Positive Psychology Practice Group

The outdoor session of Positive Psychology Practice Group was held at Lepe Country Park this month. We began the group with a structured breathing exercise and a mindful walk. We then had an open discussion on personal development and positive psychology while walking along the beach.

This group is for anyone who has completed at least one of our courses and is a great way to practice the learning from the more structured groups. The monthly cost is £25. It includes 2 online meetings a month and one outdoor session a month. The membership fee also includes 20% off courses and coaching sessions.

Julie Flood

Julie is a real advocate of positive Psychology. She shares her knowledge and skills with friends, family and work colleagues. Her journey is similar to mine in that her first encounter with positive Psychology was when she came along to a laughter yoga session. She later trained as a practitioner and we run our sessions together on the first Saturday morning of the month. Julie has completed all of the PP courses, some more than once, and the meditation courses. Her new skills and strategies were put to the test when she faced a traumatic event in May 2020. Julie and her family had to escape from their burning house and did not return until 9 months later. Julie found her tool box of positive psychology strategies were invaluable throughout this period. You are a terrific example of resilience Julie, thank you for being open with your experiences and for the support that you give others in the group.
