Talkspace is a unique mobile application based service that connects you with a licensed therapist through their app. Our reviewers loved how convenient and easy to use the app is, and they were very happy with the therapy they received. If you need someone to talk to, Talkspace is here to help, and for a limited time they are offering steep discounts on their therapy services.
There are things that happen in life where the best thing you could do for your mental health is to talk to someone. Friends and family may give you a great sense of comfort, but there are specific issues and topics that you just cannot discuss with loved ones sometimes. There are also mental health issues that loved ones cannot diagnose. Talking to a licensed therapist can help give you constructive and unbiased insight into your problems. If you feel skeptical about online therapy, you should be aware that there have been studies that show online therapy has equal or greater success than the typical in-person treatment.
Talkspace offers access to a qualified therapist through audio, video, and text. Their most well known factor is that you can directly message your therapist 5 days a week. Our reviewers noted this feature alone kept them on the Talkspace subscription because when issues arose, they felt comforted by the fact that they could immediately message their therapist the second a problem occurred. With the ability to stay in contact with your therapist daily, Talkspace offers more chances for you to connect with your licensed therapist than traditional therapy appointments. For this reason, many reviewers prefer Talkspace over in-person and in-office therapy.
