About Tess Howells

Tess is a positive psychologist who is passionate about helping people live the best, happiest, most meaningful lives that are possible for them.

Having had a long-held interest in the science of happiness, neuroscience, ethics, nutritional and environmental medicine, Tess has worked extensively across Australia with public, private, not-for-profit and community managed organisations that were often dealing with “problems”.

Most of her work has been focused on assisting people to recover from illness – and find new joy and meaning in their lives.

For many years she has been inspired by the work of Dr Martin Seligman’s new approach for psychology that focuses on the factors that contribute to living our lives well, rather than focusing on problems. This approach has laid the foundation for her own personal philosophy and approach to working with both individuals and organisations and is the reason why her clients experience such transformational results.  Discover more …
