I thought I’d learn doctrines

“I thought I would learn doctrines and philosophies that would be opposite to my cultural map of the world.  In fact it only enhanced it even more. My relationship with my wairua has strengthened 10 fold.

The biggest benefit I have received is the realisation that I have the answers to solving my issues and obstacles and that wellbeing is a state of mind.

I recommend this Raglan course, it’s value for money and Steph is a great trainer.

pic-suzanneWould Training Apply in ‘Real Life’?

“Before commencing the MetaMorphosis NLP Practitioner training I really had concerns about whether I was just going on another training course? How could I apply this in ‘real life’?

Examples of NLP’s Application

First I applied it to myself. I was going through a relationship split at the time of MetaMorphosis 101 (the first block of Practitioner Training) and was feeling very depressed and over-emotional, over-sensitive. The humorous ‘mantra’ that Steph gave us was instantly life changing. The NLP communication model showed that holding on to an emotion like sadness for longer than 90 seconds was impossible unless we were ‘feeding’ it with further sad thoughts. Stop the thoughts, stop the state, stop the behaviour. So simple and yet so profound.

Biggest Benefits
  1. It’s given me a wealth of tools to use to help myself and others grow exponentially in all areas of life.
  2. Communication with ourselves and others is a major key to everything and so any improvement on that has a major impact on our perception of reality/life.
Overall Impact

Until recently, I didn’t truly believe that I had all the skills necessary to go out and make a business coaching/helping others. Now I can see that it is possible, with everything I already know now.

But would I recommend it?

The NLP Practitioner Training is exceptional value for money. Stephanie has a wealth of knowledge and life experience. What I appreciated the most was her holistic/spiritual open-mindedness, especially coming from my own alternative health slant. Her way of teaching has only enhanced my original beliefs of mind/body/soul connectedness.”

Walking the Talk

“I have completed 18 days of NLP training with Stephanie at Raglan and was, from the very first day impressed that here was a trainer who walked the talk. This was nowhere more evident than the perceptive challenges and empowering elicitation of our own resourcefulness.

My training further verified all the recommendations of Stephanie that I had received: her breadth of knowledge, her engaging personality and belief that learning is fun, and the delivery of exciting training in a supportive way.

My training has been both empowering and immensely fulfilling and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to ‘become themselves’ or learn the essentials of NLP.”

I have more self-confidence

“I was pretty unsure about what to expect, but I had an open mind and wanted to make the most of the whole thing. I knew I would be challenged but I was prepared for that – or so I thought! I wanted to be able to perceive and understand the issues that clients present with, to be more in control of my own mind and be able to programme it for success – to learn how. I absolutely solved all these issues with NLP. What I need now is to put it into practice. I intend to use this in all areas and intend to build on what I have learnt.”

“The NLP Practitioner training really has changed my life and how I view things, experiences, people, virtually everything. I feel like I am starting over and so full of possibilities. Very exciting! My three biggest benefits are that I have more self-confidence, more self-awareness and more awareness of others’ perception.”

Julie Rowlands – Professional Coach


What HASN’T changed since doing NLP!

“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.

In facilitation settings it’s so much easier to create the environment where people not only learn effectively on the day, but have the tools to take that learning away and quickly apply it in the right situations. I now have more effective tools in my toolkit, and that makes my life at the front of the room much simpler, as well as making it more enjoyable for both me and the people I’m facilitating.

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.

Great Name!

“People in a helping role always talk about the need to build rapport with the people they are helping. Rapport building is generally considered to be the most important step in any intervention, however it is also often approached with some complacency by the person in the helping role.

I too was one of those guilty of this — until I went to MetaMorphosis 101-The Power of Personal Change. I have, through the techniques taught and practised on 101, discovered the amazing benefits (for both the helper and the person being helped) of having a sense of trust and comfort throughout the helping session.

Completing 101 gave me the skills I needed to safely and resourcefully challenge clients with their presenting issues. This was an area I found most difficult in the past and now find I can quickly and effectively get to the source of the issue rather than work around the presenting symptoms.

Doing 101 was about becoming a more resourceful counsellor than I was before. And completing the practitioner training carried the learning further to help me grow into a more rounded and resourceful person. Under the skilful and caring guidance of Stephanie, myself and the others were taken on a journey with ’Rinpec’…to discover our own pearl and how to help others find their pearl.

“MetaMorphosis is truly a most appropriate name for Stephanie to use, as the 18-day journey through the practitioner training had me feeling like I evolved from a leaf eating caterpillar into an air borne butterfly.”

Joanna Budai, Careers Consultant and NLP Practitioner



“I valued the ability to work with other people who also value NLP, exploration of the human mind and constantly increasing my sensory acuity. 18 day is far too short – have you considered doing this over a lifetime? (he, he, he!) NLP is the most stunning set of tools for personal change which have implications in business, personal life, growth – in fact the skills learned in NLP training are able to be utilised in ALL walks of life. Steph is unique, superb, an excellent teacher. I loved it, loved it all. I’ll really miss having my batteries recharged by the energy in this room.”

Brent Hopkins, Trainer, Dunedin NZ

Confident and Competent

NLP Practitioner Training feedback“I found Stephanie to be a wonderful teacher – she has an incredible way with words and is an exceptional story teller, which I now realise is so important in the process of NLP. She is extremely experienced and knowledgeable in teaching NLP processes and this was very apparent in her organisation and teaching style.

I found the venue good with respect to it’s central location. However, on 101 an202 it tended to be a bit cold, but was better on 303. I enjoyed being away from home for the course, and Raglan was perfect, having time every night on my own to reflect on what we had learned that day was vital in the learning process in my opinion. It was a big commitment being away for so long but worth the effort.

I found the amount of relaxation we did in 202 and 303 was really helpful for my learning, and is something I am making time for daily as I found it so beneficial. For me it wasn’t until the 303 course, that everything seemed to chick together and make sense. I loved having the opportunity to see a client on the last day as this reinforced that I could use what I had learned on a complete stranger with good effect. I think this consolidated my belief that the processes work and that I could be an NLP Practitioner. out in the real world.

I felt the course was value for money – having completed the first block of Coach training with another provider, I was reluctant to continue along this line as I did not feel it was value for money. I found that what I learned in NLP training suited me a lot better as it was so practical, lots of time to practise every exercise, to reflect on what we had learned and fine tune before moving on to the next process. I feel quite confident and competent to go out and work with people using these processes – I did not feel like this after my coach training.

Since coming home I have had many opportunities to use what I have learned. Even just in everyday conversations – I am actually listening to what a person is saying now and know I now have the choice about whether I want to be actively engaged in the conversation or a reflective listener.

The exercise I seemed to have an affinity for the most was the timeline processes. I feel this process is really valuable with limiting beliefs and emotions as at some point, some where they began to be a problem affecting life today. Having a technique that subconsciously identifies when that was and a way of healing that memory is invaluable in my opinion.

This is the area that I personally found to be of the most value in the training for me as I felt like several beliefs that have been holding me back and lingering for a long time, which I have not been able to shift using other techniques just peeled off.

I found the course material to be of a really high standard and it is user-friendly.

Overall a great course, that for me was life changing.”
Lots of love

Feeling of Happiness and Joy

Ela_Badea - MetaMorphosis NLP Practitioner trainingEla has a lot more to say about her NLP Practitioner Training with MetaMorphosis than she writes below!

Read her full testimonial

“If before I felt unsure or I had some doubts in regards to what I want to do in my life, since I finished the training I have no doubt about myself and I have an enormous feeling of happiness and joy that makes others turn around and wonder what happened to me…

I tell everybody that the Metamorphosis NLP training is much more relaxing than a 3 week holiday in a 5-star luxury holiday resort with spa, massage, food and all the stuff. Why? Because your mind needs a rest, a break from everything that is part of your normal routine, and even planning a holiday and travelling could be stressful and exhausting. You just need some time for Yourself.

The Metamorphosis NLP Practitioner Training was the best investment I have ever done, for myself and my life. We invest in cars, houses, hi-tech devices and other material goods. Being busy in obtaining these things, we sometimes forget about ourselves. The best investment we can do is in ourselves. Then we will be able to acquire other things.

So, how was my holiday in Raglan at the Metamorphosis NLP Resort? The most relaxing holiday I have ever been on and the training was by far the best I have done (and I’ve had lots in my life, formal and informal as well). Nothing compares with being away from home, work and other “distractions” and learning NLP in a beautiful place like Raglan and in your own pace. This really helps you to stay focused on yourself and be able to easily assimilate the new learnings. I’ve spent 3 full weeks on the training and, even it was a learning experience, I didn’t have the feeling of being overwhelmed by the information…and it was a lot to carry on. I was like a sponge that absorbs everything in a bit and when it dries out, it absorbs even much more. Steph used her NLP skills and great teaching experience in creating a natural and easy learning experience for all the participants.

I felt absolutely safe and comfortable with expressing myself and working with my colleagues in achieving the best results from the practical exercises we did. We worked with our own “materials” – real issues, life challenges and limiting beliefs about ourselves – and absolutely nothing was weird and made me feel out of my comfort zone (in the past that would have been a real problem).

I am a free person who knows who she is, what she wants and how to get there. I am a person who is able to have a positive experience from everything and influence positively others’ lives as well. For being the change you want to see in others, you need to change yourself first. This is how it works, not the other way around. And finally I understood why it is like this. (I really recommend you to do the course; it will help you as well).

I laughed more than I can remember and I had the time of my life. Plus, I discovered I am funny as well (weird, I don’t know how Steph did it…I’m a serious person ?). I was absolutely at ease with her teaching style and being there in the training environment. I just loved being there and grateful for having the chance to meet Steph in person.”
