Feeling Positive 1: Applying the Benefits of Positive Psychology in Everyday Life
Do you want to 'reprogram' your brain to feel happier and calmer? Do you ever get stuck in a mood, a rut or incessant negative thoughts? Do emotions like anger or sadness sometimes overwhelm you? Do you feel you need to find more balance in your work or personal life?
The world of Positive Psychology introduces simple, effective and practical tools to help you look at the world in ways that help you feel happy, optimistic and in control of your life. This is not about faith, affirmations or getting a personality transplant. Instead, it’s about really looking inside and gently challenging the way you see your life... prepare to be surprised!
Presented in a lively, frank, hands-on and often humorous way, this workshop is about recognizing unconscious patterns and how we all have the potential to be the architects of our own happiness. Please note that this is not a substitute for counselling nor is it a group therapy session. The tone of the workshop will be educational, upbeat, inspiring and will offer you an 'aha!' moment or two!
