The Self-Investigation is an initiative that provides a variety of solutions aimed at improving journalists’ wellbeing. It is led by multi-lingual coaches and trainers with five decades of media experience combined.

Our courses use evidence-based practices so journalists can relate to stress and digital overload in a healthier way. We also strive to support managers and under-served groups such as freelancers and women.

We have already trained more than 260 journalists on four continents in response to the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our services include stress management courses, digital wellness training and one-on-one coaching.
