The MA in Applied Psychology (Positive and Coaching Psychology) brings together the fields of Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology.
“Coaching psychology can be understood as being the systematic application of behavioural science to the enhancement of life experience, work performance and well-being for individuals, groups and organisations who do not have clinically significant mental heath issues or abnormal levels of distress.”

Coaching Psychologists, and coaches who work from a psychological perspective, are specialists in behaviour change who use evidence based methodologies to bring about positive change.
Setting goals is an important life skill and one of the key components of success in life. Evidence based coaching psychology is the science of forming appropriate goals in line with our values, increasing motivation towards goal attainment, and then bringing to bear methodologies to achieve these goals.
Positive Psychology is the science of well-being, strengths and the achievement of our potential, and all that is good in us. As a person’s level of well-being increases, their goal attainment also increases.
Consequently, the synergies between Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology make for a very powerful approach in helping people realise their potential, and approach becoming their best possible selves.
