Pick my brain and make positive steps forward in your business or personal life.

I’m stuck. I don’t know. I can’t do that! I’m not sure.

IMAGINE if you had access to an expert for the day at an affordable price.

One who could help you get the ANSWERS to what’s keeping you awake at night.

And you could carry her around in your pocket, conveniently chatting as you go about your busy day. 


Treat yourself to:

a delicious day of discovery

Spend precious ‘me time’ reflecting and rambling via Voxer (read: Whatsapp for business). The freedom and space to discover how to make MAGIC in your life right now!

It’s as easy as this: you bring your questions and your struggles. I’m your cheerleader and I bring my superpowers of asking more questions (to get to the heart of the issue), creative ideas and intuitive insights.

You can pick my brain which isn’t just full of knowledge about family, relationships, business & struggle, but real lived experiences. 

Get the As to your Qs in a format that’s flexible to fit around your day with no pressure. This is one of my favourite ways to connect with you – it’s unhurried and leaves time for reflection and action in between messages.


What You’ll Get:

Your Discovery Day Guide

After you’ve booked, I’ll email this guide. In here you’ll find how to connect with me on Voxer, my top tips to get the most out of your day & some reflection questions to get you thinking about what you want to focus on for our day together.




Private 1-1 Support & Advice

Leisurely back & forth voice messaging with time for self-reflection and tea. Don’t worry, it’s NOT a 9-hour chat-athon. So if you’ve got stuff to do, it’s all good. It’s the space between the messages where you’ll find your magic.




Replay the Day

Your messages are stored – so you can listen to them whenever you need an encouragement boost! You’ll also have learned some of my nifty coaching tools for accessing your intuition, so you can always find your magic.

 What kind of things can we chat about?

We can chat about anything; mainly stick to a specific topic: could be work or personal. Here’s some examples of questions I’ve been asked before.

 ✔ Here’s my dilemma and this is what I think I should do, what do you think?

✔ This or that? When you’re overwhelmed with options and can’t decide.

✔ I want to set up a coaching business, where do I begin?

✔ I want to work with children doing what you do, can you tell me more about your qualifications and how you got started?

✔ Can you help me get started on writing my book? 

✔ Can we brainstorm some ideas for marketing my business?

✔ I’ve been wanting to do this thing for ages, but feel stuck, can you help me get started? 


✔ I’m putting off a tricky conversation with a client/friend/family member, can you help me find the right words?

✔ I’ve been thinking about changing jobs, but I’m scared to take the leap, do you have any advice?

✔ How can I stop doubting myself and worrying about what other people think of me?

✔ I think I’ve outgrown a career/home/relationship, can we talk it through so I can get clear on what I really want?

✔ How can I deal with situations that are draining my energy and people who don’t respect my boundaries?

✔ How do I get everything done on my to do list? The one at the bottom is always me! (hint: choose you and book this day!)


Hi I’m Lisa

Intuitive Wildheart + Mentor

They say that life is a book of chapters. Endings and beginnings that bring lessons and meaning. Never mind chapters! I’ve had more lives than a cat! Life is messy, complicated, and unpredictable. Endings bring deep sadness and beginnings require courage and faith. It helps when you’ve got a plan, a friend who can hold your hand and and an EXPERT who knows how to steer the ship. Cheese, tissues and laughter help too!

I’ve definitely mastered the art of making MAGIC FROM DARKNESS  (using sh1t to grow my own roses!). You can blame it on my Scorpio moon in my 8th house of transformation. (Aquarius Sun and Aries Rising if you’re interested!). I left a well-paid corporate job to set up a successful coaching business, I started a podcast, wrote a book, created online courses, designed journals, overcame childhood trauma, ended a lot of one-sided friendships, navigated family estrangement and along the way I discovered that heartbreak can gift you some super-spidey senses. Let’s call it intuition because you have it too, and I want to help you tap into it. That is what makes life EASIER

When you want to make change or start over, the biggest thing that keeps you stuck is doubting yourself. Worrying about getting it wrong or what other people think. You think you need to nail it perfectly. There’s no such thing. Phew! Instead you have to be on your team, and take baby steps in the right direction. And then you pay close attention, because the answers, I’ve discovered, live inside of YOU. You just have to know which questions to ask to unlock YOUR MAGIC!

 My wish for you

at the end of your day!

YOU notice a shift in your energy – you’ll love yourself and your life a little bit, or a lot MORE, than when we began!

YOU feel chuffed to bits with what can be accomplished in one day when you’re FOCUSSED and SUPPORTED.

YOU have more CLARITY about where you’re heading & CONFIDENT you can get there. 

YOU feel PROUD of yourself for carving out some ‘me time’ (for once!) & prioritising your needs.

YOU feel MOTIVATED to stay in the zone & take action.

Here are what clients have to say about Discovery Days:

a client recommendation about Smiley Coach Lisa Parkes

“As I was messaging with Lisa, I had a million thoughts going through my head. The conversation flowed effortlessly – she let me ramble and sieved through it all to help me find the gold! It was much more fun than I had anticipated. None of the dread of staring at my to do list and not getting stuff done. Lisa lasered in on where I needed to go – that really took away the overwhelm. Then I could work out what was best for me. Having the day to think about what I want for the first time in ages was so worthwhile. It was a bit of an eye opener actually – I’m usually too busy running around after everybody else. At the end of my day with Lisa I felt calm and back in the driver seat. Thank you Lisa!”

“It was a fascinating process and time well spent asking Lisa about her work with children. She’s been on a real journey to set up her coaching business and has so much experience. She’s so committed and has a real passion for helping people. Together, we brainstormed ideas of what was possible and she had some brilliant ideas and resources for me to investigate. I love having the messages to play back. Hearing yourself say what you’re thinking out loud is powerful. It’s time and I feel ready to get started with my discoveries and carve my own path working with children.”

“I loved my Discovery Day! I felt surprisingly relaxed. I was worried the connection wouldn’t be there, but there was so much creative, inspiring energy, and lots of laughter! I really felt like Lisa was on my team. She emanates a loveliness and warmth that not many people have. I walked the dog, pottered around at home getting chores done whilst pinging messages. I stopped for tea and a spot of journaling. I discovered that I know much more than I thought I did. Lisa taught me how to trust myself and listen to my intuition. I wish I had done this sooner. I didn’t realise how stuck I was, but with Lisa’s patience and support, we cleared all that away. I feel much lighter and brighter. Thank you!

“Lisa, WOW – amazing! This is such a powerful way to make change and progress. Our day together has been invaluable. I just needed this time to get myself back on track. It was so productive. You’ve opened my eyes, and I see things so differently. I’ve got this new found courage to begin again. I can see the path ahead to leaving my teaching job and following my heart into a more creative career. You shared so much wisdom, and asked the difficult questions that were long overdue. It truly was a magical day – thank you for giving me my sparkle back!”

Got questions? 

I’ve got answers! 

Who is a Discovery Day for?

This is for you if:

  • You devour personal development books and podcasts but don’t implement anything.
  • You want to put a stop to the overwhelm, and feel empowered, but don’t know where to start.
  • You need to make a big life decision and want to work out what is the right thing for you.
  • You feel stuck and need a sounding board, someone to help you work through ideas for the next phase of your life or business.
  • You’re thinking about becoming a Coach (or you’re a new Coach) and you have questions about how to set up and find work.
  • You’re an introvert — introverts often need more time to process questions and come back with an answer which makes working together over a messaging app a great fit. It’s also introvert heaven to have a duvet day and not have to show up on Zoom. If I could get away without a full face of make up, a top knot held together with dry shampoo and my PJs to pop to the shops, I would!

This is NOT for you if:

  • You hate messaging and want face to face connection.

  • You want an 8-hour chat-athon. I LOVE to talk about life and the Universe, but this just isn’t the time for that! You’ll get the most out of these calls if we can focus on just one juicy problem.

What is Voxer?

Voxer is like WhatsApp, but Voxer puts healthy boundaries between our “work” and “life” chats. It’s really easy to use, and is available for both mobile and desktop. Just download the app and we’ll add each other on Voxer (you’ll get my username when you book your day), then we’re all set. If you don’t have a Voxer account, you’ll create one – it’s free!

What's so great about Voxer?

Voxer is designed to be mobile, it fits in with real life. It’s a perfect hybrid – expert coaching but without the intensity of a face to face package and with enough time to get answers and create the changes in your life you need to make.

  • it’s super easy to do – feels like a casual chat.
  • it gives us both freedom – you do not have to stay at home to take this way of coaching. You can go for a walk, do your grocery shopping, and take care of your children while getting coached by me. The same goes for me, by the way – so freedom all the way!
  • You’ve got plenty of time to slow down, reflect, and ask questions without pressure.
How long is our Discovery Day?

We’ll start at 9am and finish at 5pm. This day was designed to fit in around life. So don’t worry. This doesn’t mean we’ll be communicating nonstop for 8 hours – that’s just the window during which we’ll be exchanging messages. It enables us both to freely go about the day (without being chained to a desk or phone) whilst focussing your attention on exactly where it needs to be. We’ll go at a relaxed pace throughout the day with natural breaks. So if you have to do something or go somewhere there is still lots of time to work through things.

Can I have more than one Discovery Day?

Yes! When people are going through change, feel uncertain or disheartened they find it so helpful to have a coach on call. Book as many days as you like!

How available do I need to be?

I won’t be glued to my phone and you don’t need to be either. You just need to make sure you have enough time between your day activities to listen and reply to messages – as well as the mental space to think, process, take notes and reflect.

What if I don't know where to start?

It’s also okay if you’re not sure what you want to talk about. Sometimes we just know that things are off somehow, but can’t really tell why. I can help you work it out. It can be about work or personal (there is usually some overlap) because it’s all about YOU!

How many questions can I ask you?

I know that I attract thoughtful clients who often worry about ‘bothering’ me. So I want to let you know that I will take care of my own boundaries.

I respond as soon as possible (max. 2 hrs but often much faster). Even if I don’t reply instantly, writing things out, or sending me a voice note is massively useful and will help you while you’re waiting for a reply. No question is a stupid question and remember that going off on tangents is often where the magic happens! This day is for YOU and I want you to get as much value out of it as possible.

What if none of the dates work for me?

I have a limited number of Discovery Days each month. If you don’t see an available day, check back later in case someone reschedules. If you really want to book but no available dates work for you, get in touch.

What if I need to reschedule?

Life happens! I totally get it, which is why you can reschedule up to 24 hours before we are due to start. BUT… you can only reschedule once. You can use my calendar to find a new slot that works for you.

I have one more question before I book

No worries. Just send me an email or go to the contact page and I’ll get back to you within the next 24 hours.
