This is really cool!

I have been recovering from depression and anxiety disorder and I was recommended to this app. It’s really quick and easy to use and lighthearted which makes it quite fun to use. The illness itself is so hard sometimes that anything like this that can help us to stop for a few minutes and re focus in times of need has got to be a positive thing. Keep up the good work! X

Although i haven’t been diagnosed with anxiety, the times i do fee worried or stressed this helps me determine the root of my problem and learn to take time for myself.

As well as helping me i also use it to educate myself on anxiety so i can better empathise with those who have it, using the ‘learn’ tab.

There are many little features which aren’t necessary, but very convenient such as ‘tools’ and ‘goals’.

I think this app is VERY high quality and would definitely recommend it. It’s great to help you ground yourself and know what to do when you feel overwhelmed, rather than panicking.

I would like there to not be a character limit. I always just turn on the microphone and vent, to see that most hasn’t been written. I do this because i often talk to myself about these things in the mirror; I’ve read that it’s better to get it in writing, which I can’t really do

Thank you

A really helpful app - gives me somewhere to vent when I feel stressed or upset and helps me to calm down. There’s also a feature to let you get help if needed. Thank you for being an app that’s dedicated to helping people rather than being a money-making scheme like most other calming apps.
