Asami approach of Engagement Psychology
Lisa is the director of Asami Engagement Psychology that supports individuals, families, communities and organisations with enhancing their fulfillment and wellbeing. I support people to enhance their most important asset, their health and to ensure their relationship, lifestyle or employment isn’t damaging it. I believe that you shouldn’t have to sacrifice your health and happiness to earn a living or have a fulfilling life. Barriers to your wellbeing are diverse – work life/balance, time management, work dynamics/conflict, relationships, parenting, self confidence, mental health, physical fatigue & emotional exhaustion. Asami offers a supportive and strategic approach by completing a holistic assessment of what is impacting your health and happiness. Because, healthy people lead to healthier families and workplaces, and therefore healthier and more functional communities and society. And the best part is, my unique process is achievable and sustainable with simple and manageable steps.
