She has also been a guest on the Oscar Pistorius Trial Pop-up channel and was a regular face on the Afrikaans channel Kyknet’s morning show, “Dagbreek”.
Her experience as coach and radio personality gave her the opportunity to co-host “Beyond Ears and Eyes” on Cliff Central, a talk show covering a wide range of topics that explore alternative lifestyles, beliefs and healing modalities. This continues a passion ignited in the six years Liezl guest presented the popular show “Believe it or not” on Talk 702 and 567 Cape Talk.

Liezl was trained as a Life Coach by internationally acclaimed coach and author Martha Beck.
“Liezl Thom has huge compassion and understanding for the challenges faced by young people. Her blend of youthful perspective and time-tested knowledge makes her a truly wonderful coach for people struggling to cope with change. I wish I’d had an advisor like Liezl when I was a teenager, and I’d send my own children to her in a heartbeat. Liezl helps the youth make sense of their lives, find their own truth, and thrive.” – Martha Beck
“I’m so glad I found Liezl. With her knowing smile and gentle prodding, she guided me to find my own wisdom and answers. I stand by her methods because without them, I would not have been able to turn around my business and steer it into a new direction.” – Werner Troskie (2018 Vetkans contestant)
“I wasn’t sure if coaching would work for me and I was very scared of opening myself up. Liezl immediately set my mind at ease and showed me that change can be exciting if I take responsibility for it. I cannot thank her enough for the changes she helped me to make!” – Judy Cameron
“We all know that the only constant thing in life is change, but we always kick against it when it comes. Liezl helped me to not just stop resisting change, but to harness it to take me where I want to be.” – Caroline Baloyi
“Liezl Thom has changed my life in ways I still cannot fathom. As a life coach myself, I never thought that I would need coaching, but Liezl proved this wrong! Her ability to read her clients is a talent that very few have. 3 years on and we still have our weekly sessions, which I simply cannot live without!” – Emanuel Pietersen
