3 000 hours of direct customer experience while you are being…Shane Betterhelp …monitored by a specialist who holds the license you’re seeking and you require a minimum of a hundred hours of supervision with this individual in which you go over how you are providing treatment to your customers so usually achieving this lots of clinical hours and this much supervision probably averages around 3 or four years of experience to get the medical hours to even then sit for the written exam and then you sit for the composed examination and then if you pass you get licensed so that’s what’s required to be certified as a psychotherapist in connecticut and then if you want to work for better help you require a minimum of 3 years of experience after you have actually been certified so you are absolutely 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 three years of experience after they’ve been certified so there’s a very popular video on youtube which criticizes better help therapists and calls them lay therapists which is simply not real and the reason she calls them late therapists i want to discuss that briefly is she states one they don’t recommend medication and 2 they don’t deal with court orders so let me deal with those two things because 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 recommend psychiatric medications or medical doctors could be your family doctor or a psychiatrist Shane Betterhelp
or a licensed expert nurse who’s had particular training in psychiatric medications so those are the only 2 types of people who can prescribe medication the large majority of psychotherapists do not recommend medication due to the fact that they don’t hold those other degrees and where i live really very few psychiatrists likewise do therapy most psychiatrists concentrate on prescribing the medication and leave the treatment to the psychotherapists so that is not a legitimate criticism and then 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 dealing with court orders and i will share with you why the majority 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 fulfill the requirement that they had received most likely five or 6 months earlier now i understand that this happens i really do however that’s not really therapy that’s actually doing something to satisfy a court order and it’s not the kind of work i ever did and most likely for a lot of court-ordered treatment there are community firms that can offer that type of treatment in a more reliable way so i just wished to address those two criticisms because i do not 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 ‘d like to say 2 things one is that the fit between you and a therapist is super crucial and the design of a therapist makes a huge distinction how comfy you feel with them how safe you feel with them and you might go to somebody who has an extremely costly rate at a private practice and still not enjoy with the therapist right i have actually had clients who’ve concerned me after seeing someone in my area where they were paying a high private practice rate and they come into my office and they ‘d state my prior therapist not did anything but discuss herself well that’s not appropriate so if that takes place to you either with a private practice or a neighborhood 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 discover someone who’s an excellent fit for you and really one of 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 because obviously if better help has a therapist and people are constantly changing far from that person they get that feedback right if you go to someone in a private practice what do you tell and after that it’s extremely tough to discover reviews unless you get a personal suggestion to a private practice therapist so i do believe that’s sort of a benefit of the better help platform that you can read reviews you can write a review you can supply feedback and you can change therapists if you require to so prior to i share with you how you can go onto the betterhelp platform and pick a therapist who resonates for you in your location but i do have a link below this video that offers you with 10 off your very 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 however i connected with them because people all over the nation and actually all over the world contact me regularly to say that they do not have access to mental health services so better help offer service in 140 different countries 40 different languages i remain in positioning with their mission so there is a link below this video that will give you 10 percent off your first month so if you go to the betterhelp.com site you really don’t get the choice up here to put your postal code in and see what therapists are 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
