Media Tour conducted to discuss how 98% of Two Chairs clients find the right therapist on the first try.
While more Americans are seeking therapy than ever before, many people are matched with the wrong therapist. Two Chairs, the leader in connecting patients to the right therapist, has developed a solution called Matchmaker, an industry-leading technology platform that expertly connects people with the right therapist based on their health history, personal background, and clinical needs.
Research shows that a strong client-therapist relationship is the key to great therapy but finding the right therapist can feel overwhelming. Knowing where to start and what makes a great patient-therapist match saves time and increases the likelihood of success. Data shows that the majority of people attend just one therapy session before quitting:
1 in 5 patients quit therapy prematurely because they dont trust their therapist.
When Two Chairs hires a new therapist, Matchmaker analyzes their strengths, experiences, and skill sets, zeroing in on clinical presentations, diagnoses, focus areas, and demographics. For example, a therapist highly skilled in treating panic disorders may be less adept at addressing postpartum depression. Conversely, a clinician who has limited experience in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy may demonstrate a high level of expertise in utilizing Dialectical Behavior Therapy. This meticulous process ensures that the precise therapist-patient pairing is fine-tuned to match an individual's needs.
Two Chairs Matchmaker process considers over 300 factors, including therapy types (such as dynamic, emotion-focused, cognitive-behavioral, etc.), clinical styles, specific disorder expertise (anxiety, mood, trauma, addiction, eating, personality, etc.), life stages, relationships, identity, and more. Additionally, therapists can stipulate therapeutic approaches they choose not to practice, serving as a safeguard for both patients and clinicians. This comprehensive analysis ensures a tailored and optimal match for individuals seeking therapy.
Established with the goal of providing the highest quality outpatient mental health care system in the United States, Two Chairs boasts an impressive patient retention rate, with 90% of their patients continuing to a fourth sessionsignificantly surpassing the national average of 33%. Key to their treatment success is one of the most rigorous and sophisticated clinician-patient matching processes on the market. Two Chairs newly launched Matchmaker features further
empower clinicians to practice at the top of their license, allowing them to focus on cases they are most skilled in treating.
