May 2021: I am currently studying a Positive Psychology Course, ‘The Science of Happiness’. The course explores the roots of a happy and meaningful life through science and practice. Taught via by Dacher Keltner and Emiliana Simon-Thomas, Directors of the Greater Good Science Centre, University of California, Berkeley. The Science of Happiness hones in on a key finding from positive psychology: that happiness is fundamentally linked to having strong social ties and contributing to something bigger than yourself—the greater good.

9 April 2020: This Easter I understand that life may be a little bit different for children around the world. I am delighted to share our ‘Cc for calm’ activity for you to complete as a family. Schools and childcare settings are welcome to access the activity too! Please visit the resources page for details.
March 2020: Did you know that we have delivered the programme to children who speak English as a second language, and to bi-lingual children. We were blessed at one school to have a Teacher interpret in Mandarin for us! At the moment I am working with children and families from Central America, teaching the programme in Spanish: “El abecedario del bienestar.”
2016- 2019: Did you know that we have consulted on The Wellbeing Alphabet with schools and education departments in the UK, the U.S.A, Greece and many countries. This has been an exciting phase learning about global wellbeing, and how it is taught in international schools, and British schools overseas. Read about one of our launches at The British Embassy in Athens, supported by the UK Department for International Trade and The Council of British International Schools!
