Warning: if you feel you need urgent help, please consult your local GP, A&E department, or call Samaritans for free on 116 123, if you feel you want to talk to someone now.




Mental Health Assessment

Start with the simple assessment of your mood or anxiety. We have created the tool based on the NHS recommend mood and anxiety screening techniques. Please note that while this tool aims to help you understand and manage some of the symptoms you might be experiencing, we recommend speaking with a professional to assess any areas of significant discomfort.


Mental Health Tracker

Get access to your daily mood reports. After a while you can track your mood patterns as part of your journal.



Tracking your moods can help you to work out what makes you feel better or worse. You can then take steps to avoid, change or prepare for difficult situations. You can create your own mood diary on the MoodWave and share it with your doctor or therapist.


Path to Mindfulness

Practice being more present in the moment for improved focus and calm, even on hectic days. That is the key function of the MoodWave where we aim to share content, videos and music to help you achieve just that.


Share with your Therapist

You can share your reports or the mood diary with your therapist, friend or family.


Directory – coming soon

We are working on adding a wellness directory which will help you locate a therapist, psychologist, health and wellness group, yoga class, spa, and many others. If you would like to join our directory, please contact us for more information.

Improving Your Mental Health

Taking care of your mental fitness is as important as taking care of your body. Mental fitness means keeping your brain and emotional health in a great shape. Good mental health means being generally able to think, feel and react in the ways you need and want to live your life. But if you go through a period of poor mental health, you might find the ways you're frequently thinking, feeling or reacting become difficult, or even impossible, to cope with. This can feel just as bad as a physical illness, or even worse. Most people know someone who has experienced a mental health problem. It can happen to all kinds of people from all walks of life. And it's likely that when you find a combination of self-care, treatment and support that works for you, you will get better. Much as you need specific physical exercises and movements to build bodily strength, agility, and resilience – you can also benefit from mental exercises, or practices – to strengthen your mind, mental performance, and well-being.
In essence, mindfulness is the psychological process of bringing attention to the present moment, in a non-judgemental way. Does that mean the perfect mindfulness practitioner is fully present, with non-judgmental awareness in every single moment? Well yes, but if you could achieve that, chances are you wouldn’t be human, and your name might be Siri or Alexa. This is because our minds naturally wander. In fact, some people at The Harvard Medical School studied this, and found that our minds wander around 47% of our conscious time. So, on average, for half of our waking lives our minds are wandering – ruminating over thoughts, things that have already happened in the past, and might happen in the future. If left unchecked, this can cause psychological difficulties, including anxiety and depression.
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a scientifically based form of therapy, that can help you manage your problems, by changing the way you think and behave. It's most commonly used to treat anxiety and depression but can be useful for other mental and physical health issues. CBT is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations, and actions are interconnected, and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a vicious cycle. CBT aims to help you deal with overwhelming problems in a more positive way, by breaking them down into smaller parts, and tracking them along with your goals. Unlike some other psychological treatments, CBT deals with your current problems, rather than focusing on issues from your past. MoodWave aims to help you break down issues into a daily diary, supported by self-meditation and structured insight articles. The app is a superb way to enhance CBT therapy.

MoodWave is a useful therapy resource and mood screening application for psychologists, therapists and MDs.
