My guest on today’s programme is a Lisa Avery. She is a positive psychologist living in Barcelona. My conversation with Lisa was an inspiration, as she walks her talk and is clearly passionate about her life and work.
But our conversation was more than that, as we explore some of the science behind finding meaning.
Lisa is head of UK operations for Growing with Gratitude an international organisation dedicated to the empowerment of young people through positive psychology. It is about helping them uncover previously hidden strengths and tap into deep reserves of resilience.
She well established in the corporate world and is a coach at “Work is Vocation where she uses positive psychology to bring about change.
Our conversation is a story of women who followed her skills with languages and teaching and discovered a passion. That discovery changed her life direction.
In the programme, we get the science of happiness and Lisa explains the difference between Eudaimonic and Hedonic Happiness. And we look at the practical steps you can take to find your journey.
I hope you enjoy my conversation with Lisa Avery
