To provide medical care (such as therapy and psychiatry) outside the United States, medical providers, such as Headspace Care, are required to meet country and regional legal, licensure, and medical practice requirements. Some countries require that medical providers also must have a local office in the region. Currently, Headspace Care delivers all services from the United States and does not maintain international medical licenses or offices. For these reasons, we can only deliver coaching services, and not therapy or psychiatry, to its international members in approved countries.
Coaching sessions happen through text-based chat, while therapy sessions happen via live video chats. Coaching focuses on where you are in the present and your goals for the future. Coaching is a collaborative relationship. You and your coach work together to identify small steps you can take to achieve your goals, making adjustments along the way to keep you on track.
Therapy consists of sessions with a licensed clinician to help you address ongoing psychological symptoms, or patterns of thought, behavior or emotion that no longer serve you. Therapy allows you to dive deeper into past or present issues to make positive change in your life.
