talk Betterhelp 2021

so after you submit what i would call a quite lengthy questionnaire they ask you to produce an account and then you established your payment…Betterhelp 2021… choices i’ll discuss this a bit more later but there are scholarships that can lower the price and then you can likewise alter your choice on how frequently

you wish to pay so if you pay weekly that’s the most expensive however you can likewise pay beforehand and that will make the expense cheaper for you overall and then based on your answers to your questions in the previously pointed out survey they will match you with a therapist i’m going to utilize the words therapist and counselor interchangeably throughout this video however that’s not always the case and i believe that better aid offers both kinds of mental health experts so just keep that in mind once they match you with your counselor you have the ability to speak to them and you can establish a time to have your very first main conference so it can either be through a video call through a regular telephone call or through a chat or instant message i always do video calls but it is good to understand that all 4 options 3 really to me however they say it’s 4 are offered and i know that’s definitely helpful for some people who are possibly a little bit more nervous about treatment 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 internet 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 await your therapist to sign up with and they will link you to the session when they do a little bell ring and after that you’re ready to go and you can begin having your your meeting throughout your very first session you’re most likely going to have just a learn more about you kind of session to find out why are you thinking about treatment what things do you wish to address what are your preferences as somebody going to treatment what are your therapists preferences and what’s their design of therapy all of those things will most likely get hashed out in the first conference and then with time you’ll get more comfortable with one another and you’ll have more of those like much deeper

sessions where you can talk about your issues and whatever it is that you wish to address and after that as time goes on you’ll have sessions nevertheless you paid for it or nevertheless you set it up with your counselor so with my counselor in particular i think this does vary by counselor but we do weekly sessions for one hour and i pay 35 dollars a week broken down but i have paid for all of my sessions beforehand to get that more affordable rate so let’s carry on to the pros and the cons of the platform i think one of the most significant pros of better help is that it is an online therapy service and that makes it very convenient and very available for most people as long as you have an internet connection you can choose a range of different ways to meet your counselor so you can do text video calls or telephone call they send you reminders about your appointment so it’s quite hard to forget when you have a time established they send you both email reminders and text pointers and they send them to you a few days ahead and also a couple of hours ahead and a couple of minutes ahead so it’s a bit overkill but uh definitely 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 any person who uses betterhelp entirely free of charge it’s at no extra expense to what you already spend for your weekly sessions with your counselor now that being said in my opinion the app and the platform is not excellent in fact it type of draws specifically considering that much better assistance in and of itself is a tool the item that they’re selling is this video platform that therapists can use to connect you to their network i suggest i guess they’re selling the network but i believe actually what they’re offering is the tool and it’s not an excellent one it’s pretty cumbersome there are no choices for screen sharing Betterhelp 2021

or messaging or talking throughout a session photos are shared extremely strangely they’re shared as files and you can just send them separately so you can’t like drag and drop into a window or something you have to like browse select the photo then put it in and after that the individual can’t see a sneak peek of the picture they need to click into the file to see it it’s just extremely outdated small things like when you press enter in the chat window your messages don’t send it actually creates a line break so
