I stepped into Glenn’s little office in the winter of 2017.  This stage of my life was the darkest place I had been in.  Having the childhood, I had, coupled with one failed marriage and a slew of traumatic events, all led up to the moment I walked in there.  On the surface, it was a last-ditch effort to save my current marriage…a marriage I had already written off because my past had me living what I thought I deserved in my life.  I had a history of knowingly messing things up to make sure I controlled the end of the relationship because, in the end, everyone leaves.  Now, in the depths of my mind, I knew I needed real help because I wasn’t just on the verge of losing my wife.  I was toying with the idea of suicide.

 

You see, I had been struggling for years.  Decades really.  The early years of my life sucked but I don’t really remember all of the things that happened.  The things I do remember have stuck with me forever and established my self-worth.  The chaos in my mind was never ending.  When I stepped into Glenn’s office, I hadn’t just given up on my marriage; I had given up on my life.  I remember the night I told my wife that I didn’t think our relationship was going to work out. I also remember going to the guest room for the night and looking into the clauses of my life insurance to see if suicide would prevent her from receiving the payment.  That’s when I knew that I had to change something, but I didn’t know what.  I went on a late-night drive to try to clear my head.  I felt numb.  I had felt numb for years. 

 

As a police officer in metro Atlanta and a Soldier in the Army, I had dealt with many things that put me in dangerous situations.  It got to a point that I became more careless about the situations I was in because, what was the worst that could happen?  I get hurt?  At least I’d feel something again.  I lose my life?  I wasn’t enjoying it anyways.  January, 2016, that almost became a reality for me.  Even that situation didn’t faze me at the time.  My supervisor at the police department had to make me see the circumstances of that night for me to even realize what happened and how close I had come to being killed.

 

I say all of this to make sure it’s clear, I was done with life.  I didn’t go into Glenn’s office with motivation to get help.  It was a “check the box” kind of thing for me.  The only reason I went to see Glenn was to try to make my wife happy because she refused to give up on our marriage.

 

Immediately after meeting Glenn, I remember him sitting in his chair and just talking to me like a normal person.  He didn’t treat me like I was damaged or broken.  Every counselor I had been to treated me like I was broken.  They always said they could fix me.  Saying you can fix me just tells me I’m broken and you can see it.  That doesn’t help.  That only makes it worse.  I already couldn’t stand who I was and now someone I don’t know wants to change me.  Glenn connected with me almost immediately and, without me stating any of my feelings, told me that he wanted to help me discover who I was.  That really hit my soul.  I needed to find out who I was, not change into who someone thought I should be. 

 

In regards to my marriage, I told myself that I would give him a shot unless he whipped out ole faithful…”the Bible says marriage is forever.  You’re just going through a phase.  You need to weather the storm and work it out” . I quit going to counseling because that is all I ever heard. Like I was just going through a phase and needed to get over myself.  If it was that easy, I wouldn’t be looking for help. 

 

Glenn made me laugh when I mentioned counseling.  He immediately fired back that he was not a counselor, and this was not counseling.  He said that he was there to help us discover ourselves individually.  He explained that once we understand ourselves we would be able to fix our relationship on our own.  He said he would give us the tools to do the work and we would determine the outcome of our relationship on our own.

 

We decided to hire him, obviously.  At our first session, we went over our questionnaires together and he touched on a few things for each of us.  We did a couple more sessions as a couple before Glenn knew us enough to recommend separate sessions with him.  The individual sessions made me nervous at first.  I didn’t like the feeling of not having an out when I didn’t feel open to talking.  Those individual sessions, I’m confident, saved my marriage and my life. 

 

Glenn has a unique way of doing things.  I didn’t understand what we were doing in the moment we were doing it but when he brought each exercise full circle, and explained everything he had just learned about me, I was blown away.  He was able to tell me a specific age range and event type he believed happened to me that led to me being wired to react a certain way.  He was spot on every time.  Things I have never told anyone, he picked out like he has known me my entire life.  Once I was comfortable enough to really open myself up to change, we went to work.  We dissected and rewired my mind to think differently in exact same situations.  He helped me live the statement “I am not the product of my past”.  I had always heard it.  I have learned it.  I never knew how to live that statement.  I took all of this work with me when I deployed to Afghanistan.  While deployed, I continued to work on myself using the tools Glenn gave me.  I really found myself using the tools Glenn taught me.  I released the anchors I was still holding onto with my mom, my biological dad, and the rest of my past.  I finally stopped looking back on my life and started looking forward to the future and who I was going to be.

 

Now, 3 years later, I don’t even recognize the person I was back then.  Social media memories come up from back then and I get emotional because I can now see the sheer misery, I was living in.  I can feel that pain now when I couldn’t feel it then.  My anxiety is still around, but now I am self-aware of my mind to the point that I can identify the anxiety coming and calm myself without it ever being present.  I no longer have a constant sense of impending doom lingering.  I don’t feel like I’m always struggling to be good enough for everyone.  The biggest win for me is that I no longer look for the acceptance of others to feel self-worth.  I have inner peace now that I’ve never felt before.  The work is rough.  You will leave some sessions sweating.  Others, fighting back tears.  You will be exhausted.  You will dig up stuff you have suppressed for decades.  You have to accept the pain to feel again.  I owe my life to Glenn and his teaching/coaching.  Thanks for everything Glenn!

Where do I even begin to share the wonderful journey that is Glenn Cohen Coaching?

 

I am thirty years old and have had my fair share of traumatic experiences. I struggle with anxiety and depression on a very deep level. To make a long story short, I went to Glenn because I was, quite simply, over my sh*t. I had a clouded vision of what my issues were and I knew that nobody could help me, BUT me. Those who struggle like myself know the hardest part of depression is taking that first step towards betterment. Sometimes you wait so long it's hard to envision a life of happiness, even in the slightest. But someway, somehow, I did take that first step and I do not exaggerate when I tell you - Glenn is the best thing that ever happened to me.

 

In order to love others you have to first learn to love yourself. The scary part about sadness/depression is that it gets very comfortable. Remaining oblivious to the underlying symptoms is much easier than sifting through pain to better understand WHY that feeling is there in the first place. In order to rise and grow from your trauma, you first have to go back to that point in time and simply wade in those feelings for a while. This is what Glenn does. He takes you on a journey to pinpoint those triggering moments that may be the reason your thoughts are so negative today. He reprograms your brain's way of thinking. For me, personally, he turned my red thoughts to green and aided me in taking back my power over my emotions. And I am here to tell you - the relief I feel today is nothing less than extraordinary.

 

Let me be very clear about one thing though - YOU are the one who has to put in the work. Glenn gives you all the necessary tools to better yourself but what makes his process so wonderful is he shows you how to use these tools in your everyday life. His process has an end point and once completed you need to use what you learn to continue to grow. My last session with Glenn was almost two months ago and I am still in great spirits and focusing on my path to enlightenment. My relationships are better, my work ethic is solid, and I am also helping those around me without giving a part of myself away.

 

Each journey is different - but if you are ready to dive into the ugly parts of your life and finally let go of whatever may be holding you back from reaching your full potential, go have a consultation. I am a different person today thanks to Glenn and not only do I see that, but everyone around me sees that as well. Take back your power :)

Glenn’s coaching techniques have made me a happy spouse! My husband had been dealing with difficult circumstances and we seemed to be in a hopeless place of despair and unhappiness. A friend of mine highly recommended working with Glenn. We went to his webpage and read about his program but were unfamiliar with the idea of “life coaching” or his credentials. We decided to move forward only because of the testimonial of my friend, and I am so thankful we did.  

Almost immediately after my husband began working with Glenn, I noticed a difference. Glenn was able to help my husband see the limitless opportunities open to him by changing his perspective when encountering conflict. He was able to identify the things that trigger a negative response and understand why they were triggers.

Glenn has created an environment where his clients are 100% safe to explore thoughts and ideas. Glenn’s non-judging approach breaks down the false barriers built since childhood and open the possibility to life in a new, healthy reality. He worked with both of us teaching his Mindful Discussion Techniques (MDT) and how to de-fuse a situation.

The journey has given me a better understanding of myself, my husband and people in general. I do not know where we would be if we had not met Glenn, so I cannot recommend him more highly.

I sought out the help of Glenn because I was repeating the same negative behavior patterns and it was affecting not just me but my marriage and my children. I needed to dive deep and explore myself in a way that standard counseling had not helped me before. Glenn will give you the tools you need to help yourself IF you are willing to open yourself to his techniques and do the necessary work. 

 

Glenn is the reason I am able to move forward with a clear understanding of what I need for myself. If you are on this page wondering if his technique is right for you and if he is the person you need to see --it is, he is amazing to work with! Trust your gut, do the work, and live in a much happier state of mind.

 

I cannot recommend Glenn enough! I am grateful for him and the methods he has taught me.

I went to see Glenn to get help because I was having a hard time. I wasn't quite sure how to pin point what was going on but I knew there were behaviors and patterns that I wanted to get rid of. Glenn helped me understand where these patterns started, how I developed them, why I held on to them and then he gave me the tools to set me free of them. 

 

I have been to a therapist before and this experience was far different from that. Glenn doesn't just listen and help you work through a problem, only to be met with the same problem months or years down the road at another rough patch. He focuses on helping you change, to become a better person, the person you seek to be. His goal is transformation and I am so thankful I found Glenn.

 

I am doing better than ever. I am so much closer to being the person I want to be - the wife, daughter, sister, friend, coworker, employee that I know I can be. My husband, parents and friends all noticed a change. Because of what he taught me I feel I have control over my reactions and how I live my life. My habits no longer have control over me. It is so freeing!

 

Thank you so much, Glenn- I could never repay you!!

"A friend of mine recommended working with a life coach that deeply impacted her. As I was working through a tough transition phase in my life, Glenn Cohen was introduced to me. I have experienced many different types of "therapies" but nothing compares to my time working with Glenn. I learned that my healing process doesn't just have to do with what was happening in my life right now or the obvious things that pop into my consciousness. Through Glenn's coaching, I was able to look at the things beneath the surface that were the root of my pain so I am now able to move forward to live in my true authentic self. His approach is powerful yet gentle. The joy and freedom I now feel is something I have never experienced before. I am forever grateful. I cannot recommend Glenn Cohen enough."

“Contrary to many of his clients, I actually found Glenn when in need of professional development. Together we developed a vision of what my future would look like and then worked hard to put thoughts into actions. Glenn is one of those people who pushes you to become the best you can be, but always in a supportive way. Because of his incredible ability to understand people and their behaviors, he was quickly able to help me translate my feelings into a tangible dream…and help me achieve it. Glenn is amazing and I am so grateful for his guidance!” Gabi

I heard about Glenn through a friend. They spoke about how different he was from other therapists. I must say I've had worked on my own "Issues" with different therapists at different points in my life.. and stayed pretty much the same. I began to accept that the way I felt was just part of life, and that I would probably have to live with the cards I've been dealt. 

came to Glenn when I was at an ultimate low point in my life. I don't know what it was but we connected right off the bat. He got me. Glenn was different than any other therapist I've ever come across. He is a real healer. He dove in to the core. He finds the seed, and the root of whatever it is that's going on and that's what he goes for. He was able to get through layers that where built over an entire life span in no time.

One of the things I loved was that he doesn't circle around the bush. He tells it like it is. He holds you to your truth. And he will help you find it if it's lost. Glenn knew that I got on the right path before I even realized. But once I got on that path- there was no going back. I even felt different looking at myself in the mirror. I became the best version of my self and it's all thanks to him.

Glenn is a compassionate, dedicated selfless human being. It takes a special human like him to do this kind of work. I am forever grateful our paths crossed.

I spent a couple of years hearing about Glenn through no less than six friends who had been working with him. When I sat down to email him about becoming a potential client, I wasn't exactly sure what to expect or what I was looking to work through for that matter.

He assured me when we sat down to talk that we would figure it out together as long as I trusted and committed to the process. I knew I was committed to finding a more joyful existence and so it began. I've never felt so comfortable and supported through an intensive but worthwhile journey.

His work is so uniquely his and unlike anything I've ever experienced. While both challenging and emotional I can say without a doubt that I left each session a bit lighter than the one before.

If you are lucky enough to have the opportunity to work with Glenn, show up with an open mind and an open heart and do the work. You won't regret it.

Today is bittersweet for me, as I have graduated from Glenn's coaching.  

I came to Glenn back in January at the recommendation of a friend. I was going through a divorce and a big move, and I really was just not in a great spot mentally and emotionally. I knew the moment I walked into Glenn's office I had found the right person to assist me.

His energy, whiteboards everywhere, his directness...it was all what I needed. I have never worked with anyone who has been so invested in my own emotional, physical and mental health as Glenn is. I cried almost every session, rolled my eyes, complained some; but I also laughed, joked, smiled, and found "me" again. I found the confident, positive, happy person I always knew was inside me.

Glenn has not only helped me personally, but also in business. His leadership and management advice are on point. It is through Glenn I learned how intertwined your personal and business lives are. I had a goal for a new position with my employer back in March. Glenn helped me succeed in obtaining the new position and has helped me grow tremendously as a leader and manager.

I am sad today, but beyond thankful and grateful for everything Glenn has done for me. I tell everyone about Glenn. Every single person needs a Glenn in their life. He is not just any Life Coach. Glenn came into my life at just the right time. I KNOW this was not by chance. Whether you have a personal or business need, I HIGHLY recommend Glenn. ???

I’ll start off by saying it has become a common phrase of mine to say “They need a Glenn in their life”.  

Glenn has been so instrumental in my personal growth and discovery and I am so grateful for his wisdom, compassion, and guidance. Glenn is more than just a life coach, he has become a friend, a trusted ally, a person I know I can always count on even if he is saying what I don't want to hear but what I need to hear. When you are seeking life coaching in whatever capacity, whether it be for relationship, personal growth, career, family, childhood, and so forth, it goes without saying you are seeking help from the right person. I do not live locally (we have Zoom sessions) but a friend referred me to Glenn when she knew that the marriage counseling we were getting at the time was no longer helpful or giving us the tools to grow and move us forward.

Glenn helped us both work on our relationship and ourselves individually, which in turn helped both. Glenn helped propel us forward from a place of what I thought was a place of no return. We are both so much stronger well-rounded people who are much more in tune with ourselves and each other. Whether we ultimately decide to stay together or not, we can do so now in a place of love, deep respect and appreciation of who we both are, instead of a place of blame, toxicity, and pain.

Glenn is there to listen and to help you talk through things, but he isn't going to just yes you. He will make you really look at yourself, deep down and hold yourself and others accountable, but without blaming or judgement. Instead he gives you insight and understanding of why we partake in certain behaviors and learning what is the root of it, while helping us to process meaning and redefining that meaning we assign to things. Once you have that understanding, you are empowered.

It is so critical to get the right counselor when you are dealing with such important work on yourself or your relationships, all of which is life altering. With our first counselor (and being in therapy for the first time in my life) I felt we were being taken advantage of with our vulnerable situation and sessions just dragged out with a huge financial impact, without much to show for it other than regurgitating pain over and over.

Any session with Glenn will have work that is going to be raw and bring to light pain that you may want to coast over, which is imperative to uncover honesty and bring conscious awareness. With Glenn it is the opposite of being taken advantage of, he will never turn you away any time you need to talk if he is able, but he also gives you the tools to be able to lean on yourself too.

I knew off the bat from my friends’ reference, reading the other testimonials and then getting Glenn’s very communicate background information and homework he assigned for us to fill out answering multiple forms of question on ourselves first thing, that there was a world of a difference and something truly special. Glenn took that paperwork and he would read on his own time to jumpstart the process and cover what would take months to come out so that he could help us faster.

If you are there to show up and be present and willing to do the work, you will expand yourself exponentially. Glenn is also patient with you and understands the emotional process and most important shares all the learning and knowledge he can with you so that you understand it on your own.

I wish we could clone Glenn, and I know that as painful as the reasons are why we found ourselves seeking Glenn initially, what we have gotten out of it will be with us for life and a continual journey of blossoming into our truest most loving selves, so that we learn to take care of ourselves first so that we can then take care and love others.

Thank you, Glenn, from the bottom of my heart.

When I first started with Glenn, I was what you call a “hot mess”. I was anxious, sometimes short tempered, and always thinking what if. I never focused on the present.

What amazed me throughout this process is how much bad energy I was able to release meeting with him. He has changed how I view life situations and has provide me a different approach on what life brings to me. I know how to focus on the present and how to handle the good the bad and the ugly.

I communicate better, my relationships are better, and I just feel better about myself. He has made me realize you have to release the resentment in the past and you have to be happy with yourself. He has changed my life and helped me be the person I am supposed to be.

I am very grateful.

Glenn uses techniques that are different from the traditional talk therapy found in most psychology or coaching offices. The frameworks that he uses help each individual tap into their subconscious and personal narrative and effectively re-wire their thought patterns into more functional ones. This allows the client to work through experiences that have affected them and hindered them from being their strongest self. His approach is a process of self-actualization and it really works. I have been amazed at the inner strength I have developed. I accomplish more every day now because I am emotionally connected with my goals. Working with Glenn has changed my life.

I came to Glenn at a time that I felt overwhelmed with everything going on in my life. It's not the first time I got "stuck" in an anxiety/depressive mindset. We worked through a lot of pent up energy from my past, something I didn't even know existed, among lots of other exercises. Letting go, forgiveness, recognizing my patterns, etc. are all part of my healing process. I learned so much from Glenn, and continue to use the new skill set for my calm, focused, and most important to me, happy mind.

I had the pleasure of working with Glenn from the late summer of '17 until early winter '18. My original intent in working with Glenn was to increase my confidence after transitioning to South Carolina and finding myself in a world of uncertainty and doubt.  

 

What I found by working with Glenn was that, and much more! Glenn has tremendous ability to challenge your thinking, question for deeper meaning and push you beyond your comfort zone from an area of care and compassion. His coaching style was just what I needed; direct & unwavering.

 

With this coaching style I was able to see results immediately. Not just within my confidence, but also with my patience, understanding, compassion, listening skills and happiness. With the techniques and strategies Glenn equipped me along with tools I can use in the future when I need to re-establish my grounding.

 

If you're looking for an outstanding coach that will focus on your results, look no further than Glenn Cohen!

I was in a pretty low place when I first met Glenn. I cried during our introductory session before I had even officially hired him.

A life change had thrown me into a cycle of constant negativity, anxiety and worry. I lost myself and my zest for life that I once had, and I had no idea how to get it back. Working with Glenn I learned about myself and started to understand what happened and why I was feeling the way I was. He taught me the tools to help me help myself. Making the effort to implement these in my daily life was a huge factor in my transformation.

I'm extremely pleased to say, that, thanks to Glenn, I broke the cycle of negativity and became a happy, grateful person that is excited about the future instead of anxious about it. THANK YOU GLENN!

I engaged Glenn to help guide me through a life decision that will probably remain the single most transformational decision I make in my life. I entered trying to find answers of; am I still in love, what’s changed and why, why am I so unhappy, why am I carrying so much guilt and reservations to ultimately determine if I could make a re-connection or chart a separate path within my marriage. Living as roommates and focusing all energy on raising our children along with my climb of the corporate ladder; I knew I couldn’t allow the disconnection to remain. Glenn facilitated conversation, offered questions and through a process of education and exploration he LEAD me to discover the answers to those questions for myself. On this journey, we reached into my past, explored other relationships that were influencers. But most importantly, Glenn taught me how to focus beyond the external pressures and influences and find what spiritually and emotionally drove me as a person; I connected and looked inward for answers. Glenn listens, asks the challenging questions and offers his advice and expertise that also has had a positive impact on how I ‘show up’ in other parts of my life.

 

I’m forever grateful for his time and investment in me. For his empathy and understanding for the low points and celebrating the highs. For the new opportunity to learn through proven concepts, powerful exercises, recommended authors and homework but mainly for his support that uncovered the strength and courage to make the right decision for me.

 

My best compliment recently was from someone I hadn’t seen in months who said immediately, you’re absolutely glowing, what’s changed?! Yes, she could sense the energy of my new beginning as I launch out as a single woman who’s standing taller and more confident, whose children deep down inside know their mom is happier and someday will understand this decision was for them too, who leans into having tough conversations, who will foster deeper more genuine relationships, who is vulnerable and okay with imperfection and who will learn to feel love again.

My experience working with Glenn has changed my life. He gets to the root of the issues and actually uses practical techniques to change the way you think and feel, rather than just listening to you talk and offering advice. The positive changes in my spiritual and emotional well-being from the time I started working with him have been drastic. I can't thank him enough. I would highly recommend Glenn.

''Don't lie to me, I am your coach, why would you lie to your coach?''.  Glenn Cohen changed my life and the way I view myself in my life. 

 

My girlfriend and I had a son in February and it was a very traumatic experience, such to an extent that I shut down and pushed them away.  We would fight every day and I would do the bear minimum to help with my son or be a part of my family, I just wanted to be left alone and not bothered. 

 

My girlfriend left me, took him and I thought I didn't care till I went and saw Glenn with them and realized I missed them and that everything I had done up until that point was not who I was.  I went into seeing Glenn as I had everything to that point since my son’s birth, I didn't care and just wanted to get it over with because I believed nothing was wrong with me.

 

After my first solo session with Glenn my world was opened and I was like holy shit, this guy is gonna break me down to the very bottom and he did.  Glenn took me to my bottom and helped me climb all the way back up and create a new view of the world and taught me how to love myself.

 

Seeing Glenn was the greatest decision I have made because I am who I believe I need to be in my family as a father and a boyfriend.  Glenn taught me that you’re going to get knocked down and that it is how you get back up which will help you learn.

 

Greatest Coach ever.  Thank you, Glenn, for everything you have done for me and my family, I know that in the future if I ever need to see or talk to anyone Glenn Cohen will be the only person I call.
