The Certified Lefkoe Method Facilitator Intensive

How to attain mastery by discovering your facilitator blind spots and removing them

Why The Blind Practice Approach Could Be Stunting Your Growth As A Facilitator

Have you ever tried to write a sentence in cursive with your eyes closed?

I have, and it's not pretty.  I can't even stay within the blue lines.  Without seeing where I go off track, it's hard to ... well ... stay on track.

And what if I were to write while blindfolded for a week, a month, a year? I might get used to writing this way, I might even improve a bit.

But I could be writing one letter legibly, and another might need a Rosetta Stone to be deciphered. How would I know? And how could I possibly get better?

To make my handwriting legible, I'd need visual confirmation that each line was on or off track.

And to get better as a facilitator, we need the same sense of confirmation. Someone to say yes, that was a great new way to guide your client. And also someone to say, you can get better results with this small change.

Here are a few examples:

We don't always know when the client dropped several clues to a belief early in the session, which could allow us to help our client more quickly.

We don't always know when the client gave us all we needed for the pattern in the first few minutes.

We don't always know that simple shifts in our language could help the "challenging" client eliminate a belief far more easily.

As you can see, we don't always know when we are off track with a client.

So how do we discover what we need to do to get better?  How do we make the invisible visible?

Presenting "The Certified Lefkoe Method Facilitator" Intensive

The solution to our blind spots is a pair of eyes trained to see what we miss.  Someone who has already made many mistakes, reflected on them, and learned from them.  Someone trained to help you do the same.

Action-Oriented Feedback From Experts

When you get specific feedback, you can make the most important changes.

In the Certified Lefkoe Method Facilitator Intensive, we listen to sessions you've recorded.  We then give you point-by-point feedback on what to improve.  You end up with a plan of action for what to do differently next time.  And when you get better, we notice it in your next session.  You grow week after week.

As you get the feedback, areas of confusion will clear up.  You'll become more confident even with tricky clients because your understanding of the principles will be solid.

“I have never participated in a class or course that sets up its students for success the way this one does.”

I joined the CLMF Program because I knew it was where I was supposed to be. I knew this would be of value to the people I want to serve.

Before I started, my sessions were mostly only the meat of LM (belief removal) and trying to figure out the beliefs without the full Pattern process (skinny broken pieces of bread…and open-faced).

Halfway through, my confidence began to come in because the process was working for the clients who permitted me to work with them. Pattern-finding was starting to come into focus for me. I wasn’t having to work as hard.

Now I’m way more confident as a facilitator. Pattern finding is easier, though there is still lots of room for growth.

Having other students and the varied feedback from them and the instructors were invaluable. Being able to review sessions and offer feedback was very instructional. Learning from their already developed skills improved mine.

Having experienced eyes and ears on me and the sessions made all the difference. Each instructor brings something different to the table, and it’s the combination of each of their talents that supports greater growth and learning.

One experience, in particular, was realizing that some two-part beliefs benefit from the Stimulus Process (SP). The belief may be removed, and if there is still a “reaction” to a portion of the belief, this may be the perfect place to bring in the SP. After doing that in our facilitation class, I had that come up in my client that evening. It couldn’t have been timed more perfectly.

One unusual element was offering feedback on the sessions shared by the other students, which is super effective. It brings in the element of learning through teaching to the process, which creates quicker and stronger progress.

The format is very unique. I have never participated in a class or course that sets up its students for success the way this one does. When I am certified after this process, I will have full confidence in my ability to serve my clients.

The additional learning, such as Random Learning and Insights, brought out juicy observations that participants/instructors observed, whether through the student’s shared sessions or through the weekly facilitation call. It allowed for a deeper discussion vs. just noticing and moving on.

Would I recommend this program to others?

ABSOLUTELY! Anyone who participates WILL walk away well trained and confident in the process. They are not given the information and sent out into the world (unlike University students, for example).

My advice to future participants:

The format of this program is created for optimum growth and learning. It may seem tough at the beginning but stick with it. You will reap the rewards of your decision to follow through with it exactly as it is laid out.

The CLMF Program Is Designed To Do The Following:

  1. Notice when something is slowing down or interfering with a session
  2. See how to move the client ahead effectively and with compassion
  3. Be aware of what you are doing well, so you gain confidence

We use a simple system to achieve the above:

  • Annotated feedback from a Certified Lefkoe Method Facilitator
  • An 11-point checklist
  • You giving feedback to your peers
  • Annotated feedback

    We transcribe your sessions, then we put comments on specific words and phrases you say to show what you could have done better.  This precise feedback gives you confidence that you’ve understood what didn’t work and how to fix it.

  • The 11-point checklist

    The checklist ensures that your feedback is complete every time.  You’ll know precisely what you did well and precisely which areas there are to improve.  Because you can see the target, you can aim for it. There’s no guesswork.

  • Giving feedback

    When you give feedback to your peers, you become better at figuring out how to make tricky sessions work better.  That knowledge spills over into your own work. You notice that you can better navigate the more challenging moments with your clients.

Now I feel confident I can facilitate the LBP with clients and get them results.”

Before the program began, I felt overwhelmed with explaining the process or when clients had issues, I did not yet know how to handle.

Mid-way through, I had my own beliefs eliminated during the webinar, which helped me be more confident when talking about the process and be more calm when listening to clients’ stories.

Before, I did not clearly define patterns, and I did not do all the checking around patterns as rigorously as I do now. Using the feedback, my sessions started to become more structured.

Beatrice was my instructor. She is a very thorough and will make sure you are solid with your process. She will remind you when you stray too far from the script or pick up on things you say that might not work for the client or all clients in general. She also gives alternatives for what you could have done to get a better outcome. She notices what you did well during the session, and that will be reflected in the notes and feedback she gives you which helps make the course rewarding even at times when it’s difficult.

What difference did the group make for me?

Listening to sessions from the other CLMF students gave me access to a larger body of experiences which led me to have insight into how I can tackle issues I wasn’t used to with my own clients. I could see the kinds of issues everyone’s clients had and how each facilitator dealt with those issues, and seeing the outcome was fantastic as it allowed me to build up experience vicariously through them. Giving and receiving feedback to and from fellow students also helped me reflect on my own techniques. The forum was great because when you have some insight, you can share that with someone or ask for clarity on something at almost any time of day.

Now I feel confident I can facilitate the LBP with clients and get them results.

My advice to students thinking about doing this program: Do this course even if you don’t think you are ready. That’s the point. It will make you ready. You probably have more skill already than you think you do, and this course will bring you so much further.

A Tiny Insight Into What You'll Experience:

  • Live demonstrations on advanced clients

    During the intensive, each participant will help a colleague find a pattern and eliminate beliefs during a live call.  It’s relatively easy to find beliefs with new clients. But with seasoned clients, the detective work is much trickier.  You’ll get to improve these tricker skills, giving you confidence that you can help a client find those last beliefs in their way.

  • Discover your strengths as a facilitator

    Only being aware of how you need to improve could lower your confidence and have a poor impact on your sessions. 

    Focusing only on what to fix can lower confidence and have a poor impact on your sessions. But when you know your strengths as a facilitator, you can see that you are not starting from square one.  You have a firm foundation of skills and abilities you’ve already developed.

  • Improvement plans

    Getting feedback without knowing what to do with it often leads to mistakes that just get repeated.  This slows down your progress.  So we discover your areas of growth and help you create plans for improvement which speed up your learning.

As you can see, we've taken quite a bit of time to think through this program.  We ensure that everyone who takes part succeeds as long as they do the work.

However, we'd like to make a few things clear.

This program is not:

  • Just completing a certain quantity of work to get through
  • Busy work that doesn't improve your performance and your clients' lives
  • Fulfilling requirements for the sake of fulfilling requirements

What it is:

A feedback and learning system that ensures you develop into a Lefkoe Facilitator who makes a massive impact on her client's lives.  

You will master the most important aspects of the Lefkoe Method.

  • Pattern-Definition
  • Belief-Discovery
  • Belief-Elimination
  • Stimulus Conditioning
  • The Creator Space (aka "Who am I really?")

And you will know how to do each part even when a client has a hard time completing a step.

By the end, you will be confident you can help just about anyone eliminate the beliefs that limit their lives.

I recommend this program because it’s in-depth, it’s fun, and it’s just what you need if you wanna be a better facilitator!”

Before the CLMF Program, I was less clear about where to start and how to approach the session.  My hardest moment was when I had sessions with a client who was difficult to interrupt because I had beliefs about it.  I got rid of those beliefs and was better able to handle the client.

Partway through, I saw how, when implementing the feedback, the sessions were easier, and I also found some things that I could work on myself to make the work easier.

Now I’m excited about the improvements I’ve made.

In the group, it was awesome to see different ways of facilitating, very inspiring! And also fun to have someone to share the experience with. Really motivating and comforting also.

The forum was a great spot to have all info gathered and a structure of my work and the other members’ work!

Liane, Annabel, and Rodney were the instructors. I loved getting the feedback as different people noticed different things, so it was helpful. They were professional and calm. Specifically, I loved that Liane took extra time with my sessions and provided me with great and transformative feedback.

I recommend this program because it’s in-depth, it’s fun, and it’s just what you need if you wanna be a better facilitator!

Beatrice Aronovici

I feel more confident about the process and about my ability as a facilitator.”

What was your primary reason for joining the CLMF Program? 

I wanted to become a CLMF! And also teach it in Israel.

Describe how you used to approach sessions before this program began. 

– I was more intuitive and did them without really trying to use the pattern finding formula. I used to let clients babble on and on endlessly and had trouble reining them in. I was always stressed about the time and not being able to eliminate a belief.

Describe how things changed about mid-way into the program. 

– I started using the pattern grid more. I became more systematic with the steps. I revisited my script and realized that I changed things with time… I was better able to redirect clients back to the process.

Describe how you feel now, towards the end of this program. 

I feel more confident about the process and about my ability as a facilitator. I can still see my drawbacks, but I feel I made progress and sharpened my skills.

Can you tell us about your experience with the group and the difference it made? 

– the group was extremely important! We were a small group, so there was time to read everyone’s work and learn from it. The support, the discussion, the people themselves were a significant factor in my learning.

Can you tell us why the forum helped? And where it helped? 

– it helped in getting feedback, asking questions, and getting different perspectives, it was like an ongoing conversation I could conduct at my own pace and time.

Can you describe to a newcomer how this program is conducted?

– the program is 8 (maybe 9 in the future) weeks long. You have to submit a new session every weekend, have it transcribed, and then it is the learning focus of the week. During the week, you give and receive feedback according to certain criteria. At the end of every week, there’s a weekly webinar where you further get to practice your skills and facilitate one of your classmates live. This is also powerful learning.

Describe Rodney as a program leader 

– Rodney is the best. He is patient, kind, knowledgeable, and systematic. Rodney knows how to give you feedback that will help you grow and evolve as a facilitator, and he does it in a very positive and uncritical way.

Did you have any personal experience of note?

I had many such experiences. The course really “pushed my buttons” regarding different patterns I had, so it was an amazing growth experience.

Describe some unusual elements of teaching/learning used in this course (and how it helped). 

The element of doing live sessions on the webinar was stressful but powerful at the same time. The element of having a session recorded and others watch it and analyze it and give you feedback – I don’t know where else it is done this way, with such comprehensive feedback.

What is the uniqueness of this program? 

– it is the only program that exists to become a certified Lefkoe Method Facilitator

How did additional learning e.g. “the random learning” help? 

It was enriching because it specified things we learned without intending to.

Why would you recommend this program? 

– if you want to become a professional facilitator of TLM, then you need to do this. You will grow more than you think was possible.

What was your toughest moment? How did you overcome it? 

My toughest moment was at the end when I felt like my chance to improve was gone, and I still saw I was far from where I wanted to be in terms of facilitating. I worked on some limiting beliefs that were causing me to feel really bad about this, so now I feel better. I know that learning and growing are endless.

How has the Lefkoe Institute helped you?

They have changed my life in so many ways! Starting with Natural Confidence and then doing the courses and the certification program.

Details Of The Program

There are three phases to the CLMF Program

Phase 1: Take the Lefkoe Method Training 1, 2, and 3 and do all course work.
Phase 2: Join the CLMF Intensive Program (described on this page)
Phase 3: Retake the courses as an alumnus (This can be done before the intensive, too)

Phase 1 and Phase 3 do not require further explanation as you've already taken the LMT courses to be reading this page.

However, below are more details of the CLMF Intensive (Phase 2)

What Each Week Looks Like During The CLMF Intensive:

The Thursday before the program begins, you turn in a session which gets transcribed.

The next Monday, you post your transcript to the forum. Your instructor gives you detailed feedback by the end of the day. 

On Tuesday, a colleague gives you feedback.
On Wednesday, you give a colleague feedback on their session.

The next week, the day you submit a session will be different but the pattern repeats itself.  You do a session, it is transcribed, you get feedback from an instructor and a colleague.  You listen to a colleague's session and give feedback.  Rinse and repeat for 9 weeks.

And each week, a participant will do a session during a live call and get live feedback.

All work is submitted on the forum, so all participants learn from each other.

Once the Intensive is over, you will submit three testimonials and three case studies.

Answers to Detailed Questions About the CLMF Program

  • q-iconHow much time does the program take?

    I asked the past CLMFs about the time commitment per week and I got very similar answers of from 8-12 hours a week.
  • q-iconHow many sessions do we need to facilitate or turn in throughout the entire course?

    You will turn in 9 sessions.
  • q-iconDo our sessions need to be with people that are new to Lefkoe?

    Yes, we need people new to Lefkoe for your sessions.
  • q-iconWhat else do we need to submit besides sessions?

    You will need to submit 3 written case studies detailing your work with clients over time.
  • q-iconIs there a payment plan for the tuition and if so, what does that look like?

    We can make payment arrangements depending on what you need. We’ve had plans that were split into equal payments over seven months.  Other payment arrangements are also possible.
  • q-iconI have not had any sessions with a CLMF - does that already eliminate me from doing the intensive at this time since it is a question under the prerequisites?

    That does not disqualify you.  However, we’ll want to make sure you’ve had a few sessions with one of the CLMFs if you are to join the program. We just want to ensure that everyone knows what good facilitation is like from the client’s perspective.
  • q-iconWhen will the CLMF Run?

    The Program will run from November 27, 2023 to February 5, 2024.  There will be one week off for Christmas from December 25 to December 29th.
  • q-iconWhen will the live classes will be held?

    The live classes will be held on Wednesdays at 10 am Pacific Time.   They will start on Wednesday, November 30 and end on Wednesday, February 8.  The week we take off we would not meet.
Liane Carmi

“I feel like I’ve improved tremendously. I feel more confident in my skills.”

What was your primary reason for joining the CLMF Program?

I wanted to improve as a facilitator and feel more confident about my skills. Also, I needed the strong connections and friendships created by the need to work together and help each other out.

Describe how you used to approach sessions before this program began

Before the program, I followed the script. I often got stuck and didn’t know where to go next.

Describe how things changed about mid-way into the program

Midway into the program, my personal script started to become more robust, and I was able to handle difficult sessions with more ease. I also started to feel much more confident in my skills and to adjust the focus of my sessions.

Describe how you feel now, towards the end of this program

I feel like I’ve gotten everything I wanted to get. I feel like I’ve improved tremendously. I feel more confident in my skills. And I feel like I now have 3 very good friends who I will help and support – and who will likely help and support me moving forward. The shared experience alone made this course more than worthwhile.

Can you tell us about your experience with the group and the difference it made?

On the technical side of things, each of us had something else we were good at, and we were able to learn those things through the process of reviewing each others’ work.

Having the small group also made me feel very supported and loved throughout the 8 weeks.

Can you tell us why the forum helped? And where it helped?

The forum was where learning happened! We got to share our views and also see other people’s thought processes. And we were able to keep conversations going, whether we had an important question or just wanted to comment on something we noticed.

Can you describe to a newcomer how this program is conducted?

You submit sessions. You get feedback from 4 different people. You incorporate the feedback. You submit another session…and you continue to make small changes on a weekly (or sometimes daily) basis and grow.

Describe Rodney as a program leader

He empowers you and lets you take control of your own growth and learning.

Did you have any personal experience of note?

I had MANY such experiences. Most especially when I saw how my peers handled certain parts of a process or certain client responses. Or when someone did something unexpected…or off-script, and it worked.

Describe some unusual elements of teaching/learning used in this course (and how it helped).

It’s unusual that Rodney never actually showed us anything. Meaning – we were our own teachers, and Rodney simply gave feedback and answered questions. I wonder what direction the course would have taken if Rodney had made himself “the expert.” We probably wouldn’t have had the same levels of growth or creativity in our processes.

What is the uniqueness of this program?

It allows for incredible growth in just 8 weeks.

How did additional learning e.g. “the random learning” help?

It was good to have a space on the forum for random things, or to pull out things that worked for others that might have otherwise gotten lost in the weekly posts.

Why would you recommend this program?

There’s no better way to grow as a facilitator than to get consistent feedback and apply it.

What was your toughest moment? How did you overcome it?

My toughest moments were when I felt like my session (with a client) wasn’t going anywhere because the client was so resistant to my suggestions. I doubted whether they were undergoing any changes. I overcame it by submitting that session for review so that I could get feedback from Rodney and my peers to see how I could improve.

How has the Lefkoe Institute helped you?

The Lefkoe Institute changed my life. It gave me confidence and got rid of my anxiety. And it continues to serve me every single year. I am constantly growing and shedding beliefs, turning my life into one of limitless possibilities.

Liane Carmi

What's Unique About This Program?

Most certification programs are about filling in requirements, many of which don't help you learn.  This course is about helping you become a reflective practitioner -- someone who continuously improves their performance.  You will have the tools to solve any problem you may face in the future as a facilitator.

“I can look at a session I had and know exactly what I could have done differently to get different results.”

What was your primary reason for joining the CLMF Program?

Lefkoe is the most amazing method that I have been given the opportunity to experience and I want to give the gift of Lefkoe to others.

Describe how you used to approach sessions before this program began

By the book from LMT courses, but less skillfully since I had less experience and not a lot of feedback.

Describe how things changed about mid-way into the program

I started seeing more things in session, because on top of feedback addressed to me, I also built up experience by watching colleagues do sessions and noticing what I would have done differently and where they thought of things I wouldn’t have.

Describe how you feel now, towards the end of this program

I feel tired! And more confident in my skills as a facilitator. There is still room for improvement, so it’s actually good that I am retaking the LMT courses, that will give me the practice time needed to implement all the feedback and build up the mileage.

Can you tell us about your experience with the group and the difference it made?

The group was an amazing resource, for feedback, support and because watching other people work lets you borrow from their great finds and adapt your style little by little.

Can you tell us why the forum helped? And where it helped?

It was a great way to keep in touch at our own pace.

Can you describe to a newcomer how this program is conducted? (methodology)

The program uses the drip method, whereby you post some feedback/work each day. Here, it is not as gradual as the LMT courses, since you post sessions once a week, but you can take your time to give feedback, since you only review one session a day for each person, so you don’t have to power through three hours of sessions to give all the feedback at once if you don’t feel like it (but you can if you want).

Describe Rodney as a program leader

Rodney is very knowledgeable and always happy to help. He is also open to learning new things, which, in my opinion, makes him all the more trustworthy as a professional.

Did you have any personal experience of note?

Having sessions regularly with a clear goal in mind to enhance my learning has been instrumental in my progress. Before, I just did sessions for fun with friends and classmates and just addressed whatever came up that week, with no clear pattern definition. Now, because of the framework and feedback I was given, my work is a lot more targeted and laser-focused. It makes it easier to see the client’s progress.

Describe some unusual elements of teaching/learning used in this course (and how it helped).

At this point in time, for this specific CLMF course, it feels like a professional training other professionals in their field, learning by doing, reviewing, and doing some more with the feedback in mind.

What is the uniqueness of this program?

Learning by doing, with constant feedback from different people, teachers, and learners. As a learner having to give feedback, I gained more clarity on what is expected, and that has given me an idea of how I am doing in my own performance as well, so I am not leaving it to chance, I can look at a session I had and know exactly what I could have done differently to get different results.

How did additional learning e.g. “the random learning” help?

It is a good section to post random questions or tidbits you learned and want to share with the group as well as more informal discussions.

Why would you recommend this program?

The Lefkoe Method is the best method around. It is actually a shame that more mental health professionals don’t have this tool in their arsenal.

What was your toughest moment? How did you overcome it?

I had a really challenging first session where I felt like we were going nowhere with the client. I watched the recording again and came up with some ideas. Then I posted it to the forum and got feedback from classmates. That was good because it gave me an angle for a potential future client similar to that one.

How has the Lefkoe Institute helped you? (A short answer is fine, here).

The Lefkoe Institute has helped me in so many ways I would need to book a conference hall for three hours to explain the whole story. Long story short, they helped me rebuild my self-esteem, fix my relationship with my mother, and completely get rid of emotional triggers and intrusive thoughts, as well as fears about motherhood. I am happy today and have become a mother because of all the help that the Lefkoe Institute has given me over the years.

Anything you’d like to add?

From the bottom of my heart, thank you, I am so grateful I came across this method and the wonderful Lefkoe team!

“You are completely set up for success with a tried-and-true, multi-pronged, on-the-playing-field approach.”

  1. What was your primary reason for joining the CLMF Program?

Clients bring their lives to us with trust and I wanted to have done the necessary work to give them my best. While I had successfully completed the full set of Lefkoe courses as an alumni and facilitated many sessions before, I wanted to be confident and proficient as a facilitator, understand and execute the Lefkoe processes at a nuanced and gut level so that I could expertly serve a variety of clients with varied issues with ease.

  1. Describe how you used to approach sessions before this program began

I did follow the Pattern/Belief Discovery processes however, I didn’t understand them at a gut level, nor did I apply them fully or consistently. Also, I tended to brainstorm potential beliefs or try to identify them via analysis or digging via questions. I worked hard in sessions. I tended to lean towards some beliefs (Self, SSB) more than others, and while having tried out all Lefkoe processes on myself and others, I wasn’t always clear when to use some. I sometimes got lost in a session and didn’t know what path to take. I successfully helped clients, but my sessions often went over 1 hour

  1. Describe how things changed about mid-way into the program

Initially, I was thrown off because of all the pieces I had to include in the session within 1 hour; it seemed nigh on impossible. However, the instructors’ empowering, targeted and specific feedback pointed out :

  • my strengths, clues I missed,
  • how connecting patterns, beliefs, and sources would have helped me
  • how to get unstuck,
  • how to spot beliefs earlier,
  • personalized tips to shorten my time
  • potential personal blocks causing me facilitation issues.

Applying this guidance, I began to ensure that I defined the patterns well, connected beliefs to them, and validated belief sources. My facilitation became smoother, more focused, and more efficient; I became more confident, connected better to clients, and started doing deeper work. I completed sessions closer to one hour

  1. Describe how you feel now, towards the end of this program

  • I understand the Lefkoe processes, their intention, and nuances at a deeper level
  • I am confident in facilitating a variety of clients with different issues, knowing I have the tools, skills, and practical experience to help them.
  • I trust my gut instincts during a session and have even begun to try some new things
  • I am now able to pivot if I get stuck and think of a better path
  • I am consistently able to shift deep patterns with my clients and receive very positive feedback. I feel so grateful for having created concrete shifts for real clients while still in training.
  • Instead of being anxious, I now love and have fun working with clients
  • Clients I worked with prior to CLMF have commented on my increased confidence and increased skills.

  1. How would you describe to a newcomer how this course is taught? (methodology)?

  • On a Weekly basis, you:

    • Submit recorded sessions with real clients
    • Get specific 11-point feedback for improvement from skilled and experienced Instructors
    • Submit 11-point feedback to a peer to enable your own learning by teaching
    • Take turns to facilitate one of your peers live with follow-on feedback by Rodney and the instructors. Read feedback and ask questions
    • Reflect on your learnings and identify a focus for the upcoming week

  • You Apply the feedback in your next session and watch yourself improve

  1. Who were your instructors? Describe them.

  • My instructors were Liane Carmi and Beatrice Aronovici, both skilled, experienced, and certified CLMF facilitators, both committed and passionate about Lefkoe, teaching, and empowering people to flourish.
  • Liane has a knack for finding and pointing out the gold in you. She is fun and loving but directly tells you exactly what you need to hear to improve and then gives you specifics on how to go about it. She is open to new ideas and viewpoints, makes you think, and answers your questions thoughtfully.
  • With Beatrice, you get the gift of a professional Psychologist and Lefkoe facilitator rolled in one. She is kind and lovingly provides thorough and targeted feedback, and she also picks up on human subtleties others would miss. Instead of being directive, she makes you think by offering it as something to investigate. If she senses that you may have a block affecting your facilitation, she doesn’t hesitate to point it out for consideration. If she says something, you would be wise to pay attention.
  • They are both unwavering in their support and are more on your side than you probably are.
  • Rodney is the calm, humble, smiling master trainer who knows Lefkoe inside-out and has a knack for giving you exactly what you need to get unstuck. He is open to new ideas but won’t compromise on what he thinks is best for students.

  1. Did you have any personal experience that stood out?

  • I resisted the one-hour session time limit, even after Liane said she wouldn’t accept long sessions. Then Karma kicked in. One client who got a lot of shifts praised me highly but added that I keep the session to max an hour as they could be draining because they go so deep. She was perfectly fine with doing only discovery in a session and then clearing [a belief] in the next. Not all clients want to rush through as many beliefs as possible – they just want concrete shifts. Some clients like longer sessions, and some don’t. Bottom line – The client is King!
  • After an explanation from Rodney, I realized the power of If-then beliefs, how to do targeted AIs, and how similar they are to the Stimulus-Emotion process. Before this, I rarely looked for if-then beliefs
  • After I experimented for myself, I learnt the power of having the client identify and connect to Body sensations and how useful this is in grounding the client and in getting directly to source events and belief sources. Even though this is not in the formal Lefkoe process, Liane and Beatrice noticed it and encouraged me to use it if it helped the client. I trust my gut so much more as a result.

  1. What is the uniqueness of this program?

  • It is ten weeks long, so you get a concentrated, intense, longer-term focused environment vs. a few days. This allows training to sink in, for you to try suggestions, and allow questions and new challenges to arise.
  • It is practical and real vs theoretical – Working with real-world clients who had not used Lefkoe and getting feedback from the live or recorded sessions made it real and hands-on.
  • Giving the 11-point feedback to my peers required me to think and learn while also benefiting from my peers’ strengths

  1. Why would you recommend this program?

  • You are completely set up for success with a tried-and-true, multi-pronged, on-the-playing-field approach.
  • If you are planning to use Lefkoe as a facilitator, don’t leave home without it! It will be the best time and money you spend. What you learn here will undoubtedly increase your skills.
  • This program and Lefkoe have been one of the three most engaging, invigorating, and rewarding things I have ever done, and it contributes to others in a profound way. It has helped me re-discover my passion for learning and making a difference.
  • I have learnt many modalities and training – This one sticks.

  1. What was your toughest moment? How did you overcome it?

  • When my second session went sideways, I got a shift for my client but was uncomfortable and unsure during the whole session. I immediately set up a session with Liane where she let me have my freak-out, cleared a blocking belief, and gave me some incisive coaching and encouragement.
  • She also reviewed this extra session, which I did but did not submit, and pointed out what I had done well, that I missed that the client had a drink in their hand, how to handle it in the future, and how elements of the 11-point checklist would have helped me.
  • This was a turning point for me. I took on the course with renewed vigour after that.

  1. How has the Lefkoe Institute helped you? (A short answer is fine here).

  • I have significantly grown as a person, and I have tools that will serve me lifelong and through me, whomever I touch. I am more grounded and peaceful, comfortable in my skin, like and respect myself, and have found my passion.
  • I offer my deep gratitude to Morty Lefkoe for creating this exceptional, powerful, and practical modality and to Shelly Lefkoe and Rodney Daut for continuing his legacy and making it accessible
