"What is Daylight?"
Daylight is a fully automated digital worry and anxiety improvement programme based on cognitive behavioral techniques.
While often initially triggered by a stressful life event, worry and anxiety is maintained by unhelpful behaviors and thoughts. Daylight targets these unhelpful behaviors and thoughts using evidence-based cognitive and behavioral interventions. Reducing these unhelpful behaviors and thoughts leads to a reduction in worry and anxiety symptoms.
In the programme, a virtual therapist will teach you four scientifically backed techniques to reduce worry and anxiety symptoms.
You will learn these four techniques in four main sessions (approximately 10 to 20 minutes in length). After learning each technique, you will be offered shorter (i.e., 5 minutes) practice versions of the technique, or you can repeat the main session to review a technique. After completion of a main session, the next main session for a technique is immediately available.
