iCouch CBT uses techniques based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and aims to help users learn and practice skills to change distorted thought processes that contribute to mood and anxiety disorders. Users complete a step-by-step process for each problematic situation or event, including a mood tracking feature. iCouch CBT also provides access to an online resource for finding a mental health provider. The app can be used in conjunction with the help of a mental health provider, though it is not required. Note: In addition to the CBT app, iCouch also provides a variety of tools for therapists. PsyberGuide has not reviewed or rated these additional features.
