Lumi Nova: Tales of Courage is an engaging child-led, parent/guardian supported therapeutic intervention that can be used on most smartphones or tablets.
It facilitates graded exposures (the active ingredient of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) with psychoeducation to empower 7-12 year olds with mild to moderate needs to learn to self-manage fears, worries and anxiety.
It is practical, age appropriate, non-stigmatising, encourages self management and provides user progress and health outcomes data in real time to authorised professionals.

Lumi Nova does not require constant clinical supervision.
Lumi Nova is designed to help children and young people with mild to moderate levels of anxiety. If your child struggles with worry, they may seem to fear the worst in specific situations, they may lack the confidence to cope with new challenges in those situations, and they may even often complain of tummy aches, muscle aches, or headaches in response to a specific worry.
Lumi Nova is not suitable to help children or young people with complex needs or whose generalised worry prevents them from participating in most day-to-day activities. It is not designed to help young people in crisis.
