from anxiety and injury.Betterhelp Youtube Ads. and then also from the point of view that i’ve used better help as a client so today i’m going to discuss what it takes to be a psychotherapist in the u.s and what it takes to be a much better health therapist i likewise wish to reveal you a little a trick on the better help site that permits you to look at who the therapists are in your area read their profiles and pick one that resonates with you so it’s something that’s a little bit not quite concealed however kind of hidden on the site and i’m going to show you at the end and in between i likewise wish to deal with some criticisms that i have actually heard of better help therapists and i’ve listened to on youtube review videos so let’s start so i first want to make it clear that betterhelp just employs certified professionals and they match people with a licensed professional in your own state due to the fact that in the u.s we have this role that the therapist requires to be accredited in the state where you live so what does it take to be certified now obviously that varies a bit state by state but i’m going to walk you through what it requires
accredited in connecticut where i live and after that inform you what else is required to be a better health therapist so to become licensed you need a graduate degree in one of a handful of areas so you could have a psychology phd or a master’s degree in medical social work or marriage and household therapy or professional therapy and then when you have your graduate degree you need 3 000 hours of direct customer experience while you are being supervised by a professional who holds the license you’re seeking and you need a minimum of a hundred hours of supervision with this individual in which you talk about how you are supplying treatment to your customers so typically accomplishing this lots of medical hours and this much guidance most likely averages around 3 or 4 years of experience to get the scientific hours to even then sit for the composed examination and after that you sit for the composed examination and after that if you pass you get licensed so that’s what’s required to be licensed as a psychotherapist in connecticut and then if you wish to work for better help you need a minimum of three years of experience after you’ve been licensed so you are absolutely not getting interns on better help you’re getting a therapist with a graduate degree a solid number of scientific hours and a minimum of three years of experience after they have actually been licensed so there’s an incredibly 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 counselors i want to speak about that briefly is she states one they don’t recommend medication and two they don’t handle court orders so let me resolve those 2 things due to the fact that in the u.s as a psychotherapist you can not recommend medication unless you likewise occur to be an md or an lprn the only people in the united states who can prescribe medical physicians or psychiatric medications could be your general practitioner or a psychiatrist Betterhelp Youtube Ads
or a certified professional nurse who’s had particular training in psychiatric medications so those are the only two kinds of people who can prescribe medication the vast bulk of psychotherapists do not recommend medication due to the fact that they do not hold those other degrees and where i live very very few psychiatrists also do treatment most psychiatrists concentrate on recommending the medication and leave the treatment to the psychotherapists so that is not a legitimate criticism and then the 2nd criticism that they do not handle court orders i will tell you in my own private practice i actually tried to avoid handling 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 be in a panic asking to have 5 sessions in a week since they needed to go to court next week and they were trying to fulfill the requirement that they had received probably five or 6 months back now i understand that this happens i really do but that’s not really therapy that’s actually doing something to please a court order and it’s not the kind of work i ever did and most likely for many court-ordered therapy there are community agencies that can offer that kind of treatment in a more efficient manner so i simply wished to deal with those two criticisms because i don’t feel they stand so prior to i share with you this little technique on the website for better help in terms of being able to discover someone in your own area that you resonate with i wish to state 2 things one is that the fit in between you and a therapist is super essential and the style of a therapist makes a huge difference how comfortable 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 clients who’ve pertained to me after seeing someone in my area where they were paying a high private practice rate and they enter my office and they ‘d state my previous therapist did nothing but talk about herself well that’s not proper so if that takes place to you either with a private practice or a community agency or on better help switch therapists and if a therapist ever does something egregious you can report it to the state licensing board so certainly the quality of the therapist varies no matter what their training or background and you have to find someone who’s an excellent fit for you and really one of the
Does BetterHelp offer out-of-pocket counseling?
advantages i feel of the much better health platform is that you have this ability to quickly switch therapists so there’s some accountability because due to the fact that clearly if better help has a therapist and people are always switching far from that individual they get that feedback right if you go to someone in a private practice what do you tell and then it’s really difficult to find reviews unless you get a personal recommendation to a private practice therapist so i do believe that’s sort of an advantage of the better help platform that you can check out reviews you can compose an evaluation you can supply feedback and you can switch therapists if you require to so prior to i show you how you can go onto the betterhelp platform and select a therapist who resonates for you in your area but i do have a link listed below this video that supplies you with 10 off your very first month i am an affiliate of better help i am not a therapist on the platform and i no longer handle psychotherapy clients just as an fyi because i get that concern a lot but i connected with them since people all over the country and in fact all over the world contact me routinely to say that they do not have access to psychological health services so better help supply service in 140 different countries 40 various languages i remain in positioning with their objective 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 actually don’t get the choice up here to put your zip code in and see what therapists are offered you need 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 select baltimore maryland i do not live there
