taken pleasure in the investment both in time and money in getting therapy…Adding A Profile Picture Talkspace… so i wished to try better help so that i can recommend and kind of see how the process went i will state as a disclaimer i am not an expert therapist psychologist i’m seminary trained um which typically simply indicates extremely light counseling generally 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 identify and after that we advise individuals and we are constantly going hey here’s a spiritual area here’s are you possibly you require to go process with somebody that’s a bit more of a specialist in that area so i’m not a professional this is just my individual opinion is it helpful my experience and so there’s five locations i’m going to take a look at i’m going to look at the pricing which is a big aspect the algorithm of linking you to an actual therapist the innovation how did that go the real guidance of

my session over a month and after that the faith component which is clearly truly important to me due to the fact that you don’t wish to advise somebody to something and then you understand maybe they they verify something or they state something that your church doesn’t believe in which could be the spectrum obviously therefore first off on rate it was 320 for a month 80 bucks a week which include a weekly video session and unlimited messaging which you understand what does that indicate it simply indicates a couple messages with your therapist however i was impressed that the price was not bad you know i’ve done therapy in the past and it can be extremely expensive specifically if you’re getting somebody who is good at what they’ve done i’ve both done it when i was in seminary i had to go through some therapy a part of my program and it was just adequately priced done some other counseling and marriage therapy and i what sticks out to me on this was the marriage therapy we went to a quite respectable organization a place that was popular released the the couple with the released uh authors and it was 80 dollars with a pastoral discount rate so that just type of leads you to believe what you know the complete cost is pretty expensive therefore uh 320 dollars is okay especially and we’ll speak about this on the tech side the assistance was very good you understand in the past when i’ve done therapy in both group or you understand separately you’re usually not communicating with your trainer constantly it’s generally simply around your sessions but to build a habit start digitally there’s something about more access to your therapist that i really liked and my therapist was pretty good at signing 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 too much they asked your monetary situation so you can qualify for less i didn’t go through that procedure also contact your insurance coverage supplier if you have it to discover if you qualify but the prices i felt specifically for the um the expertise of my therapist i was really satisfied what i got for the 320 therefore um and after that they offer you different choices when you cancel where you can sort of try it for an extra set of time if you wish to if you wish to continue they do charge you month-to-month and so you need to spend for a month of ahead of time and so that makes sense however i i believe it i was very impressed by the rate it’s still a lot of money i understand for a lot of individuals um you know somebody like me i do not use counseling each week and even every year but i do i have discovered i enjoy the perspective
um every five years or so or if something’s going on that i can’t process particularly because of some childhood uh such things that happen in my childhood i there’s constantly something i’m learning more about myself but i have actually constantly enjoyed it so pricing respectable second the algorithm of in fact advising they go through a whole 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 get out of counseling they inquire like health and have you been depressed and things like that how are your sleeping habits some general concerns that are all pretty standard um i and i thought the concerns were solid um eventually they do get in we’ll speak about 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 associated questions that i was actually very satisfied 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 an individual because that is very important to me and important to a lot of individuals um they basically took that it took anywhere however they state 24 to 48 hours to sort of designate you to a counselor and uh i got appointed pretty quick i think it was within 24 hours got e-mail alerted it stated here’s the individual i saw an image a bio i could see their expertise i could see other evaluations about them and then it was sort of like try attempt them out and i i and i could pick to have somebody else if i wanted to and even when you quit they’re great at like asking a great deal of concerns around you understand what you consider your accounts or how did that session did they appear i mean they’re they’re really trying to make sure everyone is solid and i could alter my therapist at any time there was no problem with changing um my therapist was excellent about that too like you know was asking a great deal of concerns which is an odd balance because you desire a counselor that’s tough you but also um you understand somebody that you like that you can rely on so it’s a tough relationship i’ve been quite um benefit i have actually taken advantage of a lot of excellent counseling so i think i have not truly been paired with somebody that i didn’t agree but i was impressed by the algorithm the questions and how the entire experience worked next the innovation everything takes place through the site so it’s um it’s that you get notifications on text and email and so forth however basically you meet and communicate through their web website so betterhelp.com you have an account and practically it begins a private chat with the person you’re counseling when you do change counselor that data goes away a minimum of access from your end and but for example you schedule everything within the app you um you satisfy the video technology it’s sort of like a google hangout that’s constructed into the the actual site and the video was great um my my my counselor had the video on it worked really smoothly um the Adding A Profile Picture Talkspace

just thing that was sort of strange was generally you can alter your audio and video inputs um by choosing the different areas i could not find out how to do that as somebody who has some nicer equipment i generally like to check it’s utilizing the ideal mic input not a big deal but that’s more of a technical geek sort of aspect but i was impressed by how everything worked you understand web-based stuff and not software-based stuff or like you know uh software resting on your computer system in some cases isn’t as good you understand zoom is downloaded on your computer system versus google hangouts remains in in the cloud often that could be hit or miss however i was really pleased by the whole quality and my my uh my therapist was older and he seemed to understand how to run everything and it was extremely reliable i was impressed by the engagement from him by means of messaging uh the important things is i would get e-mails that he had actually posted a message but because of security factors which makes sense none of the message remained in my e-mail i needed to always click onto the site to see things i kind of desire i might open that up but i understand that possibly you don’t desire your personal information that is happening between therapist in your inbox i also got text pointers you know i had to choose in for that but like 20 minutes prior to my session i had the ability to schedule
everything and you know quickly add it to my calendar however overall the technology was really excellent you understand my counselor sent me some pdfs and things to procedure before our very first meeting i filled it out turn it in i mean it wasn’t the most modern experience however it worked extremely well and so i was extremely pleased with the overall technology the next area is the actual vice my counselor was very was very proficient and had a lot of experience and they were excellent and i enjoyed it they it was a great balance Adding A Profile Picture Talkspace
