This notebook gave me space to admit things I wouldn't have been otherwise able to. It allowed that pause, the moment of recognization about how I've been impacted by my trauma. Being able to truly feel that has been a huge relief & I can consider working that devastation out.

I have only done two weeks/sessions so far but just in those two sessions of writing I've noticed more detail from the trauma. It's straight forward guidance with a lot of compassion. Will purchase another!

Therapist Approved! Seems like a super good start for someone just starting to handle their trauma. I've been in PTSD therapy for a year and a half now, and my therapist still suggests I try this because any work is still good work.

Great to help prepare; great to utilize for follow up.

This is a very well organized journal. Has excellent structure for preparing for therapy, referencing during a therapy session, and most importantly recording information that is needed for effective follow up that’s ensuring the value of the therapy. It has an easy way to set goals and key issues that need to be discussed and addressed and is very easy to use in practice. It is very practical and super helpful journal and one that really helps to organize so that therapy sessions are optimized in terms of their effectiveness in treatment.

Improving the quality of care I receive

Now that I have had a session with my therapist after starting my Therapy Journal, I can say that in those 45 minutes I felt way more ready and fully present than I have ever felt in therapy. As someone who benefits from having a structure I can lean on and who has always had trouble having successful outcomes with advisors, therapists, managers, etc., I'm excited about how this journal will help keep me on track between sessions. Plus the journal itself is a beautiful object and has been an interesting conversation starter with housemates and friends about mental health and therapy.

Really great resource

I didn't expect that I'd like this so much, but it's everything I needed it to be. It's a dedicated place to keep short notes ahead of sessions, so I can keep track of my recurring thoughts and feelings in a way that's ultimately useful.

Double Your Benefits

The Therapy Notebook is great tool to help organize thoughts, track progress, and collect all notes from your therapy sessions. This book came out at the perfect time for me--i was trying to come up with a system to keep track of thoughts, identify patterns, document goals, and all the nuggets i gain from my therapy sessions. Problem solved with this notebook!

Great resource for those who don't have a lot of time to journal

I enjoy journaling and working through processing emotions, events, and feelings with the written word. But as a busy professional with small children, I don't have the time to devote as much to this task as I'd like. Using the therapy journal and anxiety journal is great for me because writing an entry takes only a few minutes. And on the days I have more time to process things, there is the option of writing more in the blank pages towards the end. I'd recommend these journals to anyone who wants to keep up journaling and writing with limited time to do so.
