Désiré was experiencing some depressive symptoms for a time. On Google she went looking for online help. She ended up on the website of NiceDay website and dared to go for a online treatment. We asked her how she experienced online treatment.
What did you think when you first heard about online treatment?
I found it interesting and thought: ‘’if you don’t try, you don’t know either”.
What did you think about digital help?
I found that very pleasant. I didn’t want to go to a therapist. I find that too confronting and difficult. The threshold is much lower behind the screen of your phone. And because I am not a real talker, it was very nice to be able to communicate via the chat.
I could grab the app any time of the day whenever I needed it. That was nice! In between sessions, I received messages from my coach about how I was doing. The personal contact with my coach was also very nice. I would definitely recommend NiceDay to others.
How do you feel now, after coaching via NiceDay?
I feel a lot better now. I have more confidence. I have learned that I am not alone and I have learned that the lesser days are allowed to be there. These days are part of life.
I want to thank the makers of the app and all the people behind NiceDay. It really helped me a lot and I had a new friend with my coach. I sometimes miss her spontaneous messages!
