Facilitate personally meaningful experiences
Mental health treatment is facing a paradigm shift away from symptom alleviation towards therapies that put individual experience at the centre.
Our purpose is to help facilitate personally meaningful experiences to improve mental health and well-being.
Wavepaths is founded on the fundamental insight that our ways of being in this world, our ways of relating to ourselves and others, are continuously shaped by our life experiences.
We work to develop a new category of therapeutic tools: Experience as Medicine – integrating psychedelic science, machine learning, music theory, psychotherapies and experience design, in collaboration with artists, therapists and researchers.
“Western medicine has historically seen mental health treatment through the lens of symptom alleviation, whether through talk therapies or pharmacotherapy. There is a blindspot at the core of this approach, where the patient can be found. The implicit assumption underlying, that healing is externally as opposed to internally driven, can undermine a sense of agency that is essential for recovery. This experience in itself can be pathologising. Luckily things are changing. Wavepaths works with practitioners at the forefront of person-centred care, as well as supporting individuals to reconnect with their innate capacities to heal, through music.”

Our Product Mission
Our product mission is to deliver the world’s first person-centred music solution for practitioners and listeners to facilitate Experience as Medicine with music.
Wavepaths for practitioners enables therapists and clinicians to work with music in a truly person-centred way, as an extension of the therapeutic relationship and to deepen therapeutic alliance.
Wavepaths enables listeners to create unique, personalised, adaptive music experiences to facilitate emotional reconnection and release, autobiographical insight, calm and focus.
