WorryTree has been designed to help you record and manage your worries on the go through a simple, secure app.
Based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques, WorryTree takes you through a series of decision steps once you've noticed that you're worrying about something:
1. Asking yourself, what are you worrying about right now?
2. Asking yourself, is this a worry that can be resolved or is it something you have no control over
3. Moving on, either by making an action plan for your worry (either now or later) or finding ways to distract yourself from your worrying thoughts.
WorryTree also lets you customise which distractions work best for you, as well as categorise your worries so you can see patterns over time. You can also set reminders so that you don't forget when you have made an action plan to deal with your worry but can't do it until later on.
WorryTree is not a substitute for professional mental health care, therapy or advice. If you're worried about any aspect of your mental health, or someone else's, you should always approach a professional.
This updated release of WorryTree helps you note and manage the worries. We're also working on further functionality so that you can link through to relaxation music and other distractions - watch this space!
WorryTree has been designed to work alongside your therapy sessions if you're working with a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. It allows you to record and categorise your worries so that you can discuss them at your therapy sessions.
