Technology has changed over the years in order to better serve the people that use it. Programs have been designed to connect with attendees through technology. People always have their phone on hand. Programs that allow people to use their phone are more likely to be successful. Many companies have utilized the access that they have to technology including Talkspace. Talkspace is a therapy company that offers to counsel to people virtually.
Talkspace was launched in 2012 and has gained unexpected success since 2016. People don’t always have the time to visit a therapist in office. It may not fit into their schedule. Talkspace allows people to access their professional therapist from their phones at least once a day to get the help that they need. Insurance companies have also included Talkspace into their packages to make sure that everyone gets the help that they need. Without insurance, the service cost about $32 a week.
Talkspace has had a lot of success, but after the 2016 presidential election when Donald Trump won presidency Talkspace began to get a lot of people seeking help through their services. It cannot be said that the election results are the total cause of the rise in clients, but it may be a cause. People seeking help through Talkspace receive aid by being matched to a specialist that has the best chances of relating to the client and leaving them better than they were when they came.
To date, Talkspace has helped over half a million people and is continually increasing. They have continuously offered affordable on the going help to people all over the United States. Office therapist may be in trouble because therapy is cheaper and efficient for people that have things to do and can’t afford the expensive office visits.
