After they have actually been certified so there’s a preferred video on youtube which criticizes better help therapists…Michael Phelps Better Help Commercial.. and calls them lay counselors which is simply not real and the factor she calls them late therapists i want to talk about that briefly is she says one they don’t prescribe medication and two they do not handle court orders so let me attend to those two things due to the fact that 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 people in the united states who can recommend medical physicians or psychiatric medications could be your family doctor or a psychiatrist Michael Phelps Better Help Commercial
or a licensed professional nurse who’s had specific training in psychiatric medications so those are the only two types of people who can prescribe medication the huge majority of psychotherapists do not prescribe medication because they don’t hold those other degrees and where i live very very few psychiatrists also do treatment most psychiatrists focus on prescribing the medication and leave the treatment to the psychotherapists so that is not a valid criticism and then the 2nd criticism that they don’t handle court orders i will tell you in my own private practice i really tried to avoid handling court orders and i will show you why most of the time what would occur is i would get a phone call from someone who would be in a panic asking to have 5 sessions in a week because they had to go to court next week and they were trying to satisfy the requirement that they had actually gotten probably five or 6 months back now i comprehend that this happens i really do but that’s not in fact therapy that’s in fact doing something to please 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 neighborhood companies that can supply that type of therapy in a more reliable manner so i simply wished to deal with those two criticisms due to the fact that i don’t feel they stand so before i show you this little technique on the website for better help in regards to being able to discover somebody in your own area that you resonate with i ‘d like to state two things one is that the fit in between you and a therapist is super important and the design of a therapist makes a big distinction how comfy you feel with them how safe you feel with them and you could go to someone who has an extremely costly rate at a private practice and still not be happy with the therapist right i have actually had customers who have actually come to me after seeing somebody in my location where they were paying a high private practice rate and they come into my office and they ‘d state my previous therapist not did anything but speak about herself well that’s not appropriate so if that occurs to you either with a private practice or a community company or on better help change 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 have to find someone who’s an excellent suitable for you and in fact one of the
Does BetterHelp offer out-of-pocket counseling?
advantages i feel of the better health platform is that you have this ability to easily switch therapists so there’s some accountability because because clearly if better help has a therapist and people are constantly switching away from that person they get that feedback right if you go to someone in a private practice what do you inform and then it’s very hard to discover reviews unless you get a personal recommendation 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 reviews you can compose a review you can supply feedback and you can change therapists if you need to so before 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 handle psychotherapy clients just as an fyi since i get that concern a lot however i connected with them because people all over the country and in fact all over the world contact me regularly to say that they don’t have access to mental health services so better help supply service in 140 various nations 40 different languages i remain in alignment with their mission so there is a link below this video that will offer 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 choose baltimore maryland i do not live there
