from stress and anxiety and injury.Shane Dawson And Betterhelp. and after that likewise from the perspective that i have actually used 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 much better health therapist i likewise want to reveal you a little bit of a trick on the better help site that allows 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 little bit not quite hidden however type of concealed on the website and i’m going to reveal you at the end and in between i likewise wish to address some criticisms that i have actually 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 just works with certified professionals and they match people with a certified expert in your own state due to the fact that in the u.s we have this role that the therapist needs to be accredited in the state where you reside so what does it require licensed now obviously that varies a bit state by state but i’m going to walk you through what it takes to be
licensed in connecticut where i live and after that tell you what else is needed to be a much better health therapist so to become certified you require an academic 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 marital relationship and family treatment or expert counseling 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 an expert who holds the license you’re looking for and you require a minimum of a hundred hours of guidance with this person in which you discuss how you are offering treatment to your clients so typically attaining this many scientific hours and this much supervision probably averages around three or 4 years of experience to get the clinical hours to even then sit for the composed exam and after that you sit for the written test and then if you pass you get accredited so that’s what’s needed to be certified as a psychotherapist in connecticut and after that if you wish 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 solid number of scientific hours and a minimum of 3 years of experience after they’ve been accredited so there’s a popular video on youtube which slams better help therapists and calls them lay therapists which is merely not true and the reason she calls them late therapists i want to speak about that briefly is she says one they do not prescribe medication and 2 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 prescribe medication unless you likewise occur to be an md or an lprn the only people in the united states who can recommend psychiatric medications or medical doctors could be your family doctor or a psychiatrist Shane Dawson And Betterhelp
or a licensed professional nurse who’s had particular training in psychiatric medications so those are the only two types of people who can recommend medication the large majority of psychotherapists do not prescribe medication due to the fact that they don’t hold those other degrees and where i live extremely extremely few psychiatrists likewise do treatment most psychiatrists concentrate on prescribing the medication and leave the treatment to the psychotherapists so that is not a valid criticism and then the second criticism that they don’t deal with court orders i will inform you in my own private practice i truly tried to prevent handling court orders and i will show you why the majority of the time what would occur is i would get a call from someone who would be in a panic asking to have 5 sessions in a week because they needed to go to court next week and they were trying to fulfill the requirement that they had gotten probably five or 6 months earlier now i comprehend that this happens i actually do however that’s not actually therapy that’s in fact doing something to please a court order and it’s not the kind of work i ever did and probably for a lot of court-ordered treatment there are community firms that can provide that type of treatment in a more efficient way so i simply wanted to resolve those two criticisms since i do not feel they’re valid so prior to i show you this little trick on the site for better help in terms of having the ability to discover somebody in your own location that you resonate with i ‘d like to say two things one is that the fit between you and a therapist is extremely crucial and the style of a therapist makes a huge distinction how comfortable you feel with them how safe you feel with them and you might go to somebody who has a really costly rate at a private practice and still not enjoy with the therapist right i’ve had customers who’ve concerned me after seeing someone in my area where they were paying a high private practice rate and they enter into my office and they ‘d say my previous therapist not did anything but speak about herself well that’s not suitable so if that occurs to you either with a private practice or a community agency or on better help change 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 differs no matter what their training or background and you have to find someone who’s a great fit for you and in fact among the

advantages i feel of the better health platform is that you have this ability to quickly change therapists so there’s some accountability because because undoubtedly if better help has a therapist and people are always switching far from that person they get that feedback right if you go to someone in a private practice what do you tell and then it’s extremely hard to discover 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 read evaluations you can compose a review you can provide feedback and you can change therapists if you require to so before i show you how you can go onto the betterhelp platform and pick a therapist who resonates for you in your location however i do have a link listed below this video that offers 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 question a lot however i affiliated with them due to the fact that individuals all over the country and actually all over the world contact me frequently 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 listed below this video that will give you 10 percent off your very first month so if you go to the betterhelp.com site you truly do not get the option up here to put your postal 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
