Science meets design

Mindable combines the evidence-based treatment and great design in order to support the treatment of anxiety.

Focus on Panic Disorder and Agoraphobia

Our focus is on the treatment of Panic Disorder and Agoraphobia, a form of anxiety disorder. People with panic disorder often experience nuermous panic attacks and over time become more and more afraid to leave their home, visit crowded places, or go by bus, train or plane alone. 

This is exactly where Mindable comes in. Our app helps these people to recognise, understand and deal with their fears. Learning lessons, reflections and hands-on exercises help users understand how their panic attacks come together and how they can overcome their fears in the long-term to finally enjoy their lives again.

Developed on a scientific basis

Our content is based on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), whose effectiveness regarding panic and anxiety disorders has been confirmed in numerous studies [1] [2]. In CBT, the focus is primarily on awareness of one’s own thoughts and behaviours and how they affect us. In contrast to other therapies, the causes are not sought in conversations about the past, but treated with current behaviours. 

We work closely together with the Christoph-Dornier-Foundation for Clinical Psychology and the therapist Dr. Thomas Lang. His treatment manual forms the basis of our treatment plan.

Focus on User Experience design

In addition to the scientific content, we care a lot about usability and user experience. It is important for us to support our users by providing content that is intuitive to understand and therefore easy to use.
