Our mission

PSYT exists to help individuals live happy, fulfilling and productive lives. We believe that large-scale, positive change begins with improving the well-being of individuals. To achieve this, we enable people to understand and get the best out of themselves and others - at home, at work, at school, and beyond.

Since much of our life is spent at work, PSYT collaborates with both individuals and organisations to promote well-being that is

mutually beneficial. PSYT also works with leading academics at the forefront of research. We provide innovative technology that allows researchers to use state-of-the-art research designs to capture data.

PSYT continues to learn from the individuals, researchers, and organisations we work with in order to create original and exciting ways to improve the lives of others.
