Thank god for talkspace therapy. Sending my therapist messages at 2 in the morning feels less weird when that's how most of your communication occurs.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Are Talkspace therapists licensed?

Absolutely. Our national network features thousands of licensed therapists across all 50 U.S. states and Canada. On average, Talkspace therapists have 9 years of experience as professional mental health care providers, and have been carefully vetted and trained to use our platform.

Do I need permission from my parents/guardian?

The vast majority of U.S. states require parent/guardian consent for a teen under 18 to start therapy. Your parent will need to affirm their consent both via video message (with you present), and via text message, all on the Talkspace app. Our Consultation Therapists and Customer Support team can provide more detail about the step-by-step requirements for this process.

Can my parents/guardian access my therapy “room”?

Only if you show it to them directly, as all of our therapists adhere to strict ethical codes regarding client confidentiality. However, if you want your parent/guardian to be able to ask your therapist directly about your progress, you will need to say so, and consent to them sharing this information.

How do I reach my therapist on Talkspace?

Send your therapist unlimited text, video, picture and audio messages via web browser or the Talkspace mobile app — from anywhere, at any time. Yup: no need to worry about scheduling appointments, commuting to an office, or taking time away from work or school.

How much does it cost to use Talkspace?

There are several payment options to choose from, depending on the plan you choose. Across the board, Talkspace is about 80% more affordable than most face-to-face therapy sessions.

Is Talkspace as effective as traditional therapy?

Yes! In a recent study of Talkspace users, 93% of participants reported improvement on their toughest problems in as little as 2 months. In fact, in the same study, 90% of respondents said they preferred Talkspace to traditional therapy.
