CBT Apps for iPhone

As part of a Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) approach, it is quite usual for a therapist to suggest homework exercises for a client to undertake between sessions. In order to support some of these you can get smart phone app – to remind you, make it more fun or interesting, and to make sure that you are doing it right. There are apps that can help you with relaxation exercises, suggest tips on overcoming stress or sleep problems, and those that help you to record and challenge thought errors or unhelpful thoughts.

It can be difficult choosing which of these apps are best or most appropriate. Some of them may not represent strategies correctly, which may render the advice or support ineffective or confusing. It’s my intention to review a few of the apps that I’ve come across for the iPhone / iOS platform here on my blog.

If you would like me to take a look at any that you’re thinking of buying – email me!

Equally, it would be great to hear from any developers who have got apps in the app store, or in development. Perhaps I could interview you, or we could work together on something in the future!
