are individuals that I see there that I would not consider seeing online either they wouldn’t 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 comfy and which’s alright those 2 things can both hold true and I think among the important things that I wish to begin to have people think of exists’s a location for both offline and online therapy it is really a matter of you know choosing what’s right for you but also what’s most appropriate for you with the help of a professional when I speak about specific therapy styles 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 dealing with and I think that one of the concerns that a lot of individuals have is that online therapy is attempting to change offline counseling and I can tell you 100% that that’s not true I’ve had numerous discussions with the creator of better help where he has actually pointed out that his audience isn’t to take on brick and mortar practices or put psychologists or licensed specialists out of business his objective is to offer psychological health access to the people who aren’t going to enter into the therapy workplace and I 100% assistance that objective and I believe it is necessary and we have a problem with access to mental healthcare in this country and
better hope is one option as our other online companies I was pointing out previously that there are things that I personally believe that online treatment is more appropriate for or offline treatment is better suited for and I’ve actually I’ve really discussed this in other settings because it is something I feel pretty enthusiastic about and I have to say that my opinion has actually been popular by companies like better help in terms of ideally how they how they work with individuals that provide for care so I simply wished to invest a couple of minutes talking about my own is my own personal opinion about the important things that are most proper for offline versus online treatment so in my view I see online treatment as a wonderful location for individuals who are having problem with hard life shifts for circumstances where they’re experiencing more tension than normal for circumstances where you know they have a very clear-cut problem with stress and anxiety or social stress and anxiety and a treatment like cognitive behavior modification which is extremely structured can can benefit them which therapy because it’s not as social as others is ideal for online counseling because it involves a great deal of research it includes worksheets it includes finding out particular abilities and strategies so mild milder conditions like mild stress and anxiety mild depression modification conditions even PTSD as long as like the person has gotten care initially somewhere else these are all things that can be attended to through online therapy you know think about somebody who has a agoraphobia and possibly they connect to a therapist from their house due to the fact that they can’t leave their house and just simply to clarify agoraphobia is a disorder where people are really frightened of being trapped and trapped in a location where they might have an anxiety attack therefore basically they begin to restrict their activities and limit their activities till much of them can’t leave their house without truly feeling substantial distress so if someone like that is at home and they can connect through their computer system and connect to a therapist that’s a great initial step is that going to treat them absolutely not because agoraphobia to be successfully treated requirements that individual to be able to go outdoors and to resume normal activities and sometimes that involves a therapist going to their home to help them with that procedure undoubtedly 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 approach to therapy where they can in fact have a better life 100% and this is what the space that better help intends to fill with their services my point to this to this specific video and bringing these things Betterhelp (Ed.).
