Our app is based on our experience as psychologists, and our experience as parents. We try to give our children the best start in life by helping them form loving bonds with those around them and develop holistically.

Who we are

Kitty Howarth, DEdPsy

I am an Educational, Child and Community Psychologist and I have over 13 years experience of working with children and applying child psychological theory to practice. Some of my most valuable experience however, has come from becoming a parent to my two children. Parenthood has coloured in the theory that I have studied for years. Now I can see what real and deep connectivity and attunement feels like and I can recognise how this supports social and emotional resilience.

Diana Onu, PhD

Research psychologist and science communication entrepreneur. My 10 years experience in academic research inspired me to make scientific insights more accessible in people's lives. Following this passion, I co-founded PsyNovigo, developing apps based on scientific research. Above all experiences, becoming a parent has shown me how empowering knowledge can be. In those early days, knowledge of child psychology helped me be a calmer, more loving, more resilient parent. I am grateful to be part of bringing Art'tachment to parents everywhere.

Dan Marshall, MSc

A dad, psychologist and small business owner. I have spent most of my career working as an applied or research psychologist. In recent years I co-founded a business developing smartphone apps with a firm foundation in research. I attended the Art’tachment sessions at Kitty’s house and did not just survive, but was deeply moved and inspired by them. So much so, that I am working towards bringing the Art’tachment app into life to share with and to benefit as many parents and carers as possible.

What drives us?

Supporting parents and children

Like many other parents, we believe in parenting based on the principles of love and respect. Meeting children’s needs can be tricky in a landscape of work, chores, family relationships, societal pressures and expectations…

Art'tachment as parent's helper

We hope that Art’tachment will be part of your toolbox to help you be the parent you want to be. The app is designed to enable you to better meet your child’s need for connectedness and stimulation. We hope you will enjoy doing the activities together and that you will benefit from scientific insights to better understand your child. And that the app will help you pause and be present with your child. 

Our guiding principles

Science-based content

We strongly believe in making scientific evidence accessible to all parents. This knowledge can empower parents to better care for their children. That is why most of the educational content we produce will be free.

Affordability

We try to keep costs low and make our mobile app as affordable as possible to parents all over the world. We are not focused on profit-making beyond covering our operational costs.

Giving back

We believe in supporting worthy causes in our communities. We commit to donating 50% of all profits (after covering our operational costs) to worthy charitable causes. We will choose these causes with the help of the Art'tachment community.
