iThinkSmarter Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Treatment app

I have used this CBT app, it was recommended by my local GP. I used it to tackle my anxiety and worry that i have had for many years. I have had counselling and therapy before but this app made perfect sense to me, was easy to follow and wasnt patronising or full of psycho babble.

I cannot recommend it enough, since using it three o my friends have also downloaded it and only wish it was on prescription.
