Hi! I'm Lisa and often called The Smiley Coach. I teach children life skills and practical coping strategies to make growing up easier. I've helped hundreds of children become self aware and develop a positive outlook on life; beating their fears, worries and stresses about homework, exams, friendship struggles, bullying, nerves and anxiety to name but a few. Through my work, children develop self belief, emotional resilience and positive thinking.
I want learning to be fun and engaging for children. I believe that our capacity to learn and reach our full potential lies in the way we feel and think. These are the building blocks of enthusiastic learners.

I have a certified Life Coaching and Child Coaching Diploma from the Oxford School of Learning. I'm educated in the school of life and have been working through my own childhood trauma for over 15 years. This has been the best training ground. Having been a child who didn't get what they needed growing up, I have so much empathy for these kids and understand what they need.
I'm also the creator of Smiley Thought Cards; positive affirmations which foster emotional intelligence and a growth mindset. You can find me on my kids' podcast 'Truly Madly Smiley' which is available on itunes or here on my website www.smileyforlife.com I love cheese, Murder Mysteries and am forever championing the underdog,
