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.

Customer service is great, the therapists are not
I’ve used Talkspace twice in my life when I was facing challenging situations. The app itself is great, their customer support is great.
Both times I was using TalkSpace as a way to vent while I took on stressful internships. My first therapist told me my problems weren’t real and that I’d realise that if I did yoga every day. 🙄 The second therapist I had recently was someone that didn’t understand me well at all. I wanted to talk about cognitive distortions and she kept misreading it and talking to me about “cognitive dissonance”. Two different topics.
I’m sure the service is fantastic if you’re lined up with someone you click with, I just haven’t experienced that. And after two therapists that didn’t help at all, I’m just not sure I’d give it another shot with TalkSpace.
Helped me through a tough spot
I was skeptical about online therapy, but didn't really know where else to turn when I was feeling super depressed after losing my job. My therapist was really kind and had so many good ideas for dealing with all kinds of challenges. I've been feeling better for a while now, but I still love checking in whenever I'm stressed or unsure of what I should be doing. I love how easy it is!
The first therapist I got matched with was just ok, so tried a second one and she turned out to be the best I ever worked with. Very grateful to have found her, and this kind of therapy is like perfect for my insane schedule
