Our Vision

The Institute for Applied Positive Psychology was launched in 2014 to provide professionals from many different backgrounds with practical training in the “how to” of Positive Psychology.

Our mission is to complement academic and theory-based learning with real-world coaching for integrating Positive Psychology into practice in health settings, schools and tertiary education facilities, organisations, and communities.

We integrate the latest research evidence and theories with mastery-based learning in small groups so participants not only broaden and deepen their knowledge of the growing field of Positive Psychology, but most importantly take away real-life skills for working in a way that truly complements traditional counselling and coaching models.

And in addition to extending your learning, we are passionately committed to building a professional body of practitioners who “walk the talk”, that is, we are committed to our own development and wellbeing so we can genuinely steer others towards a flourishing life.
