What is betterbetterhelp? Amy Lee Betterhelp
licensed in connecticut where i live and after that inform you what else is…Amy Lee Betterhelp… needed to be a better health therapist so to become licensed you require an academic degree in among a handful of locations so you might have a psychology phd or a master’s degree in clinical social work or marriage and household treatment or expert counseling and after that once you have your academic degree you require 3 000 hours of direct customer experience while you are being supervised by an expert who holds the license you’re looking for and you need a minimum of a hundred hours of guidance with this person in which you talk about how you are offering therapy to your clients so usually accomplishing this many medical hours and this much guidance most likely averages around 3 or four years of experience to get the medical hours to even then sit for the composed examination and then you sit for the composed examination and then if you pass you get accredited so that’s what’s required to be certified as a psychotherapist in connecticut and then if you want to work for better help you need a minimum of 3 years of experience after you have actually been certified so you are certainly not getting interns on better help you’re getting a therapist with an academic degree a strong variety of scientific hours and a minimum of three years of experience after they’ve been licensed so there’s a popular video on youtube which slams better help therapists and calls them lay counselors which is just not real and the factor she calls them late therapists i wish to speak about that briefly is she states one they don’t recommend medication and two they don’t deal with court orders so let me deal with those 2 things because in the u.s as a psychotherapist you can not recommend medication unless you also occur to be an md or an lprn the only people in the united states who can prescribe psychiatric medications or medical physicians could be your family doctor or a psychiatrist Amy Lee Betterhelp
or a certified professional nurse who’s had particular training in psychiatric medications so those are the only 2 types of individuals who can recommend medication the large bulk of psychotherapists do not prescribe medication since they don’t hold those other degrees and where i live extremely really few psychiatrists also do therapy most psychiatrists focus on recommending the medication and leave the treatment to the psychotherapists so that is not a valid criticism and after that the 2nd criticism that they do not handle court orders i will tell you in my own private practice i really tried to avoid dealing with court orders and i will show you why most of the time what would occur is i would get a phone call from somebody who would remain in a panic asking to have 5 sessions in a week due to the fact that they needed to go to court next week and they were trying to satisfy the requirement that they had gotten most likely five or six months ago now i understand that this takes place i truly do but that’s not in fact therapy that’s really doing something to please a court order and it’s not the kind of work i ever did and most likely for the majority of court-ordered treatment there are community firms that can supply that type of treatment in a more effective manner so i just wished to resolve those two criticisms since i do not feel they stand so before i show you this little technique on the website for better help in regards to having the ability to find someone in your own location that you resonate with i wish to state 2 things one is that the fit between you and a therapist is very crucial and the design of a therapist makes a huge distinction how comfy you feel with them how safe you feel with them and you might go to somebody who has a very expensive rate at a private practice and still not be happy with the therapist right i have actually had customers who have actually pertained to me after seeing somebody in my area where they were paying a high private practice rate and they enter into my office and they ‘d say my prior therapist not did anything but discuss herself well that’s not appropriate so if that occurs to you either with a private practice or a community company or on better help change therapists and if a therapist ever does something egregious you can report it to the state licensing board so absolutely the quality of the therapist varies no matter what their training or background and you have to discover somebody who’s an excellent fit for you and in fact among the

benefits i feel of the much better health platform is that you have this ability to quickly change therapists so there’s some responsibility in that since clearly if better help has a therapist and individuals are constantly changing away from that person they get that feedback right if you go to someone in a private practice what do you tell and then it’s very tough to find evaluations unless you get an individual recommendation to a private practice therapist so i do believe that’s sort of a benefit of the better help platform that you can check out evaluations you can write a review you can provide feedback and you can switch therapists if you need to so prior to i share with you how you can go onto the betterhelp platform and pick a therapist who resonates for you in your area however i do have a link listed below this video that supplies you with 10 off your first month i am an affiliate of better help i am not a therapist on the platform and i no longer take on psychotherapy customers just as an fyi because i get that concern a lot but i connected with them due to the fact that individuals all over the nation and really all over the world contact me frequently to state that they don’t have access to psychological health services so better help provide service in 140 different countries 40 various languages i remain in positioning with their mission so there is a link below this video that will offer you 10 percent off your very first month so if you go to the betterhelp.com site you truly don’t get the option up here to put your postal code in and see what therapists are available you have to scroll all the way to the bottom and you’ll see here find a therapist so you can put in any city in the united states i’m going to pick baltimore maryland i don’t live there
