We combine the latest tools and techniques from Positive Psychology and Neuroscience to guide you gently to regain wellbeing and give you the life skills to keep flourishing.

Grow2GR8 includes ten modules:

  • Session 1: Vision of my best self
  • Session 2: What are my strengths?

  • Session 4: Memory and mental fitness
  • Session 5: Boosting positive emotions
  • Session 6: Banishing bad thinking habits

Each module includes a short lesson about the topic, followed by practical exercises to put the theory into practice. The aim is to build up a toolbox of useful skills for coping positively with the ups and downs of life, whilst retraining new brain pathways and making sustainable changes to keep yourself well.
