Ratings and Reviews
I suffer with Mental Health issues, and in the UK, we have limited resources when it comes to support from the NHS. So this seemed like a good alternative. I message my therapist and can just write it down when I feel the need. HOWEVER....... the app has been down twice in the last 2 weeks. The first time, it was down for 5 days. The company were apologetic, and apologised, but I really feel that this isn’t good enough, especially with the nature of the service. I now haven’t managed to log on for two days because the app is down yet again. You’re dealing with emotionally vulnerable people, who’ve chosen to pay for this service, and to suddenly withdraw all contact from their counsellor all of a sudden can be extremely fatal, which I feel this company forgets. You can literally only message your counsellor in the app, You cannot message from a computer or iPad. It is smartphone only. I URGE minds for life to ensure their app management is taken care of, because it’s very shoddy. I also feel it would be courteous to email all the users when the app is down, not by just waiting for them to contact you. I do have a wonderful counsellor, but it’s an unreliable app!

Hi Markysparkykypros, we are sorry that you've been affected by the technical issues with the app and we have now rectified these issues offering an alternative option to those who were affected by these. We are sorry for any inconvenience that you may have faced during these few days.
There’s a fundamental issue here...
So I’m pretty much aware that a lot of my current issues that I need someone to talk to about stem from the fact that I’m really struggling to find employment since losing my last job.
This app wants incredibly high payments for the services offered (£250 is their comprehensive service, apparently). So here’s my issue:
I have no money, am hugely in debt and considering an “alternative” solution. I wanted this app to have someone to talk to, someone who might help me out. What am I to do? Oh well, this service and the people extorti-I mean offering said service obviously don’t want to help someone like me.
Oh and before the developers defend themselves by pointing out the three day trial - that’s only going to help if you’re sure enough about what needs to be done to solve your issues in the first place. Three days is no where near long enough to solve long-term deep seated mental issue. Ever.
Perhaps you could add some sort of live chat feature where someone seeking someone to talk to simply presses a button and are connected to a random member of your counselling team that’s available at the time? That way people will always have SOMEONE to talk to.

Hi SelterReviews, we've added a lower priced package and a free 3 day trial. Over the 17 years and 110,000 hours of counselling we've already delivered we've helped many people and had heaps of great feedback on the quality of our counsellors and how they can help people feel better and happier. Our staff are professional qualified counsellors not volunteers which is really important to the people we support and different to free services. You can use the mood tracking and goal setting tools for free and we will be bringing more free tools to the app with later versions.
Helping me track my mood
I’ve had this app for months and it has helped me track my mood day-to-day! It’s been really useful to keep an eye on how I’ve been feeling and work out what caused a dip or rise in my mood! Thanks!

Hi joey-t-1993, we're glad to hear that the app is helping you. Mood-tracking on a daily basis is a great way to spot any triggers. Keep going on your journey, you're doing great.
