Wysa was amazing for about 15 minutes. After that wysa got repetitive and boring. I asked for a game to play with her since it helps my focus and boredom but all I got was organising my thoughts. Again. Maybe one day wysa will have more things to it but for now that a no.
Great concept, however has a ways to go. The chat bot often does not respond appropriately (in a way that makes sense). The breathing exercise (inhale as the circle grows) was a great touch, and the resources are helpful. I was interested in Wysa primarily for the chat bot, so would have liked more customized and relevant responses.
First off - you have to know and understand what CBT is before really getting the benefit of this app. It's not meant for boredom. CBT is used for extreme issues with depression and anxiety linked to trauma. Next - I've tried a lot of different CBT apps and I really like this one a lot. It's intuitive and has a ton of tools to help me when I'm having a very bad time. CBT is dry and repetitive but Wysa softens the task and gives you that human ish quality of compassion you need when you're struggling. I've only been using this app for a short time and can tell it's going to be of great help. Last - my qualms are it hangs in loading content which is hard when I'm having an episode and sometimes I really am in no mindset to come up with a better positive reframed thought and could use some help. Wysa only critiques rewritten thoughts. Sometimes some gentle assistance is needed in those difficult moments like suggested rephrase. That's it. Happy I have a pocket coach to help with my 2 therapists.
This app has been very helpful to me, this is my first day having it, but already it had helped me think more rationally of very jumbled, panicked thoughts. It is good for people who worry about dragging others down, and will help you come to talk to others after getting used to talking to wysa. Very caring, very helpful, provides call centres if you are feeling absolutely hopeless and will not show up in search histories if you worry about that. (Will show up in Internet tab history, still delete that)
Got repetitive but still a good idea, a work in progress really. Sometimes doesn't really understand what I say but... it's alright. Toolbox is great.
Amazing potential. I've been looking for an app like this for some time and I've finally found it having heard of woebot. This is great but needs work as it gets repetitive and doesn't always respond appropriately but it's really cute and does help, as someone who suffers from mental issues this is pretty useful. 😋
