Betterhelp Video Therapy – Try Now

When I was first approached…Betterhelp Video Therapy…. to perhaps team up with them on a youtube series among the things that was truly important to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I talked about what what subjects I selected to provide and also you understand my own views when when necessary or appropriate to share them and I was granted that by a they basically said you know we trust you as a clinical professional and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and discuss what you know and among the things that I actually wanted to address is the reality that I’m not just here to state that online therapy is the answer for whatever you know I think it can be exceptionally helpful for many individuals I’ve seen it myself working with individuals from a few months up to over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and also have video sessions with someone is really a it

almost enhances the the therapeutic 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 individuals that I see there that I wouldn’t think about seeing online either they would not be appropriate we wouldn’t be able to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it just would not feel comfy and and that’s fine those two things can both hold true and I believe among the important things that I wish to start to have people think of is there’s a location for both online and offline treatment it is truly a matter of you understand deciding what’s right for you however likewise what’s most suitable for you with the help of an expert when I discuss particular counseling styles or techniques as being appropriate for you what I mean by that is that it would be the best method for

the particular problem that you’re dealing with and I believe that a person of the issues that a lot of people have is that online therapy is trying to replace offline therapy and I can inform you 100% that that’s not true I have actually had numerous conversations with the creator of where he has discussed that his audience isn’t to take on brick and mortar practices or put psychologists or certified professionals out of business his mission is to supply psychological health access to the people who aren’t going to enter the therapy office and I 100% support that objective and I think it is necessary and we have an issue with gain access to

to mental healthcare in this country and is one service as our other online business I was mentioning earlier that there are things that I personally believe that online therapy is better for or offline treatment is better for and I’ve in fact I’ve really spoken about this in other settings since it is something I feel quite enthusiastic about and I have to say that my opinion has been well-received by business like in regards to hopefully how they how they deal with individuals that provide for care so I just wanted to invest a number of minutes discussing my own is my own individual viewpoint about the important things that are most appropriate for offline versus online therapy so in my view I see online treatment as a fantastic place for people who are struggling with tough life shifts for circumstances where they’re experiencing more stress than typical for scenarios where you know they have a very well-defined issue with stress and anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is really structured can can benefit them and that treatment since it’s not as interpersonal as others is ideal for online therapy due to the fact that it involves a lot of research it involves worksheets it includes finding out particular abilities and techniques so mild milder disorders like mild anxiety mild depression change disorders even PTSD as long as like the person has received care initially in other places these are all things that can be dealt with through online counseling you know think of someone who has a agoraphobia and perhaps they connect to a therapist from their house since they can’t leave their home and just just to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where people are actually terrified of being trapped and caught in a place where they may have a panic attack and so basically they start to restrict their activities and restrict their activities up until a lot of them can’t leave their home without really feeling significant distress so if somebody like that is at home and they can connect through their computer and connect to a therapist that’s a great first step is that going to cure them never because agoraphobia to be successfully dealt with needs that person to be able to go outdoors and to resume regular activities and often that includes a therapist going to their home to help them with that process 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 house from that preliminary helpful approach to counseling where they can actually have a better life 100% and this is what the gap that aims to fill with their services my indicate this to this specific video and bringing these

things up is that I I want to clearly interact that anything that I show you is going to be fully 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 and so I I won’t inform you that something is appropriate that I do not believe is appropriate I will not share with you that online counseling is the cure-all for everything due to the fact that I do not think that and so you can always anticipate to hear my truthful opinion on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a licensed psychologist I hope you found this video helpful and intriguing if you did please like it listed below and do not hesitate to register for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing a growing number of videos on a variety of different mental health subjects and please reach out if there’s something specific you would like us to cover or resolve in an approaching video
