About this project

Feeling stressed or down? Petals helps you find a therapist you can truly trust, and talk to immediately, whenever you need. We're raising funds with the aim to make accessible, immediate help to all, come to fruition. We'll be using what we raise towards improving our application for the users, and growing our network of qualified therapists. 

How Does it Work ?

Petals connects you with a network of therapists and matches you with a compatible counselor based off a unique and comprehensive personality test.

After filling out this personality test, you can browse among the most suitable counselors for you through the application and chat with a counselor of your choice at any time to receive the help you are searching for. Starting out, new users will receive a free $50 credit for the application after verification. If you like the service, you can choose to subscribe for a low cost of $15 an hour (monthly and yearly plans available too) and continue to develop the special bond shared between you and your counselor.
