Self-Therapy Journey Launch

Self-TherapyJourneyLogoI am thrilled to announce that, after three years of work, Self-Therapy Journey launched on January 20, 2014. Self-Therapy Journey (STJ) is a powerful web application that allows you to explore and resolve psychological issues that are causing you difficulties. It is the first of its kind—a general purpose web application for psychological exploration and healing.

What can you do?

  • Resolve problems like procrastination or shyness
  • Transform behavior patterns, like dependency or people-pleasing
  • Navigate through your defenses
  • Heal your emotional wounds
  • Create a complete psychological profile for yourself

How does it work?

  • Do guided meditations for deep exploration
  • Generate a customized report for each pattern of yours
  • Create homework practices
  • Transform problems into healthy capacities
  • Track your progress

You can develop the healthy attitudes and behavior to live the life you have dreamed of.

All for a small fraction of what psychotherapy costs.

STJ is not intended to be a substitute for psychotherapy or counseling. You can think of it as a very sophisticated and interactive set of self-help books, plus guided meditations and customized reports. It is based on the Pattern System and Internal Family Systems Therapy. Though STJ can be used by the general public without guidance from a therapist, it is also a powerful adjunct to psychotherapy, especially IFS therapy.

You can try it out for free for two days. Go to

Help Us Fix Problems

Despite having done extensive testing with STJ, this is our initial launch, so there are bound to be some problems that we didn’t catch. Please give us feedback on whatever bugs or other difficulties that you notice. Use the Feedback tab on the left edge of pages.

We are also interested in suggestions for how to improve STJ, or anything else you want to say. If you love STJ, we would appreciate your sending in a testimonial that we can put on the website.

What People are Saying

Self-Therapy Journey is brilliant. It’s been an absolutely great experience to use it. I have done IFS in a phone situation in the class with Jay, who is one of the best at it, and this online system comes darn close. It covers all the bases. Every time I had a thought like, “What about this?” there was something in the online system to handle it. It’s complete. It covers every nook and cranny of what will occur with the pattern, what it’s like to live inside it, and what it takes to live a different way. That part of it is brilliant.

I think Self-Therapy Journey is immensely helpful. I have people who are waiting to hear the report on what I learned next! I’m looking forward to being able to use it with clients. The interconnectedness and the depth of the exploration is quite something! I’m impressed with the comprehensiveness of the system. You can go as deep as you’re willing or want to go. It’s perpetually useful.
— Elizabeth Moulton , Clinical Psychologist

The problems that I worked on using Self-Therapy Journey have been resolved. It’s a really nice way to work by yourself and get clear and connect the dots about something you want to change. It helped to bring my issue to the program and strategize about the behavior I wanted to be different. I find it hard to be in therapy or a group, so I liked the idea of doing it on my own in this format. I love the Pattern System. I can’t wait until the book on it comes out. The Pattern System has jump-started a lot of my clients in understanding their issues at the beginning of their work. People really do like maps of what is going on inside.
