Robot psychologist: a new era in mental health services


Groningen, The Netherlands,
March 3, 2008

To actually consult a psychologist with emotional problems is quite a step for most people. For those who hesitate, it might be much easier to consult MindMentor, the first robot-psychologist, available at Clinical psychologists Jaap Hollander and Jeffrey Wijnberg from Holland write history with this on-line life coach.

Many Dutch newspapers, radio- and TV programs recently reported on this new development in psychology. Said David Van Nuys, Ph.D. (Emeritus Professor of Psychology Sonoma State University): “At the end of the hour-long session, I have to say my outlook and spirits were lifted considerably. It was smart, supportive, fun, and funny and helped me to focus in on the central issue. I find the blend of artificial intelligence, NLP, and other goal-directed therapeutic techniques effective”.

Some psychologists thought it was impossible – and some still think so - but it actually works. People solve their problems and attain their life goals with MindMentor’s help. In 2006, Hollander and Wijnberg did a test-run with 1600 clients from all over the world. Results showed that MindMentor was able to solve the problems for 47% in just one session, a score that any real life psychologist would be proud of.

Every English speaking person with internet can now present his problem to MindMentor. The absolutely unique feature of MindMentor is, that there is no real psychologist working behind the scene, but that MindMentor, by asking smart questions, addresses the unconscious mental resources of the client. With help from his colleagues RoboRorschach ( projective testing ) and ProvoBot (provocative humor), MindMentor can provide a solution or new perspective in a session of about an hour. MindMentor speaks English in order to cater to as many people as possible.
