After they’ve been accredited so there’s an incredibly popular video on youtube which slams better help therapists…Berkeley Well Being Institute Betterhelp.. and calls them lay counselors which is simply not real and the reason she calls them late counselors i wish to discuss that briefly is she states one they do not recommend medication and two they do not deal with court orders so let me attend to those two things since in the u.s as a psychotherapist you can not recommend medication unless you also occur to be an md or an lprn the only people in the united states who can recommend medical doctors or psychiatric medications could be your family doctor or a psychiatrist Berkeley Well Being Institute Betterhelp
or a certified expert nurse who’s had specific training in psychiatric medications so those are the only two kinds of people who can prescribe medication the large bulk of psychotherapists do not prescribe medication since they don’t hold those other degrees and where i live really very few psychiatrists also do therapy most psychiatrists concentrate on recommending the medication and leave the therapy to the psychotherapists so that is not a legitimate criticism and then the 2nd criticism that they don’t handle court orders i will tell you in my own private practice i truly tried to prevent dealing with court orders and i will share with you why the majority of the time what would happen is i would get a phone call from somebody 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 attempting to fulfill the requirement that they had actually gotten most likely 5 or 6 months earlier now i understand that this happens i really do however that’s not in fact therapy that’s in fact doing something to satisfy a court order and it’s not the kind of work i ever did and probably for the majority of court-ordered treatment there are community firms that can offer that type of treatment in a more efficient manner so i just wanted to deal with those 2 criticisms because i don’t feel they stand so before i share with you this little technique on the site for better help in regards to being able to find somebody in your own location that you resonate with i ‘d like to state 2 things one is that the fit between you and a therapist is very essential and the style of a therapist makes a huge difference how comfortable you feel with them how safe you feel with them and you might go to someone who has a really pricey rate at a private practice and still not enjoy with the therapist right i’ve had customers who’ve pertained to me after seeing somebody in my area where they were paying a high private practice rate and they enter into my office and they ‘d say my prior therapist not did anything but talk about herself well that’s not appropriate so if that occurs to you either with a private practice or a community firm or on better help switch therapists and if a therapist ever does something outright you can report it to the state licensing board so certainly the quality of the therapist differs no matter what their training or background and you need to discover someone who’s a good suitable for you and really one of the

benefits i feel of the much better health platform is that you have this capability to easily change therapists so there’s some accountability in that because clearly if better help has a therapist and people are always switching away from that individual they get that feedback right if you go to someone in a private practice what do you tell and then it’s very hard to discover reviews unless you get an individual suggestion to a private practice therapist so i do think that’s sort of an advantage of the better help platform that you can check out evaluations you can write an evaluation you can offer feedback and you can change therapists if you need to so prior to i show you how you can go onto the betterhelp platform and pick a therapist who resonates for you in your area however 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 clients just as an fyi because i get that question a lot however i associated with them because individuals all over the nation and really all over the world contact me frequently to state that they do not have access to mental health services so better help provide service in 140 different countries 40 different languages i remain in alignment 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 truly don’t get the choice up here to put your postal code in and see what therapists are available you have 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 don’t live there
