from stress and anxiety and trauma.Betterhelp Commercial Panic. and after that also from the viewpoint that i’ve utilized better help as a customer so today i’m going to speak about what it requires a psychotherapist in the u.s and what it takes to be a much better health therapist i likewise wish to show you a little bit of a technique on the better help website that enables you to look at who the therapists are in your area read their profiles and choose one that resonates with you so it’s something that’s a bit not quite concealed however type of hidden on the site and i’m going to reveal you at the end and in between i likewise want to attend to some criticisms that i’ve heard of better help therapists and i’ve listened to on youtube review videos so let’s begin so i very first want to make it clear that betterhelp only employs certified professionals and they match individuals with a certified expert in your own state because in the u.s we have this function that the therapist requires to be licensed in the state where you reside so what does it require accredited now undoubtedly that differs a little bit state by state however i’m going to walk you through what it takes to be
accredited in connecticut where i live and then tell you what else is needed to be a better health therapist so to end up being licensed you require an academic degree in one of a handful of locations so you might have a psychology phd or a master’s degree in clinical social work or marital relationship and household therapy or expert therapy and after that once you have your academic degree you need 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 require a minimum of a hundred hours of guidance with this individual in which you talk about how you are supplying therapy to your customers so generally accomplishing this many medical hours and this much guidance most likely averages around three or four years of experience to get the clinical hours to even then sit for the composed exam and then you sit for the composed test and then if you pass you get certified so that’s what’s required to be certified as a psychotherapist in connecticut and after that if you want to work for better help you need a minimum of three years of experience after you have actually been certified so you are definitely not getting interns on better help you’re getting a therapist with a graduate degree a strong number of scientific hours and a minimum of three years of experience after they have actually been licensed so there’s a popular video on youtube which criticizes better help therapists and calls them lay therapists which is simply not true and the reason she calls them late therapists i wish to talk about that briefly is she says one they do not prescribe medication and 2 they do not handle court orders so let me resolve those two things due to the fact that in the u.s as a psychotherapist you can not recommend medication unless you also take place to be an md or an lprn the only people in the united states who can recommend medical physicians or psychiatric medications could be your general practitioner or a psychiatrist Betterhelp Commercial Panic
or a licensed professional nurse who’s had specific training in psychiatric medications so those are the only two types of people who can prescribe medication the vast bulk of psychotherapists do not recommend medication because they do not hold those other degrees and where i live really really couple of psychiatrists also do therapy most psychiatrists concentrate on prescribing the medication and leave the treatment to the psychotherapists so that is not a legitimate criticism and then the 2nd criticism that they don’t handle court orders i will tell you in my own private practice i truly tried to avoid dealing with court orders and i will share with you why the majority of the time what would occur is i would get a phone call from someone who would be in a panic asking to have 5 sessions in a week since they had to go to court next week and they were attempting to meet the requirement that they had actually gotten probably five or six months ago now i comprehend that this takes place i actually do but that’s not in fact therapy that’s actually doing something to satisfy a court order and it’s not the type of work i ever did and probably for most court-ordered therapy there are neighborhood companies that can offer that type of treatment in a more efficient way so i just wanted to deal with those two criticisms due to the fact that i don’t feel they stand so prior to i show you this little technique on the website for better help in regards to having the ability to find someone in your own area that you resonate with i ‘d like to say two things one is that the fit in between you and a therapist is very important and the style of a therapist makes a big difference how comfortable you feel with them how safe you feel with them and you might go to someone who has a really costly rate at a private practice and still not more than happy with the therapist right i have actually had clients who have actually come to me after seeing someone in my area where they were paying a high private practice rate and they enter into my workplace and they ‘d say my prior therapist did nothing however talk about herself well that’s not appropriate so if that occurs to you either with a private practice or a neighborhood company or on better help change therapists and if a therapist ever does something outright you can report it to the state licensing board so definitely the quality of the therapist varies no matter what their training or background and you have to discover someone who’s a good suitable for you and actually among the

benefits i feel of the much better health platform is that you have this capability to quickly change therapists so there’s some responsibility because since certainly if better help has a therapist and people are always switching far from that person they get that feedback right if you go to somebody in a private practice what do you inform and after that it’s really hard to find evaluations unless you get an individual suggestion to a private practice therapist so i do think that’s sort of a benefit of the better help platform that you can read reviews you can write an evaluation you can offer feedback and you can change therapists if you need to so prior to i share with you how you can go onto the betterhelp platform and select a therapist who resonates for you in your area however i do have a link listed below this video that provides 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 take on psychotherapy clients just as an fyi since i get that concern a lot however i connected with them because individuals all over the nation and actually all over the world contact me frequently to state that they don’t have access to mental health services so better help provide service in 140 various nations 40 various languages i’m in alignment with their mission so there is a link listed below this video that will provide you 10 percent off your very first month so if you go to the betterhelp.com website you really do not get the choice up here to put your zip code in and see what therapists are readily available you have to scroll all the way to the bottom and you’ll see here discover 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
