Frequently Asked Questions


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 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.

Really helpful notebook

I did not know if this would work for me, but so far I've been loving it. I have been able to process my feelings better because of this notebook, I use it just when I feel I need it and it has helped me recognize my triggers and ends up calming me down in moments of stress.

How Do I Feel? Excited About This Book!!

The quality, design and beauty of this book have surpassed expectations. Writing on the pages helps me to externalise the situation/thoughts in a meaningful way, and as it is interspersed with useful evidence-based information it helps develop a deep understanding of the mechanisms at play. It really is a beautiful resource, feels like a treasure.

This notebook is such a wonderful tool to clear your mind and help you step away from feeling overwhelmed. It's simple, understated, and beautiful, but full of useful information and tools. I love that I can always reference the different tools and use my own written experiences as templates for other moments. Thank you to team Therapy Notebooks!

Guides abstract thoughts to concretion. Helps identify negative behavioral patterns.

What I love most about this journal is that you don't feel obligated to write in it every day. I pick mine up when I'm feeling overwhelmed and start an entry. Recognizing and identifying my emotions and what cognitive distortions I am employing makes me feel heard, and my feelings seem validated. Traditional interpersonal therapy in a structured setting never worked for me. It was too much pressure, and I always found myself being overly absorbed in the fact that I was subject to the interpretations of another person, and how I was being perceived based on my physical presence and body language. This notebook guides you through your own feelings, and encourages you to re-evaluate the situation and identify the difference between ~reality~ and ~*not reality*~.
