Better Help Family Therapy Online

When I was first approached…Better Help Family Therapy…. to possibly collaborate with them on a youtube series one of the things that was truly important to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I spoke about what what subjects I chose to provide and likewise you know my own views when when essential or appropriate to share them and I was approved that by a they generally stated you understand we trust you as a scientific professional and

we’re gon na trust you to head out there and speak about what you know and among the important things that I really wanted to address is the truth that I’m not just here to say that online treatment is the answer for everything you know I believe it can be exceptionally helpful for many individuals I have actually seen it myself dealing with people from a few months up to over a year and I seen how being able to message and also have video sessions with somebody is really a it

almost enhances the the therapeutic experience in such a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals face-to-face and I thoroughly enjoy that and there are people that I see there that I would not 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 just wouldn’t feel comfy and and that’s all right those two things can both hold true and I believe among the things that I wish to begin to have people consider exists’s a location for both offline and online treatment it is truly a matter of you understand choosing what’s right for you however likewise what’s most suitable for you with the help of an expert when I discuss particular therapy designs or techniques as being appropriate for you what I indicate by that is that it would be the very best technique for

the particular issue that you’re dealing with and I think that one of the concerns that a great deal of people have is that online therapy is attempting to replace offline therapy and I can inform you 100% that that’s not real I have actually had many discussions with the creator of where he has actually discussed that his audience isn’t to compete with traditional practices or put psychologists or certified specialists out of business his objective is to supply psychological health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter into the therapy workplace and I 100% support that mission and I believe it is very important and we have an issue with access

to psychological healthcare in this country and is one solution as our other online business I was pointing out previously that there are things that I personally believe that online treatment is better for or offline therapy is better 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 need to say that my opinion has been well-received by companies like in regards to hopefully how they how they work with individuals that present for care so I simply wished to invest a couple of minutes speaking about my own is my own individual viewpoint about the important things that are most appropriate for offline versus online therapy so in my view I see online therapy as a wonderful location for individuals who are dealing with hard life shifts for scenarios where they’re experiencing more stress than normal for situations where you know they have a really well-defined concern with stress and anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is very structured can can benefit them and that therapy due to the fact that it’s not as interpersonal as others is best for online therapy since it includes a lot of research it involves worksheets it involves learning specific skills and techniques so mild milder disorders like mild stress and anxiety mild depression change conditions even PTSD as long as like the individual has received care at first in other places these are all things that can be attended to through online therapy you understand think about somebody who has a agoraphobia and possibly they connect to a counselor from their house due to the fact that they can’t leave their house and just just to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where people are actually horrified of being trapped and trapped in a location where they might have a panic attack and so basically they start to restrict their activities and restrict their activities up until many of them can’t leave their home without really feeling considerable distress so if somebody like that is at house and they can reach out through their computer system and link to a therapist that’s a terrific primary step is that going to treat them absolutely not because agoraphobia to be effectively treated requirements that individual to be able to go outside and to resume regular activities and often that includes a therapist going to their house to help them with that process clearly online therapists are going to have the ability to do that but could they be the bridge that got that individual who’s afraid to leave their home from that preliminary supportive method to therapy where they can really have a much better life 100% and this is what the space that intends 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 communicate that anything that I share with you is going to be totally from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more notably 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 won’t tell you that something is appropriate that I do not think is appropriate I will not share with you that online therapy is the cure-all for everything because 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 certified psychologist I hope you discovered this video practical and intriguing if you did please like it below and feel free to sign up for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing increasingly more videos on a range of various mental health subjects and please reach out if there’s something particular you would like us to attend to or cover in an approaching video
