American Christian Counseling Online Conference 2022

I’m going to provide an evaluation of betterhelp.com from the point of view as a pastor ….American Christian Counseling Online Conference…as someone who handles online ministry and we have people that engage from us from all around the world i frequently get asked do you suggest a therapist or a therapist or a psychologist and it can be difficult you understand if you’re near a church one of our churches it’s real easy since our church and a lot of churches have like a vetted referral list that we keep on hand to kind of recommend in various focuses it’s generally individuals that we agree with theologically and we trust their practice however you get beyond your physical like geo footprint and it can be hard i’ve in the past usage focus on the household recommendation list i usually agree with what they believe and i trust their procedure does not suggest i i understand everybody on the list is validated but it’s a quite solid list however if you get globally it ends up being the wild west so i have actually started to focus on online therapy over the last couple years i did a video way back where i did a online medical professional go to this resembled i don’t know 5 eight years back therefore i’ve been wanting to try out betterhelp.com and so there were some things i wished to process with a therapist

and as someone who’s gone through counseling in the past both separately and likewise marital relationship counseling i have actually experienced the benefit i have actually often found therapy and meeting with a psychologist and so forth as kind of life hacking since it’s getting someone beyond your worry your sphere of influence and them speaking into your life and they normally see things that perhaps you’ve heard prior to however perhaps you required an outsider to validate so i have actually constantly delighted in the investment both in time and cash in getting therapy so i wished to try out better help so that i can recommend and sort of see how the procedure went i will say as a disclaimer i am not an expert therapist psychologist i’m seminary qualified um which normally just implies extremely light therapy generally the method a pastor is trained without like a therapy focus is we’re kind of like the emergency medical technicians the emergency individuals that appear with the ambulance and we diagnose and then we advise individuals and we are constantly going hey here’s a spiritual area here’s are you possibly you need to go process with someone that’s a bit more of an expert because area so i’m not an expert this is just my individual opinion is it handy my experience and so there’s five locations i’m going to take a look at i’m going to take a look at the pricing which is a big factor the algorithm of connecting you to a real therapist the technology how did that go the real advice of

Is BetterHelp an online therapy company?

my session over a month and after that the faith aspect which is certainly really crucial to me because you do not want to suggest someone to something and after that you understand maybe they they affirm something or they say something that your church does not believe in which could be the spectrum obviously therefore first off on price it was 320 for a month 80 bucks a week that include a weekly video session and unrestricted messaging which you know what does that indicate it simply means a couple messages with your counselor but i was impressed that the cost was okay you understand i’ve done counseling in the past and it can be extremely pricey particularly if you’re getting somebody who is good at what they have actually done i have actually both done it when i was in seminary i had to go through some therapy a part of my program and it was just sufficiently priced done some other counseling and marriage counseling and i what sticks out to me on this was the marriage therapy we went to a quite reputable organization a location that was well known published the the couple with the released uh authors and it was 80 bucks with a pastoral discount so that simply kind of leads you to think what you understand the full price is pretty pricey therefore uh 320 dollars is not bad especially and we’ll talk about this on the tech side the support was great you understand in the past when i’ve done therapy in both group or you know separately you’re usually not communicating with your instructor constantly it’s generally simply around your sessions but to build a habit start digitally there’s something about more access to your therapist that i really liked and my counselor was respectable at signing in on me and just 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 too much they asked your monetary circumstance so you can get approved for less i didn’t go through that procedure likewise talk to your insurance coverage provider if you have it to learn if you qualify however the rates i felt particularly for the um the knowledge of my therapist i was very impressed what i got for the 320 and so um and then they give you different choices when you cancel where you can sort of try it for an extra set of time if you wish to if you wish to advance they do charge you month-to-month therefore you need to pay for a month of beforehand therefore that makes sense but i i think it i was very satisfied by the cost it’s still a great deal of money i understand for a great deal of individuals um you understand somebody like me i do not utilize therapy every week or perhaps every year however i do i have found i enjoy the perspective

um every 5 years or so or if something’s going on that i can’t process specifically because of some youth uh such things that take place in my youth i there’s constantly something i’m learning more about myself but i’ve always enjoyed it so pricing pretty good second the algorithm of in fact advising they go through an entire process where they ask you a series of concerns before you ever visited you understand mail age what you’re trying to find to get out of counseling they ask like health and have you been depressed and stuff like that how are your sleeping habits some basic questions that are all pretty basic um i and i thought the questions were strong 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 pretty good about asking some faith associated concerns that i was actually very 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 an individual since that is very important to me and important to a lot of people um they pretty much took that it took anywhere however they state 24 to 2 days to sort of designate you to a therapist and uh i got assigned quite fast i believe it was within 24 hr got e-mail alerted it said here’s the individual i saw a picture a bio i could see their know-how i might see other evaluations about them and then it was sort of like try attempt them out and i i and i could pick to have someone else if i wanted to and even when you quit they’re excellent at like asking a great deal of concerns around you know what you consider your accounts or how did that session did they appear i mean they’re they’re really attempting to make sure everybody is strong and i might change my counselor at any time there was no problem with altering um my counselor was fantastic about that too like you understand was asking a lot of concerns which is an unusual balance because you want a therapist that’s challenging you however also um you understand someone that you like that you can trust so it’s a tough relationship i’ve been pretty um benefit i have actually gained from a great deal of excellent therapy so i believe i have not really been paired with somebody that i didn’t agree but i was impressed by the algorithm the concerns and how the entire experience worked next the innovation whatever takes place through the website so it’s um it’s that you get notifications on text and email etc however basically you meet and interact through their web website so betterhelp.com you have an account and basically it begins a personal chat with the individual you’re counseling when you do alter counselor that information goes away a minimum of access from your end and but for example you arrange everything within the app you um you satisfy the video innovation it’s sort of like a google hangout that’s developed into the the actual website and the video was fantastic um my my my counselor had the video on it worked really smoothly um the American Christian Counseling Online Conference

just thing that was kind of weird was normally you can change your audio and video inputs um by selecting the different areas i couldn’t find out how to do that as somebody who has some better gear i typically like to double check it’s using the best mic input not a big deal but that’s more of a technical nerd kind of component but i was impressed by how whatever worked you know web-based stuff and not software-based things or like you understand uh software sitting on your computer system sometimes isn’t as good you understand zoom is downloaded on your computer system versus google hangouts is in in the cloud often that could be hit or miss however i was really satisfied by the whole quality and my my uh my counselor was older and he seemed to know how to run everything and it was really efficient i was impressed by the engagement from him through messaging uh the important things is i would get e-mails that he had published a message but because of security reasons that makes sense none of the message remained in my email i needed to always click onto the website to see things i type of desire i could open that up but i understand that maybe you don’t want your private information that is taking place between therapist in your inbox i also got text suggestions you understand i had to decide in for that however like 20 minutes before my session i was able to schedule

whatever and you know quickly add it to my calendar but in general the technology was very impressive you understand my counselor sent me some pdfs and things to procedure before our very first meeting i filled it out turn it in i mean it wasn’t the most state-of-the-art experience but it worked very well therefore i was really impressed with the overall innovation the next section is the actual vice my counselor was really was very competent and had a lot of experience and they were excellent and i enjoyed it they it was a good balance American Christian Counseling Online Conference
