For example there is the I CAN app that states "High stress levels can worsen the symptoms of anxiety – that’s why stress management techniques like meditation are often recommended for people with anxiety. The Anxiety Free app uses self-hypnosis techniques to help lessen stress and quell feelings of anxiousness. The guided lessons developed by Donald Mackinnon are each 90 minutes long."
Another free one is HelloMind and they explain that:
"When you suffer from anxiety, you can feel tied down by your constant thoughts of worry and dread. HelloMind attempts to help users loosen these constraints. It does this with guided relaxation audios. The guided exercises focus on anxiety, fears and phobias, and confidence, among other things. You can even earn points for listening, and journal your feelings in a log."
What up? is another free app:
"Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) involves learning more about how you think and how your thoughts affect your emotions. In anxiety management, it can mean the difference between having a panic attack and rationally approaching your fear and worry with a clear head. This app uses CBT to train anxiety sufferers how to identify negative thinking patterns and the sources of their anxiety. It features breathing techniques, habit and anxiety trackers, positive quotes, forums, and even a game."
