ACT and DBT have been instrumental to how I live my life, and as someone with persistent depression, this notebook is a necessary tool for rediscovering how to process my life.

Ashley L.

This guided book is great if you are trying to manage moments of depression on your own or as a companion of you're being treated by a therapist. The guided prompts help structure your thoughts and see them on paper, rather than spiraling in your own head.

Natali T.

I found that working through the exercises was extremely helpful in reframing several issues that were getting me upset and helping me to focus more on what I enjoy, rather than on those things that are upsetting.

Anne E.

Even just a few pages of reading gives an idea or tool that helps to slowly lift me out of it.

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.
