Description

Dear Friends, I have included a daily video using a new 'key' word each day, to help you think about flourishing within your life, what is important to you and the reasons why.  Taking a few moments out for yourself each day armed with a notebook and pen, to scribble down your learnings and thoughts. Designing your life so that you may step into becoming your own best friend, treating yourself with respect and above all dignity. A few precious moments to listen to your inner voice, become calm and still.

Learning to love yourself is the first ripple into real authentic happiness and self acceptance.  In a world where everything is so face paced, you will have the opportunity to experience genuine empathy and caring support, as you find your own personal strengths, gain resilience and growth in quick bite-size positive psychology sessions.

Positive Psychology is deep and meaningful and enables people to look into their inner selves and acknowledges their weaknesses and celebrates their strengths without bias and enables us to challenge our perceptions. It is an integration of both sides of our personalities allowing personal freedom to being our authentic selves. Positive Psychology asks the question, ‘why do some people languish, and fail to thrive while others flourish becoming fully alive’? ‘Can we learn from those that flourish’? Take some time in each day so that you teach yourself to flourish - you are important.

It is not always succeeding but how we cope with failure, Positive Psychology asks ‘What’s right with your life’? By finding and acknowledging our strengths we can learn to thrive and flourish despite or because of challenging times. As our muscles become stronger via stressing through exercise, so can our skills of flourishing by using the tools of self-knowledge and positive psychology. B Siegel calls them ‘live messages’ that travel to our brains and throughout our bodies, we can look at challenging our inherent negative bias and look at focusing on our strengths.

Look within to reach out and become happier, it always starts with you.

Positive Psychologist, Happiness Specialist, Clinical Counsellor, Guinness World Record Holder

In a world where everything is so face paced you will have the opportunity to experience genuine empathy and caring support, as you find your own personal strengths, gain resilience and growth in quick bite-size positive psychology sessions.

I have been in the privileged position of counselling terminally ill people and those affected by cancer, depression, stress and anxiety for the last fifteen years. I was fascinated in finding out more about personal resilience, grit and how people coped in difficult times.

As a Master in Positive Psychology (MSc), I am able to bring you knowledge and insight into the ‘Science of Happiness’ and how to bring happiness into your everyday work and home lives.

I use Positive Psychology tools to help increase your confidence, well-being, self-esteem and help people to flourish and achieve their full potential. In Japan, there is a practice of when something precious breaks, like a vase it is repaired with gold adding value and beauty, this is called ‘Kintsugi’. For me and my clients, positive psychology focuses on the inner gold thread running through our bodies looking to heal and flourish given the right conditions, finding the gold within ourselves to shine and present to the world. We all go through personal difficulties but as a positive psychology counsellor I am looking for your gold.

From a personal point of view since starting my own positive psychology journey, I have never felt happier. I appreciate the smallest of moments and cultivate friendships; I’ve found my flow in dancing and most importantly I ask for help when I need it. I’m not afraid to be vulnerable, fail or look silly, I’ve become braver and more self-assured. I am now officially amazing, after becoming a Guinness World Record Holder for organising the largest Hula Hoop work out for Macmillan Cancer Trust. I’ve found my gold in the work that I cherish and the clients, I am honoured and privileged to work with.
