What is Positive Psychotherapy?

Home » Treatment Therapies » Positive Psychotherapy

Positive Psychotherapy aims to help people lead more happy, fulfilling lives. Instead of reducing negative symptoms, therapists encourage people to think about and pursue what brings them happiness, meaning, and fulfillment. They work with you to build on your unique strengths and personal qualities.

Your therapist will get to know you by listening to your story and concerns with empathy. They will then encourage you to identify your strengths. These can be personal strengths, innate abilities, relationships, resources, or cultural strengths. They might then help you incorporate this knowledge into your current narrative about your problem or mental health concerns. By considering a viewpoint that includes your strengths, you’re more likely to focus on the positive aspects of your life.

Positive Psychotherapy’s goal is to instill hope within you so that you can become your own champion. This empowerment is gained by exploring the positive aspects of yourself and finding a balance of coping mechanisms that work for you.
