Founder of Text-Tonic: Psychologist

The first interactive text based advice service is set to launch on 16 March 2009. Run by Mental Health Professionals who are on call eight hours a day (2pm to 10pm)to help with daily dilemmas and life’s challenges – eg. relationships, stress management, low self esteem.

A problem shared is a problem halved. A service for those who want immediate feedback on issues they are facing in life. Text Tonic offers a fresh perspective and endeavours to reply within two hours. Advice is based on and influenced by the “Positive Psychology” school of thought, Cognitive-Behavioural therapy and brief solution-focused interventions.(see website for further details).

Downloads are available from the website and there is an email option for those that require a more in-depth analysis. Simply type your question starting with the word "Advice" followed by a space, your name/ nickname and a description of what you want help with to: 81812. You can expect a prompt reply between the hours of 14.00 and 22.00 - 7 days a week. Hopefully this will be increased to 24 hrs a day once demand increases.

As long as you have a mobile, you have constant access to this supportive service. Text Tonic looks forward to guiding you through life’s ups and downs.
