Colfax, CA, United States, 2006/01/24 - Digital Solutions, Inc. launched a new service that allows overwhelmed or frustrated people to anonymously call and vent their stress to live listeners.
Digital Solutions, Inc. today launched a new service that allows stressed, overwhelmed and even angry people to reduce their emotional overload instantly. By connecting anonymously with one of many live listeners, callers can vent, get things off their chest or simply talk from anywhere at anytime.
“Not everyone needs a costly, face-to-face therapy session,” says company spokesman Chris James. “Most people simply need someone to talk to, quickly and spontaneously. With the powerful combination of talking and remaining anonymous, callers can unleash what they’re holding inside, from any phone, effectively reducing their stress and improving their well-being, or it can simply change their perspective on a bad day.”
Users of the service can begin, if they choose, by sampling the Audio Profiles of available Listeners, from all walks of life, at the InstantListener.com Web Community, to select the best Listener for an anonymous talk session. Sampling Audio Profiles enables callers to hear how prospective Listeners will sound before connecting for a few minutes or an hour-long voice-to-voice conversation.
“This service aims to fill a void in today’s ever-increasingly hurried, hectic and disconnected culture. There’s a large and growing body of research that shows many physical and mental health benefits of being connected with others,” James says.
For example, one expert Thomas Glass, assistant professor in the Dept. of Human Development and Health at Harvard School of Public Health, concludes, “Social engagement was as strong as anything we found in determining longevity. It was stronger than things like blood pressure, cholesterol or other measures of health.”
This new Instant Listener service, utilizes call-bridging technology which facilitates private and anonymous, voice-to-voice connections, from any telephone. Additionally, the InstantListener system allows “callers” to pay for talk sessions anonymously, via an “alias name.” Talk time is priced anywhere from free, to 50 cents per-minute or more, which, according to James, “makes stress reduction affordable to every budget.”
