Start Audio Video Messaging With Betterhelp – Get Started Today

 

And drawing back from my own (relatively subtle) concerns for a moment. Audio Video Messaging With Betterhelp…could e-counselling be the answer to the mental health issues intensifying amongst under-30s? With cuts to psychological health services truly starting to bite, digitised therapy could be simply the ticket for young adults who already filter almost every aspect of their lives– buddies, work, sex, home entertainment– through a screen.

Not everyone is completely encouraged that shifting psychological health care online is the way forward. “You get to know not only what it’s like to talk to the person, but how it feels to be in a space with them.

” I have actually performed some research into Skype counselling,” says London-based psychotherapist Dr Aaron Balick, “and it’s not the ‘functional equivalent’ of traditional counselling; it’s just not quite the very same thing. It’s actually important that people who engage in it are aware that it’s a different experience from being in the space with someone, speaking face-to-face.”

” In terms of ease of access, it’s a great start and absolutely better than nothing. It’ll hopefully lead them to eventually appearing in the space. However, if you’re struggling with relationship concerns, attachment problems, or deeper concerns, it’s better to be in the space with somebody. Skype and the web uses a distance from your counsellor that might not be valuable.”

In cases of mild depression, the NHS is now directing some clients towards online programs instead of in person counselling, a phenomenon that worries Dr Balick.
