The company was also featured in an article by Steven Smith titled, “Relationship Advice from Talkspace.” The article discusses the necessary tools that cohabitating couples will need to help their relationship succeed. Talkspace reveals that the couple needs to have an action plan. The couple needs to keep the line of communication open and that communication should be at the core of the relationship. They need to communicate both what works well and the struggles in a thoughtful way to work through their separate issues.

Another key factor in helping the couple manage is to manage the meltdown. Many relationships can take a sudden nosedive when people freak out or overreact to the mistakes they make. Many things can cause a meltdown for either party including jealousy, fear of abandonment and other issues. Though it is impossible to change the past, the partners need to manage how they act after they argue. They need to identify what is at the heart of the disagreement. Health couples should also make sure they are not constantly blaming the others and to be accountable for their own actions. Individuals need to be reflective on their behavior so they can deal with issues honestly. Visit: http://www.iamtrillyoga.com/blog-posts/2018/2/13/-talkspace-was-there-when-i-needed-them
