Description

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. --------------------------------- OVERVIEW 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. FEATURES 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. Word Maker 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 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.

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. http://calmkeeperapp.com/

    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.
  • Amazing for dealing with panic attacks

    Worth every penny. I don't normally review things but I had to for this because it's literally the only app out there that helps you THROUGH panic attacks when they happen and aren't just preventative. It gives you something to focus on and has tools to help you breathe easier. Overall it's just a great app for those that suffer from panic disorder.
  • Amazing.

    I have GAD and have to take Ativan if my anxiety turns into an attack. I just used this app and was able to control the attack WITHOUT medication! I would like to make a suggestion to the developers. Can you program Siri to pull up the App by saying "I am having a panic attack". The App could auto load to a screen that give an affirmation. Sometimes my attacks are so strong I am almost paralyzed. It would help if the App could be voice activated. Thanks for all you have done to help us.
  • Thank you thank you thank you

    Whoever created this, ACTUALLY understands panic. Distractions that you don't realize are distractions are perfect. Praise God for this app. Thank you!

    This is the only app I've seen built for managing panic as it is happening. When I am on the cusp of an attack (or right in the middle of one) this is where I turn to come back down. There's not really any fancy bells and whistles, no overwhelming list of unnecessary features- it's just what you need, when you need it. For less than the cost of a burrito. You can't lose.
  • 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.

    This app is truly brilliant and works quite well, however the feature that I find works best for me, wordmaker, has stopped working and loads endlessly. Please fix this!
  • This App is a lifesaver!!!

    This app is a life saver. It has come in handy in so many situations when I feel my anxiety getting out of control. The guided breathing with the orb is my favourite along with the matching game. Truly a fantastic app; I have recommended it to my psychiatrist because I feel so strongly about it. I'm so thankful for the creators of it.

    When I'm in a full-blow panic attack, this app helps bring me back down to earth. I can't thank the creators enough. Side note: I cannot get the last tool (word creator) to work. It just says it's loading, but nothing ever loads.
