Better Help/Jordan – 60 year help

that was truly…Better Help/Jordan… essential 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 know my own views when when necessary or appropriate to share them and I was granted that by a better help they basically said you know we trust you as a medical professional and we’re gon na trust you to go out there and talk about what you understand and among the important things that I actually wanted to address is the fact that I’m not simply here to state that online treatment is the answer for whatever you know I think 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 having the ability to message and also have video sessions with someone is truly a it practically improves 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 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 would not be able to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it simply would not feel comfortable and and that’s alright those 2 things can both be true and I believe among the things that I want to start to have individuals think of exists’s a location for both offline and online treatment it is really 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 talk about certain counseling designs or methods as being appropriate for you what I imply by that is that it would be the very best approach for the particular problem that you’re handling and I believe that a person of the concerns that a lot of people have is that online therapy is trying to change offline counseling and I can tell you 100% that that’s not real I have actually had lots of discussions with the founder of better help where he has discussed that his audience isn’t to compete with brick and mortar practices or put psychologists or licensed experts out of business his mission is to provide psychological health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter the therapy 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 nation and

better hope is one solution as our other online companies I was mentioning previously that there are things that I personally believe that online therapy is better suited for or offline treatment is more appropriate for and I’ve in fact I’ve really spoken about this in other settings since it is something I feel quite passionate about and I have to say that my viewpoint has been popular by business like better help in regards to ideally how they how they deal with the people that present for care so I just wished to invest a number of minutes talking about my own is my own individual opinion about the 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 challenging life transitions for situations where they’re experiencing more stress than typical for circumstances where you understand they have a really clear-cut problem with stress and anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive behavior modification which is extremely 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 research it involves worksheets it includes finding out particular skills and techniques so mild milder conditions like moderate anxiety mild depression adjustment conditions even PTSD as long as like the person has received care initially elsewhere these are all things that can be addressed through online therapy you know consider somebody who has a agoraphobia and maybe they reach out to a therapist from their home because they can’t leave their home and just just to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where people are really horrified of being trapped and caught in a location where they may have an anxiety attack therefore essentially they begin to restrict their activities and restrict their activities until many of them can’t leave their home without actually feeling considerable distress so if somebody like that is at home and they can reach out through their computer and link to a counselor that’s a terrific initial step is that going to cure them absolutely not because agoraphobia to be effectively treated requirements that individual to be able to go outdoors and to resume typical activities and sometimes that involves a therapist going to their home to help them with that procedure undoubtedly online counselors are going to be able to do that but could they be the bridge that got that person who hesitates to leave their house from that initial helpful method to therapy where they can actually have a better life 100% and this is what the gap that better help aims to fill with their services my indicate this to this particular video and bringing these things

up is that I I want to plainly communicate that anything that I show you is going to be completely from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more notably what I believe is as just a human being on this earth trying to do the best that I can therefore I I won’t inform you that something is appropriate that I do not believe is appropriate I will not share with you that online counseling is the cure-all for whatever due to the fact that I don’t believe that therefore you can constantly expect to hear my truthful viewpoint on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a certified psychologist I hope you found this video handy and fascinating if you did please like it listed below and feel free to sign up for our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing more and more videos on a variety of different psychological health subjects and please reach out if there’s something specific you would like us to cover or deal with in an approaching video Better Help/Jordan
