I am a registered psychologist (M.A.P.s) of nearly thirty years counselling experience ,a personal trainer and state level squash player with extensive training in positive psychology,, member of IPPA. etc etc and find that the reality of using these strategies with clients is not as easy as presented and wonder how many of these “tips” have been used with real people. I would be really happy to hear about some real evidence. Please let me know. What has been done and has it worked.

Hi Lyn!

I have written about 18 articles on this site so far, and I would be happy to discuss further any idea/tip you would like. Since you have posted your comment on my bio and not on a specific article, I am not sure which one(s) you are interested in. Could you please be more specific? It will be my pleasure to give you more details.

Our editors at http://www.MatureResources.net are very excited that Marie has been selected as one of our expert writers with her specialty of positive psychology.

As a monthly internet magazine and professional directory focusing on baby boomers and seniors, Marie brings us a variety of articles covering topics enhancing our readers’ personal and professional health and growth.

I just looked up Marie on Google and found the two highest rankings were her own website; Google rankings # 3 and #4 were from our website. That’s the power of internet article writing and online promotions. They work.

Thanks again Marie,
