Betterhelp Unethical – Try Now

When I was first approached…Betterhelp Unethical…. to potentially work together with them on a youtube series one of the things that was truly important to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I discussed what what subjects I chose to present and likewise you understand my own views when when necessary or appropriate to share them and I was granted that by a they essentially stated you know we trust you as a clinical professional and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and talk about what you know and one of the important things that I truly wished to address is the reality that I’m not just here to state that online therapy is the answer for everything you understand I think it can be exceptionally handy for lots of people I have actually seen it myself working with people from a couple of months as much as over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and likewise have video sessions with someone is truly a it

practically enriches the the healing experience in a manner at the same time I have a private practice where I see people in person 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 would not be able to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it just would not feel comfy and which’s alright those two things can both be true and I think one of the things that I want to start to have people consider is there’s a place for both online and offline 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 a professional when I discuss specific therapy designs or techniques as being appropriate for you what I suggest by that is that it would be the best approach for

the particular issue that you’re dealing with and I think that one of the issues that a great deal of individuals have is that online therapy is trying to change offline therapy and I can inform you 100% that that’s not real I have actually had lots of discussions 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 licensed experts out of business his mission is to offer psychological health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter into the treatment office and I 100% support that objective and I think it’s important and we have a problem with gain access to

to mental health care in this country and is one service as our other online business I was mentioning previously that there are things that I personally think that online therapy is better for or offline therapy is more appropriate for and I’ve really I’ve actually spoken about this in other settings since it is something I feel pretty enthusiastic about and I need to say that my opinion has actually been well-received by companies like in terms of ideally how they how they deal with the people that present for care so I just wanted to invest a number of minutes speaking about my own is my own personal viewpoint about the important things that are most suitable for offline versus online treatment so in my view I see online therapy as a fantastic location for people who are fighting with hard life shifts for scenarios where they’re experiencing more tension than normal for situations where you know they have a very well-defined problem with stress and anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is really structured can can benefit them which therapy since it’s not as interpersonal as others is ideal for online counseling due to the fact that it involves a lot of homework it includes worksheets it includes discovering specific skills and techniques so moderate milder disorders like mild stress and anxiety mild depression modification conditions even PTSD as long as like the person has received care initially elsewhere these are all things that can be resolved through online therapy you know consider someone who has a agoraphobia and maybe they connect to a therapist from their home due to the fact that they can’t leave their home and just just to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where people are truly horrified of being caught and caught in a location where they might have an anxiety attack therefore essentially they start to restrict their activities and restrict their activities up until a number 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 an excellent primary step is that going to cure them absolutely not because agoraphobia to be successfully dealt with needs that individual to be able to go outdoors and to resume typical activities and sometimes that includes a therapist going to their house to help them with that procedure obviously online counselors are going to have the ability to do that but might they be the bridge that got that person who’s afraid to leave their home from that preliminary encouraging approach to therapy where they can in fact have a better life 100% and this is what the space that aims to fill with their services my point to this to this specific 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 a professional psychologist and more notably what I believe 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 don’t believe is appropriate I won’t show you that online counseling is the cure-all for whatever because I don’t think that and so you can always expect to hear my honest opinion on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you found this video valuable and intriguing if you did please like it below and feel free to subscribe to our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing increasingly more videos on a variety of different mental health subjects and please connect if there’s something specific you would like us to resolve or cover in an upcoming video
