Start where you are. Learn at the pace you want. Fit it in around your busy life. Bite sized lessons which you can repeat over and over until you internalise and make them part of your family. You will also be supported by all the other families taking their courses which will motivate and uplift you when you are having a bad day (it's OK we all have them!)
Smiley's Online Learning Den is easy to use and is optimised to play back on any device so you can access your content on the go.

"I absolutely love Lisa's work. My son has worked with her twice and she has an incredible way of connecting with children and getting them comfortable to open up and explore whatever is going on for them. I love her Smiley Thought Cards, her blogs and her newsletters are full of useful content too. I can't recommend this lady highly enough."

"Lisa has been a lifeline to me and my son over the last 8 months. We're going through a really tough time and it has been exhausting and upsetting for the whole family. My son has attended coaching and workshops with Lisa, with many practical outcomes and tools to use. Lisa is practical, caring, flexible and genuine. Her passion for helping little people and guiding us big people to connect better shines through everything she does."

“She certainly 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 and really resists at times but the more relaxed and at ease I am, the more freedom I give her, the more confident and happy she is! It was so lovely to see her having fun and most of all seeing how brave she was facing her fear. She performed her drama show in front of a group of parents last night and did it with such passion and confidence. She actually looked like she was having fun with it. It is wonderful to see her confidence growing and her coming into her own. Thank you so much for helping us on our journey together.”
