Certificate in Positive Psychology for Coaches

What is Positive Psychology?

Positive Psychology is an evidence based school of psychology. It’s the scientific study of the positive aspects of human life. Focusing how human beings thrive, flourish and most effectively achieve their goals, positive psychology offers a unique insight into our inner game.

Positive psychology provides science backed, practical tools to help people lead fulfilling lives – at work, in relationships, education or personal development. It offers balance to traditional models of psychology that often focus on pathology. It complements rather than replaces traditional psychotherapy.
