Self help Apps
There are so many apps out there for self help but here are a few of my favourites. I must say that I have no affiliation with any of these apps. I am listing the ones that I have used or my clients or clinical supervisors have used.
Pacifica – a good all round CBT app, useful for helping to catch thoughts and feelings and check in throughout the day.
Buddhify – useful mindfulness app with realistic short chunks and a wheel with lots of different choices depending on which situation you are in.
Headspace – the established favourite of the mindfulness apps.
Silver Cloud – an online CBT program
Sleepio – a great app which discussed the evidence base behind sleep difficulties.
Catch it – developed jointly between the University of Liverpool and University of Manchester this is a great app for checking in with your mood and noting down what was happening at the time.
How to figure out what the problem is?
Try using this form to note down what’s happening for you at the moment. It can help to give how you feel a structure and will help your therapist to help you especially if you are going to try CBT.
