We are on a journey to enable individuals to become balanced humans

Our Vision  

Imagine a world where every human has a positive social impact. Our vision is to enable individuals to evolve into balanced humans that will take care of themselves and each other. This will contribute to a reinforcing and caring society.

Our Mission

We founded Oyama based on our personal experiences and challenges with accessing mental health care when we or our loved ones needed it  the most.
We believe psychotherapy is a resource that everyone should have in their pocket in order to understand themselves better and in order to help them cope with life crises.
Therefore, we’ve embarked on a journey to provide you with these evidence-based tools. We are on a mission to guide individuals to become balanced humans.

Our Values

EmpathyWe passionately believe in helping on another by trying to set ourselves in the other person’s shoes
Genuineness/authenticity The world needs more real stuff
Transparency & no bullshitOur culture is very straightforward and we believe in radical transparency. We want to avoid misunderstandings simply by speaking about how things really are.
