Are you feeling overwhelmed by your strong-willed sensitive child’s big scary emotions?

It doesn’t always make sense and it feels like such hard work. You feel stuck. I can help you decipher what they mean and teach you and your child some practical ways to cope.

Worries –  Anger – Total Meltdowns

It feels out of control, confusing and you wish you knew how to make it better.

“Your child is so much more than their meltdowns and it’s important they grow up understanding and being connected to their feelings. All behaviour drives feelings. It makes more sense to help them with their feelings, instead of trying to change their behaviour.”


Hello! I’m so glad you’re here.

I’m Lisa – – you might know me as The Smiley Coach. My job is to show children their amazingness and help make growing up easier. Especially Wildhearts (strong-willed sensitive children). I’m a Wildheart too and grew up feeling like I didn’t quite fit in. My dream is to ensure there are LESS misunderstood, sad, lonely hurting children and MORE happy, confident and emotionally resilient ones.

Here’s the thing; I can’t make life more certain or the world safer

Instead, I can give your child the tools to cope and bounce back from life. I can help your child to learn from adversity and not let it negatively define them.


Make yourself at home!

Take a good look around. There are lots of ways you can work with me (this infographic will  get you started).


Want to get to know me better?

Virtually introduce me to your kids by tuning into the Truly Madly Smiley podcast or find me in The Energy Pod; my online coaching hang out for families who are committed to prioritising their emotional wellbeing.

Thanks for popping by. I hope we get to work together really soon as I know I can make a difference to your WHOLE family.

All you have to do is take the first step.
