Meet Lisa Phillips, Coach and Speaker for Personal Development and Positive Change
Hi, My name is Lisa Phillips and I am an internationally renowned expert in Confidence, Self Esteem and Resilience. Formally based in Sydney Australia for over 17 years, I appeared regularly on TV, Radio and Media sharing my expertise on self development topics. Having now returned to live in Northamptonshire, UK, ( 2017) I am delighted to share my expertise in my home country and also continue to work on Skype with my clients around the world.
A passion for personal development
My true passion in life is assisting people to tune into their authentic self, increase confidence and help others learn to love, accept and believe in themselves – while feeling good at the same time! I LOVE to see people grow during the coaching process and reach out, tap into who they really are and feel good about themselves! 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 unworthy, not good enough or undeserving of the life they would really like to lead.

Expert confidence coach
Prior to becoming a full time Life and Confidence Coach my background was in Finance where I worked in Senior Management Positions around the world, including 12 months in Singapore. However, I always felt that this was not my real passion in life but I lacked the confidence and know how to create my own chosen career path. It often felt that the bus of life was driving me round and round wherever it wanted, whether I liked it or not with me just sitting in the back seat!
What I didn’t understand at the time, was that I am more than capable of empowering myself to drive my own bus in exactly the direction I wanted my life to go! In particular, in the direction that felt good to me and tuned into my own personal preferences.
Early on in my career as a Life Coach, I decided to get into Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and 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 to Australia. This decision totally transformed my life and I have never looked back. I did not realise at the time what a positive impact Life 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 founded Amazing Coaching in 2000.
