Anxiety is something that many of us feel at one point or another in our lives, especially when faced with stressful events and changes. Occasionally feeling anxious, particularly about events or situations that are challenging or threatening, is a normal and extremely common response. It’s also a natural human response when we perceive we are in danger. But if anxiety is so prevalent that it impacts your ability to carry out life as normal, you may need to seek help.
The Better app has an intuitive and simple interface, instilling a sense of calm simply through interaction. Created by leading consultant psychotherapist John Halker and experienced marketer Peter Grange, it allows you to “check in” on your current state of mental health, offering tools to calm anxiety and improve mental wellbeing.
The Better app includes an emotional needs check, encourages talking and exercise, promotes calm through simple breathing exercises, and offers the ability to connect with therapists.

‘There are clear and proven benefits for the user - better sleep, emotional health, deeper understanding of human needs, better physical wellbeing - in brief, how to design and build a better life,’ said Mr Halker.
