I’m going to give an evaluation of betterhelp.com from the viewpoint as a pastor ….Talkspace Pitch Deck…as someone who handles online ministry and we have people that engage from us from all around the world i often get asked do you advise a therapist or a counselor or a psychologist and it can be hard you know if you’re near a church one of our churches it’s genuine simple due to the fact that our church and many churches have actually like a vetted recommendation 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 difficult i’ve in the past use focus on the family recommendation list i usually agree with what they believe and i trust their process does not suggest i i understand everyone on the list is confirmed however it’s a pretty strong list however if you get globally it ends up being the wild west so i’ve started to take note of online counseling over the last couple years i did a video way back where i did a online physician visit this resembled i do not understand five eight years back therefore i’ve been wanting to try betterhelp.com therefore there were some things i wanted to process with a therapist
and as someone who’s gone through counseling in the past both separately and likewise marital relationship therapy i’ve experienced the advantage i’ve often discovered therapy and conference with a psychologist etc as kind of life hacking since it’s getting somebody outside of your fear your sphere of influence and them speaking into your life and they generally see things that perhaps you have actually heard prior to but maybe you required an outsider to verify so i’ve constantly delighted in the investment both in time and money in getting therapy so i wished to experiment with better help so that i can recommend and type of see how the procedure went i will state as a disclaimer i am not an expert counselor psychologist i’m seminary qualified um which normally simply implies really light counseling usually the method a pastor is trained without like a therapy focus is we’re kind of like the emergency medical technicians the emergency people that appear with the ambulance and we detect and after that we advise people and we are constantly going hey here’s a spiritual location here’s are you perhaps you need to go procedure with somebody that’s a bit more of an expert because location so i’m not an expert this is just my personal opinion is it helpful my experience therefore there’s 5 areas i’m going to take a look at i’m going to look at the pricing which is a huge element 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 then the faith aspect which is obviously actually crucial to me because you do not want to suggest someone to something and after that you know possibly they they verify something or they state something that your church doesn’t believe in which could be the spectrum of course and so first of all on price it was 320 for a month 80 bucks a week that include a weekly video session and limitless messaging which you understand what does that imply it just indicates a couple messages with your therapist however i was impressed that the price was not bad you know i’ve done counseling in the past and it can be really expensive specifically if you’re getting someone who is proficient at what they have actually done i have actually both done it when i was in seminary i had to go through some counseling a part of my program and it was just properly priced done some other therapy and marriage counseling and i what sticks out to me on this was the marital relationship therapy we went to a pretty credible institution a location that was popular released the the couple with the released uh authors and it was 80 dollars with a pastoral discount rate so that just sort of leads you to believe what you understand the complete cost is quite expensive therefore uh 320 dollars is okay especially and we’ll talk about this on the tech side the assistance was great you know in the past when i’ve done therapy in both group or you know individually you’re normally not engaging with your trainer constantly it’s usually just around your sessions but to build a practice start digitally there’s something about more access to your therapist that i really liked and my counselor was pretty good at signing 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 too much they asked your monetary circumstance so you can qualify for less i didn’t go through that process likewise contact your insurance company if you have it to learn if you certify but the pricing i felt particularly for the um the knowledge of my therapist i was really pleased what i got for the 320 and so um and then they provide you various choices when you cancel where you can kind of try it for an extra set of time if you want to if you wish to continue they do charge you regular monthly therefore you need to spend for a month of beforehand and so which makes sense but i i believe it i was really amazed by the price it’s still a lot of money i understand for a great deal of individuals um you understand someone like me i do not utilize therapy weekly and even every year but i do i have actually found i take pleasure in the point of view
um every 5 years or two or if something’s going on that i can’t process particularly because of some childhood uh such things that take place in my childhood i there’s always something i’m finding out about myself but i have actually constantly enjoyed it so pricing pretty good number two the algorithm of actually suggesting they go through an entire procedure where they ask you a series of concerns prior to you ever logged in you understand mail age what you’re searching for to leave counseling they inquire like health and have you been depressed and stuff like that how are your sleeping habits some basic concerns that are all pretty standard um i and i believed the concerns were strong um ultimately they do get in we’ll discuss this in the face section 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 in fact very amazed with i wasn’t expecting a lot on the faith area 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 great deal of people um they pretty much took that it took anywhere but they state 24 to 48 hours to kind of designate you to a counselor and uh i got designated quite quick i think it was within 24 hr got e-mail informed it stated here’s the individual i saw a photo a bio i might see their knowledge i might see other evaluations about them and then it was kind of like shot try 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 lot of concerns around you understand what you think about your accounts or how did that session did they appear i imply they’re they’re truly attempting to make sure everybody is solid and i could change my therapist at any time there was no problem with altering um my therapist was great about that too like you know was asking a great deal of questions which is a strange balance because you want a therapist that’s difficult you but likewise um you know someone that you like that you can rely on so it’s a difficult relationship i have actually been quite um benefit i’ve taken advantage of a lot of excellent counseling so i believe i have not actually 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 technology everything takes place through the website so it’s um it’s that you get alerts on text and email etc but basically you communicate and meet through their web website so betterhelp.com you have an account and basically it starts a personal chat with the person you’re counseling when you do alter therapist that data disappears at least gain access to from your end and but for example you schedule everything within the app you um you meet the video innovation it’s kind of like a google hangout that’s constructed into the the real site and the video was excellent um my my my counselor had the video on it worked extremely efficiently um the Talkspace Pitch Deck

only thing that was kind of odd was usually you can change your audio and video inputs um by choosing the different locations i couldn’t find out how to do that as somebody who has some better equipment i usually like to double check it’s using the best mic input not a big deal but that’s more of a technical nerd type of aspect however i was impressed by how everything worked you know web-based things and not software-based things or like you understand uh software application resting on your computer system sometimes isn’t as great you know zoom is downloaded on your computer versus google hangouts remains in in the cloud often that could be hit or miss but i was very pleased by the whole quality and my my uh my therapist was older and he seemed to know how to run everything and it was extremely efficient i was impressed by the engagement from him by means of messaging uh the thing is i would get e-mails that he had actually published a message but because of security factors which makes sense none of the message was in my e-mail i needed to always click onto the site to see things i kind of dream i might open that up but i comprehend that possibly you don’t want your personal information that is happening in between therapist in your inbox i likewise got text suggestions you know i needed to choose in for that but like 20 minutes prior to my session i had the ability to schedule
everything and you know quickly include it to my calendar but overall the innovation was really excellent you understand my therapist sent me some things and pdfs to procedure prior to our very first meeting i filled it out turn it in i imply it wasn’t the most high-tech experience but it worked effectively therefore i was really impressed with the total technology the next section is the real vice my therapist was extremely was extremely competent and had a lot of experience and they were good and i enjoyed it they it was a great balance Talkspace Pitch Deck
