Hello! I’m so glad you’re here.

I’m Lisa – – you might know me as The Smiley Coach. I don’t like the word Coach because people think I’m a therapist or Counsellor. I’m not. I see myself as more of a Fraunt (friendly Aunt), guide and mentor whose job is to show children their greatness and help make growing up easier >>get to know more about me.  

I often work with Wildhearts (strong-willed sensitive children) because I’m one too. I grew up feeling like I didn’t quite fit in.  >>read more about Wildhearts and what they need.  



Truth teller. KINDNESS Spreader. Creative Doodlebug. Ninja Detective. Recovering Perfectionist. Curious Life Explorer. Empathy Educator. 

My wish is to ensure there are LESS misunderstood, sad, lonely hurting children and MORE happy, confident and emotionally resilient ones who feel comfortable in their own skin.  >>listen in to the podcast to hear how I connect with children. 

I can’t make life more certain, or the world safer, but ….

I can help your child feel better by uncovering the innate wisdom they already have inside of them. Now if that sounds a little too ‘woo woo’ for you, I will also ensure your child learns whatever practical skills and tools they need to navigate life independently – without you and without me!  

Served up with huge dollops of fun, kindness, and creativity, your child will be able to learn from adversity. Instead of letting it negatively define them.



PS My Kids Podcast + Grown Up Blog is made with LOVE …and totally FREE!  If you enjoy my work, you can treat me to a cuppa. Thank you!

She came out of her session full of giggles and very chatty. We’ve really seen a massive shift in her over the last few months. She still struggles with talking about her feelings at times but the more relaxed and at ease I am, the more confident and happy she is.

My eldest has made great progress at The Energy Pod. The daily meltdowns are now very rare, and he even referred to his bedroom as his ’Happiness Room’ at the weekend which left me speechless. This was always where he would retreat when feeling angry.
