I get it , but ...

I understand the concept but it hasn’t got much to the app , at first when in state of panic anger and depressive stages I go through , going through the app helped , after a couple tries it got repetitive , would definitely be better if maybe it had different categories and questions to how your feeling so it can give different coping strategies etc , recommend giving it a try though

I find it very helpful. I use it to touch base with my thinking, to STOPP & consider what’s going on, what am I’m obsessing about, worrying about. Am I being really hard on myself. Am I being unnecessarily fearful. Personally I think it’s great. My thinking is my problem & this helps me step back. I have suffered most of my life with fear, negative self crucifying self criticism & irrational worry. It’s been tough living in my head ! The steps on this app help me no end. Thanks for developing it.
