Therapy can help us work through our most uncomfortable feelings. Depending on health insurance coverage, single sessions can run up to $250. Like so many things nowadays, there is an app for that. Many of us spend a great amount of time glued to our phones or sending text messages, but now with Talkspace a trusted therapist is only a message away at a small fraction of the cost of roughly $25 per week.
While discussing deep and potentially painful feelings through a text sounds sterile, the interface is suprisingly friendly. When you first sign up for the app, a therapist will contact you through text message. You will have a very casual conversation and the therapist will ask you the same questions that appear on an intake form that you would fill out in an office in person. This therapist will then use this information to match you with the best therapist to match your needs, the one you will communicate with for the rest of the time that you use this app. Read more at medicaldailytimes.com to know more about Talkspace.
Talkspace can be used on your mobile phone or computer, and you can sync the conversation between devices so there is not so much as a hiccup. You might not have the reassuring eye contact that you have in an in-person session, but your therapist will be responsive, thoughtful, and fully certified. Best of all, you don’t have to wait for a specific time for a session. The pace of the conversation and text messages comes organically, as your messages are not being answered by a bot but by a real therapist in real time. Many Talkspace users also find it helpful to save the texts from the therapist, especially those that contain particularly insightful advice, and rereading them in moments when they need it most.
