Better Help Couples Therapy Online

When I was first approached…Better Help Couples Therapy…. to possibly collaborate with them on a youtube series among the important things that was actually essential to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I talked about what what subjects I chose to provide and likewise you know my own views when when needed or appropriate to share them and I was approved that by a they generally said you understand we trust you as a clinical expert and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and talk about what you understand and one of the things that I actually wished to address is the fact that I’m not simply here to state that online treatment is the answer for everything you know I think it can be extremely useful for many individuals I’ve seen it myself working with people from a couple of months as much as over a year and I seen how being able to message and likewise have video sessions with somebody is really a it

almost enriches the the restorative experience in such a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see people face-to-face and I thoroughly 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 be able to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it simply wouldn’t feel comfy and which’s okay those 2 things can both be true and I think among the things that I wish to begin to have individuals think of exists’s a place for both offline and online treatment it is actually a matter of you know deciding what’s right for you however likewise what’s most appropriate for you with the help of an expert when I speak about certain counseling designs or methods 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 issues that a lot of people have is that online counseling is attempting to replace offline therapy and I can tell you 100% that that’s not true I have actually had many conversations with the founder of where he has discussed that his audience isn’t to take on brick and mortar practices or put psychologists or licensed experts out of business his mission is to supply mental health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter the treatment office and I 100% assistance that objective and I think it is essential and we have an issue with access

to mental healthcare in this country and is one solution as our other online companies I was discussing previously that there are things that I personally think that online therapy is better suited for or offline therapy is more appropriate for and I’ve in fact I’ve in fact discussed this in other settings since it is something I feel quite passionate about and I need to state that my opinion has been well-received by companies like in terms of hopefully how they how they deal with individuals that present for care so I simply wanted to spend a couple of minutes discussing my own is my own individual viewpoint about the things that are most proper for online versus offline therapy so in my view I see online treatment as a terrific place for people who are fighting with difficult life shifts for situations where they’re experiencing more stress than typical for situations where you know they have an extremely well-defined issue with stress and anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is really structured can can benefit them which treatment due to the fact that it’s not as interpersonal as others is perfect for online therapy due to the fact that it includes a lot of homework it includes worksheets it involves finding out particular skills and techniques so mild milder conditions like moderate stress and anxiety mild depression modification conditions even PTSD as long as like the individual has gotten care at first in other places these are all things that can be attended to through online therapy you know consider somebody who has a agoraphobia and maybe they connect to a counselor from their home because they can’t leave their house and just simply to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where individuals are truly horrified of being trapped and caught in a place where they may have an anxiety attack therefore basically they start to restrict their activities and limit their activities up until a lot of them can’t leave their house without truly feeling substantial distress so if somebody like that is at house and they can connect through their computer and link to a counselor that’s a great first step is that going to treat them never because agoraphobia to be effectively dealt with needs that individual to be able to go outside and to resume regular activities and in some cases that includes a therapist going to their home to help them with that procedure obviously online therapists 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 therapy where they can in fact have a better life 100% and this is what the space 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 clearly interact that anything that I show you is going to be totally from where I stand as a professional 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 therefore I I will not inform you that something is appropriate that I don’t believe is appropriate I will not share with you that online counseling is the cure-all for everything due to the fact that I do not believe that therefore you can constantly anticipate to hear my truthful viewpoint on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a licensed psychologist I hope you discovered this video interesting and valuable 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 various psychological health subjects and please connect if there’s something particular you would like us to cover or deal with in an upcoming video
