Rather than hear it from us, on this page you can learn how our products are helping practitioners like you directly from our customers.

Peter Ferreira Executive Coach

I use the Toolkit© very regularly with my coaching, facilitation, and even on a personal level. It makes my offering more valuable, and I get results. This, in turn, helps my brand, which leads to more business. I don’t do any marketing and have more work than I can handle.

Nataisha Revoy, PCC Leadership and Team Coach
Katie Miley, Psy. D Co-founder at Miley Performance Group, LLC

The Life Navigation© Box Set is a clever way to contain so much material in a clean-looking package that’s easy to display. I’m proud to have the logo to display in person or on my bookshelf behind me for virtual presentations-it adds credibility.

While I do most of my work virtually with digital files, it’s so helpful to have books and materials at my fingertips, and so much easier to organize presentations and have props for discussions that are accessible. I downloaded copies of the materials from the Life Navigation© training online, but I like the convenience of flipping through the box and cards to organize and customize materials for presentations. I hope you find the box set an asset for your practice too.

Melissa Bordogna Managing Director GEdNeT Pty, Ph.D.

The Emotional Intelligence Masterclass© is just brilliant! The course is very thorough with easy to digest video lessons alongside professionally developed supporting materials and resources which saves me time and money in my mentoring practice.  Positive Psychology Program is my trusted source for my own professional development in the discipline as well as tools and resources to use with my clients.

Rosalind Tyburski Coach & Change Manager

The Positive Psychology Toolkit© has a lot of great information and ideas that can be readily used. I am currently working as a Change Manager for a very large global corporation; additionally, I have a small private coaching business on the side. I like that the toolkit contains things that I can use in both cases! Sometimes, I find that the tool may not exactly fit the situation I’m coaching, but it will usually get me close enough and I can adapt to the need at hand.

Michael Bloomquist, Ph.D., LP Professor of Psychiatry, University of Minnesota

The Life Navigation© series is useful for practitioners who are working with “at-risk” people or folks who are trying to enhance personal development, but it can also be infused with psychotherapy, in working with people who are having mental health problems. This framework has helped to organize the field of positive psychology.

Ilona Boniwell, Ph.D. Founder of the European Network of Positive Psychology (ENPP)

A groundbreaking all-in-one practitioner resource, the Positive Psychology Toolkit© contains decades of relevant research and practice. Armed with the Toolkit’s science-based exercises, interventions, assessment tools and down-to-earth advice, you’ll be well prepared to handle the issues thrown up by the real world. I recommend the Toolkit to all my MAPP students and trainees in positive psychology coaching.

Dimitra Mousioli, MSc Lawyer

I would recommend these exercises not only to positive psychology practitioners but to school teachers, students, parents, and every other person who struggles with happiness.

The 17 Happiness and Well-Being Exercises can help clients live a more positive life along with advice on how to apply them in the most efficient way.

Brooke Schnittman MA, PCC, BCC CEO/Founder of Coaching with Brooke

I have used the Maximizing Strengths© masterclass to help my clients learn their top 5 strengths and maximize these to live a less stressful and chaotic life by focusing on what energizes them. My 7 coaches and our 100 active clients use these tools to feel more confident. I have seen individuals come back up to three years later saying they are still maximizing their strengths to live a more empowered life.

Laura Soko Trainer, Entrepreneur

Sometimes business people don’t relate to positive psychology. They’re suspicious of it. They wonder how it’s really going to help them in their work. After following the Meaning & Valued Living Masterclass©, I feel confident explaining to management how to create an atmosphere that promotes well-being and meaningful work and makes a direct connection with the bottom line. This can be a magnet for attracting top talent.

Bryan Yates

I truly appreciate how you’ve laid out Mindfulness X©. It’s even giving me ideas on how my cycling enthusiasts can use mindfulness to create a more organic connection to their bikes and their sport. Thank you so much.

Bozkurt Cendey Professional Coach
Charika Teillet Coach

The Motivation and Goal Achievement© masterclass helped me to become authentic with myself and my approach, to get genuinely interested, ask the tough questions kindly from myself and others, and truly attempt to understand life: emotions, feelings, and thoughts as a whole, and to become friends with what is not desirable. Hugo’s delivery was very effective and powerful.

Marc Castricum, Ph.D. Business Owner

At first, I wasn’t quite sure whether this masterclass was for me because I’m not a therapist and mostly work with business managers and employees. Soon I realized how much this knowledge will help to create an atmosphere at the workplace that will allow everyone to experience more meaning and feel more fulfilled at the end of the day.

Grace Olha Leadership Coach

The Realizing Resilience© masterclass really helped me to create practices for clients who are still adapting to the effects of the pandemic on the work environment.

Tammy Sulik Psychologist

In The Science of Self-Acceptance Masterclass©, Hugo has yet again brought in a lot of research. As a psychologist, I really appreciate that there are evidence-based practices that have been focused on. I would definitely recommend this to other therapists.

Ryan M. Niemiec, Psy.D. Education Director of the VIA Institute on Character

This Toolkit© is a tremendous resource for the growing array of positive psychology practitioners who are interested in applying the latest tools. In addition, this toolkit is an outright goldmine for practitioners inside of the positive psychology field or brand new to it.

Denise Schaub, LLC Attorney, Certified Integrative Nutrition Coach, Founder of Caregiver Wellness

The Life Navigation© Masterclass Series is fantastic! Over the years, I’ve felt that I was spending too much time preparing materials because there was so much to organize. I love this framework…not only is it helpful to the client, but mastering this has brought me added confidence that I’m covering the big picture in a balanced manner. The slide of the lighthouse shining on the boat just brought it all home for me. Thank you!

Julia Karhu Leadertrainer

Best possible leader self is an amazing tool to start the development training for the leader, since it gives an optimistic view of possibilities. All tools are helpful since it all comes down to one main thing, reflection – which essential for a leader to develop into a better leadership. Great tools!

Anna Katharina Schaffner, PhD, RN, MSN, MBA Coach, Writer, Professor of Cultural History, Certified Executive Coach

Seph’s The 7 Pillars of a Profitable Practice is a must-read for any coach wishing either to set up or dramatically to scale up their business. It is full of extremely practical and directly applicable advice. Seph shares his wisdom on finding your purpose, niche and ideal clients, on marketing and websites, and on leads, info-products and client retention. I read The 7 Pillars in one go, rethought my entire approach to coaching, and immediately redesigned my website.

They are evidence-based, instructional, visually comforting, intuitive, and most of all… serve the purpose of bringing clarity and awareness!

Candice Sunney, MAPP, MBPsS, MAC Positive Psychology Practitioner, Workshop Facilitator & Speaker

Motivation & Goal Achievement© has artfully brought together the most relevant goal-setting and motivation research. It offers a holistic look at the person and the goal and what it means to motivate them. There is something here to explain every barrier to goal attainment and tools to move past them.

This masterclass is a CPD must-have for all coaches or anybody who works in people development.

My favorite masterclass yet!

Jenya Kuvshinova Emotional Wellness Coach
Karen Beard Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist

I teach people who smoke how to use resilience skills, self-acceptance skills, and personal strengths to give up using nicotine and find meaning and value in a nicotine-free lifestyle. I used the Life Navigation© Series to develop content for the tobacco cessation classes, and I am now getting requests to scale my program and train others on how to facilitate.

Dr. Megan Guenther Psychologist and CEO

All the materials are high quality, and I particularly appreciate the quality and the design of the handbooks. They are attractive enough to have on my desk for pulling out for a quick refresher between client sessions when I am writing notes, planning treatment, and preparing for my next sessions.

As a psychologist with over 15 years of experience in the field, it is not very often that I come across a continuing education opportunity that provides a comprehensive framework that is truly applicable to my practice and is a solid investment for not only improving my practice and my business but also truly enhancing the way I am able to meet the needs of my clients.

Steve Costello CEO

I was very pleased to discover the 17 Positive Psychology Exercises. I’ve been using tools like these for many years and have forgotten or lost many. It’s refreshing to be able to pick up these tools and put them to instant use. They are exceptionally well-presented and enable me to devote more time to the needs of my clients rather than searching for resources.

Janette De Vorre., PCC Leadership Coach

I’ve used the resources included in the 17 Positive Leadership Exercises toolkit and find them to provide simple, yet powerful support for Leaders who are committed to meaningful, connected leadership. I love the clarity and thoughtfulness, and the fresh, minimalist design of the worksheets. Executive and Leadership Coaches will appreciate that these resources really get to the heart of what’s important for leaders to be aware of. Make them part of your toolkit!

Edwyn Kumar Business Leadership Coach at Ultra Team Development

I have used multiple tools from the Toolkit©, especially in team meetings and workshops. For example, the Strength vs. Weakness tool was deeply impactful in highlighting the mental shift when teams are focused on one versus the other. I also use the Positive Team Timeline at quarterly’s retreats and AGM’s. I am able to assist clients with ready-built tools to get them moving in the right direction. The constant updates of new tools is incredible.

Marion Valster, B.Sc. MCA, Coach/Trainer

Unlike so many other resilience resources, the Realizing Resilience Masterclass© dives much deeper into the construct and provides excellent context.

Allison Cowan, M.Ed, PCC Life Coach at Purposeful Pathways Life Coaching

Your products are truly a lifeline for my coaching business. For example, I may have a client who likes “homework”. I have found that the supplemental materials actually boost a client’s forward growth more quickly when they are used. For myself, while I have great coaching skills, if there is an issue or a topic where I need more knowledge and/or understanding, I can always find what I need in the Toolkit©.

Evan Parks, Psy.D. Clinical Psychologist & Transformational Coach for Equip to Empower, LLC.

I love that although it is research-based, the language used is easy to comprehend (which is important when I’m working with my coaching clients). The use of The Sailboat Metaphor© framework makes it relevant and applicable to real life. I also found the exercises, questions, and techniques powerful and thought-provoking.

The 17 Positive Leadership Exercises are incredibly useful, especially in today’s L&D climate.

It is evident that a lot of research and thought has gone into creating this set of tools and I commend your team for their efforts.

I still get messages from former participants telling me how grateful they are for what this training has done for them.

I use the links and nuggets of the longer pieces a lot in my daily work with various teams and individuals at all levels. Great stuff.

Yvette Costa Executive Coach
Mari Carmen Psychologist and teacher

The 17 Happiness and Well-Being Exercises are great as they prompt immediate engagement from the client and help them realize a more positive attitude on a daily basis. On another note, a translation to other languages would be helpful.

These worksheets are very informative and easy to use. Most people I work with struggle with happiness, hence, the 17 Happiness and Well-being Exercises are a great tool to use in sessions and at home.

I work with both adults and youth and feel that these exercises are applicable to any age group.

Pam Alfrey Hernandez Psychologist

The Science of Self-Acceptance Masterclass© is an insightful program that beautifully synthesizes a vast amount of research on well-being. The sailboat metaphor offers a holistic approach to the science of happiness, which suggests we are enough (just as we are) to navigate the storms of life and flourish. If well-being is a self-led journey fueled by acceptance, this work is a life raft of wisdom.

The 17 Positive Relationships Exercises solve the “What would you like to talk about today?”(Therapist), “I don’t know…” (Client) quandary. I use them in almost 1/2 of my sessions and clients love them. They empower clients and therapists!

Jeannine Acantilado, RN, MSN, MBA Certified Executive Coach Elan Consulting Services

The Motivation & Goal Achievement Masterclass© really hits all the latest research and gives clear guidance on how to actually apply the principles to daily life. If you have clients who struggle with information overload, the tools in this masterclass are the perfect way to get them started with exercises that inspire and motivate.

The Maximising Strengths Masterclass© is a highly practical and engaging evidence-based program that turns the focus toward your core qualities and away from your weaknesses.

I’ve expanded my awareness of my strengths and practiced utilizing them more in my daily life. I’m now ready to start offering strength-based coaching and workshops to all my clients so they too can regain power in their lives.

Catherine J Burdett, CPCC, PCC Certified Coach, Workplace Mindfulness Facilitator

The Mindfulness X© program in and of itself is so well designed and I enjoyed completing it earlier this year. Truth be told, I was feeling stuck in terms of marketing the product and I come from a sales and marketing background (not so much in the digital world though!). Now, I feel confident and capable with this additional toolkit. There is absolutely every reason to activate the program now and bring tools and techniques to those who are ready to roll! Thank you, Hugo and the Positive Psychology Team.

The 17 Happiness & Well-Being Exercises really helped me and my clients to take a fresh look at their lives. Each exercise, despite its simplicity, works with tremendous depth.

Lennart Gehl, MSc. Flow & High-Performance Coach

This book precisely summarizes how to rethink a coaching practice as a coaching business. It feels like one is given a long-needed leg-up. Every practitioner who is on the lookout for a framework that walks one through the jungle of building a resourceful, state-of-the-art, online-driven and yet sustainable coaching business, should read this.

Rae MacDonald Courageous Conversation Coach

As I do not have a psychology background, I have purchased most of the “17 Collections.” I love that they are varied; each one is explained in detail about how to present to my clients, as well as what to look out for, so that my clients feel safe and experience growth.

I can trust these resources to help with the transformation my clients want. I LOVE them! 

Sarah Murphy Coach and Trainer

The 17 Productivity and Work Efficiency Exercises were comprehensive and are very helpful for many, both professionally and frequently in one’s personal life. I can see many situations where I can use them within my own team, as well as with private coaching clients. 

Allison Cowan Life & Relationship Coach
Louise YT Phua Author

I am impressed with the careful planning of your learning materials. I appreciate the level of research and thought that goes into each tool. Highly recommended for practitioners.

Marina Rodríguez Conesa Psychologist

The 17 Strength-Finding Exercises have helped me a lot to inspire my daily job. You can use them as they are, or just the part that you think suits a single client best. They have also helped me to create further actions or interventions. It is completely worthwhile.

David Germeau, Msc, HLCII Health Plan Designer

Since I do not have a formal education in psychology, I need tools, such as the 17 Meaning & Valued Living Exercises, to support my coaching. It allows me to proceed with the client and see if more professional support is required. I really like the format (clear and precise) and the easy use of each exercise.

David Penglase, MBA Behavioral Scientist and Author of Intentionomics

Whether you’re a veteran life coach, relatively new to coaching or thinking about starting out as a coach, in The 7 Pillars of a Profitable Practice, Seph opens up the doors to his years of invaluable experience and provides a blueprint on how to build a successful coaching practice, sharing the 7 pillars upon which he built – his world-class, evidence-based, online life coaching and life coach support resource centre.

Dr. Richelle Anderson Clinical Psychologist

The 17 Positive Psychology Exercises are a great resource for my coaching and counseling work as well as for presentations I give. It’s great to have everything packaged in convenient ways for client use and keeps me abreast of Positive Psychology developments.

Stephen R. Mills Corporate Trainer

This package has contributed measurably and immeasurably to the well-being of people with whom I interact. Their lives are clearer of purpose and more fulfilling in outcomes as well as processes.

Kyna Teresa Teei Author, Natural Therapist

Above and beyond once again. A gift of great value for many at this time. Clear & simple pillars to go from a job to a business and deliver quality over quantity. So happy to have read this and to have a copy. The value this brings… I have not seen a book like this as of yet. Practice those pillars and many doors of success will open. Thank you! This can make an amazing difference in the lives of many.

Paul Stuart Regional Head

The 17 Positive Relationships Exercises provide very clear instructions on how to use them. I particularly like the options/variations outlined for some of the exercises. There is a very clear explanation of the logic/theory behind each exercise.

Andra Costache Positive Psychology Practitioner & Coach

Being a newly practicing positive psychology coach, I was awe-struck by the concomitant simplicity and complexity of the Sailboat Metaphor and how well it brings together key concepts in positive psychology. I feel that the best evidence to clients is to be able to continuously discover something new every time I use it on myself. 

Deborah Hann

What a thoughtfully structured and considered set of Train the Trainer lessons in Mindfulness X©. Thank you for championing another wonderful research-based product!

Lorette Theron Industrial Organisational Psychologist

I find the 17 Productivity and Work Efficiency Exercises very useful with my coaching clients, and they come to significant insights into their ways of working and how they can change them.

Dr. Daniel Helix M.A., D. Min., BCPC, MMHC

As I started to pay more attention to resilience in my work as the Health Care Navigator (HCN) for a non-profit that serves Homeless Veterans, I noticed more and more people were doing the same thing! The information, the slides, and the overall presentation of Resilience X© are excellent. I have become a Hugo Fan through this association with Positive Psychology, and I recommend the site and the products to many of my fellow counselors.

Ingrid Ulbrich Author, Founder & CEO at Heart Inspired Coaching

The Life Navigation© program offered me valuable insights and information on how I can better help my clients. As a mindset coach, I have already implemented some of the tools used, and they have been received by my clients with such enthusiasm; it’s like a light bulb went off in their heads.

I’m so excited about the tangible hardcopy (The Life Navigation© Box Set) that is now available. If you’re anything like me, sometimes things get lost and scattered, so I definitely appreciate having these hands-on resources available. This program is definitely better than I ever could imagine. Thank you.

Olumide Famakinwa Soft Skills Trainer
Alison Rolfe Health Practitioner

These resilience exercises were fantastic for my own development, but also in helping clients to work through personal blocks. The 17 Resilience & Coping Exercises are clearly laid out, with guidelines and tips on how to implement and create discussion, as well as being easy to use. I highly recommend this package for anyone who wants to expand their resilience to life’s stressors.

Francis Saliba Regional Trainer Vacheron Constantin

The courses and toolkit provided are amazing resources for any trainer, coach, or practitioner looking for material founded on a scientific methodology, backed up by research. It is also filled with applicable tools that can be used to apply the theory. Hugo’s sincere approach distinguishes him and his team from a sales-oriented approach into a true value-driven approach.

Mark T. Johnson Learning Consultant (Facilitator)

I love using the 17 Self-Compassion Exercise to work with teams that are experiencing difficulties. It moves the conversation from “them” to “me” and works on compassion and capability rather than “fixing themselves”. The additional resources are great too!

Alessandra Perini Life Coach/PNL Pratictioner

As an ex-pat Coach, I find resilience a very important topic for the ex-pat women or men I usually coach. The 17 Resilience & Coping Exercises offer a variety of ready-to-use exercises that are well explained. Coachees find the exercises very inspiring and stimulating.

Sallie Martin

The material that Mindfulness X© provides is fantastic! I like the idea that you can tailor it to your style. The layout and aesthetics of the material are excellent. It’s great to have the transcripts and backup material.

Andre Robinson Psychotherapist

I am thankful to you for the resources. I cannot overemphasize how the 17 Positive Psychology Exercises have benefited me in the individual and group work I am currently involved in. This stuff does the work for you. You just have to present it.

Chrysoula Cherkeletzi, EMCC EIA Practitioner Business & Work Coach

Resilience X© is incredible! It includes everything we need to run our own program to assist our clients in developing, maintaining, and establishing resilience. If you are a coach, trainer, or therapist, I strongly recommend the Resilience X© program. It’s science-based and well-structured and includes a ready-to-use customizable program and a generous train-the-trainer guide by Dr. Hugo Alberts.

Natasha Facci, BBA Executive Coach, Facilitator

The 7 Pillars of a Profitable Practice Course is brilliant. It’s refreshing to finally read a practical and pragmatic guide to building and running a successful coaching business based on real lived experience. As I have begun to implement these pillars into my business, I have noticed real positive changes. Thank you for sharing your learnings with us, Seph.

Debra Heslin High-Performance Coach
Christina Lilly

I just finished the sessions of Mindfulness X© and loved it. It really elevated my concept of mindfulness and made the idea of it much less intimidating. 

Nadja El Fertasi Consultant, Founder Thrive with EQ

Every time I think that I have enough knowledge, I am humbled by the knowledge brilliant minds have to offer. The 7 Pillars of a Profitable Practice is by far one of the most practical, insightful and valuable books I have read on how to position and grow my business. As soon as I finished reading and got over my embarrassing aha moments, I felt a surge of excitement to change the way I market my services.

Vanessa MacDonald Renaud, CCC Counsellor & Psychotherapist

The 17 exercise workbooks have truly allowed me to see such growth in my clients in various areas, both personally and in significant relationships. These tools have allowed me to grow my business without burnout but with the utmost fulfillment.

Shalini Bindal Professional Coach

Using The 7 Pillars of a Profitable Practice Course gave me a new perspective on how to market my services as a Coach. I read it every time I feel the need to change my offerings. I was struggling with how to promote my coaching business without paying a bomb to the “digital marketers” out there. More than anything else, it broke down the whole marketing of coaching services into small, practical, doable steps. Currently, I am in the process of redoing my website based on my learnings from the 7 Pillars book. I can’t thank you enough for this truly wonderful book. It’s a blessing for coaches like me who have all the credentials and passion but don’t know how to reach their dream clients.

Dael Gunterman Personal Growth Coach & Senior Policy Officer

The Job Crafting Coaching Manual and workbook are excellent resources to help coaches and managers support their clients or employees. They contain many diverse examples of the different ways to craft jobs. Every section also contains advice on how to apply the learnings, common pitfalls and risks, and helpful tips. The workbook activities are also supported by examples making it easy to comprehend from the client’s perspective. As a coach and as a manager, I would highly recommend this!

Lynndal Daniels, MA, LMFT, BC-TMH, BCC Marriage and Family Therapist

The Life Navigation© program has been one of the most useful and educational training that I’ve ever had the pleasure of taking. The use of The Sailboat Metaphor© has been extremely helpful in my work with clients. 

One thing that stood out to me was ‘The Investment Model of Commitment’ in the Positive Relationships© Masterclass. That notion in and of itself has been so useful in my work that the entire program cost was paid for multiple times over!

Lavinia Pillay Cognitive Behavioural Therapist

Resilience X© is a must. Like all courses, Resilience X© is an amazingly in-depth, science-based tool. The richness of its contents, videos, slides, and workbook, not to forget the key advice and tips on delivering the training is the perfect, easy, and accessible resource to add to one’s toolbox and used for both one-to-one coaching and corporate workshops.

Kathryn Britton, MAPP Author, Executive Coach

Like many other coaches, I find marketing very difficult. My discomfort is particularly acute right now as I prepare to launch my own book. What a relief to dip into The 7 Pillars of a Profitable Practice by Seph Fontane Pennock. It is like having a partner by my side who clearly loves marketing and wants me to benefit from his expertise.

Subbalakshmi Kumar

Mindfulness X© is comprehensive and well-organized and has the basic materials required to prepare a program for others. Thank you very much for this. This gives us an idea of what needs to be covered in a course of this kind.

Laura Fernie Personal Development Coach

I really enjoy and all of the onsite resources that come with it. This is the best investment I have made in my practice.

Sandra Eggers Coach, Instructor, Speaker

Resilience X© is resource-rich and very easy to use. I love its “plug-and-play” adaptability that’s solidly anchored in research. As a coach and instructor who is not a therapist, I especially appreciate the intake form so that I can rest assured I’m serving clients appropriately.

Elijah Meason, CPSW Certified Peer Support Specialist
Kristi Seymor, LPC, MBA Clinical Therapist and Founder of Owner of Mountain River Counseling

I’m a licensed clinical therapist in Alaska, and I have been practicing for about 20 years. I have been using the tools for the last three years, and I can’t tell you how much I love them. They have added so much value to my practice. I recently got The Life Navigation© Box Set and could not be happier with the quality. Everything is outstanding. I cannot say enough about my happiness with
