Excerpt from How self-employment affected my mental health (+ 6 ways I manage it) on This Renegade Love by Lauren McPhillips, who recently tried BEACON.
"I actually just discovered BEACON, and after trying it out extensively, was super impressed with it as an option for affordable mental health care. BEACON is a web and mobile digital solution that provides effective, affordable and accessible therapy to improve mental and emotional well-being, leveraging the principles of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). CBT helps change negative and anxious thoughts so that a person feels and functions better, improving their quality of life.
"There are so many freelancers and self-employed peeps that struggle with stress, anxiety or depression, and that don’t have benefits to cover therapy sessions or specialist visits (like me!). BEACON is an awesome alternative that can lower the cost of treatment up to 80%, but still give premium services like a customized care path and ongoing therapist treatment on an “anywhere, anytime” model. I used Beacon when I was going through a period of winter sadness and overwhelm, and my eTherapist, Robin, not only talked me through the problems I was dealing with, but created customized modules for me to work through to better understand my individual issues."
