Better Help Therapy Online Today

When I was first approached…Better Help Therapy…. to potentially work together with them on a youtube series one of the important things that was really crucial to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I discussed what what topics I selected to present and likewise you know my own views when when essential or appropriate to share them and I was given that by a they basically said you know we trust you as a clinical expert and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and speak about what you understand and one of the important things that I truly wished to address is the reality that I’m not just here to say that online treatment is the answer for everything you know I believe it can be extremely helpful for many individuals I have actually seen it myself working with people from a couple of months approximately over a year and I seen how being able to message and also have video sessions with someone is truly a it

practically improves the the restorative experience in a manner at the same time I have a private practice where I see people in person and I completely enjoy 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 wouldn’t feel comfortable and which’s alright those two things can both hold true and I think among the important things that I want to start to have individuals think about exists’s a place for both offline and online treatment it is really a matter of you know deciding what’s right for you but likewise what’s most proper for you with the help of a professional when I speak about particular counseling designs or approaches as being appropriate for you what I suggest 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 issues that a lot of individuals have is that online therapy is attempting to change offline counseling and I can inform you 100% that that’s not real I have actually had numerous discussions with the founder of where he has pointed out that his audience isn’t to compete with brick and mortar practices or put psychologists or licensed professionals out of business his objective is to offer psychological health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter into the treatment office and I 100% assistance that mission and I think it is very important and we have an issue with access

to mental health care in this country and is one service as our other online business I was discussing previously that there are things that I personally think that online treatment is better suited for or offline therapy is better suited for and I’ve in fact I’ve really spoken about this in other settings because it is something I feel quite passionate about and I need to state that my opinion has been well-received by business like in regards to ideally how they how they work with individuals that present for care so I just wanted to invest a number of minutes discussing my own is my own individual opinion about the important things that are most suitable for online versus offline treatment so in my view I see online therapy as a wonderful place for people who are fighting with hard life shifts for situations where they’re experiencing more stress than regular for scenarios where you understand they have a very well-defined issue with anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is very structured can can benefit them and that therapy due to the fact that it’s not as social as others is best for online counseling because it involves a lot of research it includes worksheets it includes discovering specific skills and techniques so mild milder conditions like moderate stress and anxiety mild depression adjustment conditions even PTSD as long as like the person has actually gotten care at first in other places these are all things that can be resolved through online therapy you know think of somebody who has a agoraphobia and perhaps they connect to a therapist from their house due to the fact that they can’t leave their home and simply just to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where individuals are truly frightened of being trapped and caught in a place where they might have an anxiety attack therefore basically they start to restrict their activities and restrict their activities up until much of them can’t leave their house without really feeling substantial distress so if somebody like that is at house and they can connect through their computer system and link to a counselor that’s a fantastic initial step is that going to cure them never due to the fact that agoraphobia to be effectively treated needs that person to be able to go outside and to resume normal activities and in some cases that includes a therapist going to their house to help them with that process obviously online counselors are going to be able to do that however could they be the bridge that got that person who’s afraid to leave their house from that preliminary helpful approach to counseling 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 indicate this to this specific 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 fully from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more notably what I think is as just a human being on this earth trying to do the very best that I can and so I I will not inform 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 whatever due to the fact that I do not believe that therefore you can always expect 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 intriguing if you did please like it below and do not hesitate to sign up for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing a growing number of videos on a range of various psychological health subjects and please reach out if there’s something specific you would like us to cover or address in an upcoming video
