How do I book a free session?

We know you don't always find the right therapist the first time around. To save you from spending money on the wrong therapist, we've made it easy for you to book free 15 minute sessions with as many of our therapists as you like, until you find the perfect match.

To get started you can choose a therapist or get matched with one.

Your session will be a video call and you'll be able to discuss your needs with your therapist and ask any questions you may have.

How does online therapy work?

Online therapy offers the depth and quality of face-to-face sessions, but from the comfort of your own home. This means you can access seamless therapy with Talked from anywhere in Australia.

It's therapy on your schedule. You decide when and how to connect with your therapist, whether that's via video, phone or messaging. Your therapist will guide you through your therapy journey and even book your sessions for you.

Our real-time messaging services allows you to chat with your therapist in-between your sessions and share worksheets, exercises and other resources.

And of course, we've made claiming Medicare rebates easy too. We will process all your claims for you, so you can focus on your therapy sessions.

Get started today, by choosing your therapist or get matched with one.

I'm already feeling lighter after my first session! Tamara is great and really makes me feel seen, heard and comfortable. I wish I had started years ago.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long is a free session and what can I expect?

Free sessions are 15 minutes and are a great way to get to know your therapist before you book a full session.

The session will be over a video call and your therapist will explain how they will work with you over the course of your therapy sessions, and give you the ability to ask any questions you may have.

Can my therapist see that I have booked with other therapists?

No, your therapist can't see any of your other bookings, so you can feel comfortable in booking free sessions with multiple therapists to find the fit for you.

Can I book free sessions with multiple therapists?

Absolutely! This is a great way to find that perfect fit for you, without needing to spend any money.

You may book trial sessions with as many therapists as you like.

Is online therapy effective?

Yes, online therapy has been shown to be extremely effective. Multiple studies have found that it can deliver therapeutic outcomes comparable to traditional face-to-face therapy, especially for conditions like depression, anxiety, and stress.

Its convenience and accessibility make it an attractive option and the costs can often be claimed back through Medicare or private health insurance.

Is online therapy right for me?

Determining if online therapy is right for you depends on various factors. Online therapy offers convenience, flexibility, and can be especially beneficial for those with busy schedules, in remote areas, or with mobility issues.

Recent studies have proven that online therapy is just as effective as face-to-face sessions, so if you are considering therapy or returning to it, online therapy can be a great option.

Is online therapy secure and private?

Talked is committed to protecting your privacy and security. Our platform is built to high standards of security and encryption, and we are compliant with the Australian Privacy Principles.

Your video sessions are never recorded and only between you and your therapist, so you can feel comfortable to open up.

The best step I could of taken

by Danielle

I felt heard and validated on my first session. Have booked again and looking forward to it


by Clark

Easy to use. Clear and upfront. No surprises. Connected to a fabulous therapist.

Amazing platform for therapists!

by Michael

My experience since joining Talked has been wonderful. All of the traditional client onboarding processes are taken care of. Individual client profiles has made communicating and rebooking hassle free, plus automatic reminders are sent out before sessions (yay!)

This has helped to make things easier.

by Nicky

Throughout the hardships of life and to share it with someone who is listening and being there is helpful.

Fantastic service!

This service is brilliant for accessing therapy at a time that suits you, through a variety of options (video or voice call or messaging). It’s easy to book & the therapist I now use is fantastic.

In control

Love that I can see the reviews and profile of the therapist. I can filter to match my budget but still get a quality service. My first session went really well and I've booked again.

Excellent service

by Peter

Booking and payments process was super quick and smooth and I liked that the therapy video session was directly on the platform and they don't force you to download any additional apps. I'll definitely be coming back and would also recommend Talked to everyone else! Great service!

A great platform for counsellors and clients

by Karen

As a Registered Counsellor, I have been finding the Talked platform easy to use. The admin staff are very helpful and quick to respond to questions or problems. It is set up well, with everything in one place: therapist selection, appointment booking, messaging, payments etc. I highly recommend Talked for both counsellors and clients.

Fantastic staff, easy to use platform and easy to book

by LMA

It's cheaper and better experience then face to face therapy. The staff are well trained, kind and offer a range of different support techniques. Really awesome platform.
