learn, grow, flourish

Helping you cultivate wellbeing to experience the sweetness of life and to persevere through hard times.

Our Philosophy

Wellbeing means better health, longer life, stronger relationships, greater academic success and better work performance.  It is synonymous with leading a rich and fulfilling life.  Well Beyond shares research-based techniques from the pioneering field of positive psychology in combination with age-old wisdom from yoga, setting you on a tried and true pathway to thriving.

Positive psychology is about focusing on what is good and right in our lives and building on these strengths for greater wellbeing. When we feel good, we function better.  And functioning better leads to greater resilience, the capacity to persevere through the hard times. That said, personal growth and change takes time, energy and focus. Our highest priority is to offer a safe and supportive learning environment for individuals to gain research-supported knowledge and tools to facilitate positive change, provided with compassion and understanding. Finding wellbeing is a journey, and we support this journey by helping individuals to learn, practice, reflect and integrate new concepts and behaviors into their lives.

Testimonials

I worked with Carolyn during her tenure as Executive Director at Arm In Arm. As a consultant bringing positive psychology practices to her team, I was impressed by Carolyn’s openness and willingness to embrace new ways of managing to transform her staff culture. Over several years, I witnessed the positive impact of her efforts to empower her staff and to create a collaborative, cooperative and creative work environment. With her MAPP education, Carolyn is well-equipped to help other organizations to do the same. - Robert Rosales, MAPP, LEAD Academy | Positive Leadership Consultancy

Carolyn is an amazing Facilitator! She provided four targeted virtual sessions with my Senior Team. The sessions were very engaging, and they helped us develop useful strategies in work-life balance, team building, stress management relaxation exercises and positive thinking techniques.

Positive Psychology was a new technique for my team and I. Carolyn took the time to get to know all of our team members, and she met us all where we were. We engaged in four sessions with Carolyn over a five-week period. We all loved it, and we were sad, when our last session ended. - Tay Walker, CEO, YWCA Princeton
