Betterhelp Ukraine – Try Now

When I was first approached…Betterhelp Ukraine…. to perhaps collaborate with them on a youtube series one of the things that was truly crucial to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I spoke about what what topics I picked to provide and also you know my own views when when essential or appropriate to share them and I was given that by a they essentially stated you know we trust you as a medical expert and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and speak about what you know and one of the things that I really wanted to address is the truth that I’m not simply here to state that online therapy is the answer for everything you understand I think it can be incredibly practical for many people I’ve seen it myself dealing with individuals from a couple of months approximately over a year and I seen how being able to message and likewise have video sessions with someone is really a it

nearly improves the the restorative experience in a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals face-to-face and I completely delight in that and there are people that I see there that I wouldn’t think about seeing online either they wouldn’t be appropriate we wouldn’t be able to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it simply wouldn’t feel comfortable and which’s all right those 2 things can both hold true and I believe among the important things that I want to begin to have individuals think about exists’s a location for both offline and online therapy it is truly a matter of you know deciding what’s right for you however also what’s most suitable for you with the help of a professional when I discuss particular counseling styles or techniques as being appropriate for you what I suggest by that is that it would be the very best approach for

the particular problem that you’re handling and I believe that one of the issues that a great deal of individuals have is that online therapy is trying to change offline counseling and I can inform you 100% that that’s not real I’ve had many discussions with the creator of where he has mentioned that his audience isn’t to compete with traditional practices or put psychologists or licensed experts out of business his objective is to supply psychological health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter into the therapy office and I 100% assistance that objective and I think it is necessary and we have a problem with access

to mental health care in this country and is one option as our other online business I was pointing out earlier that there are things that I personally believe that online therapy is better suited for or offline treatment is better suited for and I’ve actually I’ve actually 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 business like in terms of ideally how they how they deal with individuals that present for care so I simply wished to spend a number of minutes talking about my own is my own individual viewpoint about the things that are most appropriate for online versus offline treatment so in my view I see online therapy as a terrific place for individuals who are having problem with tough life shifts for scenarios where they’re experiencing more stress than typical for circumstances where you understand they have an extremely specific problem with anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is very structured can can benefit them which treatment because it’s not as social as others is best for online counseling since it includes a lot of research it includes worksheets it includes finding out specific skills and techniques so mild milder disorders like moderate anxiety mild depression change conditions even PTSD as long as like the person has actually received care at first in other places these are all things that can be attended to through online counseling you understand think of somebody who has a agoraphobia and perhaps they reach out to a therapist from their house since they can’t leave their house and just just to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where people are really frightened of being caught and caught in a location where they may have an anxiety attack therefore essentially they start to limit their activities and restrict their activities until much of them can’t leave their home without actually feeling considerable distress so if somebody like that is at home and they can reach out through their computer system and link to a therapist that’s a great initial step is that going to cure them absolutely not because agoraphobia to be successfully dealt with requirements 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 process undoubtedly online counselors are going to have the ability to do that but could they be the bridge that got that individual who’s afraid to leave their house from that initial supportive method to counseling where they can really 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 wish to plainly interact that anything that I show you is going to be totally from where I stand as an expert 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 inform you that something is appropriate that I don’t think is appropriate I won’t share with you that online therapy is the cure-all for everything because I don’t believe that and so you can constantly expect to hear my honest viewpoint on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you discovered this video interesting and practical 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 range of various mental health subjects and please reach out if there’s something particular you would like us to attend to or cover in an approaching video
