WHICH IS BETTER: BETTERHELP OR TALKSPACE?
Thankfully, in our new era of mental health awareness more people are in Therapy. Unfortunately, more corporations, startups, and Silicon Valley entrepreneurs are interested in turning Therapy into profit. Think of BetterHelp and TalkSpace as the Uber and Lyft of mental health.
Yes, these companies can be convenient and economical for customers, but are you getting ethical treatment? These apps incentivize Therapists to unethically extend the Therapeutic Relationship with clients to gain financial bonus rewards.
A Therapist shouldn’t be treated like a gig economy worker. Work with a Licensed and Trained Couples Therapist who doesn’t unethically utilize a phone app to gain financial bonuses off clients.
