The Flourishing Institute specialises in providing practical, well-researched programmes to support individuals, teams and leaders to deliver extraordinary performance.

We specialise in practical, evidence – based programmes, workshops and online courses to help people build the mental skills and knowledge required for thriving at work (both now and into the future).


We have been teaching the science of thriving and positive change for many years now. The programmes we offer bridge the disciplines of positive psychology, neuroscience, psychology of change, health and wellbeing, high performance sport, positive organisational scholarship and positive leadership. Our programmes are filled with simple, practical tools and techniques, which if applied and practiced regularly, make a significant difference to people’s lives and leaders’ ability to lead their teams. We have evolved our programmes based on feedback from hundreds of participants over the last five years and are able to focus classroom time on what we know has the biggest impact.

Our programmes are designed so individuals and organisations can see immediate benefits and measurable outcomes. The benefits of a thriving workforce and a positive culture are enormous. From higher engagement and retention, improved productivity, increases in health, safety and wellbeing, greater creativity and innovation to better bottom line results. The organisations we work with see the benefits of this investment every day.
