Cornel’s mental wellness journey is deeply rooted in his upbringing and the challenges he faced while pursuing his education. Born into a diplomatic family, he had to adapt to frequent international moves and changing environments. Loneliness first emerged when his older brother was sent to a boarding school in the UK, separating them. This early experience of detachment set the stage for Cornel’s future struggles with loneliness and disassociation.

As Cornel transitioned to different boarding schools and universities, his mental health began to deteriorate. He developed an overwhelming fear of academic failure, which led to extreme anxiety, obsessive studying, and a deep sense of isolation. His self-esteem plummeted as he internalized negative beliefs and self-deprecating behaviors.

“My mental health started to deteriorate. I started to lose focus and memory. There was a lot of anxiety attached to the idea of passing my exams, and not just passing, but getting a first class!”

– Cornel

When his family noticed his distress, they encouraged him to seek help from mental health professionals. Cornel’s journey to recovery involved taking a year off from university, seeking therapy, and receiving medications to address his anxiety and depression. It was during this time that he began to explore ways to regain his mental well-being.

Cornel’s results provided as a summary

Cornel’s interaction with therapists played a crucial role in his healing journey. He found their empathetic and non-judgmental approach comforting, allowing him to express his thoughts and emotions freely. Through therapy, Cornel learned to expand his mindset and challenge the self-imposed limitations that contributed to his anxiety and depression.

One therapist’s encouragement to go on dates and engage in social activities helped Cornel break out of his shell and rediscover the importance of balance in life. Therapy also assisted him in developing a more positive self-image and improving his communication skills.

Cornel’s experience with Emo7ions provided unique insights into his emotional expressions and their misalignment with his inner feelings. He discovered that he had developed a strong tendency to conceal his emotions, likely as a defense mechanism rooted in fear and distrust of others. The software identified moments of happiness when anger and other negative emotions were bubbling within him.

In comparison to face-to-face therapy, Cornel views Emo7ions as a valuable complement. The software fosters self-reflection and self-understanding, which he believes is essential for mental well-being. He appreciates its ability to reveal the gap between his outward expressions and internal emotions, signaling an opportunity for personal growth.

“Firstly, when I was talking about my inability to connect with people in my workplace, the software was able to recognize momentary anger”

Cornel gained valuable insights from the Emo7ions platform. It effectively pinpointed emotions related to specific sources or causes. For example, when discussing his challenges connecting with colleagues, the software detected moments of anger, highlighting his deep yearning for social interaction. It also accurately captured the fear and guilt associated with a past breakup, shedding light on his people-pleasing tendencies and self-judgment.

Furthermore, Cornel’s discussion of his family revealed underlying sadness, which he linked to unmet expectations related to physical distance. The platform’s ability to capture these emotions provided Cornel with a deeper understanding of his emotional responses to various situations.

“When it came to discussing my family, there was some sadness attached to the source of discussion. I believe this is because I have certain wants from my family that have not been met, e.g. the physical distance from one another (we as a family live in four different countries at the moment). The results were able to capture this well.”

Cornel offered valuable suggestions for improving the Eleos Sensors platform:

  1. Capture Hand Gestures: Allow for a distance between the participant and the camera to capture hand gestures and body language, which can provide additional insights into emotional states.
  2. Guided Visualization: For each question, guide participants to immerse themselves in a specific moment, encouraging them to recall the situation vividly. This approach can enhance the accuracy of emotion detection.

Cornel wholeheartedly recommended the platform to his friends, emphasizing its potential to facilitate self-reflection and personal growth. His journey with Emo7ions demonstrated its ability to complement traditional therapy, offering individuals a valuable tool for understanding their emotions and mental well-being on a deeper level.
