Have I shared that I used to consider taking Psychology in college?
I’ve always been curious about the mighty brain and the way it affects people. Back in university days, I used to wish to become a Guidance Counselor thus pushing me to take BS Psychology as a major. But due to lack of funds and information thereof, I have set aside that little corner of my interest. Little did I know that my major Social Sciences covers seven (7) branches and that includes Psych! :D
Up to date, those classes, sessions and workshops are the most unforgettable memories I had back in CNU.
Also, a part of me never wanted to be in the medical field but I have always been fascinated with the thought of wearing the white lab gown worn by doctors. Ha Ha Ha.. I’m currently addicted to the series The Good Doctor, my interest of becoming one resurrected . . .
So, I’m a teacher who wanted to be come a counselor and now a doctor wanna-be! :)
Being a teacher (well, as I used to be – – – ) is a privilege to hold many roles. To teach and mold their mind is the major one but when a student is hurt, I become a first aider/doctor. When he/she is in trouble I give advise and becomes a counselor.
Wait? Why am I talking about these?
Well, I’m sharing about psychology and my interest of being a counselor for a little while because in an earlier blog post I have shared to you a topic related to mental health. We discussed about Mental Health, Self-Love, Self-Care and seeking help from the people close to us. Alternatively seeking help from others who will not judge us because they don’t personally know us and yet they are experts in the field. I was talking about the online-therapy that BetterHelp.com could offer. With technology’s advancement comes the term telehealth.
TELEHEALTH. A digital information and communication tech such as our mobile phones, and computers that allows us to access health services and care remotely, where ever we are most especially at the comfort of our home.
Used by patients, doctors and counselors to improve and support health care services. It is a technique for the purpose of providing telemedicine, medical & health education over a distance and crossing location boundaries and geographic barriers.
A videoconference that transmits health reports, data and other information is one of the many ways that telehealth is being used. It aids patients who are in the remote areas to have access to healthcare services.
I personally experienced such service back in the Philippines when one hospital has this telehealth option. I haven’t really understood the whole process but now I am enlightened.
BetterHelp is a telehealth provider too. They have counselors that will allow you to communicate in your most convenient way. You can use the phone to talk, chat and through video calls. It is a private, professional counseling online-therapy hub.
You sign up, and BetterHelp will match you to an available and suitable counselor for you who fits your preferences. They will consider your objectives, types of issues and the approach that you’d like to take on. Thus more importantly, BetterHelp has different counselors with various areas of expertise and focus in order to achieve the best results for you and your needs. In the event that you don’t feel comfortable and matched with your current counseling session, you can always ask for another one.
In this age of social media, technology and all other advancement, it is only right and just that the medical field will also level up though telehealth and telemedicine.
Making life easier and convenient.
