The LGBTQ community has always felt discrimination against them in different areas, but it seems that they are also not been provided with proper therapy sessions to help them deal with stress. There have been instances where an individual was made to talk about whether or not they are actually gay or lesbian rather than focusing on the main issue. The growing number of problems because of this has forced people in LGBTQ community from seeking online therapy and Talkspace is the one that has help offer this support. According to the company, there has also been a rise in the number of people signing up for their services since the day Donald Trump was elected as the President.
To join Talkspace, one has to sign up through their app by providing some basic information. The best part about the app is that there is no need to fill out a lengthy questionnaire and all one has to do is start speaking to their therapists without any delay. The users can either use their instant messaging services or talk to the therapist through video chat. Their therapy sessions start at just $32 per week, and the best part is that people without insurance can also avail their services. Since its launch, the company has provided its services to more than 50,000 people and use their services on a regular basis. Talkspace creator believes that psychotherapy should be available to everyone irrespective of their background.
LGBTQ people are fed of waiting for traditional therapists to change their mindset against them and are seeking alternative therapies such as through Talkspace that allow them to speak their mind without being judged. They are also enjoying the fact that they do not have to travel to meet the therapists that enable them to save their time and money.
