One Day Workshops will be available in the autumn and an 8 week course from January 2018

This pioneering course explores how the science of positive psychology plus various meditation and relaxation techniques, can help to boost your mood naturally, develop resilience and inner strengths, and improve your health and well-being.

“Change doesn’t happen by wishing…Change Happens when you learn New Skills, Take Action and have Support along the way!”

Positive psychology offers tried and tested tools and strategies that can also increase your optimism, help you recognise and develop your strengths and gain an overall better quality and meaning in your life. It also has been show to help increase motivation and optimism, and improve our health – both short and long term. Positive Psychology has proved particularly effective with mild to moderate depression – although you absolutely don’t need to be in a low mood to come on this course!  Whatever your starting point, the strategies shared can keep you on an upward spiral of positive well-being!

Mindfulness and Loving Kindness Meditations will also be taught as research shows they are effective in not only calming the mind and enabling us to manage stress more effectively, but will increase a sense of well-being and self-esteem.  Good breathing is another simple, yet powerful way to calm your mind, increase energy and help you cope with a busy lifestyle; this, surprisingly, is a popular tool that people use in all situations.
