Unleash your Superself with the power of personal change

How To unleash your Super-Self!

The Power of Personal Change

Super Heart

6-day NLP Training Intensive

Spring 2024: Monday 16  – Saturday 21 September 2024
Raglan, Waikato

Please Note: This is a stand-alone course. It’s also the first of three, 6-day modules leading to NLP Practitioner Certification (total 18 days). If you decide to continue towards this international qualification, you won’t need to start again from scratch, provided you complete within 3 years.


Where did the Super-Self idea come from?

I was chatting with a newly minted NLP Practitioner about how NLP training unlocks deeper intelligence and smarter thinking. She interrupted me, wide-eyed:

“Oh, it’s so much more than that! It’s as if we access our… umm… Super-Self! Like our superhero selves that are sooo much more of everything; smarter, more confident, more authentic, more connected, more courageous … well just more — of everything! And everyone on the course achieved those massive changes!”

OK then.

So while I tend to be more humble and modest about my training, this woman wasn’t going to let me play small!

Who Or What Is Your Super-Self?

Your super-self

Your Super-Self is the learner and the knower. It’s that part of you that has deep intuitive wisdom, that knows your infinite potential and that makes great decisions. Sometimes you might access it fleetingly when you’re ‘in the flow’—only for it to vanish when you need it most!

What if you could access your Super-Self more often?

How different would life be if you had the skills to easily figure out what was driving someone’s behaviour and to respond with objectivity and compassion instead of frustration and teeth-gnashing? What if you had practical skills to help you really figure out how people ‘tick’—and why everyone seems to ‘tick’ differently?

Life changing. Everything you get out of the course is positive both for work and personal life. Stephanie is an excellent trainer with a great sense of humour. She makes everyone feel welcome.

A Six-Day Intensive Training in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)

In this training, you’ll gain practical tools and skills to become more of who you are and to access your Super-Self more often. You’ll improve your Emotional Intelligence (EQ) by gaining more self-awareness and awareness of others. You’ll develop the Soft Skills which are vital to your effectiveness in the 21st Century — both in your personal and professional relationships. In fact you’ll take your People Skills to a whole new level.

This training is for you if you value your own development or facilitate the growth and development of others. You likely want better, faster, and longer-lasting results in your life and with clients, team members, family, or customers. You want to know how to achieve behavioural change — in yourself, with others — or both!

Beyond behavioural change

If you’ve ever tried to change a behaviour by constantly focusing on it, you know how hard that can be—and how easy it is to slip back into the old ways. My unique approach works on both deeper and higher levels of mental, emotional and physical functioning. Instead of just learning a few new processes or techniques, this will reshape the very foundation of your thinking; you’ll almost feel the new dendrites growing and reaching out to hold hands! 

Change happens easily and effortlessly and at the deepest level.

I’m able to view the world from different points of view and can see, hear and feel how other people think and act. I am conscious of the environment and the messages that are out there.

If anyone was considering doing this course I would say that it’s the most powerful way to learn how to truly communicate with other people. I learnt that the power of communication isn’t simply based on talking or sending email reminders; but on listening to the words spoken by people and paying attention to and responding to their body language. By using these cues to base one’s communication on, one can effectively establish open communication.

I love using the sensory based language and body language every day and it works really well when talking to parents – both happy and upset parents. In terms of working with staff the model is really effective as it’s personal and I’m told that, ‘You listen to us, you may not do what we want, but at least you listen to us’.

A great way to learn. Many thanks. Stephanie was personal, friendly, supportive, empowering, challenging and inspirational.

Why ‘The Power of Personal Change’?

I daresay, that at some point in your life, you’ve engaged in behaviours designed to mould or change the behaviour of someone else? With children it often works. With adults, more often than not, it doesn’t. And if it doesn’t work, you’re stuck.

When you change your own behaviour, those around you respond differently. You don’t have to ‘try’ to ensure the changes stay ‘changed.’ Your new ways of thinking and being will have a natural, positive flow-on effect to those around you, providing you with a feedback mechanism of how you’re developing. You’ll make the changes you want for yourself and you’ll also learn ways to help others make the changes they want—with care and integrity.

That’s why it’s called, ‘The Power of Personal Change’!

  • PERFECT goals model for life-changing achievements: Move beyond traditional SMART goals with the PERFECT model, setting goals that inspire and lead to significant, lasting changes in all areas of your life. (You’ll get a free digital copy of my Goal Setting Book as a participant.)

Unique Training Approach

Each day builds on previous foundations for deep, exponential learning. It’s holistic, affecting every area of your life, and makes learning ‘sticky.’ You’ll get lots of practice and feedback, leaving you with a new sense of personal and professional confidence about just how much more you’re capable of—Your Super-Self!

As a performance consultant and executive coach I’ve vastly improved my effectiveness with clients since doing NLP Practitioner with Stephanie. I now have several strategies to help when clients want to change what they are doing, but don’t know how to. What I like best about NLP and coaching is that the client is in charge of their change, and it works quickly. This is a real business benefit for clients.

When relating to clients and potential clients, it’s so much easier to get on the same wavelength and have meaningful discussions that add value for everyone.

And, of course, almost every strategy that is effective with others, works just as well with my own stuff. NLP has enabled me to move myself and my business to another level of satisfaction and success.

Why Raglan?

Raglan is the perfect training destination with friendly people, no traffic or parking hassles, and stunning scenery. Enjoy wild west coast surf, inner harbour tranquillity, and various activities when you’re not in the training room.

Being away from home for a few days gives you time to make the most of the training by really focusing on you and the changes you want to achieve. You’re free to concentrate on learning without the normal day-to-day activities that can so easily distract you.

The Lonely Planet Guide says, ‘Raglan might be NZ’s perfect surfing town.’ And, ‘Raglan might also be NZ’s best-looking town. It’s exactly the sort of laid-back, charming place that sees you shuffle your itinerary to extend your stay.’ Read more about Raglan…

Raglan is a great place to hold the course – it’s a relaxed town, loads of cool shops and eating places. I enjoyed the walking facilities around the town and inlet.

Who is the course for?

The Power of Personal Change is for people who want to make changes in their personal and professional lives or positively influence others in their growth and development.

Participants come from diverse fields including business, coaching, healthcare, education, training, sales, management, engineering, and HR. They share a curiosity about what makes people ‘tick’ and the importance of developing people skills and effective communication.

Marcus Deans

I found out more about myself in those 6 days than I have in 49 years of living. I found I had a lot of defences, walls and barriers up. I pushed people away. I didn’t want people to know me because I’d already made up my mind what I thought they’d think of me, which wasn’t fair on them. I think I’ve taken those barriers down — I’ve certainly hugged a lot more people than I ever have before!
