I’m going to give an evaluation of betterhelp.com from the point of view as a pastor ….Talk Space Depression…as somebody who handles online ministry and we have individuals that engage from us from all around the world i often get asked do you suggest a therapist or a therapist or a psychologist and it can be hard you understand if you’re near a church one of our churches it’s genuine simple due to the fact that our church and most churches have like a vetted referral list that we keep on hand to kind of suggest in different focuses it’s generally people 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 usage concentrate on the family recommendation list i normally agree with what they think and i trust their process doesn’t suggest i i know everybody on the list is validated however it’s a pretty strong list but if you get globally it becomes the wild west so i have actually begun to focus on online therapy over the last couple years i did a video way back where i did a online physician see this resembled i do not know 5 8 years earlier and so i’ve been wanting to try betterhelp.com therefore there were some things i wanted to process with a therapist
and as someone who’s gone through counseling in the past both separately and likewise marriage counseling i have actually experienced the benefit i’ve often discovered counseling and meeting with a psychologist and so forth as kind of life hacking since it’s getting someone outside of your worry your sphere of influence and them speaking into your life and they normally see things that perhaps you’ve heard before however maybe you needed an outsider to confirm so i have actually always enjoyed the investment both in time and cash in getting counseling so i wished to check out better help so that i can advise 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 generally just implies very light counseling generally the way a pastor is trained without like a counseling focus is we’re type of like the emergency medical technicians the emergency situation people that show up with the ambulance and we detect and then we advise people and we are continuously going hey here’s a spiritual location here’s are you possibly you need to go process with someone that’s a little bit more of a professional because location so i’m not a specialist this is simply my personal opinion is it helpful my experience therefore there’s five areas i’m going to look at i’m going to take a look at the pricing which is a huge factor the algorithm of linking you to an actual therapist the technology how did that go the real suggestions of
Is BetterHelp an online therapy company?
my session over a month and after that the faith component which is undoubtedly actually crucial to me since you don’t want to recommend somebody to something and after that you understand maybe they they affirm something or they state something that your church doesn’t believe in which could be the spectrum of course and so first of all on price it was 320 for a month 80 bucks a week that include a weekly video session and unrestricted messaging which you know what does that indicate it just indicates a couple messages with your therapist however i was impressed that the rate was not bad you know i’ve done counseling in the past and it can be extremely costly specifically if you’re getting someone who is proficient at what they have actually done i have actually both done it when i remained in seminary i needed to go through some therapy a part of my program and it was just properly priced done some other therapy and marital relationship counseling and i what stands out to me on this was the marital relationship counseling we went to a quite respectable institution a location that was popular released the the couple with the released uh authors and it was 80 bucks with a pastoral discount so that just sort of leads you to think what you understand the complete price is pretty costly therefore uh 320 dollars is okay particularly and we’ll talk 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 know separately you’re normally not engaging with your instructor constantly it’s generally just around your sessions but to construct a habit start digitally there’s something about more access to your counselor that i actually liked and my counselor was respectable at checking in on me and just asking things throughout the week even when we were not satisfying so there was a procedure for you to get a discount if that was not um if it was excessive they asked your financial circumstance so you can receive less i didn’t go through that procedure also contact your insurance supplier if you have it to find out if you certify however the prices i felt specifically for the um the know-how of my counselor i was very amazed what i got for the 320 therefore um and after that they offer you different options when you cancel where you can type of try it for an extra set of time if you want to if you wish to advance they do charge you monthly therefore you need to spend for a month of beforehand therefore that makes sense however i i believe it i was really satisfied by the rate it’s still a great deal of cash i understand for a great deal of individuals um you understand somebody like me i don’t use counseling each week or perhaps every year but i do i have actually found i delight in the perspective
um every 5 years or two or if something’s going on that i can’t process specifically because of some youth uh such things that occur in my youth i there’s constantly something i’m finding out about myself but i have actually constantly enjoyed it so pricing respectable number two the algorithm of really advising they go through an entire process where they ask you a series of questions prior to you ever logged in you understand mail age what you’re trying to find to leave counseling they ask them like health and have you been depressed and stuff like that how are your sleeping routines some general questions that are all quite standard um i and i thought the concerns were strong um eventually 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 associated questions that i was really really satisfied 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 a person because that is very important to me and essential to a great deal of people um they pretty much took that it took anywhere however they state 24 to 48 hours to type of assign you to a counselor and uh i got appointed pretty fast i think it was within 24 hours got email informed it said here’s the individual i saw a photo a bio i might see their know-how i could see other reviews about them and after that it was type of like try attempt them out and i i and i might choose to have somebody else if i wished to and even when you stop they’re very good at like asking a lot of questions around you know what you think about your accounts or how did that session did they appear i imply they’re they’re truly attempting to make certain everybody is strong and i could alter my counselor at any time there was no concern with altering um my counselor was great about that too like you understand was asking a great deal of concerns which is an odd balance since you want a therapist that’s tough you however also um you know someone that you like that you can trust so it’s a hard relationship i have actually been quite um benefit i have actually gained from a great deal of good therapy so i believe i haven’t really been paired with somebody that i didn’t agree however i was impressed by the algorithm the concerns and how the whole experience worked next the technology whatever takes place through the site so it’s um it’s that you get notices on text and e-mail etc however basically you engage and fulfill through their web website so betterhelp.com you have an account and basically it begins a personal chat with the individual you’re counseling when you do change counselor that data goes away at least gain access to from your end and but for example you schedule whatever within the app you um you fulfill the video technology it’s type of like a google hangout that’s built into the the real site and the video was terrific um my my my counselor had the video on it worked extremely smoothly um the Talk Space Depression
