delighted in the financial investment both in time and money in getting counseling…American Christian Counseling Online Conference… so i wished to experiment with better help so that i can suggest and sort of see how the process went i will state as a disclaimer i am not an expert therapist psychologist i’m seminary qualified um which typically simply implies very light therapy usually the way a pastor is trained without like a therapy focus is we’re sort of like the emergency medical technicians the emergency situation people that appear with the ambulance and we diagnose and after that we suggest people and we are constantly going hey here’s a spiritual area here’s are you maybe you need to go procedure with somebody that’s a little bit more of an expert because location so i’m not an expert this is simply my individual opinion is it practical my experience therefore there’s 5 areas i’m going to take a look at i’m going to take a look at the pricing which is a big factor the algorithm of linking you to a real therapist 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 because you don’t want to suggest someone to something and then you understand possibly they they verify something or they state something that your church does not believe in which could be the spectrum of course therefore to begin with on cost 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 imply it just indicates a couple messages with your counselor however i was impressed that the rate was okay you know i have actually done counseling in the past and it can be extremely expensive specifically if you’re getting somebody who is proficient at what they have actually done i’ve both done it when i remained in seminary i needed to go through some counseling a part of my program and it was simply sufficiently priced done some other therapy and marital relationship counseling and i what stands apart to me on this was the marital relationship counseling we went to a pretty trusted organization a place that was popular released the the couple with the released uh authors and it was 80 dollars with a pastoral discount so that just type of leads you to believe what you understand the full price is pretty pricey therefore uh 320 dollars is okay particularly and we’ll speak about this on the tech side the support was very good you understand in the past when i’ve done therapy in both group or you know separately you’re generally not engaging with your instructor continuously it’s generally simply around your sessions but to build a practice start digitally there’s something about more access to your counselor that i really liked and my therapist was respectable at checking in on me and simply 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 too much they asked your monetary circumstance so you can receive less i didn’t go through that procedure likewise contact your insurance company if you have it to learn if you qualify however the rates i felt specifically for the um the competence of my therapist i was very amazed what i got for the 320 and so um and after that they give you different options when you cancel where you can sort of try it for an extra set of time if you wish to if you want to advance they do charge you month-to-month therefore you have to spend for a month of beforehand and so which makes sense but i i believe it i was really amazed by the cost it’s still a great deal of cash i understand for a great deal of individuals um you know someone like me i don’t use therapy weekly or perhaps every year but i do i have actually discovered i take pleasure in the point of view
um every five years or two 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 learning more about myself however i’ve constantly enjoyed it so pricing respectable second the algorithm of actually advising they go through a whole procedure where they ask you a series of concerns prior to you ever visited you know mail age what you’re searching for to leave therapy they ask them like health and have you been depressed and things like that how are your sleeping practices some basic questions that are all pretty basic um i and i thought the questions were solid 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 pretty good about asking some faith associated questions that i was in fact really satisfied with i wasn’t expecting a lot on the faith location but i was impressed by how they engaged that part of who i am as a person since that is important to me and crucial to a lot of individuals um they practically took that it took anywhere however they say 24 to 2 days to kind of designate you to a therapist and uh i got assigned quite quick i think it was within 24 hours got email alerted it said here’s the individual i saw a photo a bio i might see their competence i could see other reviews about them and after that it was kind of like shot attempt them out and i i and i could select to have someone else if i wanted to and even when you quit they’re very good at like asking a great deal of questions around you know what you think of your accounts or how did that session did they show up i mean they’re they’re truly attempting to make sure everyone is solid and i might alter my counselor at any time there was no issue with changing um my counselor was excellent about that too like you understand was asking a great deal of questions which is a strange balance because you desire a counselor that’s difficult you however likewise um you know somebody that you like that you can rely on so it’s a tough relationship i have actually been pretty um benefit i’ve taken advantage of a lot of good therapy so i believe i have not truly been paired with someone that i didn’t agree 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 notices on text and e-mail etc however basically you fulfill and communicate through their web website so betterhelp.com you have an account and basically it starts a private chat with the person you’re counseling when you do change therapist that information goes away a minimum of gain access to from your end and but for example you schedule whatever within the app you um you satisfy the video innovation it’s kind of like a google hangout that’s built into the the actual website and the video was excellent um my my my counselor had the video on it worked very efficiently um the American Christian Counseling Online Conference

everything and you know easily add it to my calendar however in general the innovation was extremely outstanding you understand my counselor sent me some things and pdfs to procedure before our very first conference i filled it out turn it in i indicate it wasn’t the most state-of-the-art experience but it worked extremely well and so i was extremely satisfied with the overall technology the next area is the actual vice my counselor was extremely was very knowledgeable and had a great deal of experience and they were excellent and i enjoyed it they it was a great balance American Christian Counseling Online Conference
