Better Help/Dax – 60 year help

that was actually…Better Help/Dax… 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 also you understand my own views when when required or appropriate to share them and I was granted that by a better help they essentially said you understand we trust you as a medical expert and we’re gon na trust you to head out there and discuss what you understand and one of the things that I actually wished to address is the truth that I’m not just here to state that online treatment is the answer for everything you know I believe it can be extremely practical for many individuals I’ve seen it myself dealing with individuals 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 practically enhances the the restorative experience in a manner at the same time I have a private practice where I see individuals in person and I completely take pleasure in that and there

are individuals that I see there that I wouldn’t think about seeing online either they would not be appropriate we wouldn’t have the ability to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it just wouldn’t feel comfortable and and that’s alright those 2 things can both be true and I think among the things that I wish to start to have individuals think about is there’s a location for both offline and online treatment it is actually a matter of you understand choosing what’s right for you however also what’s most appropriate for you with the help of a professional when I speak about certain counseling designs or techniques as being appropriate for you what I mean by that is that it would be the best approach for the particular problem that you’re dealing with and I think that one of the concerns that a lot of people have is that online counseling is trying to replace offline counseling and I can tell you 100% that that’s not true I’ve had many conversations with the creator of better help where he has mentioned that his audience isn’t to take on physical practices or put psychologists or certified professionals out of business his objective is to offer psychological health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter the therapy workplace and I 100% assistance that mission and I think it’s important and we have an issue with access to mental healthcare in this country and

better hope is one option 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 really I’ve actually discussed this in other settings because it is something I feel pretty enthusiastic about and I have to say that my viewpoint has been favored by companies like better help in regards to ideally how they how they deal with individuals that provide for care so I simply wanted to invest a number of minutes speaking about my own is my own individual viewpoint about the important things that are most appropriate for offline versus online treatment so in my view I see online treatment as a fantastic location for people who are fighting with challenging life transitions for circumstances where they’re experiencing more tension than normal for circumstances where you know they have an extremely precise issue with anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive behavior modification which is very structured can can benefit them and that treatment since it’s not as interpersonal as others is ideal for online counseling since it involves a lot of research it includes worksheets it includes discovering specific skills and methods so mild milder disorders like moderate anxiety mild depression change conditions even PTSD as long as like the person has received care at first in other places these are all things that can be resolved through online counseling you know think about somebody who has a agoraphobia and possibly they reach out to a therapist from their house due to the fact that they can’t leave their home and simply simply to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where individuals are truly frightened of being caught and trapped in a location where they might have a panic attack therefore essentially they begin to limit their activities and restrict their activities until much of them can’t leave their home without actually feeling substantial distress so if somebody like that is at house and they can reach out through their computer system and connect to a therapist that’s a great first step is that going to cure them absolutely not since agoraphobia to be effectively dealt with needs that person to be able to go outside and to resume normal activities and in some cases that involves a therapist going to their house to help them with that procedure obviously online therapists are going to have the ability to do that however could they be the bridge that got that person who hesitates to leave their house from that preliminary supportive method to counseling where they can in fact have a better life 100% and this is what the gap that better help intends to fill with their services my indicate this to this particular video and bringing these things

up is that I I want to plainly interact that anything that I show you is going to be fully from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more significantly what I believe is as simply a human being on this earth attempting to do the very best that I can therefore I I will not tell you that something is appropriate that I don’t think is appropriate I won’t show you that online therapy is the cure-all for whatever due to the fact that I don’t think that therefore you can always anticipate to hear my truthful viewpoint on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you discovered this video fascinating and helpful if you did please like it below and feel free to subscribe to our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing more and more videos on a variety of various psychological health topics and please connect if there’s something particular you would like us to deal with or cover in an upcoming video Better Help/Dax
