This practitioner thesis depicts my journey of Master of Professional Practice of exploring the way
to coach more effectively and profoundly. Specifically speaking, depicting my practice from a
positive psychology coach to a coach informed by a more integrated approach. In this thesis, I will
describe a model of positive psychology coaching, then the gaps I discovered and then introduce an
integrated model which integrate positive psychology with embodied coaching. I also describe
motivations, context, the potential impact of this change and end with a suggested new framework
of professional practice and future discussion.


Key words: coaching, positive psychology, positive psychology coaching, coaching psychology,
embodiment, somatic coaching, coaching approach
