Did you know

…We are all Change Agents, because we all influence others and ourselves on a daily basis. The difference is, some make change with skill and some don’t. The ones who do it with skill are the ones who get rewarded



Do you want to influence others?

Does your profession require you to effectively and ethically influence others to change for a better future? Do you influence others in your life on a daily basis, even without a fancy title?

“NLP cannot be dismissed as just another hustle. Its theoretical underpinnings represent an ambitious attempt to codify and synthesize the insights of linguistics, body language and the study of communication systems.” ~ Psychology Today

We are all Change Agents, because we all influence others and ourselves on a daily basis. The difference is that some instigate change with themselves and others with skill, and some don’t. The ones who do it with skill and precision are the one who get the rewards.
Some people work to influence others professionally, from healing professionals to coaches, from alternative health providers to corporate consultants, from care givers to mentors. We call people who influence others for a greater outcome: “Change Agents”. You might be a Change Agent now, or in the process of transitioning yourself to become a Change Agent. When you instigate change with skill to generate a result, the outcome will be extremely rewarding on multiple levels.

“(NLP) offers the potential for making changes without the usual agony that accompanies these phenomena…Thus it affords the opportunity to gain flexibility, creativity and greater freedom of action than most of us now know…”

Trai?ning and Development Journal

NLP helps you to rapidly elevate your skill level and effectiveness to build deep rapport, heighten your awareness, reading your client’s unconscious signals, decode the hidden value and belief structure, thought patterns and much more. With NLP you can design more effective results and future oriented solutions or interventions. You will have more tools to work around blocks, resistance, hesitation or limiting beliefs, and help your staff or clients to gain deep insight. In short, you will dramatically become more effective in the art of consulting, coaching, healing, education and parenting.


Training structure was thought out efficiently and effectively, made group really think hard and pay attention to details. This made us think for ourselves to obtain better understanding and solutions without giving away the answers.

Why is NLP so brilliantly effective in this area?

There are many reasons, but the most prominent ones are that this particular domain (Change) compared to other areas that NLP has branched into has had:

  • The most exploration
  • The most vetting
  • The most time since NLP’s origin
  • The most modelling and discovery, and essentially
  • The most revolution
NLP Practitioner – Enhancing your abilities to assist others on all levels.

“NLP has single-handedly shaped and created the Self-Help industry. Famous motivational speakers like Anthony Robbins have their roots in NLP, and so do many others.”

NLP skills taught today are far more efficiently learned and applied than when it were back in the early exploratory days of NLP’s childhood in the 70′s and early 80′s.
This is why well known motivational speakers who were trained in NLP are so effective in transforming minds in seconds or minutes; they are using NLP on their subjects, students and viewers and have been for so long now. Unlike some of the quick NLP Trainings and large scale trainings that abound, we focus on the learning product, your experience, and bringing great practitioners into the world above everything else.

“NLP is one of the biggest breakthroughs in the technology of achievement and human excellence.”

~ Time Magazine

What makes NLP so powerfully effective?

NLP has many distinctive characteristics that makes it so powerfully effective, and here are just a few:

NLP enhances your ability to build relationships and influence with integrity
Rapport building is one of the core NLP foundations that help you create a trusting relationship with your client to instigate effective change rapidly. Have you ever been successful with others when there is no rapport or low levels of rapport? Without rapport, there will be no trust, or influence to speak of.
NLP focuses on the processes of change, not on the content
Why? Have you ever got lost in other people’s use of words, meanings and interpretations? NLP shows how your client structures their thoughts and how they assign meanings to their experiences and the conclusions they generate. You can use what seems to be endless and effective NLP processes (or patterns) to cut through the maze that is their world and get to what is important with precision.

I’ve found the increased self-awareness and self-editing processes to have much wider-reaching uses and implications than I had been expecting and have used these tools in my personal life as well as, if not more, than in my professional life. These processes and ideas were harder to learn and sometimes felt somewhat strange at the time of training, but I can definitely see the benefit of learning these new skills.
    Queenstown, NZ, 2010
NLP works with your ability to direct or redirect thinking
Have you ever met individuals, teams and leaders in an organisation who have become so stuck in their minds and thinking, which keeps them getting into the situations that cause failure? NLP will help you skillfully frame any situation and re-direct people to think in the direction that generates choices and results. By learning NLP, you will gain the skills to think on multiple levels and perspectives with clarity.
NLP develops your ability to communicate effectively
Resistance and blockages to progress can be overcome in several ways in NLP. One of the ways is using NLP to construct multi layered communications that engage the client on all levels and this bypasses conscious objections. This means you can get your message across artfully and effectively.
NLP is a must have tool if you are working with creating ecological change for yourself and others.

"Both Sonya and Mark are certainly expert trainers in the field of NLP. They are highly effective, skillful and fully of integrity. NLP tools and skills that I have gained have helped me personally and professionally. It has enhanced my capability and as a result, transforming my business. NLP really enhanced my leadership skills that provided me with immediate results.
All these changes were from the first 8 days of the course. This course is so valuable that I highly recommend to anyone who is serious about their own development and success.
I have worked with other NLP trainers, but will only recommend Sonya and Mark at Blue-Sky Transformation to you to get the Real NLP and make a difference in your life."     Vicki Sparks, Owner ConnectWorking, Australia, 2009-2010

"Mark has great knowledge and a passion for training that makes learning and changing easy. Mark and Sonya have some cool ideas that are pragmatic and effective in both business and personal development applications. Mark is humorous and dynamic in his training style. Mark and Sonya are a must for anyone wanting to change and learn in today′s turbulent climate."
      John Thompson, Managing Director and NLP Trainer, Metropolis UK, 2009

Is this course for me?

For those who want to hone their skills to improve their ability to assist others with profound skills and impacts, NLP will dramatically extend and build your ability to be a effective change agent, in whatever role or industry you are in.NLP dramatically increases your ability to create choices and flexibility in managing your behaviours, states, thinking and experiences – ultimately enabling you to lead the way into a new, exciting, and compelling future.

“NLP could be the most important synthesis of knowledge about human communication to emerge since the sixties.” ~ Science Digest

NLP makes “deciding what is best for you and the situation” possible. It goes beyond just clear thinking. In today’s world we are all under a multitude of influences and social dynamics. NLP helps you understand and notice these dynamics so you can make decisions with ease.

What if I was trained by another organisation?

For those who have already undergone some training by another organisation, ITA or Non-ITA, we have a special page dedicated to this topic. Trained by other Organizations covers how to gain the ITA NLP Classic Code Practitioner Qualification, or the ITA New Code Practitioner Qualification. It would be great to take a look at these links and then give us a call to get an idea how close your training might be so that you can continue on your learning journey with us.

More Success Stories

Our effectiveness as coaches, consultants and trainers is closely related; as we coach and consult on a regular basis, this increases our ability to train in the area of human behavior, organizational change and specifically about coaching for personal performance. As we continue to train on a regular basis, this increases and stretches our experience and ultimately our effectiveness as coaches. So, we have a mixture of training and coaching testimonies here.

Testimony from within Queensland State Government

"Sonya is a fantastic trainer and exponent of NLP and brings a depth of knowledge and understanding that is critical when modelling such a technology. I waited 20 years to find the right provider to gain my certification as an NLP practitioner and I am so glad that I did. For anyone who is interested in experiencing true NLP, I highly recommend Sonya to you."
      Scott Thompson, Change and Benefits Manager at Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation, Queensland Government, 2010
Testimony from a Psychologist

“The NLP training that I have completed over 24 days with Mark and Sonya Spencer has been some of the best training I have had the privilege of undertaking in my career. I have found Mark and Sonya’s rapport building skills, expertise, knowledge -in a broad range of psychological areas as well as NLP – and brilliant application of methods very inspirational as a practitioner interested in effective change. Additionally I have found them to be some of the most ethically minded and respectful teachers and practitioners I have worked with over the past 15 years training and practicing in psychology. And generous and funny.

I have witnessed on numerous occasions their exceptional rapport building skills result in an ability to work with very little content from clients and shift the client in a positive direction in one session. My own experience as a ‘client’ of theirs in training, using a real issue in one short session, was to process the issue in creative ways that brought about lasting change for me. Through Mark and Sonya’s training I have further enhanced my ability to build rapport – relationship being the cornerstone of good therapeutic work – and then through use of language and other tools empower people to shift their emotional state to a preferred one in their chosen context. Mark and Sonya work with a diverse range of clients using NLP, from severely depressed clients to special needs children and people with terminal illnesses, and numerous case studies show the positive impact this model can have on a broad range of issues.

I wholeheartedly believe that the impact of NLP is so powerful and helpful to clients that it is an essential tool in the psychologists kitbag. I believe NLP should be an integral part of all psychology degrees; It is based on how people learn, how we associate into their experiences, how we can use language to create change — what I predominantly do as a psychologist, but in a brief format, using creative and respectful tools that result in sustainable change and empowerment.

I am very grateful to both Mark and Sonya for introducing me to NLP. It has greatly enhanced my skills and confidence as a psychologist and practitioner.”

    Tracy Baker-Lawrence, Psychologist, Private practice

Testimony from the teaching profession

Thank you Sonya, for giving me the tools and ability to get answers in my life.
I enjoy the fact that you work with the whole mind, body and spirit, not jus the problem. You get to the core of what is happening. It is great to feel the (personal) power when I start to see everything fall into place. The tools you offered had supported me and helped me find which direction I want to go, and when I am on my own, I can approach other situations using these tools.

      Anita Dida, Early Childhood Head Teacher, Wellesley Kindergarten, 2005
Testimony from Queensland Government

“Mark is a first class trainer and a great model for NLP practitioners everywhere. He really ‘walks the talk’ and is very adept at translating complex concepts and ideas into simple language. Mark′s international experience in the IT sector provides him with an enviable body of knowledge that can be harnessed by organisations that he works with. I would recommend Mark highly to anyone considering engaging him for an assignment.”      Scott Thompson, Change and Benefits Manager at Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation, Queensland Government, 2010
Testimony from an attendee at a Corporate Training

I noticed an immediate improvement in awareness between my conscious and un conscious. I’m sure quality will only improve from here.
    Attended a corporate training, 2010

Testimony from specific Sales and Effectiveness Training

"The training will help me with the quality of my personal life, I’ve seen results since the training, and have made choices I wouldn’t have done before — really positive! I enjoyed learning the new applications of NLP each day and how I could use the tools Sonya and Mark taught us in my personal life. They always made me feel completely comfortable with expressing how I felt and if I didn’t understand anything, they were happy to demonstrate or explain further, without making me feel stupid."
