What is WYSA?
Sometimes we get tangled inside our heads, unable to move on. Over 400,000 people now talk to Wysa about what’s holding them back - it’s anonymous, helpful, and will never judge.
Wysa is your 4am friend meets life coach meets mood journal. It is an AI-based ‘emotionally intelligent’ bot, a virtual coach which responds to the emotions you express and uses evidence-based cognitive-behavioural techniques (CBT), DBT, meditation, breathing, yoga, motivational interviewing and micro-actions to help you build mental resilience skills and feel better.
Wysa is especially effective with adolescents – it is the top recommended app by the NELFT (NHS’s largest CAMH Trust) for those who don’t meet the therapeutic threshold. They find that many young people choose to use WYSA over a referral to CAMHS as they really enjoyed the conversational nature and skills building exercises and felt this is all the support they need.
For many, Wysa is enough. If not, A Wysa (human) Coach can provide unlimited messaging support for as little as 15 GBP a month. The combination allows mental health skills and emotional resilience training to reach people far earlier than therapy would.
