Do you want to become a positive psychologist, therapist, life coach or counsellor? This is a career that empowers women, and there are awards to prove it!
It’s an exciting time for women in psychology, counselling and the life coaching profession, as a Doncaster positive psychology and wellbeing speaker has been featured in The UK’s 100 Most Inspiring and Multi-Achieving Female Entrepreneurs.
This list is part of the Small Business Britain’s f:Entrepreneur #ialso100 campaign, which recognises the incredible achievements of women who have proved to be critical to society during the COVID-19 pandemic.
South Yorkshire based Frederika Roberts, founder and managing director of Educate to Flourish CIC, has been named in this list, helping to shine the light on the important work conducted in this relatively new psychological field.
About Educate to Flourish
Helping young children grow and thrive in schools, Educate to Flourish is a social enterprise dedicated to using positive affect psychology and character education tools for long-term development.
Through positive education, children are taught essential life skills that will benefit them in and out of the classroom, giving them the chance to flourish beyond their years in education.
Not only do Frederika’s achievements highlight the importance of applied positive affect psychology in the younger generation, but it’s an acknowledgement of female empowerment, celebrating women in a time where the gender gap still exists.
Did you know that 9 out of 10 parents want positive education to be offered in schools and two thirds of Parliament also support this type of education?*
Women in counselling and coaching
There are already many women working in counselling, talking therapies and life coaching. But the demand is still high because of the gender gap and the prevalence of gender issues.
Many people turn to a life coach because they are unsure of the direction they are going in, and this usually stems from their career or other aspects of their life. A positive life coach can help to build their confidence and see their challenges, goals and achievements in a constructive way.
If you want to make an impact like award-winner Frederika Roberts, and many other female counsellors and coaches in this field, our course could help you expand your skills.
