Meet our Confidence and Life Coach
Hi, My name is Lisa and I am a Confidence, Life and Success coach based in Sydney, Australia. My passion in life is helping people really love, accept and believe in themselves. I am also the author of The Confidence Coach Book and in 2015, was a finalist in the International Coaching Federation Coach of the Year’ award. In addition, I was also awarded two 2015 Bronze Awards in the International Women in Business Awards in the categories of ‘ Coach or Mentor’ of the Year and also ‘ Women helping Women’ specifically for my work assisting people with confidence.
Sydney Life and Confidence Coach
I love to see people grow during the coaching process and reach out and fulfill their wildest dreams. In particular, I gain great satisfaction watching everyone I work with transform into feeling more empowered, self-responsible, confident and happy. This often includes removing old negative patterns such as feeling un- worthy, un- deserving or not good enough.
Prior to becoming a Life and Confidence Coach, my background was in Finance, Training and Change Management, where I worked in Senior Management Positions around the world. However, I always felt that this was not my real passion in life but I lacked the confidence and know how to take action and do anything about it. I just felt that the bus of life was driving me round and round wherever it wanted, whether I liked it or not! What I didn't realize at the time, was that I am more than capable of driving my own bus in exactly the direction I wanted my life to go!
I decided to get into Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Success coaching at a time when it seemed that my life was falling apart around me. I had recently lost my job, got divorced and moved far away from my family and friends. This decision totally transformed my life and I have never looked back. I did not realise at the time what a positive impact coaching would make to all areas of my life. In particular, it allowed me to increase my self-esteem and confidence, and really believe that I was good enough to have the life I wanted to lead! As a result, I stepped out of the Corporate world and into Amazing Coaching!
My life is a continuous journey, and I have experienced endless positive changes. I am now totally committed to helping individuals and organisations feel empowered and confident. My formal training in Confidence and Life Coaching, Counselling and Neuro Linguistic Programming have enabled me to develop a holistic approach that is tailored to assist others make effortless transformation in their lives.

Our Organisation had the wonderful privilege of meeting Lisa and having her facilitate a strategic planning day for future growth. Our day was filled with encouragement, great humour, understanding and drive to push the whole group forward into creating a better team work ethic. I would recommend Lisa to any organisation who are looking for creative, professional and effective methods for their team building and organisational strategic plans.
Lisa recently delivered a workshop and networking lunch to a group of our small business clients. Our organisation runs over 100 events per year and the feedback we received from Lisa's event rated as one of the highest we have had for 2014.

"Lisa is a brilliant speaker, lots of fun and talks a great deal of sense".

Lisa is dynamic, and her knowledge is current and relevant. The feedback from my students was consistently high - they loved her and her teaching methods. I have no hesitation at all of recommending Lisa for coaching, training or presenting across any business field for any audience. I will definitely work with her again when the opportunity arises.

I had the pleasure of meeting Lisa, at a CPA Public Practice Forum in September 2016. Lisa great presentation about ‘Building Resilience’ was very well received by all attendees. I was lucky to get Lisa's book 'The Confidence Coach' which was an inspiring and empowering guide towards self-confidence and taking control of my life and wellbeing.
Lisa is an absolute dynamo who quickly feels like a long time close friend that always leaves me smiling after speaking. She emits positive energy off the charts and keenly knows the ups the downs of life and how to position yourself to best ride them. She has amazing presence in front of a camera or microphone and is absolutely 'on the pulse' in delivering the topic message with passion that wholeheartedly engages her audience bringing with it nods of agreeance. She is hands-down someone you just NEED to speak with!
I attended one of Lisa's workshops, and found the session extremely valuable. Lisa demonstrated a high degree of expertise and her presentation was clear and often times very funny! Her style was open, engaging, and inviting to questions from the group. Lisa is extremely passionate about what she does, and I would definitely recommend her.
Lisa has been writing a coaching column for our UK newspapers for over 12 months. She is a fabulous writer and her column is very popular with our audience. Her talents as a journalist are evident in the articles she submits, she is also very proactive and has never missed a deadline yet, a real pleasure to work with.
Lisa is an inspiration to all. She is so understanding and caring towards whatever problems you are going through and arms you with the skills to handling things on your own. Thanks to Lisa's motivation, dedication and belief in both herself and in you, I have come to realise many things that others don't find until they are much much older. You have made me feel extremely proud of the journey of life I am undertaking and I hope to make you proud.
"Since meeting you, I've ramped up my confidence which means I had a spurt of empowerment: I revamped my website, got some headshot, and met my angels. Yesterday, I challenged the angels. I said, "you guys have been awesome, I challenge you to top yourselves... let's make today awesome!" and I got an email from a great company in Melbourne, who are one of the top agents in the country. I'm going to meet them next week to talk about representation. BOOM! Not to mention, my levels of happiness are about 100 per cent higher, as I told you, my boyfriend even thinks I'm drunk half the time cause I'm so happy. And it's because of your support in opening up the inner happiness and confidence that was hiding, and shutting the door on doubt and negativity!"
"When I came to Lisa I was unclear of my next steps, scared to make another bad choice I was treading water. Lisa helped me to understand why I was feeling this way and gave me the tools to realise what was important in my life. Since working with Lisa I have made considerable changes and I am now living life with purpose and direction!"
If you are looking for a coach that takes a personal interest in you, is reliable, knowledgeable and has exceptional experience as a Life Coach then you need look no further than Lisa Phillips. She is an inspiration to not only myself but many others. Thanks Lisa.
Having studied coaching psychology at the post graduate level, I have met and worked with many coaches and I have to say that Lisa Phillips is up there with the best. Lisa combines technical knoweldge with incredible intuition and a passionate energy to bring instant results. After just two coaching sessions with Lisa, I made some incredible gains and clarity regarding my own career objectives, plus some great simple daily tools to use to keep me on track with achieving my goals. Lisa is warm, empathetic and very responsive and I would highly recoemmend her.
Lisa has incredible interviewing skills. She is an amazing and generous soul, with superb articulation and wit. A consummate coaching professional, I love working with her on every and any level, and hope to have a long and endearing lifelong relationship..
When I first came to coaching with Lisa I was a mess with little clear direction. With Lisa's help and guidance I transformed my life and cleared out the stuff that no longer serves me and was holding me back. I am finally getting a grasp on who I really am and what I want from life and building my confidence all the time. Thanks Lisa..
I have had business coaching previously, but I found that, if anything, it put more pressure on me. Life Coaching with Lisa is completely different! It is opening up a whole new world to me and I can see that everything is falling into place easily and a lot of 'shoulds' are falling away.. and Im getting in touch with what I REALLY want.
"I thought life coaching would be a slightly scary experience that would really push me out of my comfort zone.. Life Coaching with Lisa is so much fun and I'm finding I'm the one pushing forward saying more! more!"
You know what though Lisa? I finally get it!!! Omg it's like the "ah haa" moment I have been waiting for.. It's not so much what's happened to me, it's more what's happening IN me..
I have blamed circumstances outside of my control for why I'm different, men leave,just not the right guy bla bla and while some of that is partly true it's me that will change it. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making that clear I am so excited to know I will fix it and I am not broken or unlucky bla bla what rubbish!.
I first met Lisa about 10 years ago when a dear mutual friend of both of ours convinced me to attend one of Lisa’s workshops. Since this time, not only did this make such a difference to my life in terms of how to truly believe in myself and become a more confident person, but I have had the pleasure of watching Lisa herself grow and mould and mature into one of the most talented Life Coaches, Mentor’s and fabulous human beings that I have had the pleasure to meet. Lisa truly operates from the heart and this is evident in any of the materials she has written and interactions I have ever had with her. She believes in me and now so do I!.
"....I think the most important thing I have learnt from my coaching with Lisa, is that I'm an 'all right' person,... no actually I'm a fantastic person and I now believe in myself and my ability to do anything and everything I ever dreamed of."
Lisa draws on her own experiences to connect with me on levels not easily reached, teaching me how to live life with verve, passion and direction. I look forward to our sessions which are always injected with laughter, wisdom and love.
Having suffered with depression for the past 40 years and having seen countless doctors, counsellors, psychologist s, mental health centres and self-help readings, I decided I needed to engage a Life Coach. Lisa Phillips came to me (through Internet searching) and I engaged her services that had an immediate effect on me and my teenage son as we undertook confidence practice together. Twelve 12 months on my guiding path is the skills I learnt with Lisa.
Lisa helped me to find `me’ and in turn, helped those who I love.
"Lisa presented at the CPA ' Associate Networking Group' discussion group. Lisa presented with such enthusiasm, humour and zest, there was a fantastic atmosphere in the room. I had a number of members come up to me after her presentation to let me know how much they enjoyed it. We were all able to relate to her talk on confidence and gain some great insights. I would highly recommend using Lisa as a speaker and hope to work with her again in the future."
"I was enlightened by the sensational presentation on Confidence by Lisa Phillips at a CPA Networking event. Lisa was able to awaken our inner awareness in a easy going atmosphere where we were able to comprehend. She has made real, positive impact. Thank you so much Lisa!"

She has an infectious smile, and is very creative in her presentation style."
In just one hour, you have changed the way I look at my role. I am now rather excited about empowering myself to take responsibility rather than just waiting for things to happen for me.
Lisa recently presented at the CPA Australia 'Public Practice Annual Forum luncheon' on resilience and was absolutely fantastic.

Lisa, is by far the most amazing person I have been in contact with for coaching. She tapped into my thought processes and really assisted me with directing me in a clear and constant way that I needed to know.

Lisa has experience and know how and I'm forever grateful for her information and value her high integrity towards my goals and business. I totally over recommend her, but I want her all to myself!!

I had the pleasure of getting Lisa Phillips involved in “Dani’s self-esteem team” for 101.3 SEA FM. Her natural talent for public speaking was apparent from the get go but even more so her passion for the message she is trying to spread. She had myself and the rest of the women involved inspired and feeling like it was Ok to love ourselves and put ourselves first. She is enigmatic and I cannot wait for our future projects together. Lisa, I wish you all the best in improving the self-esteems of every woman around the world, I truly believe you have what it takes to do so!”

Lisa was a both enthusiastic and totally engaging in her presentation to a group of ICF Coaches in June! It was refreshing to hear how one can reframe something that we are fearful of and totally flip it on its head! The analogies given were simple and direct and as a Coach myself it was great to be supported throughout out the session and it reaffirmed I am on the right path and doing well.
Lisa presented to the ICF NSW membership base, a group both new and experienced coaches. Her analogy of going both up and down stream was presented with passion, wisdom and care. We were not only able to experience this belief shift for ourselves and evaluate the focus towards our own businesses, but also added a useful tool in our warehouse when working with Clients. Lisa was energetic and full of great examples on how flowing with our downstream will enables us to thrive.
Attended a conference where Lisa was an amazing coach. Her message was powerful, the examples used were consistent with the message and her presentation was flawless. Highly recommended as a conference speaker and coach.

I attended the Self Esteem Workshop which was organised by 101.3 Sea FM and Lisa Phillips was one of the guest speakers. Normally when someone talks for an hour the speech can be quite drawn out and boring, but Lisa's combination of humour, honesty and crowd interaction made it so interesting and enjoyable. At the end of the speech I felt uplifted, enlightened with a range of new tools to assist me in leading a happy positive life.
