from anxiety and trauma.Betterhelp Youtube Sponsorships Shane Dawson. and then also from the perspective that i’ve utilized better help as a client so today i’m going to speak about what it requires a psychotherapist in the u.s and what it requires a better health therapist i likewise want to reveal you a bit of a technique on the better help website that enables you to take a look at who the therapists are in your location read their profiles and choose one that resonates with you so it’s something that’s a bit not quite covert but kind of concealed on the site and i’m going to show 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 have actually listened to on youtube review videos so let’s get going so i very first want to make it clear that betterhelp only hires certified experts and they match individuals with a certified specialist in your own state since in the u.s we have this function that the therapist needs to be certified in the state where you live so what does it take to be licensed now clearly that varies a little bit state by state but i’m going to stroll you through what it requires
licensed in connecticut where i live and then inform you what else is required to be a better health therapist so to become certified you need an academic degree in one of a handful of areas so you might have a psychology phd or a master’s degree in medical social work or marital relationship and family treatment or expert counseling and then as soon as you have your graduate degree you require 3 000 hours of direct client experience while you are being monitored by a specialist who holds the license you’re seeking and you need a minimum of a hundred hours of supervision with this person in which you discuss how you are supplying therapy to your customers so usually accomplishing this many clinical hours and this much supervision probably averages around 3 or four years of experience to get the scientific hours to even then sit for the written examination and then you sit for the written exam and after that if you pass you get accredited 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 3 years of experience after you have actually been certified so you are absolutely not getting interns on better help you’re getting a therapist with an academic degree a strong number of medical hours and a minimum of 3 years of experience after they’ve been accredited so there’s an incredibly popular video on youtube which slams better help therapists and calls them lay counselors which is just not true and the factor she calls them late therapists i wish to discuss that briefly is she states one they don’t recommend medication and two they do not handle court orders so let me deal with those two things since in the u.s as a psychotherapist you can not prescribe medication unless you also take place to be an md or an lprn the only people in the united states who can recommend psychiatric medications or medical physicians could be your general practitioner or a psychiatrist Betterhelp Youtube Sponsorships Shane Dawson
or a licensed professional nurse who’s had particular training in psychiatric medications so those are the only 2 types of people who can prescribe medication the large bulk of psychotherapists do not prescribe medication because they don’t hold those other degrees and where i live really very couple of psychiatrists also do therapy most psychiatrists concentrate on prescribing the medication and leave the therapy to the psychotherapists so that is not a legitimate criticism and then the 2nd criticism that they don’t handle court orders i will inform you in my own private practice i really attempted to avoid handling court orders and i will share with you why the majority of the time what would happen is i would get a phone call from someone who would be in a panic asking to have five sessions in a week because they needed to go to court next week and they were trying to meet the requirement that they had received probably 5 or six months ago now i comprehend that this takes place i truly do but that’s not in fact treatment that’s in fact doing something to please a court order and it’s not the type of work i ever did and most likely for the majority of court-ordered therapy there are neighborhood firms that can offer that type of treatment in a more effective manner so i just wished to attend to those 2 criticisms due to the fact that i do not feel they stand so prior to i show you this little trick 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 2 things one is that the fit between you and a therapist is very crucial and the style of a therapist makes a big distinction how comfy you feel with them how safe you feel with them and you might go to someone who has an extremely costly rate at a private practice and still not enjoy with the therapist right i have actually had customers who’ve come to me after seeing somebody in my area where they were paying a high private practice rate and they enter my office and they ‘d state my prior therapist did nothing but speak about herself well that’s not suitable so if that takes place to you either with a private practice or a community company or on better help switch therapists and if a therapist ever does something outright you can report it to the state licensing board so certainly the quality of the therapist differs no matter what their training or background and you have to discover somebody who’s a great fit for you and in fact one of the
Does BetterHelp offer out-of-pocket counseling?
benefits i feel of the better health platform is that you have this capability to easily change therapists so there’s some accountability because since clearly if better help has a therapist and individuals are always switching away 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 very hard to discover 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 read reviews you can write a review you can offer feedback and you can change therapists if you require to so before 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 offers 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 question a lot however i connected with them because people all over the nation and really all over the world contact me frequently to state that they do not have access to mental health services so better help provide service in 140 different nations 40 various languages i remain in alignment with their mission so there is a link below this video that will give you 10 percent off your first month so if you go to the betterhelp.com website you really don’t get the option up here to put your zip code in and see what therapists are offered 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 choose baltimore maryland i don’t live there
