She loves being a Wildheart – so much more confident in her ability and more willing to try. She was tying herself up in knots with worry and calling herself rubbish, which broke my heart. The other morning, we were getting ready for school and I was panicking. She said: ‘Mum, put your hand on your heart and go inside!’ It made me giggle and stop stressing! We’ve all learnt so much in a short space of time. Thank you!

“I thought he wasn’t listening, so I took your advice and got the journal. You were right, he likes to play or doodle while he listens. He’s such a deep thinker – it takes him a while to work out what you’re saying. You don’t rush them, and I’ve learnt from you not to step in and answer for him. He might listen to one episode a few times before he says something that blows my mind!! It’s totally on his wave length and he loves that quiet time after a hectic school day. I can get my stuff done while he listens and I’m a happy Mummy too!”

“Your kids need this – and they’ll love it. Can’t recommend these podcasts or anything Lisa does highly enough. She understands the struggles that our kids are facing and she has an authentic, lighthearted and fun way of connecting to them as she delivers her message. These podcasts help to reassure your child and to give them the tools they need to deal with their worries and to feel good about themselves – skills for life.”

“She really listens to you, takes it all in. She’s not big on journaling, colouring in, or listening to any other podcast, but you, she loves! It was a couple of years ago that a friend sent me your link on Facebook, and I am so very grateful she did! We love love love Truly Madly Smiley. It’s easy for my 10-year-old to navigate herself whenever she needs to. She tends to listen before she goes to sleep at night. Honestly, they have really helped us through some difficult times.Thank you for all your amazing work. You are a brilliant coach and I’ve recommended you to so many people.”

How it works



How do I introduce Truly Madly Smiley to my child?
  1. Make it an exciting reason to have some quality time together or casually pop it on while you go about your day and lead by example.
  2. Download the free podcast guide to get yourself set up  – it’s easy but like anybody trying anything new it will feel hard because you haven’t done it before! Move through your discomfort by taking action.
  3. Have fun with it and don’t take it too seriously. Keep it light and don’t try to control outcomes. Let your child explore, choose episodes and lead the way.
  4. Don’t worry about getting it wrong – there is no right way to do it, or one particular episode that is going to magically transform your life. Just start and notice the positive difference over time. That’s how real lasting changes are made.
How do we know which episode(s) will help my child most?

People and their problems are complex but the solution is simple.

Developing your child’s emotional learning and ‘making friends’ with the podcast – listening little and often –  to build on knowledge and skills is the key to resolving any struggle. Whether it’s the pressure of school, sibling rivalry, an inability to sleep or settle at night time, overcoming fears, worries, intense emotions, dealing with change, friendship dramas etc. These are just some of the topics I tackle on the podcast.

This is because all behaviour is driven by emotions and all emotions are driven by thoughts. So whatever your child is struggling with they need help with their emotions and their view of the world (beliefs, thoughts and perceptions). Lasting change doesn’t happen overnight – even adults are listening to the podcast and learning more. Many of us were not taught this growing up. So now is the time – life gets much easier when you understand this missing piece to your happiness puzzle.

What do I do if my child is resisting the podcast

All resistance is fear. They may fault find and say it’s babyish. They may feel uncomfortable with all the feelings certain episodes bring up. They may appear disinterested or not want to engage. They may oppose you and get into a power struggle.

When we are scared we need to feel like we have some control. This blog post explains how to move beyond fear and gives you a script of what to say if you’re being met with resistance. It works for any situation where your child won’t co-operate. 

Go slow, give choices and keep trying. If it’s not their thing, don’t worry! I’m not everybody’s cup of tea. If you still like it and are learning, there’s nothing to say you can’t still listen.

What if my child won't sit still and listen?

Children learn best when they are relaxed and free. Can you have it on in the background while you bake, create, do chores, prepare meals, are in the car? Persevere and give them time to find a way that works for them. Lots of children like to journal and listen. Even though they appear distracted, it doesn’t mean they are not listening!

REMEMBER: Any resistance is fear (see above Q). It may well be that they feel overwhelmed by their feelings. Feelings come up to be felt and understood. Take a break. Give them choices. Try not to get into a power struggle with them and make it a negative experience.

How does the backstage forum work?

The backstage forum is behind a paywall. It’s completely safe and not open to the public. Once you’ve logged in to your account you can comment, follow threads about popular posts and ask Smiley questions. Posting will be done by parents. Creative Wildhearts will be able to share their journaling artwork and Wildhearts will feel reassured by a strong community that is cheering them on! There is no pressure to comment and post if you’d rather not.

I'm an educator, can I use this in my work?

Yes! I want to help as many children as possible feel good. Subscribe to the professional membership. Coming soon, we will have lesson plans to support professionals.

Yes, it works on all devices that connect to the internet – phone, tablet, laptop, computer etc. You can either listen from the website or stream from your favourite podcast app.  Watch this video and come for a guided tour backstage. You’ll see how easy it is to access all the exclusive episodes as a member.

What if we are trying to reduce screen time?

It’s a smart move as screens are highly addictive and require limits, but screens are an integral part of your child’s world. Listening to the podcast is a productive and educational use of your ‘digital time’ and could also be used as family time too. It doesn’t require you to look at a screen at all because the messages and my energy are going straight into their ear buds.

Remember a child’s brain is like clay and all the messages they hear are shaping their belief system and how they see the world. Every day they are bombarded with new information and things to learn – from you, the media, school and other external influences. It’s essential to make sure these are age-appropriate and have a purpose. Truly Madly Smiley is full of purpose and is written to ensure your child is hearing the messages that will lift them up and prepare them to excel in life. 

Smiley Tip: If you don’t allow screens in the bedroom, you could connect wireless speakers to your device (tablet, Kindle  or iphone) and stream it from another room.
