Better Help Financial Aid – Try Now

When I was first approached…Better Help Financial Aid…. to possibly collaborate with them on a youtube series among the things that was really important to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I spoke about what what subjects I picked to present and likewise you know my own views when when needed or appropriate to share them and I was approved that by a they essentially said you know we trust you as a clinical professional and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and discuss what you know and one of the important things that I really wanted to address is the reality that I’m not simply here to say that online treatment is the answer for everything you know I think it can be extremely useful for many people I’ve seen it myself dealing with individuals from a few months as much as over a year and I seen how being able to message and likewise have video sessions with somebody is really a it

nearly enhances the the therapeutic experience in such a way 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 individuals that I see there that I would not think about seeing online either they wouldn’t 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 and that’s fine those 2 things can both be true and I believe among the things that I wish to begin to have people think about exists’s a location for both offline and online treatment it is truly a matter of you know choosing what’s right for you however likewise what’s most appropriate for you with the help of a professional when I discuss particular therapy designs or techniques as being appropriate for you what I imply by that is that it would be the very best technique for

the particular problem that you’re handling and I think that one of the issues that a lot of people have is that online therapy is attempting to replace offline therapy and I can inform you 100% that that’s not real I’ve had lots of conversations with the founder of where he has pointed out that his audience isn’t to take on physical practices or put psychologists or licensed experts out of business his mission is to offer mental 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 access

to mental health care in this country and is one service as our other online companies I was discussing previously that there are things that I personally believe that online therapy is better suited for or offline treatment is more appropriate for and I’ve actually I’ve in fact discussed this in other settings since it is something I feel pretty passionate about and I have to state that my opinion has been favored by business like in terms of hopefully how they how they work with individuals that provide for care so I simply wanted to invest a couple of minutes talking about my own is my own individual opinion about the important things that are most suitable for online versus offline treatment so in my view I see online therapy as a fantastic place for people who are dealing with tough life transitions for scenarios where they’re experiencing more stress than typical for scenarios where you know they have a very well-defined problem with 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 therapy since it includes a lot of homework it includes worksheets it includes learning particular skills and strategies so mild milder conditions like moderate stress and anxiety mild depression change disorders even PTSD as long as like the individual has actually gotten care initially elsewhere these are all things that can be resolved through online counseling you know think of someone who has a agoraphobia and maybe they connect to a counselor from their house because they can’t leave their house and simply simply to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where individuals are really frightened of being caught and caught in a location where they might have an anxiety attack and so basically they begin to restrict their activities and limit their activities up until a lot of them can’t leave their home without truly feeling considerable distress so if someone like that is at home and they can reach out through their computer system and link to a counselor that’s a terrific first step is that going to treat them absolutely not since agoraphobia to be effectively treated needs that person to be able to go outside and to resume regular activities and often that includes a therapist going to their house to help them with that procedure clearly online therapists are going to be able to do that however might they be the bridge that got that person who’s afraid to leave their house from that initial supportive approach 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 specific video and bringing these

things up is that I I want to plainly interact that anything that I share with you is going to be fully from where I stand as an expert psychologist and more importantly what I think is as just a human being on this earth trying to do the best that I can therefore I I will not tell you that something is appropriate that I don’t believe is appropriate I won’t show you that online therapy is the cure-all for everything since I don’t think that therefore you can always anticipate to hear my sincere opinion on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you found this video practical and intriguing 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 more and more videos on a variety of different mental health subjects and please connect if there’s something specific you would like us to deal with or cover in an approaching video
