Nothing is more important
    than your state of mind.  

When you are in a clear, calm, and centered state of mind, you have the awareness and ability to navigate every situation, conversation, or problem in your life with ease. 

It's you, at your mental, emotional & spiritual best.

Imagine having the confidence, tools, and know-how to kindly manage emotions, inspire action in yourself or others, and communicate effectively (regardless of circumstance), or effectively improve your health. This is what we call

inner evolution.

At The Grey Monkey Gym, we teach and coach on exactly this type of inner health and whole-person wellbeing, emphasizing the psycho-spiritual elements of evolved thinking, inspired action, and kick-ass communication.

But why "Grey Monkey"?

Buddhists call it the monkey mind. It is a state of mind typified by feeling unhappy, overwhelmed, anxious, and unclear and drenched in attachment to the superficial. Like a monkey, this type of thinking runs around your psychological house destroying your peace, clarity, inner calm, and essentially, throwing poo at your goals, good habits, and relationships.

We help you evolve into a way of living that feeds your soul.

   Areas of Expertise:
  • Health, Wellbeing & Self-Care
  • Emotional Intelligence & Empathetic       Communication
  • Psychosomatics & Chronic Illness

Hi, I'm Lisa


I founded The Grey Monkey Gym after more than 20 years in the health & fitness industry. as I witnessed time and again people struggling for years to master a habit, unaware or unwilling to look for solutions within themselves.

"A problem cannot be solved by the same level of consciousness that created it" - Albert Einstein


Whether you want to create vibrant wellbeing, establish a fresh career focus, develop a practice of spiritual self-care, or implement peaceful parenting, I help my clients develop whole-person wellbeing: a mindset for mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual life balance -- and a lifestyle in alignment with what matters most to them.

Through The Grey Monkey Gym, I offer products and services to help you with this inner evolution. Together, we tame your inner ape and free your mind.

You can find out more about my approach and credentials here.

"Lisa has a gift: helping people achieve their personal goals while gradually shifting their mindset. It's a brilliant combination."
