What is Vystopia?

Vystopia is the normal response any feeling human being should have after discovering the nature and extent of society’s systematised animal abuse. It’s fuelled by the trance-like collusion of non-vegans with a dystopian world they’ve not yet realised they’re part of.

Is there such a thing as an ex-vegan?

When someone discovers the extent of animal abuse in society and no longer wants to contribute to it, they become vegan.

Many people suffer from vystopia and every day they feel

Do you struggle to communicate effectively in ways that feel like both (or multiple) perspectives are being shared and truly heard?

De-bunking Carnism Whilst Managing Your Vystopia

Are You Tired of Trying to Change Others?

We all come into veganism through different paths – mostly ethics, health, or environmental concerns. However, once we become aware of the ethical imperative of veganism, our lives change.

Is Psychological Counselling right for you?

Clare Mann works 1:1 with individuals and couples around the world to work through their challenges. Many of these challenges relate specifically to being vegan but not necessarily. Many need to work through more general issues related to relationships, work, self-esteem, family, past experiences etc. Most prefer to see a vegan psychologist because their difficulties take place within the experience of vystopia.

In order to decide whether 1:1 counselling is right for you, Clare offers a complimentary 20-min discussion to explore more of what is going on for you and see how specifically she can help. This may mean setting up a initial 1:1 session or pointing you in the right direction with reading, online programs or referral to another vegan practitioner.
