Health is not only about the absence of illness but also includes the presence and nurturing of wellbeing. Positive psychology is the scientific study of well-being and optimal human functioning which continues to uncover the best means of attaining such for individuals, groups, and communities. Positive psychology is not about putting on ‘rose coloured glasses’, getting all happy-clappy, and ignoring life’s challenges. The evolving scientific research demonstrates that certain strategies can be employed and certain skills can be developed to assist people with navigating the challenges of life more effectively and to even enjoy life despite such upsets.
The set-up of an evidence-based coaching program is unique to each client’s specific goals and challenges. The first meeting is always about establishing client goals and uncovering the changes required to achieve such goals. Subsequent meetings aim to keep things on track by developing workable plans for positive change, to stay motivated, overcome obstacles, solve problems, and to develop resilience. The coaching process aims to develop skills that make sense and can be used again in the future.
Essentially this means providing services that use the most effective up-to-date, scientifically researched assessment, coaching, and treatment options. Ongoing professional development is engaged to remain current with the research literature and to incorporate such into practice.
