CalmKeeper gives you tools to quickly move from panic to peace. Designed by clinical psychologists, CalmKeeper helps you build skills to manage moments of stress and uncertainty.
CalmKeeper provides immediate access to tools that will help you cope in a panic attack.
CalmKeeper also helps you learn about panic. Understanding how panic works is the first step to overcoming it. People who get panic attacks gain confidence when they improve how they manage these situations.
CalmKeeper provides five tools to help you deal with panic attacks and anxious feelings. The tools are customisable so you can set up the app to suit your personal preferences, or to incorporate the advice from a therapist.
The Orb breathing tool
Maintaining a regular breathing pattern will slow your heart rate and calm you down. The orb is a beautiful breathing guide that helps you with abdominal breathing. Breathe in as the orb expands, and out as it contracts. You can change the orb’s timing to better suit your personal slow breathing speed.
Finding words in a jumble of letters is a great distraction when you’re feeling panic sensations. This tool is an exercise that uses your creativity and vocabulary. You can try to find 100 words on a screen, or start over with a fresh screen whenever you like.
Match game is a visual concentration game that’s designed to distract from your panic for more than a moment or two. Tap the grid to find the six shape pairs, and the game will refresh to a new grid. You might enjoy this game when you’re at peace as well.
Positive state coping statements
Coping statements help you overcome negative thoughts. CalmKeeper’s Positive State tool is a series of coping statements that you customise or include your own.
Distractions can keep your anxiety from escalating to panic. CalmKeeper’s Quick Distractions is a series of tasks that will keep your focus away from negative thoughts.
Panic attacks are common and can happen anywhere - in a meeting, at the supermarket, at a party, alone at home or in a crowd. You can take simple steps to cope and gain relief from what can be terrifying symptoms. Created by clinical psychologists, CalmKeeper can be used on its own, or in conjunction with therapy.

Ratings and Reviews
I'm an 18 year old girl who has been suffering from anxiety and depression for a number of years now. I have began to suffer from crippling panic attacks that would take over my mind and body. Because I'm in college and away from my regular support system of people, my therapist suggested I look into apps like this one, and he was so right. I 100% recommend this app. If you read the description and you think that the tools are too childish, then I would have to argue that you've really experienced a panic attack. Simple yet distracting techniques are what brings your mind away from dark places, and this app is most definitely keeping that in mind. If you're questioning the price, then I would base it off of how beneficial do you think having something like this to comfort you would be. It's easy, accessible, no ads, and a simple escape from a dangerous place. Only have great things to say about this.
$5 US is a steal for this gem
Calmkeeper sells itself as being an effective tool to use during a panic attack.
I know this is an individual experience, but since I've started utilizing this app 3 weeks ago, I have used it successfully instead of a klonopin EVERYTIME. You have to read the tutorials and get comfortable with it. I also think having ongoing treatment such as psychiatry and therapy from QMHPs also has a hand in how successful this app is for an individual.
$5US? Ppppfffffffff that's how much a single pill of klonopin costs without insurance. It's probably taken the place of $50 worth of prescriptions so far for me. If you're willing to work the app, my guess is that it would work for you.
Just what I needed
This app is wonderful. The creators are truly good people to design an app like this and offer it for free. It's the only app I found that is intended for use DURING a panic attack. It provides the perfect type of distraction for me and really helps me get through the attack (or at least until the Ativan kicks in). Again, thank you so much to the app creators. It's such a simple idea but means so much to someone like me. The calming design (especially the breathing orb) is also very nice.
