WeLinQ is an online therapy and support platform that makes it easy for therapists to connect with clients and provide therapy services. Here is a step-by-step guide on how WeLinQ works for therapists:
Setting up the profile: Once a therapist sets up their profile on WeLinQ, they become eligible to get listed on the explore page. Users can narrow their search using different filters on the therapists' explore page to find the right therapist for them.
Manage your availability: Update your availability - take time off if you are going on a vacation or just taking a day off. Find all steps described in detail here: https://www.blog.welinq.io/post/manage-your-availability-for-therapy-sessions
Finding clients: Users can filter therapists based on focus areas, experience, countries, language, and different accreditations. Once they decide to work with a therapist, they can either drop them a message or book a free 15-minute consultation.
Booking sessions: When a user books a therapy session, both the therapist and the user receive an email confirmation with the session details, including a meeting link for the secure video conference.
When a user books a therapy session - therapists and users both receive an email confirmation with the session details. Also, close to the session time both client and therapist receive a mobile notification for their upcoming session.
