We have trained hundreds of participants from around the world with consistently high praise. The Masterclass not only gives you the essential  tools of positive psychology, it also acts as a springboard to working in the field. Many of our past delegates have developed their own niche within positive psychology and we’re immensely proud of giving them such a positive start. We now have a collection of books written by past delegates! One of our alumni, Andria Zafirakou (3rd right) has won the Global Best Teacher Prize.

The training takes place at the Engineers’ House by Brunel’s famous Clifton Suspension Bridge. Bristol is conveniently located for rail services, is at the junction of the M4 & M5 motorways and the airport is a major gateway to Europe. Previous delegates have come from across the UK and Europe – France, Portugal, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland and from much farther afield – Angola, Australia (four times now!), Hong Kong and the UAE. One of the extra benefits of attending the Masterclass is to connect and share ideas with like-minded people.

Our recommendation is that you attend Part 1 first to cover the foundations and experience what positive psychology is about. Then take the opportunity to put the tools into practice before coming back to Part 2. We assume prior knowledge and experience of using positive psychology at Part 2 so please get in touch to discuss if you’d like to go straight to Part 2.

Spring offer! Book both the Foundations (17-18 May) and Advanced (12-13 July) workshops by April 27th and receive an extra £50 off the fees.
