Betterhelp Health Insurance Online

When I was first approached…Betterhelp Health Insurance…. to perhaps collaborate with them on a youtube series among the things that was really crucial to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I spoke about what what subjects I picked to provide and also you know my own views when when needed or appropriate to share them and I was approved that by a they generally stated you know we trust you as a medical expert and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and talk about what you understand and one of the important things that I actually wished to address is the reality that I’m not just here to say that online therapy is the answer for whatever you understand I think it can be incredibly practical for many individuals I have actually seen it myself working with individuals from a couple of months as much as over a year and I seen how being able to message and also have video sessions with someone is really a it

nearly enhances the the healing experience in a way at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals in person and I thoroughly enjoy that and there are people that I see there that I would not think about seeing online either they would not be appropriate we would not 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 think one of the things that I wish to start to have individuals think of exists’s a place for both online and offline treatment it is truly a matter of you understand deciding what’s right for you but likewise what’s most proper for you with the help of a professional when I discuss certain therapy designs or approaches as being appropriate for you what I indicate by that is that it would be the best approach for

the particular issue that you’re dealing with and I believe that a person of the issues that a lot of people have is that online counseling is trying to change offline counseling and I can tell you 100% that that’s not true I’ve had many conversations with the creator of where he has discussed that his audience isn’t to compete with physical practices or put psychologists or certified professionals out of business his mission is to provide psychological health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter into the therapy workplace and I 100% support that mission and I think it is very important and we have a problem with gain access to

to mental healthcare in this country and is one service as our other online companies I was discussing previously that there are things that I personally think that online treatment is better for or offline treatment is more appropriate for and I’ve really I’ve actually discussed this in other settings due to the fact that it is something I feel quite enthusiastic about and I have to say that my viewpoint has been favored by companies like in terms of ideally how they how they deal with individuals that present for care so I simply wanted to invest a couple of minutes speaking about my own is my own individual viewpoint about the important things that are most proper for online versus offline treatment so in my view I see online treatment as a wonderful place for individuals who are struggling with hard life transitions for situations where they’re experiencing more tension than normal for situations where you know they have a very specific concern with anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavioral therapy which is really structured can can benefit them which therapy since it’s not as social as others is best for online counseling because it involves a lot of homework it involves worksheets it involves learning particular skills and techniques so mild milder disorders like mild stress and anxiety mild depression change conditions even PTSD as long as like the person has received care at first somewhere else these are all things that can be resolved through online therapy you understand think of somebody who has a agoraphobia and possibly they reach out to a therapist from their home since they can’t leave their home and just just to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where people are truly terrified of being caught and caught in a place where they might have a panic attack and so basically they start to restrict their activities and restrict their activities until many of them can’t leave their home without actually feeling substantial distress so if someone like that is at home and they can connect through their computer and link to a therapist that’s a great primary step is that going to cure them absolutely not because agoraphobia to be effectively dealt with needs that individual to be able to go outside and to resume typical activities and often that involves a therapist going to their home to help them with that process clearly online counselors are going to have the ability to do that however might they be the bridge that got that individual who’s afraid to leave their home from that preliminary supportive technique to counseling where they can in fact have a better life 100% and this is what the gap 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 clearly communicate that anything that I show you is going to be completely from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more importantly what I believe is as simply a human being on this earth attempting to do the best that I can therefore I I won’t tell you that something is appropriate that I don’t believe is appropriate I won’t share with you that online therapy is the cure-all for everything because I do not think that therefore you can always expect to hear my honest viewpoint on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you discovered this video practical and interesting if you did please like it listed 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
