Dr Suzy Green
Starlight is all about positivity, so we are delighted to welcome Founder of The Positivity Institute, Dr Suzy Green as a Starlight Ambassador.
Suzy is a Clinical and Coaching Psychologist and a recognised leader in the complementary fields of Coaching Psychology and Positive Psychology. She conducted a world-first study on evidence-based coaching as an Applied Positive Psychology and received an International Positive Psychology Fellowship Award.
The Positivity Institute aims to create flourishing lives and increase well-being. With a strong focus on research and the application of Positive Psychology in everyday life, Suzy is committed to further adding to the knowledge base of Positive Psychology. Suzy has published in the Journal of Positive Psychology and has lectured at the University of Sydney for ten years.
Now as an Ambassador, Suzy brings that expertise to Starlight. All our programs embrace the principles of positive psychology where fun is an important factor in contributing to a child’s overall wellbeing.
Suzy said it was this approach that inspired her to get more involved with Starlight.
Having herself worked with many schools to help support the wellbeing of young people through positivity programs, Suzy said Starlight felt like a natural fit.
I'm so excited to become a Starlight Ambassador and to support an organisation that has Positive Pysch at its heart.Dr Suzy Green
