When it comes to dealing with my depression or anxiety, Youper has been so effective. It literally brought me from 0 to 100 and allowed me to enjoy my life again.
I love my weekly video sessions, but being able to chat anytime and get instant help is what sets Youper apart from other therapy services I’ve tried in the past. It’s been life-changing.
I started with Youper during the quarantine: it’s so convenient to be able to do therapy without leaving my home, and I love not having to spend a bunch of money on getting better.
Youper helped me feel better and actually measure the results using depression symptoms monitoring, something that I couldn’t have done when I was in traditional therapy.
My provider really cares and listens to me. It’s been amazing to have someone in my corner helping me apply cognitive behavioral skills to take control of my emotions and improve my life.

Frequently Asked Questions
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been proven time and again as the most effective therapy for anxiety and depression, but it hasn’t been available to many people.

CBT is the most effective therapy for anxiety and depression. It helps you understand patterns in your emotions, thoughts, and behaviors that may be contributing to your anxiety and depression. Once you find those patterns, CBT helps change your thinking, take control of your emotions, and change your behavior — to feel better and reclaim your life.
People often see improvements as fast as two weeks after beginning our program. Youper extends the power of CBT to your daily life, so the more you engage with the process and practice the skills, the faster you’ll see improvements.
Most importantly, each person has their own timing and we respect that. You’ll set goals with your provider, check in regularly, and monitor your symptoms to see how you’re progressing
