Calm. Content. Courageous.

A 10-week emotional intelligence course that will transform your outlook, and your life.

You're tired of "being positive". You want to feel positive.


To loosen fear's grip and find greater courage. To be content with who you are, and where you are on your journey and find the self-belief to move forward.


You're in the right place.

The PositiveEQ course teaches you how to adopt a more optimistic mindset and become a more positive person in general.



By applying evidence-based positive psychology exercises designed to build your emotional intelligence - with the help of your personal coach.

"Improved my basic outlook on the world around me.


The PositiveEQ course is a one-of-a-kind emotional intelligence programme.

A common complaint of wellbeing courses is that they are not supportive enough for individuals to implement the tools on their own or sustain the changes made. After the course finishes, it's common to revert back to how things were before.

A common problem with coaching is that it works with one goal at a time, not going deep enough to work on increasing the ability to self-motivate, exercise self-discipline, and be more resilient to challenges (emotional intelligence). Since you are not equipped with the practical skills you would learn in a course, you often need to re-enter coaching every time you have a new goal or encounter a new problem.

The PositiveEQ course overcomes these problems by combining the practical learning of a course with the support of coaching. It works at a deeper level, building emotional intelligence in the context of intensive, personalised support. This means positive change that lasts long beyond the end of the course, and strategies you can keep applying on your own.

Practical ways to feel better.

Every week for 10 weeks, you'll learn emotional intelligence techniques you can use to motivate yourself, boost self-control, reduce fear, anxiety, and negative thinking, and improve your self-esteem over time.

Change at a deep level.

Rather than dealing with individual issues one after the next, we'll work to develop your underlying emotional resilience to improve how you cope with challenging situations in general.

You don't have to do it alone.

The PositiveEQ course is delivered in supportive one-on-one sessions with a coach, Kirsti Gwynn (MSc). Every week, you'll work together to ensure you're confident putting what you've learned into action.


10 one-on-one sessions with Kirsti Gwynn (MSc),

emotional intelligence specialist and coach.


Every session of the course is taught and coached by Kirsti.

  •  10 - 15 minutes will be spent making sure you understand the emotional intelligence framework we're learning that week 

  • Then, we'll have a 45-minute coaching session where we'll adapt the learning to your unique context and you'll learn how to apply it within your life


Sessions usually take place once a week.

Kirsti Gwynn holds an MSc in Applied Positive Psychology & Coaching Psychology and a BHons in Counselling Psychology. She has worked with individuals, organisations, schools, and charities to develop wellbeing and emotional intelligence, including Mind, the UK's leading mental health charity.

"I would highly recommend [Kirsti] to anyone wishing to gain a new perspective on life and how to respond to all the challenges that it throws at you. 



1 hour per session, delivered weekly online via Skype or in person in London.

Week 1 | Discover Your Personal Strengths

Research shows that individuals who often use their strengths are up to 18 times more likely to have "flourishing" wellbeing than those who don't, so we begin our journey with a scientific strengths assessment and insight session. Knowing your strengths will help you to feel clear about who you are and what’s important to you, so you can stay true to yourself. You'll also learn how to use your strengths to increase motivation and energy. 


Week 2 | Find Your Happiness within Yourself

In this session, you’ll learn how to develop the kind of happiness that comes from within and feel more secure within yourself. Understand why negative emotions can get in the way of being yourself, and how you can tap into a sense of presence, calm, and positivity instead.


Week 3 | Change Your Mindset

This session will help you to feel more content with where you are in life so far, to let go of comparing yourself to others, and to believe in yourself enough to move forward on your goals. We’ll go deeper than individual limiting thoughts and beliefs, and instead look at how you can shift into a more resilient way of thinking as a whole.


Week 4 | Stop Worrying and Feel More Hopeful

Building on last week's session, you’ll learn to exercise greater control over your negative thoughts (worrying about what people think, taking things so personally, stressing about the future etc). Practice a technique to calm yourself down when you feel anxious and learn a way to shift your own perspective to feel calmer. All of this will help you to stop avoiding what makes you anxious and find the courage to take action.


Week 5 | Accept Yourself

So much of this course is really about you being able to feel good enough, but in this session we dive into it specifically. How can you be happy with who you are, feel more secure in yourself, and forgive yourself for past mistakes - all while remaining accountable? We’ll look at developing the kind of self-compassion that is genuine and grounded.


Week 6 | Enjoy the Moment You’re In

Have you ever felt like you should be enjoying something, but for some reason you just can’t seem to? In this session, you’ll learn how to connect with the good in your life using a technique that research shows to improve wellbeing, even when there aren’t that many enjoyable experiences.


Week 7 | Process Negative Experiences in a Positive Way

Do you feel confident that you’ll be able to cope if things go wrong? Unfortunately, certain responses to negative experiences can actually make you feel worse. In this session, you’ll discover the key to processing negative experiences in a healthy way that helps you to overcome them and get some good out of them in the process.


Week 8 | Bounce Back from Negative Experiences

Research shows that there are specific things that we can do to speed up the recovery after a negative experience and “bounce back” faster. In this session, you’ll develop a step-by-step recovery plan that you can follow to feel better during a hard time.


Week 9 | Get Clear on Where You’re Going

We bring everything together in this session, to give you a clear sense of direction and purpose going forward. I’ll coach you to uncover your deeper “why” and how you can use this to help you choose goals that leave you feeling fulfilled. 


 Week 10 | OPEN SESSION 

This is an open session where you are free to choose whatever you would like to work on, struggle or strength. There are plenty more techniques to learn than I’ve been able to include in this course! Please note that we may slot this session in at an earlier time if that works better for you.

Every session is tailored to you personally.

Emotional intelligence is a framework, not a cut-and-paste solution. Every client brings a unique set of goals and obstacles, hopes and struggles, thoughts and behaviours to the sessions. The PositiveEQ course works with you as an individual, simply from the framework of emotional intelligence.

Think about it like this.

Whether your goal is to start a business, find a romantic partner, or pursue a creative project, all of these goals require you to take courageous action. You need to believe in yourself, be able to motivate yourself, calm fears, anxieties and that voice that says, "not good enough...", navigate obstacles and recover quickly when things don't go as planned. 

The PositiveEQ course is collaborative: I teach you a framework, and you choose which situation in your life you'd like to apply it to. 

The goal is not to learn only to deal with that one specific situation, but to be empowered with a way of managing your emotions and behaviours that you can apply to any goal or struggle in the future.

You'll leave feeling calm and content, able to increase motivation, reduce fear, and find courage. You'll be more in control of your emotions - rather than the other way around.

"I was motivated and was encouraged by the progress I made over the following few weeks. What really impressed me the most was how Kirsti had the knack of coaching me as an individual, and not by a set of norms.

Is the PositiveEQ course for women or men?

I love working with both men and women. At the moment, it seems to be about a 50/50 split.

The PositiveEQ course is available to anyone from the age of 16 +.

How long are the sessions and how often do they take place? 

Our sessions will last 1 hour and take place once-a-week for 10 weeks. Of course, it's possible to shift things around holidays and other commitments. 


How do I know the course is right for me, or that I'll "click" with you as a coach?

You'll be able to get a better sense of me and how the course would suit you during our discovery call. If you don't want to sign up after this, that's totally fine. If I don't feel that the course is well-suited to you, I'll make a recommendation of what you might try instead or before doing the course.
