About Us

Making Stories Better 

Everyone’s life story is unique.
We all face different challenges.

Our story started when the world was gripped by the Covid pandemic. Like everybody else we were unsettled. We Zoomed. We reflected on our lives. And, like everybody else, over weeks of talk the masks fell away. We admitted our deepest fears, acknowledged our struggles, and discussed what we wanted for our futures.

We agreed that it would be great to have some professional support to help us find the fulfillment we wanted. The thing is we didn’t know where to find those specialists to help us grow.

Who were the right people?
How could we contact them?
How would we know if they were good?
How could we trust them?
How could we keep things private?
How could we fit sessions in around our busy lives?

From that Hakkini was born.
To help each person live their unique story.
Happier ever after.

What We Made 

Hakkini is a confidential, convenient, focused, easy way to connect to expert support for better mental and emotional health. It empowers positive behavioral change and enables meaningful personal growth and development, with transformational insights. So many people struggle with finding help, let alone admitting they want or need it.

In the Middle East there can also be a stigma attached to this. Hakkini aims to change that way of thinking. It communicates and champions the truth that mental and emotional health challenges are part of most people’s days. Anyone choosing to deal with their issues is simply choosing to be happier.

We celebrate the strength to seek change.
