CupofTherapy© Gains Peace of Mind After Selecting FanGirl Consulting to Build North American Licensing Business

“Mental health made visible”

January 16, 2019 - The Finnish CupofTherapy concept has selected FanGirl Consulting & Brand Management, LLC as its licensing agent in U.S. and Canada.

CupOfTherapy is a Finnish concept that introduces important themes of wellbeing and mental health through distinctive and approachable animal figures. CupOfTherapy has become a social media phenomenon since the launch of its original book “CupOfTherapy” (“Tilkkanen terapiaa”) published in 2017 by the Finnish publishing house Otava. In 2018, MUJI then published the book under the title “Dai Jo Bu,” translated Is Everything OK?”. The brand’s therapeutic drawings and striking texts were developed as a combined effort by psychotherapy professionals Antti Ervasti and Elina Rehmonen together with awarded and internationally recognized artist and illustrator Matti Pikkujämsä. The CupofTherapy concept encourages people to reflect on their life and find comfort, encouragement, and joy in simple things as well and acknowledges the importance of having dialogue around important mental health issues.
