Mmessaging which you understand what does that suggest it simply …Talkspace Spokesperson… indicates a couple messages with your therapist but i was impressed that the cost was not bad you understand i have actually done counseling in the past and it can be very expensive particularly if you’re getting somebody who is proficient at what they’ve done i have actually both done it when i remained in seminary i needed to go through some counseling 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 counseling we went to a quite respectable institution a place that was popular released the the couple with the released uh authors and it was 80 dollars with a pastoral discount so that just type of leads you to believe what you know the full cost is pretty expensive and so uh 320 dollars is okay especially and we’ll talk about this on the tech side the support was great you know in the past when i’ve done counseling in both group or you understand separately you’re usually not engaging with your trainer continuously it’s usually simply around your sessions but to build a practice start digitally there’s something about more access to your counselor that i actually liked and my counselor was respectable at checking 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 rate if that was not um if it was excessive they asked your financial circumstance so you can qualify for less i didn’t go through that process also consult your insurance coverage provider if you have it to discover if you qualify however the prices i felt especially for the um the proficiency of my counselor i was really amazed what i got for the 320 therefore um and after that they offer you different options when you cancel where you can kind of try it for an additional set of time if you want to if you want to advance they do charge you regular monthly therefore you need to pay for a month of beforehand and so which makes sense however i i think it i was very amazed by the rate it’s still a great deal of cash i know for a great deal of people um you understand somebody like me i don’t utilize therapy every week or even every year but i do i have discovered i enjoy the point of view
um every 5 years or two or if something’s going on that i can’t process specifically because of some youth uh such things that happen in my youth i there’s constantly something i’m learning about myself but i have actually constantly enjoyed it so pricing pretty good second the algorithm of in fact suggesting they go through a whole process where they ask you a series of questions prior to you ever logged in you know mail age what you’re searching for to get out of therapy they ask like health and have you been depressed and things like that how are your sleeping habits some basic concerns that are all pretty standard um i and i believed the questions were solid 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 respectable about asking some faith related concerns that i was actually very pleased with i wasn’t anticipating a lot on the faith area however i was impressed by how they engaged that part of who i am as a person because that is important to me and essential to a lot of people um they basically took that it took anywhere but they say 24 to 48 hours to kind of assign you to a therapist and uh i got designated quite quick i think it was within 24 hours got email notified it said here’s the individual i saw an image a bio i might see their proficiency i could see other reviews about them and after that it was type of like try attempt them out and i i and i could select to have somebody else if i wished 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 show up i mean they’re they’re really trying to ensure everybody is solid and i might change my counselor at any time there was no issue with changing um my therapist was fantastic about that too like you understand was asking a lot of questions which is an odd balance because you desire a counselor that’s tough you however also um you understand somebody that you like that you can rely on so it’s a difficult relationship i’ve been pretty um benefit i have actually benefited from a great deal of excellent counseling so i believe i have not truly been paired with someone that i didn’t get along with but i was impressed by the algorithm the questions and how the entire experience worked next the technology everything takes place through the site so it’s um it’s that you get alerts on text and email and so forth but essentially you meet and connect through their web portal so betterhelp.com you have an account and pretty much it starts a private chat with the person you’re counseling when you do change therapist that information disappears a minimum of access from your end and but for example you set up everything within the app you um you satisfy the video technology it’s sort of like a google hangout that’s constructed 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 Talkspace Spokesperson
What does our BetterHelp Review cover?
only thing that was type of unusual was generally you can change your audio and video inputs um by choosing the various areas i could not determine how to do that as somebody who has some nicer gear i usually like to check it’s using the right mic input not a big deal however that’s more of a technical geek type of component but i was impressed by how whatever worked you know web-based stuff and not software-based stuff or like you understand uh software resting on your computer sometimes isn’t as great you know zoom is downloaded on your computer system versus google hangouts remains in in the cloud sometimes that could be hit or miss however i was very pleased by the entire quality and my my uh my counselor was older and he appeared to know how to run everything and it was really reliable i was impressed by the engagement from him by means of messaging uh the important things is i would get e-mails that he had actually posted a message but because of security factors that makes sense none of the message remained in my e-mail i had to always click onto the website to see things i kind of desire i could open that up however i comprehend that maybe you do not want your private information that is occurring in between therapist in your inbox i likewise got text suggestions you understand i needed to opt in for that however like 20 minutes prior to my session i had the ability to schedule
everything and you understand easily add it to my calendar however overall the innovation was very impressive you know my counselor sent me some things and pdfs to process before our first meeting i filled it out turn it in i suggest it wasn’t the most modern experience but it worked effectively and so i was extremely impressed with the overall innovation the next area is the actual vice my counselor was really was really knowledgeable and had a lot of experience and they were great and i enjoyed it they it was a good balance Talkspace Spokesperson
