licensed psychotherapist and i had a private practice for 20 years helping individuals recuperate from anxiety and injury…This Video Is Sponsored By Betterhelp and after that likewise from the viewpoint that i’ve utilized better help as a client so today i’m going to talk about what it requires a psychotherapist in the u.s and what it requires a better health therapist i likewise want to show you a bit of a technique on the better help website that enables you to take a 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 little bit not quite surprise but kind of concealed on the site and i’m going to reveal you at the end and in between i also wish to resolve some criticisms that i’ve become aware of better help therapists and i’ve listened to on youtube evaluation videos so let’s start so i first want to make it clear that betterhelp only employs licensed experts and they match people with a licensed specialist 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 certainly that varies a little bit state by state but i’m going to stroll you through what it takes to be

accredited in connecticut where i live and after that inform you what else is required to be a better health therapist so to become certified you need an academic degree in among a handful of areas so you could have a psychology phd or a master’s degree in scientific social work or marriage and family treatment or professional counseling and after that once you have your academic degree you require 3 000 hours of direct customer experience while you are being monitored by a specialist who holds the license you’re looking for and you require a minimum of a hundred hours of guidance with this individual in which you talk about how you are offering treatment to your customers so typically accomplishing this lots of clinical hours and this much supervision most likely averages around three or 4 years of experience to get the clinical hours to even then sit for the composed exam and then you sit for the composed test and after that 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 need a minimum of three years of experience after you’ve been accredited so you are certainly not getting interns on better help you’re getting a therapist with an academic degree a solid number of medical hours and a minimum of three years of experience after they’ve been certified so there’s an incredibly popular video on youtube which slams better help therapists and calls them lay therapists which is simply not true and the reason she calls them late therapists i wish to speak about that briefly is she states one they do not recommend medication and 2 they don’t handle court orders so let me address those 2 things since in the u.s as a psychotherapist you can not prescribe medication unless you also occur to be an md or an lprn the only individuals in the united states who can prescribe medical physicians or psychiatric medications could be your family doctor or a psychiatrist This Video Is Sponsored By Betterhelp

or a licensed expert nurse who’s had particular training in psychiatric medications so those are the only 2 types of individuals who can prescribe medication the large majority of psychotherapists do not recommend medication since they don’t hold those other degrees and where i live really very few psychiatrists also do treatment most psychiatrists focus 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 deal with court orders i will inform you in my own private practice i actually tried to avoid handling court orders and i will show you why most of the time what would happen is i would get a telephone call from someone who would remain in a panic asking to have 5 sessions in a week since they needed to go to court next week and they were trying to meet the requirement that they had actually received most likely five or six months earlier now i understand that this takes place i actually do however that’s not really therapy that’s in fact doing something to please a court order and it’s not the type of work i ever did and most likely for many court-ordered treatment there are neighborhood companies that can supply that type of therapy in a more effective manner so i simply wanted to resolve those two criticisms due to the fact that i don’t feel they’re valid so prior to i share with you this little technique on the website for better help in regards to having the ability to discover someone in your own location that you resonate with i wish to state 2 things one is that the fit in between you and a therapist is super essential 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 be happy with the therapist right i have actually had customers who’ve pertained to me after seeing someone 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 did nothing however speak about herself well that’s not suitable so if that occurs to you either with a private practice or a neighborhood 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 definitely the quality of the therapist varies no matter what their training or background and you have to find somebody who’s a good fit for you and actually among the

benefits i feel of the better health platform is that you have this ability to easily change therapists so there’s some accountability in that since certainly if better help has a therapist and people are always changing far from that person they get that feedback right if you go to somebody in a private practice what do you inform and then it’s extremely tough to find reviews unless you get an individual suggestion to a private practice therapist so i do believe that’s sort of a benefit 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 select a therapist who resonates for you in your location but i do have a link below this video that provides 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 since i get that concern a lot but i affiliated with them since people all over the nation and in fact all over the world contact me frequently to say that they don’t have access to psychological health services so better help provide service in 140 various countries 40 various languages i remain in alignment with their mission 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 don’t get the option up here to put your zip code in and see what therapists are readily available you need 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 don’t live there
