practical and new} resources to improve yourself while facing your emotional obstacles Dan Cooper Betterhelp
yes well it’s a big concern to begin with sure well let me just just reassociate about that a little bit I’ve been doing treatment for a very long time of all the different schools of treatment I would state did one end of the continuum of those who believe that the nature of the relationship the intimacy of the relationship the the deal with the procedure meaning what’s occurring between exists isn’t a is the most important problem so I focus very much on taking a look at what’s going on in between the patients and me trying to provide very intimate so I would be the individual who would most likely be least thinking about a context therapy format and and I have been for several years I imply one so my coworkers do telephone terapy for example I know an analyst who relocated to California would capital for New york city analysis and would do her analysis of the phone I felt really vital that you’re missing out on all these visual hints how can you do that but whatever changed for me a couple of years ago when I got a call an e-mail from from a client who I can’t even
mention the the location where she was but she was on another continent where it was definitely cold in the northern hemisphere and there wasn’t another therapist or MD within 5 or 6 hundred miles of her and asking whether I would just do some Skype work with her since there was no other alternative I I agreed to do that she couldn’t see anybody else and she needed treatment so I began working with her and I wound up having a great experience with her in fact she had actually relocated to that location to avoid everyone and there is no other way that she would have wanted to meet with me in a room in person there was no other alternative in a sense therefore it ended up it was remarkably well I was very impressed with that and ever since I’ve had a real had a real change of focus on that and one of the important things that has actually been most interesting to me about talks face is the reality that of a it’s just it’s counterintuitive I would have believed the significant problem with talk space is that they would not be concentrating on the here and now what was happening between therapist and client and yet compared to many of the new movements in psychotherapy with cognitive behavior modification they’re much more involved in the nature a minimum of the method it’s performed in this outfit it’s they’re much more interested and nurturing of the here and now and with patient relationship so that’s.
that’s been a change of heart for me totally migrated I was also surprised to see just how much intimacy you can get back at by writing in some cases even a few of the clients are more able to expose themselves that is a bit anonymous that that’s been really important finding for me also I’ve been dealing with Nicole Eames and supervising quite routinely now in the last couple of years and that’s that is among the important things that I truly discovered in my work with her as she spoke about her client they reveal things what has surprised me is several times I’ve heard her say the clients have actually said that they reveal things to her they never ever revealed to their to their in person therapist which’s rather exceptional one of the things is obviously the anonymity that that we do not rather find however here they deal with face to face therapist for a year or more and never ever exposed certain of these things that were that were extremely shameful there’s another thing too which is that a patient can have a panic attack in the middle of the night and instantly text the therapist.
