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.

Joeel & Natalie Rivera

Joeel and Natalie Rivera are professional speakers, trainers, and coaches. Their mission is to provide tools that empower people to ignite their dreams,  unleash their potential and fulfill their purpose. Through their  company, Transformation Services, Inc., they provide digital content  publishing, online courses, and life coach training programs that act as  a catalyst for personal empowerment. Joeel  is a former psychology professor with a Master’s Degree in Counseling  and Education and is currently completing his dissertation for his Ph.D.  in Psychology, with an emphasis on happiness. 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.They  are serial entrepreneurs who challenge and inspire others to take their  power back through self-employment as INDIEpreneurs, (self-employed  freedom junkies). Between the two of them, they’ve started over a dozen  businesses, from photography to a non-profit teen coaching center, and  from an import business to a holistic virtual office. They  became INFOpreneurs in 2014 when they fully transitioned their print  magazine into digital format because they found they could reach an  exponential, worldwide market at a fraction of the time and cost. They  closed their physical offices and began converting their in-person  workshops and speeches into information products and online courses. Then, in 2015 they received a proverbial “kick in the pants” to go  “all-in” when Joeel fell ill after traveling overseas. Unable to leave  the house, they continued reach and inspire their market by creating 50  online courses in only 2 years, including digitizing their popular life  coach training programs and certifications. Today, they have served 300,000+ students from 195 countries.
