“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 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.

Wonderful

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*~.
