Countless people have the symptoms of stress such as fatigue, irritability, depression, anxiety, and even high blood pressure. Stress is no joke and can a serious condition if it is ongoing and untreated. Many people simply do not have the time to go see a psychiatrist and find it to be too expensive for the budget, so they do not get the help that they really need.
There are many different ways to deal with stress such as exercise, taking a break and not overcommitting to too many obligations but sometimes help is still needed. When our bodies are stressed, they actually produce chemicals that help us to overcome stressful situations and to feel better. These feel-good hormones cause some people to actually become “addicted” to stress and can indicate an underlying issue that may require therapy to work through.
Talkspace is a convenient and affordable way to get needed therapy, and there is no need for a “traditional” therapy setting. Talkspace makes it possible to connect to a licensed therapist either on the computer or by texting on the phone. It is therapy at your fingertips that you can take on the go. It is also a great alternative if you are not fond of discussing your issues with someone face-to-face.
If for some reason you would like to switch the therapist that you have, it is a pretty easy transition and all of your info will be sent over for you, so you don’t have to spend any more time answering the same questions that you initially did when you signed up. You can also freeze your account for 30 days and for added security you can create a passcode for your account. Talkspace makes it very easy to get some extra help when you really need it.
