People can receive guidance and inspirational quotes from a new therapy app

People who sell a mobile phone over the coming weeks and months may find they have an option not only to replace the handset they have lost but to add a virtual therapist to their lives.

Those who splash out on an Apple iPhone will find there is now an app available for the revolutionary device that can help to soothe the soul.

The tool, named Awareness, works by offering tips and advice on how to remain psychologically strong and switched on.

"It's a next-generation application which is more interactive and brings it back to the self, rather than just playing a game ... and it's hitting a chord with people," says developer and psychologist Ronit Herzfeld.

There is speculation the app could soon be rolled out to Google's Android platform, allowing consumers with HTC, Sony Ericsson and Samsung models the chance to download it.

Apple's iPhone 4 was released in the UK in June, with another model due to follow in the future.
