Are you intelligent, successful, and depressed?
You’re not struggling enough to need therapy, but at the same time you’re unable to muster the motivation and strength to sustain the positive mindset you need to go after your goals and create that awesome life you dream of. You fall somewhere in the middle; surviving but not thriving. On the outside you appear intelligent, successful, and happy, yet inside you carry the weight of frustration, unfulfilled potential, and defeat. It’s exhausting.
High functioning depression: a term increasingly used in popular psychology to describe the experience of low mood, low energy, and anxiety while outwardly maintaining the appearance of ‘having it all together’.
Positive psychology coaching draws insights and strategies from the science of wellbeing specifically targeted to support individuals that are frustrated with their current state of existence or experiencing high functioning depression. My goal is to help you move from surviving to thriving; living the happier, more fulfilled life you know you’re capable of and make a positive difference in the world.
Here you will find positive strategies to:
Uncover and bring into conscious awareness the limiting beliefs, destructive thought patterns, maladaptive coping strategies, and other negative habits of thought that are holding you back.
Empower yourself with new ideas, strategies, and thought patterns that will support you to make changes and take positive action towards your goals, dreams, and overall wellbeing.
Impact your own life and the lives of those around you, your community, and causes you care about with your new-found clarity, awareness, and positive strategies.
I’m Louise, and I’m a positive psychology coach. I specialize in helping people that are intelligent, successful, and experiencing high functioning depression move from surviving to THRIVING, so that they can live the happier, more fulfilled lives they dream of and make a positive difference in the world. I created this website to share knowledge, training, and insights from the science of wellbeing (A.K.A positive psychology) to help you uncover what’s been holding you back, replace your negative thought patterns with empowering, supportive ones, and go out into the world with clarity, purpose, and confidence to create a positive impact in your life and in the lives of those you care about.
I’m a self-confessed personal development junkie, fueled by my own search for answers to overcoming high functioning depression. experiencing more happiness, and reaching my full potential. I believe that to give more in life, you must first become more, and dedicated my working career to the education and nonprofit worlds. My experiences have shown me that my purpose and ability to create the greatest impact is in facilitating the growth of others and creating an exponential positive difference in the world.
My qualifications and experience
I’m originally from the UK but now live in the United States (which is why you’ll notice I switch between British and American spellings throughout this website!) I have a bachelor’s degree in human psychology, with a special interest in positive and energy psychologies, and a master’s degree in organizational management. I’m also a trained domestic violence counselor-advocate and counselor-advocate trainer, and hold several coaching certifications including neuro-linguistic programming and life purpose coaching. I’m a Reiki Master, and love camping, yoga, and anything cute and cuddly (my personal Facebook feed is basically just puppies / rabbits / otters / hedgehogs / anything snuggly).
