Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Certification training

Imagine having the manual to master your mind. That's what NLP can help you achieve.

NLP is the study of human excellence. It helps you understand why and how you communicate both internally with yourself and externally with those around you. We're currently running an Introduction to NLP masterclass called Born For Success as well as Internationally accredited NLP Practitioner Training programs. Our presentations specifically deliver fun and refreshing ways for you to think differently for immediately improved results so you can escape Groundhog Day, direct your future and be the star of your life.

Jewells is a mind-blowing facilitator in every way. Besides the fact that she lives what she teaches and knows it intimately, she has an amazing gift to be able to hold you as you stretch your wings to fly. Her insight and ability to BE WITH YOU, enable the gentle unfolding and uplifting of your heart, soul and spirit. Thanks Jewells.

Mentoring helps you master your mind so you can be brilliant now making a massive difference sharing your best work in the world.

I produced this program for Caroline who wrote “I have worked with Julie-Anne over quite a few months and never experienced such personal insight and growth. With Julie-Anne’s careful and loving guidance, my life has moved profoundly. She nurtured my heart, challenged my mind, questioned my assumptions and offered me her wisdom. Coaches are everywhere. Great coaches are rare and Julie-Anne is in the realm of the truly amazing!”

And for Andrew who said "The results were mind blowing! Prior to Julie-Anne I had always struggled with my confidence and to think on my feet and trust my instincts. So when Julie-Anne showed me how to use my body and mind to focus on the successful completion of the outcome, I was blown away with how powerful it was.”

Knowing that these and thousands more creative entrepreneurs and emerging leaders, just like you, are now making a massive difference sharing their best work in the world because they not only found the courage to face their inner demons, they set new standard, defied the odds, and stepped up. And I am so grateful that I was able to play a pivotal role in helping them take centre stage and be brilliant now.

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.

What specialised skills or experience do you bring to your teaching?

In 2005 I founded Be Brilliant Now with the desire to create a supportive environment fostering change, growth and excellence. Since then, I've developed a diverse range of personal transformation, wellness and career enhancement trainings. >>Click to see available Masterclasses: 

Being one of Australia’s leading NLP Trainers, I work with emerging leaders, creative entrepreneurs and BIG dreaming high achievers to provide powerful principles, tools and dialogue to clarify your purpose and goals, giving practical insights to assist you to succeed.

Detailed knowledge of a wide range of modalities has become the key to achieving high levels of success with my students and coaching clients. 

Prior to entering the world of Personal Development, I spent 22 years years in the television and event industries managing teams from 8 - 800. Some career highlights were producing Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, Comedians For A Cause and a Production Manager for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games Opening and Closing Ceremonies. I have worked intimately with high pressure, tight deadlines and strict budgets. This paradigm has served me to be deeply committed to the importance of effective communication, dedication, focus, discipline and courage.

What is your philosophy about teaching?

I believe learning is active not passive that's why I ensure that we focus on a learn / do model. I'll support you to think differently, bust through mental roadblocks quickly so you can achieve spectacular results consistently. It is your responsibility to put the practical tools I'll share with you into daily use. That will give you the most immediate and long-lasting results.

All of our programs are a process of discovery, experimentation, curiosity and creativity with fun, easy to master techniques to help you fully, completely and lovingly get to know the deepest depths of yourself and therefore make the biggest difference in the world.

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

I look back to how I was without the training I've had and rejoice in who I am now because of it.

Our programs are 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 enrol today.

What can I expect?

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

The mentoring and training I offer will probably be different from what you might have expected because I like to make it as interesting and fun for you to achieve the most powerful and profound transformation possible.

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

Throughout everything Be Brilliant Now offers, it is very important for us to discover the internal thought process of HOW you create the problem. We are interested in helping you to identify 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.

Our training 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.

Will it work for me?

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. 

Do you work with everyone?

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 you just as much as I expect you to assess me and if we have that special connection to make magic so you can achieve and surpass your goals then we will explore your options from there.

I will be asking myself "Will this student play well with others to help create a high performing environment?” "Do I feel excited to work with you and do I feel like you joining our program, you will receive the results you're seeking?" 

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 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!

Which program is right for me?

As soon as we've said yes to working together we'll work out which program is going to give you the most profound and powerful results.

Choosing the right program will be dependent on your needs and your BIG dream and the amount of support you want to make it happen.
