Warm Welcome! 

from Master Coach Rebecca Cooley

Hello Lovely Person! 

I am so excited that you have taken this amazing first step to learn more about how my private coaching program can offer you the support and strategies you are looking for!

It is my best guess that you're here because you've tried various other solutions and haven't quite found the solution you seek. My best guess is that you desire a more whole person approach to your goals with help moving through mindset blocks, and a custom solution with personalized support to help you reach your targeted goals. A Program customized just for you.  I get it! I've been there! And I'm here for you! It is my absolute joy in life to partner with people like you! People who are committed to their growth and transformation! 

Wishing you much peace and joy, 



Have you ever felt anxious about pursuing your dreams? 

Have you stayed in a job that is soul-crushing for far too long? 

Are you nervous about the next steps in your career path because you don't know what to do?

Did the experience of "staying comfortable but unhappy" in your job ever override your desire to break free and find your joy? 

Were you ever terrified of telling people in your life what you really want to do?

Do you experience fear of taking the leap of faith in yourself?

Have you kept yourself small because you worried what other people would think of you? 

Were you certain that everyone in the room was going to notice how awkward you felt inside or that you were a phony? 

Have you ever wished that you had a different body, a different personality, a different life? 

Did you ever want the mental chatter to just stop? 

Have you engaged in negative self-talk and beat yourself up?

Have you experienced that emptiness that feels alone and endless? 

Do you know the feeling of not knowing what you want to do with your life and feel disconnected from your purpose? 

Have you felt so low about yourself that you could not connect with yourself or spend time with yourself? 

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you're not alone. I can answer yes to every single question at one point in my life.

My feelings of debilitating anxiety and feelings of discomfort in my emotions and body began such a long time ago. I remember as a small child feeling incredibly self-conscious. At school, I felt awkward and out of place among my peers. In college, my friendships were few and shallow because I was always concerned about what other people thought of me. I was consumed with the thought of messing up and being judged. My thoughts and beliefs kept me isolated and alone and unable to connect deeply.

The anxiety, loneliness, and empty feeling led me from a very young age on a quest to find answers. It began with a quest as a 13 year old to "find happiness". I saw my peers as happy and carefree and I wanted that! 

My journey at that young age began with attending an evening support group at a church. I was mostly surrounded  by adults. We learned yoga, emotional regulation techniques, and meditation. The focus was on peace. I was grateful to find  some relief but continued to suffer.

I kept searching and my journey took me to self-help, psychology, philosophy... Yes I was the 15 year old at the bookstore in the psychology section reading and reading everything I could get my hands on. Anything that would help me find the answer to "how to be happy".

Counseling was also part of my experience and I tried everything from individual to group therapy to classes. I tried various spiritual traditions. At one point I counted....over the course of my life I had taken hundreds of classes and received thousands of hours of training in pursuit of my answer. I took one 8-week class over and over for years. I went across the world to meditation retreat after meditation retreat, spending upwards of ten days in silent meditation. For decades, I spent most of my days in pursuit. Striving for answers. Seeking. 

Then I began to live what I was learning. To Stop Thinking about it and Truly Practice It. Then it began to click. All of it. 

So have I found "the answer" to eternal happiness? 

Not at all. 

BUT, I no longer feel the same anxiety I once did. 

I have made peace with that empty feeling inside. 

I feel a great deal of compassion for those parts of me that hurt. 

I have come to know myself very well. 

I honor myself as a daily practice.

I can delight in spending time with myself and connecting with myself now. 

I feel comfortable in my own skin and am so grateful to my body and connect regularly with it's wisdom instead of fighting it.

I feel solid in me. 

I know who I am and know there is no one like me. 

I face my fears as a daily practice. 

I feel deeply connected to others. 

I feel proud of who I am and this confidence shines. 

I have come to trust myself. 

I trust my inner voice. 

I know I can handle it. Whatever "it" is.

I offer compassion to myself and practice radical self-acceptance. 

I extend this compassion to others. 

I have stopped judging myself. 

I challenge false beliefs. 

I can distinguish truth from conditioning and programming that I had carried with me all my life. 

I can easily access total quietude and relief from the mental chatter. 

I love connecting with people in any way, through one on one conversation or teaching large classes. 

I know my purpose and am grateful every day for my life.

I can now say I am grateful for all of the circumstances in my life that prompted me to seek, to learn, to practice, and most importantly to share.

I discovered that it wasn't about how much I learned or how much I practiced...

Although my journey involves a lot of both...

I discovered that it was about turning inward and discovering that the root of all my issues was internal. 

And cultivating the courage to look deeply and address the root rather than the symptom.

And it is my honor to join you on your journey as you too, gently and at your own pace, discover your own roots.

It is my honor to walk with you and share what I have learned and to offer help if you have struggle as I struggled. I don't want you to suffer if there are things I can do to help. 

I offer help by learning about you, understanding your struggles, and synthesizing~ my lifetime of learning and practicing~ into easy to use personalized methods just for you.

It is my heart's desire to offer the relief I can and help you find your own peace and joy. 

I truly feel we are in this together. 

I want this for you. 

If I can do it, you can do it.

The results are in! Catalyst Partners share their individual results from partnering with Rebecca: 


































My focus is on helping people find solutions and offer strategies to intrinsic goals as well as offering expert skills training.

My partners usually come to me in search of skill-based solutions to public speaking, communication, interview skill building, or career change.

But they also come to me knowing that the issue is more complicated than skills alone.

They know their solution will also involve addressing emotions such as anxiety, confidence, nervousness, insecurity.

So we start there. As the program progresses we move into skill building.  One step at a time.

A wonderful Catalyst Partner of mine comes to mind…

We will call her Jenny.

Jenny was unhappy with her job. She didn’t find it fulfilling or meaningful. It dealt with numbers and forms and she shared that she was more of a people person. Jenny had a lot of shoulds around work, many beliefs and ideas about what she should be doing. None of which corresponded to what she wanted. When I first met her, she was not quite sure what she wanted. She just knew she was unhappy, unfulfilled, and unsatisfied with where she was. So we started there… We began to investigate what she wanted, what she cared about. She began to connect with herself, to discover her voice, her core needs, her passions. She began to be able to speak outloud what she wanted and what she enjoyed. She began to do those things in her daily life. It was wonderful to witness the change in her demeanor! To see the light in her eyes! To notice the shifts in the way she spoke and held herself. In time Jenny cultivated the courage to name what she wanted for yourself and begin to take meaningful action toward her career change. A career change that was more in line with who she was. And it all started with getting connected with herself.

Another wonderful Partner comes to mind...
We'll call her Jennifer. 

Jennifer struggled with a tremendous amount of anxiety and internal negative self-talk. She struggled with nervousness not only in her communication with colleagues at work but also with her family, and at times for no apparent reason. Jennifer reached out primarily to address her anxiety and find new and helpful ways to find peace and relaxation. Jennifer embarked on a journey with me focused on mindful awareness, learning to spend time with her discomfort, identifying stressors in her life, and gaining tools to help her reduce stress so she could connect more with herself and others. Today Jennifer is able to apply the tools and techniques that she learned when the feelings of anxiety and nervousness arise at work and at home. She practices relaxation techniques daily and has learned to embrace the part of her that was anxious and show it compassion and acceptance. I'm so proud of her! 

​It is my forever honor to do this amazing work with my partners. I am so grateful to be able to help people find peace, find compassion, and find confidence in themselves.

 It is my forever honor to do this amazing work with my partners. I am so grateful to be able to help people find peace, find compassion, and find confidence in themselves.


"The key to the program was the lovework and taking the time to complete it. Taking that little time to love yourself and honor yourself and stop the negativity. It's amazing how your entire perspective of everything can shift- personally and professionally. It was truly the key for me making such a huge shift. I realize now that I needed to come into my confidence before I could swipe away [my beliefs about others]. I had to go into myself first, own who I am, be comfortable with who I am. The lovework helped me do that, and being more compassionate, allowing myself to make a mistake, not beat myself up, give myself the space to not be perfect, take the lessons I learned and move forward. I have become more self-aware, trusting of my instincts, tuning into my inner voice, owning myself and feeling comfortable in my own skills. I now go into the room as myself, and face my fears. I feel brave, assertive. I just didn’t see it before, I was looking for applause in other people, but now I don’t need their validation to feel whole. When I stopped seeking it from other people and started giving it to myself -it helped me work through my own insecurities. I stopped comparing myself to others, and began celebrating my own little accomplishments, embracing my own idea of success."



"I spent several sessions with Rebecca to prepare for an interview. Her guidance, insights, and recommendations made all the difference. Her coaching is straightforward and illuminating--she can discern one's strengths and weakness and propose just the right regimen."


"How do you prepare for a job interview when you have no idea what questions will be asked? Rebecca helped me do just that! The tools and tips she gave me were great. I walked into the room feeling prepared to answer any question I would be asked. I felt more confident than I ever have entering the room where the interview took place, and it was the first time ever that I left a job interview feeling that I gave adequate answers to the questions asked. I highly recommend Rebecca Cooley; she taught me some valuable strategies that I will be able to use in my future endeavors."

-A. E.​​ ​

"Through working with Rebecca, I have more clearly defined what I enjoy in life and what I want to get out of life. With that I have developed goals to pursue the things that I truly value. Rebecca then helped me define manageable action steps to get from point A to point B with accountability that helped me break the complicated wishes and desires into tangible steps for which I could take immediate action. The profound take away I had was to sit down and look at different facets of my life to identify my core values. I accomplished this through focus and by becoming more mindful of my feelings and emotions.  During each of our conversations, Rebecca demonstrated a true sense of genuineness. Her no judgment approach encouraged me to dream big. And with big dreams have come new and exciting opportunities.  My confidence has soared and my jovial, fun, and charismatic  personality emerged — I have become more of the me I want to be."

-J. Kenney

"I wanted To let you know that today I got an offer for my dream job and couldn't be happier. Thank you so much for your help because without it I'm sure I wouldn't have gotten close."



"Rebecca is truly objective and best intentioned in bringing out

one's true journey or nature in life."

-Trish Kelly Belock



"Rebecca's coaching is straightforward and illuminating--she can discern one's strengths and weakness and propose just the right regimen to improve one's relationship with oneself and the world in which he or she interacts. I wholeheartedly endorse her work as a life and career coach."




"You are amazing. I am amazed at your commitment to me. I have to truly say, no one has done so much for me. I am grateful to you."
