When we need to talk with a therapist having to wait for an appointment that health insurance may not pay for, traveling to the therapist’s office, and then sitting around waiting to be seen may deter us from seeking the help we need. Through apps like Talkspace immediate access to a therapist is available.
Talkspace offers three subscription plans. One texting session daily for $128 monthly, two sessions a day for $156 a month or for an additional $40 a month two daily texting sessions and a 30-minute video chat with a therapist once a month.
There are potential drawbacks to online therapy services. When in the same room with a patient a therapist can pick-up on facial expressions and body language that can provide greater insight into the patient’s emotional state. It is, however, possible that that the lag time created by texting affords therapist and patient additional time to contemplate what the other is saying.
Some people assume that services like Talkspace are a short-cut to recovery. Just because it takes place in a computer online therapy is not a quick-fix.
When you first become a Talkspace user you will be asked questions to help the service match you with a therapist who is the best fit for your needs. Once a match is made the therapist will contact you with more questions about yourself and a form to complete. The sooner you respond to these texts the sooner your sessions can begin.
The anonymity that Talkspace offers attract people who would not normally seek counseling. The majority of Talkspace clients report finding the service more effective than traditional therapy. The service offers access to 1,500 plus carefully screened therapists. Therapy sessions on Talkspace save the client 80% of the cost of a visit to a therapist’s office.
