A Centre for Research in Human Flourishing seminar

Speakers: Jen Holland, Fiona Ryan and Ornella Tohme

This seminar aims to introduce The Human Flourishing Project (HFP), which is a person-centred community interest organisation, offering psychotherapy to the community of Nottingham, founded, and run by staff and students within the counselling programmes at University of Nottingham. During the last six years we have utilised the data collected within the project to help continue to inform our understanding about what happens between clients and therapists. Fiona, Ornella and Jen will describe some of their research and findings in a symposium presentation.

Jen Holland is Assistant Professor in the School of Education and a member of the Centre for Research in Human Flourishing. Jen was a founding member of the HFP. Her research focuses on the person-centred approach and positive psychology, with interests in posttraumatic growth and well-being.

Fiona Ryan is a graduate of the MA Person Centred Experiential Counselling and Psychotherapy Practice (PCECPP), a therapist within the HFP and is currently the Clinical Lead of the HFP. Her research interests involve understanding how person centred therapy impacts clients in the long term.

Ornella Tohme is a graduate of the MA PCECPP, and now a doctoral student within The Centre of Human Flourishing. Ornella’s interests include building bridges between positive psychology and person-centered therapy. She has experience in various organisations working with adults. Her approach to therapy is person-centered interpretation in three core conditions: empathy, congruence, and unconditional positive regard.
