from anxiety and trauma.Ethan Pewdiepie Betterhelp. and after that also from the point of view that i’ve used better help as a customer so today i’m going to talk about what it requires a psychotherapist in the u.s and what it takes to be a better health therapist i likewise want to show you a little a trick on the better help website that allows you to look at who the therapists are in your location read their profiles and pick one that resonates with you so it’s something that’s a bit not quite covert however type of concealed on the website and i’m going to reveal you at the end and in between i likewise wish to deal with some criticisms that i have actually become aware 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 just hires certified specialists and they match people with a licensed specialist in your own state since in the u.s we have this function that the therapist requires to be accredited in the state where you live so what does it take to be certified now obviously that differs a bit state by state however i’m going to walk you through what it takes to be
certified in connecticut where i live and after that inform you what else is needed to be a much better health therapist so to end up being certified you require a graduate degree in one of a handful of locations so you could have a psychology phd or a master’s degree in medical social work or marital relationship and household treatment or expert therapy and after that as soon as you have your academic degree you need 3 000 hours of direct client experience while you are being monitored by an expert who holds the license you’re seeking and you require a minimum of a hundred hours of supervision with this individual in which you discuss how you are offering treatment to your clients so typically accomplishing this numerous clinical hours and this much supervision most likely averages around 3 or four years of experience to get the medical hours to even then sit for the composed exam and then you sit for the written test and after that if you pass you get licensed so that’s what’s needed to be accredited 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 definitely not getting interns on better help you’re getting a therapist with an academic degree a strong variety of medical hours and a minimum of 3 years of experience after they have actually been certified so there’s an incredibly popular video on youtube which slams better help therapists and calls them lay therapists which is just not real and the factor she calls them late counselors i wish to talk about that briefly is she says one they do not recommend medication and two they do not deal with court orders so let me resolve those 2 things since in the u.s as a psychotherapist you can not recommend medication unless you also happen to be an md or an lprn the only individuals in the united states who can recommend medical physicians or psychiatric medications could be your family doctor or a psychiatrist Ethan Pewdiepie Betterhelp
or a certified professional nurse who’s had specific training in psychiatric medications so those are the only 2 kinds of people who can recommend medication the large majority of psychotherapists do not prescribe medication since they do not hold those other degrees and where i live really really couple of psychiatrists also do therapy most psychiatrists focus on prescribing the medication and leave the therapy to the psychotherapists so that is not a legitimate criticism and after that the second criticism that they don’t handle court orders i will tell you in my own private practice i truly tried to prevent dealing with court orders and i will show you why the majority of the time what would happen is i would get a phone call from somebody who would be in a panic asking to have five sessions in a week because they had to go to court next week and they were trying to meet the requirement that they had received probably five or 6 months earlier now i understand that this takes place i really do however that’s not really therapy that’s actually doing something to satisfy a court order and it’s not the kind of work i ever did and probably for most court-ordered treatment there are neighborhood companies that can supply that type of treatment in a more efficient manner so i just wanted to resolve those two criticisms due to the fact that i don’t feel they’re valid so prior to i share with you this little trick on the site for better help in regards to being able to find someone in your own area that you resonate with i want to state two things one is that the fit in between you and a therapist is super important and the style of a therapist makes a big distinction how comfortable you feel with them how safe you feel with them and you could go to somebody who has a very costly rate at a private practice and still not be happy with the therapist right i’ve had clients who have actually come to me after seeing somebody in my area where they were paying a high private practice rate and they enter into my workplace and they ‘d state my prior therapist not did anything but discuss herself well that’s not appropriate so if that takes place to you either with a private practice or a neighborhood 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 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 one of the
Does BetterHelp offer out-of-pocket counseling?
advantages i feel of the much better health platform is that you have this capability to quickly change therapists so there’s some responsibility because because undoubtedly if better help has a therapist and individuals are constantly changing far from that person they get that feedback right if you go to someone in a private practice what do you tell and after that it’s very difficult to discover evaluations 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 evaluations you can compose a review you can provide 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 location but i do have a link listed below this video that provides 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 handle psychotherapy clients just as an fyi due to the fact that i get that concern a lot however i connected with them since people all over the country and in fact 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 countries 40 various languages i remain in alignment with their objective so there is a link listed below this video that will provide you 10 percent off your first month so if you go to the betterhelp.com website you actually do not get the option 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 discover a therapist so you can put in any city in the united states i’m going to select baltimore maryland i don’t live there
i do not understand any therapists there however i’m just going to try it and you will get an entire host of therapists and you can take a look and once again i do not know these people i’m not promoting them in any way i’m just revealing you how you can screen to see who the therapists are that are offered in your location prior to signing up and after that if you actually liked this therapist or say here dr veronica wanza she concentrates on stress anxiety lgbt relationship issues injury and abuse Ethan Pewdiepie Betterhelp
