I’m going to provide an evaluation of betterhelp.com from the perspective as a pastor ….Media Relations Campaign To Promote Betterhelp…as someone who deals with online ministry and we have individuals that engage from us from all around the world i often get asked do you recommend a therapist or a counselor or a psychologist and it can be hard you understand if you’re near a church among our churches it’s genuine easy because our church and most churches have actually like a vetted recommendation list that we keep on hand to type of advise in various focuses it’s normally individuals that we agree with theologically and we trust their practice but you get beyond your physical like geo footprint and it can be hard i’ve in the past use focus on the household referral list i usually agree with what they believe and i trust their procedure doesn’t indicate i i know everybody on the list is verified but it’s a quite solid list but if you get internationally it ends up being the wild west so i have actually started to take notice of online therapy over the last couple years i did a video way back where i did a online medical professional visit this was like i don’t understand 5 8 years back therefore i have actually been wanting to try betterhelp.com and so there were some things i wished to process with a therapist
and as somebody who’s gone through therapy in the past both individually and likewise marital relationship counseling i have actually experienced the advantage i’ve frequently found counseling and conference with a psychologist and so forth as kind of life hacking because it’s getting somebody outside of your worry your sphere of influence and them speaking into your life and they normally see things that possibly you’ve heard before but perhaps you required an outsider to validate so i have actually always enjoyed the investment both in time and money in getting therapy so i wished to check out better help so that i can recommend and type of see how the procedure went i will state as a disclaimer i am not a professional therapist psychologist i’m seminary qualified um which usually just implies extremely light counseling typically the way a pastor is trained without like a therapy focus is we’re type of like the emergency medical technicians the emergency situation individuals that show up with the ambulance and we detect and after that we suggest individuals and we are continuously going hey here’s a spiritual location here’s are you possibly you require to go process with somebody that’s a bit more of an expert in that area so i’m not a professional this is simply my personal viewpoint is it practical my experience and so there’s 5 locations i’m going to take a look at i’m going to look at the rates which is a huge element the algorithm of linking you to an actual counselor the technology how did that go the actual guidance of
Is BetterHelp an online therapy company?
my session over a month and after that the faith aspect which is undoubtedly truly important to me because you do not want to recommend someone to something and then you know maybe they they affirm something or they state something that your church doesn’t believe in which could be the spectrum obviously therefore to begin with on cost it was 320 for a month 80 bucks a week which include a weekly video session and limitless messaging which you know what does that indicate it simply implies a couple messages with your counselor however i was impressed that the price was not bad you understand i have actually done counseling in the past and it can be really costly especially if you’re getting somebody who is good at what they’ve done i’ve both done it when i was in seminary i needed to go through some therapy a part of my program and it was simply properly priced done some other therapy and marriage counseling and i what stands apart to me on this was the marital relationship counseling we went to a pretty trusted institution a location that was popular published the the couple with the released uh authors and it was 80 dollars with a pastoral discount so that just sort of leads you to believe what you know the complete rate is pretty costly and so uh 320 dollars is okay particularly and we’ll speak about this on the tech side the support was great you know in the past when i’ve done therapy in both group or you understand individually you’re usually not communicating with your trainer constantly it’s typically simply around your sessions however to construct a practice start digitally there’s something about more access to your counselor that i truly liked and my counselor was pretty good at checking in on me and simply asking things throughout the week even when we were not fulfilling so there was a process for you to get a discount rate if that was not um if it was excessive they asked your financial scenario so you can qualify for less i didn’t go through that process also contact your insurance service provider if you have it to discover if you certify but the pricing i felt especially for the um the competence of my therapist i was extremely satisfied what i got for the 320 therefore um and then they give you different choices when you cancel where you can sort of try it for an extra set of time if you want to if you want to continue they do charge you monthly therefore you need to spend for a month of ahead of time therefore which makes sense however i i think it i was very pleased by the cost it’s still a great deal of money i understand for a great deal of people um you know somebody like me i do not utilize therapy weekly or perhaps every year but i do i have found i enjoy the point of view
um every five years or so or if something’s going on that i can’t process especially because of some childhood uh such things that occur in my childhood i there’s always something i’m discovering myself however i’ve constantly enjoyed it so pricing pretty good number two the algorithm of really recommending they go through an entire process where they ask you a series of concerns before you ever visited you understand mail age what you’re looking for to leave counseling they ask them like health and have you been depressed and stuff like that how are your sleeping practices some basic concerns that are all pretty standard um i and i believed the questions were solid um ultimately they do get in we’ll discuss this in the face section they ask you like what your faith is and your
denomination and they were pretty good about asking some faith related concerns that i was actually extremely impressed with i wasn’t anticipating a lot on the faith location but i was impressed by how they engaged that part of who i am as an individual since that is essential to me and important to a lot of individuals um they pretty much took that it took anywhere however they say 24 to two days to kind of assign you to a therapist and uh i got designated pretty fast i believe it was within 24 hr got e-mail informed it said here’s the individual i saw an image a bio i might see their competence i could see other evaluations about them and then it was kind of like try attempt them out and i i and i might pick to have someone else if i wanted to and even when you quit they’re excellent at like asking a great deal of concerns around you know what you think about your accounts or how did that session did they show up i imply they’re they’re truly trying to make sure everybody is strong and i might alter my therapist at any time there was no problem with altering um my therapist was fantastic about that too like you know was asking a great deal of concerns which is a weird balance since you want a therapist that’s difficult you however likewise um you know somebody that you like that you can rely on so it’s a hard relationship i have actually been pretty um benefit i’ve benefited from a lot of excellent therapy so i think i haven’t truly been paired with somebody that i didn’t get along with but i was impressed by the algorithm the questions and how the entire experience worked next the technology everything happens through the site so it’s um it’s that you get alerts on text and email etc but basically you fulfill and engage through their web portal so betterhelp.com you have an account and basically it begins a personal chat with the person you’re counseling when you do alter therapist that data goes away at least access from your end and but for example you schedule whatever within the app you um you satisfy the video technology it’s sort of like a google hangout that’s constructed into the the real site and the video was terrific um my my my therapist had the video on it worked really smoothly um the Media Relations Campaign To Promote Betterhelp

just thing that was sort of weird was generally you can alter your audio and video inputs um by picking the various areas i could not figure out how to do that as somebody who has some better gear i usually like to double check it’s utilizing the right mic input not a big deal but that’s more of a technical nerd kind of aspect however i was impressed by how everything worked you know web-based stuff and not software-based things or like you understand uh software application sitting on your computer often isn’t as excellent you know zoom is downloaded on your computer versus google hangouts is in in the cloud sometimes that could be hit or miss however i was really amazed by the entire quality and my my uh my counselor was older and he appeared to know how to run all of it and it was extremely reliable i was impressed by the engagement from him via messaging uh the important things is i would get e-mails that he had published a message but because of security factors which makes sense none of the message remained in my email i had to always click onto the site to see things i kind of desire i could open that up but i understand that possibly you do not desire your personal info that is occurring in between counselor in your inbox i likewise got text suggestions you understand i needed to decide in for that however like 20 minutes before my session i was able to schedule
everything and you know quickly include it to my calendar however overall the technology was extremely impressive you know my counselor sent me some things and pdfs to procedure prior to our very first conference i filled it out turn it in i mean it wasn’t the most state-of-the-art experience but it worked very well therefore i was very impressed with the general technology the next area is the actual vice my counselor was really was very skilled and had a lot of experience and they were great and i enjoyed it they it was an excellent balance Media Relations Campaign To Promote Betterhelp
