Course description


Transform the life of your clients and yourself by using CBT: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Techniques and Tools. 

Have you ever had clients who had big dreams and great potential but their limiting beliefs and negative self talk held them back? Or maybe you’ve experienced this yourself?

Do you want to empower yourself and others to master the most powerful tool of all—the mind?

Help your clients get unstuck and finally take those actions they’ve been putting off.

Help them stop feeling out of control and learn to control their thoughts, emotions, and life.

Help them make better decisions, including the hard ones.

Help them stop self-sabotaging or holding themselves back because they fear failure.

Help them tame their inner critic and develop self-confidence.

Become a Cognitive Behavioral Coach and use CBT empower your clients to master their mindset.

Most people never reach their potential because even thought their minds are the most complex and amazing machines on the planet, they’ve inherited faulty programming. But, it’s not their fault—they were never taught how their mind works or how much power they have to create the life they want.

They were probably never taught that they have the ability to change ANYTHING about themselves—including their intelligence, talent, abilities, and personality.

They were probably never taught that they have the ability to control their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.

They may have been told they could be or do anything they wanted when they grew up, but they never believed it. Now they’ve grown up and they’ve realized that life is supposed to be more than what they’ve allowed for themselves, and so they hire a coach—that’s you! But, they still have a million thoughts that run through their minds that make them doubt themselves and believe their dreams aren’t possible.

As a coach, you can help your client tame their monkey mind—the one that’s always negative and distracting them from creating the life they want. This course will help you give their monkey mind a banana so they can stay focused and empowered as they move toward their goals.

This course is like the human mind owner’s manual you never knew existed.

In this course, you’ll learn how to use cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, on yourself and your clients. CBT teaches us that our thoughts create our emotions and influence our behavior. We can learn how to have greater control over our thoughts, and therefore, we can have greater control over our emotions and our behaviors.

In this course you’ll learn techniques for reprogramming the mind. 

  • You’ll learn how thoughts and emotions work and how to help your clients develop self awareness and understand why they think and act the way they do using CBT core principles.
  • You’ll help them learn how to stop negative thinking in the act and retrain their monkey mind to think more positively and clearly using CBT techniques.
  • You’ll help them stop self-sabotaging behaviors and bad habits using CBT techniques. 
  • CBT will help you: Stop stalling and overcome procrastination
  • CBT will help you: Take those actions they’ve been putting off in only 5 seconds
  • CBT will help you: Make decisions more rationally, including feeling more confident making hard decisions
  • CBT will help you: Stop incessant worrying and silence their inner critic
  • CBT will help you: Overcome fear and resistance that is holding them back
  • CBT will help you: Manage anger, cope with stress, and minimize anxiety
  • CBT will help you: Feel more peaceful and optimistic
  • CBT will help you: Stop feeling out of control and take back their power

Awesome course with a wealth of information provided to students. With the knowledge obtained, I am confident my clients will become aware that they too can change the way they think.

I have been working with the concepts in this course for many years and wish they had been nicely packaged like this when I first needed them. The material is well presented and easy to understand. It is also life changing. Read it. Do it. Practice it. Share it and you will be amazed at the life you can lead.

I’m truly grateful that I found this program. The information is very detailed and I love the layout of the course. It was easy to follow along and the materials provided has given me the confidence and tools to create a solid one on one coaching framework in addition to my group coaching. If you’re on the fence about investing, get off the fence and join. Keep in mind that it is not an ICF accredited course but the materials you receive can be applied to enhance your coaching experience and the price is very reasonable.

Joeel & Natalie Rivera

Joeel & Natalie Rivera

Meet the Instructors

Joeel and Natalie Rivera are a dynamic duo, as a husband-and-wife team, partners in crime, and BFFs! They are freedom junkies and prolific content creators who have been coaching, speaking, writing, and teaching for more than a decade.

Joeel is a former psychology professor with a Master’s Degree in Counseling and Education and is currently completing his dissertation on eudaemonic happiness for his Ph.D. in Psychology. Using the science of psychology and human potential, they train leading edge entrepreneurs, leaders, life coaches, and individuals how to master the power of their mind and create their destiny.


Joeel & Natalie have started more than a dozen businesses, including (in chronological order) imports, photography, non-profit teen center, life coaching, t-shirts, magazine, book publishing, professional speaking, conferences and workshops, holistic virtual office center, online directory, life coach training, online course publishing AND MORE!

They’ve taken what they’ve learned through their successes and (most importantly) failures, and today they run a powerhouse education and publishing company.


JOEEL’S BEGINNINGS: From an early age, Joeel faced adversity, including failing his first year of college and losing his brother to a car accident at the age of 19. This experience transformed his life and instilled a deep sense of purpose by inspiring him to give his brother Daniel’s name a meaning by helping others find their true path.

In 2009, he fulfilled his dream of opening a youth center in honor of his brother. Shortly thereafter, life called him a different direction and Natalie answered a Craigslist ad and took over his position of co-founder of this business.

NATALIE’S BEGINNINGS: After a decade of living a life that wasn’t authentically hers, and developing Chronic Fatigue Syndrome as a result, Natalie let go of everything and completely transformed. Through her journey to healing, she rediscovered her true self and greater purpose—to be an entrepreneur and inspire others to transform their lives. Natalie “retired” from the rat race at 24, put herself through school as a freelance designer. Days before graduating college (finally) she answered an ad for a business partner running a non-profit teen center.

JOINING FORCES: While Joeel & Natalie met for only 30 minutes during this transition of ownership, two years later they reconnected and recognized how synchronistically the stars had aligned to bring them together. They joke of the irony of how they “starting the same business, just not at the same time” and they’ve been co-creating in life and business ever since.

JOINING THE INFORMATION AGE: Joeel & Natalie joined the information age and became INFOpreneurs in 2014 when they went “green” and transitioned their print magazine into digital format. They found they could reach an exponential, worldwide market at a fraction of the time and cost—and they were hooked! They closed their physical offices and began converting their in-person workshops and training programs into information products and online courses.

THE NIGHTMARE/BLESSING: Then, in 2015 they received a proverbial “kick in the pants” to go “all-in” to the online world when Joeel fell ill after traveling overseas. Natalie became his full-time caretaker and their businesses crumbled down around them. They decided they never wanted to be in that situation again, so they dedicated themselves to converting their training, coaching and speaking programs into online courses that would outlive them. Their new business model is based on investing in “the new real estate”, which is creating passive income through building a portfolio of educational content.

Today they have 300,000+ students from 195 countries. They are passionate about sharing their story and inspiring entrepreneurs to monetize their passion and knowledge in this new digital education economy.
