Discover the power of Positive Psychology Coaching in this comprehensive course. Explore the evidence-based principles of positive psychology and learn how to integrate them with effective coaching techniques to support personal growth and wellbeing.

Positive psychology focuses on what is going right, rather than what is going wrong, providing a growth mindset to increase our resilience, achievement and wellbeing.

In this course, you'll gain a deep understanding of the principles and theories that underpin Positive Psychology Coaching. We’ll explore positive emotions, character strengths, resilience, and wellbeing models. Learn how to apply evidence-based interventions and coaching techniques grounded in positive psychology to help individuals flourish and reach their goals.

Throughout the course, you'll develop essential coaching skills, such as active listening, powerful questioning, and reframing, to foster meaningful change in your clients. Engage in practical exercises, case studies, and discussions that enhance your ability to create a supportive coaching alliance and guide individuals towards their desired outcomes.

Whether you're an aspiring coach, a practising professional, or someone seeking personal growth, this course offers a valuable toolkit for facilitating positive change. We’ll cover everything from the ground up including core coaching skills, working across cultures, professional coaching issues and integrating PPC with other approaches.
