3 000 hours of direct client experience while you are being…Mark Miller Betterhelp …monitored by an expert who holds the license you’re seeking and you need a minimum of a hundred hours of guidance with this person in which you discuss how you are supplying treatment to your clients so generally achieving this many clinical hours and this much guidance most likely averages around three or 4 years of experience to get the scientific hours to even then sit for the composed exam and then you sit for the written examination and after that if you pass you get licensed so that’s what’s required to be accredited as a psychotherapist in connecticut and after that if you wish to work for better help you require a minimum of 3 years of experience after you’ve been certified so you are certainly 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 three years of experience after they have actually been certified so there’s a preferred video on youtube which criticizes better help therapists and calls them lay counselors which is simply not real and the factor she calls them late therapists i wish to speak about that briefly is she states one they don’t recommend medication and two they do not 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 also happen 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 Mark Miller Betterhelp
or a licensed professional nurse who’s had specific training in psychiatric medications so those are the only 2 kinds of people who can prescribe medication the huge majority of psychotherapists do not prescribe medication since they do not hold those other degrees and where i live really really couple of psychiatrists likewise do therapy most psychiatrists focus on prescribing the medication and leave the therapy to the psychotherapists so that is not a valid criticism and after that the 2nd criticism that they don’t deal with court orders i will tell you in my own private practice i actually attempted to prevent handling court orders and i will share with you why most of the time what would occur is i would get a call from somebody who would be in a panic asking to have five sessions in a week since they had to go to court next week and they were attempting to fulfill the requirement that they had gotten most likely five or 6 months ago now i comprehend that this happens i actually do but that’s not in fact therapy that’s actually 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 neighborhood companies that can supply that kind of treatment in a more efficient manner so i simply wished to address those 2 criticisms due to the fact that i don’t feel they stand so prior to i show you this little trick on the site for better help in terms of being able to discover somebody in your own location that you resonate with i want to say 2 things one is that the fit in between you and a therapist is incredibly crucial and the design 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 pricey rate at a private practice and still not be happy with the therapist right i have actually had clients who’ve pertained to me after seeing someone in my area where they were paying a high private practice rate and they come into my workplace and they ‘d state my prior therapist not did anything but speak about herself well that’s not proper so if that happens to you either with a private practice or a neighborhood agency or on better help change therapists and if a therapist ever does something outright you can report it to the state licensing board so absolutely the quality of the therapist differs no matter what their training or background and you need to find someone who’s a great fit for you and really among the

benefits i feel of the better health platform is that you have this ability to easily switch therapists so there’s some accountability in that due to the fact that clearly if better help has a therapist and individuals are always 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 very difficult to discover evaluations unless you get a personal 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 evaluations you can write a review you can supply 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 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 take on psychotherapy customers just as an fyi because i get that concern a lot but i connected with them because people all over the country and in fact all over the world contact me regularly to state 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 alignment with their objective so there is a link below this video that will give you 10 percent off your very first month so if you go to the betterhelp.com website you actually don’t 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
