Campbell MacBean, a Psychologist and Certified Gottman Therapist, believes you can connect with meaning, purpose and fulfilment given the opportunity.
Campbell has over 20 years experience working with individuals and groups. His guiding principle is that all humans can connect with meaning, purpose and fulfilment given the opportunity. He is influenced by the field of research in Positive Psychology which is the scientific study of the conditions of mental health and wellness, rather than simply the treatment of mental illness.
Campbell is a Member of Australian Psychological Society (APS), the leading professional body for Psychologists in Australia. In 2019 he achieved specialist qualification as a Certified Gottman Therapist with the Gottman Institute based in Seattle, USA. One of the reasons he did this was because of the very significant contribution John Gottman has made to the scientific knowledge of psychological health and wellness within couples relationships.
In 2008 he was asked to be one of the coaches in a 3-year study run by The Coaching Psychology Unit Sydney University, the first of its type in the world. This study, the Australian Research Council Linkages Project “Leadership and Coaching in High Stress Organisations”, is researching how leaders in large organisations can reconnect with inner purpose and develop as human beings, while creating positive emotional spaces for the people who work with them.
From 2003 to 2015 he worked extensively within organisations in Leadership Development. In 2009 he established Positive Mind, his private practice in Mittagong, NSW.
Since 2011 he has been a member of the Board for HarbisonCare, and has served as Deputy Chair since 2016.
