Gwyneth Jones, founder of Greenjoy

The Understanding Happiness workshop series in Prague has focused on:

  • Taming your Inner Critic
  • Developing Confidence
  • Building Authentic and Meaningful Relationships
  • Understanding and Dealing with "Negative" Emotions
  • The Nature of Happiness
  • Finding Meaning in Life
I use my background in Positive Psychology, coaching, and a lot of time spent researching, introspecting and speaking to others to put together workshops that act as a safe sharing space and an opportunity to learn useful skills and knowledge. My workshops are not a place for me to act as an expert and to tell you what to do, but rather a place where we can all learn and explore together. 

I also offer one-on-one coaching for those of you who want to go deeper into understanding yourself, reconnecting with what makes you happy, finding your confidence and building better relationships. My approach is a happy medium between scientific rigour and an openness to alternative approaches; I believe that some form of spirituality is important, but do not prescribe to any dogmatic approaches. I am also aware that some people have had very transformative results from 'alternative therapies', yet I disagree with the way that they are often promoted as a cure-all, and believe that we need to approach everything with a questioning, curious mind. 



"Gwyneth has been an enormous help over the last few months, while I've been managing a career change. I was burning myself out trying both to work my current job and keep too many options open for the future. It was very useful and pleasant to have Gwyneth to discuss my future with, and she was very good at getting me to choose one option, think of a concrete plan of things that need to be done, and stick to it. I'm very happy to have been one of her first clients. " Robin Adams, 34, U.K.
