or a licensed expert nurse who’s had specific training in psychiatric medications so those are the only two kinds of people who can recommend medication the vast majority of psychotherapists do not prescribe medication because they don’t hold those other degrees and where i live very very few psychiatrists likewise do treatment most psychiatrists concentrate on recommending the medication and leave the therapy to the psychotherapists so that is not a legitimate criticism and then the 2nd criticism that they do not deal with court orders i will tell you in my own private practice i truly attempted to prevent handling court orders and i will share with you why most of the time what would take place is i would get a call from someone who would remain in a panic asking to have five sessions in a week because they had to go to court next week and they were trying to fulfill the requirement that they had received most likely 5 or six months ago now i understand that this happens i truly do however that’s not in fact therapy that’s in fact doing something to satisfy a court order and it’s not the type of work i ever did and most likely for most court-ordered therapy there are neighborhood companies that can supply that type of treatment in a more effective manner so i simply wanted to address those two criticisms due to the fact that i don’t feel they stand so before i show you this little technique on the website for better help in terms of being able to discover somebody in your own location that you resonate with i ‘d like to state two things one is that the fit in between you and a therapist is incredibly essential and the style of a therapist makes a huge distinction how comfortable you feel with them how safe you feel with them and you might go to somebody who has an extremely pricey rate at a private practice and still not enjoy with the therapist right i’ve had clients who’ve pertained to me after seeing someone in my location where they were paying a high private practice rate and they enter my workplace and they ‘d say my prior therapist did nothing but speak about herself well that’s not proper so if that occurs to you either with a private practice or a neighborhood firm or on better help change therapists and if a therapist ever does something egregious you can report it to the state licensing board so absolutely the quality of the therapist varies no matter what their training or background and you need to discover someone who’s an excellent fit for you and in fact among the
