Better Help Kaiser – Try Now

When I was first approached…Better Help Kaiser…. to perhaps work together with them on a youtube series among the important things that was really important to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I spoke about what what topics I selected to present and also you know my own views when when necessary or appropriate to share them and I was granted that by a they generally stated you understand we trust you as a clinical professional and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and discuss what you know and among the important things that I actually wished to address is the fact that I’m not just here to say that online therapy is the answer for whatever you understand I believe it can be exceptionally handy for many individuals I have actually seen it myself dealing with individuals from a couple of months approximately over a year and I seen how being able to message and likewise have video sessions with someone is really a it

nearly improves the the therapeutic experience in a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals face-to-face and I completely delight in that and there are people that I see there that I would not think about seeing online either they wouldn’t be appropriate we would not be able to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it just would not feel comfy and which’s all right those 2 things can both hold true and I believe one of the things that I wish to begin to have people consider is there’s a place for both offline and online treatment it is really a matter of you know choosing what’s right for you but also what’s most proper for you with the help of an expert when I speak about certain counseling styles or methods as being appropriate for you what I indicate by that is that it would be the very best method for

the particular issue that you’re dealing with and I believe that a person of the issues that a great deal of individuals have is that online counseling is trying to replace offline therapy and I can tell you 100% that that’s not real I’ve had numerous conversations with the founder of where he has actually pointed out that his audience isn’t to compete with physical practices or put psychologists or licensed specialists out of business his objective is to provide psychological health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter into the therapy office and I 100% support that objective and I think it is very important and we have a problem with access

to psychological health care in this country and is one option as our other online companies I was mentioning previously that there are things that I personally believe that online therapy is better suited for or offline therapy is better suited for and I’ve in fact I’ve really discussed this in other settings due to the fact that it is something I feel quite enthusiastic about and I need to say that my opinion has actually been favored by business like in terms of ideally how they how they deal with the people that provide for care so I simply wanted to invest a number of minutes talking about my own is my own individual viewpoint about the things that are most suitable for offline versus online therapy so in my view I see online treatment as a wonderful location for individuals who are struggling with tough life shifts for circumstances where they’re experiencing more tension than typical for circumstances where you understand they have a very precise issue with anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is extremely structured can can benefit them and that treatment because it’s not as interpersonal as others is ideal for online counseling since it includes a lot of research it involves worksheets it involves finding out specific abilities and strategies so moderate milder conditions like moderate anxiety mild depression change disorders even PTSD as long as like the individual has gotten care initially somewhere else these are all things that can be attended to through online counseling you know think about someone who has a agoraphobia and maybe they reach out to a therapist from their house due to the fact that they can’t leave their house and simply simply to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where individuals are really terrified of being caught and trapped in a place where they may have a panic attack and so essentially they start to restrict their activities and restrict their activities till a number of them can’t leave their home without actually feeling considerable distress so if somebody like that is at home and they can reach out 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 successfully dealt with needs that individual to be able to go outside and to resume normal activities and in some cases that involves a therapist going to their home to help them with that procedure obviously online therapists are going to have the ability to do that but might they be the bridge that got that individual who hesitates to leave their home from that initial supportive method to therapy where they can really have a much better life 100% and this is what the space that aims to fill with their services my point to this to this particular video and bringing these

things up is that I I wish to plainly interact that anything that I show you is going to be fully from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more importantly what I believe is as simply 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 think is appropriate I won’t show you that online therapy is the cure-all for whatever because I do not think that therefore you can always anticipate to hear my honest viewpoint on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you found this video handy and interesting if you did please like it below and do not hesitate to register for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing increasingly more videos on a range of various mental health subjects and please reach out if there’s something specific you would like us to cover or deal with in an approaching video
