I have learnt so much from this Empowering Positive Change course.  I have been inspired, by the tools provided by Nelson Soper to enable me to change my life to the “ME”.


Karleen Turia

I am so privileged to have taken part of this programme.  I can’t explain how thankful I am to have learnt all that I have in the past 4 days. Absolutely grateful to have had Nelson (Uncle) he he!! As a tutor.


Vivian Rikona

What an absolute blessing to be a part of this course.  Never have I felt so inspired by a tutor.  Uncle Nelson you are a blessing, blessing, blessing.  May God bless you more than what you have blessed me

Great self awareness

Get the mind thinking, outside the square.

Think about others.

Gary Reid

This is the second time I done this course and if you asked me at the beginning of it my comments

would have “ho hum” “have already done it”

Don’t things change! After completing the course

Tonita Tewhakaara

I feel that I got to know more about myself, more about the way I think feel and act.

This course helped me a lot to realize what’s a keeper and what’s not in my life.

This course will help me in the long run for me and my children to get through the hardest days and to make good decisions.

Genvea Rikona

I will be able to achieve my goals of understanding & accepting people for who they are. I am able to put myself first without the feeling of guilt. I am confident that I will be a better mother & wife I am, I know I can be even better.

Vicki Macann

The program is only as good as the presenter and would recommend this course to everyone whether they think they need it or not. If you come with an open mind you will learn from it no matter what stage you are currently at. It will help me in all 3 areas of my life. It was well worth taking the four days away from work which I felt I could not loose from schedule. Highly recommend it.

Michele Martin

Great, wow, keep up the good work.

Atiria Hapa

This course as great, learnt a lot about myself, and how to communicate better with other people. and really enjoyed it. Thank you

Patrick Mohi

I was actually amazed at how this course works with Precognitive Alignments to find out what type of people we are, i found out more about myself then i ever did. Thanks heaps.

Tuti Borell

 Thank you. This has helped me understand more about me; however the greatest value achieved today is learning how to improve my relationship with my students, husband and children. Wish i could take the 4 day course.

Penny Hall

Saw a little more of myself than i thought. Lots to think about. Valuable as a social worker, to support me in how i work with my clients.

Merania Perich

Absolutely informative for myself. Although i have been through an intensive self-development there is always more to learn about myself and others. Today i have learnt so much more about myself and characteristics have been clearly explained. I have appreciated learning about the precognitive alignments and there descriptions and names

I have appreciated the opportunity to learn and participatein the one day course "Clear communication". Nelsom presented the information in an  interesting and fun way. I now feel i will be more able to understand other nature typed (other than my own), for more effective communication.

Shirlene Burleigh

This course was aptly timed for me. I have learnt quite a bit about my own nature as well as gaining skills to recognize natures of other people. I will be using this newly gained knowledge in my personal contact this weekend. Thanks for the opportunity to attend. I will be recommending Kiwi Family trust course to others.
