Anny, a CBT based anxiety management app
Helping people suffering from anxiety and anxiety related symptoms using methods from
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
Creating a holistic, accessible user experience to help with anxiety in a situation where professional help is not available immediately.
It started with a personal experience where CBT based methods were only available in a physical book which was inconvenient for recording symptoms.

From the interviews I grouped responses into five distinct categories and
1. Understanding therapy
2. Experience of anxiety
3. Kinds of anxious thoughts
4. Physical symptoms of anxiety
5. Things that improve their mood
From these response groups I picked out commonly occurring themes.
Some examples are
“Talking to others improves mood”
“Feelings of accomplishment or self improvement reduces anxiety”
