Taxi company offers passengers free in-car therapy sessions

A Stockholm taxi company is to send therapists out with its drivers to help travellers talk through their problems on their journey.

Stockholm residents can book the three available therapy taxis with Taxi Stockholm in advance and spend as long as they like chatting to a licensed therapist.

The Local reports the service will be free and there is no need for passengers to worry about cab drivers discussing their issues - they have all signed non disclosure agreements.

Mia Fahlén, one of the psychologists involved in the project, said even a 10 minute trip could help customers. "We don't know exactly how long each trip will be, so we have to be flexible."
