Emote, a cutting-edge new online mental health therapy platform, has just launched to an enthusiastic audience, as it is set to help people “ for just the cost of a daily cup of coffee”.
As mental health issues are now so commonplace, millions of people are suffering, and not everyone has access to help. This is due to various reasons such as the cost, their schedule, a physical disability, or their geographic location. They may also feel that if they attend a clinic, they will be stigmatized.
An Easy Way to Get Help
Thanks to technology, sufferers can now link up with Emote’s highly qualified licensed therapists over the internet. This can be via their computer, tablet or smart phone. All they have to do is to download the Emote app to their Android or iOS device, and then experience the positive benefits of turning their life around, by receiving professional help via the platform’s text-based therapy or video therapy (the latter of which is optional).
The Story Behind Emote
Emote’s Co-Founders came up with the idea of this incredible service which is within everyone’s budget, because of the research which shows that talk therapy can provide long-lasting benefits. The latter include: “the ability to reduce debilitating physical symptoms, decreasing dependence on medication, drugs and alcohol, and allowing people to be better prepared to manage future problems”.
Feeling Comfortable & Enjoying the Convenience
When it comes to metal health issues, many people are far more comfortable talking to a therapist over the internet. This is because they can talk from the comfort of their own home in their sitting room or bedroom, and it is less intimidating, as they do not have to attend a facility and speak to reception staff, sit in the waiting room, have their name called out, and so on.
Further, as traveling is so time consuming, and often costly, having psychotherapy over the internet is ideal. An when it comes to appointment times, there is so much more flexibility for the consumer.
What is Behind the Name ‘Emote’?
One of Emote’s Co-Founders, Nathan Perkins, explained that it: “is to give expression to emotion, and our new online therapy platform lets anyone do this, no matter where they are located, with top-qualified licensed therapists. Whether you’re experiencing anxiety, depression, burnout, PTSD, or dealing with addiction, trauma or relationship issues, Emote can offer a variety of therapy options. Numerous scientific studies show that online therapy is equally as effective as in-office therapy. Healing can even be achieved faster with online therapy because it happens around your schedule, thereby reducing the chance of missed appointments”.
As Emote is set up to help individuals with a variety of mental health issues, this is particularly beneficial for those with multiple problems. Once they have received treatment for one disorder, such as anxiety, and are happy with the outcome, then they can then easily receive treatment for another problem, until they reach the perfect goal of optimum mental health.
