My BetterHelp Journey Part 1:

If you haven't heard yet, People of Purpose has partnered with BetterHelp to bring affordable counseling into the comfort of your home or wherever in the world you are right now.
As the host of People of Purpose, I, Tanur Badgley, have been given three months to try it out. After a 15 minute personalized survey and a couple days, BetterHelp paired me with a Christian marriage and family therapist who holds a California counseling license for 24 years now.
Every week since mid June I have a video call with my counselor Colleen. It's been awesome to be probed individually to think about my boundaries and my direction as my life is changing so much and I'm committed to excellence in so many areas of my life. (For those that don't know, I'm just a few months away from marriage and moving back to Thailand.)
I have attended counseling sessions from four different states while Colleen is in Kentucky. We have also had two couple's pre-marital counseling sessions while my fiance is in Thailand. We have our three way video call while she's on FaceTime on my phone while Colleen is on video on my desktop. It's amazing how leveraging the power of technology allows for such beautiful human connection.
I know that my relationship with myself and my partner will become so much stronger because of the support of my personal BetterHelp counselor. I really encourage you to try it.
The counseling is much cheaper than traditional counseling and comes with way less anxiety and rigidness than going into a therapist's office. The counseling is typically the price of a deductible, completely flexible where and how you will connect, and you can feel secure knowing somebody is in your court and they don't have the biases that sometimes come with friends and family.
I could see even just 2-3 sessions being extremely beneficial.
Because of our special partnership, BetterHelp is giving People of Purpose listeners a special introductory offer. If you want help sorting through all the complications, hurts, hangups, and heartbreak hat come with being human - or you need that extra push from a professional coach to more fully pursue your life's biggest purpose I really encourage you to give BetterHelp a shot.
