Why become a member of the Positive Psychology Network?

Positive Psychology is a rapidly expanding approach to coaching and training delivery. It brings the science of wellbeing and practice of flourishing to multiple domains, from the classroom and training centre to the workplace, playing field and beyond. Yet those who train in and practice Positive Psychology might wonder where they belong. Should they join a coaching body for accreditation, licensing, and membership? Or should they join a psychology body?

We understand what it’s like to feel out of place and in search of a home or somewhere to belong. This is why we set up the Positive Psychology Guild for Positive Psychology Practitioners, Coaches and Trainers. Through us, you have the opportunity to join an emerging UK membership, accreditation, and licensing body dedicated to the support of professionals such as yourself. You also have the option of joining the Positive Psychology Network Register of Professionals once you are qualified. This will enhance your visibility and credibility online.

 

How do you benefit from becoming a PPN member?

Whether you intend to integrate your skills into an existing role, set up a solo coaching or training practice, or become a fully-fledged training centre, we can offer you the support you need. Not only will you find a place amongst like-minded practitioners but you will also have free access to our journal and discounted access to our UK-based events, conferences, and CPD workshops. You can also become an approved centre for delivery of our Positive Psychology courses throughout the UK and worldwide.

Professional affiliation and registration matters when working with clients. By joining us as a member, you may freely apply to join the PPN Register of Professionals. Your membership also includes abiding by our Code of Conduct and Code of Ethics, which are designed to help you to deliver a service to your clients in a professional manner.They also serve as a reminder to take care of yourself and avoid getting into stressful or difficult situations that may challenge or deter your ongoing practice.

 

How else do we support your growth?

We advocate for the advancement of Positive Psychology and its potential to make a positive and lasting impact on people’s lives. Through our research centres, initiatives, and peer-reviewed journal, we also contribute to the development of Positive Psychology as an evidence-based approach to coaching and training interventions. So if your ambitions include academic research or engagement, you’ll find a home amongst us too.

We are also passionate about creating community spaces where Positive Psychology practitioners, coaches, trainers, and students can connect, feel supported, learn from each other, and grow. We support our professional and fellow members in creating these positive spaces, which we call Positive Psychology Circles. If you wish to become a circle leader, we will provide you with the tools and materials needed to start and run them at no extra cost.
