The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted us all across all aspects of our lives, forcing us to take stock and focus on what’s most critical – the mental, emotional and physical well-being of ourselves, our nearest and dearest and of course, those we serve.
The premiere edition of the Psychology and Counselling Summit 2021 will bring together mental health professionals across the world to absorb, appreciate and deliberate on the science of Well-being and how we can integrate it to build resilience and positivity.

Professor Philip Zimbardo is a true pioneer of psychology. Alongside his world-famous ‘Stanford Prison Experiment’ in 1971, he was previously president of the American Psychological Association and is now a Professor Emeritus of Stanford University. His study of human behaviour and wealth of experience make him one of the worlds leading speakers on human behaviour. After 50 years lecturing, Zimbardo retired from lecturing in 2008 – this will be one of his last ever lectures, an opportunity not to be missed
