When I was first approached…Better Help Counseling…. to possibly work together with them on a youtube series one of the things that was actually crucial to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I spoke about what what topics I chose to provide and likewise you understand my own views when when essential or appropriate to share them and I was approved that by a they basically stated you know we trust you as a scientific expert and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and discuss what you know and one of the things that I really wished to address is the reality that I’m not just here to say that online therapy is the answer for whatever you know I believe it can be incredibly valuable for lots of people I’ve seen it myself dealing with individuals from a couple of months up to over a year and I seen how being able to message and likewise have video sessions with someone is really a it

practically enhances the the healing experience in a manner at the same time I have a private practice where I see people face-to-face and I thoroughly delight in that and there are people that I see there that I would not consider seeing online either they would not 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 comfy and which’s all right those 2 things can both be true and I believe among the important things that I wish to begin to have individuals think of exists’s a location for both offline and online therapy it is truly a matter of you know choosing what’s right for you but also what’s most proper for you with the help of a professional when I speak about particular therapy styles or techniques 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 a person of the issues that a great deal of people have is that online therapy is attempting to change offline therapy and I can tell you 100% that that’s not real I’ve had numerous discussions with the creator of where he has actually mentioned that his audience isn’t to compete with traditional practices or put psychologists or certified professionals out of business his mission is to offer psychological health access to the people who aren’t going to enter into the therapy workplace and I 100% support that mission and I believe it is essential and we have an issue with gain access to

to mental health care in this nation and is one service as our other online companies I was pointing out previously that there are things that I personally think that online treatment is better for or offline treatment is more appropriate for and I’ve in fact I’ve really discussed this in other settings since it is something I feel pretty enthusiastic about and I need to state that my viewpoint has been favored by companies like in regards to ideally how they how they deal with the people that present for care so I simply wanted to spend a number of minutes discussing my own is my own personal opinion about the important things that are most appropriate for offline versus online treatment so in my view I see online treatment as a terrific place for people who are dealing with difficult life transitions for circumstances where they’re experiencing more tension than regular for circumstances where you understand they have an extremely specific concern with stress and anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is really structured can can benefit them and that treatment because it’s not as interpersonal as others is best for online counseling due to the fact that it involves a lot of research it includes worksheets it includes finding out particular abilities and strategies so moderate milder disorders like moderate anxiety mild depression change disorders even PTSD as long as like the person has gotten care initially somewhere else these are all things that can be attended to through online therapy you know consider somebody who has a agoraphobia and maybe they connect to a therapist from their house due to the fact that they can’t leave their home and just just to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where people are really terrified of being caught and trapped in a location where they may have a panic attack and so essentially they start to restrict their activities and limit their activities until many of them can’t leave their home without truly feeling considerable distress so if somebody like that is at home and they can connect through their computer system and connect to a counselor that’s a great first step is that going to cure them never since agoraphobia to be effectively dealt with needs that person to be able to go outdoors and to resume regular activities and sometimes that includes a therapist going to their house to help them with that procedure obviously online counselors are going to be able to do that however might they be the bridge that got that person who hesitates to leave their home from that preliminary helpful technique to counseling where they can really 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
