Better Help Aetna – Try Now

When I was first approached…Better Help Aetna…. to potentially work together 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 understand my own views when when needed or appropriate to share them and I was granted that by a they essentially said you know we trust you as a clinical expert and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and talk about what you understand and one of the things that I actually wished to address is the reality that I’m not just here to say that online therapy is the answer for whatever you understand I think it can be exceptionally practical for many people I’ve seen it myself dealing 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 actually a it

almost improves the the restorative experience in a manner at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals face-to-face and I thoroughly take pleasure in that and there are individuals that I see there that I wouldn’t consider seeing online either they would not be appropriate we wouldn’t have the ability to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it just wouldn’t feel comfy and and that’s okay those two things can both be true and I believe one of the things that I wish to begin to have people think about is there’s a place for both offline and online therapy it is actually a matter of you understand choosing what’s right for you however also what’s most suitable for you with the help of a professional when I talk about certain counseling styles or approaches as being appropriate for you what I mean 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 great deal of individuals have is that online therapy is attempting to change offline counseling and I can inform you 100% that that’s not true I’ve had many discussions with the creator of where he has pointed out that his audience isn’t to compete with traditional practices or put psychologists or licensed professionals out of business his objective is to supply mental health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter into the treatment office and I 100% assistance that objective and I believe it is essential and we have an issue with access

to psychological health care in this nation and is one service as our other online companies I was pointing out earlier that there are things that I personally believe that online treatment is more appropriate for or offline treatment is better suited for and I’ve actually I’ve in fact spoken about this in other settings due to the fact that it is something I feel pretty enthusiastic about and I need to state that my viewpoint has been popular by companies like in terms of hopefully how they how they deal with individuals that provide for care so I simply wanted to spend a couple of minutes talking about my own is my own personal viewpoint about the important things that are most suitable for online versus offline treatment so in my view I see online therapy as a wonderful location for people who are fighting with hard life shifts for circumstances where they’re experiencing more tension than normal for situations where you know they have a really specific concern with stress and anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is extremely structured can can benefit them which treatment due to the fact that it’s not as social as others is best for online counseling since it includes a lot of research it involves worksheets it involves finding out particular abilities and strategies so mild milder disorders like moderate anxiety mild depression modification conditions even PTSD as long as like the individual has actually gotten care at first somewhere else these are all things that can be addressed through online therapy you know think about someone who has a agoraphobia and perhaps they connect to a counselor from their house because they can’t leave their house and just simply to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where individuals are truly frightened of being caught and trapped in a location where they might have an anxiety attack and so basically they begin to limit their activities and limit their activities up until much of them can’t leave their house without really feeling significant distress so if somebody like that is at house and they can reach out through their computer system and link to a counselor that’s a fantastic first step is that going to treat them absolutely not since agoraphobia to be effectively treated needs that individual to be able to go outdoors and to resume normal 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 however could 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 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 plainly interact that anything that I share with you is going to be completely from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more notably what I believe is as simply a human being on this earth trying to do the very best that I can and so I I will not tell you that something is appropriate that I do not believe is appropriate I will not share with you that online counseling is the cure-all for everything since I do not believe that therefore you can constantly expect to hear my honest opinion on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a licensed psychologist I hope you discovered this video interesting and helpful if you did please like it listed below and do not hesitate to register for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing more and more videos on a variety of various psychological health topics and please reach out if there’s something specific you would like us to resolve or cover in an approaching video
