Liezl Thom Interview


Liezl Thom


Liezl Thom has been a broadcasting journalist for more than two decades. She started her career as a finance journalist for Business Day Radio before moving over to the news desk. From there, she joined Kosmos Digital as senior producer before being appointed as senior reporter and Pretoria Correspondent for Eyewitness News. She currently holds a retainer from ABC News (America) and has reported on a range of high-profile stories – including the Oscar Pistorius murder trial and the death of Former President Nelson Mandela – for the network.

She’s appeared on Good Morning America (the biggest morning show in the USA), World News, Nightline and the magazine show 20/20.

Liezl has also appeared on BBC Radio, Channel 7 in Australia, several Australian talk radio stations as well as a number of other radio stations across the globe, as part of her coverage of the Pistorius Trial. 

Currently, Liezl is putting her experience as a media practitioner to use as a Media Training Consultant, which includes training in the art of podcasting.

Liezl’s greatest joy is finding and telling stories that challenge the status quo or inspire change. She firmly believes that every person has a story to tell and that it’s her honour and privilege to help them share it with the world.

As a Master Transformation Coach, Liezl takes it one step further by helping and guiding her clients to reframe their narrative and to choose the stories they tell themselves about themselves.


Liezl Thom is a qualified Master Transformation Coach, Life Coach, Neurolinguistics Practitioner and Inner Conflict Therapy Practitioner. Over the past decade, she has been guiding her clients on their journeys to self-discovery and awakening. Liezl helps people re-evaluate and change the stories they tell themselves about themselves, which liberates them from their fears and limiting beliefs and helps them harness the power of change.

Liezl was trained as a Life Coach by internationally acclaimed coach and author Martha Beck. She also trained as a Master Transformation Coach at The Transformation Coaching Academy.

In 2018, CV Magazine voted her as one of their top 50 Life Coaches. She also starred as one of two life coaches on the Afrikaans hit series “Vet Kans”, which was aired on Kyknet towards the end of 2018.

As a child, Liezl drove her parents insane with her constant questioning. To this day, she continues to examine every belief and thought and encourages her clients to question their own beliefs and thoughts. Her burning desire to know why the world works the way it does, lead her to a thriving career in broadcasting journalism, which also paved the way for a best-selling book and her great passion – talk shows.

Her experience as coach and broadcaster 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 continued a passion ignited in the six years she guest-presented the popular show “Believe it or not” on Talk 702 and 567 Cape Talk.
