Talkspace Investor Presentation 2022

certified psychotherapist and i had a private practice for 20 years helping individuals recover from anxiety and injury…Talkspace Investor Presentation and after that likewise from the point of view that i have actually utilized better help as a client so today i’m going to speak about what it requires a psychotherapist in the u.s and what it takes to be a much better health therapist i likewise want to reveal you a bit of a technique on the better help website that enables you to look at who the therapists are in your location read their profiles and pick one that resonates with you so it’s something that’s a bit not quite hidden however kind of concealed on the site and i’m going to show you at the end and in between i likewise want to deal with some criticisms that i’ve become aware of better help therapists and i have actually listened to on youtube review videos so let’s get going so i very first want to make it clear that betterhelp only employs licensed specialists and they match people with a certified expert in your own state due to the fact that in the u.s we have this role that the therapist needs to be accredited in the state where you reside so what does it take to be licensed now clearly that differs a little bit state by state however i’m going to stroll you through what it takes to be

What is betterbetterhelp? Talkspace Investor Presentation

licensed in connecticut where i live and then inform you what else is needed to be a much better health therapist so to become licensed you need an academic degree in among a handful of locations so you might have a psychology phd or a master’s degree in clinical social work or marital relationship and family treatment or professional therapy and after that when you have your graduate degree you need 3 000 hours of direct client experience while you are being monitored by a specialist who holds the license you’re seeking and you require a minimum of a hundred hours of supervision with this person in which you discuss how you are supplying treatment to your customers so typically achieving this numerous scientific hours and this much supervision probably averages around three or 4 years of experience to get the medical hours to even then sit for the written exam and then you sit for the composed exam and then if you pass you get accredited so that’s what’s needed 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 an academic degree a strong number of medical hours and a minimum of 3 years of experience after they have actually been licensed so there’s an incredibly popular video on youtube which slams better help therapists and calls them lay therapists which is just not real and the reason she calls them late counselors i wish to speak about that briefly is she states one they don’t prescribe medication and 2 they don’t handle court orders so let me resolve those two things because in the u.s as a psychotherapist you can not recommend medication unless you likewise occur 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 Talkspace Investor Presentation

or a certified expert nurse who’s had specific training in psychiatric medications so those are the only two types of individuals who can recommend medication the large bulk of psychotherapists do not recommend medication because they do not hold those other degrees and where i live extremely really couple of psychiatrists also do treatment most psychiatrists concentrate on prescribing the medication and leave the treatment to the psychotherapists so that is not a valid criticism and after that the second criticism that they don’t handle court orders i will inform 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 take place is i would get a phone call from somebody who would be in a panic asking to have 5 sessions in a week since they needed to go to court next week and they were attempting to meet the requirement that they had actually received most likely 5 or six months earlier now i understand that this happens i truly do but that’s not in fact therapy that’s really doing something to please a court order and it’s not the type of work i ever did and probably for most court-ordered therapy there are neighborhood agencies that can provide that type of treatment in a more effective way so i simply wished to address those two criticisms because i don’t feel they stand so before i show you this little trick on the website for better help in terms of being able to find somebody in your own location that you resonate with i want to say 2 things one is that the fit between you and a therapist is very essential and the style of a therapist makes a big distinction how comfortable you feel with them how safe you feel with them and you might go to someone who has an extremely expensive rate at a private practice and still not enjoy with the therapist right i’ve had customers who have actually come to me after seeing somebody in my area where they were paying a high private practice rate and they enter into my workplace and they ‘d say my previous therapist not did anything however speak about herself well that’s not proper 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 differs no matter what their training or background and you have to discover someone who’s a good suitable for you and really one of the

Does BetterHelp offer out-of-pocket counseling?

advantages i feel of the much better health platform is that you have this ability to quickly switch therapists so there’s some accountability in that due to the fact that obviously if better help has a therapist and individuals are always switching far from that individual they get that feedback right if you go to someone in a private practice what do you inform and after that it’s really difficult to discover reviews unless you get an individual suggestion to a private practice therapist so i do believe that’s sort of an advantage of the better help platform that you can read reviews you can write a review you can offer feedback and you can change therapists if you require 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 area but i do have a link listed 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 due to the fact that i get that question a lot however i associated with them due to the fact that people all over the nation and really all over the world contact me frequently to say 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 objective so there is a link listed below this video that will offer you 10 percent off your first month so if you go to the betterhelp.com site you truly do not 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 choose baltimore maryland i do not live there
