Fear Nix is designed to help users identify and manage their fears and phobias. The app is built around principles of Exposure and Response Prevention, a type of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. The app encourages users to identify the phobias and fears that are most intrusive for them, and take small steps towards the fear. The app also provides coping skills to manage the distress associated with facing fears, including guided meditations, deep breathing, and suggestions for social support options. Users can view their exposure histories and skill logs, where the app provides insight into the skills that appear to be most and least effective for the user before and after exposure sessions.
