"This app is the single greatest tool to help me collect and work though my negative thoughts on a day to day basis."

"If you are struggling with invasive thoughts, anxiety, depression, etc. you need this app!! I feel better after every entry."

"Amazing, the only thing that's worked for me!! Such a help to challenge my negative thoughts. I'm feeling 100x better. Give it a go :)"

"This application is vital for my day to day mental health. It's easier to use than a paper journal and gets to the heart of my usual mental struggles. It's definitely helped me to be more content with my life."


CBT Thought Diary is a journal with a purpose: it uses effective tools from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Positive Psychology to help improve your mood.

Think of this app as a space to reflect on your thoughts, both positive and negative. Record your mood, reflect on your emotions, practice gratitude, and analyze your thoughts with proven & effective techniques.

Thought Diary will help you evaluate, understand, and change your thoughts and feelings. By using this application, you can work to identify your emotions, analyze how and why you're feeling this way, challenge those negative beliefs, change your thinking patterns for future situations, and remember positive experiences.

You can use this app as a mood journal, a thought record journal, and a gratitude journal all in one!

before i started this app i felt so awful all the time and i overreacted to EVERYTHING but after spending just a few weeks with this app, it’s helped me hugely and i have definitely got happier and more content with myself. it really helps me consider how i’m feeling, be truthful with myself, and then makes me think of how i could deal with how i’m feeling. i used to avoid trying to find ways of giving ways to deal with my problems because i was embarrassed but i don’t feel that way with this app - it makes me feel proud that i conquered my spiral of feelings and dealt with it :)

Genuinely so helpful.

I struggle to reason with myself, this app helps me work through my stresses and thoughts and at the end of it at least I have made some progress. Regardless whether I feel better or if I have made a breakthrough it’s all progress and to be honest without this app I probably would’ve done things that would’ve further contributed towards my stresses and mood. 10/10. It’s free, at least give it a go!

I repeat; Any word on the one off payment option please?

If you don’t answer it will be apparent that you do not care about having people’s business. Reduced one star, down to 2 star due to no reply being received.

Again .. I ask;

Any word on the one off payment option please? Happy to support you by upgrading but can’t do subscription.

Update Weds 16 Dec 20/ hello developers thank you for the reply. I’ve got it now.

Ps, any word on the one off payment option please? Happy to support you by upgrading but can’t do subscription.


Sat 12 Dec 20/ Hello can we have a function edit an entry please? Mistakes are made. Would appreciate it. Thank you.


Hello can you give a one off payment choice please? Regards.

Developer Response ,

Sorry, buddy. We can't offer a one-time payment option because when we did in the past, we were roundly criticized for having it in the first place because the price was too high. But it has to be higher than the yearly version, or else everyone would buy that. You know what? As a reward for your dedication, send us an email at moodtools@moodtools.org and we can figure something out just for you.
