WHAT ARE MAPOLOGY GUIDES?
Mapology Guides are illustrated self-help maps for life’s journey. The vibrant fold out maps are playful and thought-provoking, with the main aim to help you build an emotional toolkit as you navigate your way through life.
We cover themes like overthinking, uncertainty and how to say NO - with the hope you will cultivate new ways of thinking, being and doing. They are designed to educate, entertain and transform.
We use mapping techniques (despite the non-geographic themes) to communicate our message and hope that you will be inspired to travel from a dilemma, question or something that's niggling you, to a helpful resolution.
WHO ARE MAPOLOGY GUIDES FOR?
Our colourful maps are for people interested in creativity, personal development, mental health and well-being. They can be used on one's own, with a friend(s), partner, work colleague or family member. Numerous coaches and therapists use them as a tool with their clients. They also make for a great gift and we know that many frame them as posters.
Every map features a writer and illustrator. We use metaphors - utilising language and imagery - to make the complex subjects engaging.
WHO IS BEHIND MAPOLOGY GUIDES?

Tina has a BA Honours degree in Graphic Design from Central Saint Martins and in the past has worked as a designer and business consultant for the creative industries. With a strong background in psychology, Mapology Guides arose from her passion to find different ways to empower individuals to adopt their own approach to mindfulness, well-being and personal development.
Her love for printed maps and illustration gave her the idea for format and execution.
