What is wellbeing?
Wellbeing is a positive state where we feel and function well. Whatever our starting point, we can all move in this direction.
Our approach is guided by the questions what would it look like if things were going well here? and how can we make that more likely to occur? We can apply those questions to our personal lives and relationships, to teams or communities we belong to and to the larger world we are part of. The three levels of personal, social and ecological wellbeing are reflected in the three loops of our logo. Two themes we particularly focus on are:
- Resilience Training
- Sustainable Happiness
Resilience is our ability to withstand, deal with and/or recover from difficult situations. It includes our ability to make the best of things, cope with stress and rise to the occasion. We all have this ability, though maybe not always as much as we’d like. Research has shown that training in resilience reduces our risk of depression, anxiety and stress-related harm, while becoming better at coping with adversity helps us get more from life. With the times of uncertainty we live in, this is a much needed skill.
Our first video-based on-demand online course Personal Resilience in an Hour is available at the online platform Udemy, featuring our director and lead trainer Dr Chris Johnstone. Here’s a two and a half minute film introducing the course.

For a more in-depth course, our seven-module online Resilience Practitioner Training is available to follow at your own pace. Featuring recorded webinars together with an interactive online resource with video, audio, a discussion forum and other resources, this course guides you through practices and skills that grow our capacity to deal with, be strengthened by and/or recover from difficult times. This course is designed for dual benefit, to be useful personally while also equipping you with tools you can pass on to others.
Can we have deeply satisfying lives that don’t cost the Earth? Sustainable Happiness is a deeper, more enduring kind of happiness linked to meaningful purpose, growth of strengths, improved relationships and life satisfaction. With this approach, happiness now isn’t at the expense of our own wellbeing, that of other people, our world or future generations. Sustainable Happiness is something we can cultivate, plant, grow and build – by doing this, we take part in a cultural shift that is good both for ourselves and for the world around us.
By seeing happiness as linked more to skills we learn than materials we own, we develop richly satisfying lives less dependent on consumerism. Drawing on research findings and proven practices from Positive Psychology, our hour-long downloadable Happiness Training Plan audio course introduces practical strategies for improving mood and quality of life. Our ground-breaking 8-week Positive Psychology Foundations Programme runs again on 2nd May 2018. Please contact us if you’re interested in joining this course. We’re also offering a free webinar on How to Be a Positive Psychology Practitioner on 18th April 2018.
