Recommended Psychotherapy Apps
NEW!!! I have created a YouTube channel where you can see videos about mental health (many are already posted on this website), and playlists for clients receiving treatment for phobias. I will also use the channel to post useful videos for clients, instructional videos, promotional videos, and video blog posts. YouTube channel: Dr. Candice Bovell, Clinical Psychologist.
This is a list of apps I have used/tested, recommended to clients, or incorporated into my practice. This is not an endorsement, and I am not personally affiliated with any of the app companies.
