Better Help Kritik Online Today

When I was first approached…Better Help Kritik…. to perhaps team up with them on a youtube series one of the important things that was really important to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I spoke about what what topics I picked to present and likewise you understand my own views when when necessary or appropriate to share them and I was given that by a they basically said you know we trust you as a medical professional and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and talk about what you understand and one of the things that I really wished to address is the fact that I’m not simply here to state that online therapy is the answer for whatever you know I believe it can be exceptionally valuable for many individuals I’ve seen it myself dealing with individuals from a couple of months as much as over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and also have video sessions with someone is truly a it

practically enhances the the restorative experience in a manner at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals in person and I thoroughly enjoy that and there are individuals that I see there that I would not consider seeing online either they wouldn’t 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 alright those 2 things can both hold true and I think among the things that I want to begin to have individuals think about exists’s a place for both online and offline therapy it is really a matter of you understand choosing what’s right for you however likewise what’s most appropriate for you with the help of a professional when I speak about specific therapy designs 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 handling and I think that one of the concerns that a great deal of people have is that online therapy is attempting to change offline counseling and I can tell you 100% that that’s not true I’ve had lots of discussions with the creator of where he has actually discussed that his audience isn’t to compete with brick and mortar practices or put psychologists or certified specialists out of business his mission is to supply mental health access to individuals who aren’t going to come into the treatment office and I 100% support that objective and I believe it’s important and we have a problem with access

to psychological health care in this country and is one solution as our other online business I was discussing earlier that there are things that I personally believe that online therapy is more appropriate for or offline treatment is better suited for and I’ve actually I’ve really spoken about this in other settings since it is something I feel quite passionate about and I have to say that my opinion has actually been popular by companies like in regards to hopefully how they how they work with the people that present for care so I simply wanted to spend a couple of minutes speaking about my own is my own individual viewpoint about the important things that are most proper for online versus offline treatment so in my view I see online therapy as a terrific location for people who are having problem with hard life shifts for situations where they’re experiencing more stress than regular for situations where you know they have a very precise problem with 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 interpersonal as others is ideal for online counseling since it includes a lot of homework it involves worksheets it involves learning specific skills and methods so mild milder conditions like mild anxiety mild depression change disorders even PTSD as long as like the individual has gotten care at first in other places these are all things that can be dealt with through online therapy you know think of someone who has a agoraphobia and perhaps they reach out to a therapist from their house due to the fact that they can’t leave their house and just simply to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where individuals are actually frightened of being trapped and trapped in a place where they might have a panic attack and so essentially they begin to restrict their activities and limit their activities up until many of them can’t leave their house without truly feeling considerable distress so if someone like that is at home and they can connect through their computer and link to a counselor that’s a great initial step is that going to cure them absolutely not because agoraphobia to be successfully dealt with requirements 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 certainly online counselors are going to be able to do that but might they be the bridge that got that individual who’s afraid to leave their house from that initial encouraging technique to therapy 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 indicate this to this specific video and bringing these

things up is that I I want to clearly interact that anything that I share with you is going to be fully from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more importantly what I think is as just a human being on this earth trying to do the best that I can therefore I I won’t inform you that something is appropriate that I do not believe is appropriate I won’t share with you that online therapy is the cure-all for whatever due to the fact that I do not think that therefore you can always anticipate to hear my truthful viewpoint on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a licensed psychologist I hope you discovered this video valuable and interesting if you did please like it below and feel free to subscribe to our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing more and more videos on a range of different psychological health subjects and please connect if there’s something specific you would like us to address or cover in an approaching video
