At your house you’re not taking yourself out of that situation…Is Betterhelp Good?… and you’re texting with someone who maybe can’t pick up on you not being completely honest about something who maybe can’t pick up like a joke or you know what I mean like it just makes it a little bit more complicated the other issue I have with better help like they claim and they market it as like this is going to be a replacement for therapy but and but then in their Terms of Service it’s not it’s not a replacement it’s they literally say in their terms of service this is not a supplement for therapy I think what better help is really for and what it would be beneficial for is maybe if you’re going through like a loss like you’re grieving um you had somebody die in your family and you really need to talk to somebody or if you’re going through a big transition in life and you maybe just need
someone for a few weeks to talk to you because you’re like saying you’re moving new houses and you’re like really really anxious and really stressed about that or you’re starting a new job and you’re really anxious and stressed about that I think better help would work for those more short-term things but they are marketing it to people specifically especially in youtubers to people who have long-term mental health issues to people with anxiety to people with depression to people with all different types of mental illness they are marketing it to these people as a long-term solution and that’s not what it is it’s not you can’t get that type of benefit from online therapy yet we have not created a system yet that has allowed that to work I won’t talk about real therapy a lot of people crap on real therapy and I get it like we’re going to talk about that in a second so the pros to real therapy for me you get a diagnosis which is a blessing and a curse like we’ll talk about that is like it it is person to person so you have that person-to-person contact you’re getting yourself out of the situation you’re talking to that person you have access to medications if needed most therapists even if they can’t prescribe you medication they know somebody who knows somebody who can prescribe you medication or they just know somebody they have connections in the industry to be able to provide you with those types of services not only medication but just like all types of services if financial like you’re financially not doing well they can provide you the services to go to your city and get the help that you need they can provide you with those things that’s not something if you live in Houston Texas and your therapist lives in Vermont your therapist probably doesn’t know connections around you to be able to accurately help you and give you someone that they can action that can like prescribe you those things give you those things does that make sense like you’re opening yourself up to a lot of other resources not just the therapist therapists also do like behavioral plans very in-depth they go to school for a lot of years and we’re gonna talk about the issues of better help and it’s like with like fake people and the best thing about real therapy is if your real therapist cancels on you you don’t pay for that session we’re gonna get into the whole their topic now the kinds of therapy are basically the pros with better health it’s like the cons are like you have to drive there and it’s expensive like that’s basically the pros a better health you know what I mean I want to talk about the money issues have better help really quick this video is already so much longer than I want it to be and I’m so sorry but like I feel so passionately about this I’ve already briefly touched on this but the biggest issue with better help is that money-wise is that they claim that you’re saving money which in a way you are technically maybe if they provide the services they claim they’re going to which a lot of times they don’t you fill out this little thing and it takes you to you fill out this like form and this is a whole other issue do you fill out the form that like it’s like the little survey to talk about and I applaud them for doing this and also hate them for doing this where if you fill out the form and they determine that you are too mentally ill to continue on with what they can offer you they give you different services which is great because at least they’re being honest about what they can help with they’re not accepting people who maybe suffer from some that would really require a person to person more intensive care they’re you know they’re they’re saying we can’t help you but at the same time if you’re suicidal and you are asking for help because Shane Dawson told you this place was gonna help you and you get a letter saying sorry you’re too mentally ill for us to help you again it’s people’s lives that can really push somebody over the edge what is the solution to that problem I don’t know I don’t know the proper way to handle that because they’re doing a good thing and a bad thing at the same time but that is something to point out the problem of the money is they take you through the survey survey if you pass the survey and they deem you not mentally ill enough to pass the survey you get you go in and they give you the payment options and one of the most popular payment options I believe is like $68 a week for a month and they they it’s weird cuz they do and they don’t make it clear you think that the way that they put it on the site is a little bit misleading and that’s what a lot of the Better Business Bureau cases are about where you can sign up for a free trial of seven days but when you sign up for that free trial they still take out the two hundred and sixty dollars from the four weeks of service that you’re paying for so if you complete the week trial and you didn’t like it they still just charged you for a month of service even if you’re not gonna use it even if you cancels the other issue is some people signed up use it for two weeks decided they didn’t like it but because they thought they were gonna pay in a week by week basis they thought they’d get the money back that t
better help i was positively surprised by this questionnaire i felt like they were Really considering me and what i like and what i don’t like then when they have actually type of made an evaluation they ask you to register and to pay before you actually begin so that was a point where i then be reluctant and understand okay this is going to cost me 200 a month which was a little much however i emailed better aid and told them about My financial scenario that i’m presently making base pay and looking at moms and dads and things like that and they were truly understanding and they provided me i think like a 10 or 15 percent discount that is another plus point without help that they consider the fact that you might not be economically really able to pay for therapy so they do offer marked down rates to people who Need it now based on all the important things that are filled out with the test they pretty quickly i think within like an hour approximately paired me with a therapist but they do state that it uses up to i think 24 hours so the first thing i did was i made certain to arrange a visit with my therapist an appointment i suggest like a session where we both be concentrated on Communicating to each other they have different choices they do a voice call treatment session a video call treatment session or just a chat treatment session so you can truly select what you desire as i stated i personally truly wanted the video conference treatment even if i think it is essential to see the individual see their expressions now in the beginning i had it was really difficult and it also took a Mental toll on me since i was already because negative space there was a problem with the time difference so my therapist is in the united states and with the time different time distinction better help also i think got my time zone incorrect or my therapist time zone wrong i’m not exactly sure but the time zone didn’t compare so there was a great deal of misconception in the beginning Of if i schedule the session at 9 00 pm is this that my 9 pm is this my therapist 9 pm
Pricing for chat, live chat dealing with depression patients with an app diagnosis payment system
and it was a big confusing mess in the beginning i felt actually stressed out a lot more than i should be i believe much better assistance has actually sorted that out now due to the fact that i don’t have that issue anymore so i scheduled my very first apartment and when the time of the appointment Came around i was actually nervous i set myself up i ensured to be in a space where i can be myself i made certain to prepare myself psychologically before going to therapy i did that by sitting with myself half an hour before therapy simply journaling out my thoughts what i wish to state and also once again after therapy journaling Out what we spoke about so when the time came i was ready you’re supposed to be online on the platform and await a therapist that your therapist is going to call you through the platform so i waited and i waited and it was 10 past it was 15 past it was 20 past and my therapist simply didn’t show and that again was such a disappointment and it wasn’t excellent psychologically so i was so Ecstatic for this so nervous for this it was a monetary commitment and after that my therapist didn’t show my therapist wound up showing up half an hour later on however described that it was much better aid’s fault once again with the time difference being identified improperly and incorrect put improperly into her schedule the being late aside the first session Went actually actually great kind of start to be familiar with your therapist to see if it’s even an excellent fit if you feel like you’re not getting in touch with your therapist you’re just not an excellent fit you can you have the alternative to change therapists on much better health they will match you with a various one you can change as many therapists as you want but i seemed like i really gotten in touch with my therapist and i’m still With that exact same therapist and right within the very first session my most significant concern as to my direction in life and what i want and that got the answer truly quickly my therapist essentially made me understand that the answer i’ve been trying to find was always there within me i’ve simply been too afraid to admit that that is my response because of a lot of reasons expectations of others Expectations myself but i keep in mind coming out from that therapy session being truly not mind-blown but how do you call it like horses have those blinders like those have been raised i was like wow okay this makes a lot sense and i spent the following week really reflective and considering what my therapist told me how i would apply that to my life what that Implies for me yeah and after that luckily my therapist has always been on time there is no more issues with the time difference i had a lot of sessions where i truly came out sensation truly good feeling really productive and my therapist also had a few concerns for me that i got to consider throughout the week which i personally truly liked I’m more a reflective individual and she asked me some actually hard questions that are actually essential though even though i’ve just been to treatment like one and a half months i really feel like it’s actually helped me i did have some sessions though where felt.
