She is also strong in perseverance and will stick to the bitter end to get the job done.

I’m passionate about Positive Psychology because …
I love working and believe everyone can and should love their work too. I want to help people (re)discover what’s meaningful in their working lives so they can maintain their independence for as long as they want.
Pam’s PP gurus
Dr Kirsten Neff. When I read “Self Compassion” I learnt to stop constantly beating myself up.
Kelly McConigal. Her work on will power and reframing stress has been hugely beneficial to me.
Sir Ken Robinson. Not really PP but he is irreverent, thought provoking and influential in a good way.
In my spare time…
I savour time with my family; play tennis with vigour rather than any particular talent; and read constantly.
What the Practitioners say about Pam:
Pam initially approached Positive Psychology from a no non-sense point of view: the smart skepticism shining through lots of her questions and comments. Using her strength of perseverance she stuck with it even when there were trials and doubts and applied the concepts one by one in her life. And then slowly at first but unmistakably towards the end of her masters she transformed herself. It’s easy to preach and tell others what to do. It’s a tremendous achievement to set aside life-long experiences and change yourself. Pam is inspirational that way and may not even know it.
