Better Help Us – Try Now

When I was first approached…Better Help Us…. to possibly work together with them on a youtube series among the important 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 also you know my own views when when essential or appropriate to share them and I was approved that by a they essentially said you understand we trust you as a clinical professional and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and discuss what you understand and among the important things that I actually wanted to address is the reality that I’m not simply here to state that online therapy is the answer for whatever you know I believe it can be extremely helpful for many individuals I have actually seen it myself working with people from a few months as much as over a year and I seen how being able to message and also have video sessions with someone is actually a it

practically enriches the the healing experience in a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see people face-to-face and I completely enjoy that and there are individuals that I see there that I wouldn’t 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 wouldn’t feel comfy and and that’s fine those 2 things can both hold true and I believe among the things that I wish to begin to have people consider is there’s a place for both online and offline therapy it is truly a matter of you know deciding what’s right for you however also what’s most appropriate for you with the help of an expert when I speak about particular counseling designs or approaches as being appropriate for you what I suggest by that is that it would be the best method for

the particular issue that you’re handling and I think that one of the concerns that a lot of people have is that online counseling is attempting to replace offline therapy and I can inform you 100% that that’s not real I’ve had numerous discussions with the founder of where he has actually mentioned that his audience isn’t to take on physical practices or put psychologists or certified experts out of business his objective is to supply mental health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter into the therapy workplace and I 100% support that objective and I believe it is essential and we have an issue with access

to psychological health care in this nation and is one option as our other online companies I was mentioning earlier that there are things that I personally think that online therapy is more appropriate for or offline treatment is better suited for and I’ve in fact I’ve really spoken about this in other settings because it is something I feel pretty passionate about and I have to state that my viewpoint has actually been favored by companies like in terms of ideally how they how they deal with the people that present for care so I simply wanted to spend a couple of minutes discussing my own is my own individual 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 hard life transitions for scenarios where they’re experiencing more tension than regular 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 really structured can can benefit them and that therapy due to the fact that it’s not as interpersonal as others is best for online therapy since it includes a great deal of research it includes worksheets it includes learning particular skills and methods so mild milder disorders like moderate anxiety mild depression modification conditions even PTSD as long as like the person has gotten care initially somewhere else these are all things that can be addressed through online therapy you understand think of someone who has a agoraphobia and maybe they reach out to a counselor from their home since they can’t leave their house and just just to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where people are really frightened of being trapped and trapped in a place where they may have an anxiety attack therefore basically they begin to restrict their activities and restrict their activities until many of them can’t leave their home without truly feeling significant distress so if someone like that is at house and they can reach out through their computer system and connect to a counselor that’s a terrific first step is that going to treat them absolutely not due to the fact that agoraphobia to be successfully dealt with needs that individual to be able to go outdoors and to resume normal activities and in some cases that includes a therapist going to their home to help them with that procedure undoubtedly online therapists are going to be able to do that however could they be the bridge that got that individual who’s afraid to leave their home from that initial 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 point to this to this specific 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 just a human being on this earth attempting to do the best that I can therefore I I won’t tell you that something is appropriate that I do not think is appropriate I won’t show you that online therapy is the cure-all for everything due to the fact that I do not believe that and so you can constantly anticipate to hear my sincere opinion on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a licensed psychologist I hope you discovered this video fascinating and useful if you did please like it listed 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 reach out if there’s something particular you would like us to address or cover in an upcoming video
