Arty Amarisa MSc, BSc(Hons) Psychology
You Deserve to Feel Great. I’m Here to Help.
Please accept my heartfelt gratitude for you recognising the connection between your mind and body. This is a stepping stone on your journey of self development.
My purpose is to work alongside you and be a source of motivation, confidence, and courage in this process of inner accomplishment. The approach I use is evidence-based and holistic with the aim for you to expand into your full potential.
My birth town is Gran Canaria a small island which is part of the Canary Islands. My ethnic roots are India, my dad was brought up in Suez Canal, Eygpt and my mother in Chennai, India. Being an only child I was loved immensely yet carried the responsibility live up to the expectations of my parents specially my father who suffered from undiagnosed vascular dementia since my childhood. Most of my life I felt I carried the heavy burden over my shoulders.
I came to the UK with a group of friends and studied in boarding school in another costal town Eastbourne for a couple of years. Since then I completed a 1st class degree in Psychology and an MSc in International Securities, Investment and Banking. I fulfilled my father’s dream and worked in the city for five years within International Asset Management Compliance in London. So I am really good making rules, writing procedures and breaking them too! I also gathered another five years of retail and commercial banking experience when I moved to Birmingham in a national building society. I responded to my calling of helping others which were the reason I pursued my degree in Psychology and I retrained in coaching and complementary health which I have been practicing since 2005 and teaching since 2016.
There are two major events that transformed my life, I gave birth to my still baby daughter Alma at 20 weeks and I lost my father exactly 8 weeks later, same day same time. After these life-changing events, I’m still standing with my head up high. Yes, there have been times that I could not feel the ground beneath my feet, but instead of falling, I learned to fly. This made me realise that I’m emotionally resilient and my calling in life is to help others build their own innate strength. A day does not go by that I do not remember the ones who I have lost yet grief has propelled me to give birth to Positive Harmony Psychology. I believe through psychology which is learning about your own self, you can make subtle changes to experience harmony in your lives. When you start living a life aligned to your values you realise that you are much lighter, positive, and happier. What else can you ask for during this short sojourn of human life?
My Approach & Philosophy
My beliefs are rooted strongly in evidence-based experience. Whilst I am continuously studying and keeping up to date with the current research, there is no substitute to one’s own experience underpinned by science. The techniques I share with others are backed by scientific research through clinical trials and / or published anecdotal evidence.
I strongly believe in the power of nature, simplicity and your own mind to help you be healthier both physically and mentally. Being a vegan, another being’s suffering cannot be the basis of my pleasure. I get pleasure in making others happy from a platform of empathy, honesty, and integrity. Above all my purpose is to be your mirror to reflect back parts of you that you are not aware of. This awareness is a catalyst in your own journey of self-development. I do not give answers to your existential questions (no one can) however I create the space for inner transformation to occur which consequently helps you live a happier life inside out.
