Better Help Careers Online Today

When I was first approached…Better Help Careers…. to possibly collaborate with them on a youtube series one of the things that was really essential to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I spoke about what what subjects I selected to present and also you know my own views when when needed or appropriate to share them and I was granted that by a they generally said you know we trust you as a medical professional and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and speak about what you know and one of the things that I really wanted to address is the fact that I’m not simply here to say that online treatment is the answer for everything you understand I think it can be extremely handy for many people I have actually seen it myself working with people from a few months approximately over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and also have video sessions with somebody is really a it

practically enhances the the therapeutic experience in a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see people 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 would not be appropriate we would not be able to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it just wouldn’t feel comfortable and which’s fine those two things can both hold true and I believe among the things that I wish to start to have individuals think of exists’s a location for both online and offline therapy it is truly a matter of you understand choosing what’s right for you however likewise what’s most suitable for you with the help of an expert when I speak about certain counseling styles or methods as being appropriate for you what I mean by that is that it would be the very best method for

the particular issue that you’re handling and I think that one of the issues that a great deal of people have is that online therapy is trying to change offline counseling and I can tell you 100% that that’s not true I have actually had numerous conversations with the founder of where he has actually discussed that his audience isn’t to take on brick and mortar practices or put psychologists or certified specialists out of business his mission is to offer mental health access to the people who aren’t going to come into the therapy workplace and I 100% assistance that objective and I think it’s important and we have a problem with access

to psychological health care in this country and is one service as our other online business I was pointing out previously that there are things that I personally believe that online treatment is better suited for or offline treatment is better for and I’ve in fact I’ve really discussed this in other settings due to the fact that it is something I feel quite passionate about and I have to say that my viewpoint has been well-received by companies like in terms of ideally how they how they work with individuals that provide for care so I just wanted to spend a number of minutes discussing my own is my own personal viewpoint about the things that are most proper for offline versus online therapy so in my view I see online treatment as a fantastic place for individuals who are dealing with tough life shifts for circumstances where they’re experiencing more tension than typical for scenarios where you know they have a really clear-cut concern with stress and anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is really structured can can benefit them and that treatment due to the fact that it’s not as social as others is perfect for online therapy due to the fact that it involves a lot of research it involves worksheets it includes learning specific skills and methods so mild milder disorders like moderate anxiety mild depression modification disorders even PTSD as long as like the individual has actually received care at first elsewhere these are all things that can be attended to through online counseling you know think about someone who has a agoraphobia and maybe they connect to a therapist from their home since they can’t leave their home and just just to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where individuals are really frightened of being trapped and trapped in a location where they may have a panic attack and so basically they start to limit their activities and limit their activities till a lot of them can’t leave their house without actually feeling considerable distress so if someone like that is at house and they can reach out through their computer and link to a therapist that’s a great first step is that going to cure them absolutely not since agoraphobia to be effectively dealt with requirements that individual to be able to go outside and to resume regular activities and sometimes that includes a therapist going to their house to help them with that procedure obviously online therapists are going to be able to do that however might they be the bridge that got that individual who hesitates to leave their home from that preliminary supportive method to counseling where they can in fact have a much better life 100% and this is what the space that intends to fill with their services my point to this to this particular video and bringing these

things up is that I I wish to plainly communicate that anything that I show you is going to be fully from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more notably what I think is as just a human being on this earth attempting to do the very best that I can and so I I won’t tell you that something is appropriate that I don’t think is appropriate I won’t share with you that online counseling is the cure-all for everything because I don’t believe that and so you can constantly anticipate to hear my truthful opinion on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you found this video interesting and valuable if you did please like it below and do not hesitate to subscribe to our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing a growing number of videos on a range of different psychological health subjects and please connect if there’s something particular you would like us to resolve or cover in an upcoming video
