Corry and I are doing much better at communicating and it is working! I mentally refer back to your "glennism’s" and smile. Thank-you for sharing of yourself, and for keeping in touch. I also believe God puts people in our lives when we need them the most. You experienced the good and bad sides of me. We still carry your medallion - Gods' Peace.

I AM GRATEFUL TO GLENN COHEN.

Glenn’s coaching has enabled me to change my life from hurting to happiness.

I also better understand my reactive behavior and I rarely feed the “gremlin” (judgmental attitude).

 

WHY DID I ENGAGE A RELATIONSHIP COACH?

  • After a failed marriage and numerous failed relationships, at age 69, my hurt was evident in this question, “Will I ever have a bonding relationship with a woman?
  • The coaching revealed that I had essentially been dating my mother.  Mom was emotionally detached - an Ah-ha awareness took place.
  • I now have a relationship with an emotionally mature woman and I made sure of it before I dated her the first time!
  • I have re-established amicable relationships with relatives, friends and work associates.
  • I am better connected to customers.  Repeat business has increased due to referrals.

IS THE COST OF COACHING WORTH IT?

  • Sometimes I think about the cost of the coaching and vacillate about stopping to save the money.  Then an Ah-ha experience occurs through Glenn’s guidance.  The coaching brought about an awareness that has made me the happiest I have been in my life.  Money cannot buy happiness.
  • A life enhancing experience cannot be measured in dollars.  However, it can be acknowledged with gratitude.

We wish to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation for the coaching experience of Glenn Cohen.  For four months, we have been working with Glenn involving the personal dynamics of our relationship.  We are so grateful for Glenn's expertise in coaching, his compassion in working with us and his skills bringing us from a very difficult place to a place where our beautiful relationship can now grow and evolve.

 

Glen provided the working format where specific goals were designed. Through this process, he skillfully assisted us in creating new perspectives for change and aided us in replacing old fears and patterns with healthy perspectives and self discoveries for growth.  His technique aided us to understand the cycle of conflict, to move beyond fears from the wounded self, and assisted us to rise to a liberating and conscious awareness that allows true love and communication.  Today, we truly feel the tools and skills from the "I-TO-WE" coaching have allowed our relationship to become truly an emotionally intelligent one.

 

We are eternally grateful for Glenn and his successful and creative mastery of coaching.  We not only acquired the awareness of our true issues, but experience the joy, balance and happiness our relationship today now governed by admiration, trust and love, not fear.  Glenn assisted us in releasing fears, so our love could grow.  We came from experiencing barriers and blocks, to today, after our coaching with Glenn, we are planning our marriage.

In March of last year, my marriage was at the end of the line.  We had been married for seven years and we were done - thoroughly miserable and hating each other.  While the story is long and sad, the resulting conclusion is not. We were referred to Glenn by a colleague of his and had an appointment shortly thereafter.  Neither one of us wanted to go, but we did both feel obligated to explore every option possible before breaking up our family.

 

Our first appointment was rough.  We had to drag out all our dirty laundry to a complete stranger and let all the heartache hang out on the line.  I was fully expecting him to tell us to throw in the towel.  What I was not expecting was someone with Glenn’s unique combination of no BS mixed with compassion and insight telling us that there was plenty of hope left.  As the appointment went on, I knew without a shadow of a doubt that this was our guy.

 

We had gone to marital counseling before and it never really resonated with either one of us.  But the difference was that Glenn quickly became a trusted friend and confidante, physically and emotionally available as much as we needed.  He helped us; both individually and together, decipher what was at the root of our problems and how to move past them.  He helped keep our egos in check when we needed it and even helped us sort out arguments as they came up, rather than having to wait for a week to revisit it.  He listened and listened and listened and though empathetic, gave us frank and direct advice and his honest opinion as to what factors were at work.

 

He helped us understand each other by translating between the two of us when we couldn’t come up with our own words.  I cannot stress enough how the things I learned about myself as well as the human psyche have helped me, both in my marriage (8 years this January, thank you very much) as well as all relationships and even casual interactions with people.  I feel quite smart when I can advise someone by sharing the things I learned and it is so exciting to see the light bulb of understanding go off just like it did and still does with me.  I am able to do this because I had such a good teacher, who made certain that I understood and could put emotionally intelligent principles into action. 

 

Glenn will always have a special place in my heart and I know that he changed my life as well as my husbands.  We would not be married today (much more happily, of course) if it were not for him.  Quite simply, he’s the best and I am honored to know him.

When we first came to Glenn – to me it was the last thing I was going to try before giving up on our marriage.  After the first few weeks things seemed to be getting better.  Then my husband did something that pushed me out the door.

 

During our separation Glenn was always there for us and worked tirelessly with us individually.  After two months of intense coaching, we were able to recognize the real issues that were separating us and decided to get off the vicious cycle.  Now we are back together again and happier then ever.

 

Thank you Glenn for saving our marriage.  Our relationship continues to get better everyday.

Glenn I would like to thank you for the time that Rick and I have spent with you. We have been trying techniques for years--using some method or other to get over the hurdles that couples usually experience. With most of these, we do okay and find that most of the time it's the same issue, just a different set of circumstances. And naturally, I rediscover that the only person that I can work on and change would be my own individual self. I have spent many years contemplating this and when I share my challenges with Rick, I usually take on the responsibility for what and how I created this experience in my life. My inner processing leaves him "off the hook" and me "holding the bag" of what feelings that eventually become resentment or worse, emotional detachment.

 

After one session with you  we have spent many nights making "appointments" with one another so that we can be heard by the other without reactions or judgments in a safe place where the goal is not to figure out the answers, just to listen and be heard. This new approach makes the issues not about either of us. Nor are the issues in between us; they are clearly just things, separate from us and our relationship. We put them out there, in front of us for our viewing. It's interesting, I have never felt physically or emotionally closer to Rick than I do after spending this kind of time with one another. I like the experience of actually being heard and I've become a better listener to what my partner's thinking and feeling. We both feel safe to share.  Thank you for this most powerful and gentle method for effective, honest, and loving communication.

Glenn has done a workshop at our church in recent weeks and what people have told me is that not only is he practical, his material and techniques are extremely helpful. One person said "our relationship was transformed in one afternoon". Having been a therapist in the past, I personally like Glenn's work as it is a synthesis of the best of relationship theories, a few of which I practiced myself. And these were the theories and techniques most helpful to my clients.

As a newly wed couple, still enjoying our blissful new marriage...my wife and I weren't without our share of communication problems. We are both type A personalities, who were used to taking care of only ourselves.

 

While we couldn't pinpoint the root of our frustrations, we weren't afraid to look for some guidance. We are madly in love and we felt that maybe what we could use was some "preventative maintenance."

 

Interestingly enough, Glenn had dropped off his cards at my place of business several months earlier. After our initial consultation with Glenn, we KNEW that this was the guidance and support we were seeking! We believe in Glenn with all of our hearts...and if we could impart just one aspect of what Glenn has to offer, it is that he is as good at helping build fulfilling relationships as he is at revitalizing the ones that appear hopeless.

 

Once again Glenn, we thank you for providing us with the basic tools that WE needed to continue to grow as a couple.

My husband and I were ready to give up on our marriage when a friend recommended Glenn Cohen as a relationship coach.  The first time we meet with Glenn, we were both amazed how insightful he was.  During our first meeting, he quickly identified specific issues in our relationship and gave us a plan on how we could overcome these issues.

 

The thing I appreciated the most was his honesty and sincerity.  My husband and I left the first session with a feeling of hope that maybe our marriage could be saved.  We have been working on our relationship with Glenn for several months now and I can say that my relationship with my husband has improved tremendously.  Glenn is very committed to his clients and has a great passion for what he does.  I would highly recommend Glenn to anyone who needs help in their relationship.

Glenn helped me get through a difficult time by bringing insight into a problem I was unable to see properly. He did this by asking pertinent questions and having me answer them in writing. He also expressed his own observations, which helped immensely. In this way, I was able to see the blocks I was putting up. I am thankful to him and recommend his relationship and life coaching to anyone who wants to move forward in life.

 

I feel you are a godsend to, both, couples in trouble and individuals wanting to improve their potential in creating a relationship. My own marriage may possibly have been saved if we had worked with someone like you rather than a marriage counselor.

Glenn exceeded my expectations as a coach. He is an incredibly supportive and compassionate coach. He understands what is needed before I do. He makes sessions fun by being playful and authentic. In a short amount of time his sessions have profoundly impacted my personal and professional life as well as my relationship with my beloved. It's amazing how much difference gentle guidance can make.

This note is way overdue. I (we) would like to thank you for all of your help and support. How do you express “thanks” for saving a marriage? It seems too immense for a simple “thank you”, yet what else can we do? I guess one idea would be to live out the techniques you taught us and have a peaceful, loving relationship.

When the rector of our church first contacted you, Jimmy and I had been separated for a year. The legal separation/divorce papers had been written and signed, but we had not yet gone to court. I had already attended a DivoreCare course. Our marriage was basically over.

Jimmy wanted to try one more time. We had gone through marital counseling in the past, and I frankly was not very excited or interested in trying it again. I really don’t know why I agreed to work with you, but I am so thankful that I did. You gave us real hands-on, nuts-and-bolts skills to use for communication. We desperately needed these tools. Your program is such in intensive one and covers so many relational issues. Being able to call you in between sessions and talk out concerns as they arose was invaluable. After working with you for a few months, it seemed like our relationship just might have a chance after all.

As you know, Jimmy and I reconciled five months ago. We actually renewed our vows and went on a second honeymoon weekend get-away. I cannot say that our relationship is problem-free, but what relationship is? We definitely still have issues on which to continue working, but I can honestly say I am very happy that we did not go through with a divorce. We have a wonderful six year old son, who is thrilled to have his family back together. As long as we keep working hard, I am confident that we can have a healthy, even happy marriage.

Again, Jimmy and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Have you ever noticed that when you come in contact with someone of light, or something of light that you come away with a new layer of serenity and centeredness? That’s what I went home with from your workshop, from listening to you and from words of your program.

Thank you , light and blessings,

Glenn and I have been working together for only one month now. At the time we first met, my marriage was at a complete loss, though I thought. I felt as if I was lost as well.

After a short time with Glenn, I realized that I had a lot to learn and gain from working with him regardless if wife and I were to ever get back together. I began the process of gaining my Conscious Awareness and finding my Peaceful Soul. This was huge for me. I was able to identify a number of areas that were constantly and subconsciously pulling me down. I was also able to become conscious of my thoughts and realize how damaging my thought process was to me. The awareness process enabled me to take responsibility for my past and future actions and allow me to put down the baggage I have been carrying that had predetermined my behavior for so many years. This was the most intense and freeing feeling, I have ever had.

When I was able to move on to finding my Peaceful Soul, I was scared to death to confront my thoughts. Where they originated, what affect they were having on my life and how I was going to deal with them. After going through the exercises, I soon realized that I was actually freeing myself from the contaminated thinking that had ruled my life forever.

In just 4 weeks working with Glenn, I have been able to pull my life together, really live in life everyday, and not have life live around me. Little does my wife know, but she has been affected by my new found focus on life and she and I are getting closer together every day. I attribute my progress in my relationship and my life to the workings of Christ and the help of Glenn. Glenn has always been there and I’m sure he will continue to be a part of my life for a long time.

“I have had the privilege of knowing Glenn for some 10 years – first through his father on the tennis court, and then sadly, through the untimely death of his brother. Glenn’s work is very dear to him. I think it will be of assistance to my fellow clergy who wish to assist persons struggling with marriage issues, but are lacking the time in our busy schedules to provide couple with proper tools.”
