Testimonials

Dan Curran“Over the past decade I have known Therese to be a dedicated and passionate leader who is able to bring out the best within a team.  It is both her demonstrated leadership experience and her outlook on life that led us to engage Therese to provide training in our 11 locations across North America.  I am confident to recommend her to develop and deliver comprehensive training programs for the business setting.  Her workshops are engaging, informative, and filled with humour and wisdom.  She is able to motivate and inspire positive change in any group of people.  Therese also succeeds at addressing specific areas of concern within the organisation, including working with challenging staff members.  Her years of successful management experience brings an added depth to her trainings.  In short, she has walked the walk;  which brings great credibility to her creative suggestions.  Therese carefully evaluates her work throughout and provides thoughtful feedback on what participants learned and what they need for sustained growth.  She has greatly exceeded our investment in helping our teams to increase their own resilience and better deliver excellence in customer service.”

joanpainter“Therese has an extensive knowledge of Positive Psychology and a distinctive ability to apply theories and research to real life situations with creativity and remarkable insight.  Immediately after completing the MAPP, Therese joined the academic team at the University of East London, to develop webinars and online training activities for the distance learning MSc. program, and to supervise student research.
Her dedication to bringing out the best in others, and to motivate and inspire, is evident in her passionate, authentic approach.  She was a true leader within the MAPP program and has outstanding interpersonal skills. Therese’s attitude to work and life is one of diligence and playfulness.  She also has an excellent sense of humour and was a delight to have on our team.  I would not hesitate to recommend her to work with any organisation.

James Reilly“Therese is an enthusiastic professional who is dedicated to staff wellbeing and to creating productive, thriving teams.  As part of an NHS approved research project, Therese investigated the effects of employee relations, motivation and engagement and their impact on absenteeism.  She was able to work with our Organisational Development team to advise on strategies for increasing resilience.  Therese has a thorough understanding of relevant findings in workplace psychology and was quick to appreciate the dynamics and challenges of a large organisation such as the Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust.  Her approach was at all times professional, constructive, and sensitive to the needs of the various departments in the largest NHS Trust in the UK, and we gained valuable insight from her contribution.

Tiff Missiha“Therese has a gift of using her creativity in a professional context to deliver innovative, unique, and engaging outcomes. She is attentive to the details and qualities that make you unique, and is able to support in ways that complement your unique strengths. She takes the time to really get to know the people she works with. I believe this is what makes her a talented consultant and mentor.
As a fellow team member on a consultancy project, I have seen how Therese uses her expertise in positive psychology, combined with her extensive managerial experience, to bring ideas to life in an innovative and practical sense that adds real value to any group or organisation. I have yet to see something Therese cannot deliver exceptionally. Her boldness, energy, and curiosity in her work sets her apart and makes her a true leader in the field.”

Mel SmithTherese is warm, friendly, highly knowledgeable and an ideal candidate for working with children and families to improve wellbeing.   Her ability to connect with students and her talent at teaching even complex concepts, are truly superior.   She is thoughtful and hardworking; nothing short of a modern day oracle because she is so inspirational. As a classroom teacher at an inner-city London school, I asked Therese to work voluntarily with some of the children in my class, teaching them how to use their strengths, goal setting and mindfulness. The results were tremendous and the children undoubtedly improved their academic results and became noticeably happier.  I recommend Therese without reservation to work within schools and communities.”
