Over the past 11 years, hundreds of our clients in the USA and Australia have transformed their results in their business, health and personal lives simply by changing the way they think, act and communicate.


Our NLP Practitioner Training will help you harness the strategies in your life that are already successful whilst transforming the ones that both limit you and keep you from living your life on purpose.

Leader of possibility

Bringing your vision to life means you'll have to lead from the front learning how to inspire and enrol people. It will take courage and patience but damn you'll love how it all turns out.

Voice of influence

Knowing your needs and being able to articulate them with influence, power or authority is what gets you tangible results. You'll be very clear on how to communicate your core value.

NLP Practitioner Training with Jewells opened my eyes to a world of possibilities, opportunities and creation where I’m behaving in a manner supportive of my own success and that of others. The potential applications of what I’ve learned are extraordinary and I’m amazed to see the contribution I’m already making and impacting upon the personal and business objectives of my clients, colleagues and comrades. Committed to her students success and evolution, Jewells is truly brilliant and facilitates in a refreshingly real way. I recommend her without reservation. Being Brilliant Now!

We have 6-months together and that time will whizz past before we know it. Get set for a full transformation in how you think, act and communicate. We'll get clear on your vision connecting it with you life purpose. We'll see how your backstory compells you to perform the way you do and change any thought and behaviour patterns that no longer serve you. This is a very exciting program for those dedicated to go next level truly step into their greatness. The modules covered and how it will be delivered is shared below.

Are you ready to be brilliant now?

Be Brilliant Now The Producer


Your Vision

You have overall creative control and responsibility to bring your big dream to life. If you don't have a vision for your life how do you know where you're going? More often than not this is the primary reason why so many people simply drift from scene to scene. Deciding on your purpose and following through is the help most people need.

In this module I'll show you how to get clear, be courageous and choose your mission.  We'll map out your blueprint and the strategies you'll need to bring your BIG dream to life. 

Be Brilliant Now The Scriptwriter


Your story

In order for you to be able to enrol others in your vision, you must understand what makes you credible, why people should listen to you and be able to articulate your value with grace, authority and influence. Being at peace with your past will give you the emotional freedom you need to be a great leader.

In this module, you'll understand your own hero's journey, your emotional trigger points and how your beliefs, attitudes, decisions and storyline to-date, has shaped who you are today. You'll also be able to accept the major plot twists in your life releasing the emotional turmoil and decisions that keep sabotaging your success.

Be Brilliant Now The Star


Your Performance

You’ll have an intuitive instinct for your character and how a scene can be played to deliver a powerful performance. And for your appearance to be convincing, as The Star you must believe in your character with everything you’ve got, installing the very essence and qualities as if they were your own. The interesting twist here is to be proud of the performance you're giving. That's how Oscars are won.

In this module you'll unpack what makes you credible. You'll recognise how and why your patterns of behaviour have supported the results you have been getting. You'll also craft which attitudes, attributes and behaviours you need to be a brilliant role model.  As well as designing your own signature style.

Be Brilliant Now The Director


Your direction

Your values direct your focus. Without knowing what drives you, you will never be able to direct your focus. Who you've become is not an accident but the result of a series of choices. Imagine your day, each moment is directed by the intention of who you’re going to be. You may not be able to always direct each circumstance but you can always direct your response to them. You can call cut in the middle of a scene and edit the scenes as necessary.

In this module you'll elicit your top five values in all areas of your life plus learn why being aligned with your values is paramount for you to transform the way you think, act and communicate.

Be Brilliant Now The Audience


Your results

The desired result here is to unleash your brilliance and reward your results. Each plot twist in your life provides another hook. The Audience on the edge of their seat pondering the most powerful question of all... “How will it all turn out?”

This module is all about integration and ensuring your BIG dream, storyline, signature style and values are all aligned so you can make a massive difference sharing your best work in the world. You'll leave feeling wowed and inspired by your own capacity to be brilliant now.


Be Brilliant Now Sarah
Emerging Leader

When I first met Jewells, I was feeling unhappy with my life as a whole. Everything seemed dull on a day to day basis. I knew I wanted passion, colour, connection and meaning but I didn't know how to articulate that - let alone manifest it. When I saw the short course on body language Jewells offered at the CAE; I felt drawn to it as it provided insight into understanding why we behave the way we do. Investing in time with Jewells to get crystal clear on what is important to me, and what type of life I ultimately want to be living, was one of the most important decisions I've made.

The support and advice that Jewells gave me were invaluable! She has a unique ability to understand what I wanted to say when I couldn't find the words, and in helping to verbalise these deep and complicated thoughts, she helped me to have some big realisations. By getting clear on what I wanted, and most importantly why it had to happen, I have been able to manifest my dream of living in Mexico with my amazing partner and of living a balanced life of adventure yet comfort. I can now use what I learnt with Jewells whenever I reach a crossroads and want to make a decision that feels right to me. Thank you Jewells! You rock!!

The Networking Formula

Thank you SO, SO, SO MUCH for everything you have done for me, put up with and worked through with me. I’ve been trying to get this stuff sorted for the better part of 10 years and just never really found the right person. I knew right from the moment I met you that you were it.  I don’t think I have ever felt this light before in my life. I don’t feel so panicked and chaotic in my head and being, which is a fantastic relief that I am just not able to put into words.

The very fact that I’ve attracted two of my largest paying clients to me in the time we have worked together is pure testimony to the work we’ve done. This process isn’t for the faint-hearted. You do have to be willing to confront the demons you may have buried for a very long time, but the result is SO worth it. Don’t live one more day of feeling like crap.  A loving, colourful, crazy-ass soul is waiting to navigate the path with you, and it’s not as scary as you might think.  Cannot thank you enough Jewells – you are AMAZING more than words or actions could ever communicate.  MWAH!

Sleep meditation

When you’re busy, rest is super important. When you have a million things on your mind, getting to sleep can sometimes be really tough unless you are completely exhausted and simply collapse into bed. And this is not the way to wake up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated for the new day ahead. This meditation will help you journey into a deep, luxurious and restful sleep that remains continuous until morning. Your body will learn to expect to sleep because it knows that this is a time for it to STOP, heal and replenish itself for your next adventure. Enjoy a peaceful night sleep so you can wake up and be brilliant now.

Jewells has helped me transform my thinking and my life! I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with such a profound teacher and guide. Jewell’s generosity, support and excitement for life have made the experience a wonderful one.

Frequently Asked Questions

We answer our most popular questions and of course if you want more, sing out we'd love to hear from you. 

One client had reoccurring struggles and felt they always needed to take the hard, long road for things to have meaning. They would move forward and back, forward and back ever so slowly edging towards their goal of becoming a successful, professional, full-time singer and artist. They knew where they truly wanted to go yet challenged it at every step, that they could be the one to ‘make it’. With this lack of confidence and self-esteem, the dream kept slipping further and further away. Frustrated and with everything to gain we began a coaching relationship. By working together we identified the sabotaging triggers and limiting beliefs, the I cant’s, I won't’s and I couldn't’s. We then rebuilt, reprogrammed and rewired these thought patterns into ones that were sustainable and empowering. Within a month their confidence had increased by 40%, they were seeing clear distinctions between sabotaging and self-discipline, their energy and passion had reignited and they were once again excited about the future. Having a greater awareness of how their choices were creating their future and how they can make better choices by identifying and aligning with their values has been proved invaluable. Within 12 months of beginning her journey, she travelled to write and compose her first solo EP. She is about to launch herself in the UK.

“It’s been a gift from a goddess and a step I asked to take in becoming more attuned to a business perspective and simply doing it. Thank you so much for your generosity of spirit and courageous heart. To those considering coaching and Julie-Anne – congratulations on such a great decision! With Julie-Anne’s help, I’m making MY LIFE’S DREAM come true.” Rachel Delany – Singer/Songwriter

6 months later “Here’s to being present, here’s to stepping up and doing what it takes and especially here’s to you angel lady Julie-Anne Black who has helped me so enormously it brings tears to my eyes. This is a continuously and forever amazing journey.” Rachel Delany – Singer/Songwriter

Another client wanted to move past old mental roadblocks. Prior to coaching, they rated this area a 4 out of 10 and within 2 months of coaching they were at an 8. Excited and refreshed about the possibilities and opportunities that lay in front of them. Their personal development rated a 5 out of 10 prior to coaching and within 2 months this too had moved to an 8. What was an 8 like for them “like being very fit with endorphins flowing; energetic; excited; content; silent and peaceful”.

“Julie-Anne is fun, open and intuitive and focussed on moving her clients forward in a positive way, and of helping them to remove barriers to growth. My coaching occurred in a year of great turmoil, but positive change for me and Julie-Anne was an element contributing to my growth.” Nick Wardrop – Environmental Engineer

This client wanted to change careers but didn’t think they had the courage to do so. Once they recognised how they were blaming and limiting themselves the shift was immediate and action was taken instantly. Now they still feel the fear, the difference is they use it as a friend and make decisions utilising its strength. They no longer limit themselves because of it.

“If you’re not sure whether to take on Julie-Anne as a life coach all I can say is give her the chance to turn your life around, you won’t regret it. Julie-Anne has been coaching me for the past three months and she has made me accountable for my own actions, given me the tools and the courage to actually follow my passion and to stop making excuses. I’m heading in a new, colourful and exciting direction and it was so wonderful getting to this position with the help of such a wonderful woman in a supportive, creative and effervescent environment. The possibilities are endless.” Shakira Piggot – Music Producer

Our mentoring programs support you to think differently, bust through mental roadblocks quickly so you can achieve spectacular results consistently.

Bottom line: we see our role is to help you let go of any emotional baggage, frustrations and perceived limits so you can develop new strategies, create a compelling vision for your future and produce the life you’ll love to live.

Mentoring is a tool that can allow anyone to change and enhance the quality of their life. It is a process of discovery, experimentation, curiosity and creativity where you can fully, completely and lovingly get to know the deepest depths of yourself.

It allows you to take responsibility for your actions, reactions and results in all areas of your life. It is definitely exciting and sometimes confrontational to know yourself with such authenticity.

I look back to how I was without it and rejoice in who I am now because of it. There are many great things about being coached and mentored and one of them is how it empowers you to commit to the life you dream of and succeed in making it your reality. It's future-focused, holistic and a game changer for anyone wanting to be brilliant now. If you know things must change and you also know the only person to make the change is you then you’re in the right place. Make it easier for yourself and get mentored today.

Firstly you can expect a massive high five and celebration of you!!! 

The coaching will probably be different from what you might have expected because once we have gathered enough information about your problem we begin to move forward.

As your alternative health care coach, I have been trained and certified in Coaching, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Time Line Therapy®, Hypnosis, Psychosomatic Therapy, Journey work etc at the Master Coach and Trainer level and will be using these techniques. 

It is very important for us to discover the internal thought process of HOW you create the problem. We are interested in identifying your strategy of how you do it rather than why. Because our focus is on structure, that means that, once we discover it, we can move on and focus on having the problem disappear very quickly.

The coaching process allows you to learn new ways of communicating with yourself and those around you. You will reconnect and realign yourself to know internally who you are, what you want and where you’re going. In other words being who you need to BE, to do what you want to DO in order to have what you want to HAVE. Once your relationship with yourself blossoms you will find that wealth and transformation are inevitable. You grow.

I'd love to be able to say a resounding YES! Absolutely it will work for you! And 100% it can.  The truth is the only way it's going to work for you is if you also do the work necessary.

It is important that you stubbornly focus on what you want. The people who are the happiest over-all in life are those who recognise that you have a choice to focus on what you don’t want or what you DO want. You can focus on negative emotions and things that make you feel bad, or you can focus on positive emotions and things that make you feel good. It is your choice. After the sessions, YOU MUST FOCUS ON WHAT YOU WANT and TAKE ACTION and this may include you’re enforcing your boundaries. These steps are for you to perform OUTSIDE the training room, and they are not in the teacher's control - therefore no responsibility can or will be accepted for your results not achieved.

If you feel your old behaviour/problem reappearing, then you must refuse to run that pattern again. Please remember that we have the utmost total and complete respect for you and absolutely no respect for your old problems.

Finally, there is no magic pill so to speak but I'm fairly confident that with good commitment and work on your part, and your willingness to trust this process and trust your guide you can achieve what it is you want to achieve. 


The direct answer is no.

When we have our Blockbuster Discovery session together I will ask you a series of questions. The process is for me to assess just as much as I expect you to assess if we have that special connection to make magic so you can achieve and surpass your goals.

I will be asking myself "is this a client that I want to work with?” "Do I feel excited to work with you and do I feel like I can really help you achieve the results you want?" 

If I love you and you love me – I will really hope that it’s a yes but at the end of the call what I really want to do is bring you to a decision.

And if I don’t think it will work I'll let you know that I don’t think this is the right fit and here’s why, I think you need someone with a different skill set to me to help you with what you want to achieve and if I can refer I'll refer you to someone else.

And if we both come to a full-bodied YES let's do this, then we will continue to the onboarding process. YAY!


Welcome to the commencement of an epic journey to emotional freedom. Now we will schedule a mutually convenient day and time to chat about your needs, wants and desires. Prior to your this session think about what goals you want to achieve during our time together. What top 3 goals will make this the best decision, the turning point in your life. Make them juicy and be passionate about them. You will also be given a Blockbuster Discovery Questionnaire to complete prior to your session as this will guide you to contemplate your needs. What is it you truly want?

In each session, you will discover, learn and re-acquaint yourself with and master different skills and techniques. Some weeks you will be given an actual assignment that must be completed for home play, however in all weeks, for you to get the very best out of this program it will be up to you to demonstrate and put into practice the tools you learn within our sessions. The clients that diligently practice and master these skills will benefit the most from our coaching relationship.
