His focus in 2019 is on wellbeing for men. Helping men to connect to their authentic self to achieve greater clarity, purpose and passion.

Angga also leads Men Up North Link. A men’s mental health expert, and as a resilience and mindfulness coach he helps men to connect to their authentic self to achieve greater clarity, purpose and passion.

In 2017, three of his male friends committed suicide. Going to their funerals broke his heart. Upon research, the realisation is that it’s an epidemic and men all over England are suffering.

Sessions are designed to form a journey to help raise levels of self-awareness and to help men take responsibility with their own lives, goals, actions and feelings with open, honest and non-judgemental discussions. He has developed a unique philosophy and ways of working to really engage men to have open honest conversations.

MEN UP NORTH (M.U.N) are men only group sessions to create a safe space to have open honest conversations. We are a forward thinking community of men from the ages of 21-60 from 15 different heritage and social backgrounds from the unwaged, students to successful business owners.

M.U.N sessions are monthly and our CAN WE TALK are always fully booked with a waiting list. The latest one was full within 3 hours! The aim is to bring men from wide age groups and different walks of life together to share, listen and to gain an understanding of the different perspectives on issues men face relating to mental health and navigating what it means to be man in the modern world.

Our focus is men’s mental health and suicide prevention.

So far M.U.N have done regular group coaching, health & nature walking group, a symposium of Masculinity at Sheffield Hallam University & even taken over a trendy barbershop to attract younger crowds to our community.

We welcome Angga back to Sheffield Hallam at their Institute of Arts to talk #CMwonder and how rediscovering his own wonder after multiple burnouts has led him on the path to do the same for others. See you there!
