After they’ve been accredited so there’s an incredibly popular video on youtube which criticizes better help therapists…Julia Thomas Betterhelp.. and calls them lay therapists which is simply not true and the factor she calls them late counselors i wish to speak about 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 2 things because in the u.s as a psychotherapist you can not prescribe medication unless you likewise occur to be an md or an lprn the only people in the united states who can prescribe psychiatric medications or medical physicians could be your family doctor or a psychiatrist Julia Thomas Betterhelp
or a certified professional nurse who’s had specific training in psychiatric medications so those are the only 2 types of people who can recommend medication the vast majority of psychotherapists do not recommend medication due to the fact that they don’t hold those other degrees and where i live extremely very couple of psychiatrists likewise do treatment most psychiatrists concentrate on prescribing the medication and leave the therapy to the psychotherapists so that is not a valid criticism and after that the second criticism that they do not handle court orders i will inform you in my own private practice i actually attempted 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 call from somebody who would remain in a panic asking to have five sessions in a week since they had to go to court next week and they were trying to fulfill the requirement that they had gotten most likely five or 6 months back now i understand that this occurs i really do but that’s not actually therapy that’s actually doing something to please 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 community firms that can provide that kind of treatment in a more efficient way so i just wanted to resolve those 2 criticisms because i do not feel they’re valid so prior to i show you this little trick on the website for better help in terms of being able to find someone in your own location that you resonate with i wish to state two things one is that the fit in between you and a therapist is super essential and the design 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 an extremely pricey rate at a private practice and still not be happy with the therapist right i have actually had customers who have actually pertained to me after seeing somebody in my location where they were paying a high private practice rate and they enter into my office and they ‘d say my prior therapist did nothing but talk about herself well that’s not proper so if that occurs to you either with a private practice or a neighborhood agency or on better help change therapists and if a therapist ever does something egregious 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 have to find somebody who’s a good suitable for you and actually among the
Does BetterHelp offer out-of-pocket counseling?
advantages i feel of the better health platform is that you have this ability to quickly switch therapists so there’s some responsibility in that due to the fact that clearly if better help has a therapist and individuals are always switching away from that individual they get that feedback right if you go to somebody in a private practice what do you tell and after that it’s very tough 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 read evaluations you can write a review you can offer feedback and you can change therapists if you need to so before i share with you how you can go onto the betterhelp platform and choose a therapist who resonates for you in your location however i do have a link listed below this video that provides 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 since i get that concern a lot but i connected with them because people all over the country and actually all over the world contact me frequently to say that they don’t have access to mental health services so better help supply service in 140 different countries 40 different languages i’m in alignment with their mission 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 website you really do not get the choice 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 don’t live there
