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 2023: Monday – 30 October – Saturday 4 November 2023
Raglan, Waikato

NB: This is a stand-alone course. It’s also the first of three-block courses leading to NLP Practitioner Certification (total 18 days). That means if you decide to continue to achieve this international qualification you won’t have to start again from scratch.

Where did the Super-Self idea come from?

I was discussing with a newly qualified NLP Practitioner how I thought NLP training helped people access deeper levels of intelligence and smarter ways of thinking. She looked at me aghast.

“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 to find it seems to disappear again when you could most use it!

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.

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

We go way 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. I have a unique approach to training that works on both deeper and higher levels of mental, emotional and physical functioning.

So instead of just learning a few new processes or techniques, it will reshape the very foundation of your thinking; you’ll almost be able to 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 it’s called, ‘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? Sometimes it works. More often than not, it doesn’t. And if it doesn’t work, you’re stuck.

However, when you change your own behaviour, those around you respond to you differently.
Your new ways of thinking and being will naturally have a flow-on effect to those around you, providing you with a feedback mechanism of how you’re evolving. You’ll make the changes you want for yourself and you’ll learn ways to help others make the changes they want — with care and integrity.

SOME of the Personal and Professional Approaches Taught on The Power of Personal Change:

  • Learn simple, quick techniques to feel the way you want to feel in any given situation; for example, calm and in control instead of stressed, confident instead of unsure, or energised and motivated when you want to get things done.
  • Know what positive thinking really means and its impact on the achievement of your goals.
  • Develop acute observation skills, so you can accurately ‘read’ people and support them to achieve their goals.
  • Find out how you can be influential and persuasive — without saying a word!
  • Learn a communication model that explains how behaviours and responses are impacted by the unconscious filters we all have — and how they can be changed.
  • Identify and understand the importance of values and use them to motivate yourself and others.

What's really important
  • Learn the Blueprint for Excellence and develop the flexibility and resilience of a rubber ball — bouncing back from setbacks and over obstacles.
  • Forget SMART goals! Use the PERFECT model to clarify, set and achieve goals that will be relevant in all aspects of your life. No more self-sabotage!
  • Use specific, targeted questions to zoom in on the root cause of problems quickly and easily. These questions save time and give valuable insights into the thinking patterns driving behaviour.
  • Learn a collection of tools for understanding people’s unconscious thinking patterns and processes more easily so you can predict behaviour.
  • Tap into your own brilliance and release floods of creativity and motivation – plus, help others do the same.
  • Learn the ‘body language’ of language itself and create new, positive thought patterns and beliefs.

  • Reduce stress levels and avoid burnout, yet still get the best out of people, (including yourself) every time.
  • Discover the verbal, tonal and body language skills you need to communicate authentically, and to make sure you get your message across so people truly understand and feel understood.
  • Learn the skills used by charismatic leaders to positively and ethically influence and inspire others, both consciously and unconsciously.
  • How to read ‘between the lines’ and pick up any incongruent messages and confront these when appropriate.
  • How to gain and maintain rapport with anyone, creating co-operative personal and professional relationships.
  • How your brain works and how to programme it for success.
  • Get the users manual for your mind and learn how you create your reality.
  • Enhance your Emotional Intelligence.
  • Recognise how communication is systemic and how whatever you do (or don’t do) affects others.

The Training: A Unique Approach

Each day’s training builds upon and strengthens the foundations laid in previous days so your learning is as deep as it is exponential. It’s designed to be holistic, so it affects every area of your life and makes the learning ‘sticky.’ And you get lots of practice and feedback. So at the end of The Power of Personal Change, you’re left 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.

Small groups of participants mean you get the individual attention you deserve and the changes you want. (You won’t be just another face in a sea of faces.) I place a high value on creating a fun learning environment and a safe zone where you can feel free to take on new challenges. In order to grow and to successfully coach, mentor or lead others it’s important to continue to challenge and develop yourself.

I really valued the in-depth, dedicated time to personal development and learning practical skills I could take away and implement. The course has some amazing, practical tools for your own self-development that will also help in every interaction in life. Stephanie is wicked! Amazing knowledge that is carefully layered and crafted into the programme. She brings her personal values to life during the training and creates a great learning environment.”

Why Raglan?

Raglan is a fabulous place to come to for a training course! With friendly people, no traffic or parking hassles and wonderful scenery, Raglan has it all. It’s wild west coast surf, or inner harbour tranquility, walks and various fun activities mean there’s always something to do 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. Without the normal day to day activities that can so easily distract you, you’re free to concentrate on learning.

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…

All types of accommodation are available in Raglan depending on your requirements and budget. I can send you information about accommodation that has been recommended by previous participants.

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.

Thanks Steph! x

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!
