Special Announcement

There are other competitors offering digital CBT services. The main one on iOS and Android is called 'CBT Thought Diary and Journal' - need to find a way to differentiate

1-2% of the global population suffers with diagnosed OCD. Only trained clinical psychologists are in a position to diagnose patients with the condition after a series of consultations. These are expensive (average cost of £120 per hour) and not always accessible due to the capacity constraints of local therapists. This app would help patients identify symptoms, self-diagnose and then access remote advice and guidance from a CBT-trained clinical psychologist without the expensive price tag.
