Positive Psychology emerged as a field of scientific study in the 1990s, concerned on human potential and the makeup of happiness and wellbeing; our thoughts, feelings and behaviour. It investigated how we could focus on our strengths instead of our weaknesses, on building a good life instead of fixing a bad one, on taking an average performance on to a great one and shifting those who are struggling into a functional level.
Roy F. Baumeister (2013) research showed that happiness and a sense of meaning in life do not necessarily go hand-in-hand, indicating that focusing on positive emotions alone will not bring the fulfilling and satisfying life you crave.
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.
Coaches would also gain a better understanding about the psychology of flourishing and human potential, and how the industry is now integrating positive psychology into the practice and focusing on character strengths, optimism, life satisfaction, well-being, gratitude, compassion, self-esteem and self-confidence and hope. How this subject offers us ways to apply its findings with individuals and groups.
You will also discover how coaches might work with clients who might have experienced negative thoughts, liming beliefs, depression and a lack of meaning in their lives.

The journey I’m taking is inside me. Just like blood travels down veins, what I’m seeing is my inner self and what seems threatening is just the echo of the fear in my heart.
Undoubtedly, most of us have been caught up in some sort of vicious cycle at least once in our lives, continuing to repeat unconstructive behaviours and finding no way out of breaking it. Eating unhealthily, staying in toxic relationships, overspending whilst in debt – If we haven’t faced it ourselves, we have experienced it through friends and family, or have seen clients who are stuck in the pattern and unable to come out of it.
It can be a real stumbling block, and often feels like a lost cause…
So how great would it be if we were able to decode patterns to access our inner self and understand why we have conflicts? Why certain circumstances make us react in ways we know are harmful but unable to stop? And how to bridge the gap between what we think we should want and what we actually want?
Really useful right? And it’s entirely possible!
Join Nishe, Animas Trainer, Integrative Coach and Hypnotherapist at this insightful lecture.
The talk Decoding Patterns to Access Inner Selves will look at questions around decoding patterns and breaking cycles, and provide you with a perspective of working with inner selves (Internal parts of our whole self.), and the positive impact that it can have for both you, and your clients.
This is for you if:
- as a coach you are interested in work around identity
- you want to help clients to not just find their patterns, but break them
- you want to better assist your clients in finding their truth
Through a mix of theory and group discussion, you will explore –
- What an inner self is and Nishe’s perspective on how they are created.
- Brief insight into the value of working with inner selves.
- Nishe’s 3-step approach to starting this work with some practical tips.
- Gain insight into an integrative approach that combines various aspects of the Animas DTC with the speaker’s areas of interest.
If you are yourself struggling, or have clients who resist to even acknowledge patterns, are unwilling to get out of their comfort zone or really tussle with relationships, then you will find this talk both brilliantly interesting and practically useful.
So come and join us for what promises to be a great evening, and as always, the Animas Team look forward to catching up with you all at the bar after the lecture!
