Certificate in Positive Psychology Coaching

Positive Psychology emerged as a field of scientific study in the 1990s, focusing on human potential and the makeup of happiness and wellbeing, rather than on fixing people’s problems.

The starting point of positive psychology is the belief that people want to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, to develop themselves, and to enhance their experiences. Sharing assumptions about human nature with coaching, Positive Psychology offers us ways to apply its findings with individuals and groups.

Coaches have benefited from understanding more about the psychology of flourishing and human potential, and many coaches now integrate positive psychology into their practice.

This course will help you understand more about what motivates people, and about the pillars of a good life. You will develop a language to celebrate your clients’ strengths and become more clear about that thing that everybody seems to chase their whole life: Happiness.
