Kain’s Journey

The Learning Years

In his learning years, Kain studied Business, Leadership and the Social Sciences, including psychology, sociology, and philosophy at (Andrew) Carnegie College. In addition to these courses, he also studied other expressions of applied psychology, including coaching, counselling, neuro-linguistic programming, and CBT.


During his studies, Kain instantly identified a void in the delivery of these subjects. He believed that understanding these foundational teachings of modern psychology would not only improve the mental wellness of society as a whole, but the practical application of the principles could be life-changing for those ready to accelerate their personal and professional growth.


The main problem was that these crucial life principles and teachings were often concealed behind a high price-tag and delivered by instructors who didn’t always have and real-world experience of applying the principles. For nearly five years, Kain immersed himself in full-time study to gain insights into human behaviour. During that time, he became credited in business management and leadership. He also launched himself into real-world experience, which included mentoring veteran soldiers through his own non-profit, to help them transition into civilian life.


By teaching and mentoring others, Kain put psychology principles into relevant practice. During those learning years, Kain recognized that a new innovative approach to teaching applied psychology and the behavioural sciences was essential, to improve overall mental wellness and combine practical principles with valuable life experience.

Education Rebellion

Through innovation, hard work, and forward-thinking, Kain rebelled against the conventional view of education and embarked upon a campaign of educational reformation. No longer would the principles of modern applied psychology be hidden behind a high price-tag and academic bureaucracy. He was committed to the process of bringing those principles to the masses.


In 2014, Kain was requested to become a personal development instructor at Now, with over 550,000 students worldwide, Kain’s unique approach to teaching has propelled him to become one of the most sought-after instructors in Udemy’s personal development, social science and mental health categories.


While online learning has allowed Kain to deliver education to the world, he still felt something was missing from the online model. Learning the principles is not the same as real-world application. To bridge the gap, Kain turned his focus toward developing a new, online, community-based model of education – merging technical automation with real-time human interaction.

The Birth of Achology

For the first time, ambitious entrepreneurs, educators, mentors and social pioneers can develop themselves, embrace their full potential, and contribute back into society through gaining in-depth knowledge of the foundational principles of modern psychology and the benefit of real-world application through community-centred online learning.
