from stress and anxiety and injury.Groupon Betterhelp London. and after that also from the point of view that i have actually utilized better help as a client so today i’m going to talk about what it requires a psychotherapist in the u.s and what it takes to be a much better health therapist i also want to show you a bit of a technique on the better help website that permits you to look at who the therapists are in your area read their profiles and select one that resonates with you so it’s something that’s a bit not quite covert but kind of hidden on the site and i’m going to show you at the end and in between i also want to resolve some criticisms that i have actually heard of better help therapists and i have actually listened to on youtube evaluation videos so let’s begin so i first want to make it clear that betterhelp only hires certified experts and they match people with a certified expert in your own state because 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 licensed now obviously that differs a little bit state by state however i’m going to stroll you through what it takes to be
licensed in connecticut where i live and after that tell you what else is required to be a much better health therapist so to end up being certified you need a graduate degree in one of a handful of locations so you might have a psychology phd or a master’s degree in scientific social work or marital relationship and family treatment or expert therapy and then as soon as 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 looking for and you need a minimum of a hundred hours of guidance with this person in which you go over how you are supplying therapy to your customers so typically attaining this lots of clinical hours and this much guidance probably averages around 3 or 4 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 after that if you pass you get licensed so that’s what’s needed to be licensed as a psychotherapist in connecticut and after that if you want to work for better help you require a minimum of 3 years of experience after you have actually 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 three years of experience after they’ve been accredited so there’s a very popular video on youtube which slams better help therapists and calls them lay counselors which is merely not real and the reason she calls them late counselors i want to speak about that briefly is she states one they don’t prescribe medication and two they don’t handle court orders so let me address those two things due to the fact that 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 individuals in the united states who can prescribe psychiatric medications or medical physicians could be your family doctor or a psychiatrist Groupon Betterhelp London
or a licensed professional nurse who’s had specific training in psychiatric medications so those are the only two kinds of people who can prescribe medication the vast majority of psychotherapists do not recommend medication because they don’t hold those other degrees and where i live extremely extremely few psychiatrists likewise do therapy most psychiatrists focus 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 do not handle court orders i will inform you in my own private practice i truly attempted to prevent handling court orders and i will show you why most of the time what would take place is i would get a telephone call from somebody who would remain in a panic asking to have five sessions in a week since they needed to go to court next week and they were attempting to satisfy the requirement that they had received probably 5 or six months back now i comprehend that this occurs i actually do however that’s not in fact treatment that’s in fact doing something to satisfy a court order and it’s not the type of work i ever did and most likely for a lot of court-ordered therapy there are community firms that can provide that kind of therapy in a more reliable manner so i simply wished to address those 2 criticisms because i don’t feel they’re valid so before i share with you this little technique on the website for better help in terms of having the ability to find someone in your own location that you resonate with i want to say 2 things one is that the fit between you and a therapist is incredibly important and the design of a therapist makes a huge distinction how comfy you feel with them how safe you feel with them and you could 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 customers who’ve come to me after seeing someone in my location where they were paying a high private practice rate and they enter my workplace and they ‘d state my previous therapist not did anything but talk about herself well that’s not proper so if that takes place to you either with a private practice or a neighborhood company 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 somebody who’s a good fit for you and really among the

benefits i feel of the much better health platform is that you have this ability to easily change therapists so there’s some accountability in that since obviously if better help has a therapist and individuals are constantly changing away from that person they get that feedback right if you go to somebody in a private practice what do you inform and then it’s really difficult to discover evaluations unless you get an individual suggestion to a private practice therapist so i do think that’s sort of an advantage of the better help platform that you can read reviews you can write a review you can offer feedback and you can switch therapists if you require 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 location but 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 handle psychotherapy clients just as an fyi because i get that question a lot however i associated with them because individuals all over the country and really all over the world contact me routinely to state that they do not have access to psychological health services so better help supply service in 140 various nations 40 various languages i remain in alignment with their objective so there is a link listed below this video that will offer you 10 percent off your very first month so if you go to the betterhelp.com website you truly do not get the option up here to put your postal code in and see what therapists are readily available 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 pick baltimore maryland i do not live there
