About Sanctus

Sanctus helps individuals and organisations improve wellbeing and performance with high quality, human centred coaching. 

We empower people to connect with their true selves and each other through our unique approach to coaching: a blend of personal and professional development with proactive mental health support.

Sanctus began life as a community rallied around a simple mission: normalise the conversation around mental wellbeing and make proactive support readily available at work.

Over the last five years we’ve built a community we’re proud of and together, we’ve played an important role in shifting outdated narratives around wellbeing in the workplace, and empowered tens of thousands of people to work on themselves with a Sanctus Coach.

Our customers are our partners and we’re proud to work with start-ups like FundApps, agencies like VaynerMedia and Global Brands like Red Bull, Reward Gateway and the Boston Consulting Group.
