Course Information

Become a Certified Practitioner of NLP and Matrix Therapies.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is the study of successful behaviour. It teaches certain processes to replicate that behaviour in your own life. It can empower your subconscious mind to help you move closer to achieving personal and professional goals. Matrix Therapies® are processes to clear negative emotions and limiting beliefs. 

NLP and Matrix Therapies® together assist you to make profound and lasting change and allow you to fulfil your true potential, and help others achieve their true potential. These modalities give you the skills you need to unlearn negative habits and tackle issues that are preventing you from moving forward.

About Sonya

Who am I?

Hi! I'm Sonya Furlong, the founder of the Centre for Life Therapies.  I am Australia's No, 1 NLP Trainer for Women, empowering them to fulfil their career and relationship dreams faster and easier than they thought possible.

I believe every woman deserves a career that is in alignment with her values, working with people she likes, doing the work she loves, working the hours she wants and being paid what she's worth.  

I also believe women deserve meaningful relationships, where she is loved, respected and the whole of the partnership equals more than the sum of the parts.  

What I am not ok with is women who are being undervalued, bullied, disempowered, struggling with imposter syndrome, putting themselves last, and struggling with relationships.  I'm not ok with women consistently suffering from anxiety, unhappiness, burnout and overwhelm.  

My top 3 values are Love, Wisdom and Success and I base my trainings and coaching on these principles, sharing the skills so every woman can experience more love, more wisdom and more success.  

As I severely depressed teenager I sought out ways to manage my emotions as I was brought up in a culture where no-one was listening - you didn't talk about your problems and you 'soldiered on', putting on a brave face and hiding your pain.  I began meditation and it saved my life.  Fast forward to my 30s, I was now married with 2 children and suffered another bout of depression lasting several years.  Finally it was the life coaches I paid to see that helped me turn my life around.  

Despite successful careers in the film, television and events industries, I was burnt-out, tired, undervalued, full of fear and imposter syndrome.  

I decided to invest in myself, studied and became a life coach and certified trainer of NLP, Matrix Therapies® and Hypnosis.  This was life changing in ways I could not have comprehended.  This has lead me here, the founder of the Centre for Life Therapies and the leader of the Business Unbound Women's Program, a national program for supporting women to make positive transitions in their careers and relationships.  

Contact me for a free 45-minute strategy session where we will unpack your greatest challenge in your life right now and I will give you the steps to solve it using NLP and Matrix Therapies®.


As a business owner who works closely with hundreds of people, I was looking for a way to more quickly get the results I needed to succeed.  After attending a workshop of Sonya's I decided this course in NLP & Matrix Therapies would help me.  Sonya is very knowledgeable and clear.  Over the three weeks I have already used many of the techniques and scripts to help me and they have resulted in great successes.  I intend to practice these more and continue to incorporate them into my business coaching and networking environments. (Wendy Lloyd Curley, Director, BNI Sydney Nth East)

This training has changed my life already. I look at life totally different now, I feel I have skills to help others.  I feel empowered.  Sonya has strong communication techniques and knowledge and she respects her students and their learning styles. Thank you Sonya for helping me see that I can achieve anything. This training is so powerful. (Annette Lawrence, Correctional Services Case Worker)

I don't even know how I would've started opening a healing practice without the tools I've learnt here, they're just so practical. Also, I loved connecting with everyone. It was just beautiful to hear everyone's stories and see everyone have breakthroughs and experience breakthroughs myself. (Rita Tusa, Healer)

The tools of NLP are mind blowing. And it's phenomenal that this has been around for so long, and we're still just walking through life without having these skills that are just really the basic ABCs of what we need to get on and to actually thrive in our lives.  So, I'm really grateful. I studied NLP for my personal growth, and the fact that I'm taking these tools for myself and moving into my life with them is a blessing. (Maria Hantes, Senior Manager, ASX)

NLP has given me a new lease on life! I feel so excited and hopeful about the future, and all it has in store for me. NLP has made me realise I am more whole than I thought I was, it’s helped me heal a lot, it’s given me a sense of calm and I feel more centred, and a sense of renewed purpose. If you are thinking about the course but feeling unsure, just go for it, you are going to get so much out of it, and so glad and relieved that you did it. (Shanley King, Owner, StyleWorthy)

If you are experiencing any sort of life struggle or challenges or anything, then NLP can definitely help. I'm so in love with NLP. It's definitely this abundant world of magical tools, and there is something for everyone in here, and it's always going to do some sort of difference and any difference in this case, especially if you are going through cancer, is a huge milestone achieved. So, I feel extremely fortunate, extremely grateful to have you as a friend and seeing you as a beautiful teacher, everyone falling in love with your style and with your ethics and your patience. (Ege Demirkan, Cancer Empowerment Coach)
