Description

Start feeling better with Talkspace, a therapy and counseling app that gives you the most convenient, affordable, and discrete way to deal with depression, anxiety, stress, chronic illness, and more.

WHAT IS TALKSPACE?
Talkspace is a platform that connects users with a licensed therapist. Whether you’re experiencing symptoms of stress, feeling depressed or having anxiety attacks, Talkspace is the place for you. It’s also great for couples that need a new spark of motivation, to relieve tension and to increase positive feelings in their relationship. We will connect you with a dedicated, licensed therapist for on-demand, private text, audio, and video chat therapy, anywhere and anytime. All in the palm of your hand, on your phone or web browser!

HOW DOES TALKSPACE WORK?
Talkspace is easy. Anyone can start with a free consultation, so you can chat with a Matching Agent who will answer any questions and ultimately match you with a therapist based on a number of factors. As a Talkspace member, you will have access to your private counselor and secure chat room where you can discuss your life, ask questions and raise troubling issues. Your Talkspace therapist will check in with you based on your agreement with them (usually 1-2 times a day).

TALKSPACE IN THE PRESS
• “The process was identical to what I had experienced in traditional therapy, except that I had access to it anytime I pulled out my iPhone.” – Wall Street Journal
• “Roughly 46 million Americans had a mental illness in 2011 but only 39% sought treatment. Barriers to seeking treatment include the cost, stigma, and time commitment. Talkspace aims to erase those barriers.” – CNN
• “It’s really like texting. It’s easier to write out my feelings, rather than when you’re sitting in a room with someone and it’s hard to explain things.” – Mashable
• “I spent 7 days with a therapist who only knew me via text message and I might never go back to traditional therapy again.” – Business Insider
• “By keeping users anonymous, Talkspace hopes to alleviate the stigma that currently prevents 28% of people who need mental health care, but don’t receive treatment, from finding a therapist.” – The Verge

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
For only $49 per week (billed monthly), Talkspace members gain unlimited access to a licensed therapist, free from appointments and the inconvenience of traveling or taking time off work. Our pricing plans are 80% lower than the average co-pay for traditional, in-office therapy appointments (which are usually only one hour long and twice a month).

WHO ARE THE THERAPISTS?
We have over 1000 licensed therapists in the Talkspace network with thousands of years of combined medical experience! Our counselors’ backgrounds vary, specializing in issues that include: stress and anxiety, depression, LGBTQ issues, domestic violence, PTSD, repression, phobia, work/life issues, chronic illness, and many more. Each Talkspace counselor undergoes an extensive background check to ensure proper qualifications and a proven track record of providing excellent service and guidance.

IS TEXT-THERAPY EFFECTIVE?
Some studies show that online chat therapy is as effective as traditional therapy. Other research demonstrates that online therapy is sometimes more effective than face-to-face therapy, as text-messaging allows for more immediate care and higher engagement.

IS TALKSPACE SAFE?
At Talkspace, your privacy and safety are always our first priority, so you don’t have to worry. We go to great lengths to ensure user data is kept secure and confidential. Our system is encrypted at the highest industry standards (Privacy Policy can be found at https://www.talkspace.com/public/privacy-policy).

Best investment I made in myself in 2017!

tamaloalalia

I made the decision to try out Talk Space last year around this time when I had some personal goals I knew I wanted to achieve but was getting anxious thinking about where to start or what steps to take. My therapist has been so helpful in giving me an outlet to regularly reflect and think deeply about who I am and how I approach my life and relationships. I love the fact that I can have days/weeks where I message her every day or even multiple times a day or other weeks when I can put it aside and focus on other parts of my life and return later. My schedule right now is so erratic there’s no way I could keep up with a regular in person therapy appointment and there is something another typing that allows me to be more open and vulnerable than I would with a person sitting in front of me. Hands down, joking Talk Space was the best investment I made in myself in 2017. It may not be right for everyone but it’s had a positive impact on me!

The best therapy for therapy skeptics

Jujubean889

For the past few years I’ve had a lot of the usual stressors going on in my life and it finally began to feel like I wasn’t keeping up. I have a good amount of friends, including my partner, tell me how beneficial therapy has been for them even on the simplest level of having “someone to talk to about yourself” who is unbiased and unrelated to your day to day life. I finally took the plunge to try Talkspace despite having a very thin budget (read:nearly nonexistent) and I’m so happy I finally got over the skepticism and concern that maybe it wouldn’t help me. I love knowing I can message my therapist at any time and she’s there to hear my worries and dismantle my fears. This platform is a game changer- it’s made therapy affordable (you pay for one month what some therapists charge an hour) and I promise if you’re open to working towards change you will find it, especially because you don’t have to drive to an office to talk to someone, you can do it comfy in your pjs at home!

Life-Saving

When I signed up to Talkspace, I was going through one of the worst times of my life. I was struggling with severe anxiety and depression, which prevented me from "functioning" properly. I wanted somebody to talk to in between visits to my main therapist. I didn't think that talking to a therapist online would solve the problem, but I liked the idea of getting things off my chest whenever I wanted - especially when the anxiety spirals out of control.

To my surprise, my therapist was much more than a "listener". Danielle was a knowledgeable professional that helped me understand triggers, identify harming thought-patterns, and create coping mechanisms. She's also helped me with "normal" things such as dealing with difficult co-workers and prioritizing work tasks. In a short period of time, my relationship with her evolved so much to the point that I'm closer to her than I am to my other therapist - the one I see once a week. Not only that, my interactions with her have had much more impact on my life.
