Better Than Effective – Try Now

When I was first approached…Better Than Effective…. to possibly work together with them on a youtube series among the important things that was really essential to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I talked about what what topics I selected to present and also you know my own views when when needed or appropriate to share them and I was approved that by a they basically stated you know we trust you as a scientific expert and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and speak about what you understand and among the things that I truly wished to address is the fact that I’m not simply here to say that online therapy is the answer for everything you understand I think it can be exceptionally useful for many people I have actually seen it myself dealing with individuals from a couple of months as much as over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and also have video sessions with somebody is actually a it

nearly enhances the the restorative experience in such a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals in person and I completely take pleasure in that and there are individuals that I see there that I would not consider 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 just would not feel comfortable and which’s all right those 2 things can both hold true and I believe among the things that I want to begin to have individuals consider is there’s a location for both offline and online therapy it is truly a matter of you know deciding what’s right for you but likewise what’s most appropriate for you with the help of an expert when I talk about certain counseling styles or approaches as being appropriate for you what I suggest by that is that it would be the best technique for

the particular issue that you’re handling and I think that a person of the issues that a lot of individuals have is that online therapy is trying to change offline counseling and I can tell you 100% that that’s not true I have actually had many discussions with the creator of where he has pointed out that his audience isn’t to compete with brick and mortar practices or put psychologists or licensed professionals 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 objective and I believe it is necessary and we have a problem with access

to psychological health care in this country and is one solution as our other online companies I was discussing previously that there are things that I personally think that online therapy is more appropriate for or offline treatment is more appropriate for and I’ve in fact I’ve in fact spoken about this in other settings since it is something I feel quite enthusiastic about and I have to state that my viewpoint has actually been popular by companies like in regards to ideally how they how they deal with the people that present for care so I just wished to spend a couple of minutes discussing my own is my own personal opinion about the things that are most suitable for online versus offline therapy so in my view I see online therapy as a terrific place for individuals who are battling with challenging life transitions for situations where they’re experiencing more tension than regular for scenarios where you know they have an extremely well-defined problem with stress and anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is really structured can can benefit them which therapy since it’s not as social as others is best for online therapy due to the fact that it involves a lot of homework it includes worksheets it involves learning particular skills and techniques so mild milder conditions like mild stress and anxiety mild depression adjustment disorders even PTSD as long as like the individual has received care initially in other places these are all things that can be resolved through online therapy you understand consider somebody who has a agoraphobia and possibly they connect to a counselor from their house due to the fact that they can’t leave their home and just simply to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where individuals are truly frightened of being caught and caught in a location where they may have a panic attack therefore basically they start to restrict their activities and restrict their activities till much of them can’t leave their home without actually feeling significant distress so if somebody like that is at house and they can connect through their computer and link to a counselor that’s a fantastic first step is that going to treat them absolutely not because agoraphobia to be effectively treated needs that individual to be able to go outside and to resume normal activities and in some cases that includes a therapist going to their home to help them with that procedure certainly online counselors are going to be able to do that however could they be the bridge that got that individual who hesitates to leave their home from that preliminary supportive method 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 communicate that anything that I share with you is going to be completely from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more notably what I believe is as simply a human being on this earth trying to do the very best that I can and so I I won’t tell you that something is appropriate that I do not think is appropriate I will not share with you that online therapy is the cure-all for whatever because I don’t believe that therefore you can constantly anticipate to hear my honest opinion on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you discovered this video fascinating and handy if you did please like it listed below and feel free to subscribe to our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing increasingly more videos on a variety of various mental health subjects and please connect if there’s something specific you would like us to cover or deal with in an upcoming video
