Our aim at Positiveness Coaching and Training is to help people enjoy a better sense of personal wellbeing, to build knowledge and understanding allowing them to reach their full potential, build resilience, work more effectively, and live a healthier, happier life.This positive approach is shown to

  • manage emotions, reduce anxiety and stress
  • develop resilience and improve wellbeing
  • discover your strengths and increase self confidence
  • clear your thoughts and visualise your brighter future


Coaching is time for real self care.This is your chance to talk through whatever you are dealing with without judgement or advice, sort out your thoughts and feelings, take control and make a plan for change. Your coach will suport you throughout these changes by helping you discover your strengths, boost your self esteem and improve self confidence.  The sessions are individual 1:1 and completely confidential.

Whatever your goal, coaching can help you reach it much more easily than struggling by yourself.
