really light therapy normally Julian Says Betterhelp…the method a pastor is trained without like a therapy focus is we’re kind of like the emts the emergency situation individuals that show up with the ambulance and we diagnose and after that we suggest people and we are continuously going hey here’s a spiritual area here’s are you maybe you require to go process with somebody that’s a little bit more of a specialist in that area so i’m not an expert this is just my individual opinion is it valuable my experience and so there’s 5 areas i’m going to look at i’m going to take a look at the prices which is a big factor the algorithm of connecting you to a real counselor the technology how did that go the actual recommendations of
Is BetterHelp an online therapy company?
my session over a month and after that the faith component which is clearly actually essential to me due to the fact that you don’t want to recommend somebody to something and after that you know perhaps they they verify something or they state something that your church doesn’t believe in which could be the spectrum of course therefore first off on cost it was 320 for a month 80 bucks a week that include a weekly video session and endless messaging which you understand what does that imply it simply suggests a couple messages with your therapist but i was impressed that the price was not bad you know i have actually done counseling in the past and it can be very pricey especially if you’re getting somebody who is proficient at what they’ve done i have actually both done it when i remained in seminary i had to go through some therapy a part of my program and it was just properly priced done some other counseling and marital relationship therapy and i what sticks out to me on this was the marital relationship counseling we went to a quite respectable organization a location that was well known released 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 full cost is quite pricey and so uh 320 bucks is not bad particularly and we’ll speak about this on the tech side the support was excellent you understand in the past when i have actually done therapy in both group or you know individually you’re normally not engaging with your instructor constantly it’s usually just around your sessions however to construct a routine start digitally there’s something about more access to your therapist that i really liked and my counselor was respectable at signing in on me and just asking things throughout the week even when we were not fulfilling so there was a procedure for you to get a discount if that was not um if it was too much they asked your financial scenario so you can receive less i didn’t go through that procedure also check with your insurance coverage service provider if you have it to learn if you qualify however the pricing i felt specifically for the um the know-how of my counselor i was really satisfied what i got for the 320 and so um and then they provide you different alternatives when you cancel where you can sort of try it for an extra set of time if you want to if you wish to continue they do charge you month-to-month and so you need to pay for a month of in advance and so which makes sense but i i believe it i was extremely amazed by the cost it’s still a lot of cash i understand for a great deal of people um you know somebody like me i do not utilize counseling weekly or perhaps every year but i do i have discovered i delight in the perspective
um every five years or two or if something’s going on that i can’t process particularly because of some youth uh such things that happen in my youth i there’s always something i’m finding out about myself however i’ve always enjoyed it so pricing pretty good second the algorithm of in fact advising they go through a whole process where they ask you a series of questions before you ever logged in you know mail age what you’re trying to find to get out of counseling they inquire like health and have you been depressed and things like that how are your sleeping routines some basic concerns that are all pretty standard um i and i believed the concerns were strong um eventually they do get in we’ll talk about this in the face section they ask you like what your faith is and your
denomination and they were respectable about asking some faith related concerns that i was really very amazed with i wasn’t expecting a lot on the faith area however i was impressed by how they engaged that part of who i am as a person because that is necessary to me and crucial to a great deal of individuals um they pretty much took that it took anywhere but 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 hours got e-mail alerted it said here’s the individual i saw a picture a bio i could see their know-how i might see other evaluations about them and then it was kind of like try attempt them out and i i and i might choose to have someone else if i wished to and even when you quit they’re very good at like asking a lot of questions around you understand what you consider your accounts or how did that session did they show up i imply they’re they’re really trying to make sure everyone is solid and i might alter my therapist at any time there was no concern with altering um my counselor was great about that too like you know was asking a lot of concerns which is an unusual balance due to the fact that you want a counselor that’s challenging you but likewise um you know someone that you like that you can trust so it’s a difficult relationship i have actually been quite um benefit i’ve taken advantage of a lot of excellent therapy so i think i haven’t actually been paired with somebody that i didn’t get along with however i was impressed by the algorithm the concerns and how the whole experience worked next the technology whatever takes place through the website so it’s um it’s that you get notifications on text and e-mail and so forth but basically you meet and engage through their web portal so betterhelp.com you have an account and pretty much it starts a personal chat with the person you’re counseling when you do change therapist that data goes away at least access from your end and but for example you set up everything within the app you um you meet the video innovation it’s sort of like a google hangout that’s constructed into the the actual website and the video was fantastic um my my my therapist had the video on it worked really smoothly um the Julian Says Betterhelp

everything and you understand easily add it to my calendar however overall the technology was very impressive you know my counselor sent me some pdfs and things to process before our first meeting i filled it out turn it in i indicate it wasn’t the most state-of-the-art experience however it worked extremely well and so i was very amazed with the total technology the next section is the actual vice my counselor was very was really knowledgeable and had a great deal of experience and they were great and i enjoyed it they it was an excellent balance Julian Says Betterhelp
