Your Resource for Personal and Professional Communication Training

Warm Welcome! 

from Master Coach Rebecca Cooley

Hello Lovely Person! 

I am so excited that you have taken this amazing first step to learn how my course offering in Public Speaking & Interpersonal Communication can offer you the strategies you are looking for to connect more authentically! It is my best guess that you're here because you've tried various other solutions to public speaking and communication nervousness 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 with easy to implement strategies. A solution that addresses intrinsic as well as skill-building goals.  I get it! I've been there!  I have spent over 25 years and over 1000 hours learning techniques seeking solutions myself. And I have been sharing these strategies with my partners for over 11 years. I'm here for you!  My online courses provide support and solutions through online training combined with live group calls. 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 going into a room of strangers that you turned around and went the other way?

Would you rather test out of a public speaking class, then face the thought of having to give speeches for an entire semester?

Was your communication nervousness ever so severe that you created scripts to make a phone call to order pizza? 

Did the thought of going up to a complete stranger ever make you queasy? 

Were you ever terrified that someone would tell a joke and everyone would laugh except you?  

Do you experience fear of being caught off guard in conversation and being stumped?  

Have you kept quiet instead of speaking up because you worried what other people would think of you? 

Did you ever go to a gathering and hope that someone would talk to you because you had no idea what to say? 

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

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’ll call her Alice. Alice reached out to me because she was having difficult communicating and connecting with her supervisor of 7 years.

The situation had escalated and she found herself feeling insecure on a regular basis and at odds, often engaging in conflicting communication.

When she met with me the first time, the relationship had deteriorated into distrust.

As we began our process, Alice was determined and committed to doing whatever was needed. She knew the issue was about communication but also about her emotions...

At those early stages, what was needed was her honesty with herself and her willingness to look at her part. She was willing to do both.

Because of that, she was committed to the self-reflection and homework that I suggested.

She began to build her own feelings of self-worth and confidence through self-compassion work. Gradually, Alice was able to extend that compassion to her supervisor.

She began to practice the suggested communication techniques I offered and in time began to rebuild the trust between her and her supervisor.

From Alice’s reports and updates, the trust was being rebuilt on both sides.

Her success was a combination of her doing the work, her commitment, and her willingness to recognize that communication skills are much more complex than skill building. I’m so proud of her!

While Alice’s success is very personalized to her, I have helped hundreds of other partners over the years reach their own personal and professional success.

Another wonderful Catalyst Partner comes to mind...

We'll call him Jim. 

Jim was a supervisor at a large non-profit organization. Each week he was required to give an update at the leadership team meeting. Often he would speak as little as possible, and tried not to be noticed. Jim initially reached out to me for help with professional public speaking and communication. Although his primary goal was to communicate with more ease, his secondary goal was to increase confidence in himself, and to learn strategies for reducing nervousness when speaking up. He had ideas but never shared them because of fear. Through the course of the program with me, Jim committed himself to reducing his negative self-talk, identifying his beliefs about himself and others, and doing things everyday that helped him face his fears. By the end of the program, Jim had established himself as a vocal and contributing member of the leadership team. He knew his ideas were valuable not because others were telling him so, but because he had built his internal confidence and he came to know his own worth. Go Jim! 

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. 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."


"I would highly recommend Rebecca Cooley! We hired her to coach our speakers for an event, which included general presentation skills and timing. She was great about keeping me informed on their progress and making suggestions about the overall theme of the content to ensure the speakers were heading in the right direction (I was not in the sessions, as they were private between her and the speaker). At the event, the speakers were all amazing and we had a large number of comments on their exceptional speaking ability. So clearly, the coaching worked! In fact, I have already spoken to Rebecca about hiring her for another upcoming speaker event.
-Courtney Edwards

"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 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."
