Discover our text based therapy service

Free confidential therapy, available 7 days a week from 6am - 11pm

At TALKWORKS, we try our best to be as flexible as possible in terms of how we deliver our therapy. We recognise that for some people, it can be difficult to have a verbal conversation with someone when they are struggling. Therefore, we have teamed up with online therapy service ieso to offer text-based therapy to adults across Devon (outside Plymouth). This is available free of charge and is completely confidential, along with the rest of our treatment and support. 

Access text based therapy



Ieso has a network of over 600 fully qualified and accredited therapists and psychological wellbeing practitioners, all trained to help support adults struggling with low mood, stress, anxiety, phobias and sleep difficulties.

Text-based online therapy will give you the chance to chat one-to-one with a therapist, scheduled at a time that suits you. The convenience of this form of therapy is that it can be flexible around work commitments, and can be undertaken from the comfort of your own home.

The service is available 7 days a week, between 6am and 11pm. You can also contact your therapist through messages in between your scheduled sessions if you need any additional support.
