Are you having trouble working through your emotions? Do you need a safe place to vent? Or perhaps you feel overwhelmed and don’t know where to start?
Pointo can help you unlock your innate power to heal yourself, to stay in control of your mental and emotional health.
Pointo combines 3 simple proven therapeutic approaches - talk therapy (psychotherapy), journaling, and body-mind therapies.
Strengthen your body-mind connection:
Talking is the natural way for people to communicate. Your voice is an expression of your body, similar to posture and gestures.
Voice and sound are important channels to regulate your own emotions (also known as self-soothing), change your mood, and stay mindful.
Free your mind
By speaking out your thoughts and feelings, you can “off-load” the processing of your emotions and thoughts from your brain to Pointo. This results in better memory, and better sleep.
Evoke positivity and gratitude
Your memories can support you in dealing with traumatic events or hard times. Research shows that you can cope with stress by evoking your own positive memories - your favourite calming place, a sweet childhood memory with your grandparents, a comfort food, or a nostalgic smell.
Cherish self reflection
Think of everything you talk about in Pointo as voice letters to your future self. By integrating mood tracking into your personal life story through journaling, Pointo can help you improve both your mental health and social skills. Imagine how valuable it would be to be able to listen back on your talking in a few months’ time…
Develop emotional intelligence
Verbalizing your emotions helps you to identify and manage your mood and motivation. Coping effectively with emotions also helps you to pursue your goals and dreams in the face of hardships - an important predictor of success.
By talking through your experiences and reflecting on them with Pointo, you can gain clarity into your thoughts and emotions.
Understanding what affects you is the first and essential step towards effective self-help with stress, anxiety, depression, low mood, or any challenging situation or circumstances.
Pointo is designed to be minimalist and easy-to-use, so it comes to you as a blank canvas to express your own personality and lifestyle.
Express yourself with a photo, drawing, or other visuals. Document your emotions and thoughts in rich detail with journal stickers, tags, long notes, and places. Imagine traveling back in time to reflect on your past experiences and see how much you’ve grown as a person.
For your privacy and peace of mind, Pointo locks with a private passcode. All data can be optionally backed-up to your personal Google Drive. Everything on the technical side has been taken care of for you, so you can start right away.

Coming soon: mindfulness and meditation practices using ASMR and natural sounds.
Important note: Pointo is not a replacement for sharing with a friend or a therapist. However, if you feel insecure about sharing with a person, you can start by practicing with Pointo on your own first (you can also privately share the recording via link).
Some people also find that they prefer voicing with Pointo when they are walking, cooking, running or doing another activity, which helps to “unlock” their brain.
We sincerely hope you find Pointo helpful in your mental and emotional health journey.
