For self conscious professionals 

Course Overview:

Would you like to develop your self confidence so that it no longer holds you back in your career?

It’s so frustrating to feel so self conscious that you hold yourself back, can’t contribute at work and end up hiding your potential.

This course will give you the structure that I have been using with my private clients for the last ten years to build their self esteem and self confidence.

Let me share with you the key ideas from the cognitive behavioural sciences that I have specialised in, and that I know help men and women with their sense of self worth.woman thinking | Inner Coaching | image

Imagine not taking things personally and feeling the freedom to play an important part in your work. Imagine being productive and accountable, with respect and love for yourself, and that great feeling of being in control of your life, capable and confident and worthy.

It is so possible. You just need to learn how.

Nicole, a Company Secretary and single Mother, found this so useful, she said she wished all her friends and family and her son would realise this important message and the difference this unconditional self worth brings. She plans to teach and advocate this method to all the people she loves. Let me teach it to you too.

As I applied these teachings and techniques to my own life, I have grown from the most self conscious person, blushing whenever I had to talk, to a woman who has spoken confidently at conferences in front of 700 people and hosting my own internet TV shows.

You will learn

In this online course (which can be run as an in-house live one day event or 4 week course) you will learn:

  • How to use your self consciousness in the positive, that is, to develop positive self awareness
  • To apply the distinction between self esteem and self confidence that will change your thinking for the better
  • How to develop your confidence even more
  • How to never lose your self esteem again
  • How to develop a healthy relationship to your emotions
  • To apply the understanding of beneficial responsibility and accountability, improving your relationships and communication skills
  • How to develop a realistically optimistic and positive outlook on life

I’ve been coaching and training individuals for the last 12 years, and I specialise in communicating and relating. And from all my studies and experience, I find these are the foundational and most important building blocks for people to have a healthy, happy and productive life!

NOTE: This course is aimed at professionals who often feel anxious and self conscious, especially at work, and find that they self-sabotage, and don’t behave for their own best interest. They also tend to find conflict very difficult and take things personally. This class is NOT for people who have enough self confidence and esteem and find it easy to express themselves, or those who want to keep depending on others to make them successful and happy.

New ONLINE Format

You can now work through the course in your own time, from the privacy of your own home, and in easy-to-take steps.  It’s broken into 3 stages, the first being a free ebook, and then two sets of video training and coaching programmes viewed online.  The video courses include worksheets, action plans and questionnaires to enhance your self learning.

Other Formats Available

This course can be held as a  live workshop in a secure, central venue or your own venue.  It can be run as a 4 x 2 hour sessions over 4 weeks, or a one day workshop.  The workshop’s style is both theoretical and practical where you will have time to make notes in your workbook as I share the theory, and then do a practical exercise to help you integrate the learning’s and new ways of being.  You’ll then set yourself some actions to do after each section, helping develop the new you for whom confidence is not a problem.  You’ll have access to me via email too, to ask any questions you have and celebrate your successes.

NOTE: This programme is offered privately for one-on-one tuition, for individuals who prefer a more focused approach with personal attention, and / or who can’t wait for the public group course dates. Contact Telana for rates and dates.

What clients say:
“My eyes have been opened to a whole new world. I feel as though I have more control over myself (thoughts and emotions) and that I am able to handle situations that I find myself in. The greatest part about this (Vibrant Life) programme is that the content allows you to drive into yourself and discover gifts you never knew you had. I feel empowered. I look forward to leading a vibrant life.”

“Definitely a course that every woman should empower herself with. I believe that, we as women are sometimes so hard on ourselves that we end up taking the blame for mistakes of others. This course has taught me so much about myself and relating to other people. It is worth it indeed. The best thing about it is that it applies to every aspect of one’s life and relationships they might have. For me, it has opened the door to a life changing journey I wish I had taken a long time ago.”

What others say:

“I found the small, intimate format much more engaging than other courses I’ve had that have classes of 10 or more participants. It was much easier to ask questions and to relate to both the answers and my fellow participants. I appreciated that we weren’t expected to participate in role-play, but to actually experience the various states and encouraged to reach inside and bring forth positive memories that helped make the practise sessions more real. There’s still work to be done, of course – it’s not a magic bullet – but this is a great grounding course from which to start improving my life. And I have started implementing the Power Pose and the Appreciation state already!” – Sue-Ann Cooper, Digital Marketing Specialist

“I found the seminar extremely enlightening.  It has provided me with a much broader view of how I use filters and interpretations to decode life.  The course provides tools and exercises, which I find very useful to improve my outlook and attitude.  I feel that I have now obtained direction and a way forward in my goal of “finding my own space” in life and living more freely.” – Ralph Whittal, Software Programmer

“Vibrant Life is a brilliant course that provided insight to how my thoughts and behaviours stifled my potential at work and at home. It then provided me with the tools and information to embrace my emotions and with 100% self-esteem, valuing who I am and what I have to offer the world, as well as valuing others. It has helped me to practice courage and confidence in all that I do. Mostly it helped me to think about how I react to stimuli and how to use filters to promote healthy behaviour, as well as be in control of my emotions and not allow others to control how I feel. It is a life-changing course. Thank you Telana.” – Natasha Chetty, Business Development Manager

“The four fundamental principles explained during the course when applied to my life, changed my life significantly. It removed my fears, self-doubt and self sabotaging behaviour. I’m now equipped and empowered to enjoy life’s challenges. Thanks for opening my eyes to a new world Telana!”-Marsha Massyn-Loubser, Financial Manager, Ansy LTD

“This was the most challenging decision in my life, to do something good for myself. I have learnt so much during the month of the Vibrant Life course that I was sad to see it end. During this month I realised that it’s not me, it’s not always my fault or responsibility to come to the rescue, I can’t be responsible for everybody around me. This is definitely my biggest achievement in life! (The course is even better than the description on the website; you get so much more in the course.)” – Natasha Oosthuizen

“I am happy and looking forward to my new journey. Thank you” – Alice, Personal Assistant

“To attend this course could be likened to a light bulb being switched on – it taught me to handle bad situations in a more positive way and remove myself from over analyzing happenings without affecting my self esteem. I trust it will change my outlook even more in the future.” – Zdena Moyle

“Four weeks have passed and I can honestly say that I’m a different person. I’m talking about completing the Vibrant Life workshop with Telana Simpson. What I’ve learned is that this is a constant work in progress, and thanks to the tools we’ve been given, we should be able to deal with whatever life throws at us more effectively.”  Read more of Martha’s view here– Martha van Zyl, Syllable of  Syllable in the City

“Being able to take the concepts learnt in your day to day life, and applying them, and passing on what I’ve learnt and sharing with others is very fulfilling, helping others to help themselves. Thank you Telana, you’ve made me start to think differently about things, it’s a work in progress, but I know I’m going to get there this time.” –  Lorna Kombol, Education Program Specialist, SAP South Africa

“This has changed my view of who I am in relation to other people and the world. It has taught me to be more comfortable when around other people and that they are not “better” than me. We are all equal and I can express and experience life in all its challenges and I need to “be” and I am!” – Anonymous

“I had an aha moment between differentiating being and doing. I have spent most of my life doing i.e. my life has been work work work. Bad day at work and I feel horrible. And it filtered into my life. I basically realised my self esteem is at zero. I need to start from now when I leave to work on my being. Thank you for that!”- Cindy Pillay

“The theory was explained in a way that I could understand and really grasp.” – Liz Allen
