We are more than we appear to be

My name is Ed Blunderfield and I am the founder of Open Dialogue. When I was a kid, I wanted to be Spider-Man when I grew up, but ended up as a corporate management consultant at BCG.

Shortly after arriving at BCG in 2012, my father introduced me to an A.I. computer program, built two decades earlier, called "Overcoming Depression". It ran on MS-DOS and hadn't been updated in over 10 years, but it was capable of conversing with its users in everyday human language.

The program sparked a life-altering shift for me. I discovered how powerful my mind is, and was shocked by how much it had been working against me.

This inspired me to build technology that helps us own our great creative potential as humans. So in 2015, together with my father (a psychiatrist) and a friend, I started to build an app inspired by Overcoming Depression.

Since then I have been combining this technology with my professional coaching services, guiding people who want to make major shifts in their personal and professional lives.

I invite you to reach out if you'd like to learn more about Open Dialogue and the work I do to help purpose-driven people unlock their potential.

I'm feeling stuck right now

What generally brings on this frustration?

I'm really struggling at work and watching my relationship fall apart at the same time. I feel useless and don't know what to do.

It sounds like you have a lot going on right now. How about we start by talking about what's going on at work?


An new way to manage stress.

Open Dialogue is a chat-based system that talks to you about stressful situations so that you can gain new perspective and greater awareness.

It allows you to express yourself in your own words and responds in meaningful everyday language.

These responses are designed to expand self-awareness by calling attention to aspects of your situation and thinking that you may not have considered.
