Creating a flourishing world.

Embrace the power of the positive

At The Positivity Institute, we believe in creating a flourishing world, through empowering people to live their best possible lives.

But what does this actually mean?

  • It means taking a proactive approach to mental wellbeing, and helping you be on the front foot with your mental health.
  • It means practical programs for individuals, groups and organisations, which are people-focused, and informed by our extensive research and experience.
  • And it means reframing negative assumptions around mental wellbeing, and focusing on people’s strengths and potential.

We pride ourselves on helping people to create high-quality connections and enjoy positive relationships, experience more joy, energy and awe within their lives.

The force for positive change is within us all.

As humans, we naturally want to feel meaning and a sense of accomplishment, to have a desire for growth and development. At The Positivity Institute, we focus on wellbeing enhancement, giving people the tools for self-actualisation and cultivating positivity, optimism, hope and joy.

We’re here to help you and your people enhance their wellbeing, to contribute to a more flourishing world.

A proactive approach.

We believe in taking a proactive approach to mental wellbeing, giving people tools to enhance their mental health in a positive way, rather than waiting for them to be in a mental crisis before offering help.

We aim to promote flourishing, reduce languishing, and build mental toughness, while discovering the best parts of life – joy, creativity, connection – along the way.

Life’s too short to languish. Let’s make it count.
