About Me


 As of March 2024, I have been in the military for two years, while the Russian invasion of Ukraine continues.

Hi friends - I am Vlad.


I am a psychologist, philosopher, author, and currently an officer in the military of Ukraine.

I have devoted my career to learning everything I can about mental health and the functioning of the human mind to understand how we can make our lives better. I now use this knowledge to help people develop skills to be healthier, happier, and more productive.

Who I am

  • A Psychologist

Creator of the Pyramid Model – a self-care and therapy framework (based on the principles of integrative psychotherapy).


  • An Author

My latest book - ‘The Pyramid Mind’ - is published by Simon & Schuster and translated into different languages.


  • The Founder of Brightway app

Brightway is a journaling app designed to keep track of your daily life and develop a happier and healthier mind.​

  • A Military Officer

Since the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2022, I have been serving in the military of Ukraine, where I also provide psychological support.

  • A Speaker

In peacetime, I travel and speak at companies and events around the world on how to develop more resilient, productive, and happy people, workplaces, and communities.


What I do

  • I share psychological science with the public to help people to understand themselves and create a happier life. I do this through my Books, Apps, Courses, and Speaking. I like distilling complex ideas in a way that is accessible to a wide audience and easy to apply to daily life.​

  • I aim to make high-quality mental health education accessible, affordable, and widespread. Our mental health is just as important as our physical health. But very few actually know how to work with their mind effectively. That's why, I strive to help  people to have science-based knowledge and skills that would allow them to grow and promote their wellbeing.

Why I do it

I strongly believe that once we find peace and harmony within ourselves, we become disposed to build and maintain peace around ourselves.

In other words, if I help you to thrive, then it is likely that you will help someone else. And together, we may build a brighter future for everyone.

And I'd like to live in a kinder and more harmonious world (especially as a person who has witnessed the horror of war and who doesn’t want it to occur ever again).
