The Importance of Proof

When you are unwell you don’t just want to know that the medication will work for the majority of people. You want to know if it will work for you.

This is even more complex when talking about psychology. There is no one size fits all Self plan. We are all different. All our ‘Self’s need to be nurtured in different ways. This is most clear in mental health. The best antidepressant drugs only work for 60% of the population. The job of a therapist is not to prescribe but to discover what works for you and how you can build that into your life.

This is why Psychology is complex.

But we now live in a time where we can use Artificial Intelligence to identify patterns in huge quantities of data. We can start to look at people as individuals rather than segments or populations. With enough people and enough data we can start understanding how each our Self’s are made up.

At HelloSelf we will obsess about efficacy and personalisation. We want to help you find what WORKS FOR YOU… what helps you be your best Self.

We call this Your Science of Self.

This is why we are not just a group of developers, but Clinicians, Academics, Philosophers, Psychologists, Neurologists… and people with a diverse viewpoint and experience of mental health and self improvement.

We are at the beginning of our journey but we will work tirelessly for you and your Self.

Thank you.
