Based on the work of Martin Seligman, then president of the American Psychological Association, and Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s Flow (The Psychology of Optimal Experience), and acknowledging a debt to the pioneers of humanistic psychology, Positive Psychology is aimed at complementing traditional psychology by focusing on research into the elements of a satisfying life.

Rather than looking at what is clinically “wrong”, it concentrates instead on the strengths and virtues that allow people to thrive. It is sometimes referred to as “the science of happiness”.

It teaches clients practical strategies to increase psychological well-being.
