Success Stories

Practicing Skills for Real

"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

"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

"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/ practitioner."

Testimonial – from Tracy Baker-Lawrence, Psychologist, Private practice

"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."

Tristina, Queenstown, NZ, 2010

"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

"Thank you Sonya for changing my life. I can′t believe the change in 5 sessions.

  • I lost 5 kgs
  • I feel lighter
  • I don′t need to always be in control
  • I don′t have to do everything to be liked
  • My mind is much clearer
  • I feel more confident

One of the biggest changes was allowing me to grieve for my son and accept his death after nearly 3 years. I had a constant emptiness which I filled with food and it has gone now. I know I can achieve anything I want and be successful at that. My last session was early May. In May I achieved my highest income achieving month ever whilst dealing with my father being diagnosed with a terminal illness, falling in love with a new man and spending time with both. My business partner away overseas. Running a seperate project part time. Wow I can′t believe all this happened in such a short space of time. Sonya thank you."

Bonnie Ries, A Table for Six, Brisbane, Australia, July 2008

"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

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

"Mark at Blue-Sky Transformation was wonderful to work with. He was both very personal and professional during our sessions. The Neuro-Linguistic Programming ( NLP) techniques that I worked through with Mark made an immediate difference in my personal and professional life planning. Not only did these techniques help me, but they are very helpful to me in my work in the field of peace building and conflict resolution in post-conflict countries. Top Qualities: Great Results, Personable, Good Value"

David Kozar, Peace Building and Conflict Resolution, Intake Office at Queensland Government Department of Justice and Attorney, 2009

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

"Thank you Sonya for helping me rediscover the parts of myself that had gotten lost along the way. It is something I have tried to do on my own for too long and without success. I wish I had come to see you long ago. You have made a huge difference in my life and the lives of my family. I really liked the one on one sessions with Sonya. I felt like I was able to work through issues without having to verbalise every detail. I am now able to focus on the important things in life with more clarity than before. I certainly wouldn′t be able to see a more positive future for myself if I hadn′t been to see Sonya. I am now able to go through my life more happy than I have been in a long time."

Carla, a wonderful human, Brisbane, Australia, June 2008

I noticed an immediate improvement in awareness between my conscious and unconscious. I′m sure quality will only improve from here.

Attended a corporate training, 2010

Fantastic, incredibly helpful, and as each day goes by, the new tools are becoming second nature.

"Sonya has helped me to clarify my thoughts and make the decisions that I need to make. Her sessions have also opened my mind to views of my situation that I weren′t aware of before. I enjoyed working with her and these sessions made it possible for me to open up and resolve the issues that I had. And I think part of that is because Sonya has managed to keep our sessions content free so that we were tackling on the how and why more than about what. It allowed me to trust and relax easier because I didn’t feel ashamed of myself. Thanks for helping!"

Jens Grunedler, General Manager, Taste - for the love of cooking, 2007

Sonya has been instrumental in creating the life I desire. I am now able to dream and set goals for both my personal and professional life. Thank you Sonya, I will always value our time spent together and will be forever grateful for your empathy and wisdom.

Edward Charles, Manager, Library Technology at Rodney District Council, 2006

Sonya has an excellent grasp of the areas of both Emotional Intelligence and Neuro-Linguistic Programming so a session with her will likely produce a very desirable outcome. Her professional style, excellent communications and ability to work with her client to bring about continuous improvements, virtually guarantee that her guidance will almost certainly realise tangible benefits for you.

Grant Gibson, Regional Sales Manager, Asia-Pacific at Jade Software Corporation Limited, 2006

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
