talk Betterhelp 2020

so after you submit what i would call a pretty lengthy questionnaire they ask you to develop an account and then you established your payment…Betterhelp 2020… choices i’ll speak about this a little bit more later however there are scholarships that can lower the price and after that you can likewise alter your preference on how often

you wish to pay so if you pay weekly that’s the most costly however you can also pay beforehand which will make the cost more affordable for you general and then based upon your answers to your questions in the formerly pointed out survey they will match you with a therapist i’m going to use the words therapist and therapist interchangeably throughout this video however that’s not necessarily the case and i think that better help offers both types of psychological health experts so just keep that in mind once they match you with your counselor you have the ability to consult with them and you can set up a time to have your first official meeting so it can either be through a video call through a routine call or through a chat or instant message i always do video calls however it is excellent to understand that all 4 alternatives three actually to me but they say it’s 4 are offered and i understand that’s definitely great for some people who are possibly a bit more worried about therapy or not thinking about doing a video call due to the fact that it makes them uneasy when the day of your session comes you can either log into the web browser or log in to the mobile app you can’t do both at the same time only one at a time and after that you wait on your therapist to sign up with and they will connect you to the session when they do a little bell ring and after that you’re ready to go and you can start having your your meeting during your very first session you’re probably going to have simply a get to know you type of session to find out why are you interested in therapy what things do you wish to resolve what are your preferences as someone going to therapy what are your counselors choices and what’s their style of therapy all of those things will most likely get hashed out in the first meeting and after that with time you’ll get more comfy with one another and you’ll have more of those like much deeper

sessions where you can talk about your problems and whatever it is that you want to resolve and then as time goes on you’ll have sessions however you spent for it or nevertheless you set it up with your counselor so with my counselor in particular i believe this does differ by counselor but we do weekly sessions for one hour and i pay 35 dollars a week broken down but i have actually spent for all of my sessions ahead of time to get that more affordable rate so let’s proceed to the pros and the cons of the platform i believe one of the greatest pros of better aid is that it is an online therapy service which makes it extremely available and really practical for most people as long as you have a web connection you can choose a variety of different ways to meet with your counselor so you can do text message video calls or telephone call they send you tips about your visit so it’s quite challenging to forget when you have a time established they send you both email pointers and text tips and they send them to you a couple of days ahead and also a few hours ahead and a couple of minutes ahead so it’s a bit overkill however uh certainly reliable and another cool feature of them having a digital platform is that they provide digital group sessions and webinar type of sessions that are readily available to anyone who uses betterhelp completely free of charge it’s at no additional expense to what you currently pay for your weekly sessions with your therapist now that being stated in my opinion the platform and the app is not great in fact it kind of draws particularly considering that better assistance in and of itself is a tool the product that they’re selling is this video platform that therapists can use to link you to their network i mean i guess they’re selling the network but i believe really what they’re selling is the tool and it’s not an excellent one it’s quite cumbersome there are no choices for screen sharing Betterhelp 2020

or messaging or talking throughout a session pictures are shared extremely strangely they’re shared as files and you can only send them individually so you can’t like drag and drop into a window or something you need to like browse choose the image then put it in and after that the person can’t see a sneak peek of the picture they need to click into the file to see it it’s simply extremely out-of-date small things like when you press enter in the chat window your messages don’t send it actually develops a line break so
