Who are we?
Practitioners with PMW have been carefully screened and selected in order to offer you only experienced psychologists (minimum 3 years) with a wide variety of specialist skill sets and a diversity of backgrounds. During this process we also verify that every psychologist is registered with their national professional registration body, whether that is AHPRA (Australia), NZ Psych Board (New Zealand) or HPC (UK). All of this gives you easy access to a qualified specialist, right from the comfort of your own home. Check out what we stand for as a team by reading below.
What do we stand for?
Why is the word “Positive” so important for us?
- An emphasis on prevention and early intervention in order to minimise human suffering and loss.
- The importance of overcoming barriers experienced by individuals, companies and communities in accessing effective help at the right time.
- Potential of every human being to change and to continue learning throughout their lifespan.
- Strong relationships as the primary vehicle in helping others to learn new ways of thinking, feeling and behaving.
- When it comes to the importance of wellbeing, make informed and guided decisions based on up to date evidence and science rather than passing fads or popular trends.
- Respect for diversity of individuals, their cultures, languages, lifestyles, identities, ideologies, intellectual capacities, personalities, and capabilities to expand our learning opportunities and understanding of global connections
- Respect for confidentiality and privacy, we understand your need for privacy ensuring that your personal information is secure and treated with the upmost respect. Please see our below for further information.
Traditional psychology is heavily focused on the negative. One of the first questions you will face when seeing a psychologist (be it an organisational, clinical, couples, educational or behavioural psychologist) is something along these lines:
What is wrong /or what is not working?(either implied or explicit)
While this is undeniably an important question, a positive psychologist also wants to know what is going well. Identifying our strengths helps us to overcome our challenges. If we want to learn about optimal well being we need to study what is working well or people and systems that are excelling rather than focusing just on problems, deficits and losses.
