The team is collecting user feedback and designing a new prototype

We design digital self-help tools to increase people's social comfort and mental health. Our first product is called Steps and was launched in February 2017.

We give people tools to increase their social comfort, so our users can achieve the goals they dream of, whether it is to ask someone out on a date, present in front of an audience or being comfortable looking other people in the eyes.

We live in a world focused on extroversion and being a success in all areas of life, however many experience discomfort in social situations and therefore avoid them making it even harder to do it in the future. To fear social interactions is a big taboo which again makes people more sad and a bad spiral has started.

But it does not have to be so hard to practise social comfort. Steps is based on exposure therapy, a well proven psychological method to work towards they things you want to be able to do, and overcome the fears.

OUR PRODUCT

Based on principles from exposure therapy Steps helps users work on their social goals.

The common theme for our products are that they get the users to act out in the real world. Our most known product is the Steps app for iOS, which is free in the app store. We present the users to small challenges in areas such as; ‘Friendship’, ‘Working Life’, ‘Rejection’ etc. The user picks the challenges that fits them and their needs, this helps them realize the things they want to be able to do. More than 60.000 have downloaded Steps for iOS already.

Besides are app we are working on other prototypes such as messenger bots, where we test our newest functionality.
