About me

Our minds have untapped potential, when unleashed through understanding the fundamental principles and logic behind human experience, results in an exponential increased capacity for productivity, efficiency, decision making, problem-solving, creativity, innovation and resilience.

I work with individual clients, groups and teams to tune up minds to achieve the desired results and those you didn't think possible.


?How we perceive, cope and try to fix our state of mind, is the single biggest factor that drives unwanted, self-limiting reactions and behaviours. This interference to our natural mental well-being, affects how we show up in the world and move forward with our lives.

?To understand the mechanics of the mind, to realise the truth behind how we experience life, brings a clarity of mind and insightful understanding that allow us to see fresh perspectives, drop resistance and limitations; profoundly impact how we engage life on both a personal and professional level.

?This fundamental shift in understanding and perspective is simple and psychologically subtractive in its nature, meaning it takes unnecessary stuff off peoples’ minds, rather than adding to it with tools and techniques, allowing us to be at our best more effortlessly.

??I work with individuals over a period of 3 or more months, often with an intensive day or two at the start. The sessions will likely have impact from the very beginning, but the longer period allows us to explore deeper and so experience more sustainable change than you ever thought possible. This also gives you the support you need as mindset shifts start 're-coding', as I will be on call when you aren't seeing something clearly: to hold that space with you; guide you when you are struggling; and to be in awe with you as the insights start positively impacting your experience of life.

Depending on your needs, there are private or group programmes available. We can work together over Zoom video call, face-to-face and via telephone. Location is no barrier to a great coaching relationship.


I run fun and impactful group programmes that include mind experiments that help tune up your mind to live a more joyful, fulfilled, productive and creative life.

These can be one-off events or regular sessions.


The effective working capacity of your employees is dependant on their mental well-being. Time and money is lost retraining, rehiring and providing help to stressed employees.  Through coaching and mind experiments, I help build resilience and well-being to allow individuals and teams perform at their peak, independent of workload or how stressful or intense circumstances appear.

A taster session can be run over 3-4 hours, and this will open the participants eyes to their potential.

A 2 day programme will allow a deeper exploration, transform how your people think and work. Typical results are significantly increased productivity and mental resilience, benefiting both work and home life.

A 4 day programme; 2 day coaching and 2 day business problem facilitation, allows for experiential team learning, unlocking their infinite potential and facilitating them to produce effective solutions and deliver extraordinary business benefits. Other outcomes include significant improvements to team-working, collaborating and managing people.

Working with teams I typically partner with a colleague, so that in that short period of 4 days, we can tune up minds, to facilitate the team to produce breakthrough results, resolving tough problems or exceeding desired goals and timelines. Ultimately facilitating you and your teams to perform at your best.

Training, qualifications & experience

In 2015 I founded Insight Coach Consultancy with a vision to help people and businesses be at their best.

?I have 30 years of experience within global investment banks and other large Corporates, ranging from Accountancy to Change Management to leading the Graduate development programme. Alongside my career in business, my interest in the workings of the human mind led me to train, work and develop my skills in a number of disciplines around the human dimension. Business is, of course, nothing without it's people, so I now successfully combine both in my coaching and consulting business.

“My time with Lisa was excellent and truly life-changing. We quickly stopped the worry, self-doubt, procrastination, unnecessary goal-setting and planning that were all filling my head with destructive thoughts but also preventing me having the time to think about what was important. Lisa was key to settling me down and stopping me going after just any role in order to have a job, I've ended up with the right, amazing job. My son is also now doing much better at school as I put less pressure on him, and I'm enjoying all the things I do in my life. It could easily be related to the work Lisa and I did, and I have to thank her from the bottom of my heart for the impact she has had on me and indirect impact on my family.”  AB, Client

“Lisa came into my life when my partner was looking for help as I was suffering with panic/anxiety and feeling depressed and thank God he did! From the first minutes of talking i felt at ease it was like someone was uncovering the sun from a really dark cloud I still remember when Lisa said to me "your mental health is all there" those words gave me hope and I needed hope, she kindly worked on me and brought the joy of living I had lost. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Lisa for the professionalism, for the many hours of kindness and humanism I can say thanks to this amazing person I look at life through a child's eyes. I am happy, and I am not scared anymore. Thank you so much.”  LA, Client
