delighted in the investment both in time and cash in getting counseling…Brigitte Oetter Talkspace… so i wanted to experiment with better help so that i can advise and sort of see how the procedure went i will state as a disclaimer i am not an expert counselor psychologist i’m seminary trained um which normally simply indicates really light counseling normally the way a pastor is trained without like a therapy focus is we’re type of like the emts the emergency people that show up with the ambulance and we detect and then we recommend individuals and we are continuously going hey here’s a spiritual area here’s are you possibly you need to go process with somebody that’s a bit more of an expert in that location so i’m not a specialist this is just my individual viewpoint is it practical my experience therefore there’s five locations i’m going to look at i’m going to take a look at the rates which is a big element the algorithm of linking you to a real therapist the innovation how did that go the actual guidance of
Is BetterHelp an online therapy company?
my session over a month and then the faith element which is undoubtedly actually crucial to me because you do not wish to suggest somebody to something and then you understand perhaps they they verify something or they say something that your church does not believe in which could be the spectrum obviously and so first of all on price it was 320 for a month 80 bucks a week that include a weekly video session and endless messaging which you know what does that mean it simply indicates a couple messages with your counselor but i was impressed that the rate 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 needed to go through some counseling a part of my program and it was simply effectively priced done some other counseling and marital relationship therapy and i what stands out to me on this was the marital relationship therapy we went to a pretty trustworthy institution a location that was well known published the the couple with the released uh authors and it was 80 dollars with a pastoral discount so that just kind of leads you to believe what you know the full price is pretty costly therefore uh 320 dollars is okay especially and we’ll talk 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 individually you’re usually not interacting with your trainer continually it’s generally simply around your sessions however to build a practice start digitally there’s something about more access to your therapist that i truly liked and my therapist was respectable at checking in on me and just asking things throughout the week even when we were not fulfilling so there was a process for you to get a discount rate 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 process likewise talk to your insurance coverage service provider if you have it to discover if you certify but the pricing i felt specifically for the um the competence of my therapist i was extremely satisfied what i got for the 320 therefore um and after that they offer you various alternatives when you cancel where you can type of try it for an additional set of time if you want to if you wish to continue they do charge you regular monthly and so you have to pay for a month of in advance therefore which makes sense but i i believe it i was really impressed by the rate it’s still a lot of cash i understand for a lot of people um you know somebody like me i do not utilize counseling each week or perhaps every year however i do i have actually found i delight in the point of view
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 take place in my childhood i there’s constantly something i’m discovering myself but i have actually always enjoyed it so pricing pretty good second the algorithm of actually suggesting they go through a whole procedure where they ask you a series of concerns prior to you ever visited you understand mail age what you’re searching for to get out of counseling they ask like health and have you been depressed and things like that how are your sleeping habits some general questions that are all quite basic um i and i thought the concerns were solid um ultimately they do get in we’ll talk about 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 in fact very pleased 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 since that is essential to me and essential to a great deal of people um they practically took that it took anywhere but they say 24 to two days to kind of assign you to a counselor and uh i got assigned pretty fast i believe it was within 24 hr got email notified it stated here’s the individual i saw an image a bio i might see their competence i could see other reviews about them and then it was type of like shot try them out and i i and i might pick to have somebody else if i wished to and even when you quit they’re great at like asking a great deal of questions around you know what you think about your accounts or how did that session did they show up i imply they’re they’re actually trying to ensure everyone is strong and i might alter my therapist at any time there was no problem with altering um my counselor was terrific about that too like you understand was asking a great deal of concerns which is an odd balance because you want a therapist that’s difficult you however likewise um you know someone that you like that you can trust so it’s a tough relationship i have actually been quite um benefit i have actually taken advantage of a great deal of excellent therapy so i think i haven’t really been paired with someone that i didn’t agree however i was impressed by the algorithm the questions and how the entire experience worked next the technology whatever takes place through the site so it’s um it’s that you get alerts on text and email and so forth but basically you fulfill and interact through their web website so betterhelp.com you have an account and practically it begins a personal chat with the person you’re counseling when you do alter counselor that data disappears at least gain access to from your end and but for example you schedule whatever within the app you um you meet the video technology it’s type of like a google hangout that’s built into the the real site and the video was great um my my my therapist had the video on it worked extremely smoothly um the Brigitte Oetter Talkspace

just thing that was type of unusual was generally you can alter your audio and video inputs um by choosing the different locations i could not figure out how to do that as somebody who has some nicer equipment i usually like to check it’s using the ideal mic input not a big deal but that’s more of a technical nerd kind of element however i was impressed by how everything worked you know web-based stuff and not software-based things or like you know uh software sitting on your computer system in some cases isn’t as excellent you know zoom is downloaded on your computer versus google hangouts is in in the cloud in some cases that could be hit or miss but i was very satisfied by the entire quality and my my uh my therapist was older and he appeared to know how to run it all and it was really effective i was impressed by the engagement from him through messaging uh the thing is i would get e-mails that he had actually published a message but because of security factors that makes sense none of the message remained in my e-mail i needed to constantly click onto the website to see things i sort of wish i could open that up but i comprehend that maybe you do not desire your personal details that is taking place in between counselor in your inbox i likewise got text suggestions you understand i needed to decide in for that however like 20 minutes prior to my session i had the ability to schedule
everything and you know quickly add it to my calendar but overall the innovation was really remarkable you understand my counselor sent me some pdfs and things to procedure prior to our first meeting i filled it out turn it in i mean it wasn’t the most modern experience however it worked extremely well therefore i was extremely satisfied with the overall technology the next section is the real vice my therapist was extremely was very competent and had a lot of experience and they were great and i enjoyed it they it was an excellent balance Brigitte Oetter Talkspace
