Therapy has transformed the lives of many people and is often recommended by doctors to patients who are struggling. There are all types of therapy, from therapy for those who suffer from mental health disorder to those who just need someone to talk to due to the stresses in life, relationship problems or after the loss of a loved one. Unfortunately, going to a traditional therapist is difficult, inconvenient and expensive. In some cases, it’s totally impossible to see a therapist if you don’t have health insurance or have a way to get to their office.
Cue in an app known as Talkspace, as this is a home-based therapy app that brings your therapist into your own home. This is an app that you download to a phone or tablet and use as often or as little as you want. The therapist will check up on you throughout the week, but you can message or video chat with them as often as you need. Plus, Talkspace is a lot cheaper than other options available, since you’ll only spend a few dollars per session instead of the hundreds you’d spend on traditional therapy.
Talkspace has revolutionized the world of therapy and is one of the most well-known apps out there. There have been some copycats coming out that try to mimic what Talkspace has been doing for patients, but they are not nearly as good as the platform that this company has launched. Despite being based out of New York City, Talkspace has therapists employed all over the country, so there is a wide range of qualified professionals working with the thousands of people actually using the app. Once you begin to use Talkspace, you’ll wonder why you ever put up with the price and inconvenience of traditional therapy in the past.
