Authentic Self Empowerment™

Authentic Self Empowerment™ (ASE) is a simple, practical and dynamic set of skills that anyone can learn and use to overcome challenging situations, whether they are manifestations on the physical, mental, emotional or spiritual level.


When you recognise that you need not be limited in any way, you will cease to be limited. You will begin to open to the infinite, and you will be able to act creatively and resourcefully in every area of your life.

ASE provides Coaches & Therapists with a holistic approach to healing the root of most mental/emotional challenges by focussing on both generative transformation and remedial change. ASE facilitates a context for personal growth that heals your past, empowers you in the present and enables you to create a compelling future.

ASE is a powerful way to change the unconscious patterns that are responsible for unwanted behaviours. It enables you to re-program your unconscious mind, so that you can be more resourceful in any area of life.

This profound approach to Self empowerment, personal development and deep healing was developed by Jevon Dängeli after his extensive research in the fields of NLP, HNLP, Hypnotherapy, as well as Mindfulness practices and Transpersonal Psychology.


When you change your internal map of reality, you change your external experience of reality too. And when you change your experience of reality, the world changes. That’s how valuable you are!

How can ASE help me?

The ASE approach is effective in helping individuals easily connect with their inner wisdom/greater intelligence to deal more resourcefully with any type of dis-ease, stress, depression, unwanted mental and emotional states, addiction, trauma, phobia, relationship problems, abuse and physical sickness. ASE can be used to help you find direction, clarify goals, connect with your core values, find your life’s purpose and be motivated.

ASE enables you to overcome negative emotions and mind sets that prevent your success and happiness. A negative emotion is an emotion that is toxic to the body and interferes with its balance and harmonious functioning. Fear, anxiety, anger, bearing a grudge, sadness, hatred, jealousy and envy all disrupt the energy flow through your body, affect the heart, the immune system, digestion, production of hormones, and so on.

How can ASE help with such a wide range of issues?

This approach is useful in helping most people deal with any of life’s challenges because it is applied at the very core, or root of your presenting issue. If required, ASE addresses the original emotional event(s) that has lead to your problem or challenge.

Through gentle guided processes using visualization and kinaesthetic awareness your issue is healed and transformed as its occurrence takes on a new meaning in your life. You become empowered as the blockages to the flow of energy in your body and mind naturally disappear. Necessary resources and relevant learnings are accessed metaphorically to change any limiting perspectives and beliefs. Then new options, responses and alternative behaviours are introduced and appropriately integrated.

“In oneself lies the whole world, and if you know how to look and learn, then the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either that key or the door to open, except yourself”. – Krishnamurti

Since the way in which people define their reality is based on their perceptions and defined metaphorically through language, insight and change of any internal and subjective representation will have a direct result in that person’s external and objective experience. In fact, changes to imaginative representations have been correlated with changes in heart rate, galvanic skin response, blood pressure, and a host of other chemical and neurophysiological effects. For this reason, changes in metaphoric representation effects cognition, which in turn generates new thoughts, feelings and behaviour.

Just as any problem is created through the conditioned perceptual filters of the mind, so too can the solution be found by means of new expanded and resourceful perceptions being brought into awareness. Transformation and healing occurs when the boundaries which contained the problem are transcended and new learnings, choices and solutions are actualised.


ASE – Transcending Space and Time

Mental and/or emotional problems, including stress, anxiety, depression, anger, sadness or loneliness can only exist to the extent that we hold these conditions within our perceptual parameters of space and time.

As Dr Tim Brunson (Hypnotherapist) puts it: “Just about all mental pathologies involve some level of dysfunctional space/time perceptual orientation. This is especially true of traumas, which include an overly intense past orientation, and fears, phobias, and anxieties, which normally primarily involve an excessive future orientation. Space/time perceptions are implicated even with bad habits, personality disorders, and delusions, which often are associated with bipolar and schizophrenia. Furthermore, these concepts also come to play when coaching a person for performance improvement.”

ASE methods utilise how we subjectively code space and time in our perceptual awareness, so as to facilitate healing in the past, groudedness in the present and positive motivation about the future.

ASE methods enable you to update limiting perceptions with more truthful metaphors that empower you and support natural healing processes. Once the subjective boundaries of space and time are transcended you gain access to your inner resources that are normally hidden behind such barriers.

A sense of freedom, inner peace, joy and aliveness will flow with greater ease into your life when perceived such barriers are removed. The basic ASE process can include the discovery of your life’s greater purpose and enable you to harness your own suitable, personal and practical way of implementing this.

Many therapists and coaches believe that NLP and Hypnotherapy are the most effective ways of facilitating rapid and sustainable healing and personal growth. Well, they may be right, and now the best of NLP and Hypnotherapy has been combined with approaches from Mindfulness and Transpersonal Psychology to create the ASE methodology.

Overcoming a drug addiction in 2 hours:

Feedback from a mother, 2 months after her 20 year old son’s Authentic Self Empowerment session: 
“My son says that he NEVER even thinks about drugs any more.  He once had a brief thought and the resources you gave him immediately kicked in, and that was the last of it.  He is doing very well. He started to work last week and is taking major leaps now.  You have touched me and my family in so many ways – thank you.”
More feedback another 6 months later:
“My son is still doing great – no sign of wanting or needing any drugs. He is shining like a CLUSTER OF STARS!”
