Trisha Lewis

I have a background that sets me up to help you communicate with the impact you need and the enjoyment that motivates. I have had jobs in schools, corporates, retail and I have been self-employed as an actor, speaker and reminiscence facilitator - all leading to setting up as a communication and confidence coach in 2016. I have done a lot of work personally and with others on all things impostor syndrome - but I call this self-squashing. Proud to have published my first book in 2021 - 'The Mystery of the Squashed Self' - helping small business owners sort self-sabotage and thrive. I am the host of the 'Make it Real' podcast - for small business owers who want to grow their business without squashing their soul. You get the gist.
