The ShinyMind app is a uniquely interactive mindset resource that improves wellbeing, resilience and teamwork. It’s proven to help reduce the stress and anxiety of everyday life leaving people feeling happier and more productive.
The app’s foundation is built on a blend of science and research carried out by our leadership psychotherapists into what improves resilience, teamwork and performance and ultimately sees organisations perform better.
So how did we do it? We worked with people in some of the most stressful jobs – in the NHS – to understand what they need to feel and perform at their best. Together we built a mindset methodology to help people think more positively, feel more motivated and wrapped it all up in the ShinyMind app – giving people the support they need when they want it, so they can Shine.
The ShinyMind app is a uniquely interactive mindset app that builds resilience, wellbeing and teamwork.
Not just mental health, more than meditation and beyond helping you sleep – although we’ve covered that too, it’s grounded in evidence, science and research equipping your people to thrive by changing the way they think. It helps build teamwork, morale and mutual support with its positive messaging and community functions, as well as being a confidential, safe space.
It’s a fact that we spend more time learning to drive than we do learning how to think and use our mind. Our relationship with our mind is the single most important relationship any of us will ever have. It affects every relationship and interaction we will have in our lifetime and that’s at work and at home.

We all love learning about ourselves and in a busy world you need to make sure your time is spent well, which why we’ve provided the science behind every activity.
Interactive Masterclass exercises build a personalised resource as you interact with the app to guide self-exploration, stimulate learning, self-awareness, reflection and growth.
Over 100 exercises to choose from, including;
“I look at things in a different way, a more positive way”
“It has given me the understanding that I am strong, I matter.”
“It’s a hug in an app!”
"I have a more forgiving attitude to myself – I am doing the best I can which helps me stay motivated and be more productive."
“Just wanted to thank you for the access to the ShinyMind app- it really is invaluable and helped me to stay connected to my ‘wonderment’ and I even got me a promotion!”
"It’s really difficult to quantify how helpful I find the ShinyMind app. If I thought it was great previously..... it has been invaluable during COVID. I can dip in any time and find something that appeals or helps me ground and rebalance and find some quiet space in my mind. I’m not sure what I expected from the App having not used something like this before but I find myself using it frequently and it makes me smile. I love telling colleagues about to so they can get it too and I have noticed that I have started to be kinder to myself and less critical."
"I feel as though a weight has been lifted"
"I cannot overestimate how fantastic the app is. I don’t have enough superlatives!! I love the masterclasses, breathing and the meditations. The resilience masterclass as well as ones about relationships and stress have been so useful during COVID enabling me to connect differently and positively when many of my colleagues are going through stressful times. I find the Daily Shines a great way of thinking about the really good stuff in my life rather than sometimes feeling stressed about the negative impact of COVID."
The ShinyMind app was recognised by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) as an example of ‘outstanding practice’.
