How is this different from traditional psychology or coaching?
Aria Positive Psychology & Wellbeing draws on positive psychology coaching and life coaching to provide you with the tools and understanding to move your life from simply surviving to flourishing.
We align our approach and teachings to those based on the work of Christopher Peterson, a leading researcher in the field of positive psychology which argue
What is good in life is as genuine as what is bad
What is good in life is not simply the absence of what is problematic
The good life requires its own explanation, not simply a theory of disorder stood sideways or flipped on its head
We focus on longer term fulfilment, and not those momentary short bursts of supposed happiness many of us seek to find.
We do not provide clinic psychology services. We provide positive psychology coaching and life coaching services.
