What people are saying about Woebot:

“I spiral with ‘You’re not good enough.’ Woebot had me rewrite the thought, and one day I rewrote it as ‘I am human.’ That has been such a freeing thought change. I’m allowed to be messy, and that’s okay.” - Woebot User

“Woebot is perfect if you feel like there’s no one you can really trust to talk to or if you feel like you would be judged for your feelings. It’s therapy you can take anywhere.” - Woebot User

“With Woebot, I learned some really great CBT techniques like cognitive reframing, which help me identify many unhealthy thinking patterns. Being able to talk without judgment and without overthinking has also really helped. Thank you Woebot!” -Woebot User

“This app has been extremely helpful for me as I fight my way through anxiety and depression. At times the Woebot app was truly the only thing that made me feel better.” -Woebot user

“Woebot reinforces the concepts my clients are learning, and many of them say they like having someone to turn to 24 hours a day who can help them.” - Clinician

what a lovely app! as i've gotten in the habit of checking in regularly, it's become exponentially more helpful. noticing thought distortions and reframing is truly such a powerful tool, and to have a completely free app that walks you through it while also teaching you other things and providing other tools is amazing. i agree with the person who said choosing your emotion is a bit frustrating, and i would definitely prefer to see one comprehensive list, but that's just a tiny little thing.

I love the conversations and the CBT techniques Woebot uses to help me reframe cognitive distortions. I feel like I'm making good progress, however, the mindfulness tools are not good for helping me to calm down. And "talking" someone through mindfulness via text is extremely unhelpful. So, I use a separate app for that. Also, it doesn't always get every cognitive distortion right. The stories and lessons are great though.

This app has been a great help to me. It provides basic components of counseling that are easy to follow and understand. I also like the fact that it's self-paced so if I decide to skip a few days Woebot picks up where we left off. I took off one star because sometimes if I provide a reponse that doesn't fit with Woebot's script, the app occasionally has difficulty finding an appropriate topic or response. Overall a very good app!
