Theralink (A review)
This article will give a brief idea of Theralink, how does it work, it’s usability and its effectiveness.
Finally, it will highlight the specialties of the counselors the Theralink provides.
Theralink refers to the secure online platform that offers an online communication portal for the clients and the providers as well as the ability to receive payments online, the ability to share documents, schedule online sessions, have video calls, audio calls and text messaging.
Theralink has been found helpful for therapists and counselors to provide an online portal with which they can anytime and anywhere connect with their clients and provide efficient counseling and therapies.
E-therapies have been found very successful both for the therapists as well as for the people, especially for young people and it is becoming popular nowadays.
Following are some of the reasons because of which therapy is getting popular day by day:
- Easy to access:
Well, not everybody can access counseling and therapies as good and certified therapists are not available in every town and city, and it’s definitely not easy to travel far every time for the therapy.
Thera-links provide easy access to the clients to effective counseling and therapies, and it provides easy access to the therapists as well to the clients.
- Judgment free:
Many people don’t take professional help because of the taboo of the mental illnesses as people judge who takes help from the mental care provider and therefore, tries his best to avoid it at any cost.
These portals help those people to have access to the therapies without letting anybody know about it.
E-counseling can be done from the comfort of one’s own home and nobody needs to know about it.
Going to see a professional in person might cost more than e-counseling, however, there are some e-counseling services that costs the same as meeting a therapist in person.
But it surely helps the clients in having sessions at their own space and it helps the counselors and therapists to earn wages the same as they can earn in a full-time job.

They need to start with an easy signing up process for the registration.
After the registration, these Thera-links will provide 10-15 days of the free trial as well and later if the services the therapist likes, he/she can complete it with the payment of the same.

But the number of years don’t tell the efficiency and not all the individual can be benefitted from all the counselors. It depends on person to person.
A person can read the credentials of the individual on the website before paying or taking therapy sessions.
This will allow people to choose their therapists according to their skills and according to the person’s needs.
Confidentiality & Privacy:
Like the therapy sessions taken in person, here also the confidentiality of a client is the first and the foremost thing to be taken care of.
The privacy of the client is important and it in fact maintains the rapport between the client and the therapist and therefore, it’s kept safe.
If any therapists violate it, they have to suffer consequences for the same.
The Theralink counselors are qualified in their areas of expertise and all have the necessary certification and license to practice.
