"Discovered this marvellous app by pure accident, but I’m so grateful that I did. It came in the right time into my life. After reading a serious of books on topics of psychology, NLP, self-help and using many meditation and life-changing apps, this one stands among my favourites. It feels very personal, non judgemental. It’s easy and intuitive to use, but not childish and it combines great mindfulness, meditation techniques, as well as psychological challenges."
Thank you for using 29k and being part of our community! We are always making improvements to make your experience better.
This release comes with a brand new exercise that we’ve created together with Danny Saucedo, Anis Don Demina and Cecilia Von der Esch. It’s called ‘Your inner friend’ and it guides you through exploring how we all talk to ourselves in both critical and friendly ways.
Also, this update includes:
- New and improved design of the discover tab making it easier for you to find the type of content you need.
- ’Letting go of control’, a new exercise helping you to deal with difficult emotions and practice acceptance.
And as always, we have also improved app performance through the usual bug fixes. If you run into any troubles do not hesitate to let us know at email@example.com
Ratings and Reviews
I was skeptical at first that this platform would provide me with the right tools needed for personal growth in mental health and other areas of my life that I have been struggling with for about 7 years. I’ve been very active in therapy since then and talking helps, CBT helps, all of it helps but you only have around an hour once a week to work on whatever is on your mind. Most of the time I don’t know what to say or what is most important to address. But, by downloading this app, answering a few questions about myself, and realizing how amazing this will be for me, I made the jump. There’s something different about putting pen to paper, listening to the videos, meditating to the sound of a soothing voice while focusing on your breath and whatever is going on within your body at that very moment that made me realize maybe this is better than therapy. The best thing about it all is making yourself comfortable in your own space and not having to talk while focusing on the lesson. This is one thing I can do everyday that will help me in life changing ways. Just one step at a time. Day by day. I know things will get better. Thank you for this app 29k and everyone else who took the time to partner with them and offer this platform for everyone, for free, forever.

Hi there KTMGRAY. Thank you so much for taking the time to give us such a beautiful review, and for making the decision to work on your inner growth :) Hope you continue to enjoy the courses and find them helpful, we'll be adding new content on an ongoing basis. All the best from the 29k Team.
I’m a therapist and I’m SO grateful for this resource. One of the most frustrating things for me as a clinician is how expensive access to Mental Health is and how the financial piece is a big barrier for some people to have consistency. Repetition is extremely important when it comes to creating neural pathways, changing habits, patterns and learning new ways of being in the world. In short, healing needs repetition, consistency and discipline and sometimes due to financial reasons people might not be able to have that and often times drop out of therapy leaving hopeless. I’m so glad this tool exists. Great for people who are currently in therapy as a way to continue working out themselves (without braking the bank), people who are not ready to start therapy or doesn’t want to but want to learn more about themselves, and people who are done with therapy but want to keep growing.
I’m enjoying it myself too! Thank you for putting this out in the world! 💜

Hi there. Thank you so much for taking the time to give us this beautiful review, we really appreciate hearing from you and to know you see the value of what we're trying to create for the world. Great that you are also taking the time to work on your own inner growth as well :) All the best from the 29k Team.
I have followed Rachel for a long time. It is ironic how the timing of this app has come into my life. I’m about to graduate college. I am being constantly bogged down by fears, stress, and feelings of inadequacy. This app has come into my life when I truly need to pause and work on my self confidence, passion, and ability to be present- present with myself, present at work, present in my relationships and simply present in the world. There is no one else I trust more than Rachel to guide me in something so intimate and personal- thank you a thousand times over. I am inspired and sharing this with my entire family, all my friends, and as many people I can think of to receive this blessing. Thank you.
