3 day Intermediate course


Propulsion is a 3 day course usually run over a weekend which can be attended either as a stand alone course or as progression after the Ignition course. Propulsion is where people really let go of their past self and step into their personal power and can truly become their potential and create the life to which they aspire. It is the personal development programme for people who finally want to get themselves moving into the life they deserve and to attain the success that they were born to achieve.

Upcoming courses:

  • Fri 24th – Sun 26th Mar 2023
  • Fri 11th – Sun 13th Aug 2023
The course comprises group and one-to-one sessions, practical exercises and demonstrations of techniques you can start immediately that WILL change your life. The style of the course delivery is informal with lots of opportunity for fun, discussion, questions and answers and interaction with course facilitators and other participants.

Learning Outcomes

  • How to completely let go of past inhibitions – for good
  • How to recognise and deal with unhelpful past narratives and negative self talk
  • How to embrace the Now and be the best they can possibly be
  • The secrets to personal power
  • The construction of reality – and how to construct the reality you want
  • The benefits of momentum and the value of action
  • How to cultivate determination and persistence and yield their rewards
Throughout the training you will acquire and shape your vision of who you can be, and learn how to stop accommodating the things that have previously held you back – fears, phobias, anxieties, negative experiences from the past. You will learn about the physiology of fear, how the mind affects feelings and how feelings affect the body. You will understand what you need to do day-to-day, to keep yourself focussed in times of adversity in order to stay strong.
Empowerment is the greatest gift you can give to yourself. Personal power is not always easy to accept, acknowledge or acquire, but this course can be the breakthrough for you to discover how to develop and use the innate power within you as a force for good and an agent for change.

Is this course right for me?

Can you truly say to yourself that you are achieving your full potential? If the answer to that question is no, then there will be obstacles that are holding you back. Some will be from the recent past, others may have been present your entire life. Those obstacles will have evolved from a combination of experiences, beliefs and labels that were given to you (sometimes by you, yourself) and the value system that filters your view of the world and your life. This course will support you to remove those obstacles and make room for the power that will enable you to create the life you want: work, relationships, wealth, health and happiness.

Some people say: “See it and believe it”.
We say: “Believe it and you’ll see it”.

We are so confident in the power of this course to change your life in positive ways that we offer a FULL MONEY BACK GUARANTEE! Ask yourself this: “what do I have to lose?”
