Look. We’re not going to try to convince you to see a therapist but, like, for real….see a therapist. TBH the concept always made us a bit nervous, but TalkSpace actually helped take our fear(s) away and made talking to a pro easier than ever before. Hey, if Michael Phelps tells us to do it, well, we do it.
What Is It?
TalkSpace has been a total game changer when it comes to therapy-on-the-go. We first heard about them from that Michael Phelps commercial and, to be honest, it made the idea of talking to a professional seem a bit easier and much less taboo. Clearly we’re not alone because (at last check) over 1 million people have joined the app. It’s pretty easy to sign up and use too. Check out the details.
Simply sign up for an account and download their app. From there you can answer some questions and get some matches from their thousands of verified, licensed, and background-checked therapist. Oh, and there are psychiatrists too, so if you’re looking for meds, they can help you with that. From there you can schedule your appointment and get your therapy going. What we really loved about it is that you can even text your therapist through your app, on your phone, tablet, or laptop and all your chats and conversations all transfer seamlessly to all your devices. It’s all super confidential too.
Like regular therapy, Talkspace therapists are there to listen, help you, guide you, and provide you all the tools you need to start feeling better. And there’s really no judgement there at all. Doing this on your own schedule and from the comfort and privacy of your on home really is a great selling point for us. And, not to mention, with everything that’s going on in the world today (hello Covid-19 and terrible economy) it’s more important to talk to someone than ever before. Just remember, you’re not alone and there are trained professionals to help you.
Outside of your normal therapy, there are additional options you should know about too like:
- Psychiatry & Prescriptions When You Need Them – See It Here
- Student & Teenager Therapy & Guidance – See It Here
- Couples Therapy – See It Here
From our own point of view (and we’re clearly not doctors or medical professionals), talk therapy is noting to be embarrassed about, it’s more important than ever, and really can help get things off your chest in a judgement-free space, all while getting the proper tools to help you feel better and be better.

Are There Promo Codes or Coupons?
Ever since we added them to some of our popular gift guides, we’ve gotten that question a lot. So here’s the official real-deal. Yes, Talkspace does have coupons, promo codes, and ways to save. You have to go directly to their site in order to get these active discount codes. Trust us, it’s worth it.
If you’re looking for the kind of coupons you find on those type of sites that just run laundry-lists of them you’re most likely going to be out of luck. Talk Space doesn’t give out those type of offers. Oh, and we do not have any of those here either. At all. Like, ever.
In the meantime here are the quickest ways to see the latest and greatest promos from TalkSpace in October 2020.
