically said you understand we trust you as a medical expert and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and talk about what you understand and among the things that I truly wanted to address is the fact that I’m not just here to say that online therapy is the answer for everything you know I believe it can be exceptionally handy for many people I have actually seen it myself working with people from a few months approximately over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and likewise have video sessions with somebody is truly a it

practically enriches the the therapeutic experience in a manner at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals in person and I completely enjoy that and there are people that I see there that I wouldn’t think about seeing online either they would not 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 2 things can both be true and I think among the important things that I want to start to have people consider is there’s a place for both offline and online therapy it is really a matter of you know choosing what’s right for you but likewise what’s most proper for you with the help of an expert when I discuss particular therapy styles or approaches as being appropriate for you what I imply by that is that it would be the very best technique for

the particular issue that you’re dealing with and I believe that one of the concerns that a great deal of individuals have is that online therapy is trying to replace offline therapy and I can tell you 100% that that’s not real I’ve had many conversations with the founder of where he has discussed that his audience isn’t to compete with traditional practices or put psychologists or certified specialists out of business his objective is to provide psychological health access to the people who aren’t going to enter into the treatment office and I 100% assistance that objective and I believe it is necessary and we have an issue with gain access to

to mental healthcare in this nation and is one service as our other online business I was mentioning earlier that there are things that I personally think that online therapy is better suited for or offline therapy is more appropriate for and I’ve actually I’ve in fact spoken about this in other settings since it is something I feel quite enthusiastic about and I have to state that my opinion has actually been favored by business like in regards to ideally how they how they deal with individuals that present for care so I just wanted to invest a couple of minutes discussing my own is my own personal opinion about the important things that are most proper for online versus offline treatment 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 typical for circumstances where you understand they have a really clear-cut issue with stress and anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is very structured can can benefit them which treatment since it’s not as social as others is best for online counseling due to the fact that it includes a lot of homework it involves worksheets it involves finding out particular skills and strategies so mild milder conditions like moderate stress and anxiety mild depression modification conditions even PTSD as long as like the individual has actually received care at first somewhere else these are all things that can be attended to through online counseling you understand think about somebody who has a agoraphobia and possibly they reach out to a therapist from their house due to the fact that they can’t leave their house and just simply to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where individuals are really terrified of being caught and caught in a location where they might have a panic attack therefore essentially they begin to restrict their activities and limit their activities until a lot of them can’t leave their home without truly feeling significant distress so if somebody like that is at house and they can connect through their computer and link to a therapist that’s a great initial step is that going to treat them absolutely not due to the fact that agoraphobia to be successfully dealt with requirements that individual to be able to go outside and to resume typical activities and in some cases that includes a therapist going to their home to help them with that process obviously online counselors are going to have the ability to do that however might they be the bridge that got that person who’s afraid to leave their home from that preliminary encouraging technique to therapy where they can in fact have a much better life 100% and this is what the gap that intends to fill with their services my indicate this to this particular 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 completely from where I stand as an expert psychologist and more notably what I believe is as simply a human being on this earth attempting to do the best that I can and so I I won’t tell you that something is appropriate that I do not believe is appropriate I won’t share with you that online therapy is the cure-all for whatever due to the fact that I don’t believe that and so you can always anticipate to hear my sincere viewpoint on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you discovered this video intriguing and valuable if you did please like it listed below and feel free to register for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing a growing number of videos on a range of different psychological health topics and please connect if there’s something particular you would like us to cover or resolve in an approaching video
