About us

We want to live in a more pleasant and healthier society, where stress does not negatively impact our lives, but instead helps to activate and motivate people.

We have a dedicated team – consisting of coaches, psychologists, social designers, connectors and experience experts – that pioneers and implements innovative methods in addressing mental health.

With enthusiasm and ambition, we have developed a philosophy that can be used in the workplace and in classrooms. But also by a large variety of coaches. Bringing people together while sharing inspiration and practical tips, aiming to collectively enhance mental well-being.
