Betterhelp Wiki – Try Now

When I was first approached…Betterhelp Wiki…. to perhaps work together with them on a youtube series one of the things that was really crucial to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I talked about what what topics I picked to provide and also you know my own views when when necessary or appropriate to share them and I was approved that by a they essentially stated you understand we trust you as a scientific professional and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and discuss what you know and among the important things that I really wanted to address is the fact that I’m not just here to say that online therapy is the answer for whatever you know I think it can be extremely helpful for many people I’ve 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 actually a it

almost improves the the healing experience in a manner 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 individuals that I see there that I would not consider seeing online either they would not be appropriate we would not have the ability to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it simply wouldn’t feel comfortable and and that’s okay those two things can both hold true and I think among the things that I wish to begin to have people consider is there’s a place for both online and offline treatment it is really a matter of you understand deciding what’s right for you however also what’s most appropriate for you with the help of a professional when I talk about specific counseling styles or methods as being appropriate for you what I indicate by that is that it would be the very best approach for

the particular problem that you’re dealing with and I think that a person of the concerns that a lot of individuals have is that online therapy is trying to replace offline counseling and I can tell you 100% that that’s not true I have actually had lots of conversations with the founder of where he has discussed that his audience isn’t to take on physical practices or put psychologists or certified specialists out of business his objective is to supply mental health access to the people who aren’t going to enter into the therapy workplace and I 100% assistance that objective and I believe it’s important and we have an issue with gain access to

to mental health care in this country and is one solution as our other online companies I was mentioning previously that there are things that I personally think that online treatment is better suited for or offline treatment is better suited for and I’ve really I’ve actually spoken about this in other settings due to the fact that it is something I feel pretty enthusiastic about and I need to say that my viewpoint has been well-received by business like in regards to hopefully how they how they deal with individuals that present for care so I just wanted to invest a number of minutes talking about my own is my own personal opinion about the things that are most proper for online versus offline treatment so in my view I see online treatment as a fantastic place for individuals who are battling with tough life transitions for situations where they’re experiencing more tension than typical for situations where you know they have an extremely clear-cut issue with anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is very structured can can benefit them and that treatment due to the fact that it’s not as interpersonal as others is perfect for online counseling because it includes a lot of research it involves worksheets it includes discovering specific skills and techniques so mild milder disorders like moderate anxiety mild depression modification conditions even PTSD as long as like the person has gotten care at first somewhere else these are all things that can be resolved through online counseling you understand consider somebody who has a agoraphobia and possibly they connect to a counselor from their house since they can’t leave their home and just just to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where individuals are truly terrified of being trapped and caught in a place where they may have an anxiety attack and so essentially they start to limit their activities and limit their activities up until many of them can’t leave their house without really feeling substantial distress so if someone like that is at house and they can connect through their computer and connect to a counselor that’s an excellent initial step is that going to treat them never since agoraphobia to be effectively dealt with needs that person to be able to go outdoors and to resume normal activities and sometimes that involves a therapist going to their house to help them with that procedure certainly 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 home from that preliminary helpful technique to counseling where they can actually have a much better life 100% and this is what the gap 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 clearly communicate that anything that I share with 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 tell you that something is appropriate that I do not believe is appropriate I won’t show you that online counseling is the cure-all for whatever because I don’t believe that therefore you can always anticipate to hear my honest viewpoint on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you found this video interesting and helpful 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 more and more videos on a range of different psychological health subjects and please reach out if there’s something particular you would like us to resolve or cover in an upcoming video
