THE STORY OF LYFE
OUR PASSIONATE COMMUNITY IS ALWAYS GROWING.
HERE IS HOW IT ALL BEGAN.
21ST CENTURY LIFE CAN BE TOUGH, WITH PRESSURE COMING FROM ALL KINDS OF DIRECTIONS. LYFE WAS CREATED TO HELP MAKE IT EASIER FOR ANYONE TO FIND A HEALTHIER PERSPECTIVE - SO BUSY PEOPLE DON"T JUST SURVIVE, THEY THRIVE.
We want to help make it easier for anyone to live a good life by giving people a simple, structured way of thinking more deeply about their lives and what they need to be happy.
THE STORY OF LIFE
LYFE was founded by doctors and friends, Ed and Tobi. In discussing their day to day work, the pair identified a need to support young people and their mental health.
Ed and Tobi both noticed they were seeing more and more people struggling to stay on top of their health and wellbeing, particularly young people. This got them thinking. They knew from their studies that the ingredients for a rewarding, healthy life were scientifically established. So why were so many people finding it hard to strike the right balance?
While there were lots of other apps and platforms on the market, nothing was integrating all the different components and empowering people to find the balance that worked for them. So they sat down and created LYFE.
Starting with the latest smartphone technology, they devised a way of integrating core therapeutic principals – from fitness and diet to time with nature and contributing to others. All the things that Ed and Tobi knew were most likely to be neglected among their patients.
DR TOBIAS FOX
Whilst Tobias has throughly enjoyed his first year working as an NHS junior doctor in Liverpool, he has felt restricted by the treatment model that the traditional healthcare system advocates.
Tobias sees health as not merely the absence of illness, but a continual striving to live a life that is full, meaningful, zestful and exuberant.
Tobias is on a mission to accelerate the paradigm shift where health is less about treatment and more about prevention / wellness.
Using principles grounded in humanistic psychology and evidence-based behavioural science, Tobias helps people live life well, and wishes to encourage doctors and other healthcare professionals to do the same.
Outside of work, Tobias loves exploring new towns and cities and enjoys getting stuck in with an arts and crafts project with his girlfriend.
DR EDWARD LYNCH
Having worked within the medical field now for seven years, Edward is a highly driven and capable Scouse Doctor who is passionate about improving Liverpool.
Recently elected as Chair of ProLiverpool's Health Board, Ed possess industry leading knowledge that, when combined with his clinical acumen, has the potential to produce drastic social improvements.
Combining an intense predisposition for hard work with scientific creativity separates Ed from the rest of the sector. He plans to execute this (eventually UK-wide) vision with only the greatest talent Liverpool has to offer, through tech-based solutions.
