With increasing rates of depression, substance misuse, suicide, divorce rate, and burnout around the world, feelings of isolation and meaninglessness are more pervasive than ever. Most standard psychological treatments and modalities are leaving clients hopelessly misunderstood when it comes to their existential concerns. In order to better help clients, patients, students, and employees struggling with these issues, we need to understand what is causing this widespread ‘meaning crisis’ and what we can do about it before promoting the value of life.



The Meaning & Valued Living Coaching Masterclass© introduces a new, science-based method for understanding and applying positive psychology. Using this method, you will learn and practice the essential skills that practitioners need to effectively help people find more meaning, fulfilment, and purpose in daily life.

In comparing human functioning to a captain’s interaction with the different elements of a sailboat, this method:

offers a ready-to-go method for applying positive psychology
gives clients an intuitive way to share experiences
makes you well-equipped to increase meaning and valued living
creates a clear structure in the vast field of positive psychology
 provides hands-on tools to put this method into practice


Sometimes business people don’t relate to positive psychology. They’re suspicious of it. They wonder how it’s really going to help them in their work. After following this masterclass, I feel confident explaining to management how to create an atmosphere that promotes well-being and meaningful work and make a direct connection with the bottom line. This can be a magnet for attracting top talent.

This has been a complete reboost in positive psychology for me. I now have so many ideas and practical tools to bring to my coaching and training business in Canada. I like that you have created a great environment to study positive psychology at an affordable price. The world is in great need 🙂 Thank you for what you do.

Josephine Tite | Positive Psychology Coach

At first, I wasn’t quite sure whether this masterclass was for me because I’m not a therapist and mostly work with business managers and employees. Soon I realized how much this knowledge will help to create an atmosphere at the workplace that will allow everyone to experience more meaning and feel more fulfilled at the end of the day.

Second Wave Positive Psychology refers to the importance of an “open acknowledgment and appreciation of the negative side of human existence, a side that has heretofore been denied or dismissed by promoters of the movement’s dominant message” (Held, 2004, p.40). Recently, scholars within Positive Psychology have begun to adopt a more nuanced approach to the notions of ‘positive’ and ‘negative’ and have worked on a new mature synthesis of positive and negative within the field.
