extremely light counseling usually Talkspace Andrea Yeriazarian…the method a pastor is trained without like a counseling focus is we’re sort of like the emergency medical technicians the emergency situation people that show up with the ambulance and we diagnose and then we recommend people and we are continuously going hey here’s a spiritual area here’s are you perhaps you need to go process with someone that’s a bit more of a professional in that location so i’m not a specialist this is just my personal viewpoint is it helpful my experience therefore there’s five areas i’m going to take a look at i’m going to take a look at the pricing which is a big aspect the algorithm of connecting you to an actual counselor the technology how did that go the real recommendations of

my session over a month and then the faith element which is obviously really essential to me because you don’t want to recommend someone to something and after that you know perhaps they they affirm something or they say something that your church doesn’t believe in which could be the spectrum obviously therefore first of all on rate it was 320 for a month 80 bucks a week which include a weekly video session and unrestricted messaging which you understand what does that suggest it simply indicates a couple messages with your counselor but i was impressed that the price was not bad you understand i’ve done counseling in the past and it can be extremely pricey particularly if you’re getting somebody who is good at what they have actually 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 just adequately priced done some other therapy and marriage counseling and i what stands out to me on this was the marriage counseling we went to a pretty trusted institution a place that was popular published the the couple with the published uh authors and it was 80 dollars with a pastoral discount so that simply kind of leads you to believe what you understand the complete rate is pretty expensive therefore uh 320 dollars is not bad particularly and we’ll discuss this on the tech side the assistance was great you understand in the past when i have actually done counseling in both group or you understand individually you’re normally not communicating with your instructor continuously it’s usually just around your sessions however to construct a habit start digitally there’s something about more access to your counselor that i truly liked and my counselor was respectable at checking in on me and simply asking things throughout the week even when we were not meeting so there was a process for you to get a discount if that was not um if it was excessive they asked your financial situation so you can receive less i didn’t go through that procedure also talk to your insurance service provider if you have it to find out if you certify however the prices i felt specifically for the um the know-how of my therapist i was really pleased what i got for the 320 and so um and after that they give you different choices when you cancel where you can type of try it for an extra set of time if you wish to if you want to continue on they do charge you regular monthly therefore you have to pay for a month of in advance and so that makes sense but i i believe it i was very amazed by the rate it’s still a great deal of cash i understand for a lot of people um you know someone like me i don’t use therapy every week and even every year but i do i have actually found i delight in the perspective
um every 5 years or so or if something’s going on that i can’t process especially because of some youth uh such things that occur in my childhood i there’s always something i’m discovering myself but i’ve constantly enjoyed it so pricing respectable number two the algorithm of really recommending they go through a whole procedure where they ask you a series of questions prior to you ever logged in you know mail age what you’re searching for to get out of counseling they ask them like health and have you been depressed and things like that how are your sleeping routines some basic questions that are all pretty standard um i and i believed the concerns were strong um ultimately they do get in we’ll discuss this in the face area they ask you like what your faith is and your
denomination and they were respectable about asking some faith related questions that i was in fact very pleased with i wasn’t anticipating a lot on the faith area however i was impressed by how they engaged that part of who i am as an individual since that is essential to me and crucial to a great deal of individuals um they basically took that it took anywhere but they state 24 to 48 hours to sort of assign you to a therapist and uh i got designated quite fast i believe it was within 24 hours got e-mail informed it said here’s the person i saw an image a bio i might see their expertise i could see other reviews about them and then it was kind of like try try them out and i i and i might pick to have someone else if i wished to and even when you stop they’re excellent at like asking a lot of concerns around you understand what you think about your accounts or how did that session did they appear i indicate they’re they’re truly trying to make sure everyone is strong and i could change my therapist at any time there was no concern with altering um my therapist was excellent about that too like you understand was asking a lot of concerns which is a strange balance due to the fact that you want a counselor that’s challenging you but also um you understand someone that you like that you can trust so it’s a difficult relationship i have actually been pretty um benefit i have actually taken advantage of a lot of great counseling so i believe i have not actually been paired with someone that i didn’t get along with but i was impressed by the algorithm the concerns and how the entire experience worked next the innovation whatever happens through the site so it’s um it’s that you get alerts on text and email and so forth but basically you engage and fulfill through their web website so betterhelp.com you have an account and pretty much it starts a private 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 set up whatever within the app you um you satisfy the video technology it’s sort of like a google hangout that’s developed 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 Talkspace Andrea Yeriazarian
What does our BetterHelp Review cover?
just thing that was sort of unusual was usually you can alter your audio and video inputs um by picking the various locations i couldn’t determine how to do that as somebody who has some nicer gear i generally like to check it’s utilizing the best mic input not a big deal but that’s more of a technical nerd kind of element but i was impressed by how whatever worked you know web-based stuff and not software-based stuff or like you understand uh software application sitting on your computer often isn’t as good you understand zoom is downloaded on your computer system versus google hangouts is in in the cloud sometimes that could be hit or miss but i was extremely impressed by the whole quality and my my uh my therapist was older and he appeared to understand how to run all of it and it was really reliable i was impressed by the engagement from him via messaging uh the important things is i would get emails that he had published a message but because of security reasons that makes sense none of the message remained in my e-mail i needed to constantly click onto the site to see things i type of desire i could open that up but i comprehend that possibly you don’t want your personal details that is happening in between therapist in your inbox i also got text suggestions you understand i needed to choose in for that but like 20 minutes before my session i was able to schedule
whatever and you understand quickly include it to my calendar however in general the innovation was very excellent you understand my counselor sent me some things and pdfs to procedure prior to our first meeting i filled it out turn it in i mean it wasn’t the most high-tech experience however it worked effectively and so i was very amazed with the overall innovation the next area is the real vice my counselor was very was extremely experienced and had a lot of experience and they were great and i enjoyed it they it was a great balance Talkspace Andrea Yeriazarian
