we're building something new...
personalised mental wellbeing support to help you rebuild after trauma
Available in Summer 2021
If your mental wellbeing has been impacted by trauma, you are not alone.
We understand that the experience of trauma can turn your world upside down.
The physical & emotional effects may leave you feeling like you've lost your sense of who you are & like your life is out of control. This can make day-to-day life & seemingly routine tasks extremely difficult.
It's okay, we're here to help you.
We're building a smart mental wellbeing app designed to help you rebuild & learn to manage your day-to-day mental wellbeing after trauma.
We're working with people who have lived experience of trauma, clinical experts & academic research every step of the way.
How does it work?
The app will empower you to understand how your individual beliefs, behaviours & emotions influence each other, to help you gain a better sense of self, self-belief & feeling of control. It integrates your personal attributes & inputs with evidence-based approaches such as psychotherapy & positive psychology to help you adapt your mindset & build healthy habits.
Track your daily moods & note events or situations that influence them
Get personalised nudges & recommendations to help you through the difficult moments & hard days
Capture the moments you're grateful for & what you've achieved
Understand what positively & negatively influences your happiness & wellbeing
See your progress over time & identify any patterns in your wellbeing
Access reliable articles to help you better understand your wellbeing & get signposted to further resources
I was caught up in the London Bridge and Borough Market terror attack in 2017. The experience had a severe impact on my daily life as I struggled with the effects of the trauma, what felt like every minute of every day. There wasn’t a corner of my life that wasn’t impacted by what I was going through and my life felt completely out of control. I didn’t know who I was anymore.
Accessing support wasn’t easy, I was lucky to afford private therapy & later found support from a specialist charity. Outside of the therapy room, it was hard to find other means of effective support & there weren’t any suitable digital tools available to help me. It has been a difficult journey to rediscover my sense of self, what my new normal looks like & to learn how to manage my mental wellbeing.
Professionally, I've worked in technology for seven years. I've led numerous projects, working closely with people to translate their needs into technology requirements & alongside developers to build an effective solution. Now I’m in a better place, I'm fusing my personal experiences & professional skills to work with others who have lived experience of trauma as well as clinical & technical experts to create a meaningful form of support for people “like me” who have been impacted by trauma.
