What does the app do?
This NZ-developed app offers self-help based on cognitive behavioural therapy techniques. Users choose a theme they want to explore such as ‘perfectionism’ and 'comparing myself to others' and scroll through a list of associated symptoms and unhelpful beliefs. They can read or listen to short insights that challenge those beliefs. The app allows users to share an insight with others, set up reminders to read or listen to it at a certain time of the day, and set up trigger alerts where the insight pops up on screen when the user goes to certain locations. For a more detailed description of the app, see App website, iTunes or Google Play and for a detailed review, see Reviews.
