About Us

VISION

Increase productivity, company profitability and performance and decrease presenteeism and absenteeism, by providing personalised interventions for better corporate and personal wellbeing.

MISSION

Become the preferred mHealth app for workplace health-promotion programmes internationally, by improving wellbeing, self-care, occupational culture, and corporate profitability.

PHILOSOPHY

Mind and body are inseparable. At Guardian Angel we conceptualize what it means to be a healthy person from a holistic perspective. Our interventions reflect the emphasis that we place on all aspects of human health.

We offer our Healthometer as a convenient, easily accessible tool that each individual can use to assess his/her own overall physical and psychological health, and then suggest individualized intervention strategies. Our diverse team of highly qualified professionals views each person with compassion and empathy. We have designed our application very much in that spirit, believing that all persons want to live meaningful lives and can overcome many of the challenges they face. As healthcare professionals, we adjust our approach to our clients’ specific needs and circumstances. In each instance we ask ourselves, “What is the best thing that we can do for our client?” That question serves as the guiding principle of our interactive application and reflects our person-centered orientation.

Lifestyle interventions are pivotal in reducing the risk of chronic diseases, which pose a significant economic burden on healthcare systems, utilising 10 to 20% of the GDP of western countries. At least 80% of cardiovascular disease, stroke and type II diabetes and over 40% of cancer incidents would be prevented if known risk factors were eliminated, such as unhealthy diet, smoking, sedentary lifestyle and stress.

In addition, the Guardian Angel (GA) workplace health-promotion programme will be customised for each potential corporate client to boost the wellbeing and self-care of their employees, encourage organisational compassion and improve overall the corporate culture.
