Comments from previous participants 


“I love how the course has connected me with like-minded people who also want to explore positive psychology.”

 “The course has helped me put a toolbox in place to deal with any of those bumps in the road of life.”

 “Positive psychology has had a huge impact on my life and taught me to have more self- compassion and brought me to the realisation that if we want to make a difference in society and help others, we need to invest in ourselves. The teaching is practical down to earth and realistic. It’s understandable but very interesting and thought provoking. Thoroughly recommended!”

 “The positive psychology courses have given me simple and effective tools to use from the very beginning to the very end of my day. Being open to the possibilities of positive psychology and commitment to practicing the tools has improved my relationships and increased my happiness. It’s been life changing. Thank you, Kim and Bryony.”
