Better Help No Show – Try Now

When I was first approached…Better Help No Show…. to possibly collaborate with them on a youtube series one of the important things that was really crucial to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I talked about what what topics I chose to present and also you understand my own views when when essential or appropriate to share them and I was approved that by a they basically said you know we trust you as a scientific 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 simply here to state that online treatment is the answer for whatever you understand I think it can be extremely helpful for many people I’ve seen it myself working with individuals from a couple of months as much as over a year and I seen how being able to message and likewise have video sessions with someone is truly a it

nearly enriches the the healing experience in such a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals in person and I thoroughly take pleasure in that and there are people that I see there that I would not think about 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 simply would not feel comfortable and and that’s all right those two things can both be 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 therapy it is truly a matter of you know deciding what’s right for you but also what’s most suitable for you with the help of an expert when I talk about specific therapy styles 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 believe that one of the concerns that a great deal of people have is that online therapy is trying to change offline therapy and I can inform you 100% that that’s not true I’ve had numerous discussions with the creator of where he has discussed that his audience isn’t to take on traditional practices or put psychologists or certified professionals out of business his objective is to offer mental health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter the therapy office and I 100% support that objective and I believe it’s important and we have a problem with access

to mental health care in this nation and is one option as our other online business I was discussing earlier that there are things that I personally believe that online therapy is better for or offline therapy is better suited for and I’ve really I’ve in fact spoken about this in other settings since it is something I feel pretty passionate about and I need to state that my opinion has actually been favored by business like in terms of hopefully how they how they work with the people that provide for care so I simply wished to spend a number of minutes speaking about my own is my own individual opinion about the important things that are most proper for offline versus online therapy so in my view I see online treatment as a terrific location for people who are dealing with difficult life shifts for circumstances where they’re experiencing more tension than typical for situations where you know they have an extremely well-defined issue with anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is extremely structured can can benefit them which therapy due to the fact that it’s not as interpersonal as others is best for online therapy due to the fact that it involves a lot of homework it involves worksheets it involves discovering particular abilities and methods so mild milder conditions like mild anxiety mild depression modification conditions even PTSD as long as like the person has gotten care at first elsewhere these are all things that can be resolved through online therapy you understand consider 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 just just to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where individuals are actually horrified of being caught and trapped in a location where they might have a panic attack and so basically they start to limit their activities and restrict their activities up until a lot of them can’t leave their home without really 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 a fantastic first step is that going to treat them never since agoraphobia to be successfully dealt with requirements that individual to be able to go outdoors and to resume typical 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 might they be the bridge that got that person who hesitates to leave their house from that initial supportive technique to counseling where they can in fact have a much 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 interact that anything that I share with you is going to be fully from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more significantly what I think is as simply a human being on this earth trying to do the very best that I can therefore I I won’t inform you that something is appropriate that I do not think is appropriate I won’t share with you that online therapy is the cure-all for whatever due to the fact that I don’t think that and so you can always anticipate to hear my truthful opinion on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a licensed psychologist I hope you found this video valuable and interesting if you did please like it below and feel free to subscribe to our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing a growing number of videos on a variety of different mental health subjects and please connect if there’s something particular you would like us to address or cover in an upcoming video
