What is positive psychology?
Positive Psychology is the scientific study of human flourishing and an applied approach to optimal functioning. The ‘good life’ and what makes life worth living, positive psychology focuses on the understanding and optimisation of strengths that enable individuals, organisations and communities to thrive.
The field is founded on the belief that 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.
In more recent times positive psychology has also moved to investigate and research some of the most difficult and painful human experiences offering the potential for growth, deeper meaning, resilience, hope and improved psychological wellbeing even in the most difficult of circumstances.
A growing area of human science, positive psychology is offering new ways of thinking and understanding to help people live healthier, happier and more fulfilled lives. To improve mental health, develop mental fitness and to more effectively deal with the daily challenges of life with resilience, meaning and purpose.
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 and strengths development are an integral part of positive psychology theory. Strengths are considered fundamental aspects of human nature that can be cultivated and developed to enhance life satisfaction, resilience, and fulfillment. Positive psychology emphasizes focusing on strengths rather than solely on weaknesses or pathologies.
What is coaching psychology?
Coaching psychology is a field that combines principles from psychology with coaching techniques to facilitate personal and professional growth, development, and performance enhancement in individuals and groups. It integrates the theoretical and applied aspects of psychology with coaching methodologies to help clients achieve their goals, overcome obstacles, and maximize their potential.
What clients say
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
A huge thank you to Lisa for her expert guidance over the recent months. It’s been invaluable in helping me make big changes at work, which then gave me the conviction to make a career move. Thank you so much!
Kieran – Partner
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 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
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

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
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.

Matthew – Consultant
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.
