The pace of life in Hong Kong is fast and the working pressure is heavy, and it is easy to overlook your mental health. When negative emotion has been buried at the bottom of the heart, one day this emotion will overwhelm and it is too late.

This year July, illustrator Matti Pikkujämsä and Psychotherapist Antti Ervasti will visit Hong Kong and bring a series of Heartwarming activity with them to refresh everyone tired soul.

I’m too tired to talk but let’s hug
I don’t live in the past but the past lives in me.
Sometimes paradise is close.
Let me support you
What do I want from life? More of this.
I’m a single mother of three piglets.
I am not afraid to express my emotions.
Where is your mind?
Be a sloth!
You shape your own life.
Stop being proud of multitasking.
ABOUT CupOfTherapy ：
CupOfTherapy is a new concept which sprang up in May 2017. It introduces the world of distinctive and easily approachable animal figures to us through drawings and important themes which support well-being and mental health.
In the CupOfTherapy products life’s big and small problem points are depicted in a gentle way. The illustrations communicate encouragement, comfort and humour. We want to bring up difficult and sensitive topics and situations with the help of our products. Each CupOfTherapy drawing is carefully considered and important to us. They offer people a way to relate to these universally shared, even challenging themes.
The CupOfTherapy world was created by psychotherapy professionals Antti Ervasti and Elina Rehmonen together with awarded and internationally recognised illustrator and graphic designer (who constantly works with Marimekko, Samuji, Muji, Idee, Graniph, etc..) Matti Pikkujämsä.
