we’re gon na trust you to head out there and discuss what you know and one of the things that I truly wanted to address is the reality that I’m not simply here to say that online therapy is the answer for whatever you know I think it can be exceptionally valuable for many people I’ve seen it myself dealing with people from a few months up to over a year and I seen how being able to message and also have video sessions with someone is really a it

nearly improves the the therapeutic experience in a manner at the same time I have a private practice where I see people in person and I thoroughly delight in that and there are individuals that I see there that I would not consider seeing online either they would not be appropriate we wouldn’t be able to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it simply would not feel comfy and which’s all right those two things can both hold true and I think one of the things that I want to begin to have individuals consider is there’s a location for both offline and online therapy it is really a matter of you understand deciding what’s right for you however also what’s most proper for you with the help of an expert when I talk about specific therapy styles or approaches as being appropriate for you what I suggest by that is that it would be the very best technique for

the particular issue that you’re handling and I believe that a person of the concerns that a great deal of individuals have is that online counseling is trying to change offline counseling and I can tell you 100% that that’s not real I’ve had numerous conversations with the creator of where he has actually pointed out that his audience isn’t to take on traditional practices or put psychologists or licensed experts out of business his objective is to provide psychological health access to individuals who aren’t going to enter into the treatment office and I 100% assistance that objective and I believe it’s important and we have a problem with gain access to

to psychological healthcare in this country and is one solution as our other online business I was mentioning earlier that there are things that I personally think that online treatment is more appropriate for or offline therapy is better for and I’ve actually I’ve really spoken about this in other settings since it is something I feel quite passionate about and I need to say that my viewpoint has actually been favored by business like in terms of ideally how they how they deal with individuals that provide for care so I simply wanted to spend a couple of minutes speaking about my own is my own personal opinion about the things that are most proper for online versus offline therapy so in my view I see online treatment as a fantastic location for individuals who are having problem with difficult life transitions for circumstances where they’re experiencing more stress than normal for situations where you know they have an extremely precise issue 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 interpersonal as others is ideal for online counseling because it includes a great deal of research it involves worksheets it involves finding out particular abilities and strategies so moderate milder disorders 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 addressed through online counseling you understand consider somebody who has a agoraphobia and perhaps they reach out to a counselor from their house since they can’t leave their house and just just 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 and so basically they start to restrict their activities and restrict their activities up until many of them can’t leave their house without really feeling considerable 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 an excellent primary step is that going to treat them never due to the fact that agoraphobia to be successfully treated needs that individual to be able to go outdoors and to resume regular activities and sometimes that includes a therapist going to their house to help them with that process undoubtedly online therapists are going to have the ability to do that however could they be the bridge that got that person who’s afraid to leave their home from that preliminary supportive method to counseling where they can actually have a much better life 100% and this is what the gap that 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 totally from where I stand as a professional psychologist and more importantly what I think is as just a human being on this earth attempting to do the best that I can therefore I I will not tell you that something is appropriate that I don’t believe is appropriate I won’t share with you that online counseling is the cure-all for whatever since I do not believe that and so you can constantly expect to hear my truthful opinion on what I think from my own experience and knowledge base as a licensed psychologist I hope you discovered this video fascinating and practical 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 different mental health subjects and please connect if there’s something specific you would like us to cover or attend to in an upcoming video
