3 000 hours of direct client experience while you are being…Betterhelp Jeri White …supervised by a professional who holds the license you’re looking for and you require a minimum of a hundred hours of supervision with this person in which you discuss how you are providing therapy to your customers so typically attaining this many clinical hours and this much supervision most likely averages around 3 or 4 years of experience to get the scientific hours to even then sit for the written examination and after that you sit for the composed examination and after that if you pass you get licensed so that’s what’s needed to be certified as a psychotherapist in connecticut and then if you wish to work for better help you need a minimum of 3 years of experience after you’ve been accredited 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’ve been accredited so there’s a preferred 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 counselors i wish to discuss that briefly is she says one they don’t prescribe medication and 2 they don’t deal with 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 likewise happen to be an md or an lprn the only individuals in the united states who can prescribe medical physicians or psychiatric medications could be your general practitioner or a psychiatrist Betterhelp Jeri White
or a licensed expert nurse who’s had specific training in psychiatric medications so those are the only 2 kinds of individuals who can prescribe medication the vast majority of psychotherapists do not recommend medication since they don’t hold those other degrees and where i live very really few psychiatrists likewise do treatment most psychiatrists concentrate on prescribing the medication and leave the treatment to the psychotherapists so that is not a legitimate criticism and after that the 2nd criticism that they do not deal with court orders i will inform you in my own private practice i actually attempted to avoid handling court orders and i will show you why most 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 since they had to go to court next week and they were trying to satisfy the requirement that they had received most likely five or 6 months ago now i understand that this happens i truly do however that’s not in fact therapy that’s in fact doing something to please a court order and it’s not the type of work i ever did and probably for a lot of court-ordered therapy there are community agencies that can provide that type of treatment in a more effective manner so i just wished to deal with those 2 criticisms because i don’t feel they stand so before i share with you this little trick on the site for better help in terms of being able to find somebody in your own area that you resonate with i want to say 2 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 comfy you feel with them how safe you feel with them and you could go to someone who has a really expensive rate at a private practice and still not enjoy with the therapist right i’ve had customers who have actually concerned me after seeing someone in my location where they were paying a high private practice rate and they enter my office and they ‘d state my prior therapist did nothing however speak about herself well that’s not proper so if that takes place to you either with a private practice or a community firm 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 differs no matter what their training or background and you need to find someone who’s a good fit for you and in fact one of the
Does BetterHelp offer out-of-pocket counseling?
advantages i feel of the better health platform is that you have this capability to quickly switch therapists so there’s some responsibility because because obviously 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 tell and after that it’s very difficult to find reviews unless you get an individual recommendation to a private practice therapist so i do think that’s sort of a benefit of the better help platform that you can check out reviews you can write a review you can offer feedback and you can switch 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 but i do have a link 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 take on psychotherapy clients just as an fyi because i get that concern a lot but i associated with them because people all over the country and really all over the world contact me frequently to say that they don’t have access to mental health services so better help offer service in 140 various countries 40 different languages i remain in alignment 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 really do not get the option up here to put your zip code in and see what therapists are 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 do not live there
