About Us

View our story

Our aim is to create flourishing lives and increase the wellbeing of the world!

Creating a Flourishing World

The force for positive change is within us all. Famous humanistic psychologist, Carl Rogers referred to it as the “actualising tendency” – our innate desire for growth and development. And, whilst there has been an ever-increasing thirst for knowledge as to peak performance and optimal human development, it wasn’t until the Positive Psychology movement emerged in the late 1990s that the science allowed us to identify the essential psychological needs we all have and strategies we can take to increase our overall wellbeing. Positive psychology is the science of optimal human functioning – for individuals, groups, teams, organisations, communities and society.
