Fear Nix is an app that is targeted at helping people who are suffering from anxiety to identify the fear or skill with which they would like to make a change.
The next step is to create a hierarchy of events/situations that are least to most anxiety provoking. After that has been established, the person is now encouraged to go out into the world and expose himself to certain situations or situations that trigger anxious thoughts. This process is monitored through continuous logging. The final step is to examine your efforts and think about which coping strategy was the most helpful and rate the level of anxiety, with the goal that it is now lower.
Fear Nix taps into true Cognitive Behavioral Therapeutic techniques and strategies in a systematic approach. This app is best geared for adolescents and adults versus children, unless the parent is setting the steps and monitoring the progress. This app is also not one to be used in the moment of high anxiety but rather with pre-planning and setting of goals in advance and then working on them in an effortful way.
As a psychologist in private practice, I would recommend this app to adolescents and adults suffering from anxiety in order to provide them with repeated and consistent exposure and effortful thought about the sources of their anxiety in between sessions.
