Better Help Commercial Online

When I was first approached…Better Help Commercial…. to possibly work together 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 discussed what what topics I selected to provide and likewise you know my own views when when necessary or appropriate to share them and I was approved that by a they generally said you know we trust you as a scientific professional and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and discuss what you understand and one of the things that I actually wanted to address is the fact that I’m not just here to say that online treatment is the answer for everything you understand I think it can be extremely practical for many people I’ve seen it myself dealing with people from a few months up to over a year and I seen how being able to message and likewise have video sessions with somebody is really a it

nearly improves the the healing experience in a manner 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 consider seeing online either they wouldn’t be appropriate we wouldn’t have the ability to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it simply would not feel comfortable and and that’s fine those two things can both hold true and I believe one of the things that I want to start to have individuals consider is there’s a location 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 talk about specific therapy designs or methods as being appropriate for you what I indicate by that is that it would be the very best approach for

the particular issue that you’re dealing with and I believe that a person 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 true I have actually had numerous discussions with the founder of where he has pointed out that his audience isn’t to take on traditional practices or put psychologists or certified professionals out of business his mission is to provide mental health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter into the therapy office and I 100% support that objective and I believe it is necessary and we have a problem with access

to psychological healthcare in this nation and is one service as our other online companies I was mentioning previously that there are things that I personally think that online treatment is better suited for or offline treatment is better for and I’ve actually I’ve in fact discussed this in other settings due to the fact that it is something I feel pretty passionate about and I have to state that my viewpoint has been well-received by business like in terms of ideally how they how they work with individuals that provide for care so I just wished to invest a number of minutes discussing my own is my own personal opinion about the important things that are most proper for offline versus online treatment so in my view I see online therapy as a terrific place for people who are dealing with hard life shifts for situations where they’re experiencing more stress than regular for circumstances where you understand they have an extremely precise problem with stress and anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is very structured can can benefit them which treatment since it’s not as social as others is best for online therapy due to the fact that it involves a great deal of research it involves worksheets it involves discovering specific skills and methods so mild milder disorders like moderate anxiety mild depression modification conditions even PTSD as long as like the individual has actually gotten care at first elsewhere these are all things that can be dealt with through online therapy you understand think of someone who has a agoraphobia and perhaps they reach out to a counselor from their home due to the fact that they can’t leave their home and just just to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where people are really frightened of being caught and caught in a place where they may have an anxiety attack and so basically they begin to restrict their activities and restrict their activities till a lot of them can’t leave their home without really feeling substantial distress so if someone like that is at house and they can reach out through their computer and link to a counselor that’s an excellent primary step is that going to cure them absolutely not due to the fact that agoraphobia to be successfully dealt with requirements that person to be able to go outside and to resume typical activities and in some cases that involves a therapist going to their house to help them with that process certainly online counselors are going to be able to do that but could they be the bridge that got that individual who’s afraid to leave their house from that initial encouraging approach to therapy where they can really have a much better life 100% and this is what the gap that intends to fill with their services my indicate this to this specific video and bringing these

things up is that I I wish to clearly interact that anything that I show you is going to be fully from where I stand as an expert psychologist and more importantly what I believe is as simply 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 don’t think is appropriate I will not show you that online counseling is the cure-all for whatever since I do not think that and so you can always expect to hear my sincere viewpoint on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a licensed psychologist I hope you found this video intriguing and handy if you did please like it below and feel free to subscribe to our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing a growing number of videos on a variety of various mental health topics and please connect if there’s something particular you would like us to cover or attend to in an upcoming video
