What is Soch Connect?

Soch Connect is a revolutionary platform that uses a simple set of questions to connect South Asians to the right therapist. We understand the importance of culture and language in therapy, and our platform ensures these factors remain at the forefront.

While traditional therapist directories can be overwhelming, Soch Connect stands out by seamlessly guiding you to the right therapist. We accomplish this by meticulously matching your unique needs with the most suitable clinical expertise, ensuring a personalized and effective therapeutic experience.

How does Soch Connect work?

By prioritizing culture and language, our platform revolutionizes the typical therapist selection process. You will begin your journey with Soch Connect by answering a few questions about yourself so we can understand your needs for seeking therapy. The algorithm will process your answers and provide you with your top 3 matches for therapists. You can then begin your healing journey by connecting with one of your matches.

Is there a cost for me to use Soch Connect and find a therapist?

Our service is entirely free for individuals seeking a therapist through Soch Connect. Each individual therapist has their own hourly rate which you are responsible for paying in order to receive psychotherapy once you have been matched and select your therapist.

Do I need to provide private health information?

At Soch Connect, we take your privacy very seriously. We understand that seeking mental health support is a very sensitive matter, thus we have done our due diligence in ensuring your privacy is secured.

Our privacy policy pertains to information you provide as a user to get matched to a therapist through our website. It does not apply to the user and the therapist they choose to work with. The user is encouraged to confirm the therapist’s privacy and confidentiality policies and how they collect and use your personal information.

Our website requests general information about your mental health concerns to match you to a therapist. Our matching process uses your general responses to match you with a therapist. You may be asked to share your age range, racial or ethnic background, your preferred gender, age range and faith for a therapist and your preferred cost of therapy. By providing this information to us through our matching questionnaire, you agree to processing your information for the purpose of matching you with a therapist. We are not responsible for the information that you share with us through the matching questionnaire.
