“As a clinical counsellor, I realized the need for an app that would help my clients who suffer with anxiety. Given the significant shift in technology over writing, I have found an app that encompasses all the necessary components of supporting and tracking anxiety symptoms. The new MindShift™ CBT app provides resources to help manage anxiety, including healthier thinking, a chill out zone, and taking action. As a clinician, I can now have my clients share their Thought Journals and Belief Experiment CBT homework by ‘sharing their progress” with me from this app. This helps me better track their progress and support treatment goals. I plan to use the MindShift™ CBT app exclusively as a support tool for my clients who have symptoms of anxiety. More importantly, clients can continue to use this one-stop resource app to help manage any future mild symptoms of anxiety.”
