Betterhelp Questions – Try Now

When I was first approached…Betterhelp Questions…. to potentially team up with them on a youtube series one of the important things that was truly crucial to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I talked about what what subjects I chose to present and likewise you understand my own views when when needed or appropriate to share them and I was approved that by a they generally said you understand we trust you as a clinical professional and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and discuss what you understand and among the things that I actually wanted to address is the truth that I’m not simply here to say that online treatment is the answer for everything you understand I believe it can be extremely valuable for many people I’ve seen it myself working with individuals from a couple of months up to over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and likewise have video sessions with someone is really a it

almost enriches the the healing experience in such a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see people face-to-face and I thoroughly delight in that and there are people that I see there that I wouldn’t consider seeing online either they wouldn’t be appropriate we wouldn’t have the ability to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it just would not feel comfortable and and that’s fine those 2 things can both be true and I think among the things that I want to begin to have individuals consider exists’s a place for both offline and online treatment it is truly a matter of you understand deciding what’s right for you however also what’s most suitable for you with the help of a professional when I talk about certain counseling designs or techniques as being appropriate for you what I mean by that is that it would be the very best technique for

the particular problem that you’re handling and I believe that a person of the concerns that a lot of people have is that online therapy is attempting to replace offline counseling and I can tell you 100% that that’s not real I have actually had lots of conversations with the founder of where he has actually pointed out that his audience isn’t to take on brick and mortar practices or put psychologists or certified professionals out of business his objective is to provide mental health access to individuals who aren’t going to come into the therapy office and I 100% support that mission and I think it is very important and we have an issue with access

to psychological healthcare in this nation and is one solution as our other online companies I was mentioning earlier that there are things that I personally believe that online treatment is better suited for or offline therapy is more appropriate for and I’ve actually I’ve actually spoken about this in other settings since it is something I feel pretty enthusiastic about and I have to state that my opinion has been well-received by business like in terms of hopefully how they how they work with individuals that present for care so I just wished to invest a couple of minutes speaking about my own is my own individual viewpoint about the important things that are most suitable for online versus offline treatment so in my view I see online treatment as a terrific place for people who are dealing with tough life shifts for circumstances where they’re experiencing more tension than normal for situations where you understand they have a really precise issue with anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is very structured can can benefit them which treatment since it’s not as interpersonal as others is ideal for online counseling since it includes a lot of research it includes worksheets it involves discovering particular abilities and methods so mild milder disorders like mild anxiety mild depression adjustment disorders even PTSD as long as like the individual has gotten care initially somewhere else these are all things that can be addressed through online counseling you know consider somebody who has a agoraphobia and maybe they connect to a therapist from their house since they can’t leave their home and simply just to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where people are really terrified of being trapped and caught in a place where they might have an anxiety attack therefore basically they start to restrict their activities and restrict their activities till many of them can’t leave their home without actually feeling considerable distress so if someone like that is at house and they can connect through their computer system and connect to a counselor that’s a great first step is that going to cure them never because agoraphobia to be effectively dealt with requirements that person to be able to go outside and to resume normal activities and sometimes that involves a therapist going to their house to help them with that process obviously online counselors are going to have the ability to do that but might they be the bridge that got that individual who’s afraid to leave their home from that preliminary supportive technique to therapy where they can actually have a much better life 100% and this is what the space that aims to fill with their services my indicate this to this particular video and bringing these

things up is that I I want 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 trying to do the very best that I can therefore I I won’t inform you that something is appropriate that I don’t believe 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 always expect to hear my sincere viewpoint on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a licensed psychologist I hope you found this video practical and intriguing 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 more and more videos on a range of different psychological health subjects and please connect if there’s something specific you would like us to cover or resolve in an upcoming video
