Brain in Hand is a unique support system. Originally developed by the Clinical Director of the Southampton Autism Diagnostic Research Centre, Brain in Hand is based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, the award-winning system has been independently proven to help reduce anxiety and improve independence. It includes three main parts:

Personal plan Over one or two sessions, one of our trainers will work with you to set-up the Brain in Hand app and website system in the way that’s best suited to your needs. They will work with you to identify the practical solutions that will help overcome the challenges you face in day to day life and achieve your goals.

Self-management From our app on your phone, you can quickly find your best coping strategies for issues that cause you problems, access your diary, receive prompts for things you need to remember, and use our in-built anxiety monitor.

Unlimited support team What sets Brain in Hand apart is the team of professionals. They keep an eye on your anxiety monitor and get in touch when you need extra help by text or a call; helping you to solve problems that initially you can’t fix yourself.

ORCHA advises governments, NHS Digital and CCGs on health apps. It is home to the world’s largest library of health app reviews. ORCHA gave Brain in Hand the highest rating amongst mental health apps. Take a look at its interview with us, explaining Brain in Hand.

  • Brain in Hand has helped me to solve all sorts of problems by myself, which has really built my confidence. For example, I have an issue with eye contact when I talk with friends. To solve this, I plan in advance what I can say to a person, which is something I put into my Brain in Hand.

  • I wish that there had been something like this when I was a headteacher of a challenging school for those individuals who were either autistic or suffered from anxiety. It would have added another level of support.
