Better Help Commercial Online Today

When I was first approached…Better Help Commercial…. to perhaps work together with them on a youtube series one of the important things that was truly essential to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I spoke about what what subjects I selected to provide and also you understand my own views when when needed or appropriate to share them and I was approved that by a they generally said you know we trust you as a medical expert and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and discuss what you know and one of the important things that I actually wanted to address is the fact that I’m not simply here to say that online therapy is the answer for whatever you understand I believe it can be exceptionally practical for many people I’ve seen it myself working with people from a couple of months approximately over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and likewise have video sessions with somebody is actually a it

practically enriches the the therapeutic experience in a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see people in person and I thoroughly take pleasure in that and there are individuals that I see there that I would not think about 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 simply would not feel comfy and which’s alright those 2 things can both hold true and I think one of the things that I wish to start to have individuals think of is there’s a place for both offline and online therapy it is truly a matter of you understand deciding what’s right for you however likewise what’s most proper for you with the help of an expert when I talk about particular therapy styles or techniques as being appropriate for you what I imply by that is that it would be the very best method for

the particular problem that you’re dealing with and I believe that one of the concerns that a great deal of individuals have is that online counseling is attempting to replace offline counseling and I can inform you 100% that that’s not real I’ve had lots of discussions with the founder of where he has mentioned that his audience isn’t to take on brick and mortar practices or put psychologists or licensed specialists out of business his objective is to supply mental health access to the people who aren’t going to enter into the treatment workplace and I 100% assistance that objective and I believe it is necessary and we have an issue with access

to mental health care in this country and is one option as our other online companies I was pointing out earlier that there are things that I personally think that online treatment is better suited for or offline treatment is more appropriate for and I’ve in fact I’ve really spoken about this in other settings due to the fact that it is something I feel quite enthusiastic about and I need to say that my opinion has actually been well-received by business like in regards to hopefully how they how they deal with the people that provide for care so I simply wished to spend a number of minutes talking about my own is my own personal opinion about the important things that are most proper for online versus offline treatment so in my view I see online therapy as a terrific place for people who are battling with hard life transitions for circumstances where they’re experiencing more tension than regular for scenarios where you understand they have a really well-defined problem with anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is really structured can can benefit them and that therapy because it’s not as interpersonal as others is best for online therapy due to the fact that it includes a lot of homework it includes worksheets it includes discovering particular skills and techniques so moderate milder conditions like moderate anxiety mild depression adjustment conditions even PTSD as long as like the individual has gotten care at first somewhere else these are all things that can be dealt with through online counseling you know think about somebody who has a agoraphobia and maybe they reach out to a therapist from their house since they can’t leave their house and just just to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where people are really terrified of being trapped and trapped in a location where they may have an anxiety attack and so basically they begin to limit their activities and limit their activities up until a number of them can’t leave their home without really feeling significant distress so if someone like that is at house and they can reach out through their computer system and link to a counselor that’s an excellent first step is that going to cure them never because agoraphobia to be successfully treated needs that individual to be able to go outdoors and to resume normal activities and often that involves a therapist going to their home to help them with that process clearly online counselors are going to have the ability to do that however might they be the bridge that got that individual who hesitates to leave their house from that initial encouraging approach to therapy where they can in fact have a much better life 100% and this is what the space that aims to fill with their services my point to this to this particular video and bringing these

things up is that I I want to clearly communicate that anything that I show you is going to be fully from where I stand as an expert psychologist and more significantly what I believe is as just a human being on this earth trying to do the very best that I can therefore I I won’t tell you that something is appropriate that I do not think is appropriate I won’t share with you that online therapy is the cure-all for everything because I do not think that therefore you can always anticipate to hear my truthful opinion on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a licensed psychologist I hope you discovered this video practical and interesting if you did please like it listed below and do not hesitate to sign up for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing more and more videos on a range of different mental health subjects and please reach out if there’s something specific you would like us to address or cover in an upcoming video
