Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Runs on your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch or Android device! By writing down the thoughts in your head when they happen you can catch flawed thinking and learn from it. You will invent your own referee who will give you the fair take on each thought vs. a negative and biased view.

  The App is a Tool
There is no magic application that can solve all problems. CBTReferee is only a tool to help you make the process of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy easier and more convenient. The referee is a hat you wear, you put on your referee hat and evaluate the thought from a completely neutral point of view.

  Help Study Thoughts
Half the battle is simplying getting the thought out of your head and down into written form. The very act of writing down the thought is therapeutic. Thoughts in our heads are nebulous and in flux, always changing. They are impossible to study. Like trying to study moving helicopter blades. But let the helicopter blade stop spinning and you can see each blade.
  Lock Thought List
Remember diaries with little pad locks on them? They stopped curious siblings from opening the book, but were no guarantee of security. If someone really wanted to break the lock, they could. CBTReferee lets you set a 4 digit passcode inside the app. It's enough to make you feel safe handing your phone to a friend.

  Always With You
You can't use something if it's not around! Nice thing about your portable device is you always have it with you. Thoughts that should be writen down can occur anytime, any place. If your iPhone is in your pocket, no problem, you can record the thought in a few seconds. The passcode is not needed to enter new thoughts, only to view previously entered ones.
