Description

iCounselor: Your portable self help tool.

Learn skills to resist obsessions and compulsions!

All material was written by a licensed psychotherapist (LCSW) with twenty-five years of counseling experience.

Revisions on this version include a list of thinking errors that contribute to OCD, and a new icon.

You first rate the frequency and strength of the OCD thoughts on a color coded scale of 0 (none) to 10 (continual, very difficult to resist).

You then move on to the first set of skills, where you will select one of ten different calming activities to perform. If you are not sure which skill to select, shake the iPhone or iPod and one will be randomly chosen.

After following the instructions for the calming activity, you will select one of ten ways to change your thoughts, or shake the device for a random selection. Changing your thoughts in order to change your feelings is the basis of cognitive behavioral psychotherapy, the most widely practiced form of psychotherapy.

After utilizing one of the thought changers, you proceed to selecting one method for resisting the rituals or compulsions (or again, you may shake the device for a random selection). This is the basis of exposure and response prevention, the evidence based method of OCD treatment.

After implementing those skills, you rate the level of OCD again in order to determine if the skills you chose were effective for you. If the level of the OCD has not reduced sufficiently, you will be given the opportunity to try again, selecting a different skill set.

Unfortunately Lacks Competition

Currently, there are no other apps with similar functionality that I can find. I keep thinking how nice it would be if there was an update that increased the functionality of this app. It would be super useful if it kept track of anxiety levels over time and strategies used. Maybe more focus on obsessions instead of being so heavy on compulsion control.
It's a nice and useful app, I would just add so much more into it if I were the developer. I may eventually assimilate this info into Daily Tracker to get more than just list functionality. (also won't have to deal with the icon. A little dude freaking out? Really?)
