Positive Psychology isn’t just the foundation of her business, but the basis of her relationships, approach to adversity and general attitude towards life. Her positivity is contagious and she’s passionate about sharing it. Jen has been a facilitator and coach for over 10 years in the corporate world with clients spanning from Sweaty Betty to Taylor Wimpey.
