For every consumer with a smartphone and internet access, mobile apps are a part of daily life. From fitness software to productivity calendars, there’s a digital solution for almost everything.
What therapy apps are available as therapy tools that consumers can (and do) use?
The first app to consider and review as a therapy app is ‘ Talkspace ‘.
This therapy app creates a safe space for users to discuss therapy topics while connecting them with an experienced, licensed therapist at affordable rates. Users can message therapists and schedule appointments from their computer or smart phone, opening up therapy options even during work hours or in emergency situations.
Users can select a type of therapy they need help dealing with. The therapy provided by the Talkspace platform then tailors itself to aid in recovery on all levels of being: mind, body and spirit.
The second app to consider is the popular Quenza app. This app allows therapists to digitally support their clients at a low cost. Quenza therapy is more of a coaching service that offers therapy routines and tips for users to deal with certain life issues such as relationships, stress or anxiety.
Through activities and pathways, practitioners are able to digitally support their clients with their therapy homework. This app is beneficial for those who want the support of therapy but cannot get out to therapy appointments or even afford therapy.
This therapy app allows users to have the structure that therapy offers and receive guidance from an experienced therapist without having to take time off work or go see a therapist in person. Additionally, with Quenza, clients do not need to get an extensive questionnaire filled out prior to therapy, which often takes more time than using this therapy app. This saved time can help therapists add clients and increase overall practice revenue.
The third and final app to consider is Therapy Anywhere. Therapy Anywhere combines therapy with technology that make therapy more accessible to the public. Although therapy apps are not quite as effective as therapy in person for some people, therapy apps still have a place within the healthcare system and can be very helpful if chosen wisely.
There are many different types of therapy apps so it is important to consider what kind of support a user needs before buying an app. Therapy apps vary from mood tracking tools like MoodKit to therapy programs like BetterHelp . User reviews on Google Play help guide users towards the right kind of therapy app for their individual needs because each app has varying degrees of effectiveness depending on personal preferences.
