LONDON, UK / ACCESSWIRE / August 18, 2022 / My Therapy, the London-based company created by three industry experts with more than 50 years of combined experience, is changing the way users and people from all over the world remotely and safely connect with mental health professionals from the comfort of their own homes.
Mental health on a global scale has taken a toll after the Covid-19 pandemic and caused a massive surge in demand for therapy, driven by the rise in many conditions like panic attacks, phobias, anxiety, and stress disorders. To reference how steeply this surge is, in the UK alone, the NHS estimated that pre-pandemic, around 10 million people were seeking therapy. Many therapists have already reported increased workloads and are experiencing longer waitlists for clients.
This configuration and supply-demand mismatch cause thousands of people to fail to receive the much-needed compassionate care and professional support an accredited therapist can provide. At the same time, those who can’t find a professional for themselves avoid stepping into therapy clinics to avoid social stigma, judgment, and a sense of shame derived from others and themselves. It’s a complex situation.
Therapy Tech eradicates the typical barriers of connecting to a vetted professional and enables people to do it in simple, fast, and safe steps from the comfort of their homes without having to set foot in a therapist’s office.
Through the platform, people can evaluate, assess, compare and explore professionals based on their skills, experience, and areas of specialisation and carefully select the best one for their problems. After they choose the professional, all it takes is to place the booking and schedule the first call through the customer’s method of choice.
This disrupting platform is changing and improving not only the lives of people and professionals but elevating the entire industry’s customer standards:
“My Therapy gave me the flexibility to provide therapy online, which fits so well into my life. After decades of practice, I’m already at a stage in my career where I find it more convenient and effective to meet clients any time of the day without having to go to an office and waste my time driving or commuting.” Kirsten Bergman, a CBT therapist.
“I was one of those people who had a hard time adjusting to the changes brought about by the pandemic. Being cooped up at home alone for days and the constraint of not being able to engage with my family and friends increased my anxiety. Before it was too late, I looked up possible therapy options online and found My Therapy. It opened up a way for me to reach out to a certified therapist who helped me get through my anxiety.” stated Jamie Powell, one of My Therapy’s early adopters.
Thanks to the way the platform is structured, therapists can significantly profit from it. They increase their visibility, expand their reach, and improve their work-life balance and time-management constraints while generating an extra income stream.
“We are not saying that our platform is a replacement for in-person therapy. Instead, we want it to be an additional option, especially for people who find it difficult to access therapists conventionally. We believe that getting into our platform can be a great first step for people to receive the initial help they need before moving on to more intensive in-person therapy.” said Jacob, one of the Co-Founders
