Eckstra Credit is a tongue-in-cheek way of denoting that courageous step we take into our present experience, where, in an uncomfortable situation, we take a breath in and sense into our body, becoming aware of our reactions instead of finding comfort in a distraction.  

Eckstra Credit is a boutique firm that helps employers with one thing: the balance, wellbeing, and personal growth of their employees.

EC employs science, psychology, and history’s best philosophical models and paradigms to improve your employees' personal lives and their contribution at work.
