I think the possibility to get help online is good and up-to-date. This gives me a lot of flexibility with the appointments, which I find positive.

Instahelp client, 11/06/2018

I think it’s good that you can keep it so anonymous. To make an appointment with a psychologist is really a big step that not everyone dares to take.

Instahelp client, 23/07/2018

It is nice to have the opportunity to write messages at any time and to know that you will get an answer soon. That was a very good feeling!
