Talkspace Online Therapy
By Groop Internet Platform inc.
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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 $32 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.

It’s really not about the app
If you are matched with the right person, and you have all the say in that, and the person that you are working with is having an incredibly positive impact on your life how can you possibly criticize the app. It does what it claims to do and by my definition an app that provides the service it claims to provide is perfect. If it goes above and beyond even better. I hear from the person I’m working as often as I am supposed to. I would recommend this app to anyone. I imagine it would be different if I weren’t so happy with the individual I was working with.
Update: the person I’m working with has made such a difference in my life that it’s hard for me to give this app anything under than a perfect rating. If my therapist is any indicator of the talent at talk space than this is truly a special app. It does glitch at times, and there have been a few occasions where for 2 or 3 days we were not getting each other’s messages. It eventually worked out but that could be a real problem in certain situations. There needs to be a contingency plan so when issues are being worked through glitches don’t damage progress. If that can be worked out that this app would truly be perfect. Work something out so that if communications on the app are down we can still get the help we pay for and depend on.
“But I’m too Busy”😩
Fitting in therapy appointments the traditional way just never continuously happened for me because I’m a chronic overachiever who has always been working at least two jobs my entire life, but I LOVE this platform for therapy... my therapist has been amazing and helped me realize so many things that were causing me to feel always behind and like I was always “not doing enough”... I don’t think there’s many people that can’t benefit from therapy, but in today’s crazy world can’t help but feel guilty if we make time for it. This app is like a drop box where you let someone know your thoughts when you’re thinking them... like a friend.. but one that is actually trained on giving valid & supportive of advice lol.
I was a little skeptical about seeing a therapist virtually. But the video chat feature is phenomenal because you still get a chance to see the person and know that they are real. It's like having a friend who is there to listen. The most important part is that you can journal throughout the week until you're next video chat and it can help you vent when needed. I will recommend it for the busy professional or for people who are not comfortable with walking into my office.
Update: I’M CURE!!! My therapist was so good, she talked herself out of a job. I can manage on my own now. Thanks Talkspace for disrupting the Therapy space. I would have never talked in person because of my “status” in society.
