Course description


Become a Certified Rational Emotive Behavioral Life Coach!  

  • Do your clients have big goals and dreams but they feel like there’s always something standing in their way?   
  • Do you want to empower them to go for what they REALLY want and stop holding themselves back?   
  • Do they hold themselves back because they’re afraid of uncertainty or worried about what others will think?   
  • Would you like to help people overcome overwhelm, stress, or worrying?   
  • Do a lot of your clients seem to suffer from feelings of unworthiness?   
  • Do you want to help them feel confident and happy in their everyday life?   

Learn how to life coach your clients to empower their beliefs and take back control of their lives by becoming a Certified Rational Emotive Behavioral Life Coach!   


As a life coach, you probably want nothing more than to see your clients reach their potential! You may have had the sneaky suspicion that your clients’  limiting beliefs and irrational thinking is what was holding them back, but until now you didn’t know what to do about it.   


This course will help you guide your clients to finally feel in control of your destiny! You’ll show them how to stop trying to control other people or the outside world and instead to TAKE BACK THEIR POWER by learning how to direct their own thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.  


The truth is that none of us were ever told that we have super powers because we each are the owners of the most powerful machine on the planet—the human mind! We have the ability to feel happiness, no matter what is happening around us. We have the ability to learn and change ANYTHING we want about ourselves. We have the ability to create the life we truly want, yes, even if right now it seems impossible.   


We’ve just never been taught how to use this power!   


This course is like a human mind owner’s manual! Learn how to unlock the power of the human mind so you can teach it to your clients!  


Teach them the #1 most important thing they could ever understand about themselves, which is that their thoughts are what create their emotions.   


Knowing this puts the power back in their hands because you’ll show them how to CHOOSE THEIR THOUGHTS, and by doing so they will be able to control their emotions.   


The reason this is so important for you to know is that no matter how motivated and talented your clients are, this human mind of theirs is FLAWED. Without training, everybody’s thinking is extremely IRRATIONAL. Including yours!   


The reason why is that inn our brain’s quest to interpret our world and keep us safe it misinterprets what’s happening, it makes false judgments, and it demands unreasonable things from ourselves, others, and life. Plus, after years of living around dysfunctional people we pick up their faulty belief systems.   


And that’s why this course is so important! Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy is the foundation of modern psychology. The insights and techniques of REBT have unlocked human potential in the last century and are what ultimately differentiates those who are successful from those who are not. It’s also one of the most powerful tools to use as a life coach to help your clients rewire their faulty beliefs and rip the cause of their emotional pain out by the root!   


Becoming an REBT Life Coach will give you the tools to help your clients avoid the ultimate form of failure, which is to reach their goals but still feel unfulfilled.

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.

Whew! Definitely a lot of content that I will have to revisit indeed, but so worth the time and experience personally and professionally. One thing about this course as I was going through is it gave me a lot of lingo/content to create my coaching plans and better target my audience.

review of mindset life coach certification course

by patti ainsworth
As a certified wellness/life coach since 2010.. I've continued to research my opportunity for continuous learning and improving my coaching craft. I found this course to be a cut above many others I have completed. The written and video presentations provided clear step by step formulas to apply to my own life as well as techniques for my clients. I will review my notes and renew through connections provided I'm excited to continue my transformation courses to learn how to expand my coaching business to offering online. Thank you Patti Ainsworth
