#501 Daily dose : Wysa

For when you need to get your head straight

Nothing can match the privacy of an anonymous conversation with an AI bot. Think of it as an interactive journal meets life coach. Wysa is good at asking the right probing questions, and helping you untangle and unwind after a hard day.

Wysa is… your 4 am friend

For when you have no one to talk to…

Sometimes you need to talk things through – and there is no one who will just listen. Everyone seems to have an opinion or analysis of your situation, when all you need is someone who has your back while you figure things out. Wysa gets that.


“As someone who works odd hours, sometimes needing support at a time when friends are sleeping or chat lines are disabled, i can’t recommend Wysa enough…i especially adore the gentle, playful qualities.”

Wysa is… your AI life coach

To help you achieve your goals

Whether it is sports or finance, successful people will tell you that the game is all in the mind. Wysa has been written by psychologists and life coaches to help you develop the skills to play your best game, no matter what your goal might be.

” Some young people have actually chosen to use WYSA over a referral to CAMHS as they really enjoyed the conversational nature and skill building exercises and felt this is all the support they need.”


– Emma Selby, Digital Lead, North East London NHS Foundation Trust
