3 000 hours of direct customer experience while you are being…Deborah Corey Betterhelp …supervised by a specialist who holds the license you’re looking for and you need a minimum of a hundred hours of supervision with this individual in which you go over how you are supplying therapy to your customers so generally achieving this lots of medical hours and this much supervision most likely averages around three or 4 years of experience to get the clinical hours to even then sit for the written exam 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 accredited 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 licensed so you are certainly not getting interns on better help you’re getting a therapist with a graduate degree a strong number of clinical hours and a minimum of 3 years of experience after they have actually been certified so there’s a popular video on youtube which criticizes better help therapists and calls them lay counselors which is merely not true and the reason she calls them late counselors i wish to discuss that briefly is she says one they do not recommend medication and 2 they don’t deal with court orders so let me attend to those two things since in the u.s as a psychotherapist you can not prescribe medication unless you also occur to be an md or an lprn the only people in the united states who can prescribe medical physicians or psychiatric medications could be your family doctor or a psychiatrist Deborah Corey Betterhelp
or a licensed expert nurse who’s had specific 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 due to the fact that they do not hold those other degrees and where i live extremely very few psychiatrists likewise do therapy most psychiatrists concentrate on prescribing the medication and leave the therapy to the psychotherapists so that is not a valid criticism and then the second criticism that they do not 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 happen is i would get a call from somebody who would remain in a panic asking to have 5 sessions in a week due to the fact that they had to go to court next week and they were trying to fulfill the requirement that they had received most likely five or six months back now i understand that this takes place i really do but that’s not actually treatment that’s really doing something to please a court order and it’s not the kind of work i ever did and most likely for many court-ordered treatment there are neighborhood agencies that can offer that kind of treatment in a more reliable way so i simply wanted to address those two criticisms because i do not feel they stand so prior to i share with you this little trick on the site for better help in regards to having the ability to find somebody in your own area that you resonate with i want to say 2 things one is that the fit between you and a therapist is extremely essential 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 somebody who has a really costly rate at a private practice and still not more than happy with the therapist right i have actually had clients who’ve concerned me after seeing somebody in my location where they were paying a high private practice rate and they come into my workplace and they ‘d say my previous therapist did nothing however 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 absolutely the quality of the therapist varies no matter what their training or background and you need to find someone who’s a great fit for you and actually among the

benefits i feel of the much better health platform is that you have this capability to easily change therapists so there’s some responsibility in that due to the fact that undoubtedly if better help has a therapist and people are constantly changing away from that individual they get that feedback right if you go to somebody in a private practice what do you inform and after that it’s extremely tough to find reviews unless you get an individual 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 write an evaluation you can provide feedback and you can change therapists if you require to so prior to i show you how you can go onto the betterhelp platform and choose a therapist who resonates for you in your area however 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 customers just as an fyi due to the fact that i get that concern a lot but i connected with them since people all over the nation and actually 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 different nations 40 various languages i’m in positioning with their mission so there is a link below this video that will provide you 10 percent off your first month so if you go to the betterhelp.com site you actually don’t get the choice up here to put your postal 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 pick baltimore maryland i don’t live there
