What is positive psychology?

Positive Psychology is the scientific study of the strengths that enable individuals, organisations and communities to thrive.  The field is founded on the belief that in the main, most people want to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, to cultivate what is best within themselves and to enhance their experiences of love, work and play.

What are strengths?

Strengths are an underlying quality or qualities that energises you and that you are great at or have the potential to become great at.

Strengths are like superpowers that once understood and optimised, help you to live a happier, healthier, more fulfilled life. They are also the secret ingredient for finding and doing work that you love.

What clients say

Lisa mentored us through fairly early stages of our business. She challenged us constantly and asked difficult questions that we probably wouldn’t have asked of ourselves which demonstrated her knowledge and experience of working within start up operations. It turned out to be our most successful year of trading to date and I have no doubt that Lisa contributed to that success.

Richard – Managing Director

I have known Lisa for a number of years. She has provided me with sound career development advice and coaching support during that time. Lisa is professional and assured, and always provides superb insight and perspective.

Nick – Senior Director Strategic Partners 

Lisa has been a great help and support whilst being my business coach. This has enabled my business to grow and go from strength to strength. She knows the recruitment business inside out and with her strong strategic advice I would recommend Lisa to anyone who is looking for support to accelerate his or her business.

Lissa – Managing Director

Highly professional and dedicated to individual career progression and enhancing team performance. Having worked alongside Lisa in various capacities for over 15 years I can highly recommend her in either a coaching or consultancy capacity.

Mike – Sales Director

An absolute professional with authenticity and continuous improvement in all that I have experienced with Lisa. Very much a "people grower" which naturally shows through. Is able to adapt to a mix of industry types which of course is an absolute asset. Highly recommended.

Narinder – Head of HR

Lisa is incredibly down to earth and personable - making her coaching relaxed and enjoyable. However, she knows just the questions to probe and challenge! I was able to structure my actions and push myself to reach exactly the results I was working towards.

Tom – Managing Director

Lisa is tenacious, focused, dedicated and highly professional in her approach to coaching. I would strongly recommend Lisa to anyone searching to achieve more.

Joanne – Head of HR

Taking time to reflect on what it is that energises you, really helps focus the mind on what will be the best next move. Advice on the CV and LinkedIn profile was in valuable, I learnt a lot. I have worked with Lisa over a number of years and her expertise in this field is second to none

Chris – Commercial Director Europe

Better understanding my strengths made it very obvious why I have a stronger preference and ability for certain task and those tasks that I should delegate to member of my team.

Paul – Technical Director

Lisa's coaching skills really helped me to understand my strengths and where I might be using these in overdrive. Lisa also helped me to recognise my inner voice and when it may not be correct or helpful. As a result, I feel more aware, more reflective and in control of my business.

Karen – Managing Director

Lisa is naturally warm, intellectually stimulating and a phenomenal coach, I was rejuvenated by talking through my changes and what I truly wanted to do differently. I wanted to embrace creating more space for myself to bring true balance into my life and do fulfilling work which didn’t suffocate this ambition. Through coaching, I flourished by emphasising my creative talents and significant strengths to attract more meaning and purpose. I was able to create a forcefield of positivity and magnetic energy to follow my heart and make my dreams become distinct possibilities. .

Oonagh – Chief People Officer

Lisa is an excellent coach and importantly a lovely person to spend time with. I had a 6 session series of coaching over a period of three months. Lisa has a wealth of knowledge, tools and relevant experience. It pushed me beyond my comfort zone but that was the point and it was achieved by creating a safe space of trust, authenticity and integrity. We also had fun, laughed and got to know each other. I really valued the focus on my strengths and how that framed my thoughts, allowed me to develop and re-find my confidence! Setting goals for what I wanted to achieve and looking back at the end it has been a great experience and one I will I'm sure come back to as I progress..

Karen – Assistant Director People & Culture
