Experience story: more peace with online help
Experience story: more peace with online help

Saskia has been searching for more peace of mind. With NiceDay she began to train her brain.  Are you curious how she did this? You can read about her experience in this blog.

Saskia explains: “I started to live a healthier life a year ago. I started to cook with fresh ingredients and began going to the gym. Physically things improved and I noticed a clear difference. But in my head there was still a restlessness and critical voice, which I couldn’t ignore. This experience became part of my daily life. ”

Looking for help

“There was a waiting list to see the psychologist. Via social media I got the tip to take a look at the NiceDay. Online psychological help: I ​​was not familiar with it at all. I also had my doubts. Wasn’t it much nicer to see a psychologist face to face? But because I wanted to be helped quickly, I went to the NiceDay website. It contains clear information about consultations and their method of working.”

“So, I made an account on the app. This can be done completely anonymously. I received a short questionnaire about my complaints and after a practitioner looked at my questionnaire, I was assigned to a psychologist . In addition, I received tips to start using the app in preparation for my conversations with the NiceDay psychologist.”

The app

“In the app you can keep track of how you feel on a daily basis, you can write down problems in a diary and gain insights through articles to help you feel better. My initial doubts about the process decreased, this was for me! I like to deal with problems myself and receive information from professionals. Then I like to put this advice into practice right away. The app can provide insight into your progress allowing you to quickly adjust your behavior and thoughts. There is also the option of having 5 conversations with a psychologist. In addition to the conversations, the psychologist regularly checks the diary. I noticed that as soon as I was doing a little less, I got a message from the psychologist asking how I was and if she could offer more help online. I received interesting articles from the psychologist that really helped me. ”

Specific questions and good advice

“I had 5 calls via video calling. At first I had my doubts about that. It is very different from someone sitting in front of you. Strangely enough, it didn’t really matter at all. The psychologist asked specific questions and gave good advice. I also received exercises, such as a thought record, which was very practical. In the follow-up conversations, my diary and the exercises that I registered  in the app were discussed. I always felt that the psychologist was very motivated and well informed about everything I wrote in the app. ”

I experience more peace

“As well as training my muscles in the gym, I had the opportunity to train my brain through the app. I experience a lot more peace now and of course sometimes I have a bad day. But by the end of the treatment, I had good tips to recognize a relapse and how to manage it. I feel that I have been able to make progress in a short time with a motivated NiceDay team by my side.”
