The digital world has transformed lives in immeasurable ways. It gives both positive and negative implications. For instance, research shows that a percentage of teenage internet users are prone to depression. Many solutions are offered to counter the damage caused since many services are provided online, and healthcare is one of them. Talkspace is a mobile application that connects individuals to therapists online.
Talkspace is time-saving for anyone who has little time to see a therapist. Unlike official visits to the therapist office, online therapists offer instant help without the need to book appointments. Services are provided through voice calls, text messages, and video calling. The application has more than 500,000 users and 1,000 professional therapists.
E-therapy is more affordable than real doctor’s appointment. An individual can choose what is convenient and sensible for them from the available service plans. One of the psychotherapists available through Talkspace is Scott Christnelly. He quit his job at a community organization to work with individuals seeking help online. According to him, therapists should learn to express understanding through words as well as read the clients situation which would only be simplified in a face-to-face interaction. That is the only difference between online and physical therapy.
Talkspace gives patients instant interactions almost always. When the need arises, a patient can choose to leave the sessions or interactions much more comfortable than it would be with a face-to-face therapist. With the app, a user fills out a form online just like in a therapist’s office. Its efficiency is that it is the therapist who reaches out to the patient.
Therapists at Talkspace are qualified and experienced with their work. Patients are introduced to the therapist that suits their need best, based on the information they provide about themselves. People who have used the app say they are happier and better in life.
