Performance Confidence & Self Care


What is Confidence?

Why Confidence Matters

Confidence is a state of certainty becoming visible with:


•  detailed preparation

•  belief in one’s ability

•  strong conviction about one’s work

•  desire to demonstrate one’s ability to others

•  self confidence.

Confidence allows you to ‘let go’ and exhibit your true ability in front of others. Confidence is something that can come and go, depending on your circumstances and experiences. So you need to know how to gain it, but also how to quickly regain it.

Reach your goals and dreams with Carmel Liertz’s Confidence Program


As national and international Performance Coach, I’m passionate about helping people to be the best they can be –to assist them to overcome obstacles and create their goals and dreams.


My personal style is individualised. I believe in the one-to-one relationship for client-centred focus and results. Aspirational people wanting to enhance their performance benefit from my unique strategies package for performance and presentation confidence – giving them treasured knowledge not otherwise readily available.

From the age of eleven, following my first television performance, I began watching elite performers –athletes, ice-skaters, gymnasts, theatre or music performers. I observed intently how they created masterful performances. I felt I could ‘see’ inside elite athletes’ minds – how they primed themselves to get that necessary focus, psyche themselves up.


I wanted this, to enhance my practice and performance.
So I practised my psyching regime for ‘performance practice’ and prior to performance.
