I know you are about to start a New NLP Course and I wish so much I could join it again!
I would like to wish you and your new group a fantastic journey, which I am sure everyone will have because I know very well, with my whole heart and soul, that your Program is truly a life changing experience with an incredible depth, wisdom and understanding of human nature and people, what makes them who they are and how they can live a happier, more fulfilled and colorful life.
I loved every moment in your Program, it was such an honor and pleasure to be part of the NLP Practitioners’ group we had in 2014 and enjoy a warm stimulating and always welcoming atmosphere of your House.
Bon Voyage, Sedrick, to you and your new group!
Lots of love and hugs from Ukraine!
With appreciation for your passion for NLP,
For many hours of great learning, powerful transformations and deep insights,
And for your spiritual and fun approach to help people reach their top potential and become who they truly are. Beautiful and Authentic.
It is with great pleasure that I commend and recommend Sedrick Theodosiou’s work.
Sedrick recently completed a Leadership Excellence Profile for a senior executive client on Shine’s
Despite a very broad context, Sedrick managed to create a space in which the client could access
and reflect upon very specific key factors supporting his success during a series of interviews.
Sedrick builds rapport and trust very quickly and treats the process with confidentiality and respect.
The note below is a verbatim extract from feedback provided by the client:
‘Thank you for my Personal Leadership Excellence Profile. The outcome is extremely valuable and
will be invaluable to me as I think about what has worked well for me so far, but also as I look for
the attributes needed in my role and specifically potential successors. The process was also really
enjoyable. It’s a rare and special privilege to be guided to introspect in this way. You have helped
raise my self-awareness and I will continue to process these insights and hopefully amplify the
positives. Your process is both easy and enjoyable but also effective.’
I did the NLP practitioners course with Sedrick mainly with the aim to learn to help others. Little did I know that I was also in desperate need of some help myself.
I had been exposed to a traumatic situation where a close family member had tragically taken his life and left quite a mess to clean up. There are only some companies that do this sort of cleaning and they weren’t able to help. That left me with no option but to clean up this gory mess myself.
This horrific experience resulted in me needing and resorting to a series of trauma counselling. I did not enjoy these counsellors’ methods and thought I would just see it through. They were supposed to be the experts so there must be a reason for their approach. I waited for that “aha” moment.
I wish I hadn’t, It never came.
I was worse off than when I started the trauma counselling.
So I decided to tackle this issue on my own. It worked to a degree, I just could never speak about it without crying, so I just never spoke about it - good plan! Until Sedrick’s NLP course.
The traumatic event came up without me intending it to. So we did a few processes to help me figure through this and reconfigure it differently in my mind. Sedrick specifically helped with this one.
For those who don’t understand the tools used in NLP, we basically managed to remove the rubbish unintentionally installed into my trauma by the previous counsellor (no joke, this is possible), wrap the whole situation up in a beautiful little box, with a bow and keep it in a cherished place where my family member would have wanted it to be, thus leaving his memory clean, untainted and oh so loved. This rewiring of the neurology, now processes the previously traumatic event in a new, positive and resourceful manner.
The mind is a spectacular thing! Unbelievably powerful. So much so that it can create an entirely new subjective reality for you. Learning some tools to make that reality positive and useful is the best gift you can give yourself.
I cannot recommend Sedrick’s NLP course strongly enough for anybody who wants to gain these tools and thus control of their lives.
Thank you Sedrick Theodosiou and Inspiritū-NLP.
(real name has been altered to preserve confidentiality )
Without being in any form melodramatic or over the top you literally have given me the fantastic fruitful life and life tools I have enjoyed.
You are part of literally saving many people’s lives.
There is a published book out that I may share with you at some point where I am mentioned in many parts as literally saving lives. I am thankful for all I can do and have done and the experiences (though many nasty tough ones) I have had. I was a kid going nowhere with little to no education you had such a massive influence and profound impact on my life.
Congratulations on working so hard to becoming a therapist, no great surprise to me it gave me a happy smile and I said to myself that absolutely fits the man i knew; a real-life coach, mentor, solid shoulder to lean on I am way happy for you.
I am truly grateful that I managed to get in touch with you after many years of trying to find you. Thank you for reaching out and responding to what must have been a strange “blast from the past”.
I am sorry we never got to meet this last time I was in SA, but absolutely we can make a plan for next time with a little more planning ahead of time. However I am really happy you went to Cyprus, beautiful place, I lived in Nicosia for eight months in 2004/5 when the United Nations was withdrawn from Iraq.
I really have for a long time felt the need to say thank you and give my respect and honour for all you put into my life.
Thank you is not much but it is all I can say. If you remember I left home at 16 and lived in the back of an old lady’s house in what was not much more than a garage. Perhaps you remember the dump as you took me home on many a cold winter night so that I would not have to walk the what was about 2km home late at night. You taught me to get the job done right and properly, it’s something I have always kept in mind as a manager in my life don’t bash the person bash the slackness or BS job being done. I learned to have an absolute ardent focus on the job at hand no matter how bad the bedlam and crazy the situation gets, just focus, focus on what needs to be done. These lessons are what has made me one of the few sought after folks in high stress, high danger emergencies. I can focus and not get side-tracked on non-issues, or fall apart with emotion, or sweat the small stuff as they say. God knows I have been through five bombed buildings, more shootings and compound attacks than one can imagine. Sadly I have packed more body bags of colleagues than I want to remember. However stay focused on the job at hand get it done and get it done right with passion and commitment, which I know I learned under your hands.
The other life trait and I would say personality change you gave me is to laugh, I remember you Sedrick, the greater the stress got the greater the fun was and that too has stayed with me. No matter how dismal things get I laugh, joke and make everyone around me smile and enjoy what we are doing keeping everyone at ease in high tension situations, has saved many lives. Living in a tent or a container in places like Somalia, Afghanistan or Iraq can absolutely destroy any team’s mental stability and desire to carry on, but the never-ending laugh and fun that Ray has put out has kept many people sane and “normal” whatever that is. It’s so bad that when I am not in the office I get e-mails asking when I will be back because “it’s so quiet here without you”.
Thank you for taking the chance and trusting me, woow that came as a huge surprise to me back then and it’s the first time anyone in my life had seen any inkling of leadership potential. The trust you gave me then I could only imagine equating now as being made a president. Thank you for that trust and the support and believing in me even when I did not. You changed my life and gave me hope even when I didn’t know that was what was needed. To serve you with honesty and integrity because of the trust you gave me has remained with me to always. I work my butt off with great honour to whoever has employed me.
There is much more I could say but all in all the years under your tutelage and more importantly in your presence and learning from your very personality has had the greatest of all influences on my life.
Life has thrown many a strange curveball, who would have thought I would end up living in the USA as a citizen, with an amazing wife and a now 17-year-old son. Travelled the world (although mostly the grim spots). Unfortunately, there never seems to be a humanitarian aid emergency in the Bahamas or Bali –if you could work on that I would greatly appreciate it.
I am greatly looking forward to meeting up with you in the near future.

Dear Sedrick & Cilette
Thank you for you for my Personal Leadership Excellence Model.
The outcome is extremely valuable and will be invaluable to me as I think about what has worked well for me so far, but also as I look for the attributes needed in my role and specifically potential successors.
The process was also really enjoyable. It’s a rare and special privilege to be guided to introspect in this way. You have helped raise my self-awareness and I will continue to process these insights and hopefully amplify the positives. Your process is both easy and enjoyable but also effective.
Thank you again
I completed the NLP practitioner’s course with Sedrick in 2005.
We were quite a big group and, as a result, were lucky to be exposed to lots of different styles during our practice sessions. Even though we were all a little clumsy with the application of the NLP processes, practices were very powerful in that we were working with real issues in each other’s lives.
One such issue I brought to a practice session was my extreme dislike for taxi drivers and their disregard for other road users. I have a strong fairness and justice value and their antics used to literally infuriate me. I would shout, scream and hoot at them and by the time I got to work every morning I was in a rotten mood and quite frankly, I was setting myself up for a tragic altercation with one of them.
I don’t even remember who did the NLP process or which one was used, but I remember that what I wanted instead of anger and frustration was to be able to laugh off taxi drivers’ antics and even admire their chutzpah.
To this day, some 12 years later, I am unable to get riled up and can’t help but shrug and laugh when I see a taxi driver pulling off a crazy move in traffic – how is that for the lasting effects of NLP!
2005 was also the year I got married. We decided to get married on a friend’s farm, which was quite nerve wrecking, as there was a lot of potential for things to go wrong, like having no water or power. It doesn’t help that I am a perfectionist by nature and like to be in control. I had heard friends who had married before us say that their wedding day had passed so quickly and that they regretted not just relaxing and being in the moment more. I was determined I would not let my controlling nature detract from our enjoyment of the day. One NLP process later and I was the calmest, most relaxed bride.
I remember sitting in the car with my Dad on the way to the ceremony – he was sweating buckets and I was hanging out the window waving, talking and laughing with passing motorists. We had an absolutely fabulous wedding and partied to the cows came home (literally) and to be honest, if anything had gone wrong, I wouldn’t have known about it, I was too busy drinking in every second of the experience!
I have reconnected with Sedrick twice over the years the first time when he helped an acquaintance of mine who had very serious depression issues which resulted in several drastic situations with a potential to lead to very serious consequences and where no positive resolution could be found despite the various Professional help disciplines we turned to; all to no avail.
In what took only a few months time my friend was back on their feet and years later until to present day doing even better from year to year.
Fast pace from 2005 to 2017 (February - March).
My eldest daughter had a particular behavioral characteristic ever since she first walked in that she had never walked using the whole foot but instead would walk on her toes only.
This aggravated the original issue by causing the tendons that kept the foot from flattening to shorten even more. Visits to a variety of disciplines did nothing to resolve this issue. It was with the latest visit to an orthopedic surgeon who advised surgery with remedial leg braces that I once again remembered the positive outcomes of previous treatments with Sedrick and with the intention of avoiding such harsh surgical measures I I turned to him once more.
Two months later my daughter now walks using the whole surface of her feet in a flowing movement with only the rare moment where even though she might go up on her toes she will self-regulate back to normal.
I am absolutely thrilled with the outcome and convinced even more than ever at the almost miraculous power of these treatments.
Just to let you know that from your workshop end of last year (December 2014) there has been quite a turn-around in our offices since the beginning of 2015.
It’s really great to see how the team spirit has improved; everyone now seems to be pulling in the same direction.
When talking to the staff here it is apparent that whereas last year most hated coming to work, this year everyone is rather enjoying the office.
At the same time that the vibe in the office has changed, we have also become extremely busy and that is also motivating everyone to work faster and better.
Overall Arrow is performing much better as far as I can tell. Which can only be good for the company.
Trust this is what you wanted from me.
Vodacom contracted Sedrick C Theodosiou through DGT Training's in 2012 / 2013 to design and deliver a specialised course for employees working in a highly strategic and complex multi-year technology and business transformation program. The course was delivered over 10 / 12 months with the main goal of enabling team members to deal with complexities and strain the program would impose on them. Some of the main topics included self-discovery, influence, self and conflict management. The journey created by Sedrick provided immense value to the team and it allowed individuals to benefit and grow not only in their professional context but also in the their personal lives. The benefits have been sustainable which rewards we are still reaping 2 years from the commencement of the program. I would recommend Sedrick to any organisation looking for positive intervention into any into any complex environment, I would further recommend him as a facilitator for any process needed to empower people (group of private) and to help them to optimise their input.
I met Sedrick Theodosiou a few years back and with that 'chance' encounter, gained a dear lifelong friend, mentor, colleague and companion on the path of life.
Sedrick has had a life changing positive influence in my life and is an invaluable trusted go-to place when nothing and everything makes sense. By nature I explore many personal development paths partly for self interest and for my training business and always each is assessed according to the founding principles I learned and can trust in Sedrick's Inspiritu program.
One of my biggest take aways in that time was realising how the words we use in our internal world and with each other, have the ability to change our very DNA. If you are want greater awareness of the Magic you have in your very own being then I would encourage you to act now and enroll on the upcoming 2017 program with Sedrick Theodosiou. For those who have sent it all and done it before - there is so much in this class that you could still stretch into. Sedrick has added so much exciting and relevant content from the field of Neuroscience and what that means to us as conscious human beings. This program is hugely content rich as well as experiential - a major key to transformation.
Only the brave willingly change their life!! I wonder if you are one of those? And if you are, just know you will be in the most expert hands you could ever find in this field of personal mastery.
Hi Sedrick Theodosiou thanks so much for the invite unfortunately I am not available to attend. however I cannot express enough gratitude to you and the wonderful program the gift that you gave me lives on daily and to the people that will be attending I can only say it was a life altering experience for me. Much love xx
If we've spent any time together you know how highly I recommend theNLP training by Sedrick.
If you are interested, get in contact with him or me.
In 2009 I did a course that changed my life forever. I started out thinking I would come away with some new tools for my coping tool box. What I left with was the understanding of how experiential structures work and are put together, and how I had been putting them together randomly in the past, and how I could now put them together with intention to best achieve my higher outcome.
Sedrick's course in NLP will be starting soon, 28th February 2015. I wish you all, that are on this course with Sedrick Theodosiou as beautiful a transformation as I experienced and still experiencing.
If you are thinking about doing an NLP course, and even if you are not, this is the course for you.
Since doing NLP with Sedrick in 2014, so much has changed for me, from the way I am able to connect better with those around me by using rapport, to the conscious use of better language every day.
I'm so grateful that I chose Inspiritu'sNLP course by Sedrick Theodosiou. It is the most thorough and life changing course available in South Africa.
Me in 2003: "Sedrick, why would I spend the money on doing the course, rather than spending the same amount on personal sessions with you?"
Sedrick Theodosiou: "Why would I give you a fish, if I can teach you how to fish?"
And that was the day my life changed forever (for the better, of course). During the last twelve years I have occasionally fallen back on old patterns, although the tools and skills gained through the Inspiritu NLP Practitioners have had a positive impact on every aspect of my life.
Just do it! You'll never look back...
I have studied NLP with Sedrick for the past 7 months. Years ago, when I first wanted to learn more about NLP, I was advised by a wise friend that I should not study NLP with any other than Sedrick.
It has taken 12 years to create the space in my work and personal life, so that I could join the class of 2013. I am eternally grateful that I took that advice. The NLP course has been enriching in every possible aspect. Sedrick has the ability to impart knowledge without ‘teaching’, to facilitate learning so that it is exciting, fun, meaningful and becomes part of the marrow of your bone. The course has been my most beneficial experiential learning experience; the growth personally and how this might be used in an ethical business sense has been invaluable and is unparalleled in my opinion. Thank you Sedrick, I so wish that more corporates took the time to empower their management and staff with your teachings.
I decided to study NLP for personal enrichment and to be able to assist clients more effectively and objectively in writing medico legal reports. I was advised by a colleague not to waste my time and money studying with anyone other than Sedrick Theodosiou. This has proved to be invaluable advice. Sedrick has an informal and positive engaging method of teaching NLP. The material becomes ingrained and part and parcel of positive daily functioning. The training has enriched and transformed my life. I see it as a privilege to be studying NLP with this master.

If you would like to experience the acoustics in the freedom of being a self-master and see and embrace pervasive positive change, you will love and enjoy Sedrick Theodosiou's course enrolling early 2017. Check it out onhttp://www.inspiritu.co.za/ Personally, this course was the best development ever on an individual and a professional level.
