Better Help Journal – Try Now

When I was first approached…Better Help Journal…. to potentially collaborate with them on a youtube series one of the things that was actually essential to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I discussed what what topics I picked to provide and also you know my own views when when needed or appropriate to share them and I was given that by a they essentially 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 one of the things that I actually wanted to address is the truth that I’m not simply here to say that online therapy is the answer for whatever you understand I believe it can be exceptionally useful for many people I’ve seen it myself working with individuals from a few months approximately over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and also have video sessions with somebody is really a it

nearly enriches the the restorative experience in a manner at the same time I have a private practice where I see people 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 would not 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 alright those two things can both hold true and I think among the things that I wish to begin to have people consider is there’s a location for both offline and online treatment it is really a matter of you understand choosing what’s right for you but likewise what’s most suitable for you with the help of an expert when I discuss specific therapy designs or methods as being appropriate for you what I mean by that is that it would be the best technique for

the particular issue that you’re dealing with and I believe that a person 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 true I’ve had many conversations with the founder of where he has actually mentioned that his audience isn’t to compete with traditional practices or put psychologists or licensed professionals out of business his mission is to offer psychological health access to the people who aren’t going to come into the treatment workplace and I 100% support that objective and I believe it is very important and we have an issue with gain access to

to mental health care in this nation and is one solution as our other online companies I was pointing out earlier that there are things that I personally believe that online therapy is more appropriate for or offline treatment is better suited for and I’ve really I’ve actually discussed this in other settings because it is something I feel pretty passionate about and I need to say that my viewpoint has actually been well-received by companies like in terms of ideally how they how they work with the people that present for care so I simply wished to spend 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 place for people who are fighting with hard life shifts for scenarios where they’re experiencing more tension than regular for scenarios where you understand they have a very well-defined problem with anxiety or social 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 best for online therapy due to the fact that it includes a great deal of research it involves worksheets it includes discovering particular abilities and strategies so moderate milder disorders like moderate stress and anxiety mild depression change conditions even PTSD as long as like the person has actually received care at first in other places these are all things that can be resolved through online therapy you know think about someone who has a agoraphobia and perhaps they reach out to a therapist from their house due to the fact that they can’t leave their home and simply just to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where people are actually frightened of being trapped and caught in a location where they might have an anxiety attack therefore basically they start to limit their activities and restrict their activities up until a number of them can’t leave their house without truly feeling considerable distress so if somebody like that is at home and they can connect through their computer and connect to a therapist that’s an excellent primary step is that going to cure them absolutely not due to the fact that agoraphobia to be effectively dealt with requirements that individual to be able to go outdoors and to resume typical activities and sometimes that includes a therapist going to their house to help them with that procedure certainly online therapists are going to have the ability to do that but might they be the bridge that got that person who’s afraid to leave their home from that preliminary supportive technique to therapy where they can actually 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 plainly communicate that anything that I share with you is going to be fully from where I stand as an expert psychologist and more notably what I think is as simply a human being on this earth attempting to do the very best that I can and so I I won’t tell you that something is appropriate that I don’t believe is appropriate I will not show you that online counseling is the cure-all for whatever due to the fact that I do not think that and so you can constantly expect to hear my truthful opinion on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you found this video intriguing and helpful 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 range of different psychological health topics and please connect if there’s something particular you would like us to deal with or cover in an approaching video
