taken pleasure in the investment both in time and money in getting therapy…Talkspace Tiffany Dubya… so i wished to check out better help so that i can recommend and type of see how the process went i will state as a disclaimer i am not a professional therapist psychologist i’m seminary qualified um which generally simply means extremely light therapy usually the method a pastor is trained without like a counseling focus is we’re type 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 perhaps you require to go process with someone that’s a little bit more of a specialist because location so i’m not an expert this is just my personal opinion is it helpful my experience and so there’s five locations i’m going to look at i’m going to take a look at the pricing which is a big element the algorithm of linking you to a real therapist the innovation how did that go the real recommendations of
Is BetterHelp an online therapy company?
my session over a month and after that the faith element which is clearly truly important to me since you don’t wish to recommend somebody to something and after that you know maybe they they verify something or they say 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 indicate it just suggests a couple messages with your therapist however i was impressed that the cost was okay you understand i’ve done counseling in the past and it can be very costly particularly if you’re getting someone who is good at what they have actually done i have actually both done it when i was in seminary i needed to go through some counseling a part of my program and it was just sufficiently priced done some other therapy and marital relationship counseling and i what stands apart to me on this was the marriage therapy we went to a quite 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 just type of leads you to believe what you understand the full price is pretty pricey therefore uh 320 bucks is not bad specifically and we’ll discuss 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 generally not interacting with your instructor continually it’s generally just around your sessions but to develop a routine 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 process for you to get a discount if that was not um if it was excessive they asked your monetary scenario so you can qualify for less i didn’t go through that process also check with your insurance provider if you have it to find out if you certify however the prices i felt particularly for the um the expertise of my therapist i was really amazed what i got for the 320 and so um and after that they provide you various alternatives when you cancel where you can sort of try it for an additional set of time if you want to if you want to continue they do charge you month-to-month and so you need to pay for a month of ahead of time and so which makes sense but i i believe it i was very impressed by the cost it’s still a lot of money i know for a lot of people um you know someone like me i don’t utilize counseling weekly or even every year but i do i have discovered i enjoy the viewpoint
um every 5 years approximately or if something’s going on that i can’t process especially because of some childhood uh such things that occur in my youth i there’s always something i’m discovering myself but i have actually always enjoyed it so pricing respectable number two the algorithm of really advising they go through an entire procedure where they ask you a series of questions before you ever logged in you know mail age what you’re trying to find to get out of therapy they ask like health and have you been depressed and things like that how are your sleeping practices some general questions that are all pretty basic um i and i thought the questions were solid um ultimately they do get in we’ll speak about 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 related concerns that i was really extremely 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 since that is very important to me and important to a lot of people um they basically took that it took anywhere but they say 24 to two days to type of designate you to a therapist and uh i got appointed quite fast i believe it was within 24 hr got email informed it said here’s the individual i saw an image a bio i might see their expertise i might see other reviews about them and then it was kind of like shot attempt them out and i i and i might pick to have somebody else if i wished to and even when you quit they’re very good at like asking a great deal of concerns around you understand what you think about your accounts or how did that session did they appear i suggest they’re they’re truly trying to make sure everybody is solid and i might alter my counselor at any time there was no problem with changing um my counselor was excellent about that too like you know was asking a lot of questions which is a strange balance since you desire a counselor that’s challenging you however also um you know somebody that you like that you can trust so it’s a difficult relationship i’ve been pretty um benefit i have actually gained from a great deal of excellent therapy so i think i haven’t actually 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 innovation everything takes place through the website so it’s um it’s that you get notices on text and e-mail etc but essentially you connect and fulfill through their web portal so betterhelp.com you have an account and basically it begins a personal chat with the person you’re counseling when you do alter counselor that information goes away a minimum of access from your end and but for example you set up everything within the app you um you fulfill the video innovation it’s kind of like a google hangout that’s constructed into the the actual site and the video was fantastic um my my my therapist had the video on it worked very efficiently um the Talkspace Tiffany Dubya
What does our BetterHelp Review cover?
just thing that was sort of odd was generally you can alter your audio and video inputs um by selecting the various areas i couldn’t determine how to do that as somebody who has some nicer equipment i normally like to check it’s utilizing the right mic input not a big deal however that’s more of a technical geek type of component however i was impressed by how everything worked you understand web-based things and not software-based stuff or like you know uh software resting on your computer in some cases isn’t as good you understand zoom is downloaded on your computer versus google hangouts remains in in the cloud sometimes that could be hit or miss but i was very pleased by the entire quality and my my uh my counselor was older and he seemed to know 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 emails that he had posted a message however because of security factors which makes sense none of the message remained in my email i had to always click onto the site to see things i type of wish i could open that up but i comprehend that possibly you don’t want your private information that is happening in between therapist in your inbox i also got text reminders you understand i needed to opt in for that but like 20 minutes prior to my session i was able to schedule
whatever and you understand quickly add it to my calendar but overall the technology was really outstanding you know my counselor sent me some pdfs and things to process prior to our very first conference i filled it out turn it in i indicate it wasn’t the most modern experience however it worked extremely well therefore i was extremely impressed with the total technology the next section is the actual vice my therapist was very was extremely knowledgeable and had a lot of experience and they were great and i enjoyed it they it was a good balance Talkspace Tiffany Dubya
