That was one of the main concerns. This Video Is Sponsored By Betterhelp…that was really 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 likewise you understand my own views when when required or appropriate to share them and I was granted that by a better help they generally stated you understand we trust you as a medical professional and we’re gon na trust you to head out there and speak about what you know and among the things that I really wanted to address is the fact that I’m not just here to say that online treatment is the answer for whatever you understand I think it can be extremely useful for lots of people I’ve seen it myself dealing with individuals from a few months approximately over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and also have video sessions with somebody is truly a it nearly enhances the the healing experience in a manner at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals in person and I thoroughly take pleasure in that and there

are people that I see there that I wouldn’t consider seeing online either they wouldn’t be appropriate we would not be able to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it just would not feel comfy and and that’s okay those 2 things can both be true and I believe one of the important things that I wish to start to have individuals consider is there’s a place for both offline and online therapy it is truly a matter of you know choosing what’s right for you however also what’s most proper for you with the help of a professional when I speak about certain therapy styles or methods as being appropriate for you what I imply by that is that it would be the very best method for the particular issue that you’re handling and I think that one of the issues that a great deal of people have is that online therapy is trying to replace offline therapy and I can inform you 100% that that’s not true I have actually had lots of discussions with the creator of better help where he has actually mentioned 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 offer mental health access to the people who aren’t going to enter into the therapy workplace and I 100% support that mission and I think it is necessary and we have an issue with access to mental health care in this nation and

better hope is one service as our other online companies I was pointing out earlier that there are things that I personally think that online therapy is better for or offline treatment is better suited for and I’ve really I’ve actually spoken about this in other settings due to the fact that it is something I feel pretty enthusiastic about and I have to state that my viewpoint has been popular by business like better help in regards to ideally how they how they work with individuals that provide for care so I simply wished to invest a couple of minutes discussing my own is my own personal viewpoint about the important things that are most suitable for offline versus online treatment so in my view I see online therapy as a fantastic place for individuals who are battling with tough life shifts for situations where they’re experiencing more stress than normal for circumstances where you know they have a really clear-cut concern with stress and anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive behavioral therapy which is extremely structured can can benefit them and that therapy due to the fact that it’s not as social as others is best for online therapy due to the fact that it includes a lot of homework it involves worksheets it includes finding out particular abilities and techniques so mild milder conditions like moderate anxiety mild depression modification disorders even PTSD as long as like the person has actually received care at first elsewhere these are all things that can be resolved through online counseling you understand think of someone who has a agoraphobia and possibly they reach out to a therapist from their house because they can’t leave their house and just just to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where individuals are actually terrified of being trapped and caught in a place where they might have an anxiety attack therefore basically they begin to restrict their activities and restrict their activities till a lot of them can’t leave their home without really feeling significant distress so if someone like that is at house and they can reach out through their computer and connect to a counselor that’s an excellent initial step is that going to cure them absolutely not since agoraphobia to be effectively treated needs that individual to be able to go outdoors and to resume typical activities and in some cases that includes a therapist going to their house to help them with that process undoubtedly online therapists are going to be able to do that however might they be the bridge that got that individual who hesitates to leave their home from that preliminary helpful method to counseling where they can in fact have a better life 100% and this is what the space that better help aims to fill with their services my point to this to this particular video and bringing these things

up is that I I want to plainly communicate that anything that I share with you is going to be fully from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more significantly what I believe is as just a human being on this earth trying to do the best that I can and so I I will not tell you that something is appropriate that I do not think is appropriate I will not show you that online counseling is the cure-all for whatever due to the fact that I don’t believe that therefore you can always anticipate to hear my truthful opinion on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you found this video useful and intriguing 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 a growing number of videos on a range of various psychological health subjects and please connect if there’s something specific you would like us to cover or deal with in an upcoming video
