What is “self-therapy journaling”?

Self-therapy journaling is an activity that helps your brain make connections, dig deep, and find solutions to whatever you are struggling with.

My Therapy Buddy is designed to take self-therapy journaling to a new level with intuitive prompts and activities that can help even the most apathetic human dig deep without stress.

Who is My Therapy Buddy made for?


Students, business owners, young parents, retirees, expats, and even people who identify as “very boring”.

Whether you are an emotional extrovert who lives on Nutella or an emotionless lizard who thrives on alternative metal music, every individual can benefit from using My Therapy buddy as a self-therapy and companion CBT and SFBT tool.

Why did you create My Therapy Buddy?

In the midst of the 2020 coronavirus outbreak, we saw an immense need for affordable and accessible mental health tools that could be used for a wide range of life situations.

So, we created a solution-focused therapy tool that fills a gap between emergency hotlines and actual therapists.
