Better Vs Improve – Try Now

When I was first approached…Better Vs Improve…. to perhaps team up 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 discussed what what topics I chose to present and likewise you understand my own views when when necessary or appropriate to share them and I was approved that by a they basically said you know we trust you as a scientific professional and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and talk about what you understand and one of the important things that I really wanted to address is the reality that I’m not just here to state that online therapy is the answer for everything you know I think it can be incredibly useful for many people I have actually seen it myself working with individuals from a few months approximately over a year and I seen how being able to message and also have video sessions with someone is really a it

almost improves the the restorative experience in such a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals face-to-face and I completely take pleasure in that and there are individuals that I see there that I wouldn’t think about seeing online either they would not be appropriate we would not be able to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it just would not feel comfortable and and that’s all right those 2 things can both hold true and I believe one of the important things that I want to start to have people consider is there’s a location for both offline and online treatment it is truly a matter of you understand choosing what’s right for you but likewise what’s most appropriate for you with the help of an expert when I speak about specific therapy designs or methods as being appropriate for you what I imply by that is that it would be the best approach for

the particular problem that you’re dealing with and I think that one of the concerns that a great deal of individuals have is that online therapy is trying to replace offline counseling and I can inform you 100% that that’s not real I have actually had lots of conversations with the creator of where he has actually mentioned that his audience isn’t to take on physical practices or put psychologists or licensed professionals out of business his mission is to offer mental health access to individuals who aren’t going to come into the therapy workplace and I 100% support that mission and I believe it is essential and we have an issue with gain access to

to psychological healthcare in this country and is one service as our other online business I was pointing out earlier that there are things that I personally believe that online therapy is better for or offline treatment is more appropriate for and I’ve really I’ve really discussed this in other settings since it is something I feel pretty passionate about and I need to say that my viewpoint has been favored by companies like in terms of ideally how they how they deal with individuals that present for care so I simply wanted to spend a number of minutes talking about my own is my own personal viewpoint about the things that are most appropriate for offline versus online treatment so in my view I see online therapy as a terrific location for people who are battling with hard life shifts for situations where they’re experiencing more tension than regular for circumstances where you know they have an extremely specific concern with anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is really structured can can benefit them which treatment due to the fact that it’s not as social as others is perfect for online therapy because it involves a lot of homework it involves worksheets it includes finding out particular skills and techniques so mild milder disorders like moderate anxiety mild depression adjustment disorders even PTSD as long as like the individual has actually received care at first elsewhere these are all things that can be dealt with through online therapy you understand think of 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 simply to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where individuals are truly terrified of being caught and caught in a location where they might have a panic attack and so basically they start to restrict their activities and restrict their activities until many of them can’t leave their house without truly feeling considerable distress so if somebody like that is at house and they can connect through their computer system and link to a counselor that’s a fantastic initial step is that going to cure them absolutely not due to the fact that agoraphobia to be effectively treated requirements that person to be able to go outdoors and to resume typical activities and sometimes that involves a therapist going to their home to help them with that process clearly online counselors are going to have the ability to do that but could they be the bridge that got that individual who hesitates to leave their house from that initial supportive approach to therapy where they can in fact have a better life 100% and this is what the gap that intends to fill with their services my indicate this to this particular video and bringing these

things up is that I I wish to clearly communicate that anything that I share with you is going to be completely from where I stand as an expert psychologist and more significantly what I think is as simply a human being on this earth attempting to do the best that I can and so I I won’t tell you that something is appropriate that I do not believe is appropriate I won’t share with you that online therapy is the cure-all for everything due to the fact that I don’t believe that therefore you can constantly anticipate to hear my sincere opinion on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a licensed psychologist I hope you discovered this video interesting and handy if you did please like it listed below and feel free to sign up for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing more and more videos on a range of different mental health topics and please connect if there’s something particular you would like us to cover or address in an upcoming video
