Betterhelp Low Income Online Today

When I was first approached…Betterhelp Low Income…. to potentially work together with them on a youtube series one of the important things that was actually important to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I talked about what what topics I chose to provide and also you understand my own views when when needed or appropriate to share them and I was granted that by a they essentially stated you know we trust you as a clinical professional and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and discuss what you understand and one of the important things that I really wanted to address is the truth that I’m not simply here to say that online therapy is the answer for everything you know I think it can be exceptionally practical for many people I have actually seen it myself working with individuals from a few months as much as over a year and I seen how being able to message and likewise have video sessions with somebody is actually a it

almost 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 enjoy that and there are individuals 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 simply wouldn’t feel comfortable and and that’s fine those 2 things can both be true and I believe one of the things that I wish to begin to have individuals think about exists’s a place for both online and offline therapy it is actually a matter of you understand choosing what’s right for you but also what’s most appropriate for you with the help of an expert when I talk about specific counseling styles or methods as being appropriate for you what I imply by that is that it would be the very best approach for

the particular problem that you’re handling and I believe that one of the issues that a lot of people have is that online therapy is attempting to replace offline counseling and I can inform you 100% that that’s not real I have actually had lots of conversations with the founder of where he has actually discussed that his audience isn’t to compete with brick and mortar practices or put psychologists or licensed experts out of business his mission is to provide psychological health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter the therapy workplace and I 100% support 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 solution as our other online companies I was discussing earlier that there are things that I personally believe that online treatment is more appropriate for or offline treatment is better suited for and I’ve really I’ve actually discussed this in other settings because it is something I feel pretty passionate about and I need to state that my opinion has actually been favored by companies like in regards to hopefully how they how they work with the people that present for care so I just wished to invest a couple of minutes talking about my own is my own personal viewpoint about the important things that are most suitable for online versus offline therapy so in my view I see online therapy as a fantastic place for people who are battling with tough life transitions for scenarios where they’re experiencing more tension than regular for circumstances where you know they have a really precise issue with stress and anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is extremely structured can can benefit them and that therapy due to the fact that it’s not as social as others is perfect for online counseling because it involves a great deal of research it involves worksheets it includes discovering specific skills and strategies so moderate milder conditions like mild anxiety mild depression adjustment conditions even PTSD as long as like the individual has received care initially somewhere else these are all things that can be addressed through online therapy you know think about someone who has a agoraphobia and perhaps they reach out to a counselor from their house because they can’t leave their home and just just to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where people are really horrified of being caught and caught in a place where they may have a panic attack and so basically they begin to limit their activities and restrict their activities up until a lot of them can’t leave their home without truly feeling significant distress so if someone like that is at house and they can connect through their computer system and link to a therapist that’s an excellent primary step is that going to treat them never since 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 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 person who hesitates to leave their house from that initial helpful approach to counseling where they can really have a better life 100% and this is what the gap that aims to fill with their services my point to this to this specific video and bringing these

things up is that I I wish to plainly interact that anything that I show you is going to be totally from where I stand as an expert 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 will not inform you that something is appropriate that I do not think is appropriate I won’t show you that online therapy is the cure-all for everything because I do not think that therefore you can always expect to hear my truthful viewpoint on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you found this video fascinating and handy if you did please like it below and do not hesitate to subscribe to our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing increasingly more videos on a range of different psychological health subjects and please reach out if there’s something particular you would like us to cover or address in an upcoming video
