This blog is a round-up of the Best Apps for Therapists as Recommended by Therapists.

The latest statistics show that worldwide, 86% of us own a smartphone and on average adults are spending anywhere between between 2.9 hours to 6.7 hours a day using smartphone apps.

From ZOOM sessions to admin to marketing and advertising, counsellors and psychotherapists around the globe are leveraging the power of handheld technology and running their private practice business coaching, counselling, psychotherapy and clinical supervision practices online and via their iPad or iPhone.

I recently put a call out in my Blog Your Way to Private Practice Success Facebook Group for counsellors’ and psychotherapists’ favourite apps and have rounded up their responses here for you! If your best app for therapists isn’t on the list already, feel free to add it in the comments below.

Organisation & Task Management Apps


Virtual co-working for getting anything done.

By Liz Gray, Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Systems + Mindset Clini-Coach®. Coaching & Consulting for Highly Sensitive Therapists in Private Practice.

My favourite app is FocusMate.

I hop on a FocusMate session at the end of every clinical day to do my progress notes. It’s a great way to have external accountability, consistency in my schedule, AND to meet new people around the world for body doubling sessions!


More than a doc. Or a table. Customize Notion to work the way you do.

My favourite app is Notion.

I use notion daily to organise and manage every element of my business, including task tracking, project management, content creation, idea storage, daily/weekly/monthly/yearly reviews, goal setting, team communications etc.

I love that it’s a powerful database software that creates easy methods of storing, tracking and resurfacing the multitude of moving parts that come with running a business, so that the right information presents itself at the time you need it most.

It does take a while to customise to your liking and to understanding the more technical elements which may make the app prohibitive to those looking for a simple solution, but once the system is setup it becomes an invaluable productivity tool, if that’s your jam.


A kanban-style, list-making application.

By Tracy Proud, Psychotherapist (PACFA Accredited-Clin), Founder and Principal Therapist at Nest Psychotherapy & Counselling and The Relationship Retreat.

My favourite app is Trello.

As a practice owner, organisation is important, so what to do if you aren’t inherently organised like me? Get Trello! It allows you to create multiple to do lists with timelines, priority rating and you can add people and allocate tasks. The other great feature is you can use it on your phone or PC so you can add tasks and to-do lists whenever you think of them.


Take note of almost anything

By Amy Babish, MA, LPC, ATR-BC, a transformational leadership and relationship coach with over 20 years of expertise, including as a Mentor, Facilitator, licensed psychotherapist and credentialed art therapist. Amy guides change-makers, global leaders, Fortune 20 executives, entrepreneurs, justice builders, healers, and innovators to live with more meaning, impact, love, and success – creating massive ripple effects within their lives, organizations, and legacy.

My favourite app is Notes.

Notes App It is a game changer for organizing! From tracking dreams a la Jung and NLP to pre-planning my social media content to retreat planning to managing life as a single mama and entrepreneur or even recipe documentation, I love having everything in their cozy filling system saved in the cloud. Never losing papers again and saving the environment being paper free!

Amy will be offering The Relationship Course and you can learn more through Instagram and her newsletter.

Design Apps


Canva makes it easy to create professional designs and to share or print them.

By Michelle Seelig, Midlife Counsellor & Coach at The Livewell Playground.

My favourite app is CANVA.

Canva is a design app that is completely intuitive to use. I love that there are templates for everything you need in a private counselling practice and also the functionality to start a design from scratch if you have a more nuanced creative vision for something. I use it to tweak images, design social media posts and design resources for clients.

Photo & Video Editing Apps


A photo-editing application that enables users to enhance photos and apply digital filters

By Jenny Fisher, Art Therapist and Mentor for Transpersonal Art Therapists

My favourite app is Snapseed.

I use Snapseed for editing photos on my iPad, from basic touch ups like cropping and brightness to adding effects like drama or grunge and creating double exposures. It is so easy to use and can turn an ordinary photo into a shareable gem.


A simple, efficient video editing platform that suits you.

By Jodie Gale, Blog Author, Private Practice Business Coach, Clinical Supervisor and Eco-Psycho-Spiritual Psychotherapist for Women, Trauma & Disordered Eating.

One of my favourite apps is CapCut.

On of the many benefits to having a tech savvy 13 year old – she teaches me the latest apps for Instagram & TikTok! I use CapCut to edit, cut and join together several videos for my 15 Seconds of Nature Therapy Stories and Healing the Inner Child via Mother Earth REELS at Nature Therapy for the Soul.

Podcast, Transcription & Audio Editing Apps


Millions of shows. More ways to listen. Now we’re talking.

By Andrea Szász, Psychodynamic and Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, Clinical Supervisor and Associate Clinical Lecturer at the Sydney University’s Trauma-Informed Psychotherapy training. Andrea works online from a home office and in Bondi Junction, Sydney at her Brave Therapy™ headquarters.

My favourite app is saved so much time for me. It’s a transcribing software that has many user friendly capacities. I am a PhD student and generally an avid learner. Other than using for my research, I also use it to record my thoughts, or to make it easy to make notes for blogs or other writing, or when I watch psychotherapy webinars. The main feature I like that it almost understands my accent ????.

Mindfulness  & Affirmations Apps

I Am

By Dr Bethany Stroyde, Psychotherapist, Counsellor, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Clinical psychologist & Yoga Teacher. I use a mind-body approach to help adults improve their mental health, emotional well-being, and relationship with themselves and others. I also teach therapeutic yoga, both privately and in group classes.

My favourite app is Self-Compassion

The Self-Compassion app is a brilliant toolkit for learning about compassion and how to practice it in daily life. It has a step-by-step course as well as guided practices and nifty tools, such as tracking your heart rate variability, an indicator of mind-body wellbeing! I use it myself for maintaining a regular self-compassion practice, as well as highly recommending it to clients and colleagues.


Take control of your breathing and establish the natural rhythms of the body and mind.

By Santou Eve Carter, Psychotherapist · I work with loss & grief.

My favourite app is Pranayama.

Pranayama is the yogic practice of focusing on breath. The breath impacts the brain, the nervous system and mood regulation. I use Pranayama to teach clients about breathing slowly to help them with their mood management.

Serenity Guided Meditation

By Janice Williams, Mother-Daughter Counsellor & Coach. I work with Mother-Daughter Relationships.

The meditations are on the Serenity Guided Meditation App are different each day. The voice is gentle and calming and lowers stress. Most meditations are about 10 minutes, however, there longer ones if you prefer.

Insight Timer

Calm the mind, reduce anxiety, manage stress, sleep deeply and improve happiness.

By Karyna Jansons, Counsellor. I work with Anxiety, Depression, Major Life Transitions and General Concerns.

My favourite app is Insight Timer.

Insight Timer is a meditation/ mindfulness app, with a huge choice of guided meditations and mindfulness courses from a variety of techniques and perspectives, and the search options are extensive (even down to the voice, such as male or female voices which are great for those who may have suffered trauma and feel safer listening to one sex). You can also create your own timed meditation with different background music options and functions. Excellent if you’re wanting to begin a meditation or mindfulness practice!

Online Conferencing

By Jodie Gale, Blog Author, Private Practice Business Coach, Clinical Supervisor and Eco-Psycho-Spiritual Psychotherapist for Women, Trauma & Disordered Eating.

One of my favourite apps is ZOOM.

What would therapists around the world have done without ZOOM for the last 3 years? From seeing clients throughout the pandemic to recording podcast interviews to hosting live workshops – ZOOM is the must-have app for therapists.

Mental Health Apps

Dare: Anxiety and Panic Attacks

An evidence based training program to help people overcome anxiety, panic attacks, worry, and insomnia.

By Robyn Bean, Certified Practising Counsellor. I help overthinkers, perfectionists and highly sensitive people develop self compassion to deal with stress, uncertainty and anxiety. I especially welcome clients looking for a culturally sensitive therapist.

One of my favourite apps is Dare: Anxiety and Panic Attacks.

Dare is available in a free or paid version, this is like having a first aid kit in your pocket to access whenever anxiety strikes. It helps to re-set your relationship with anxiety through daily short talks and meditations, specific anxiety challenges, progress tracking, webinars, buddy groups, and guest masterclasses. The content covers many aspects of anxiety, including insomnia, worry, panic attacks, DP/DR, intrusive thoughts, health anxiety and more.

I love Headspace, it is a great app to use when you need time to unwind and chill. I use mine a few times per week and it is also good for clients.

How We Feel

Created by scientists, designers, engineers, and therapists to help people better understand their emotions and find strategies to help them navigate their emotions in the moment.

By Linda Zack, Counsellor. I work with complicated grief using Gestalt therapy.

My favourite app is How We Feel.

I love How We Feel as it is a great visual mood tracker which helps you to differentiate your mood and tracks with each occurrence the situation in which it arises.

Recovery Record

The world’s best tool for eating disorder management.

By Sarah Lee, Certified Eating Disorder Recovery Coach, focusing on the present and how to change eating disorder behaviors.

My favourite app is Recovery Record.

Recovery Record is an effective tool to help me stay connected to my clients who need more significant support and accountability with food and triggers, while developing better thought and emotional awareness. This app connects me to my clients in real-time as they safely log their meals and snacks, other environmental specifics, and how they feel. I can then support them on the platform or reach out via text in moments of need; moreover, when I want to acknowledge and praise them for achieving a preset goal or overcoming a challenge. The main feature I like most about Recovery Record is that it started as a food log app specifically for those with eating disorders and was designed to be sensitive to this population. Since the startup, Recovery Record has evolved and has all sorts of tools to help professionals like myself and our clients.

If you would like to hear more about eating disorder coaching, I interviewed Sarah here.

Self-Care Apps


Self-Care Bullet Journal with Goals, Mood Diary & Happiness Tracker.

By Sarah Cosway, Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. I help people to develop the tools to reclaim their lives by breaking free from the exhausting cycle of unwelcome thoughts and feelings that keep them stuck.

My favourite app is Daylio.

The Daylio APP is a self-care bullet journal with goals, mood diary & happiness tracker. It is visually beautiful and extremely easy to use, enabling you to keep a diary & capture your mood without writing a single word.


Experience a new era of science-backed music and unlock your best self on demand.

Registered Counsellor. I work with reframing midlife crisis for women.

My favourite app is Brain.FM

Brain.FM uses music which interacts with your brainwaves allowing you to focus, relax, and sleep better. This app allows me to stay focused on my work and studies without feeling fatigued.

Day 1 Journaling

The journal that redefines journaling. Discover how Day One allows you to capture life as you live it.

By Jen Simmons, Psychotherapist, LPC, PhD candidate. I work with self compassion, binge eating disorder, grief, loss and life transitions.

My favourite app is Day 1 Journaling.

The Day 1 Journaling app is wonderful because you can set reminders for journaling, it offers a journal prompt daily if you need it, as well as voice to text, or you can use a photo with your journal entry. It’s also password protected!

Social Media Apps


An image sharing and social media service designed to enable saving and discovery of information on the internet using images, and on a smaller scale, animated GIFs and videos, in the form of pinboards. 

By Miranda Egan, Psychotherapist. I work with specifically sexual assault and toxic relationships.

My favourite app is Pinterest.

Pinterest is an incredible resource full of quotes, symbols, and images that are helpful in giving language and hope in the therapy room. I invite clients to create their own boards to inspire them with a particular direction they want to go. This can be an alternative way of offering journaling and developing incite into a client’s journey. A picture tells 1000 words. 


By Karen Bieman, Registered Counsellor and Certified Trauma Recovery Coach. I work with Straight Spouse Betrayal Trauma.

One of my favourite apps is Facebook.

Love it or hate it, Facebook has absolutely helped me build my business. On my public page, I can schedule and share curated graphics, blog posts, and links to relevant articles with my own commentary. I love the ability to add a “send message” button to posts, as some followers don’t want to comment publicly. In my three private groups for straight spouses, I build the “know, like and trust factor” through more personal interactions. Weekly themes, resources, pre-recorded video and Facebook lives add value, while polls provide deeper insights. Members appreciate the anonymous posting option for sensitive questions and I love interacting with a warm audience where I can share my blogs and paid offers.


Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content and share it all with friends, family and the world.

By Sabrina Viramontes, Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I work with high-achieving students, athletes and professionals working in high-stress environments.

My favourite app is YouTube.

I use YouTube on a daily basis for personal and professional use. I love how you can find any topic on this app and find a community of people who enjoy the same things you do. I also love how I can share my favorite meditations and healing sounds with my clients!


A simple, fun & creative way to capture, edit & share photos, videos & messages with friends & family.

By Crystal Hardstaff. I work with perinatal mental health.

My favourite app is Instagram.

Many parents are lacking ‘the village’ and support network that is needed when raising children through the challenges that it brings. Using social media platforms like Instagram presents a modern and easy way to connect with parents frequently through posts and stories that are and educational and inspiring.


TikTok offers you real, interesting, and fun videos that will make your day.

by Dr. Morgan Levy Licensed psychologist. My niche is high-achievers looking to overcome burnout and perfectionism.

My favourite app is TikTok.

With all of the pressure we face to perform and be productive, I love TikTok because it’s FUN and it also allows us to learn from people all over the world and embrace the similarities that we have with a shared human experience.

Financial APPS


Easy to create invoices and track expenses. You can easily track every check, credit card and debit card purchase, and all your online payments in QuickBooks.

By Robin K. Schnitzler, Marriage and Family Therapist. I work with couples longing for greater connection and enormous love.

My favourite app is Quickbooks.

Quickbooks makes managing my private practice bookkeeping easy, quick, and seamless. Beyond the initial set up, I spend only a few minutes twice a week approving allocations for expenses and income. I love that you can automate the process, so I’m mainly just reviewing and marking, “yes, yes, yes; done!” On the reporting side, I can get an up-to-the-minute snapshot of my business financial picture at any time, day or night. A bonus is that I can give my accountant access to my books, for oversight and guidance.


You Need a Budget is a multi-platform personal budgeting program based on the envelope method.

By Melinda S. Schuster, Licensed Professional Counselor. My niche is online therapy for anxious or depressed adults who may also be survivors of trauma.

My favourite app is YNAB.

I use YNAB daily as I drink my morning coffee to help keep me focused on my financial goals, both personally and professionally. It’s very much like an electronic version of the envelope budgeting system, with four basic rules, incredibly entertaining support staff, and an entire community rooting for your success!

Relationship APPS

The Gottman Card Decks

This fun app offers helpful questions, statements, and ideas for improving your relationship.

By Michelle Scharlop, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I specialize in relationship struggles for couples; from dating to the brink of divorce, and individuals looking for relationship clarity.

My favourite app is The Gottman Card Decks.

The Gottman Card Decks is a free app that helps strengthen a relationship emotionally and intimately as you learn more about your partner. As a therapist, I share and explain all of the card decks to couples, do some love map questions in session and then they get to experience the creativity of the app together enhancing connection, romance and fun.

IFS Guide

BeFriending your Parts one tap at a time, anytime, anywhere!

Counsellor. My niche is in fertility, pregnancy, and grief and loss.

My favourite app is the IFS Guide.

The IFS Guide is a great app for people wanting to do some solo work with their parts. The app facilitates messaging with your Parts just like texting your friends and guides you step-by-step through getting to know and checking-in with your Parts. There’s also step-by-step guidance on unblending when needed.

Community APPS


Name: Karen Bieman, Registered Counsellor & Trauma Recovery Coach. I work with straight spouses who have, or had, a closeted LGBT partner.

One of my favourite apps is HeartBeat.

HeartBeat is a private community app that’s like a Facebook group but better! Features include video/voice chats, discussion threads, messages, match-ups, embedded video, groups, courses, events and more, all on my own domain with an android/apple app. I love the capacity to create a purpose-built, private, distraction-free space specifically designed to serve my community members.


Secure, real-time communication in one powerful push-to-talk (PTT) app. Works with iPhone, Android, and the web.

By Tamara Howell, Private Practice, Systems & Online Business Enthusiast at Practice with Tamara.

My favourite app is Voxer.

Voxer is a walkie talkie ap that I love to use for coaching. In laser focused 30 minute sprints, we talk and type simultaneously, covering twice as much as we would in a Zoom call. And for more spacious coaching, I love that working through voice notes means I can offer Voxer Office Hours, Voxer VIP days and Voxer groups without squishing too much into my day. I love the voice-to-text transcribe function and that I can keep all my colleague and coaching conversations in one app.



Etsy connects millions of buyers looking for an alternative – something special with a human touch, for those moments in life that deserve imagination.

By Jodie Gale, Blog Author, Private Practice Business Coach, Clinical Supervisor and Eco-Psycho-Spiritual Psychotherapist for Women, Trauma & Disordered Eating.

One of my favourite apps is ETSY.

Etsy started out as a global marketplace for unique and creative goods. It is now home to a universe of items, including resources for clients and therapists. I have owned an ETSY store for private practice downloadables and templates since 2020. I love the app to keep track of my sales and to communicate on the go with the therapists who purchase my forms. Once someone has purchased one of my blogging products, I send them a message inviting them to my Facebook group (Blog Your Way to Private Practice Success), where they can access support and share their blogs. I also use the app to purchase unusual items for my own business and to share shop creation ideas with my private practice coachees as a way of making an alternative income stream.

Books and Audio Books Apps


There’s nothing like having a new app that transforms how you use your local library. Borrow eBooks and eAudiobooks free from your library using our BorrowBox app.

By Nicky Angelone, Counsellor & Psychotherapist for anxiety, stress & overwhelm.

My favourite app is is BorrowBox.

I use BorrowBox as a free alternative to Audible, to listen to audiobooks from my local libraries. BorrowBox comes with me on my walks – it’s a good motivator to get outdoors and be active, as I can either stimulate my brain with some non-fiction, or escape into another world with fiction. You may also find me reading while driving, cleaning, and occasionally cooking.


Audible is the leading creator and provider of premium audio storytelling, enriching the lives of our millions of listeners every day.

By Lila Braida, Marriage and Family Therapist working with attachment trauma.

My favourite app is Audible.

Many of my clients ask me how they can learn more, but don’t have time to sit and read the books I recommend. Audible allows me to share my best resources with clients through a more accessible format.


The world’s largest site for readers and book recommendations. Our mission is to help people find and share books they love.

By Sharon Martin, LCSW, psychotherapist and author of The CBT Workbook for Perfectionism and The Better Boundaries Workbook.

My favourite app is GoodReads.

I love to read—both fiction and self-help books. The GoodReads app is a great way to keep track of all the books I want to read and get recommendations from friends and colleagues. It’s also a convenient way to read reviews of the books I’ve authored and get feedback from readers!

Online Courses, Training and Resources Apps

Learn+ by ThriveCart

Create high-converting cart pages, funnels, affiliate campaigns, courses and more.

By Jodie Gale. Blog Author, Private Practice Business Coach, Clinical Supervisor and Eco-Psycho-Spiritual Psychotherapist for Women, Trauma & Disordered Eating.

One of my favourite apps is Learn+.

Over the last 5 or so years I have used almost every online course platform there is – Udemy, Domestika, Tiny Buddha, Podia, Zur, LearnDash, Mighty Networks, Thinkific and Kajabi – just to name a few! So, when it came time to purchase a subscription for my own online courses for Trauma Warriors™️ and The Psychosynthesis Centre, I couldn’t go past this amazing lifetime deal with ThriveCart Learn+. Most online course platforms charge a monthly subscription between US$39-$150 a month-that’s why I couldn’t go past Learn+ as it is a one off payment of US$495-$650. ThriveCart are constantly adding new features to this new platform. The best thing is, it comes with all of the usual ThriveCart eCommerce features included.

Feel free to use my affiliate link direct from this page to purchase (i.e don’t save the link or navigate away from their sales pages). Once you become a Learnt+ owner, you can also request to become an affiliate! Two or so referrals and it’s paid for your new online course platform 🙂 How great is that?! Hurry before their offer runs out.

By Minky van der Walt, Registered Music Therapist, Registered Guided Imagery and Music therapist, Psychotherapist and Supervisor. I support people to recover from trauma and am passionate about helping therapists and health professionals to keep doing the work they love without burning out.

By Monique Felton, Counsellor and Psychotherapist working with couples and families, confidence and self-esteem, life transitions and life after injury.

Psychwire is a great resource for training and courses, worksheets and free client resources. It covers a range of different modalities and frameworks and is evidence based and links to the leading experts in different counselling and psychological frameworks.

Music Apps


Identify songs around you on the go.

By Jodie Gale, Blog Author, Private Practice Business Coach, Clinical Supervisor and Eco-Psycho-Spiritual Psychotherapist for Women, Trauma & Disordered Eating.

One of my favourite apps is Shazam.

I use Shazam to identify songs to use on my Instagram Stories and REELS. I also LOVE that it has Top 200 lists which means that if I use one of these songs, #tag the name of the song on the story or reel, there is a greater chance of it being viewed. You can see how I used one of last year’s biggest hits about loneliness here.


Play millions of songs and podcasts on your device.

By Minky van der Walt, Registered Music Therapist, Registered Guided Imagery and Music therapist, Psychotherapist and Supervisor. I provide therapy, supervision & professional learning for counsellors and allied health. I’m passionate about helping therapists and health professionals to keep doing the work they love without burning out.

One of my favourite apps is Spotify.

This app is my life blood as a therapist who uses music listening every day! I love that I can create playlists, can look for different performances of the same piece, that it makes recommendations and, possibly best of all, that I can send the music to clients so that they can access the music as a resource and support in between sessions.

Nature Apps


Use the power of image recognition technology to identify the plants and animals all around you.

By Garthine Walker, Psychotherapist. I provide relational integrative psychotherapy for adults; specialisms in complex trauma, ADHD and maladaptive/chronic daydreaming.

My favourite app is Seek.

When I go for a walk or pop into the garden for a few minutes to clear my mind between clients, the Seek app is a fun way to focus on the awe-inspiring natural world around me. It helps me to notice what I am seeing in the moment (plants, trees, birds, animals, insects, fungi, etc), educates me, and builds up a great photo collection. You can have fun with it too: it correctly identified my miniature Schnauzer as first a mammal, then a carnivoran, and finally a ‘domestic dog’!

Health Apps


Global Workouts. Stunning, sandy beaches. Gorgeous nature trails. Serene mountain villages. iFit traveled the world to bring you the most exciting workout locations.

By Tracey Mansted, Psychotherapist. I work with girls, teens and women only using trauma informed psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

My favourite app is iFit.

iFit is a gym/yoga studio/personal trainer all in one. I use it in conjunction with my NordicTrack Treadmill but you can also sync it with the studio bike, rowing machine or use the app on its own for meditation, yoga or cooking classes! I really love the world travel, outdoor training series, and am currently on a 24 workout trekking series through the Swiss Alps. My morning workout sets me up for my psychotherapy day.

Feel Better

Championing a 360 approach to wellness across plant-based recipes, exercise, mindfulness and sleep, the feel better app helps you discover simple, effective ways to improve your health.

By Dr Bethany Stroyde, Clinical psychologist & Yoga Teacher. I use a mind-body approach to help adults improve their mental health, emotional well-being, and relationship with themselves and others. I also teach therapeutic yoga, both privately and in group classes.

My favourite app is Feel Better.

Feel Better is a comprehensive app for all-round wellness that I use on a regular basis. Originally just for plant-based recipes, it now includes a library of movement practices, meditations, sleep support, and articles with advice on general wellness. With so many tasty choices, I’d recommend it for the recipes alone!

Happy Cow

Moo-ve forward together. The largest vegan community and food map.

By Robyn Bean, Certified Practising Counsellor. I help overthinkers, perfectionists and highly sensitive people develop self compassion to deal with stress, uncertainty and anxiety. I especially welcome clients looking for a culturally sensitive therapist.

One of my favourite apps is Happy Cow.

I use this app to find options that suit the needs of a family with differing dietary requirements and preferences.

Whether you’re new to plant-based eating and want to learn what’s available in your area, or you’re travelling somewhere new for a conference or holiday, this app is a helpful tool. A small one-off fee unlocks premium features such as filters, favourites and trip lists.

Online Client Management System Apps


The all-in-one platform for small to medium providers featuring an online booking system, online forms, budget tracking and invoicing, and more making it delightful!

By Kate Mungoven, Registered counsellor. I work with perinatal and motherhood.

My favourite app is Splose.

Splose is an online client management system, developed for allied health and I use it for my bookings, case notes, wait listing and invoicing. I love how user friendly it is, simple to set up and customise – as well as the very responsive customer help – it has streamlined my weekly admin and frees me up to focus on the more interesting parts of private practice.

This type of blog is called a round-up blog. If you would like to blog your way to private practice success, you can get the blogging prompts here.
